Saturn Makes Good Stuff.
Saturn is known for making heavy duty inflatable water sports equipment like kayaks, boats and now paddleboards. This is a good thing to know when buying inflatables, because it helps to buy from a company who already has a good track record.
It’s Cheaper – but Not Short on Features.
They offer several different SUPs in various lengths and widths, but this model is the least expensive that I have found. It’s a medium-sized board, so most people will be able to use it just fine.
It also offers lots of other nice features, like multiple fins for better maneuvering, lots of D rings for attaching gear, a carrying handle for easy transporting and a large track pad so there’s less room to slip.
It’s also super durable and strong, with reinforced, extra-thick material on the top, sides AND the bottom. If you’re looking for a tough, long-lasting board, you’re in the right place.
What is Included with the SUP?
It also comes as a complete kit – with a pump, carrying bag, repair kit and adjustable paddle. The paddle is a nice cost-saving feature because when you have to buy it separately, it can run you on average an additional $100-$150.
A Nice Bonus:
One thing I noticed about this inflatable SUP is that it is 6″ thick. This is thicker than other boards in this price range (about $550-$600), and the extra thickness makes boards sit out of the water more. Therefore, they are more stable to stand on and are faster in the water as well.
