And you can only get it at West Marine.
Don't have room in your apartment for a conventional rigid SUP? Looking for a way to enjoy traveling with your SUP without having to lug around a giant board (particularly on trains, buses and airplanes)? It's time you considered an inflatable stand-up paddleboard (iSUP). Featuring Lahui Kai Sport's innovative Poly Fusion Construction, the 11'6" Swell Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard is lighter than a rigid board, but amazingly durable and inflates in minutes. You'll find the Swell super stable and built for performance so that beginning and intermediate paddlers will find it easy to learn on. Completing the package is an included two-piece adjustable paddle, removable center fin, ankle leash, pump and backpack carrying bag. If you don't already own one, you'll want to order a life jacket (sold separately) so you'll be ready to hit the water right away.
Swell Inflatable SUPs feature Poly Fusion Construction (PFC), which adds the durability of a single layer of strengthened polymer sleeve over a core of drop stitched PVC. This is done at an early stage of construction to eliminate any errors that may occur when applying it by hand at a later stage. This technology allows for a reduction in weight of almost 5 pounds (about 15%) while simultaneously ensuring the board is stiffer at lower air pressure. Plus, the PFC process actually adds durability and removes the possibility of losing shape or warping. This new construction process allows the board to be inflated to a maximum 17-20psi (far more than other inflatables).
When deciding on an SUP, you'll want to choose a board with adequate volume. This can be the difference between gliding smoothly across the surface or spending your time fighting that very real sinking feeling! Proper volume is influenced by two key variables with an SUP: combined rider and cargo weight, plus skill level. At 280 liters of volume, the recommended weight limit for the 11'6" Swell iSUP is 245 pounds for those with a beginner or novice skill level. Experienced paddlers may find they can even exceed this recommended weight limit.
With its laid-back design and included removable center fin for consistent tracking, this iSUP makes a good choice for recreational cruising.
