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 to come back with this blog and be a helpful source to others as others have not managed to do it yet. All other blogs or posts on the topic of inflatables seem made by robots, foreigners with a not so good command of the english language, or non identified reviewers with the sole intent of creating posts to promote their affiliate offers. The Reddit post seems to me someone is trying to explain something but doesn’t manage to do it. Nevertheless the advantages are clear and confirmed by the commenters on the post.
The original poster mentions that they are lightweight, and also can be very simple to transport and transfer, because in the “deflated state the take very few place.” And what else? Are there still some characteristic features of inflatable boards?
