Stand up paddle board
Padblord (board with a paddle for SUP surfing) is quite large. The minimum size is 9.4 feet. This size has become a barrier to the spread of this sport around the world, because such a board is very difficult to transport, if not impossible. The situation changed several years ago with the invention of inflatable boards for SUP surfing.

Backpack for SUP board
When I say to someone that an inflatable board many believe that it is soft, like an air mattress or boat. This is not true. Visually and by touch it is impossible to distinguish an inflatable board from a wooden or composite one. The inflatable SUP board is made of high-strength composite materials, inflated by a powerful pump, so that it feels more like a car tire. When we first skated on the board, we did not know that it was inflatable and then were very surprised by this fact.
Another fear of buyers of inflatable boards is due to the fact that the inflatable surfboard can be pierced or torn. It is possible, but again it is not so simple, a comparison with car tires, probably, will come in handy again to describe how difficult it is to break it. Simply put, the chance to pierce an inflatable surfboard is the same as breaking a wooden or composite board.
