Comparing Inflatabe Vs Epoxy Stand Up Paddle Boards
Comparing Inflatable vs Epoxy Stand Up Paddle Boards
Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) combines the best of kayaking and surfing, offering you the option to cruise in calm lagoon waters or charge waves in the open ocean.
Apart from knowing the various types of SUP available, it's also important to know the difference between an epoxy paddle board or an inflatable SUP.
Inflatable - These are great for beginners and first-time paddlers. Inflatables works well in all types of water conditions. These are easy to transport and require less storage and are very durable. Inflatable SUPs require that you pump the board to the suggested PSI. They're just as rigid as the epoxy SUP since they are constructed with layers of military-grade PVC.
Epoxy SUP - Serious paddlers looking for increased speed, glide and maneuverability, will prefer an epoxy board. These are ideal for those looking to do SUP surfing or racing. Epoxy boards are agile and have excellent glide, thus making it easier to catch waves and offer optimal performance in various water conditions.
