Do you want a paddleboard with the rigid feel of a hardboard AND the versatility of an inflatable? Then you’ll appreciate the Nixy Inflatable SUP. It gives you both!
How the Nixy Paddleboard Saves You Money:
Compared to other blow-up paddleboards that have a max 12 or 15 PSI, the NIXY inflates to 20 PSI. In other words, you get an inflatable paddle board that you could easily mistake for the foam core or fiberglass version.
Yet, you don’t have to worry about dings, dents or expensive repairs. Nor do you have to pay hefty luggage fees to travel with it.
Not to mention, you can easily store it at home without without having a lot of space. And, you don’t need to buy a roof rack for your car to transport it to the water.
Bascially, the Nixy inflatable paddleboard has lots of advantages and can save you a bunch of money too.
Note: The more rigid your SUP is, the better it can perform in choppy water, surf or river rapids. It has less bounce and more streamlined glide through the water.
Why this UltraLight SUP is Better:
Nixy’s UltraLight model only weighs about 19 pounds. Compared to other inflatable SUPs, it weighs about 7-10 lbs less.
You will definitely notice this 25%+ savings in weight, whether carrying it in the backpack for transporting it to the water. In my opinion, it’s worth paying more for this feature, especially if you paddle frequently.
As you can see in the diagram above, this board comes with 3 removable fins and 8 handy D-rings for carrying more cargo. Typically, your average inflatable SUP includes only 4 or 5 D-rings. Plus, other models only let you remove 1 fin.
In addition, the special nose design enables your board to glide more easily through the water, no matter what weather you encounter. In other words, paddling will require less effort.
Note: With all of these upgraded features, you’d think that the Nixy would cost significantly more than its competitors. Well, that’s not the case. The entire SUP package only costs about $500!
Nixy Board Construction:
As with most inflatable SUPs, the Nixy uses a heavy duty dropstitch application in the fabrication of their board. So, why should we care?
In addition, Nixy Sports uses their own “Advanced Fusion” technology. This unique structure enables the SUP to be airtight, watertight, stronger, stiffer and lighter in weight.
The SUP Paddle:
The paddle included in this package, however, is not ultralight. It weighs 2.2 lbs because it is constructed of aluminum vs fiberglass.
Many beginner and intermediate riders don’t actually notice the weight difference between a 2.2 lb and 1.7 lb paddle. And the advantage of aluminum is that it can save you about $100.
Besides the cost savings, I like this paddle because it floats. It also breaks apart into 3 smaller sections for easy travel and adjusts from 67″ to 82″ in length.
Therefore, you can fit it perfectly to your height. Not to mention, multiple people can use it.
Do You Want to Travel with Your SUP?
Then, you’ll appreciate the wheeled travel backpack. You can carry it comfortably on your back and roll it on the ground.
In addition, it holds the paddle and pump too. Talk about easy carry-on luggage!
And don’t forget that the NIXY sup weighs 25% less, so carrying it on an airplane or up a hill just became even easier!
Nixy Inflatable Paddleboard Package Includes:
- Stand-Up Paddle Board
- 3-Piece Adjustable Aluminum Paddle
- High Pressure Air Pump with Pressure Gauge
- 10-Foot Coiled Leash (designed for paddleboarding)
- Heavy Duty Nylon/PVC Backpack with Wheels
You Get a 2-year Warranty on this SUP:
Normally, I don’t bring up warranties on these inflatables because most run about 1 year. However, Nixy offers a 2-year warranty, so it is worth mentioning.
In my many years of experience, you don’t typically have to worry about the warranty length because you won’t need it. The heavy-duty drop-stitch construction of most paddleboards make them last a long time, even with frequent use.
That said, I always notice companies that offer longer warranties since it shows that they stand behind their product.
