The BEST inflatable SUP on the market
If I were to design a board, this would be it. I wasn't sold on inflatables until I rode this board. The Carbon Playa is a GAME changer for anyone looking for the performance of a hard board with the transportability of an iSUP. First off, at 4.75 " thick, it rides lower to the water than most other inflatable SUPs so there's less wind resistance and faster glide. The 30" width along with the length of this board adds to its speed. The carbon creates less bounce, more stability and durability - and YOU FEEL it. As for its surf-ability, I have surfed this board a few times and it doesn't turn like my traditional surfboard, but the lower rails help and it will get you out there riding some fun sized surf. There's plenty of rocker too - so it carves nicely. Fo touring, the bungee at the nose sits at just the right place to be out of the way when I'm toting gear around. If you're looking for a comparable board to your favorite hard board, stop looking. This is it.
