Do you want a large, stable paddleboard with a non-slippery surface for doing yoga poses? The Weekender Yogi extra wide inflatable SUP was specifically designed for you…
4 Reasons Why the Yogi SUP Makes a Great Yoga Paddleboard:
Some stand-up boards work better for yoga than others. Therefore, if you want to establish a regular fitness routine on the water, we’ve listed some tips for chooising the best board…
1. Wide SUP Offers Greater Stability:
Compared to other inflatable SUPs, the Yogi has an additional 6+ inches in width. As a result, you get a more stable surface for doing yoga. Not to mention, more space.
Extra wide paddleboards also come in handy when paddling with pets or kids. Plus, you have more area to carry gear like a cooler or fishing tackle.
2. Textured SUP Surface is Easy to Hold Onto:
Second, the grippy textured foam deck pad extends almost the full length of the board. Therefore, your hands and feet don’t slip off the board as you invert upside down.
Some paddleboards have a deck pad that only runs half the length of the SUP. This makes it more difficult to use the entire surface because it can get quite slippery.
3. Rigid SUP Design Makes it Easier to Do Yoga
Third, the heavy duty dropstitch construction on the interior of these inflatables makes them feel as rigid as a foam or fiberglass board. Therefore, they don’t bounce or sag while you move around on your SUP.
4. Durable Board Construction Gives You a Longer-Lasting SUP:
Fourth, inflatable stand-up paddleboards are virtually indestructible. For example, you can drop them on the ground without worrying about them cracking.
Furthermore, they can bang into boulders, docks or scrape along the sand with no damage.
In other words, your iSUP can last longer with less maintenance than a traditional hard board.
Retrospec Yogi Inflatable Paddleboard Package:
Like most inflatable SUPs, the Yogi comes with a package. Therefore, when you receive your board, you have everything you need to go out and start paddling.
- 10-Foot iSUP
Compared to longer 11-foot or 12-foot boards, the shorter Yogi gives you plenty of exercise area, yet is easier to maneuver through the water. Not to mention, the smaller size makes it easier and lighter to carry.
- 3-Piece Adjustable Aluminum Paddle
Aluminum paddles are standard. However, 3-piece upgraded versions make them convenient to travel with because you can dismantle them into 3 pieces.
- 3 Detachable Fins
3 fins are advantageous because they provide more stability than 1. That said, you want to remove them when traveling. (Not all SUPs have fins that you can remove.)
- High Pressure Air Pump with Gauge
This manual pump features a built-in pressure gauge, so you can see your board’s interior pressure as you pump. (Some pumps don’t come with a gauge, so you’re left guessing.)
- Heavy Duty Carrying Backpack
These backpacks not only fit your SUP, but your pump and paddle as well. Plus, they conveniently strap on your back, so you can have your hands free to carry other gear.
- Bonus Waterproof Phone Case
Nice freebie that includes a safety strap as well.
- Repair Kit
You may never need to use it, but you’ll be glad you have one with you. And, it saves you about $15 from having to buy one separately. =)
