Beginners or soggy river rats alike will enjoy the ease and versatility of the AIRE CruzAIRE Inflatable Stand Up Paddleboard. Stability reigns supreme on this portable waterbaby—a ballast down below counteracts your weight on top for a smooth and steady ride over the water. The traction pad gets a grip on your paws whether you're still getting your sea legs or are ready to rumble with some mild rapids. Whether your storage space is limited or you vehicle doesn't have a boat rack (or both), this inflatable board stores small in-house and in-car and puffs up big for nothing but on-water enjoyment.
Made from uber-rugged 1100D PVC, this SUP won't wither when you run into a few rocks at the put-in or take a tour through a watery, dead-tree graveyard. The internal AIREcell system, a 14mm-thich urethane bladder, keeps this board buoyed when inflated to a mere 8 psi. When fully pumped up, this SUP has a slightly pointed noise and a rounded tail to make mini-surf manageable and navigating the flats damn nifty.
Three fins come off (no hardware required) so you can customize the control. Use one when you're simply cruising across the lake. Use all three fins when you're river running and you'll hit the flats and rapids all in a small stretch of space. Bow bungee deck rigging holds your paddle when you need to cool off with a quick dip. Bow, stern, and side carry handles make it easy to tote 28 pounds of portable fun. The included stuff sack has a repair kit on the off-chance you spring a leak and need a quick fix.
