Celebrate stand up paddleboarding with a tropical taste of the place where SUP began. The striking pink and black floral design is just one traditional aspect of the POP Royal Hawaiian Inflatable Paddleboard. This board was made to cut the waves, as its ancient predecessors did – with a squash tail designed to improve stability and thrust in small surf. Its shorter and narrower dimensions also make it more responsive and manoeuvrable than POP’s other top-quality boards.
You can ride the tide with confidence, knowing POP’s 360° diamond traction surface will keep you all but glued to your board. The board itself may be an inflatable, but it will take those crests with the rigidity of a hardboard. Quickly inflated to 15 PSI with its dual-action pump, the Royal Hawaiian’s military-grade construction makes bending or puncturing virtual impossibilities, and with up to 300 lbs of weight capacity, it can support a mighty big kahuna.
It’s as feature-rich as it is durable and manoeuvrable. Carry it to or from the water with a central handle or haul it up on a boat or doc with a second handle at the rear. That’s where you’ll also find a universally-aadaptable fin and stainless steel D-rings for mooring your board. Up toward the nose, you’ll find storage bungee straps to hold your water bottle, life vest and other accessories. Once deflated, the entire Royal Hawaiian, its pump, repair kit and 3-piece adjustable paddle can fit in one matching bag – small enough to fit on a car seat or inside a closet. If your paddleboarding zeal takes you to faraway waters, this bag wheels easily through any airport terminal.
