An exciting new SUP company that’s wasted no time in launching an impressive lineup of inflatable paddle boards, UK-based Bluefin SUP is making a name for itself in the paddleboarding industry by offering high-quality iSUPs at extremely affordable price points. Bluefin SUP’s inflatables are some of the stiffest on the market, include a value-packed accessory bundle, and are backed by the best warranty available today.
Bluefin SUP is a friendly, family-owned business with a passionate staff that is dedicated to producing premium inflatable paddle boards at a price point that anyone can afford. While Bluefin’s boards have already enjoyed a great deal of popularity in the UK, the company is now starting to focus on expanding its presence in both the United States and Canada.
All Bluefin inflatable paddle boards come with a nice bundle of SUP accessories and an incredibly generous 5-year warranty. Needless to say, this young company is making a bold statement about the quality of their iSUPs by offering a warranty that extends far beyond the typical 1 to 3 years that you usually hear about in our inflatable SUP reviews.

Bluefin SUP Reviews
Bluefin SUP Cruise (10'8", 12', 15')
The Bluefin Cruise lineup consists of the company’s entry-level models. Available in 10’8″, 12′, and 15′, the affordable Bluefin SUP Cruise boards are extremely versatile and loaded with premium features.
Constructed from 1000 Denier PVC and featuring a high-quality drop-stitch core, the Bluefin Cruise SUPs are incredibly durable, stable, and capable of being inflated all the way to 28 PSI.
All three models include a high-pressure hand pump, fiberglass travel paddle, backpack, leash, kayak seat, kayak blade attachment, and repair kit.
Bluefin SUP Cruise Carbon (10'8", 12', 15')
The company’s premium line of all-around iSUPs, the Bluefin SUP Cruise Carbon boards feature dual-air chambers and FRS carbon composite rail reinforcements for the ultimate in inflatable SUP stiffness. In addition to the boost in rigidity and performance, Bluefin’s Cruise Carbon iSUPs also offer an additional layer of safety, thanks to the twin inflation chambers. In the unlikely event that your board develops a leak while on the water, the second chamber will keep you afloat and allow you to make it safely back to shore.
All Bluefin Cruise Carbon paddle boards include a lightweight carbon fiber travel paddle, dual-action pump, leash, repair kit, kayak seat, and kayak blade attachment.

Bluefin SUP Cruise Junior
An ideal board for the kiddos, the 8′ Bluefin Cruise Junior is loaded with the same great features and accessories as the company’s popular full-sized boards. This versatile youth SUP provides outstanding durability and provides a stable, confidence-inspiring platform for younger paddlers.
Included with Bluefin’s Cruise Jr. is a dual-action SUP pump, travel backpack, 3-piece fiberglass paddle, ankle leash, iSUP repair kit, kayak blade attachment, and adjustable kayak seat.
Bluefin SUP Voyage
For paddlers in search of the ultimate in stability, the Bluefin SUP Voyage is definitely a board worth checking out. Featuring a triple-chamber design and wide 38″ profile, the Voyage is a good choice for activities such as SUP fishing and on-the-water fitness workouts (although serious SUP fitness enthusiasts will probably find the deck-mounted rod holders to be uncomfortable).
The Bluefin SUP Voyage includes a dual-action iSUP pump, 3-piece adjustable fiberglass paddle, two fishing rod holders, leash, travel bag, and inflatable SUP repair kit.
Bluefin SUP Sprint
The Bluefin Sprint is a performance-oriented inflatable SUP that can be used for everything from touring to racing. Measuring 14′ x 30″ x 6″ and weighing in at 29 pounds, the Sprint is loaded with plenty of D-rings and dual-bungee storage areas for bringing along extra gear.
The Bluefin SUP Sprint is ideal for the padder who appreciates the quality construction and affordable pricing of the company’s Cruise series, but who is willing to sacrifice all-around versatility for added speed.
Bluefin SUP Mammoth
The Bluefin Mammoth is a massively large SUP that’s perfect for days on the water with family and friends. This 18′ big SUP can handle up to 10 paddlers and the 60″ wide design provides plenty of stability.
While Bluefin ships the Mammoth with a dual-action pump, leash, repair kit, and carrying bag, we’d love to see a second pump added to the bundle along with some paddles. Perhaps this is something that the company will consider adding in the future and it would definitely make this large iSUP a more compelling buy for those in search of group fun.
