Top 10 Diving Boards
for October 2022

Diving boards are a classic childhood activity, and today, they're making a comeback. Both kids and adults can have a blast jumping off one of these fun water features, whether it's a picnic, water park, or backyard pool.

Diving boards, sometimes called diving platforms, are long, flat pieces of wood or metal with raised edges, usually about 15 to 30 inches high, that sit at the edge of a pool. They're used for diving, but are also popular for aqua aerobics, jumping rope, or playing water games.

Diving boards come in different sizes, shapes, and styles, so it's important to choose one that best fits your outdoor space. Our diving board evaluations include testing the boards for safety, durability, and ease of use. We also evaluate how high the board is, and how well each board holds up to repeated use.

Our top picks for the best diving boards of 2022 are based on our testing, consumer reviews, and expert ratings. These are the best diving boards you can buy in 2022:
