FSUP motor board creates unique and versatile watercraft that can be rigged and used in a multitude of ways - for stand up paddling, or for using with optional beach chairs, or even zero gravity lounger.
Most basic use of FSUP380 paddle board is while stand up paddling with SUP paddle. It wide enough to walk on it, and to accommodate up to 2-3 persons. Most comfortable use is with 1-2 beach or lawn chairs chairs, secured between splash guards with optional lashing tie downs. Will need 4 lashing tie downs per chair. Even zero gravity lounge can be secured between grommets in splash guards.
FSUP board comes with kayak gear tracks for optional rod holders, cup holders and other accessories that can be secured to regular type of kayaks. In addition, there are 2 mount base patches that can work with both Scotty or Railblaza accessories.

Best use of FSUP380 motor board is when it paired with our optional Electric Fin, starting at $299. It is ideal combination, offering speeds around 4 mph and hours of fun. SUP paddle can act as a rudder, to easily steer into direction you need to go. Go for miles and reach best fishing spots with ease.
FSUP380 is also easier to carry from car to the water, by simply attaching optional kayak cart to front of board, and using rear end tubes handles to comfortably pull loaded board behind a person. FSUP380 board features 2 valves for faster deflation.
Inflatable Fishing Paddle Board FSUP380:
Quick Tip: Use kayak cart to move FSUP board around. Place kayak cart under bow area of FSUP, and secure with bungee cords to D-rings on top of board. Use rear handles to pull FSUP behind or push forward. Cut out in rear of FSUP board is perfect for this purpose.
Question: Does trolling motor shaft should touch edge of board when installed on motor mount?
Answer: Yes, that is design feature, to allow additional support for heavier motors when attached to the motor mount. Motor shaft should freely rest against edge of surface of the FSUP board. Working prop that moves board forward creates lever, pulling heavily on a motor mount secured to D-rings. Without additional support excessive force could damage D-rings fittings. Rotating motor shaft resting against surface of board will not damage it, as most of the movements are minimal and it is heavy-duty fabric. However, if shaft rotates hundred times per seconds, then additional PVC patch can be glued to that edge for extra protection. For easiest set up, we recommend to tighten shaft lock in forward position, and use paddle to steer board when moving, instead of steering with a motor tiller. While you can choose to steer with motor tiller handle, we believe the best way is to steer with paddle that act as a rudder.
