Whether you’re involved in yoga, fishing, surfing, or simply out for cruising around on the water, an inflatable paddleboard will quickly become your new best friend. Let me introduce you to a few of my favorites and, like with any new relationship, I’ll go ahead and hit you with their specs. As a bonus, I’ll point out their best feature, too, to save you the trouble!
Overton’s Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard Package
Weight: 44 lbs.
Best feature: The package comes with a 3-piece paddle, storage bag, and dual-action pump.
If you’re looking for an easy, breezy introduction to the world of paddleboarding, look no further. The Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard Package from Overton’s includes everything needed to hop out of the RV and straight onto the water. Durability is promised and delivered as a result of the drop-stitch construction. Designed with a full, round nose for added stability and a smooth glide, every ride is consistently amazing. The grippy EVA deck pad helps hold your feet comfortably in place. I know the one question you’re dying to ask; every RV enthusiast wants to know about transportation. A soft carrying handle makes that task easier than ever. No worries.
Kuda Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard
Weight: 28 lbs.
Best feature: A great value for a versatile and well-made board.
Constructed of ultra-durable, double-layer drop stitch PVC and EVA foam for maximum buoyancy, the Kuda Inflatable SUP and its lime green color will have everyone around you looking envious. A good time is contagious and, at this price point, everyone can enjoy one of their own. This paddleboard deflates and folds up small enough to store in a backpack-style bag (included) or in that cabinet of the RV that you never know what to use for. Also included are an adjustable paddle, inflator pump, leash, and repair kit.
Aquaglide Cascade Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard
Weight: 27 lbs.
Best feature: Performs as close as possible to hard-shell boards.
Often referred to as the perfect all-around paddleboard, the Aquaglide Cascade provides consistent stability in varying conditions. The 6” drop-stitch construction includes extra Powerforce PVC reinforcements that provide a stiffness comparable to a hard-shell board and the performance reflects that same feeling. Rated for pressures up to 14-18 PSI, the high-pressure capability is the key to this paddleboard’s ability to offer a hard-shell experience while maintaining everything there is to love about being an inflatable. A diamond groove EVA deck pad keeps your feet in place and comfortable so you can enjoy the ride. Carry bag, high-pressure hand pump, US fin box, and repair kit are all included.
HO Sports Marlin iSUP
Weight: 46 lbs.
Best feature: The hydrodynamic shape allows for faster cruising speeds.
Bonus feature: Dual double-x bungee zones offer storage on the front and back of the SUP.
The Marlin iSUP from HO Sports has redefined performance for the inflatable paddleboard community. Constructed with new Nano Stitch technology, the Marlin is 30 percent stiffer than the standard inflatable paddleboard and also 30 percent lighter. I call that a win/win… or magic. A longer, narrower shape allows this board to reach new speeds without sacrificing efficiency. Non-slip traction is checked off the list thanks to the marine grade deck pad. Stability is guaranteed with the oversized, single center fin. Perhaps the most enticing feature of the Marlin is the dual double-x bungee zones that double storage capacity. Store gear on the front and the back of your paddleboard for an inclusive adventure that leaves only the shore behind. It includes a dual-action hand pump and paddle.
iRocker Blackfin Model X Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard
Weight: 27 lbs
Best feature: A plethora of attachment points for iRocker accessories
If the water at your next RV stop is begging you to grab your fishing pole, grab the Blackfin paddleboard from iRocker, too, while you’re at it! Super light and easy-to-transport, this inflatable paddleboard is the perfect choice for your next catch. At 35” wide, you have the option to sit or stand without comprising stability. To make this paddleboard even better are the dual cargo areas to hold your gear, the eight multi-use action mounts, built-in fishing rack mounts, and the ultralight full carbon matte shaft paddle. Boasting a high weight capacity, at 450 lbs., the Blackfin inflatable paddleboard supports you and your full day of fishing. This SUP is the SUP that can do it all.
Hala Asana Board
Weight: 22.5 lbs.
Best feature: Tailored for yoga-specific use.
Namaste. For the yogis on the road who are interested in taking their practice to the water, the Hala Asana inflatable paddleboard is the perfect option. With a symmetric nose and tail shape and a versatile fin setup, the Asana board inspires balance, flexibility, and strength for the opportunity to connect mind, body, spirit, and flow. A wide, stable platform is easy to balance and even has space for a copilot or extra gear you wish to bring along. Included with the board are an adjustable carbon paddle, hand pump, fin, rolling backpack for storage, and a repair kit.
Good friends are hard to find, it’s true. However, a good inflatable paddleboard is not. Whether you’re looking for a new way to step up your fishing game or a place on the water to soak in the peace, an inflatable paddleboard is sure to bring joy to your life without taking up valuable space in your RV.
