The most affordable racing #sup board
I had been looking for a while now for an affordable racing paddleboard as I’ve been wanting to join my fellow folks at 954 Race league in Fort Lauderdale. I was still not ready financially, that is, to purchase a full fledged carbon race board. I am still not there financially. Nevertheless I kept looking around for a racing board and talking to different suppliers and manufacturers. And there just isn’t a good rigid racingboard below 1000 U$D, I imagine because the material to build a carbon board is expensive and the time invested in manufacturing one is also a good factor in this price.
So I kept an eye on Amazon and found a few interesting options. And keeping the original spirit of this website, I focused on researching inflatable paddleboards. What were my options for inflatable racing boards? There weren’t many but the ones available were quite interesting.
I was divided between the Aqua Marina Competitive Inflatable, as they are also a great brand, but ended up opting for the price and function of the Bluefin SUP Stand Up Inflatable Paddle Board | 14′ Sprint Model. By looking at the pictures, you can already have an idea of the board. It’s a 14′ board with a SLEEK TOURING RACE DESIGN. It’s a pretty board, functional, projected to be fast and at an affordable inexpensive price of 499 U$D in the US.
The SUP is a great race Stand Up Paddle Board package available on the market and these Bluefin iSUP kits come with everything needed for beginner and experienced paddle boarders. I have been paddling for a while but I’m not that active and was recently out for a few months due to a hernia surgery. Now with this board, I plan to be back for good paddling every chance I get.
