I bought these new from Uli about 10 yrs ago. Probably shelled out over $3,500 for everything. If you were here back then, then you know Uli was the pioneer of inflatable SUPs, and their boards were built very well and used very high PSI compared to other inflatables. This made for a very rigid and superior board compared to its competition. I absolutely loved these and took them on several family vacations to Florida and Catalina in addition to paddling around off PVE. Kids have grown now and I need the space, so….

I have a 10-footer and an 11-footer, both the Steamroller models. They have always been stored inflated and in my garage except for when I used them. They roll up and travel well…I’ve taken them to Florida and also Catalina several times. Super buoyant, each will carry an adult and a child and that’s how we rolled quite a few times thru the mangroves of SW Florida.

Condition is used with some scuffs, but no holes, tears, or leaks. However, the 10-footer DOES HAVE what appears to be second-layer delamination that shows itself as several large bubbles on the bottom, after I loaned it out and the person left it in the sun that day. I have looked in to repairing this but don’t want to undertake it myself. There is a web page out there that goes over how to repair the delam by injecting adhesive in the bubble at one end and working it through to the other end but I just don’t have the time nor space to tackle this. I assume that without repair the delam will only get worse on that board, and of course there is no guarantee that repairing won’t prevent further delam.

Located in Los Angeles area (if you know anyone in the area who can fix the delam please let me know).

Price includes:
Two ULI Steamroller SUPs (10-fotter and 11-footer).
A couple of manual air pumps
Two long leashes
Two large, wheeled duffle bags to store and transport them in when traveling/flying.
I think there's patch kits for the boards, too.

SUP General / Did Uli Boards go out of business?

Need my Uli board repaired.
No one answers the phone there and it just hangs up after is says to leave a message, so one can't leave a message...nice!  ::).
Their web sight is dark as well as their social media activity.

Doesn't look good for me! Anyone know for sure, and any advice on where to go next to get one of their product supported?

Bought this from Jill45 quite a few yrs ago. It's been up in my garage the past few yrs as I've been using my Uli the few times I've been getting wet.

Carbon fiber SUP board. Great all around board, fast and very stable at 30.5” wide, versus the typical rocky 27.5” wide race board. 254 liters. Domed nose with water-cutting bow and flat-angled deck disperses chop and releases water for maximum speed. In good overall condition, a few nicks but no leaks or patches. Storage net on deck. Very light weight board and easy to handle! Has always been stored in garage. Located in South Torrance/S Redondo area.

SoCal / Tarsan II on Harbor Drive at King Harbor

Where'd they go?!  ???  About a month ago they just completed an awesome tenant improvement build-out at the old marina hardware store and had a killer little rental operation going, fueled I'm sure by the awesome weather we've been having. I was really stoked for them. Looked like they really hit the nail right on the head there.

Then today when I drove by, I noticed they appeared closed down, not even a month later.

Did they get screwed by The Man and his bureaucracy?  I know they still have their operation on Hermosa Ave in Hermosa Beach a few blocks north of there.

Gear Talk / Any tried and true electric inflators out there for ULI's?
« on: April 16, 2012, 08:03:26 PM »
I tried the Sea Eagle Electric Turbo Pump with Battery, but the valve adapter they provide wasn't compatible with the ULI valve. That was unfortunate as it seemed like a good product with both a turbine and a piston-pump, allowing it to reach higher pressures than the other electric pumps out there.  I wasn't a fan of the battery, though. Wish the thing just plugged into a 110V outlet.

Unfortunately I fried my right elbow inflating my two ULI's on our family  summer vacation last year. Still dealing with it and it appears that manual inflation is going to be out for good for me  :(

SUP General / Advice for SUPing in SW Florida?
« on: June 08, 2011, 09:51:59 PM »
Been going there for years, but this time I'm bringing a couple Uli's to enjoy with the family.  I've never had any problems with Things That Eat People in the past, but then again I haven't been out poking around in the rivermouths and mangroves on a SUP, an inflatable one at that.  I imagine most of our paddling will be up and down the north end of Bonita Beach, up towards Lover's Key, and maybe parts of Estero Bay by Hickory Island.  I perused Google Earth and noticed a couple of alligator photos  ??? . The one by Estero river mouth wasn't as surprising as the one in the middle of Lover's Key.  Thanks in advacne for any advice or input suggested.

Gear Talk / Recommendations for 3-piece travel paddle?
« on: June 03, 2011, 08:51:54 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I'm looking to buy two 3-piece travel  paddles to use/transport w/Uli Boards.  Seems the Werner Nitro CF is a top choice, but I'll be paddling with kids, close to shore, exploring/touring, probably hitting and pushing off of rocks occasionally, etc.  Will Werner's "bomber durability" hold up to that? Primary use in So Cal and SW Florida.  Any recommendations? Thanks in advance for any advice offered!
