Several tricks to correctly play with the stand up inflatable paddle board. You can store your SUP deflated or inflated, whichever suits your space. When deciding on inflatable SUP storage another factor to think about is whether you’ll store it inflated or deflated. Either way is fine as long as it’s clean, dry, and in the right temperature range. Inflatables pack down into a SUP backpack or bag so that they’re convenient to store just about anywhere, even in a closet or on a shelf in your apartment. That said, if you have space, storing your board inflated can make it easier to take out on the water regularly.
The first thing most people will ask when it’s time to buy an inflatable SUP, is what is the difference between an inflatable SUP and a hardboard? Hardboards are made from carbon fibre, fibreglass or polyurethane. They are hard, slightly heavier than the average inflatable SUP and generally more expensive too. They are more difficult to transport, as most require roof racks or a truck to transport. They can be faster through the water due to their stiffness, but this is something that is changing fast with the new generation of inflatable SUP. Hardboards will need a cover, especially when you are travelling, as they can be damaged.
Leg muscles. These are used when you balance and as the SUP is continually moving, your legs are continually working to maintain your balance. You may feel stiff when you first start out on your SUP, but it won’t take long for your leg muscles to get stronger. Arms and shoulder muscles. You use your arms and shoulder for paddling, and for many other smaller activities on and around the board, such as carrying it down to the water. At first you may feel pain in the shoulders when you paddle as your muscles will not be used to this type of activity. As you spend more time on the water, you’ll notice your arms and shoulders have more power in them.

Another inflatable stand up paddle board tip: Use a leash: This actually goes for all stand up paddle boarders but the sooner you are aware how vital a leash is in any kind of condition the safer you and everyone else will be when you are paddling. There are different types of leashes and different types of attachment points depending on what style of paddling you are doing, so be sure to check out these two articles: “Which leash is right for me?” and “Why do I need a leash on a SUP?”
