Pros Inexpensive, paddle includedFast, stylish, stableGood glide performance, very stable, reasonably pricedGreat value, glides well, super stableStable, great for beginners, more wear-resistant than other SUPs
Cons Not stable, glides poorly, slowPricey, felt a little more fragile than other modelscumbersome to turn, not the most durableHeavy, not the most maneuverableHeavy, harder to move
Bottom Line While inexpensive, we found the CBC SUP to be exceptionally flawed, performing poorly on the waterSleek, stylish, speedy, and stable -- the Surftech Catalyst is one of our all-time favorite SUPsThis fantastic all-around board took home the top score and the Editors' Choice awardThis great board is a fantastic value, matching the performance of boards that are hundreds are dollars more expensiveSturdy, stable, and solidly maneuverable, this is out top pick for families or new paddlers
