Inflatable SUP

Thanks to my wonderful fiancé, I’m spending more and more time on the water! The calming and relaxing effects are pretty amazing as well as the vitamin D and sunshine!

I love my big surfboard (8’4″) and just floating on the water. An idea occurred to me to get a big raft. But that’s cumbersome. So, then I thought about practicing my turns and paddling strength in the pool. But what about a lounging island or floating flamingo? Boom: the inflatable SUP seemed like a perfect blend of relaxing raft and ocean cruising in an easy to handle, fold-up, easy-storage, and hide-away apparatus. 

But which one do I get?

The decision was tough, but I love comparative graphs the Outdoor Gear Lab provides. And with an honest breakdown like that and comparing the different inflatable SUP brands… My decision was made. Plus, I love supporting local!
