Cruiser SUP and Paddleboard Direct BBQ Event!

On Saturday May 24th, Cruiser SUP and Paddleboard Direct held a promotional event to debut and get feedback on the all new Cruiser AIR Inflatable SUP Series. We set up a fun, family BBQ at Boynton Beach Inlet Park on the beautiful Intracoastal waterway of South Florida. The park sits right on a sandy beach with nice calm water that is perfect for beginners to the sport of SUP or for going fast on these super light weight inflatable Cruiser SUP's. We grabbed one of the waterfront pavilions in the park and spent the day enjoying the beautiful weather and taking turns having a blast on the paddleboards.

The turnout for the event was even better than we expected! We had everyone ranging from first time beginners to a few experienced SUP enthusiasts. The one common thing among everyone was how awesome these inflatable Cruiser SUP's are. People couldn't believe that these nice rigid boards were inflatables and when deflated could fold up and fit inside of a backpack style bag. The feedback we got was overwhelmingly positive. Many of our guests had given SUP a try on a traditional solid board and were discouraged by the weight of the boards and instability. With a little encouragement, we got these guests to give it another shot on one of our inflatable Cruiser AIR models and not one of them had a bad experience.

Here are a few of our guest comments from their experience on a Cruiser AIR Inflatable SUP:

"I took the Cruiser SUP Koa AIR out for a paddle and had an amazing time on it! It was only my second time paddle boarding so I was a bit nervous, however, I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth and easy the SUP was to ride. After 20 or so minutes paddling around on the Koa AIR I came in and then realized I had not fallen once! After that, I am definitely more comfortable paddle boarding and look forward to my next session!" Alonso, Boca Raton, FL

"If I wasn’t told that this was an inflatable board, I never would have known. Just as sturdy and maneuverable as the countless standard SUP’s I’ve ridden, and much more convenient to transport, carry, etc. The Cruiser SUP V-max AIR is probably the fastest board I have ever ridden." Josh, Delray Beach, FL 

"How do you top a smile from ear to ear? Thats the question I am left with after my 3 year old and I just rode the Voyager together and my 10 year old son and 9 year old daughter each conquered the Koa. Incredible fun packaged in a back pack. Stable and Light, perfect combination for safe weekend fun." Shane, West Palm Beach, FL

We ended up taking a ton of photos from the event - some that you see here on this post and many more to come on the Cruiser SUP and Paddleboard Direct Instagram and Facebook pages.
