Inflatable Paddle Board

Since we boat and camp, I have started to think about purchasing an inflatable paddle board.

A quick internet search shows a ton of different models and manufactures.

Can anyone lend some knowledge to models they have purchased?

Not sure what your situation is, but we live by the beach, and we like to paddle board.
We have the standard fiberglass boards, they are really much better than inflatables...IMO.
We have a roof rack on our toad, so we can carry them when we travel with the RV.

But there is still the issue of theft while camping....

I suggest you try some inflatables before you buy to be sure you like them.
Too bad there is no two-piece fiberglass board....that would be good for RV folks.

Regards,

Dan

Since we have the boat too, I liked the idea of the inflatable boards since we can deflate and put in the cabin of the boat while under way.

I too am thinking about an inflatable SUP mainly for the convenience of storage, and because SUP is something I occasionally do, on flat, calm, water. I'd use a real surfboard at the beach so I honestly don't care "if a fiberglass board is better"....not if it's a PITA to carry and store it isn't. Isle has been advertising heavily....anybody use them?

We don't have an inflatable SUP, but do have an inflatable kayak, made by Sea Eagle. The floor in our kayak uses their drop stiched technology. The same method they make their SUPs from. It is very stiff. You can buy direct from Sea Eagle.

We have a pair of hard boards from Isle. Great people to work with, and excellent quality. When I was doing the research a few years ago, they had the best deals. Don't know where they stand, price wise, today, but we will be ordering a pair of inflatables from them soon.

The boards we have now are the "Versa" models. Short (9'8") and wide. Very stable and work great on the lake (rough or flat), and the low surf of the Gulf. Wife is wanting a pair to have for guests, so we're gonna snag a couple of inflatables.

Don't know if you are still looking or not, but I just got an email from this outfit and it was advertising inflatable SUP and kayaks. I don't really know who baot advantage is, but give it a look.
