Benefits of Inflatable Standup Paddleboards (SUP’s)

There has been an immense rise in the popularity of the standup paddle boarding for the past few years. One of the major reasons is that it is really fun and easy to learn; also it is entertaining for people of all ages. This low impact paddle boarding helps in exploring lakes and nearby water bodies having flatwater conditions and make for a great workout.

Making the proper use of inflatable SUP’s, anyone can spend a quality and fun time around a lake or river or ocean or any other type of water body. If you are interested in paddle sports, the inflatable paddle board will be the best option to select for starting.

Inflatable SUP paddleboards can be transported easily by car or by hand as they can fit in any backpacks when in deflated condition. Thus, it saves a lot of your additional expenditure of hiring a car for carrying these paddleboards.

Some inflated paddleboards have textured surfaces which provide a complete grip on board. This is of immense help for the beginners to learn paddle sports.

There are a lot of brands that offer SUP’s but it is always advised by experts to purchase paddleboards having textured tops both for the beginners and pro paddlers. This will help them to have a grip over the surface and also it can prevent a lot of accidents.

For the kids, smaller sized paddle boards are also available that are light in weight which is safe for the children as they can balance easier on lighter boards.

Prices range from $400 to $1,500 for inflatable SUP’s and they typically come with a 2-year warrantee. Here’s a video from Tower SUP showing the inflation and use.
