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 🙏🏻

MOAI 9’5″

  • Very agile on the water because of the smaller size
  • Maximum capacity of 110 kg, this may be too little

MOAI 10’6″

8 Reviews | Read all reviews

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

MOAI 11′

The MOAI 11′ is also very popular. The sleek design, in combination with the all-round shape, makes it a perfect SUP.

  • More sporty than the MOAI 10’6″
  • Gorgeous unisex design
  • More expensive than the 10’6″ which makes it less interesting for beginners

MOAI 12’4″

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)
  • Not suitable for speed or touring

MOAI 12’6″

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.

  • Is wonderful on the water compared to a 4.7″ thick board
