Jimmy Styks Paddle Boards

Since coming onto the SUP scene in 2009, Jimmy Styks has become a popular choice for adventure seekers. With a diverse range of both inflatable SUPs and rigid boards, Jimmy Styks has built a brand that appeals to a wide range of paddlers.

The 2018 Jimmy Styks inflatable paddle board line consists of five models, ranging in size from 10’4″ to 14′ in length. They also have two inflatable surfboards in their lineup, a 6′ shortboard and an 8′ longboard.

All Jimmy Styks inflatable SUPs are backed by a 365-day warranty which covers manufacturing defects. Their 2018 boards also come bundled with everything you need to start paddling — in the box is a nice travel backpack, 3-piece adjustable SUP paddle (either aluminum or carbon fiber), coiled leash, dual-action pump, and iSUP repair kit.

Major Improvements for 2018

Jimmy Styks Inflatable SUPs

This season, the Jimmy Styks brand has been relaunched with a reworked logo and a completely new lineup of inflatable paddle boards. Last year, the company offered just one iSUP model (the 11′ Drifter) which was sold at Costco. The entry level Jimmy Styks Drifter model has been discontinued and the higher-end 2018 line will not be sold through Costco.

In addition to their new range of inflatable SUPs for the 2018 season, Jimmy Styks has also made big changes to their SUP accessory bundle. The company is now including an upgraded SUP backpack, brand new patented fin system (it’s called Click ‘N Go — no tools required), improved pump, coiled SUP leash, brand new 3-piece travel paddle.
