          Cruiser SUP Crossover Air Series

          The Crossover Air series offers stability, ease of use, and durability in conveniently easy to store and transport form. When deflated, inflatables take up no more space than a rolled up sleeping bag, so are ideal for families that have limited storage at home or cottage.  The Crossover Air Series comes in 9'8" through 11'6" sizing and 5 eye catching colors to suit everyone's tastes, size, and skill level.

          Why We Picked It

          Sick of wrestling big and bulky things like canoes or kayaks into storage at the end of cottage season?  Inflatables take care of that as once you release the air pressure and have it back into the wheeled carry case, you can store your boards easily and quickly for the off season. What most don't realize is that inflatables can be left inflated all summer long and only deflated when time to store them for the off season.  Due to their increased thickness compared to non-inflatable boards, the Crossover Air is actually more stable that similar sized non inflatables boards. From a durability view point,  the rugged PVC vinyl construction is similar to that of white water rafting boards and built to last.  Inflatables are a family friendly, durable, and versatile option that should not be overlooked when considering which board to get for your family.

          Who It's For

          • Families looking for all around boards that are easier to store and transport than non-inflatable boards.
          • Families with young kids, as inflatables are very safe boards due to their slightly softer materials.
          • Those looking for great paddling boards that can be used by a variety of weight ranges and skill levels.

          Quick Facts

          Length -  9'8" to 11'6"
          Width -  32" to 33.5"
