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
Inflating the SUP takes quite a long time (+/- 8 minutes at a steady pace)
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.
Great for reaching higher speeds
Not so agile due to its length
MOAI Big Board 18′
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!
Fun with a big group of friends or family
Big traction deck for even more stability
No paddles included
Not so agile due to its size
MOAI Wing Set
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!
Compact size for transport
Available in 3 sizes; 4M, 5M & 6M
Including; bag, pump, leash
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.
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!
