Welcome to Inflatable Boarder!Inflatableboarder.com is an independent review website dedicated to helping each reader find the best inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard, accessories and other related watersports equipment for them. We love being outdoors and sharing that experience with others. Here you’ll find our honest opinions on equipment that we use ourselves. While we are reader-supported and may earn a commission on products bought through our website, we do not allow brands to buy reviews or rankings on our site. We do the testing so you can do the paddling without worrying about whether or not you got the best option for you. Our team loves to dig into the details and demystify the marketing slang used by paddlesports companies (in fact, this is the only sentence on our site you’ll find the words “bombproof” or “military grade”). No matter your needs, we want to help find the right SUP, paddle, pump, or other accessory for you. Have a question? Use the contact us form below. We’d love to help!
Our head writer, Mike Carney, is an American Canoe Association SUP (and kayak) instructor and has been a paddling guide since 2016. Mike began paddling while in Boy Scouts and after several years focusing on climbing and biking, he returned to that first love of paddling. He co-founded a SUP outfitter and guide service, volunteers with local paddling clubs and paddling non-profits, and is the head organizer for his local SUP Meetup group. When not out testing for Inflatable Boarder, Mike enjoys journey paddling with his wife and dog, flatwater racing, and whitewater SUP and river surfing for a bit of adrenaline. As if he doesn’t get enough SUP from all of that, he also likes to make his own SUP paddles in his spare time. He even took his wedding photos on a paddle board!
Whatever your experience level, budget, or paddling interests may be, we’re here to help you find the best inflatable SUP that’s best for you. So if you’re a beginner and need additional assistance — or simply have a question that we didn’t answer in the review — feel free to drop us a line! We’re always quick to respond and are more than happy to help you find the best board for you.
