Trying to decide on a decent Stand Up Paddle Boards to replace the two, old & very heavy rigid boards I sold last weekend has been fiendishly difficult. Much harder than choosing a camera and I agonize about which new camera to buy for months.
IF modular paddle boards were available it would be a cinch. I would get one without a minute’s hesitation. But, I just can’t source one.
I want a 11′ board. I am a reasonably proficient boarder. I don’t have tons of hours on a board, but, I am not a beginner either. I want a board that I can use both on lakes and in the ocean.
Transporting the board is the issue. It just won’t fit inside the vehicles we have. And I don’t fancy having a 11′ board strapped to the roof of our SUV on long trips.
So, it appears I must get an inflatable and ‘experts’ swear that good, new inflatables are nearly as rigid, when inflated to 15psi, as a epoxy board.
Now, I am torn between the Atoll and the iRocker. They both have their fans.
And, it gets worse. What color? Green or sand?
I will keep you posted. Wish me luck.
