Inflatable SUP

#1

Post by ADVStrom14 » Sat Sep 10, 2016 8:14 pm

Does anyone use an inflatable SUP or kayak? Because I motorcycle camp most of the time that I go, a rigid boat is not an option. I want an inflatable one so bad but finding one for less than an arm and a leg is hard. I am looking at this one -

But wanted to see if anyone else used an inflatable and what you were using. Thanks!

I use an inflatable SUP. I've got two of them. Bought both of them off eBay, one for $200 and the other for $300. The $300 is better quality but came with leaks that I had to patch.

It's great for cruising around on a lake or on a tame river. I haven't taken them on any fast rivers. Fishing is a lot of fun on them as well. I'm also planning to run some of the blue trails that are normally run by kayaks and canoes. Let me know if you need more info.

Excellent. Do you happen to know or can you find out what the brand/type of the $300 one you purchased? I really just want to go on the lake with them or have the option of the river but I am not really interested in rapids or anything choppy like that. I just want to chill. :)

Yep, one if them is an Ancheer 10ft max weight 350lbs. The other is a Vilano 10ft. The Vilano has a thicker construction but there's nothing wrong with the other one, works fine.

My daughter and I out for a morning paddle. I don't live on the lake, so being inflatable makes transport easy.

Sarge, I've got an inflatable kayak, a Sevylor. If you get one make sure they offer a skeg for it. Without one they don't track well and can get really frustrating on a windy day. I'm a DIYer also and was going to make one for mine then found that Coleman sold one for $15. Done. Good luck, the kayak was fun but now that we've spent time on the SUPs it doesn't get as much use.

My wife owns. Paddle board yoga business so i have a fair amount of knowledge on the subject. While you will not get a better track and ride than a solid board, inflatables are the way to go for transport and durability.

We only use red paddle brand. They are light, durable, you can drive over them with car and not have an issue, have great pumps, comes in a wheeled and shoulder trap bag, and are not crazy expensive.

Wind is not an inflatable supers friend. Beware of win, you may go backwards.

I've heard the Red boards are great. My first board was an old wind surfer I bought for $20 and bondo'd all the tiny holes then resurfaced. It's big, 14' and heavy 40lb, but it's what I started with and it still holds a certain significance for me. It's thinner than the iSUPs so took more balance. It's my hobo paddle board.
