The ambition of MOAI paddle boards is to create the most innovative and high-quality water sports products in the industry, with a cutting-edge design, that is affordable for the recreational market.
At MOAI they feel the urge to give back and make the world a better place. Everyone deserves the opportunity to enjoy nature, and play on the water.
Therefore they collaborate with the Waves for Change organization in Africa to support their amazing work in changing lives, one wave at a time.
Together with Waves for Change, they help create a better future for poor and disadvantaged children from poor backgrounds, by providing ‘surf therapy’.
With every purchased MOAI board, you Stand up for a better world, since they allocate a significant part of their profits as donations for brand new paddle boards.
MOAI offers a small variety of boards. In total, they have 5 boards available for purchase, all named after their dimensions. Since all boards look similar, I summarized each board in only a few words.

Not all MOAI boards are for sale on Amazon, therefore you’ll find links to other retailers. I try to check broken / updated links as often as I can, but since I’m running this site on my own and in multiple languages, it’s almost impossible to keep this updated.

The MOAI 10’6″ is one of my favorite SUP boards for 2020. This is a great all-round board that is suitable for both older and younger people. Do you use a board recreationally, with multiple people or to relax? Then this is definitely a board to consider this year.
The MOAI 10’6″ Womens Series is made especially for the ladies. A beautiful pink color and with every purchase a donation goes to Pink Ribbon.
The MOAI 11′ is also very popular. The sleek design, in combination with the all-round shape, makes it a perfect SUP.
The MOAI 12’4″ is designed for multi-person use. For example, there is room to install a kayak seat up to twice and it has multiple handles to carry the SUP to the water. You also get two paddles instead of one when you buy this sup.
The MOAI 12’6″ is also a beautiful board of the Dutch brand. This lovely touring board is especially suitable if you want more adventure on the water, or if you want to cover longer distances.
You can find this board in the list of best touring sup boards for 2020, because the good price-quality ratio is something that really stands out with this board.
The MOAI Race 14’0″ is the designated racing board of the MOAI collection, to reach higher speeds and travel the water a lot quicker than you have before.
Very stable and rigid, with also makes it suitable for longer tours.
The MOAI 18′ is the new giant paddle board developed by this popular brand, suitable for up to 8 people. The total carrying capacity is 650 kg.
Are you looking to go out paddling with a lot of people at the same time? Then this board is surely an amazing option for you!
Now it is also possible to go wingsurfing on your Stand Up Paddle Board or surfboard! You use one of these wings, which are handy inflatable kites.
The force of the wind will pull you forward across the water, so you do not have to paddle anymore. So it is getting closer to kitesurfing, but in a more basic way which makes it a lot easier to learn!
Do you want to try something new, or are you just bored with paddling around all the time? Try out one of these wing sets for a completely new experience!
Another trend that is getting more and more popular is foiling. With these handy foil boards you can get out on the water and reach higher speeds and bigger heights.
The more professional you are, the smaller the board you can use to carve the waves. Beginners to foiling are advised to stick to the bigger sizes.
Just note that these boards are sold without the foil itself, so you need to purchase a foil wing separately.
In 2021 MOAI has started to also produce inflatable kayaks and canoes in different sizes. These are made with the distinctive MOAI design and are available for 1 or 2 persons to go out on the water together.
Suitable for calm lakes but also for rough water. They have a movable seat and footrest for ultimate comfort.
All kayak packages will be delivered with a kayak paddle(s), seat(s), pump and bag so you can get started right away!
