You can enjoy the water this summer while respecting social distancing regulations. In fact, paddling can help get you out and clear some of those quarantine blues away. Here are our some picks from paddling partner Elevation Outdoors for the best gear for the season.

SUP

Hobie Adventure

This do-it-all inflatable SUP is a sure ticket to—wait for it—adventure, both close to home and farther afield. Sure and stable, it can cruise flatwater lakes to explore remote shores or just provide the kids with some fun on a beach—but it’s also responsive enough to surf small ocean waves. The 10-foot-six-inch board weighs in at 28 pounds and deflated it rolls into an easy-to-haul roller bag. It comes ready for action with a paddle, pump, and repair kit included. $1,159; hobie.com

Kokatat Hustle

Do the Hustle! Comfort is key in a PFD, and the open, easy fit on this Coast-Guard -approved life vest makes it easy to paddle hard on a SUP or kayak without cramping your style. Plus there’s plenty of room in the front pocket to hold those essentials you want nearby when you are on the water. $139; kokatat.com

Astral watershoesWater Shoes
Astral Loyak AC
The ideal shoe for SUP thanks to plenty of grip in its siped, non-marking Flex-Grip soles, the 6.7-ounce (in men’s size 9) Loyak AC also provides enough protection for clambering around on the shore. And your feet will thank you for the comfort of the breathable mesh upper. $110; astraldesigns.com

Canoe

Old Town Discovery 199 Solo Sportsman

This stealthy angler’s best friend cuts though the water without scaring up the fish. The hybrid design, which includes a plush seat and foot pegs, means it’s stable enough for casting and fighting fish and it turns and braces with ease. That makes it a fun boat just for a casual paddle, too. Rod holders and tackle storage seal the deal. $999; oldtowncanoe.johnsonoutdoors.com
