Headquartered in Irvine, CA, NIXY is a company that is focused entirely on designing and manufacturing inflatable paddle boards. Unlike many other brands that offer both hard boards and iSUPs, NIXY specializes in inflatable SUPs and continually strives to improve their lineup with new features and improved construction technologies.
Avid travelers with a strong background in design and engineering, NIXY founders Nicolas and Ale Szczedrin are working to build a SUP company that’s known for top-shelf build quality and affordable price points. This husband and wife team fell in love with the sport of paddleboarding several years ago, and they’ve became extremely passionate about inflatables due to the incredible convenience and portability of iSUPs.
Currently, the NIXY SUP line consists of four models ranging in size from 8’5″ to 12’6″. All NIXY inflatable paddle boards are backed by a 2-year warranty and include a SUP backpack, dual-action pump, leash, 3-piece travel paddle, and repair kit.
