The touring board shape will will provide you with higher efficiency and performance than the all-round shape. In other words, you can track straighter (more strokes before changing sides) and quicker (fewer strokes to achieve a smooth glide) across the water. Touring boards are best for adventure touring, speed, SUP racing and covering long distances.
The touring board shape also has some key qualities for family and adventure paddle boarding fun. Its longer, so much more room for equipment and for your kids to sit at the front of the board, generally the boards have bungees on the front and back, which are great for storing your picnic, camping gear, water and spare clothes, paddle etc.
