Solstice Bali Inflatable Paddle Board Review

Perfect for beginners, the Solstice Bali SUP is the best stand-up paddleboard for yoga if you’re on a budget.

It might be cheap, but it doesn’t compromise on quality as it’s one of the longest boards we’ve found, matching only the larger of the Red Paddle Co boards. Quick to inflate and easy to transport, this board is perfect for those who want to enjoy yoga out on the water with as little fuss as possible.

Solstice have used a reinforced PVC material, durable drop stitching and a design featuring several layers to create a board that is stable, durable and buckle-resistant. As a result, their Bali stand-up paddleboard is well suited to anyone wanting to try out some yoga poses on the water.

It’s best for lightweight riders or beginners to iSUP yoga because anyone heavier or more experienced might find it a little more unstable than expected. This is because despite being 10’8″ long, it’s narrower than the Red Paddle Co RIDE SUP, which does take some getting used to.

Nevertheless, in order to enhance your yoga experience, this inflatable SUP does come with a full non-slip mat which gives extra grip. This mat does show some signs of wear after considerable use (such as minor creases from being rolled up) but it still provides a comfortable, safe surface on which to practice iSUP yoga.

Although this stand-up paddleboard doesn’t come with any bungee cord like many of the SUPs for surf, it does come with the added feature of having four stainless steel loops to which you can tie or secure your belongings. This gives you the versatility to secure whichever gear you choose in as safe a way as you see fit. It’s the little details like this which make this Solstice paddle board excellent value for money.

Who Should Buy?

Longer, narrower and thinner than many other stand up paddle boards for yoga, this model is best suited to people weighing under 200 lbs. It’s designed to glide smoothly along flat water, so it’s perfect for beginners to the SUP yoga scene. Furthermore, its good build quality makes it a great choice for anyone on a budget.
