What Makes a Good Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard?

There are certain features you should be on the lookout for while picking the best paddleboard for you. Consider the following features, for example:

Stable on the Water

This depends on the overall size of the paddleboard. Generally speaking, the larger the paddleboard, the more stable it can be on the water. So opt for iSUPs that are wider than 30 inches.

Packs Small

The whole point of an iSUP is that it’s easier to pack and take around than a hardboard. The best boards are the ones you can deflate to the smallest size in comparison to their inflated size. Find something that can be packed up or rolled into the size of a sleeping bag.

Thick Enough to Float High

Some iSUPs are only as thick as 4 inches, which makes them lighter but at the cost of sinking. While a 4-inch iSUP can be very easy to maneuver in the water, a 6-inch iSUP will float higher. So, the thicker the iSUP, the more speed it’ll catch and the less you have to worry about your board bending or warping.

Explore More Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board Options

Since almost all of the best inflatable stand-up paddleboards on the market are bound to come with at least some sort of inconvenience – usually a flaw in the travel bag design as you may have noticed, it makes sense to pay the most attention to the paddleboard itself.

And one of the best paddleboards on this list is the SereneLife iSUP. It’s light enough to pack and travel with and holds up the most weight in comparison to its size. You can buy your own floating paddles and eliminate any inconvenience you may experience using their own paddles.
