Isle Airtech 10′ iSup Inflatable Paddle Board Review
Our top pick is the ISLE Airtech Inflatable SUP, whose wide-nosed shape makes it the ultimate floating platform.
Overall the best paddleboard for yoga, it combines high quality with portability as it’s ultra rigid and durable while still being able to fold up to fit in a backpack.
The ISLE Airtech Inflatable SUP for yoga is incredibly light. Weighing in at just over 18 lbs it’s around a third lighter than most other iSUPs, but when in use you’ll barely notice a difference in quality from a traditional hardboard.
With all the poses and moves involved with yoga, you’ll want a board that’s stable and sturdy – and this inflatable SUP definitely delivers. Not only is it six inches thick, but it’s also made from military grade PVC, featuring lamination along with sealing layers. Whether you’re a downward dog or a scorpion kind of person, this super stiff board will be more than enough to support you.
If you’re looking for a SUP specifically with yoga in mind, then you’ll probably be looking for something designed for use in flat water. Although this SUP fits the bill, it offers increased versatility: it performs well in the surf as well as on flat water. Its size means that this stand up paddle board will struggle to catch large waves, but if you fancy a change then you’ll be able to have a go on some smaller waves.
Despite its size, durable construction and maximum rider weight of 255 lbs (more if you’re an experienced rider), this stand up paddle board is remarkably portable. When it’s rolled up it can fit into its travel-friendly backpack, although it probably won’t fit into a normal luggage bag. Nevertheless, it still offers plenty of opportunity for taking SUP yoga on your travels which you simply don’t get from a hardboard.
Who Should Buy?
Due to its cool colors and stylish mandala design, this inflatable stand-up paddleboard for yoga is likely to appeal to the female market. However, it’s not excessively feminine, so there’s nothing to stop it from becoming a great purchase for a male SUP enthusiast.
Large, thick and very stable, it can support all yoga poses as well as some basic recreational paddling.
