Inflatable Paddle Boards
What is so good about inflatable stand up paddle boards?
Inflatable stand up paddle boards are a great choice for beginners and experts alike. Here’s why:
When you’re on vacation, the last thing that you want to worry about is finding a place for your inflatable SUP. The rest of your luggage takes up enough space and what more are we supposed to do when our board still needs some air before it shrinks back down? That problem has been solved with these new boards! They can be deflated and folded into smaller sizes so they don’t take up any precious room in the suitcase or house afterwards.
Softer Surface for Safety
When you inevitably fall off your paddle board, the softer surface of an inflatable stand-up paddleboard will be more forgiving. Make sure to always wear a life jacket when boarding on any type! A soft and safe surface is one thing but make sure that you are also protected by some good safety gear like a helmet or flotation device in case things go wrong.
Inflatable stand-up paddle boards have less structural integrity compared to hard shell ones. But in the case of bumping onto rocks, corals, and other hard surfaces they are much more durable than a traditional board – which scratches and cracks quickly from impacts with those objects.
Lighter for Travel
Lightweight paddle boards might not be a well-known benefit, but they’re one of our favorites. They weigh less and can easily fit into your luggage so you don’t have to leave them behind when traveling on an airplane abroad or at home. If weight is something that bothers you too much, consider buying some inflatable SUPs with removable fins – then take off those pesky fin attachments as soon as it’s time for travel!
Different Types of Inflatable Paddle Boards
Surf Type Paddle Boards
Surf-type inflatable paddle boards are perfect for navigating rough bodies of water and rapids that have a lot of waves. They’re typically less stable than other models, but they’ll get you to your destination faster because the board is more aerodynamic in shape. Surf inflatables are also great at handling choppy conditions like when there’s wind or currents coming from different angles which can throw off traditional style SUPs with their wider tails
All-round Paddle Boards
If you are a beginner and want to explore water sports, then an all-round stand up paddle board is the perfect choice for you. Not only can they handle various conditions with ease but their versatility means that in addition to exploring different watersports options, beginners will be able to focus on mastering one particular sport without having too many other distractions.
All-around SUPs have thicker bodies which make them more stable than surf specific models while also being impressive when it comes time for stability since these boards accommodate larger riders better due to how wide these boards are across from tail tip of nose as well as wider width at deck height. An all-round paddle board in the perfect inflatable SUP board for beginners.
Flat-water Paddle Boards
Flat-water models are specifically designed to navigate calm bodies of water with zero or minimal surf. This board is longer and thinner than All-round boards, which makes it more maneuverable in the shallows. The flat-water model has a narrower tip for added agility when gliding through the surface of the water – perfect on windless days! These boards can also be wider to give you greater stability so beginners will have no trouble getting up on their feet at all (no pun intended)! Race models feature even less width because they’re meant for high speeds down short courses where efficiency matters most
Are Inflatable Paddle Boards Good For Beginners?
The inflatable SUP is the first choice for beginners due to its durability and safety that it provides. It can take a beating from bumping into hard surfaces without any worry of breaking, which makes navigating shallow waters with pebbles or rocks easy! This board also gives more forgiveness when you fall off since your body won’t be bumped onto sharp objects like regular boards would
Inflatable SUPs are durable (especially in water) because they offer some protection against falls. They’re perfect for beginners who might not have mastered how to balance yet but still want something affordable that’s safe.
The portability of inflatable stand-up paddle boards is a great addition that makes them an excellent choice for beginners. Because you can just deflate and carry around your SUP, it becomes easy to try out different spots without having to worry about launching or carrying the board with every trip which in turn means you’ll be able to find one spot where you love being on the water!
