This is an excellent beginner paddleboard at a fantastic price.

We can say with confidence that with this product, you can get off to the best possible start to, or even a continuation of, your journey in the SUP world.
What is included in the purchase?
Included in this beginner set is everything you need to get started. There are no additional accessories that you'll need to go out and buy once you've purchased this starter kit.
Let’s start with the most important thing. First and foremost, of course, you get the red paddle board itself.
The paddleboard is inflatable, making it easy and convenient to transport around. If you have a car without much space, for example, it's really helpful to be able to wait to pump up the SUP board until you have reached the water. Additionally, you can easily store the board at home in the closet when you're not using it. These inflatable SUP boards are often made from layers of PVC plastic with woven fibers that are connected crosswise inside the board, making the board very rigid and stable when filled with air. This is also the case with this board. Another advantage of an inflatable paddleboard versus a hardboard is how little an inflatable board weighs. They weigh less because they simply do not contain much more than plastic and air. It may sound fragile, but it's a very robust and solid type of plastic that doesn't break easily.
With the included pump, you can pump up the paddleboard whenever you need it.
However, don't worry about constantly needing the pump handy in case the paddleboard deflates. Paddleboards like the CoolSurf Surfy are known for retaining air for an incredibly long time - often for several months. You only need to pump the board up once throughout the summer. Keep in mind, however, that the board should be kept in the shade when not in use. This allows it to more efficiently retain air.
In addition to the paddleboard itself and the pump, you'll get a nice, large travel bag, which has room for the SUP board itself and all the accessories. The bag is a rucksack, so you can easily and comfortably walk around with the board, all while keeping your hands free.
A repair kit is also included in case you encounter an issue and quickly need to repair your CoolSurf Surfy board.
In order to set off on your paddleboard water adventure, you obviously need a paddle to propel yourself with. As a result, a robust and impressively durable aluminium paddle is also included. An aluminium paddle is perfect for people who are just starting out. Aluminium is a strong material, ideal for the many hundreds or evn thousands of paddle strokes you'll do on your trip.
An important safety precaution when heading out on the water with a paddleboard is that you also wear the included safety strap so that the board doesn't float away from you if you end up falling off. If you don't use the safety strap, you could very quickly end up having a difficult swim back to shore.
This fantastic starter kit also comes with a single nylon fin with a screw thread, to be installed underneath the paddleboard. The fin helps to provide stability and increased balance, significantly reducing the risk of you falling into the water. In addition to the fin, which you should make sure to install on the bottom of the board, there are also two smaller fins at the back on the right and left hand-sides of the board. They are fixed in place by default and they, alongside the removable fin, ensure that the paddleboard stays steady when you're paddling away.
What exactly are the main characteristics of this paddleboard?
· Optimal stability
· Elastic cables for attaching bags etc.
· Ideal for both beginner and advanced paddleboarders
· Rounded nose to achieve high speeds
· Good width and length
· Non-slip surface
· Handle to carry the board with
This SUP board is 3.2 meters long, and as you can see in the pictures, the board has a nose that is both slightly pointed and slightly rounded. Because the nose is slightly rounded, you'll achieve optimal stability when you get out onto the water.
The width of 76 cm means that there is plenty of space for you to stand with your feet firmly planted on the board, without having to worry about falling into the water.
By far the greatest strength of this board is its impressive stability. To ensure maximum safety and stability, the board has a non-slip surface, allowing you to stand firmly and securely.
This paddleboard's stability provides a number of benefits when encountering smaller waves out on the water. An SUP board like this is of high quality and is produced from the finest materials. Normally, a board like this would cost more than double what we're selling it for.
At the front of the board, there are a few elastic straps that you can use to attach bags or other types of luggage so you don't have to worry about your things falling into the water while you paddle along.
In the middle of the board, there's a strap that you can grab and lift the board with when, for example, you have to carry it from the car to the water.
This paddleboard's special 4-layer construction lends credence to its high quality, which is one of the reasons for its enhanced stability that lets you relax when you take it out on the water, worry-free that you might lose your balance.
