Cheap inflatable SUP boards are available from most Big Box stores these days. But are they really a good deal? Flimsy boards & poor quality pumps often disappoint low end inflatable paddleboard buyers. Is there a better solution to price vs quality? Here are some pro's and con's of the Big Box Inflatable SUP.
Floating Mats, sometimes called Water Mats, have been the most sought-after Beach, Cottage and Pool toy for years. You can use them to lounge, as an exercise or play surface for the kids, or as a floating dock. They're great because unlike inflatables, they can't sink, even if they're punctured. While there are some differences between brands, each of these products work on the same principle. They use a marine grade polyethylene 'closed-cell' foam that is durable, has high buoyancy, and won't absorb water.
