Default SUP on the boat

I have been contemplating getting a SUP to take on the boat for sandbar days. Something my wife and I can paddle around for a little exercise, along with taking our 3 yo for a ride.

I have ridden both rigid and inflatables and for my skill level it makes no difference to me.

I guess an inflatable makes the most sense, but how difficult is pumping it up, rolling it up etc.

any input appreciated

Just bought a Bote inflatable for this exact same reason, plus to have in my truck if I want to drop in after work occasionally. The inflatable is pretty easy to roll up and put in the bag that it comes with. I would highly suggest an electric pump to inflate and delfate. Makes it a lot easier. The Bote requires about 15 psi of air.

I got 2 hard BICs, they are light and easy to put on the boat when we want to take them along.

I have the HD Aero (Bugslinger). I tested the Flood and the HD, just liked stability of the HD better.
