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.
If you want a SUP board, but don't have the space to store a board that is over 10ft long, or a roof rack to transport the board, inflatables are fantastic options to look at. Inflatables offer super stiff construction when fully inflated giving great glide, tracking, and stability. However, for storage or transport they deflate into a size that can easily be transported in the trunk of a car, or stored in a closet or other small storage space making them perfect for anyone living in an apartment or condominium. Inflatables can be deflated for transport or storage after each use - but, can also be left inflated so the board is ready to use. Inflatables give the best of all worlds - easy transport and storage if you want, but also rigid board performance and convenience if left inflated. Great for airline travel as well as they can be checked as baggage, whereas most airlines will not transport rigid, or non-inflatable boards.
We proudly offer Cruiser SUP Inflatable's in the Dura-Air or Lite-Air construction, as well as NRS and Red Paddle Co. Our staff of dedicated paddle boarders love inflatable's and can give sizing and performance advice on all the models we offer. Like non-inflatable boards there are many sizing options, but also many different performance level boards ranging from surf specific, to race/touring, to flat water cruisers. All our inflatable packages include board, fins, pump, pressure gauge, 3 piece adjustable travel paddle, and on many options, a travel back pack as well. Cruiser SUP inflatables are also available in our super popular 2 board packages as well.
Designed originally for white water paddling - inflatables are super durable, while still remaining very light. Often the assumption when the word inflatable is mentioned is something made like an air mattress or pool toy. However, inflatable's are made of ultra rigid and durable drop stitched PVC material that is both durable, and light weight. Durable, high performance, light weight, and portable are rarely used to describe one board - but in the case of inflatable's, all of the above applies! Don't hate - inflate!
