ROC Paddle Boards

ROC Paddle Boards is a popular inflatable Stand Up Paddle board brand from the United States. They are mostly known for offering complete packages of beginner Stand Up Paddle boards for a very competitive price. Their assortment is not that big yet, they only offer a 10′ explorer board and a 10′ scout board, both available in a variety of colors.

I featured their 10′ ROC Paddle Board as my number 1 board in Best Cheap Paddle Boards of 2020 (under $350). At the moment every single board of ROC has a price of $400, which is very good for a complete package. For beginners this is the best cheap board to purchase if you’re still trying to figure out if you like paddle boarding. It’s great value for money.

In the meantime I have seen the price of ROC paddle boards go up as far as $699 in the off season, so it seems worth the while to always wait until the SUP season has actually begun before you purchase this paddle board. Perhaps because of low stocks the price of this board gets raised massively when not in the season.

All in all they offer amazing quality for an often low price, which results in over 4.600 review on Amazon with an average of 4.8 out of 5 stars! So many satisfied customers couldn’t be wrong, wouldn’t you think so?

The ROC Paddle Boards 2021 collection contains:


ROC Explorer 10′

The ROC Explorer 10′ is a great cheap paddle board that is suitable for every beginner in Stand Up Paddle Boarding. A great design and good performance at a decent price (in off season) and a complete package. Recommended for all SUP beginners.

The ROC Scout 10′ is rounder, wider and offers the option to attach a paddle board seat to the board. This makes the board for suitable for things like Yoga, fishing and touring. (Personally I’d prefer a longer board for this). A great and cheap board for multiple activities.
