All You Need To Know About Whitewater and Whitewater Paddleboards

Whitewater starts to form when a river's gradient changes to the extent that it starts to generate enough turbulence to trap air within the water. This results in the formation of an unstable current that froths. Due to the froth, the water appears opaque and white.

Whitewater Rafting is an outdoor recreational activity that makes use of an inflatable stand-up paddleboard to navigate the river or other bodies of water. This sport is often done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water for entertainment.


Picking The Best SUP Board For Yourself

Inflatable stand-up paddleboards are undoubtedly the best type of paddle boards when it comes to whitewater. However, finding the best inflatable SUP for rivers is a challenging task for every beginner. The right inflatable paddleboard will feature sturdy construction and enhanced stability compared to rigid boards. These features make them an ideal choice for handling a whitewater’s rough and unexpected course.

These inflatable SUPs can help you maneuver easily through protruding rocks to speedy whitewater rapids. With the right inflatable SUPs with you, you can take on the most extreme river conditions without even slight difficulty.


Start With Dimensions

To buy yourself an inflatable SUP that works on fast-paced rivers with whitewater rapids, you need one that comes with specific dimensions. The best inflatable SUPs that you can use for whitewater paddling have a wider template measuring around 32-34 inches and are relatively shorter, measuring between 10'6" to 11'0".

Another thing to note is that your SUP board should have a pointed nose that is well-suited for cutting through chop and rapids. You’ll also want to search for a board that has a durable deck pad so that it offers as much traction as possible.

These specific dimensions on an inflatable paddleboard make it a great pick for a whitewater board because the extra inches on the width give you a more stable ride and better maneuverability when riding down rapids.

A shorter length is also better because it makes surfing easier around protruding elements in the whitewater, such as rocks or tree branches. 

Paddleboarding is supposed to be an enjoyable and fun sport. To make your day with family and friends more enjoyable, WOWSEA has designed a remarkable inflatable paddleboard that can sail on whitewater without any trouble.
