We regularly test the paddle boards that we sell on our webshop. This time it’s the Moai Touring 14” it’s turn. Moai is a brand with many popular Paddle Boards in its collection. Many of them are all-round boards, this board is not. The Moai touring 14 is mainly focused on touring, but racing is also no problem with this board. With this board you can easily cover long distances. In our reviews we pay attention to a number of important factors. This ranges from quality to manoeuvrability.
What is the Moai Touring 14” for Paddle Board?You can actually read it in the name, this board is meant for touring. You can also use it well as a race board. If you would like to make long trips on your board, this could be a very good choice for you. The quality of Moai is good, especially the price / quality ratio is super nice. This board is a very good middle class and certainly scores better than, for example, Aqua Marina. With the full package you immediately have everything you need to start your SUP adventure.

Test FactorsDuring testing, we pay attention to the same factors every time. We do this so that we can make the best reviews and compare the boards in the best way. These are the factors we test:
- How qualitative the SUP is
- How stiff the board is
- Whether the SUP is stable in the water
- And finally, we test how manoeuvrable the stand up paddle board is
