Pros Inexpensive, durable, stableFast, stylish, stableGood glide performance, very stable, reasonably pricedGreat value, glides well, super stableStable, great for beginners, more wear-resistant than other SUPs
Cons Mediocre glide performance, extremely slow in choppy waterPricey, felt a little more fragile than other modelscumbersome to turn, not the most durableHeavy, not the most maneuverableHeavy, harder to move
Bottom Line While it's not the fastest or the most maneuverable, it's hard to beat the Sun Dolphin in terms of best bang for the buckSleek, 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
