iSUP Construction Choosing the right board for you Free Shipping


We’ve been using and selling inflatable boards since 2008 and have always believed riding an inflatable shouldn’t mean compromise on performance, design or quality. Inflatables are now stiffer and more durable than ever before and have been designed so you can paddle anywhere.

We carry over 80 boards in stock from:-  Red Paddle, Starboard, RRD, Tiki, Mistral, Naish and STX, so we don't try to sell you a board from a limited stock range.

 

 


The advantages of Inflation:

Owning an inflatable SUP board gives so many advantages over a hard shell board especially now that you no longer have to compromise on quality, performance or design. Inflatables are now super stiff due the their construction technology.

The drop-stitch rate along with the layering of the skin and seam build are all checked. The boards that we supply all have dual layers as a minimum and some have quad layering

Most of the boards also have extra stringers laminated into the construction as well as extra skin layering and torsion bands which all add up to a formidable stiffness and longevity.

We test all of the brands we sell to 150% of their stated working pressure

 


Durability:

If you choose the right iSUP, you will have one of the most durable boards in the world, We have ben using iSUP boards in our SUP school and hire centre since 2008, they require the minimum of maintenance and storage

Performance:

All the boards we supply use proven technology which allows them to be designed without compromise to perform on a level with hard boards but with the convenience of an inflatable.

Taking your board with you wherever you go is what inflatables are all about, but that wouldn’t mean much if they compromised on performance.

 

 

 

 


Quality:

All the inflatable we supply have been tested by us and our paddlers, we don’t stock or supply any low quality products and all of our boards will give you an authentic sup experience that is not attainable with any of the low quality alternatives. All of our boards are available for test rides.
