We at ISUPcenter always thoroughly test the boards in our webshop. This time it was the turn of the Moai 12’6 Touring Board. Moai has several boards in its collection. Almost all boards are all-round, except this board. This is a touring supboard, made purely to cover long distances with comfort. With every SUP review we test the boards on a number of important factors, from quality to manoeuvrability.
What is the Moai 12’6 Touring for Paddle Board?As the name suggests, this Paddle Board is really purely intended for touring. The intention of Moai is therefore to be able to cover the longest distances with as much comfort as possible with this board. At the bottom of this article you can read whether Moai also succeeded with the Moai 12’6 Touring Paddle Board. Moai has only just started operating in the SUP market, but if you didn’t know it, you wouldn’t notice it either. The Moai SUPS are of good quality and are therefore almost always available for a good price. You have a total of 5 different Moai boards, namely the 9’5″ allround, the 10’6″ allround, the 11″ allround, the 12’4″ allround family (2-person) and finally the 12’6″ touring . Every Moai board has the same design, only the properties and purposes differ. Would you like to know which Moai sup board suits you best? Then view our Moai advice guide.
