A look at the new Race inflatable SUP

Green Water Sports recently wrote an extended review of the 12’6″ Race inflatable SUP by Red Paddle Co. A highly sought after racing inflatable SUP and a great all round cruising board.

In their article they say:

A flat rocker for amazing glide and speed. A nose runner fin and large removable single fin at the tail for awesome tracking. Small deck area for weight savings. Industry leading 25PSI and RSS batten technology for the stiffest, most rigid and fastest board possible. Well, that’s the marketing speak over, let’s see how the board really goes.

Check out the article and see for yourself. Inflatable paddle boards are really making waves in the SUP industry. Easy to use, easy to store, tough as nails and just as fun!

Which inflatable SUP to buy?

If you’re asking yourself this question, congratulations, you’ve made a very good decision to become more active and have fun at the same time. Stand up paddle boarding, or SUP, has been booming the last couple of years thanks to it’s unique ability to bring together people from all backgrounds, to enjoy nature and keep people fit and happy.

Now, choosing which inflatable SUP to buy can be a little daunting at first. You’re new to the sport, not quite sure what to expect, how often you’ll paddle, etc. Never fear, everyone has the same questions.

So, it comes down to 4 factors:

  1. Your size and weight
  2. How you plan to use the board
  3. Transporting and storing the board
  4. And of course, price

Each factor is important but is variable in ‘importance’ for each buyer. Perhaps you live on the water’s edge and transportation and storage is not important. Perhaps you’re a gazillionaire and price is no object. Any way you slice it, a new board purchase is governed by the above 4 factors. Green Water Sports goes into more detail in their “Choosing a paddle board” article that you should read to understand each factor fully to make the right decision for you. See you on the water!

6 health benefits of paddle boarding

Let’s look at six reasons paddle boarding, or SUP, is such a healthy and balanced sport. The health benefits of paddle boarding are second to none. Green Water Sports, retailers of high end inflatable paddle boards like Red Paddle Co, featured an article recently about why paddle boarding is so good for us and included the six reasons.

An excerpt from the article:

Paddle boarding is a great all over body workout. Head to toe, every muscle is engaged in balancing on the board or during the paddle stroke with the bulk of the effort being done by the body’s ‘core’ muscles. As the name suggests, the core muscles are integral to the support and function of your whole body. A strong core is a strong body.
