Imag­ine this… The sun is shin­ing, the crys­tal clear river be­neath you flows calmly, pulling you along. The seren­ity of this per­fectly iso­lated part of the world em­braces you. As you pad­dle calmly around a bend, your eyes gain fo­cus on some­thing in the dis­tance. Bub­bling white wa­ter ap­pears in front of you not 50 me­tres from where you stand atop your board. Your adren­a­line kicks in, and you be­gin to men­tally pre­pare for what lies ahead. You pre­pare your body with a roll of the shoul­ders, and a stretch of the neck.

As you pad­dle to­wards the rapids that are read­ily wait­ing your ar­rival like a mother with open arms, you know from that point you have the skills, and trust your equip­ment is go­ing to pull you through to the other end in one piece. You know this be­cause you are con­fi­dently pad­dling an Imag­ine Surf Rapid­fire In­flat­able Stand-up Pad­dle­board.

Imag­ine Surf prod­ucts are sec­ond to none. If you are go­ing to take on the chal­lenge of run­ning rivers, creeks or oceans on a SUP, then you choose the right equip­ment. All of their In­flat­able SUPS have one thing in com­mon. They have all been de­vel­oped and tested by a crew of the best White Wa­ter SUP pad­dlers in the world.

They boast clever built-in de­sign fea­tures that make Imag­ine Surf’s boards the best op­tion for any­thing stand up. From the dou­ble skin DLX con­struc­tion that pro­vides dura­bil­ity and rigid­ity, mul­ti­pole grab han­dles lo­cated on all ar­eas of the board, to the cargo bungees or the kick up skeg that pre­vents you get­ting snagged in shal­low wa­ters, Imag­ine Surf have thought of ev­ery­thing.

At 9’6” x 36” x 6” the Rapid­fire is built with pro­gres­sive rocker and out­line pro­vid­ing ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity and sta­bil­ity to al­low you to make the moves needed to ne­go­ti­ate down a tech­ni­cal sec­tion of river.

The 11ft In­flat­able An­gler board has a univer­sal ac­ces­sory mount so you can mount your GPS, Fish-fin­der, or Ac­tion Cam. You can even rig a wind­surf sail to get you to your des­ti­na­tion in a breeze. It also comes with fish­ing rod hold­ers and stake-out loops so you can drop an an­chor and bring home din­ner. The 10’ x 37” x 6” In­ferno is a board de­signed for on wa­ter Yoga and Fit­ness. Sup’ing can be great for core work­outs and en­durance con­di­tion­ing; this board takes it to the next level.

The Icon is a great all-rounder and the DLX Wind­surf model op­tion in­cludes all the pre­mium fea­tures of the Icon DLX but you also get a mount­ing plate used to fas­ten the Imag­ine Surf wind­surf base.

Their Con­nec­tor & Mis­sion mod­els have op­tions avail­able to them like snap in Surf or Race fins, and are the per­fect board for en­try level or next level ad­vanced board­ers.

Imag­ine Surf be­gan in 2006, started by a hand­ful of surfers and pad­dlers, and their prod­uct phi­los­o­phy is sim­ple. They build boards they want to pad­dle. Imag­ine Surf is one of the most fun, au­then­tic, and ex­cit­ing pad­dle­board brands on the mar­ket.
