Inflatable paddle boards, also known as iSUPs, have been making waves in the water community, offering users a whole host of surprising benefits that hard paddle boards simply can’t compete with.

Here’s what we’re talking about:

1. They pack down into a standard backpack

First off, let's talk about portability. Picture this: when deflated, an iSUP can be rolled up into a compact size, stashed away in a backpack and carried with ease. This makes them perfect for travel, hiking to remote water bodies and fitting into small storage spaces. Plus, you don’t have to fork out on a roof rack!

2. They’re made of strong stuff

Now, durability is where they really shine. You might think iSUPs are delicate, but not these sturdy champs! Constructed with high-quality materials like high grade multi-layer laminated PVC and the latest drop-stitch technology, these paddle boards can take a beating from rocky shores and shallow waters without breaking a sweat.

3. They can be used anywhere

Whether you're into serene paddles on calm lakes, daring river escapades, riding waves in the mighty ocean, or even trying out some yoga moves on water, these inflatable wonders have got you covered!

4. They’re perfect for beginners

Inflatable paddle boards are like the gentle giants of the water world. Their stability and buoyancy make them super newbie-friendly, allowing you to find your balance and build confidence without the fear of toppling in.

5. They offer enhanced safety

With their soft surfaces and rounded edges, iSUPs reduce the risk of injuries from falls or collisions. Perfect for family fun time and worry-free paddling with the little ones.

6. They give a comfortable ride

The soft deck of inflatable paddle boards offers a cushy paddling experience, putting less strain on your feet, legs and joints during those long, exhilarating sessions on the water.

7. They’re good value for money

Inflatable paddle boards are kind to your pocket. As we mentioned earlier, no need for those pricey roof racks or spacious storage areas. And when it comes to maintenance, you’ll be sorted with a repair kit (included in our starter kits, no less!).

8. They’re kinder to Mother Nature

Inflatable paddle boards have a lower environmental impact compared to those traditional boards made from fiberglass or epoxy. Their eco-friendly materials and less resource-intensive manufacturing process make them a win for the planet.

9. They can carry two people

Every board is different, but the Aquaplanet MAX 10’6″ can carry 130kg with ease – that’s two healthy adults or a gaggle of under 6s (forgetting the logistics of such a scene!).

So, there you have it. Whether you're a seasoned paddler or a first-timer looking to explore the beauty of paddleboarding, an iSUP from Aquaplanet is your ticket to a world of paddling pleasure. Happy paddling!
