This really is the pinnacle of fishing paddle boards, plus it's inflatable! We would like to think that we have thought of pretty much everything in designing this board specifically for fishing. You can stand up paddle in choppy conditions due to its 44" width, however this width also serves well when reeling in a big catch. The comfortable seat is ideal for pedaling the removable propeller and if you want to go fast you can pedal and kayak paddle. If you are fighting something big on the end of the line you may backpedal while you real it in. Sitting down is certainly the way to go while you wait for a bite, but it's also ideal to sit and pedal if you are traveling through mangrove tunnels or other tight areas. Two rod holders means you can stay busy and you can keep your fish, beer and water on ice in our top of the line rotomolded 15L cooler! Other convenient features include a rudder to steer the ship, five carry handles, and paddle straps. Best of all, when you are done you just deflate the board and stick it in the trunk of your car! Or take it on a plane to that ideal fishing hotspot.
Fusion technology uses machine heat and pressure to fuse two layers of PVC together. It eliminates the use of glue, which is more environmentally friendly.
Double layer fused PVC makes for a much lighter, stiffer and stronger board that performs better and is far less likely to puncture.
UV resistant varnish coating on the outer PVC layer extends the life of the board.
The composite drop stitch core increases strength and stability over a traditional nylon core construction.
INFLATABLE SUP'S EXPLAINED
All inflatable paddle boards are not equal and buying a cheap board comes with many pitfalls. Essentially there are 3 different types of inflatable board construction:
Single layer boards are exactly that. A single layer of PVC surrounds the drop stitch nylon core. While these boards are lightweight, they tend to warp in the middle and are far more likely to get a puncture. Also being very light is great for carrying but you will get blow around in the wind. Stingray opted against this cheaper construction, as they just don't perform or last.
Double layer construction is certainly a big step up in durability. The inner board is essentially the same as the single layer, but with an additional layer of PVC glued by hand to the inner layer of PVC. The result is a much stronger and stiffer board, however they are heavy and the amount of glue used is not environmentally friendly.
Double layer fusion is described above and is the pinnacle of modern inflatable board construction. Price range for double layer fusion boards is usually $900-$1500, so that's why we are so proud of our boards in the $625-$675 range!
