How Does an Inflatable paddle Board Work ?
A Stand up paddle board is essentially just a board which can be used on the water for so many differents activities such as paddle boarding, paddle surfing, touring paddle board, paddle board yoga or fishing paddle board.
Traditional hard boards are made of lightweight fiberglass.or wooden paddle boards. An inflatable paddle board is very similar to a hard sup board, except that they can be deflated when not in use, making them easy to store and transport.
An inflatable sup needs a pump in order to be inflated to be as stiff as possible. Our inflatable paddle board come supplied with a air hand pump, which are more physically demanding than electric pumps but give more freedom. However, they’re the safer option as electric pump can put too much pressure on the seams, potentially leading to ruptures.
As well as being stiff from being inflated to the correct thickness, inflatable stand up paddle board have another feature to make them stable. Rails are inserted down the sides of the boards to prevent flex and buckling, particularly with heavy riders.
While a hard paddleboard is carefully shaped to catch the waves as easily as possible, the inflatable nature of a stand up paddle board means that the thickness is the same the whole way down the board.
However, inflatable sup is shorter than hard paddle board, and they usually have wide noses and narrow backs, which makes up for their uniform thickness. This is just one way that an inflatable sup manage to catch and ride waves in such a similar way to surf boards.
