Great forum here...thanks for the patience in the coming noob question.

I currently have a Riveria board that I like but wanted an inflatable I could toss on my boat that wouldn't cause damage as we blasted along.  At the boat show picked up a Solstice Bora Bora 12' inflatable for the family and although its OK for the family and to get some paddling in I am looking for something better.  I am a few years into SUP, not advanced but find myself more and more on the water...Just feel I need something better then the Bora Bora for my inflatable option.  I do not want to go longer then a 12+ as where I keep it on my boat that's the max size I can go... Thanks for any help and options.
Red about the Red Paddle Explorer 13'2"  but too long... and also anyone have any thoughts on the Isle Touring 12'6?

Thanks all...

Good to see you take along your best bud on a nice leisurely flat water paddle. Your bud looks like he enjoys it too. Hope you find the info you need for your next inflatable sup.

BTW, thanks for shooting the video and taking the time and effort to share it here on the Zone.

These are top of the line and worth it. I used to keep mine inflated year round on the side of my house. They are near to indestuctable. They're made right down the road in Vista. You can talk to Jim the owner directly. He could put some extra pad up front for your buddy. They might even have a used demo? https://www.uliboards.com/product/126-touring
It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I rarely use.
