Boardworks SHUBU Inflatable Paddle Board
I'm in love! I debated between an inflatable and standard paddle board for months. But being landlocked, I decided to try out the SHUBU and I don't regret it! The military grade rubber is burly and it does stiffen when inflated - I believe they can go to about 12-14 psi, but I've only ever pumped it to about 8 psi which more than does the job on the lakes. (I'd definitely want it stiffer for the river though.) It inflates/deflated quickly and is easy to get into the backpack. Very stable board! I'm perfecting my headstands on it already!
I have yet to fly with it, but the convenience of the inflatable has already proved its worth on the road. I've taken it to Bryce and Green River on camping trips where otherwise I wouldn't have had room (I had a cargo box on my roof for those).
My goal this summer is to get out on some smaller rapids with this! I'll update with performance on that later!
