Solstice Bali Review: Inflatable SUP Overview
The deck of the Solstice Bali features a nice EVA foam traction pad which provides good grip, and there are four stainless steel D-rings located at the board’s nose. We would have liked to see a bungee cord included with the D-rings for securing gear, but that’s easy to add on your own.
At the rear of the board, there is another stainless steel D-ring which can be used for towing or attaching a SUP leash.
Also, there is a convenient grab handle located at the center of the board which makes the Bali super easy to carry when fully inflated.
On the flip side, the Solstice Bali features the popular 2+1 fin configuration. The large center fin is removable, while the two smaller side fins are fixed.
The recommended inflation pressure for the Solstice Bali is 12-15 PSI, and we definitely suggest inflating it to the full 15 PSI for extra stiffness.

Included Solstice SUP Accessories
We would have liked to see an adjustable aluminum paddle included, but given the low price of the Bali, it’s understandable that it wasn’t included.
Can I bring my dog on the Solstice Bali?
Absolutely! The heavy duty outer skin material is nearly indestructible and won’t be damaged by your dog’s nails. Please remember that anytime you’re bringing your dog along for a paddle, it’s very important to use a dog life vest.
Is this a good board for paddling on a lake?
Yes, the Bali would make a great lake cruiser.
What’s the best way to clean the Solstice Bali SUP?
Rinse the board off with fresh water after each use, and then make sure it’s completely dry before packing it up. Other than that, you can hit it with some mild soap and water if you need some additional cleaning power.
Additional Solstice Bali Pictures
We like the SUP accessories that come with the Bali — the only thing that you’ll really need to pick up is a SUP paddle and a leash. The backpack is super convenient for toting the board around, and the mesh design means that moisture won’t get trapped inside the bag.
If you’re in the market for a cheap inflatable paddle board, the Solstice Bali 10’8″ is definitely one to consider.
