Thinking about buying a new SUP but feeling overwhelmed by all of the different choices? CKS Online did the hard work of comparing all of our different SUP models so that you don’t have to!
CKS Online currently carries inflatable SUPs (stand-up paddleboards) from three different brands: Hala Gear, based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, NRS, based in Moscow, Idaho, and STAR, an NRS house brand.
