One of the pioneers of the inflatable SUP market, NRS applies their decades of experience in inflatable watercraft to the SUP with double sidewall drop-stitch PVC construction that inflates to a remarkably rigid 15 psi. Properly inflated, NRS SUP's rival, and often exceed, the performance and durability of hard boards, with wide ranging design options optimized for a variety of uses and water conditions.

Ease of Storage, Transport & Security

All NRS inflatable SUPs can be easily packed for storage and transport with the included backpack. Storage dimensions for all are less than 3'H x 2'W x 1'D (See specific storage dimensions for each model below). Store it on a shelf or in the corner of a closet, and there's no need for an expensive specialized rack system - just toss it in the trunk or hatchback when you're ready to go. At 25 lbs or less, you can pack it in to remote alpine lakes or streams nearly impossible to access with other paddlecraft.

Often overlooked is the security advantage offered by an inflatable. Hard boards are notoriously difficult to securely lock to a rack system, often making them an easy target for those with bad intentions. A paddleboard locked in a trunk is a much more difficult target, and certainly a less obvious one.

Triple Fin Box Design

NRS paddleboards utilize a unique triple-fin box design, and with two 2”, two 5” and one 9” fins included, you can easily modify your board for the specific water conditions you'll be encountering.

Choosing the Right SUP 

Deciding which SUP is right for you is in large part about answering the question: What sort of water am I likely to paddle most often? There's also the question of body type and weight.

As with canoes and kayaks, stand up paddleboard design affects performance based on three fundamental factors: length, width, and rocker. Length and width influence speed and stability in an inverse fashion – the longer and narrower it is, the faster, yet stability is lessened. Shorter and wider means more stability, but less speed.

Rocker is the last factor, and refers to the amount of curvature along the waterline; for SUP's this usually occurs most dramatically in the nose of the board. Boards with high rocker, such as the Czar and Tyrant, will turn easily, a very desirable trait if you'll be paddling mostly on rivers. The trade off is a high rocker SUP will be difficult to track straight on lakes. On the other hand, a board with moderate to little rocker will track straighter with less effort, but require more effort to turn.

The other factor affecting performance is the thickness of the board. For people under 200 lbs, the lower volume 4” boards will generally be the best choice. If you're north of 200 lbs, the high volume 6” boards are likely to perform significantly better for you. The chart below each model description will help fit the board, again dependent upon the type of paddling you intend to do.
