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.

Found links that didn’t work? Please mention them in the comments. Thank 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 now, or are you just bored with paddling around all the time? Try out one of these wing sets for a completely new experience!

MOAI Foilboards

Another trend that is getting more and more popular is foiling. With these handy foilboards 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.

MOAI Kayaks and Canoes

In 2021 MOAI has started to also produce inflatable kayaks and canoes in different sizes. These are made with the distinctive MOAI design and available for 1 or 2 persons to go out on the water together.
