Why we love inflatable paddle boards

Inflatable paddle boards have taken the world of water sports by storm and it's easy to see why. With their convenience, flexibility, and versatile applications, they revolutionize the art of paddleboarding - making it an accessible and enjoyable adventure for virtually anyone.

One of the biggest selling points of inflatable paddle boards is their simplicity. They're easy to learn, enabling beginners to quickly get up and paddling. Even if you plan on sitting down to paddle, these boards provide a stable and inviting platform, ensuring your confidence grows with every new wave you conquer.

Inflatable paddle boards are a great way to see inaccessible places

Inflatable paddle boards are also fantastic for exploring new places. With their portability, your playground extends from gentle rivers to vast lakes and even to the open sea in one easy-to-pack package. The chance to sightsee from the water offers a unique perspective and a delightful way to immerse in nature. We routinely hike to high mountain lakes and enjoy a day paddling all the way around. It is such a great way to explore by water where roads and trails do not exist.

Water sports have long been associated with fun, adventure, and adrenaline rush. But inflatable paddle boards add another dimension to it: relaxation. The ability to sit down on the board, gently cruising the waters, soaking in the surroundings, is a unique form of active meditation that's both calming and rejuvenating.

Versatility and flexibility

The versatility of sit down paddle boarding also brings it to a whole new level. Imagine fishing in the middle of the lake, surrounded by nature, or doing yoga while balancing with the ebb and flow of the river. All of this is made possible by the inflatable paddle board's stability and comfort.

While paddle boarding often paints a picture of solo riders riding the waves, it is also an enjoyable group activity. Inflatable paddle boards make it easy to have fun with friends and family. Arrange a small race, share laughter as someone makes a splash, or simply enjoy the company in the middle of nature's vast canvas.

Fun with your dog

Furthermore, paddle boarding is not just a human sport. It's a pet-friendly activity too! With the larger surface and sturdy build of inflatable paddle boards, your dog can also join in the fun. We regularly take our dogs out paddle boarding with us and they love to be on the water. It doesn't matter if we are on a river, lake with snow on the shore or the ocean, they love to go with us.

At the start we always put a life jacket on them, but now they are such good swimmers we only keep a harness on them and attach them to the paddle board with one of those elastic leashes people use for running with their dog attached to their waist. Then when they fall off, which I sometimes think they do on purpose when it is hot out, You can easily grab the leash and reel them in.

It brings a whole new dimension to camping at a lake to be able to take our furry friends with us. They recognize our inflatable paddle board bags and will sulk if they see us put them into the car and leave them at home.

Fun standing up and sitting down

We love the flexibilty inflatable paddle boards offer. Stand up paddle boarding, for example, offers more vigorous exercise and direct interaction with the waves. But it's also more challenging, especially for beginners. A sit-down paddle board, on the other hand, provides a more relaxed and accessible option without sacrificing the fun. You can do both on the same outing with an inflatable paddle board.
