Default SUP for beginners

Up north my family has the Costco standup board and my wife has really gotten into it. What would be a good setup for down in Florida? Looking for something a little better than the Costco ones however I don't needs the super boards for yoga and fishing and everything.

I would recommend used until you define your skill and use.
Where are you located? SWFL is a big area. I will do a search for you if you want. You can PM or email me if you prefer.

Couldn't find anything of interest in Ft. Myers but this Naish in Tampa CL would be worth checking into. Though it is on the large size.

Most of the China made boards are from the same factory. Some companies have their boards made to a higher standard, Look at Hobie, Surf tech and NSP.

I bought a couple of high end lightweight touring SUPs. In retrospect, I'd be happy with the cheap costco ones. The ones I have are fast and light, but fragile and need to be stored in the shade. They track nicely in a breeze/chop, but I think the cheap ones would fit my needs better. My wife is reluctant to use them because they are so fragile.
