Why Glide Inflatable Paddle Boards Make Wonderful Christmas Gifts

We know that the holiday season can become stressful with giving the right gift to your loved ones.

Here's why Glide Inflatable Paddle Boards make the absolute best Christmas gift for you and your family/friends!

Picking out perfect holiday gifts is often difficult, but Glide Blow Up Paddleboards are an unusual, creative gift of adventure and recreation.

You're giving your loved one an investment in their health and fitness and an invitation to go play. Many gifts, while thoughtful, end up being one more object taking up space without doing much to enrich our lives.

Why not gift something that will empower the receiver to go out and enjoy themselves on the water? Giving a stand up paddleboard is essentially presenting someone with a healthy new hobby.

Hobbies help one structure their time, reduce boredom, boost confidence and cope with stress. How many gifts can claim that distinction? A Glide inflatable paddleboard is a gift that is both material and experiential.

A majority of people say that they prefer experiential gifts and an iSUP isn't a one-off like tickets to a concert or a trip- it's an endless pass to play on the water.

You're giving someone a path to greater well-being, health and fun and they still get to open a large present! Most people prefer exercising outdoors and many report “gym burnout”.

Even if they aren't really focused on getting in shape, a paddle board recipient is improving their health, and studies show that outdoor exercise has the biggest impact on mental health.

The benefits of a stand up paddleboard don't end there, though. They're perfect for traveling with (if your loved one is headed somewhere warmer for the holidays, their SUP is easily going with them).

The wheeled Glide SUP bag is designed for airport travel and stows nicely in any vehicle. A paddle board that you don't have to have a garage to store and can easily fit in a closet or shelf is a considerate gift.

So whether one is just getting out and exploring around their home base or going long distances, the paddle board isn't going to hamper anyone.

This is also a gift that's going to last for years and years if cared for properly (put it away dry and store it out of the sun is pretty much all there is to keeping an inflatable paddleboard healthy).

People unfamiliar with iSUPs tend to think that they're less durable and prone to popping. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Glide inflatable SUPs are constructed using fusion technology, and made with pvc and dropstitch cloth specced for military use. They can withstand scrapes, rock hits, and most minor abuse that will crack and puncture rigid paddleboards.
