Inflatable Tech 101:  What about the thickness of a board?

  • 4″ thick boards are best for lightweight paddlers and perform better in the surf
  • 4.75″ to 6″ thick boards offer more flotation, stiffness and the ability handle more weight (think gear, kids, dogs, etc.)

Starboard Astros in stock


The inflatable SUP revolution continues with Starboard’s new carbon composite rail for even greater stiffness (Available in the Deluxe version of their Astro Inflatable line). That means better overall performance in all conditions. Starboard Astros inflate to 18psi and include travel bags with wheels, dual-action pumps, US fin boxes and more.  Check out their full 2016 lineup and get pumped up!

You are so Rogue…


Rogue returns to the forefront of SUP Design with their brand new 2015 quiver. Building on the success of their popular All-Water line, a new Blue and Pink series is now available alongside their classics line. Their performance boards (racing and touring) feature a quiver of updated shapes, new graphics and tons of useful features.  New for 2015, Rogue is now offering select models in their new R9 construction making them even more affordable.


All-Waters -Rogue has cornered that part of the market with their impressive line of graphic-drenched All-Water boards.  Notably the first SUP company to veer away from centered logos and traditional longboard lines, Rogue has been the innovator and one look at their boards will tell the story.  The best part is they back it up with industry-leading construction all at a reasonable price.  Available in 102′, 10’8′ and 11’2′ lengths.

Touring Series (11’4″ & 12’6) – Built to suit paddlers who want the speed and glide of a displacement style hull (think smooth and fast) yet portable enough for anyone to load without a struggle. It includes built-in tie-downs for packing gear on the front and back.

Touring 11'6 and 12'6 in R9 Construction

Touring 11’6 and 12’6 in R9 Construction

Utility SeriesLooking for a stable board for both flatwater and surf? The Tesoro line offers up both and although they’ve kept the look on the conservative side, the extra width makes them attractive to newbies and intermediate paddlers.

R1 Race (12’6) and Vandal (14′) – Coming off yet another successful test at the 2014 Battle of the Paddle, they have finally put their race boards into production and they rank among the flashiest on the market.  At around 26lbs, the 12’6 stock-class racer is a dialed production board with carbon inlay and it’s bigger brother, the 14′ R1 Race version is a stealth flatwater flyer.

GreatBear Touring Boards


New Boardworks Greatbear touring boards along with the Raven and Sirena now in stock.The ‘Greatbear’ is a collaboration with Canadian team ambassador, Norm Hann, and is designed to be the ultimate tour and expedition board. Read more here –

Inspired by Norm’s conservation efforts, Boardworks has pledged

$20 of the sale of each Great Bear board to be donated to StandUp4GreatBear

, a non-profit organization that promotes awareness and encourages the protection of Great Bear Rainforest through “expeditions, partnerships and action.” THE ISSUE: Enbridge Inc, a Calgary-based oil and gas company has proposed the construction of a 1,170 km pipeline running from Alberta’s tar sands to Kitimat on British Columbia’s west coast. From here, crude oil would be loaded into super tankers bound for Asia.Stand-Header Before reaching the open ocean, these tankers would first need to pass through some of the most dangerous navigable waters in the world,―the narrow inlets of the Great Bear Rainforest. If this happens, a devastating oil spill is inevitable that would wipe out one of the most pristine marine environments on the planet.
