Incorporating many of the same technical features from the rest of the Hobie SUP line, the Hobie Inflatable series makes stand up paddling easy, fun and portable, perfect for families or travellers on the go. The entire Hobie Inflatable series stores neatly and compact, and can be ready to go in a matter of minutes.
Portability is the main feature of an inflatable, but many may think that rigidity and stability may be compromised compared to a tradition “hard” board. Through many years of experience, Hobie has developed technology like Aerolam and S3, to deliver an inflatable SUP that delivers performance like a traditional hard board combined with the portability of an inflatable.
AEROLAM: AERO LAMINATION
Aerolam technology is our premium inflatable SUP construction. At the heart of all Hobie inflatable SUPs is a diagonal drop stitch core. The diagonal drop stitch provides for a much higher density thread distribution vs a standard linear drop stitch, ultimately it provides for a much superior core structure, holding a better shape, preventing twisting, and allows for higher inflation pressures.
In addition to the core, Aerolam features a second and stronger reinforced PVC layer, which is hand glued directly to the core layer. The benefits of this construction are a high performing inflatable SUP that is more durable, can hold additional air pressure (18 psi+), and most importantly maintains its shape.
S3: STAND UP PADDLE STABILITY SYSTEM
An innovative system developed by Hobie, the S3 control plates provide additional stability and rigidity in key areas of the board, providing a superior paddling experience while maintaining optimal portability
