Quality Speaks for itself
My 6 year old kayaks along side me and sometimes I tie his kayak to my board and I paddle while he sits, lays or stands on the board with me (with tons of extra room front & back). I’ve even boarded around with my mom on it with me.
At the end of the day, everyone gravitates towards it. Whoever I am with always wants to try it, when their kayaks are parked on the beach, we are all out on the paddle board sitting on the side like a floating dock, or swimming in the middle of the lake taking turns on it.
That all being said, when it’s time to deflate and pack my board back up, it’s pretty much a 3-5 minute job. I’ve got it deflated, rolled up (starting from front is the easiest in my experience) and in the back pack ready to pop in the trunk before most even have all their stuff out of their kayaks! 🙂
Overall- I am super pleased with the board, ease of use, and most of all the fun that i’ve experienced in the short period of time that i’ve had it. I hope this helps anyone who has the same questions I had when I first started researching.
My ROC board has been fantastic. My wife bought a different board (it was ok) however I wanted one with a higher weight capacity. This holds up to 350 lbs. I have had myself(larger male) and both my children on it with me with no issues. The paddle is very nice as well. They put floatable foam inside the rods to prevent it from sinking. We have left these blown up for several days and neither have lost any air. I haven’t tried the water proof bag yet but love that it came with one. The bag is really nice as well. We love that we can transport these. We’ve now used them on 3 different lakes and our only snag was busting a center fin which was my fault. You can easily buy a replacement for about 15$. Overall we couldn’t be happier. It’s nice to get into the paddle board game without spending $1,000 per board.
I’ve only used this SUP once and It was my third time ever Stand Up Paddling so I’m not an expert on this matter but I gotta say this I made a right choice choosing this one. It’s sturdy and stable. The three fins make a big difference. While I was out the water got choppy plus jet skis and boats passing by throwing wakes I was still comfortable enough to stay standing, while kneeling down was much better. The air pump works good. It comes with two ‘rubber rings’ that goes onto the air socket, make sure to try both, one is slightly wider and keeps the valve fully sealed while you’re hitting 10+psi. It takes me like 10 min to reach 13 psi. I’m 5,5ft 114lbs and I don’t need the 15psi if it’s just me on it. The dry bag is surprisingly really good. The paddle is adjustable and comfortable, light enough, nothing fancy. I’d does float for a few mins. Enough for you to recover it when falling. It’s all black so I’d add a bright color tape for some visibility. The backpack is actually pretty cool. Although I’d appreciate a better design with the shoulder straps and waist belt. After 10 min walking with the board, pump, paddle and whatever else you bring it gets quite uncomfortable. Bungee cords are great. 6 points instead of 4 where most of all other SUP I saw they had. Leash works great. Overall I’m glad I chose this one. I spent LOTS of time comparing and searching and checking reviews and videos and what not.
I was looking for an affordable, inflatable paddle board that I could stow away and easily inflate when I wanted it. I have rented inflatable paddle boards that are double the price of this, so I was pleasantly surprised to see what great quality this board has! It is sturdy when blown up and definitely big enough for me and my pup (plus it was easy for her to stay on). I love how it fits easily (with the pump) in the backpack which makes it convenient for throwing in the back of the car or in a closet at home. Would definitely recommend to others!
I was super nervous on this purchase, being that it was my first inflatable SUP, and I knew nothing about the brand. After doing some research and reading the reviews, I decided to take a leap and I am so happy I did! I am OBSESSED with my board. Even with it being my first Inflatable, all the pieces are pretty standard and self explanatory. I’ve had it for a few weeks now, and used it a number of times. I opted to use the hand held pump they send with instead of purchasing an electric and haven’t had issues. Overall, everything has held up perfectly. Bonus that the design is sleek looking. Thinking of potentially buying another.
This is my first SUP board, and I’m very happy with it! The size of the board is perfect, great quality board, bag, paddle, the works… they definitely did an amazing job with this paddle board! Best Purchase Ever! The bag it comes with is comfortable and easy to carry, I must admit, I was worried about the size of the bag but they managed to make it big enough to the board and all your goodies.
I spent quite a bit of time shopping around for a reasonably priced paddle board that came with all the accessories and I read a lot of great things about the quality of this board, so I went ahead and purchased it. Right out of the box everything looked high quality. I haven’t used it on the water yet because it’s still chilly in Colorado but I inflated it in my house and was very impressed with the durability. It was easy to deflate and pack up in the carrying bag too. I was shocked how nicely everything fit in the bag and how light it all was, I mean I wouldn’t want to carry it for miles and miles, but it’s doable. I can’t wait to get out on the water! I’ve been recommending this board to all my friends who are the fence about buying one. There are lots of places to rent them here in CO but by the time you spend the summer renting, you could’ve just bought one, so do it! 🙂
This is the second SUP I have purchased, and is far superior to the first. My first was a board made by Bestway, and although it was quite a bit cheaper than this board, it is definitely worth spending the extra $$ on this board! The ROC board is longer and wider than my old board (making it waaay more stable to stand on, which is great, especially for beginners), yet somehow also seems less heavy to transport (inflated or in the travel bag.) This board inflates extremely fast with the included hand pump, compared to others I have used. (Takes me no more than 5 mins from start to finish to blow it up by hand.) I weigh 125#, and usually only blow it up to between 7-9 PSI. (Recommended minimum is 10 PSI, but I have found this isn’t really necessary for someone my size.) For comparison, regarding inflation time, other boards have generally taken me anywhere from 10-15 mins to blow up. This means less time working; more time playing in the water! I have used this board nearly every day since I have purchased it, and it has done great in the lake as well as the river. The waterproof bag it comes with was a great added bonus as well! Plus, there is a year warranty included, in case anything happens to your beloved new board. (Just make sure you register your board with ROC when you get it!) Overall, I have been very satisfied with my experience with this board, and highly recommend!
