Earning the top score overall, the Kraken from Boardworks received the Editors' Choice award for best overall stand up paddle board. This great, all-around board is stable, maneuverable, easy to transport and glides well, making it a solid choice for both beginner and experienced paddlers. The Kraken is our top recommendation for most people, great for pushing your limits with a long trek or for a leisure day out on the water.
