Have previously used a inflatable Red and it was great, however this one is going to be at the mercy of my children so just want a lightweight SUP that they can use. Flexible on size and anything from 8-12'. I just can't seem to find any out there. Any tips?

Note I am outside of a regional city so have limited access to some stores so may have to be posted.

A couple I have found:
$690 ridethetide.com.au/10-ft-6-seafoam-sup-package/?sku=106SF&gclid=Cj0KCQjwlK7cBRCnARIsAJiE3MiFfp91VXt2cTdhKAnzdeGiMF-Y6Qdh-aFa8oYix2gGXzjKeMnGQ70aArMwEALw_wcB

$380 but no paddle. Any cheap paddles out there? www.ebay.com.au/itm/Stand-Up-Paddle-Board-Soft-SUP-Soft-top-stand-up-paddle-board-soft-top-SUP/282885533692?hash=item41dd4aaffc:m:mPPC16YT-OazEDaVS3ASxqQ


I can see a lot of cheaper ones that are inflatable but I can imagine these are not the greatest. Would prefer something more solid that we don't have to pump up every week.

I keep seeing these at Anaconda...:
www.anacondastores.com/sports/beach-surf/paddle-boards


And this mob keep sending me emails and one day I noticed this:
www.4wdsupacentre.com.au/products/accessories/adventure-kings-inflatable-stand-up-paddle-board.html

If it's for your kids I don't reckon you can go wrong with trying one of them - especially at that price...




Can't vouch for the quality on either of these by the way

Will check out Anaconda and see what they have. Hopefully something good there.

4wd one is an inflatable that we are not so keen on. Don't like the idea of having to pump it up every second week.

The Anaconda ones are like giant bodyboards - so beware of leaving them in the sun!!!

If you're after something indestructible then keep an eye out for 2nd hand BIC's, they're not massively light mind, but about as tough as SUPs come...

Try wavestorm. Our pharmacy sells their surfboards. Crazy cheep. If your kids are small could even use one of their surfboards. They do sell SUPs.

Just my tip ! Plenty 2nd hand packages around get em on something real if you think a soft board will protect them then they probs not ready for the water! If the goin gets tuff out there they need something that paddles and bites the water not a bubble !

Sorry Wat,

The pharmacy would be a long way to go........west coast Canada.
Even the 8' classic would have lots of float for small children.
