The inflatable Raven is my "go to" board for lakes and river running. Great speed, rigid, and never worry about dings. The bungee straps on the front of the board also allows for gear storage for a camera case, lunch, or even overnight gear to camp on your favorite island.
Hands down the most versatile board in my quiver.
You may need to buy a pump. The included pump doesn't seem to last long.
Touring, downriver, river racing, overnight camping.

This board is a must-have. The versatility has been amazing for me in my water exploits. From Coastal missions in Baja, using it to downriver race at the GoPro games, flatwater cruising and my brother caught his first wave ever on this board at Santa Rosalalita in Baja.
Stable, looks great, very versatile.
Truthfully have nothing bad to say about this board.

This is the durable and versatile Inflatable SUP's on the market. I take one with me everywhere. Either on Lake Tahoe, Antarctic Peninsula, Amazon or Svalbard. All you need to do is Show up and Blow Up!
Super great touring inflatable that is incredibly stable and tours like a fiberglass SUP
Expeditions to Antarctica, Brazilian Amazon and Ski trips to Iceland, Greenland and Svalbard. I use it on lakes around Lake Tahoe, Florda Keys, Bahamas and Chesapeake Bsy

Durable and extremely versatile inflatable touring board. I have personally had the last 3 versions of the Raven inflatable. It just keeps getting better. Works great for traveling with your board in the trunk of the car or for air travel.
I have paddled this board on lakes, camping trips, ocean and coastal cruises, downwind, and downriver. As I stated before, it is very versatile.
- Great looks and northwest first nations inspired graphics
- Durable, never worry about dings or scratches.
- Excellent glide. At 30" wide, it is stable but does not sacrifice glide. You can paddle 10-20 miles on this board no problem.
- camping trips
- recreational racing

Having had the last few versions of this board I would have to say this one feels even better than the last. Ultra stiff and responsive with great glide. I have taken the Boardworks IRaven from the north shore of Superior. to southern Panama and it takes a lot of travel abuse unscathed.
ease of use
just plan fun yo!
ocean/lake touring and fitness board. Also just taking to the lake in the summer to play around on.

This board tours well, but I found myself using the SHUBU Raven for running rivers more than anything else. I like the speed and durability, and I used it for a lot of Class II & III whitewater. It's light and quick and can take a beating.
Durable, light, fast, and compact
Touring and river-running
