6 Best Inflatable Paddle Boards 

Because of the epidemic, beautiful nature has been left out of the picture. But now, the epidemic is slowing down and we can return to nature again.

With the hot summer coming up, are you all ready to paddleboard to the beach and play in the water?

First of all, best inflatable paddle boards are not cheap, but they can last for years. Therefore, almost everyone wants a good quality paddleboard that meets their mental expectations. I also understand the feeling of wanting to take a paddleboard to the water right away but not being able to make up your mind to buy one in the face of the wide variety of products available. So, in order to meet the needs of paddlers who don't have a big budget or are not particularly demanding, I've selected six of the most outstanding paddleboards during this year's $600 period and analyzed the pros and cons to meet the needs of different people.

If your budget happens to be around $600, take a look.

To begin with, this is the comparison chart of the basic parameters of the six products.

1.Goosehill Rainbow R SCE-Reinforced All-Around Inflatable SUP Board

If I were to introduce paddleboards, I would have to say that among these paddleboards, Goosehill Rainbow R SCE-Reinforced All-Around Inflatable SUP Board is one of the most cost effective ones. However, no matter which way you compare it, this paddleboard performs very well. 

The most outstanding features of Goosehill Rainbow R is the application of SCE technology which can make the board rigid, able to withstand higher air pressure, and extremely durable. At the same time, Rainbow R uses the drop-stitch technology that provides a strong core. The result is an inflatable SUP board that’s stiff, durable.

In addition, Rainbow R is a great option for beginners as well as paddlers who seek portability, stability as well as durability in a paddle board. At 32’’ wide, even a rookie paddler can have a smooth ride on it without falling in.

If you are finding a board that is ease to transport, Rainbow R is one of the best choices. It is only 20.5 pounds and its volume is up to 440 pounds. It means it can support so many things on the board but can still keep balance.

2.Thurso Surf Waterwalker Inflatable Paddleboard

The Thurso Surf Waterwalker Inflatable Paddleboard is one of the board that make people run fast. 

The most outstanding feature of Thurso Surf Waterwalker is the exquisite design. I can’t imagine that these colors t can come together so beautiful. 

In other ways, Thurso Surf Waterwalker performs not bad. It uses the drop-stitch technology which makes it rigid and durable also.

The fly in the ointment is that it can only bear a small amount of weight. It generally supports 150lbs.

3.Gili 11’ Adventure 

As the name says, Gili Adventure 11’ is ready for anything. Whether is fishing, touring, yoga, or relaxed cruising paddle board, it can meet all of them.

Gili Adventure 11’ has large loading area and 18 D-rings. It is very nice that can place so many things like food, medicine and other things when you want to have a long paddle boarding trip.

If you are a fisherman, Gili Adventure 11’ must the best choice with the double brackets for rod holders or rack systems. The highlight of the fishermen’s prey catch will surely be recorded without reservation.

5.Glide Retro 10’6’’ Inflatable SUP Board

In terms of stability, Glide Retro 10’6 is not as good as iRocker. But in other aspects, it still performs very good and is enough for the paddle board beginners.

One features of Glide Retro that distinguishes it from other boards is the full-length deck pad which provides enough space for yoga and pilates. Therefore, if you are a yoga enthusiast, this one is the better choice.

With a single-fin system, the paddle board has no side fins that can’t try out different fin setups.


6.Bluefin Cruise Carbon 10’8’’

The Bluefin Cruise Carbon 10'8'' is versatile and stiff.

The addition of the "Air Duo" chamber in the center of the paddleboard increases the overall rigidity of the board and increases safety to a certain extent in case one of the two chambers is damaged on the water. 

However, there are two sides to everything. It is this advantage that makes this paddleboard weigh up to 35 pounds, making the transportation process more labor intensive and less suitable, especially for people who travel long distances.


At the end of the article, I would like to give you the suggestion that when picking a paddle board, the most important thing is not really the features or the brand, but what you really need for yourself. Only by understanding this can you purposefully and quickly choose the best paddleboard for you. The most important thing is to have fun yourself.
