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.

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 🙏🏻
Very agile on the water because of the smaller size
Maximum capacity of 110 kg, this may be too little
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.
Is wonderful on the water compared to a 4.7″ thick board
Not so agile due to its length
Maximum capacity of 286 lbs / 130 kg, this can sometimes be too little
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.
Fun for families, couples or friends
