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. […]

Reddit post: Advantages of an inflatable board

What advantages have inflatable SUPs in comparison with a rigid board? That was the question on a recent Reddit post  that called my attention to the inherent interest in the topic. As I struggle to keep up with work, personal life and paddleboarding, I have this urge […]

The new ISLE Lotus Inflatable Yoga Paddle Board is a beauty!

The new ISLE Lotus Inflatable Yoga Paddle Board is a beauty!

The new Isle Surf & SUP newsletter spotlights their new fitness and yoga friendly board and they do it in a very presentable way. The newsletter is beautifully designed for a beautifully designed SUP. The new Lotus is an advancement to it’s predecessor the well reviewed ISLE Airtech Inflatable 10’4 Yoga SUP, an ISUP that was a hit in the SUP fitness and yoga communities due to it’s lightweight, easy to carry and inflate, beautifully designed body.

The new Lotus is poised to be a hit as well as it immediately catches ones attention with a flowery design in green, blue and grey. Other than that, it’s still a stable board, that is super easy to carry even when fully inflated. The board pumps up in about 10 minutes to a sturdy SUP great for all your yoga moves. The Lotus pad is about as close to a yoga mat as you can get on a board and the deck pad sticks both when wet and dry. It sticks to your feet to help hold you in position and it has the right shape (quite narrow), size (10,0), and feel of a perfect yoga board (slightly smaller than the previous ISLE Yoga at 10’4).

Check this paddler, about to hit the water on the old ISLE YOga.

Finally warm enough to break out the Sup!!!! #lake #lakelife #sup #islepaddleboards #bringonspring

The backpack is great and has a full front zip rather than a top-load drawstring, this makes loading and unloading the board, pump, and fin very easy. And according to the ISLE website, the ISLE 10’ Lotus Inflatable Yoga Paddle Board offers a healthy number of features designed for stability, portability and fitness on the water. The shape of the board gives it the glide for leisurely cruising flatwater while the expansive deck pad gives ample room for yoga, Pilates, or any fitness related exercise. The new brushed comfort deck pad serves as the perfect exercise mat while the single front bungee keeps your water bottle and gear out of your way during practice but easy-access at your fingertips.

Wow, check @melelina10k3 pose on the ISLE Yoga.

Stranded at Fyre Festival

Stranded at Fyre Festival

Fyre Festival was all the rage on social media this Friday, April 28th. Look up #fyrefestival on Twitter or the festivals subreddit.

Stranded on Fyre Festival, scene from Castaway.

So from scanning multiple online news sources, as well as twitter, I can safely say this list is the only cross examined and confirmed accounts as to what exactly is happening.
-The “private flights” are chartered 737’s with economy class seating and a soda+chips for each person
-the luxury boutique accommodations are literal disaster relief tents with beds in them (even advertised as disaster relief tents on the manufacturer’s website. Some sources claim it’s the same ones used in the Haiti earthquake disaster.)
-The gourmet chef food handed out so far is two slices of bread, cheese slices and a handful of greens in a styrofoam container
-the “private island” is actually Great Exuma, which has a population of several thousand, with the festival taking place on a beach a stone’s throw from a major resort
-there was luggage stolen from the camp sites by locals
-the music hasn’t even started yet and yet half of the artists have cancelled because they weren’t payed, now it looks like the entire festival is being called off with all further flights cancelled on the tarmac
-the US embassy in the Bahamas is currently offering instance to stranded festivalgoers
-they can’t get enough planes in fast enough because all the incoming Miami flights were canceled
-there are no refunds at this time. The website has made a statement saying all sales are final.
