Cabarete as a SUP vacation destination

Cabarete is fast becoming a hot spot for al things watersport. In the early days, windsurfing was king, then kiteboarding came on board about 15 years ago. Then surfing had a resurgence a few years back. Now, with the rise in stand up paddle boarding, you can usually spot a paddler out in the bay, at kite beach or at Encuentro each morning.

While there are many local outfits that will rent you a board, why not bring your own! Inflatable stand up paddle boards by SUP brands such as Red Paddle Co, Naish and Starboard, are quickly making inroads into the surf breaks, rivers, lakes and waterways of your local area. Being able to simply roll up your paddle board, wheel it through the airport and check it onto the plan with no headaches of oversize luggage whatsoever, is a huge plus. There is nothing quite like riding your own gear in a new spot to ensure you have fun from the first to the last minute of your vacation.

Take a look over at Green Water Sports and check out what they have in stock for inflatable stand up paddle boards. The leaders in the industry right now are Red Paddle inflatable paddle boards, but Starboard inflatable SUPs and the Naish Air Series are hot on their heels with quality products as well.

Traveling with your inflatable paddle board

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.
