After three years playing around with various brands of SUPs I want to share my favorite with you. It’s the Sea Eagle NeedleNose. I especially want to let you know that through June 30, 2016 they are having a really good sale on not just their NeedleNose model, but all of their SUPs, canoes, kayaks to tour the ocean on, boats, surfboards, and everything. For example, the hybrid touring-surf SUP with kayak package is $849.
That is a really really good deal and I hope you don’t miss it. If you want an inflatable for paddleboard touring, surfing, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, or rowing, or a pontoon boat or a motor mount boat (a perfect “tender” for your sailboat or trawler), just click here.
All kinds of inflatable boats are on sale through July 30
Sea Eagle also makes inflatable motor mount boats, pontoon boats, adventure kayaks, canoes, and even a boogie board. Check them out!
Carry them anywhere
Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboards (SUPs) roll up into backpacks and in just a few minutes you can pump them up and be in the water. They come in a number of styles including surfboards, touring, racing, and fishing, and even kayak conversion kits with inflatable seat and kayak paddle.
You can strap an SUP on your motorcycle, throw a boat in the trunk of your car, check any of these things as luggage at the airport, and carry them to the shore in a backpack or carry case. Here’s a video tutorial on how they inflate and pack back up.
A unique 3-month risk-free trial period
Best of all is the three-month risk-free trial period. That means you can try it for three months and give it back if you don’t like it for any reason. I think you will. (I did!) It’s great to have a three-year warranty, too. And right now there’s free shipping in addition to the summer sale just through June 30th.
I’m starting to think about learning to surf at Scorpion Bay across the peninsula from Mulege where I live, so I may get the hybrid SUP. I definitely want to start on a big, stable SUP so that I have the option to paddle around if I get tired of surfing. And I love that I will be able to carry it, along with camping gear, in the sidecar when I ride over there. (I just got another Ural sidecar motorcycle, so I’m ready!)
SUP Fishing and Rowing
A swivel seat fishing rig and rowing package are also available on both the NeedleNose and the hybrid SUP.
Sea Eagle is an old east-coast company with reasonably priced products that come with a six-month risk-free trial offer and a three-year warranty.
Really Versatile Kits and Accessories
All their boats can be customized with seats for kayaking or fishing, even rowing. There’s even a boat where one person can row and the other can kayak! There are high fishing seats, aluminum seats, even a swivel seat.
Here’s what I’ve got on mine
Note that the paddles just slip in alongside the seat, so you can stand up or sit down, and switch out the paddles.
I’ve enjoyed mine for 3 years!
I’ve had my SUP for three years now and enjoyed every minute of exploring San Diego and Baja. I really hope you take advantage of the sale.
A lot of people have told me they’d like to paddleboard, but they’re afraid it’s too hard. If you can stand on one foot, you can paddleboard! And I mean really, what’s going to happen besides falling in? 🙂
Want to ease into it? Get the kayak additions that I have, and practice when the water’s calm. Your feet go on each side of the seat.
Let me know what you get!
I’m excited about getting my SUP surfboard to try surfing here in San Diego and over in Scorpion Bay in Baja. Please let me know if you get any of these inflatables. Maybe I’ll see you on the water!
