iSUP’s are getting more n more popular. They’re really smart for transport!

There are so many solid Inflatable SUP boards out there now, and the prices are almost lower than many hard boards.

iSUPs are getting every bit as sophisticated as traditional boards are now. I agree, if you’re trying to win races you’re not going to do so with an inflatable but for pretty much everyone else, it’s hard not to like the idea of an iSUP due to their affordability, transportability, and durability. Personally, I like the ISLE iSUP but Tower does a nice one as well.

I agree, Haley. Inflatables just keep getting better and better, and for the overwhelming majority of people, they are a far better choice.

“Stand Up Paddle & Longboard” thank you so much, you hit the nail on the head for me. I surf SUP and am only investigating iSUP to get to an out of the way Indo island that takes 3 flights to get to. But if the iSUP don’t perform in the surf there’s no point.

There are some great Inflatable boards out there, but unfortunately I haven’t found a brand that will survive in Darwin’s tropical climate for anytime even close to half the life of a hard board. I know I’m missing out on sales, but I want my customers to come back . So far we’ve tried 5 major brands and one minor one. We continue to hope someone will solve the glue problem and offer a board with a longer warranty, that we can sell with confidence.

I have used a wide range of inflatable paddle boards over the years, and I can certainly say that iSUP’s are just keep getting better and better. They’re really easy to transport and store which makes em a great choice for most people out there.

Thanks for your comment Alex. It will be interesting to see where iSUPs will go in years to come.

iSUP is the best option for me. I always had the trouble to carry the surfboard on the roof of my car. With the inflatable board I got a lot less stress with transport.

Isups are becoming the new go-to board. They are becoming tougher, with better material and manufacturing. Not only that but more stable with better designs. Add all this into the fact they are easy to get around you have a winner in my option. Isup all the way.
