The adventures really don’t ever have to stop with inflatable paddleboards. As iSUPS are inflatable, once deflated, they pack down small into their accompanying carry bag. This efficient pack down makes them easy to transport by car, public transport and even by plane, without the oversize baggage fees. The useful carry bag also makes those before limited access spots now accessible, giving the opportunity to explore further afield. Alternatively, if the location is just a short walk, you can inflate your board and carry it ready to go. As they are inflated, they are much lighter than hardboards making them easy and convenient to carry. Most also have a padded handle in the middle so you can carry in comfort. This also means for those locations where you have to frequently enter and exit the water, for example when passing through locks, you can pass through easily without the added hardboard weight.
Store Anywhere, Everywhere
Unlike solid paddleboards, iSUPS can be stored anywhere, everywhere! Once deflated, their neat pack down means you can store them in a closet, small lake house, on a small boat and even in your bedroom. If camping, it would even fit inside of your tent! In comparison, standard hardboards are around 10-12ft long, so if you don’t have a large garage or storage space, they can be tricky to store. In addition, hardboards are more fragile, so if finding the space isn’t a problem, you’ll also need it to be somewhere where it won’t get knocked or damaged.
