  • Sale
  • Regular price $799.99


Design

The Blue Lotus is designed to be one of the most stable boards on the market. Perfect for beginners, yet nimble enough for veteran riders.  Our 6" model, measuring 10'6" x 32" x 6" and capable of carrying 250+ lbs is one of the finest paddleboards available today. It is manufactured with double rolled rails, high tensile drop stitch space yarn all sandwiched between 0.7mm double layer PVC tops and bottoms. It comes equipped with our innovative kayak seat system capable of converting your iSUP to a sit down kayak in mere seconds. With one of the highest inflation ratings available (25 PSI), this board is "hard like a coconut".

 

Durability

Known as one of the most durable Inflatable stand-up paddleboards available in the world, our signature design specifications sets the bar compared to big box store paddleboards.

Have you ever wondered what makes a board more or less durable?  The first thing to look at are the "dimples". More dimples means more drop stitch space yarn which creates the internal structure.  Imagine a bridge with many cross members compared to a bridge with a few. These fibers are an integral part of the board that creates rigidity and eliminates flex and also increases the air pressure (pounds per square inch or "PSI") rating that the board can handle.

As a general rule, higher PSI boards are higher quality. All of our boards are capable of inflating to a mind boggling 25 PSI which is a whopping 20% higher than the company claiming to be the world’s top selling iSUP and almost 70% higher than the 15 PSI reccomended rating on the vast majority of boards on the market. 

Our boards are also made with military grade PVC tops and bottoms and double layer sides (0.54mm inner and 0.7mm outer) to take any side abrasion. These are virtually indestructible SUP's and capable of sliding across a sharp river rock, a dogs sharp fingernails, a stick on the beach or your kids making a sand castle on them. Our double rolled rails also make these boards ultra stiff by increasing the side structure and boosting the flexural stiffness. Many of our customers are surprised at how rigid these really are without the hard feel and inherent safety risks of a fiberglass board.  Most big box store cheap boards are single layer construction, inflate to a meagre 15-18 psi and have a greatly reduced number of drop stitch space yarn threads.
