7 Reasons Traveling with an Inflatable Paddle Board Makes Sense
Traveling with an Inflatable SUP Board
Flat, car and foot paddle boards move faster than rough paddles.
- Touring Expeditions
- Family Fun
- Inflatable SUP boards fly as baggage check
Inflatable paddle boards will travel as baggage for check-in. This is an immense benefit over hard paddle boards that require additional airline costs.
Inflatable boards roll into a pocket. These bags are designed to transport all of your super gear, the rolling board, the air pump and the paddle. (The 3-piece paddles break down.)
Depending on the board, the paddle board, air compressor, paddle and bag weight is from 25lbs to 50lbs.
- Inflatable SUP bags are provided with wheels
Each paddle board is inflatable and comes with a carrying bag. Most of these have shoulder straps for backpack.
The better quality bags are made with wheels. This works well when you pass through city and airports.
These top bags are valid bags for travel. Red Paddle Co makes one of the best super bags for travel.
- Flatable paddle boards are tough to the airport and robust to fly
Although hard paddle boards can be easily dressed and scratched, inflables are rugged and sturdy. They consist of several layers of military pvc.
You don’t have to worry about your board being scratched when you are riding in a carry bag.
- Compact and quick to store inflatable paddle boards
Flatables take up no storage space. They fit in the closet of a hotel room. Small mobile and off the road.
- Flexible SUP boards fit into the back of a charter vehicle
A taxi or rental car is fitted with an inflatable. You don’t have to hire a car with special roof racks. You don’t have to strap it all off. Don’t worry, don’t haze.
- Inflatable paddle boards roll in a bag
Your starting points are limited with a hard paddle board. Paddle boards fold up in a backpack. You don’t have to walk a mile to hit the bath. When you fly, you always have to make the most of your place and hold the inflatables open.
