Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boards

Inflatable or Hardboard?
Almost everybody nows buys an inflatable SUP board (and not a hardboard) because they are portable and the performance is almost similar.

Size?
Beginners need a stable = WIDE enough Board. The heavier (kg) the beginner ➨ the wider (cm) the board

Bodyweight lower 80 kg ➨ Board 76 cm (30” inch) WIDE 
Bodyweight between 80-100 kg ➨ Board 81 cm (32” inch) WIDE
Bodyweight over 100 kg ➨ Board 86 cm (34” inch) WIDE

Example: You are 85 kg. ? Then a board that is 81 cm  (32” inch) wide is ok. Example the FIT OCEAN Magic Glide 10’8.
“My partner is lighter than me (60 kg) can he use the same 81 cm board?” – Yes, this board is also suitable for your partner. A board can never be too wide.
“My partner is heavier than me (110 kg) can he use the same 81 cm wide board?” – No. In this case, choose a board that is 86 cm wide so that it fits both.

Which category / model ?
80% buys an ALLROUND/ FAMILY / FUN for the whole family. These work on lakes, ocean and rivers. Advanced paddlers will enjoy a board in the TOURING catagory.

Price-Quality ?

  • We don’t recommend buying very low priced no-name SUP Boards at the Supermarket and Outlet which are also low cost produced (bad gluing, leaking, etc.). We do not sell these.
  • There are the well know brands like Red Paddle, Naish, Starboard which costs 1000+ CHF and these we do sell. These boards have higher total costs (production, sales, marketing).
  • A good allround SUP of high quality production complete with paddle does not have to cost a thousand Swiss Francs. Here are some of our bestsellers:
