Why Is It That I Can’t Buy A Modular Or Foldable Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP)?

We have had two Coleman Banshee Stand Up Paddle Boards since c. 2010. I used to use them quite often. But, over the last 2 years I have been using them less and less. They are heavy and lugging them to the beach was never fun.

The last few days I have been musing about getting an inflatable paddle board. So, today, on a whim, I listed the two boards we have on Facebook and Craigslist — at $200/each, $375 for both. They sold, as a pair, pretty quickly. We also sold, today, quite quickly too, a paddle boat that we rarely, if ever, use.

So, now I started researching INFLATABLE stand up paddle boats. That it takes ~10 minutes to inflate, even with an electric pump, doesn’t sit well with I. Plus, with MY LUCK, the danger of punctures.

So, I got thinking foldable or modular boards. I even had a design in my head — three sections, with rods connecting them. So, I Googled. Bingo, they are supposed to be there — BUT THEY ARE NOT AVAILABLE!

I assume they all ran into problems, which would tell its own story. Very frustrating. A modular would be just what I want.

If you know where I can get one, PLEASE let me know.

Hotstar Coverage Of Cricket World Cup Is TOTAL GARBAGE — Willow TV Is 1,000% Better.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and study.

Hotstar has NO IDEA
about covering cricket.

Do not even TRY to watch the World Cup on it
unless you are Indian or are Intellectually challenged.

For a start they BROADCAST the final scores all over the place! So, before you get to watch a match — or highlights — you know the results. What is FUN?

Hotstar is a social media company. NOT equipped to cover cricket.

I have said this before, I will say it AGAIN.

Do not part with ANY money to Hotstar for the World Cup. It will be a rip-off.

The World Cup is available, in the U.S., on Willow TV. Now that is a proper and dedicated cricket company.

Go with Willow. Give Hotstar the finger.

Oh, and Hotstar is crooked, duplicitous and dishonest.
