Inflatable paddle boards are a great solution for those who lack the space or transportation capacity to store a massive 12-foot board. The downside? They usually go soft after a little time on the water and are far slower than their wooden and poly brethren .
The new 12’ x 6” BIC SUP Air Touring model changes all that. When inflated to just 15 psi (took us exactly 6 minutes to pump it up) the board paddles just as well as a traditional board. It offers a smooth, quick ride, and also includes an optional fin.
