What kind of paddle board do I buy for my travels?
When we hear the word Paddle Board, we imagine a big board that weighs a lot and is uncomfortable to transport. To avoid precisely this, inflatable SUPs were created. These types of boards don’t occupy any space. Something that helps its transport, by air or road. Easy as folding and storing in your own bag.
That´s why if you travel we recommend these types of paddle boards. Also, today the SUP packs come full of everything you need. Board, oar, pump, backpack, repair kit and leash. Some come with a waterproof smartphone case.
