    The convenience of an inflatable, the performance of a hard board.

    Badfish and Boardworks put their heads together to create the MCIT Inflatable Stand-Up Paddle Board, which marries the convenience and durability of an inflatable with the stability and performance of a hard board. The result is a do-it-all SUP that performs for advanced riders on white water and in the surf, but is also easy for new flat water paddlers and touring aficionados to enjoy. The MCIT technology features beefy side rails that taper down towards the nose and tail to give the board greater stability and quicker response than other inflatables. The deck, whose rigidity is enhanced by the innovative Multi-Chamber technology, rests slightly lower than the rails to lower your center of gravity to give you excellent stability. Its drop-stitch construction and high air pressure supply a solid, rigid hull that performs well in surf, whitewater, and flatwater.

    The MCIT Inflatable is made from PVC-coated high-denier polyester that offers superb durability and longevity; the hard nose cone increases impact resistance against rocks and floating debris. In back, a 2 + 1 fin setup, also known as thruster setup, provides drive, maneuverability, and stability in a wide range of conditions. If you’re paddling in shallow waters, or if you prefer a twin setup, you can remove the 7-inch center fin. The large deck pad reduces foot fatigue and offers a soft surface when you kneel on the board, and the forward deck is rigged with bungee straps secure a cooler or a dry bag. The board can be transported in the included backpack; if you’re simply unloading it already inflated from the roof of your car, bow and stern carry handles and a center carry handle help make transport to and from the water a breeze.

    Great river board but not very durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I own 3 inflatable river boards - this one is a favorite for beginning in white water. The most stable, surfs well, can carry luggage, easy to carry. ... a fantastic river runer, even if not my favorite, has good handles...however after about 2 years it is developing lots of small holes on the side chambers, requires constant fixing and now it seems to be no longer fixable. On the other side the C4 and starboard boards have been on the river just as much and require no fixing at all. The overall quality and durability of this board does not seem to be as good as the other boards, especially for the side chambers ... I can't take mine on a river at this point I don't know if it will be fixable since new holes appear regularly on it....

    Love the boat

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Love this boat. So stable it's unbelievable. Ran the Colorado and the Green at high water and it ripped. Did notice in bigger whitewater you can end up with a big puddle on top of the boat, then the puddle starts to slosh and wants to push you around. Would have loved the boat more if it would have held air. Took it out for its maiden voyage and found three separate seem leaks. Lots of seems on the mcit. Check your boat first at home. As always backcountry rocks with the customer service. They traded me out for the same boat no questions asked . Back to the river. Hope this one holds.

    Had a fantastic opportunity to take this bad rig out on a class 3 stretch and had the time of my life.



    From inflating to packing it up the board was super simple to use with little instruction. The construction of the board makes it a very rigid platform and very stable ride. The deck is substantially lower than the side rail chambers which creates a more responsive feel on the water. This board is burly and can take a beating from rough river bottoms. I really would like to put this board in my quiver of toys to bring to the river. Even though I didn't successfully make it standing through a single rapid I think I could get better at this.



    If you want to talk about this board or put together an order contact me directly.

    Love it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great inflatable SUP. You may give up a little bit of flatwater speed, but for me the versatility of running C-2 white water, and not worrying about the kids beaching it on the rocks it was worth it. Also the ability to load into a well designed moderate sized pack makes for easy access to mountain lakes you might otherwise not be able to SUP on.

    The metal thing next to it is an old standard, US license plate, turned upside-down for a size reference.



    The bag is a 4-way fold of one piece of material, which is held together by 3 snaps on the long side, and 2 on the short side (pictured). I haven't inflated it yet in this photo, but I did unfold the board and re-fold it back into its bag without trouble before taking this.

    STABLE

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've taken this board out a few times and when compared to my 10' SHUBU board it is noticeably more stable and can handle more weight. Larger folks (170lbs +) usually struggle on my SHUBU board, so this is an option that offers better stability and flotation.



    It is a little slower than the SHUBU but it's an absolutely awesome beginner board. I would also recommend it for river use since the rigid chambers on either side of the board give you better stability and protection than the SHUBU.

    Best inflatable yet!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This board kills it! If you want to run rivers or just have a super stable, durable SUP that you can pack anywhere than this is your board.

    Multi chamber technology means that this board remains rigid so it glides exceptionally well. It is designed with river running in mind and is the perfect tool for whitewater. It also rolls up into its own pack so you can hike in to that lake or river off the beaten path.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've paddled the rivers for about 4 years, demo'd and paddled over 20-30 models and the MCIT has been my go-to board.



    I can paddle easily with my black lab on the board for a chill cruise or push it down some Class IV rapids. It excels at stability and confidence boosting.



    I will always have a MCIT in my SUP quiver.

    I'm 6'5" 195lbs. Moderately proficient SUP'er, done most of my paddling on a Doyle 11' hardboard. I want one board to run class 3 rapids, do some river over nighters, surf a bit, loaf, and take the odd nap on the lake. Should I get the 10'6" board, or the 11'6" board? Thanks for any thoughts. -- Alec

    Hey Alec.

    If you are going to load the boat up with overnight gear I would DEFINITELY suggest the longer boat. With your tall stature a longer boat will be better able to support your weight and your gear.



    Though keep in mind the longer board will be harder to wield on the river since it will require more effort to turn - so that's something to consider as well. I've only ever done Class II rapids on my Boardworks SHUBU board and it was a riot, but I'm not very strong or big, so I had a hard time even getting my 10' board to respond super quickly. But then again I'm 5'3" and 120 lbs - not a great deal of power in my chicken arms!



    Happy nappin!
