One of the best things that inflatable stand up paddle boards can provide us with is the quality time you get spend with family and friends using them. An inflatable SUP is made to be practical and easy to transport in order for everyone to comfortably use it anywhere.
The RAVE Sports is here with their Outback inflatable paddle board which comes in a combination of 3 colors to fit the water spirit (blue/black/white) and which also comes in an all-inclusive package with all the necessary items to handle an inflatable SUP board.
The Outback is 10.8 feet tall, 30 inches wide and 4 inches thick; it’s a great size whether for female or male paddlers as it’s also really good for taking a little companion on board with you unless if you weight something over 200 lbs because that’s the board’s weight capacity.
The Outback is made of highly durable drop-stitch PVC fabric construction and it is designed to simulate a traditional surf-style board. It’s ideal for beginners who want maneuverability and stability for recreational paddling, yoga workouts or even touring as it is best for calm water and rocky shorelines.
You’ll find that the Outback’s back is covered with an EVA foam pad which is quite appealing compared to other SUPs; it covers more than two thirds of its back and it is designed in a way to look more like a skin to the board than just a pad.
Add to that the fact that it’s made of soft materials to keep your feet comfortable and help you stay balanced on top of the board by preventing your feet from skidding off.
Also, in the middle of the board you’ll find a carry handle which makes carrying the inflated board around an easy mission because it’s well-made and strong.
Additionally, a hand pressure pump is included so you can carry it with you anywhere and inflate your board under any circumstances. Once the Outback is fully inflated, you’ll notice the stiffness of its five drop-stich layers and PVC materials. It’s a rigid board which will let you experience a great deal of strength in its performance as well as balance and sturdiness.
Further, this board is featured with its own paddle which is a good thing since you won’t have to separately look for one; it’s a 3 piece adjustable paddle so you can find the perfect size for your stroke, as it is designed with a T head shape for a firm grip and maximum control.
Moreover, the Outback’s design took into consideration the water tracking matter and put 3 removable fins to make water cruising smoother and swifter than ever. Beside that; the fact that they are removable adds up to the portability of the board because once you detach them you can easily roll up the deflated board.
Furthermore, which is really cool; this board is featured with 4 rings which you can use to tie a bungee cord to them; it comes really handy when you need to carry something on board with you especially for long time or distance rides.
Finally, the RAVE Sports did not forget to include a back pack for the Outback as to maximize transportation points; it’s big enough to carry the deflated rolled up SUP, and the broken down paddle along with the pump. It couldn’t get any easier with all of these features and facilitations or better with a warranty for a whole year.
