There are very many reasons as to why someone would want to buy an inflatable sup board. Inflatable sup boards are the most portable version of a canoe or a surfboard, as the name would suggest. The best part about them is that you can carry them with you in a compact, space efficient package. So, if you have been thinking of buying an inflatable sup board, but are still on the fence, here are some outstanding reasons as to why buying one would be a great idea. This, of course, is provided you like paddling in general.
Benefits of owning an inflatable sup board
- Portable: An inflatable sup board is highly portable. When deflated, the entire board is very small and quite compact. Which means you do not need a big off-road truck haul it around. Any regular car will do. This gives it one of its unique qualities when compared to the traditional boards. An inflatable board travels much more easily.
- Durability: An inflatable board is, surprisingly enough, much more durable than a regular Epoxy or fiberglass board. Of course, the fiberglass boards perform better that inflatable ones, but when it comes to durability and maintenance, an inflatable board is more durable and easy to maintain than a regular board.
- Easy to store and care for: With an inflatable sup board, you do not need to worry about where you are going to store it or just how much waxing it will need. As long as you dry it off, deflate and stick it in its protective cover, you can keep it in the trunk of your car and have it with you always. This is not something you can do with a regular board.
- Flexibility: This is another added advantage of these sorts of sup boards. As long as you always have it with you, you can take advantage of the unexpected paddling opportunities that arise on a regular basis when you are travelling. As opposed to a regular board that will require prior planning for transportation and storage logistics.
These are some of the advantages that stand out when it comes to owning an inflatable sup board versus owning a regular fiberglass board. Another advantage that is worth noting is that when traveling long distances, you do not have to pay for your inflatable board while boarding a plane. You can simply carry it on like you would a hand bag.
