Over the past 15 years our family has gone camping and scuba diving on Catalina Island, CA. We typically rented kayaks to go scuba diving as we explored around the island. With each passing year we took notice that more people were using stand up paddle boards. It intrigued us as it looked like great fun, a unique approach to a full body workout and a better way to venture out that you normally wouldn’t be able to on land. From that point forward, we rented a SUP wherever we went. Our family enjoyed it immensely and we knew we had to purchase one of our own. As we began our search for a SUP we noted our preferences, however, there wasn’t one board that fulfilled our wants. We were searching for a portable high-quality light weight board that was also stylish. After thorough research and exhausting our options, we asked ourselves “Why don’t we make a durable light weight portable board?” What started out as conception of our own ended up being what others out there wanted as well. That is how NIXY’s inflatable SUP was born and the spread of joyful paddle boarding we experience today.
