Depending on where you live it may not be all that easy to find a good selection of inflatable stand-up paddleboards.
Online you can find more board options as well as price differences. Also the shipping is often free or at least very minimal.
Below is a list of great inflatable SUP retailers – many of which I have shopped at myself. They are all excellent resources for ISUP’s and paddling gear.
The majority are in the United States but if you scroll down you will find a few Canadian retailers as well as one in the UK.
United States Retailers
I bought my first inflatable kayak at Sea Eagle years ago. I have since shopped there many times and find their prices to be awesome. They manufacturer their own line of inflatable boats, kayaks and now an ISUP. In my experience they offer a lot for your money and the quality is excellent. Their inflatable longboard is well worth checking out. All of their products come with a great 3 year warranty.
