Consider an Inflatable Paddle Board Over a Standard Board

Over the past decade or so, stand up paddle boarding has become very popular across the United States. There are many reasons for this, starting with the fact that it’s a cool, unique way to have fun out on the water. In addition, it is a great way to get in shape. From your arms, to your core, to your cardio, stand up paddle boarding really is a great total body workout. Plus, you get to do it out in the water on a beautiful day, which definitely beats the gym.

It used to be that if you wanted to buy a paddle board, you had to go with one made of a hard, cumbersome substance like you’d see in a surfboard. But now there’s another available option… the inflatable paddle board. Here are a few reasons why you might want to consider an inflatable SUP like the Saturn SUP365S over a standard board:

Convenience. An inflatable SUP like the SUP356S is much more convenient to own than a standard SUP, which requires a lot more space for storage and transport. With an inflatable paddle board, you can just let the air out, pack it in its carrying case, and toss it in your trunk, closet, or garage. There’s no need to clear out space or install a roof rack on your car. You can also pack it in your luggage and take it on a trip.

Affordability. As previously mentioned, inflatable paddle boards do not require the added expenses of something like a roof rack. They also cost a lot less up front. For example, the Saturn SUP365S is available on for $429, while an equivalent standard paddle board could cost over $1,000. It even comes with a hand pump, carrying bag, and repair kit.

Durability. Just because your stand up paddle board is inflatable, does not mean it can’t be just as durable as any other board. Saturn took this to heart when they designed their boards, constructing them out of new and innovative high-performance drop-stitch materials that allow them to withstand a ton of wear and tear without suffering any punctures or abrasions.

Performance. Convenience and cost savings are great, but they’d be basically meaningless if your inflatable paddle board didn’t perform out on the water. But you don’t have to worry about that with the SUP365S, which offers great, smooth rides whether you’re on calm water or out on the choppy ocean. It is also much lighter than standard SUPs, making it easier to handle, especially for people just starting to get into the hobby.

Versatility. One of the strongest points of the SUP365S’s design is its versatility. Yes, you are buying it because you want to pursue the hobby of stand up paddle boarding. But thanks to the built-in set of D-rings on the board, a seat can easily be attached to create your very own inflatable kayak. Now you’re getting two crafts for the price of one.
