In the past few years, we have seen an explosion of paddle board rowers taking to their local lakes to enjoy the weather and escape the quarantines of Covid. Clearly, paddle boarding is a newer recreational sport that has given active people yet another reason to enjoy the outdoors. Paddle boarding requires quite a bit of balance and practice, but can be quickly mastered with the right equipment and instruction. Before anyone is allowed to paddle board alone, laws require that they take an in-depth safety course. Once they try it once, several boarders find themselves investing in their very own paddle boards.
This video details the pros and cons of inflatable paddle boards versus hard paddle boards.
A paddleboard is often an expensive investment, so it is important that you make the right choice before jumping right into your purchase. Inflatable boards are incredibly convenient, since they deflate into a handy backpack that can be easily transported. Hard boards, however, need to be stored in a large space. Hard boards also need to be transported on the tops of large vehicles. If you have a smaller car, then an inflatable board would be the best choice for you.
