Inflatable Paddle Boards are Better for Handling Water Hazards

The growing popularity of stand up paddle boarding around the UK is easy to see by all the paddlers on the water. We love that.
But with more paddlers often comes more caution. Things like a floating branch, a runaway paddle or even litter on the water (boo) can cause a smart paddler to become more aware of their surroundings.
Nevertheless, a bump or two with water debris or even a rocky shoreline is a near-certainty. If you’re using an old rigid board and you bump up against a branch or a rock, your board is going to suffer.
A hole in your fiberglass can lead to a costly and time-consuming repair. Not so with an inflatable paddle board!
In fact, iROCKER inflatable stand up paddle boards are designed and built to take on debris with flair. Our construction means our boards react to bumps a bit like bumper cars at an amusement park. That means no costly repairs for your board and no down time from SUP.
We’re so confident in the science and skill behind our construction that we can offer one of the best warranties anywhere, protecting your investment and your budget.

Inflatable Paddle Boards are Better for Protecting Your Body

Water debris isn’t the only potential water hazard. A smart SUP-er also watches out for people. This is true for most sports, where more people can mean more risk of a close encounter with the human kind. It’s all part of the fun unless you get bumped by a SUP-er on a rigid board. Ouch!
This risk is easily mitigated with a bump-friendly inflatable stand up paddle board. If you like to SUP with mates or your loved ones, paddling on bump-friendly boards is critical.
Think about it: if Sister Sally or Cubicle Mate Molly careens into you and your board on your next group SUP outing, do you want her to hit you with a rigid board or a much more supple inflatable board?
No doubt, inflatable paddle boards are better for protecting your body.

Inflatable Paddle Boards are Better for Travel

Durability, safety and value are only the beginning when ticking off the advantages of inflatable paddle boards over rigid boards. Of course, we had to save our fave for last: inflatable paddle boards are better for travel.
What SUP fan isn’t a travel junkie? We all are! But have you tried traveling with a rigid board? Not only is it tons of extra work, you can’t exactly take your rigid board everywhere.
Inflatable paddle boards save the travel challenge because they’re also deflatable. This means you can just as easily deflate your board and pack it up for travel as you can inflate it exactly when and where you like.
