Top 7 Reasons Why You Should Buy an Inflatable Paddle Board

Over the past few years, the popularity of stand up paddle boarding has exploded and it is easy to see why. Not only is paddle boarding easily accessible for the masses and suited for all fitness levels and age groups, it is also a fun and great way to stay healthy and in shape. With this popularity, the stand up paddle board market can be a little overwhelming with various types, shapes and materials. This is why we have simplified it and outlined our top reasons why you should buy an inflatable paddle board, complete with a buying guide.

Lightweight

Inflatable stand up paddle boards are much lighter than their solid counterparts, making them much easier to carry and move around. Take for example the Red Paddle Co Ride 10’6″, it is just 20lbs. This makes them ideal for paddling rivers and canals, especially if you need to pass through locks. The lighter weight also makes them more suitable for more off the beaten path locations where you would need to carry your board or lift it in and out of the water frequently. If you’re walking a longer distance, you can pack it down into it’s backpack and pump it when you reach your destination! Depending on the size and materials, inflatable paddle boards weigh between 15 to 25 pounds, whereas a standard solid paddle board weighs 30lbs upwards.
