Top 5 Star Review

"We purchased 2 of these and I must say they are amazing. inflated to 15 psi this board is rock solid. Tracks very well, handles waves and so easy to inflate, deflate and pack up. We love these boards. Great product and I highly recommend them. Great for me 250lbs and tall, very stable and awesome for the rest of the family. They inflate very quickly with the hand pumps. Also go the portable powered pump. Found I had to finish up the board to get to 15 psi. Highly recommend you get one of these."

The V-Max 12'6" series are a staff favorite at Paddleboard Direct. Based on the wildly popular non-inflatable V-Max 12'6", the V-Max Lite-Air 12'6" is the lightest of the options. Ideal for riders up to 230lbs, the V-Max 12'6" series tracks like it is on rails, and our staff has yet to determine if there is any upper end to its speed.

The V-Max Lite-Air 12'6" is built from the highest quality PVC Drop Stitch materials, and extra stiffness is added through a deck stringer. Includes with fin, pump, Premium deck pad, and 3 Piece Adjustable Alloy Paddle.

Ideal for riders looking for the performance of a touring board, without the hassles of transport of a non-inflatable.

Cruiser SUP Dura-Air Technology
- Heavy Duty, Full Double Layer Technology from world's most renowned manufacturer
- Unmatched 15 to 20psi air pressure / stiffness due to quality materials and manufacturing process
- Most modern inflatable board manufacturer
- Removable fin with zero tools needed
- Premium quality crocodile texture deck pad, carry handles, and deck bungee tie downs
- Cruiser SUP AIR 20psi pump - Industry leading Bravo pump for top quality

The Dura-Air construction features V-Drop Stitch Material, which is a durable PVC. On the inside, thousands of nylon threads connect the deck with the bottom of the board to keep it in a functional and performing shape. Utilizing the best drop-stitch material available on the market, this newly developed technology provides a perfect ratio of durability, weight and price.

Built using specially produced, high density drop stitch that makes for a stronger and stiffer core. Take a look on the outside of a Cruiser SUP Dura-Air board and you will see thousands of dimples spread from nose to tail and rail to rail. Each dimple represents an internal thread. We do not use Linear drop stitch which is a mass produced, cheap material that cannot hold high pressure. Linear boards can be identified by the straight lines of dimples on the board.

All our boards are made with the latest PVC Drop stitch fabrics. The fabric filaments between the two PVC layers surfaces are assembled to the PVC itself, by new Cruiser SUP Dura-Air Technology. Offering the best bond between the fabric filaments and the PVC surface layers; this secures a high stress durability over a long time frame. These special new Cruiser SUP Dura-Air fabrics are the only fabrics that have been tested to be able to withstand up to 43 psi inflation pressure and can be normally used with an average of 15 to 20 psi inflating pressure. Higher pressure means stiffer boards, that can hold their original shape at all times, thus preventing shape deformation, and thereby delivering better performance in all conditions.

In addition to these special drop stitch fabrics, the boards are heat laminated with an extra Heavy Duty full layer PVC woven marine grade fabric on the deck and bottom, so that the Dura-AIr boards are both strong and durable, prevent the shape "twisting" and maintain the rocker line, as originally designed.

Awesome inflatable board!
Reviewer: Jason from Miami, Florida  
Just received my Cruiser SUP AIR V-Max and Koa inflatable boards. The difference between the Cruiser V-Max 12'6" AIR and my previous inflatable board is huge. My new Cruiser SUP inflatable boards are very fast, excellent tracking and much more stable. Can't believe how light and well built they are!

I used to have a bad impression of inflatable boards based on my previous inflatable board. You can't even compare the stiffness of the two brands - the Cruiser inflatable is much closer to the stiffness of an epoxy board.

I'm very happy with my new V-Max AIR. I hope to have great fun using it in different places and conditions with all my family!

First-time paddleboard owner
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Kearney, NE  
This is the first paddleboard I've owned, and it's definitely the perfect board for me. The portability of having an inflatable SUP and impressive stability for an inflatable board has made this a purchase I definitely don't regret. I honestly have my board all bagged up and ready to to travel at a moments notice, whether I'm going out by myself or with a group.  I've been happy with the board's performance on each and every one of the paddleboarding trips I've been on. The convenience factor of having an inflatable is a huge advantage; it takes less than 10 minutes to get the board ready and less than 5 minutes to put it away. Highly recommend this board!

10 minutes and you're on the water
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Florida  
Excellent service from Paddle Board Direct with order to use in 4 days. These are the first iSUPs we've used and we are impressed with the firmness and tracking. Very easy to inflate with the provided pump.  We look forward to many hours of fun.  I imagine that we'll upgrade the paddles at some point but the included paddles do the trick to start with.

First time SUP owners with a small car!
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I bought two of these to have in Florida when we go to the beach. The kids have so much fun, they are easy to transport and inflate. I have had many comments on how sturdy they are once inflated and that you can't tell. I would recommend to anyone who doesn't have a way of getting a large board to the water. They are less awkward and anyone can manage them. We have had hours of fun.
