Inflatables SUPS? Here's my take...
By Kevin Kearney
I have to admit, as a fan of traditional boards, I was a little skeptical. But then I have a trailer for hauling and space to store all of our long boards. But for those of you who don't, or even when I myself want to take a quick short spin around the lake, the traditional boards have their cons. So, when BOGA debuted the Boga Air, we tried it and same when Rogue debuted the Skiff, and I was pleasantly surprised. Megan was able to do yoga on the boards they were so stable and it took me less than 5 minutes to manually pump the board! So here is what I thought...
EASY TO STORE
Shipping, storing and transporting traditional 10'-12' stand-up paddleboards can be challenging. Inflatable SUP boards, on the other hand, deflate and inflate on-demand and can be rolled up into a backpack bag that you can put in an overhead compartment on a plane. Suddenly, stand-up paddleboarding becomes mobile and your board becomes easy to store.
Store one on your boat. Bring one with you on your tropical vacation. Haul one up to your favorite hidden mountain lake. Inflatable SUP boards are extending the reach of stand up paddle boarding to every corner of the globe.
STRONG & STABLE
These aren't your typical inflatable water toys either. They are military grade, highly pressurized and distinctly shaped rubber stand-up paddleboards that are unbelievably rigid. In fact, we carry inflatable SUPS that can carry a 200+ pound person!
As with all boards, selecting the best construction is very important which is why we carry BOGA and Rogue boards. Both companies use a 6” Linear Drop Stitch core material for extreme stiffness in addition to a high tensile uni-directional center stringer. This construction makes our Air SUPS sturdy, stiff and responsive – more like a standard epoxy board.
QUICK TO FILL
For those of you who worry that pumping your ride my keep you from playing, I say have no fear! The boards blow up in under 5 minutes manually or you can purchase an Airhead Air pump, an electric pump that plugs into your car lighter, which pumps up your board in nearly half the time.
Interesting, right? I know. Drop me a line or give me a call and I can give you more information on these versatile boards and help you decide if they are right for you!
