What length paddle do I need?

Paddle length is important for technique, posture, and efficiency. If too long or short, it could cause joint and back injuries, and also not be efficient over long periods. The rule of thumb is to have a paddle “one shaka” (6-8 inches) over your head. Longer is not better and could even cause shoulder joint injury.

Your height plus 7 inches is the magic number.

3 Factors In The Rise Of Stand-Up Paddling

1. Easy to Learning
Whereas surfing can take hours upon hours and days upon days of practice to get any good, but Stand-up Paddling can be learned in under an hour for adults and kids.
For those who feel unsteady or nervous, they can start on their knees and only stand when their balance has improved.
Once you get the hang of it, you can then begin to work on increasing your skill level. However there is very little you need to know in the beginning to get started and feel confident. With one or two tries, you will be having a lot of fun.

2. Ideal for All Athletic Types
You do not have to have a surfer’s body to be good at stand-up paddling. People of all shapes and sizes and all athletic abilities can do this sport.
It can be tailored to suit your needs as well as your fitness level. Slow and easy for those who need to build up strength and balance or if you are up to it, you can take it to a far more extreme level.
The fitness benefits are outstanding. There are very few other sports that provide such a complete core workout while still being very safe and easy on the body. For this reason it is popular with people from all walks of life.
You will find that not only does your overall body strength improve very quickly but your balance will improve as well.

3. You Don’t Need High Surf
Stand-up paddle surfing allows you to get out on the water anytime. You don’t have to schedule your activity around high and low tides.
Surfing has long been a popular sport in areas with big waves, but stand-up surfing allows the rest of us who do not live in high surf areas to enjoy paddle boarding as well. We can now take our boards down rivers, across lakes, or touring in ocean bays.
River SUP’ing in particular is gaining huge popularity in the kayaking community. I know several whitewater kayakers myself who have become addicted to stand-up paddling. The thrill of navigating a board down a raging river is almost unmatched.
There is no better time to get outdoors, learn a new sport, increase your fitness level and have a fantastic time doing it.

How to repair an Inflatable SUP?

What is the recommended and max PSI for my inflatable paddle board?

We recommend riding the board  from 10-15 PSI.

Most people inflate their board to about 10-12 PSI. The higher PSI will help if you are riding in cold or choppy water. If you need a bit more stability, try increasing the PSI of your board as well.

The max PSI of the inflatables is 25. We don’t recommend inflating over about 15 PSI as you will only see small, incremental gains in the board’s rigidity past that point.

The Durability of ISUP VS Hard SUP

Inflatables are more durable than hard paddle boards.

If you drop your inflatable SUP by accident, it won’t crack or scratch. If you drop your hard paddle board, there’s a chance your board will be damaged and may need to be repaired immediately. If you want a carefree board, an inflatable will be your best option.

Since inflatables are more durable, they are the perfect board to use when white water paddling or paddling rocky rivers.
