Airhead SUP Napali

by Airhead SUP

AIRHEAD'S inflatable SUP is the best quality your money can buy. The extra rugged drop stitch construction allows a much higher air pressure than other inflatable technologies. When you're out on the water, Napali is rigid and will perform like a fiberglass board. Feel like sitting down? Install the seat in seconds and paddle kayak style. For convenience and portability, a backpack with mesh panels is included for stowing and carrying the SUP and all accessories. If you are searching for inflatable paddle boards, the Na Pali may be the perfect match for you! AIRHEAD Adjustable SUP Paddle sold separately.

Great board for a beginning paddler. Pros Very stable, easy to carry and portable. Amazingly rigid when inflated. First pump was defective and could not get board up to pressure, but no problems after pump was replaced. Cons The middle rudder is not centered straight causing board to veer to one direction when paddling, so I paddle without it. Usage For fun.

Bought for a first time SUP user. Find it very stable, easy to use, and fun. Used occasionally on flat river, but usually on a lake. Due to inflatable, I would not want to use this on ocean or bay if any risk of puncture. The kids also love it, but they paddle less and horseplay more. Pros Light, easy to handle and set up. Cons Cannot leave in sun, even briefly. Usage Play, exercise - all on flat water.

This inflatable board is very solid on the water- great once you get those last few pumps. Love that it comes with a seat !!! Pros size & seat-fast learning curve for a 50 plus year old- quite stable! Cons a little heavy Usage core workout & relaxing with friends

This board is a good, inexpensive starting board. It is stable and easy to pack to new paddling sites. It inflates quickly, even if the pump is on the cheap side (one part of the gauge connector snapped early on, though it still worked until the other part also snapped. The pump still works, but had to order a new one. Pros - stable - easy to learn - low price point Cons - not super fast - wouldn't trust in surf as fairly thin inflatable - bendy if it starts to run low - must be careful to not leave inflated in sun (even more than hard boards, as the air expansion could increase pressure) Usage Exercise, kid-play - flat water touring and river touring.

I am a beginner stand up guy but gave this one a shot and was surprised at the stability of the board. I did fall off a few times trying to get a feel for how far you can lean. Pretty fun time. Cool looking on the water too. Pros Stability and graphics. Cons It seemed a bit slow, but I don't have a lot to compare it to. Usage excercise

Outstanding sup. I use it for fishing, surfing and general backwater crusing for exercise. It is stable and feels very solid for an inflatable board. Holds air pressure and after several months of use no leaks yet. Pros Great ride, stable in choppy waters. Cons The handle, wish it had a notch. Would make it easier to carry. Usage Excercise, Surf, Cruising, and Fishing

I love the convience of these paddleboards! We are able to set up & put away within 10 minutes. Love the fact that they don't take up much room in the garage AND with the little seat in the front my husband & I can take our kiddos for a ride around the reservoir all together. I had people with hard boards ask me about the SUPS, they are great!! So happy we purchased these this summer!! Pros Ease of set up, does not take much room to store, you could store them in a apartment. Cons Hand pump, but once we purchased the airhead pump that hooks to the car battery you can hook it up and set up your chairs on the beach. Usage Relaxing...it is so peaceful to glide along the water. Life can stand still for a while

First time paddler. :D Pros Steady, easy to get up on, loved it for turning easy glide. Totally biffed it at the end only cause my foot came off the grip. All in all a great ride. Cons Usage Touring around a lake

Great on flat water! Takes some getting use to with any ripples or chop. Love the eyelets to bungee jackets or cooler to it. I like the versatility of sitting with seat, or standing! So no matter what the water conditions are...you have a way to be on this board and out enjoying the water!! Also, once you get use to the bounce on choppy water, you improve all your balance muscles! Pros Eyelets to bungee a cooler or extra jacket. The kayak seat. Soft on legs and feet to be out for long time. Light to carry. Improves balance! Cons Bouncy on choppy water. Usage Lake Erie, open water with chop and waves. Touring in lagoons - flat water.

I live in West Virginia. Not a lot of these here. I've got several comments on the board the last couple weeks while out on lakes in this area. I use to surf about 20 years ago so it wasn't that hard for me to take this back up again. Pros Seems to be a great board. Like that I can put it inside of my jeep and not have to worry about having a roof rack. Cons Haven't really had any cons. Usage Exercise, touring

Bought from an online retailer , had no problems with directions or packing list, once inflated board is very sturdy and feels nice and stable in water adding the seat for beginners to get their "legs" was a breeze. I really enjoyed learning paddling and balance gradually. Remove the seat and SUP is is step two. Beginners will find this board easy to conquer Pros Has kayak style capabilities Cons Inflating was a nightmare . Very difficult to attain proper pressure with pump supplied . Once inflated, it was very difficult to deflate and repackage, it seemed like origami to get back to pack able dimensions . This board is truly not a "fix" if you have storage issues and are thinking of using for recreational paddling and just inflating at whim or every other weekend type plans. It is very difficult to inflate /deflate/pack

Manufacturer's Response:
Sorry to hear you’ve had problems re-packaging the Na Pali into “packable” dimensions. We recommend following these deflation steps below to efficiently deflate the Airhead SUP Na Pali. After fully deflated, simply roll the SUP from the front “nose end” towards the valve on the opposite tail end. Keep the included board strap nearby. Fasten it around the board and tighten to keep the board’s now compact cylindrical shape. Lastly place in the included back pack.

DEFLATION SEQUENCE

1. Clear any water or fragments out from around the valve area before removing valve cover.2. Press down on the valve pin to let air out of the SUP. Once air starts to release you can press the valve pin in all the way and turn it clockwise to the open locked position. Usage Recreational , small lake
