I spent a lot of money...

I spent a lot of money last year on renting a paddle board, and was looking for a paddle board for myself. I have an SUV, but wanted a more portable option, and was excited to see all the inflatable SUPs available. This is a perfect "first" board for me. Pros Affordable option for people tired of renting SUPs, portable and easy to store/ load into car, light weight, came with more standard equipment the other SUPs (paddle and cargo straps). Very sturdy- when out paddling, people are surprised to learn that it is inflatable. I haven't had any issues with deflating- very durable. Cons Seems more unstable than a non inflatable SUP; the last 5 psi takes some work to inflate- which I'm sure is true for all inflatables. Usage I use it at least weekly for exercise, touring, and just getting out on the water. It's like having a boat without the fees and expense.

Great beginner board at a good price! It has three good fins, and flows well in water. The fastening points also work well, though can be a bit difficult for larger bags etc. Nonetheless, I am so happy that I bought this board! Pros Stable, good fastening points/d-rings for touring, cheap. Cons Hard to inflate. Usage Touring, exercise, yoga, travel on water.

Easy maneuverability and so much fun! Had 3 friends out in the middle of the lake on it & had a ball! It's also a great core workout! Raced friends around the Lake & got a great workout. We also are amateur yogis-what fun!!! Pros easy balance & easy to maneuver Cons nothing Usage use for exercise, yoga, & fun times

This is an entry level inflatable board, which comes complete with paddle and pump. It's 9 foot 11 inches long and about 30 inches wide, so probably best suited to smaller paddlers ie under 5' 10" Pros It's amazingly good value for money when you compare it to the cost of other paddle boards and will get you on the water for a few hundred quid. A good fun all round board. I've paddled it in flat water and managed to catch waves on it. Cons The carry handle is in the wrong place so the tail drags along the floor when you carry it. Had to change the paddle for something bigger. Side fins are tricky to get in and out. Usage flat water recreational paddling and a bit of surfing
