Anyone Inflatable SUP? I ordered two new boards a while back, finally came in and both I great. Got my wife and iRocker All around 12ft and myself an iRocker Blackfin XL. Both boards are made extremely well, both inflate to 15-18psi and are very stable. The both come with carbon fiber paddles, pump and backpack

Look into getting a high pressure electric pump. I don't have a iSUP, but I do have a AE AdvancedFrame Convertible Inflatable Kayak. The manual pumping gets old after a while. Regular pumps don't do much for you because of the high pressure needed.

I just got this pump in the link last week for $85 on Amazon. Had to watch slick deals for the price drop. Looking forward to trying it out soon. Might have to get a couple of iSUPs now also. Let us know how they work out!

$85 is a good deal. I paid $115 for my iRocker pump. Inflates my wife's board to 15ps in 7 minutes and mine in 8 minutes. I've pumped then both up ONCE using the manual pump......that was enough Lol

I hear that iSUPs are getting better and better, and you cannot beat the ease of portability!

I was just looking at Advanced Elements' site and noticed the same thing (both iSUPS and Kayaks). Strange.

Yup, its been like that since the end of March. Anything to do with outside stuff. Boats, Campers, Bikes....its been crazy. I bought an E Bike early March. Glad I got it then because they have been flying out the doors. My wife got a new Cannondale road bike and it took three months to get. Kayaks, SUP same deal. I ordered 5 weeks ago. iRocker uses a fulfillment company and they were screwed up, their inventory didn't match up with what iRocker thought they had. It caused big delays for a lot of people. Everyone is blaming Covid Lol.

Yup, some fellow SUPrs love inflatable for river, lake "destination" paddling as so much easier to transport. Not sure they are quite "there" yet for ocean/surf stuff - but, if you saw the sunrise pic in another thread you'd see an inflatable would be perfect on the ocean this morning! smiley Nothing to ride, but the beauty more than made up for it.

We got my daughter a Runwave iSUP earlier this summer and took it with us to Whalehead. Both my daughters took it out in the ocean past the breaks just kneeling with both of them on it and had a blast. One of the times they were out, a school of dolphins swam right around them. They were very exited about it when they came back in, with one of the saying it was coolest thing she's ever seen.

Don't really know the difference but the prices range from a couple hundred to over $1000.

There are also incredible opportunities with end of season (which will prob be around January) rentals, but probably not iSUPs.

Very cool experience for your kids - did same with a grand daughter a few weeks ago! Getting a porpoise "escort" is a high lite for sure!