The fact that you also get a variety of accessories with the purchase at the same time just makes it an even better deal.
While it may appear that this CoolSurf Surfy Paddleboard is only for beginners, that is by no means the case. In fact, the board is just as well suited for those more experienced paddlers who are looking for a more classic touring board for longer trips. We recommend that you always pump up your SUP board fully to the maximum recommended pressure. This board's maximum recommended pressure is 12-15 PSI, which is equivalent to 1 bar. If you make sure to pump the board all the way up, you'll achieve the greatest possible buoyancy and the highest possible speeds.
There is a manometer on the pump where you can keep an eye on the pressure as you pump air in. However, it should be noted that you have to pump the board well up before you can actually start reading the pressure on the manometer.
All in all, we believe that the inflatable CoolSurf Surfy paddleboard - and not least the amount of relevant and useful accessories that come with it - make this starter kit the perfect investment for anyone who wants to get off to the best start in the world of SUP. You're guaranteed hours upon hours of fun, stress relief and good exercise for the whole family on both short and longer trips.
What is an all-round paddleboard?
It doesn't really matter whether you choose to call this paddleboard a beginner's paddleboard or an all-round paddleboard.
Let's just try to clarify what an all-round paddleboard really is.
In short, an all-round board - as the name suggests - can be used in virtually all conditions that are suitable for paddleboarding. The versatility of an all-round paddleboard is reflected in the fact that it can be used by beginners, who might be just trying out the sport for the very first time, as well as more experienced paddleboarders, who may have already mastered SUP to a certain degree and who really just want a quality board at a very reasonable price.
Also, by buying a paddleboard like this CoolSurf Surfy Paddleboard, you don't need to spend a fortune to get going. As we've mentioned, the package includes the board itself as well as all the accessories you need to get started. An all-round paddleboard is also often characterised by the fact that it is relatively wide, allowing it to be used on shallow, calm water as well as more challenging, slightly more wavy waters.
The board's non-slip surface is not only useful for beginners who may be taking their first steps on the board and who may be feeling a bit tense or nervous about the whole SUP "thing". It's actually useful for people of all experience levels, as a non-slip surface naturally lets you stand more stably and securely, allowing you to really give your paddle strokes your all to sail around and reach the speeds that you want.
Why give stand up paddleboarding a go?
Over the past few years, stand up paddleboarding has surged in popularity.
For those of you who don't know much about the sport yet, SUP (Stand-Up Paddleboarding) is really just standing on a surfboard with a paddle in your hand, which you use to propel the board forward and maneuver with.
Its growing popularity is largely related to a very basic and natural human need. We want to experience something. We want to adventure. With stand up paddleboarding, it's not about coming first. It's about exploring and unwinding.
Another reason for the surge in popularity that SUP has experienced in recent years is the target market being so incredibly broad. SUP is suitable for both children and adults, so the whole family can go on adventures on their own paddleboards, or with a parent and one child on each board. If you're a bit older, and the children would like to bring a grandparent along, then there's certainly no reason why that can't happen. Whether you are 7 or 80 years old, we can say with confidence that SUP is something that you'll be able to take part in.
You don't need much more than a paddleboard, a life jacket, a paddle and a bit of getting used to it all before you're well on your way.
It gives you a great sense of freedom to just drift off on a paddleboard, feeling like you're standing on the water and with the whole world in your hands. You'll often feel a greater sense of freedom when it comes to movement and control than if you were in a kayak, for example.
As a beginner, you shouldn't worry at all about jumping right into SUP. The included safety strap, which you fasten to the board, ensures that if you do happen to accidentally fall off the board, the board won't drift away from you and you won't drift away from the board.
The inflatable CoolSurf Surfy Paddleboard is among our absolute top bestsellers, and that is largely due to the fact that there's almost no easier way into the hobby than with this starter kit. Everyone can join in, and you don't need to buy a load of other things to get going.
With this beginner's set, you can get paddling right away.
