Welcome to Inflatable Boarder!
We’re a leading online publisher of trusted, independent reviews of inflatable stand up paddle boards (also known as SUPs or iSUPs), accessories, and related watersports equipment.
Our family loves being outdoors, so I know firsthand the difference that good gear makes. On our website, you’ll find honest, in-depth reviews of the best inflatable SUPs on the market. Our #1 rated hands-on reviews include a massive number of high-quality photos and video that we shoot ourselves so that you can see exactly what to expect. A new board can be a big investment, and if you’re not able to “kick the tires” yourself before buying, we want our reviews to be the next best thing.
For the vast majority of paddlers, we feel that inflatable paddle boards are a far better choice than rigid SUPs (AKA hard boards). Inflatable paddleboards made with drop-stitch construction have improved amazingly in the last decade and now offer an unparalleled blend of portability, durability, and performance. In our opinion, inflatable boards are the best all-around option for flatwater paddling, yoga, and SUP fitness workouts, river SUP, families, touring, and more. They’re also extremely safe for paddling around small children, and the tough military-grade PVC skin means you can even bring your dog along.
Whatever your experience level, budget, or paddling interests may be, we’re here to help you find the inflatable SUP that’s best for you. So if you’re a beginner and need additional assistance — or simply have a question that we didn’t answer in the review — feel free to drop us a line! We’re always quick to respond and are more than happy to help you find the best board for you.
