Earning the lowest score of the entire group, the California Board Company stand up paddle board wasn't exactly our favorite. This low-cost foam board is the cheapest of the group, but for only $200 bucks more you can get an excellent fiberglass model. This board might be a good option for kids or other situation where the board will take a beating and isn't worth the extra investment. This board basically struggled in all of our on-water testing metrics, but it did do reasonably well out of the water, being relatively durable and easy to transport.
CBC has implemented a couple of changes for this SUP in 2018. See below for more details.
