The Driftsun is another board with a smaller profile that is able to hold up to 350 Lbs max weight. It measures 10’ x 30” x 6” thick when inflated. It has a slightly elevated nose to help you gain speed and move over choppy water.

The bundle comes with everything you need to get started from the board, the fins, the paddle, the pump, and even the carrying bag to keep it stored easily and also make transporting it a breeze. The pump is a tall, “bicycle tire” style pump that allows you to use your body, unlike some other manual pumps that will wear you out rather quickly.

The traction pad on this board is large so it is perfect for exercising or practicing meditation or yoga. There is also a bungee tie-down area for storage. Even though it weighs only 28 Lbs, it is just as strong as a non-inflatable board once it is in the water and ready for use.

Pros & Cons

  • High quality, military-grade materials and construction
  • Kit contains everything you need to get started
  • You can inflate the board in less than 5 minutes
  • Not as stable as some other boards
  • Paddle isn’t as high quality as the other items in the bundle, including the board itself
