Inflatable SUP boards
About JP Air Inflatable Paddleboards:
Although the inflatables can be pretty fun toys JP-Australia takes the inflatable SUP boards seriously. That is why they decided to work only with the best materials and give you an amazing product.
JP inflatable SUPs come in the most advanced drop-stitch construction available and are therefore considerably stiffer as well as up to 5kg/11lbs lighter than many comparable inflatable boards out there. What is the point of having a board that you can pack in a back pack if you can’t pick up that backpack afterwards?
When it comes to performance The team at JP was amazed with the GPS speed comparison test between the inflatables and their epoxy siblings as results are almost evened out.
All JP boards work great for the whole family. Soft pads cover the whole standing area making them very comfortable. Thanks to the inflatable technology you can‘t hurt yourself with the board. No matter if you might fall on them or might get hit by them when tumbled in a wave.
They all come with a towing D-ring on the bottom of the nose (except RACAIR ) which works great to tow them at low speeds – even if someone is sitting on them. CRUISAIR, SPORTSTAIR and RIVAIR also come with a deck bungee to tie things onto the board – great for a day on the water or an extended tour. They all include a backpack, pump and repair kit.
About Red Paddle Inflatable Paddleboards:
The team at Red Paddle believes that owning an inflatable board should not mean you have to compromise on performance, looks or quality. We believe that the experience you get when you use one of our boards is that of an authentic SUP experience and not a low quality substitute to the real thing. Inflatable SUP boards offer the ultimate in convenience but this should not be at the expense of performance.
They've always thought of the design of their boards as so much more than just how they look. It’s the whole experience. Owning an inflatable board is about storage, transportation, ease of inflation, as well as on-water performance. To design a board is only part of the process. Owning a Red Paddle Co inflatable board is about the whole package, the real deal and not some compromising experience that leaves you wanting more.
Here are a just a few of things that set Red Paddle boards apart from all other inflatable brands:
Innovative Storage System-After covering over 100,000 miles with their boards Red Paddle has a really good idea of what was needed from the ultimate bag.They're all new bag has the most significant developments yet seen with inflatable board bags. It has integrated wheels that make travelling through airports a pleasure.The hidden back pack system can be stowed when not in use and is super comfy when you need to put the board on your back.The front loading system makes packing and unpacking super simple.The internal straps make sure the board stays put while in transit.This bag truly is the ultimate solution for travel and storage.
Free Phone Case- Red Paddle knows how much people like to capture their SUP experiences to share later with their friends but not everyone can afford an expensive waterproof action camera. So they looked at the problem and recognised that the majority of people now have a mobile phone with an integrated camera so we decided to include a free waterproof phone case with every board so you can now never miss a moment without the fear of getting your phone wet!
Imagine Inflatable Board Technology:
Imagine is making their inflatable boards in their own factory. This is the same factory that has been making yachting sails, Windsurf sails, Kiteboarding Kites, wetsuits, bags etc for the last 25 years. Imagine know what quality is and have invested heavily in the inflatable technology and take great pryde in the fact that we oversee each step of the manufacturing process. For 2014 Imagine uses a technology called drop stitch where hundreds of thousands of threads connect the deck to the bottom of the board. They use an additional layer of material on the deck and bottom and reinforcing on the rails. This allows the boards to be pumped up to 17 psi making them extremely stiff for an inflatable product.
Naish Inflatable Paddleboards:
