Travelling the world with your paddle board has never been easier. Inflatable paddle boards by industry leaders Red Paddle Co and other notable brands including Naish Paddle Boards and Starboard SUPs, are resetting everyone’s perception and what can be achieved with a portable stand up paddle board.
Inflatable paddle boards can be rolled up, folded up and packed into a backpack or wheeled bag. This makes them extremely convenient to travel with. These boards can fit in the trunk of a small car, check in on aeroplanes and carried on your back if you choose to hike into a remote lake, river, beach, or lagoon.
On top of that, the 3 piece or breakdown paddles available also fit in the board bag along with all accessories for another great session on the water.
But what about performance you ask? Well, inflatables have come forward in leaps and bounds over the last 5 years mostly thanks to the afore mentioned brands leading the industry with technological and design advances. Inflatable SUP boards can pump up to 25PSI, which is more than enough to hold shape and be competitive with a true hard board on the race scene. However 15-20PSI is suitable for most paddlers and they get to enjoy the water but have the pleasure of a convenient package for transportation and storage.
