Default Inflatable SUP

I order an iRocker board two months ago and so far its been great! It takes about 7 minutes to inflate to 15PSI using a 12 volt electric pump

I have two of the BOTE inflatables..inflatables are great but you gotta have the electric pump or by the time you get it pumped correctly, you are too tired to paddle..

Bingo! I've pumped up mine and my wife ONCE. I finally got around to doing a time test with my iRocker 12 volt electric pump and it was 7 minutes from 0 to 15psi

I also love it, and yep, it's about 7 minutes to pump it.

Trying to sell the wife on an inflatable with an air pump. She has the impression it will be like standing on a Walmart air floatie pool toy.

She likes the SUPs that we have rented and wants one/two of our own. The problem is transportation. Even my short-bed F-150 would be challenged to transport the boards that she likes.

Mrs. Ninja drives a Ford Fusion. Help me convince her that an inflatable SUP is not a pool toy and I will include an air pump that will run off the car power and/or the blower power of our Dewalt Cordless Vac.

Ninja, I rented one in Florida a few years ago and I was shocked at how rock hard it was. If you just hopped on one in the water you wouldn't be able to tell it was an inflatable. Maybe rent one with the Mrs.

Renting is a good idea to sell her on it. I could pull that off at The Lake or in Florida. She is near The Des Moines River in SE Iowa. My rental options are non-existent.

I like your input and may just buy one on faith that the wife enjoys it like a solid board. Even if not as sporty as a solid board, she would be able to transport it and use it more. Good feedback on the other inflatable SUP threads.

Now to go through the other threads to pick out an inflatable SUP.

Thanks, all!
