There are some big points of difference to consider when choosing the right inflatable paddle board for you. Our inflatable paddle boards boast some really high end features that help set them apart from the competition. Our stand up paddle boards are made from military grade PVC and are made to withstand whatever paddle board adventure you are on. They come with a carbon fiber paddle vs aluminum, this is important because it weighs less and is much stronger. Another feature of our stand up paddle boards are the straps on the carrying case. We invested in hiking straps on the bag as well as a waist strap which makes this bag a great choice when your paddle board adventure starts and ends with a hike to the water. Our paddle boards also come with 3 fins vs 1 fin for better stability and maneuverability. Also included is a high capacity pump to make filling faster and easier. Our SUP's fill in half the time of many competitors stand up paddle boards. Once you get to your destination you will notice the size of our stand up paddle board is substantial, most are 32" wide and have a 350 pound weight limit. This is as much as 100lbs more than our competition in some cases. You will find our natural wood looking board to be a bit longer and narrower, this particular stand up paddle board is specifically designed for distance paddling or touring. Whatever adventure your stand up paddle board takes you on, we will back it with a full 1 year warranty!
