Story:
I go up to Malibu almost every weekend, and for a year, I’ve watched paddle boarders go by me with envy. I have a small car and on top of that don’t have anywhere to store a large paddle board, so I thought could never get one. Those problems all went away when I discovered ISLE. At first I was skeptical of an inflatable paddle board, but after using it my first time that fear quickly went away.

The inflatable blows up to be just as sturdy as a hard paddle board, and it’s so easy! It fits perfectly in my trunk with the backpack, and I’ve also been able to take it on my trips, most recently to  Maui. Not only is it amazing but the customer service is also great — I lost my paddle, no idea how, but they sent me a new one the next day before my trip. My board is sturdy, the perfect width, and comes with straps in the front and back so I can store my valuables when I’m on the water. Highly recommend it!

Made it back to land!
