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 become extremely passionate about inflatables due to the incredible convenience and portability of iSUPs.
Currently, the 2019 NIXY SUP line consists of five models ranging in size from 9’6″ to 12’6″. All NIXY inflatable paddle boards are backed by a 2-year warranty, 30-day money back guarantee, and include a premium quality SUP backpack, dual-chamber triple-action pump, leash, adjustable travel paddle, and repair kit.

NIXY SUP Reviews (2019)
An exciting new addition to the company’s 2019 iSUP line is the NIXY Huntington. This ultra-compact inflatable paddle board is a total game-changer as it weighs in at only 17 pounds and packs down into about half the size of regular inflatable SUPs.
The ultimate platform for adventure travel, the Huntington measures 9’6″ x 32″ x 6″ and comes with a compact carrying bag, 4-piece paddle, powerful dual-chamber pump, and leash. Featuring a removable twin fin setup and offset hardware, the Huntington folds down the middle and then rolls up into an unbelievably small footprint for unparalleled packability. If you’re looking for a lightweight, super portable board that you can literally bring anywhere, the new NIXY Huntington is our top pick this season. Click here to read our full review.
A fun all-around inflatable paddle board, NIXY’s Newport measures 10’6″ x 33″ x 6″ and it weighs in at a lightweight 20 pounds. SUP fitness, fishing, flat water paddling, whitewater, paddling around with your kiddos and pup — the 2019 NIXY Newport can do it all.
The Newport has been completely redesigned this season with several new premium features that we love. Featuring front and rear bungee storage areas, grab handles at the nose and tail, a rail mounted paddle holder, and comfortable new logo stamped deck pad, the Newport packs a ton of value.

NIXY Newport Palm
An alternate version of the regular Newport model, the new NIXY Newport Palm is a stunning inflatable paddle board that really turns heads. We really feel that the tropical green foliage graphic looks amazing when paired with the white board and brown traction pad, and think this model will be a popular choice this season.
The Newport Palm offers excellent stability and the versatile design delivers great performance in a variety of conditions. A board that can pretty much do it all, this model is a great choice for paddlers of all skill levels who enjoy a variety of paddling activities.
If you’re looking for an extremely lightweight inflatable SUP that’s well-constructed and comes with a great warranty, the new Newport Palm definitely deserves to be on your radar.
A super stable platform that is designed primarily for SUP fitness and beginners, the NIXY Venice measures 10’6″ x 34″ x 6″ and it’s capable of supporting a maximum weight of 300 pounds. Like NIXY’s other inflatables, the Venice is very lightweight and incredibly easy to carry around.
Available in four attractive colors (aqua, blue, purple, and red), the Venice features a tri-fin configuration, dual bungee storage areas, D-rings for securing gear or NIXY’s optional kayak seat attachment, front and rear grab handles, and a convenient paddle holder along the rail.

A touring board designed for performance and maximum speed, the NIXY Manhattan is a fast board that’s ideal for cruising lakes and paddling longer distances. Featuring NIXY’s lightweight dual-layer fusion construction, the Manhattan weighs in at only 22 pounds and it’s capable of supporting up to 300 pounds of weight.
This season, the Manhattan has been nicely upgraded into a much more feature-rich touring SUP. The dual-bungee storage areas give you plenty of onboard cargo capacity for your gear and the front and rear grab handles make it really easy to handle the board around the water.
If you’re looking for a fast paddling board that is super affordable and constructed with the latest technology, this is a great choice. Check out our full NIXY Manhattan review for more info.
