Key Considerations for a Fishing SUP

Durability and Capacity: For those eyeing an inflatable fishing SUP, it's crucial to opt for one with robust construction—preferably with at least three layers of PVC—to endure the rigors of fishing adventures. A high weight capacity, around 450 lbs or more, is essential to accommodate you, your gear, and your catch. Solid fishing boards, while not concerned with PVC layers, should also offer substantial weight capacity.
