I Love SUP inflatable paddle boards #ilovesupuk are available in the UK from www.surfs-sup.co.uk

They’re more like a piece of artwork than a bog standard, lifeless blow up and we’re loving how they feel too.

Something you notice very quickly is the quality feel to the boards.  Not flimsy and bendy, but solid and firm underfoot, so paddling them is not a problem.

Performance like many of the better inflatables is right up there with a nice turn of speed from the 12’6, but most impressive was the 11’6 as it’s so versatile.

Surfing any inflatable stand up paddleboard requires a bit of tweaking whilst you get used to the more stuck feel on a wave so don’t try and compare to a proper surf sup board.   The 10’6 and 10’0 certainly lend themselves more to sup surfing than the bigger boards, but saying that the 12’6 was fun on a light wind downwind paddle.
