INFLATABLE PADDLE BOARDS

If you are only going to own one board, it has to be an Allround Inflatable Paddle Board. Great for beginners and with enough allround performance to suit even the most experienced of paddle boarders. We would strongly recommend buying 6” thick board rather than narrower models as they offer extra rigidity and this greatly improves speed and stability.

The Allround boards’ flexibility enable boarders to enjoy their inflatable paddle board on flat water, surf, white water, rivers and lakes.

General attributes are easy cruising, excellent stability and manoeuvrable enough to enjoy the surf.

Inflatable Paddle Board Reviews 2018

Our review of the best Inflatable Paddle Boards in 2018 is underway with the full review to be completed by end February.

 

Boards are lighter and stronger than ever before. New manufacturing techniques and board designs ensure we have the greatest choice of boards ever available and Stand Up Paddleboarding is regarded as the World's fastest growing watersport.

 

Concern over low quality boards remains an issue for the industry as the availability of cheap, low end boards grows. Stand Up Paddle Boarding associations echo these concerns, worried new participants will be put off the sport through poor quality experiences on low end boards.

 

With this in mind, our reviews for 2018 focus on boards produced only at the World’s top factories. This ensures every board we review has been manufactured using industry leading techniques, using the best quality materials and accessories. We have also tried to provide the widest range of boards from across Europe which are all freely available to order online.

 

For more information on why certain iSUPs are included or excluded, see our About Page.

 

Whilst the boards differ in design and performance, all the boards we have reviewed are guaranteed to deliver an authentic paddle boarding experience.

 

Touring Inflatable Paddle Boards provide excellent glide and speed attributes. Best suited to distance paddling, they are relatively effortless to paddle and generally stable enough for inexperienced paddle boarders. However, they lack the manoeuverability of Allround iSUPs so less suitable for beginners or those looking to explore narrower waterways, caves, etc.

 

Touring Inflatable Paddle Boards are great for longer trips and have room for bags and general adventure kit. However, they can be a limited option due to the extra size and weight
