Read: 7 mins. About five months ago, my best friend and I each purchased an inflatable, standup paddleboard (iSUP) so we could get some fun exercise in while socially distancing amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. It was also meant as a way to bond with our children, and not long after, many friends joined in with boards of their own. Their favorite was the Runwave Kohala that also proved quite popular around the harbor we paddled at. In this review, I take a look at what makes it an excellent beginner board. It had also been marked a "Best Seller" by Amazon.com a couple times.
Read: 6 mins. Ever since my best friend and I tried stand up paddle boarding (SUP) a few years ago, we had always wanted to purchase one but did not know whether we would enjoy it enough to buy one. Today, after having rented one many times, we decided it was time to own one but were unsure about whether to get an inflatable (iSUP) or a hard SUP. This review dives into the differences between them, and why I ultimately chose the inflatable, DvSport Sunshine.
