Gear Talk / Inflatable SUP decisions
« on: May 12, 2013, 09:05:43 AM »
First post here and looking at getting an inflatable SUP. Found a few options locally and just wanted an opinion on which of these might be a good choice for my price range. New to SUP, only tried it once so far on a Surftech board that's about 10'6" 32" wide and 6" rail. I am 5'11" 195lbs and would mostly be paddling in flat water and some chop and probably not surfing waves as I rarely get out to the areas with them. Might also use to to paddle out and drop a crab trap at the start of my sessions.
Locally I've found these three models.
C4 Waterman 10'9 iSUP XXL
NRS Earl 6
NRS Czar 6
I haven't found much reviews on the NRS boards, but it looks comparable to the C4. Looking in the store I did notice the display C4 was missing a seam cover on the rail which concerns me a bit. Would it be worth giving up the 1' in length to use the 34" wide Czar for a bit more stability? and any other opinions on which one may be a good fit for me?
