  • Inflatable SUP board guide

    Inflatable SUP board guide

    inflatable-sup-board-guide

    Inflatable SUP or Hard Board – that’s the question..?

    Buying an inflatable stand up paddle (SUP) board primarily should not be seen as a compromise on performance, quality or aesthetics. Inflatables
    are far outselling hard boards in the UK because of some serious practical benefits that don’t leave you feeling like you are missing out on some hard board fun.

    Transport

    Having to transport an inflatable SUP consists of a few simple options, chuck it on your back, wheel it down to the water, put it in the boot of your car or cycle down wearing it like a rucksack. The ease of getting from home to the beach with an inflatable is massively different to the hassle of a larger hard SUP board and is one reason why these are a perfect SUP
    board.

    These boards love to travel, the board deflates and rolls up into the wheeled bag for ease of transit. The Red Paddle Bag has been specifically designed for airline regulations and the bag can take the board, pump and paddle and still weigh in at under 20kg, again under most airlines weight restrictions.  Red Paddle have thought of everything…

    So when you book your summer sun, just add an extra suitcase and now you can Paddle board around the world!

    Setting up

    Pump and go time for an inflatable is super quick….fact. With the new Red Paddle Co Titan 2 cylinder pump you can have your SUP inflated and
    on the water with 8-12 minutes at a leisurely pace. This pump is the best in the business and can get that board inflated to the desired PSI in no time for a cruise or surf.

    Storage

    If you own an 11ft hard SUP board then it will always be 11ft, the travel bag that the Red Paddle inflatable comes in can live under the stairs, corner of the garage or keep it in the boot of the car so you are always ready. These options make paddle boarding way more accessible for people without outdoor or garage storage, as all you need is the same space as a suitcase.

    Also you don’t have to deflate every time you use your board if you can get to and from the beach or storage is not an issue – just leave it inflated for the season and deflate when the weather turns… We have had customers that have never deflated their boards since the day they bought them.

    SUP Family and Kids

    The nature of an inflatable board is to sit higher in the water and have more buoyancy, which means they are perfect for the family as a couple of kids can go out on the water, you can take the kids out or even the dog! The soft and super durable construction is suited for kids, rather than the unforgiving construction of a hard board, the last thing you want to happen is the kids getting bonked on the head with a hard board. There isn’t any need to be so precious with an Inflatable SUP on land either, whereas hard boards can easily get dinged on hard surfaces if the kids get hold of them!

    inflatable-sup-board-guide

    Durability – How strong is an inflatable board..?

    We think these boards are bomb proof..! Red Paddle have thrown one off a warehouse roof just for it to laugh at them and bounce around. After this attempt they had a cherry picker drive over it and still nothing. To
    date we have not had one return in the shop from the last few years of
    stocking, selling, paddling and loving these inflatables. These indestructible boards are perfect for a long term purchase for the entire family to go and use without any worry.

    With an inflatable board sitting a little higher in the water,  if you go for a board with that little extra volume for the family, then they are perfect for a couple of kids to go out on the water or take the kids out with you.

    So why only Red Paddle Inflatables Boards

    Red Paddle are a British Company based in Devon – we have backed them from the outset. They pioneered inflatable boards from day one so they
    made the mistakes back in the day that some leading brands are still making today. Clever innovations like the 15% lighter MSL construction, wheeled travel bag, the amazing Titan pump to all products being designed for airline travel make them always one step ahead of the rest and especially suited to what the UK market wants.

    I’ve seen a much one cheaper on Ebay…

    With the phenomenal success of inflatable paddle boards many factories in the Far East that make other inflatable products have jumped on the band wagon and started producing SUPS, they look similar and feel similar – its only when you try one you will realise the difference. One way of making an inflatable SUP cheaper is to use one single layer of construction – this reduces weight, durability but also stiffness which means it will be like standing on a banana as soon as you are on the water and it could be easier to puncture.

    In our opinion there are two types of paddleboards cheap ones and decent ones and nothing in the middle is worth the compromise – We all
    ride Red boards too!

  • Why Try Surfing

    Why try surfing?

     

    Surfing has been around for hundreds of years, for many a past time to get out in the water and have fun. We are lucky enough to have beaches all over the UK that enable us to take part in such a sport!  As part of our try something new week, we spoke with local surfer Morgan to see why she loves the sport.

    why try surfing Morgan Surfing

    What made you want to surf?
    I wanted to surf because my dad would go surfing and not see any teenage girls, so I saw it as a challenge to give it a go.

    Why do you love surfing?
    I love surfing because it gives you a feeling like no other, its almost a stress relief and really helped me during my exams at school.

    why-try-surfing Morgan Surfing

    Any advice for those wanting to give surfing a go?
    To someone that wanted to surf I would say, enjoy yourself. Everyone has to start somewhere and the more fun you have the better!

    If you think its something you would like to try pop into our shop and speak to a member of our team that will happily put you in the right direction.

  • The Roxy Fitness Challenge

    Yoga and surfing go hand in hand and with paddleboard becoming evermore popular, yoga and paddleboarding go hand in hand too!  The 16th July saw Roxy and a fair few yoga, paddleboarding and running enthusiasts descend on Fistral Beach for the Roxy Fitness Challenge.

    We caught up with Oceansportgirls instagram follower Agne who attended the event to see just why she took part and the benefits gained from being involved in such sports

    What made you want to take part in the event?

    There is something thrilling about the start of something new. It challenges the mind! The Roxy Fitness Challenge event is all about uniting girls across the globe and celebrating living an active lifestyle. It means all ages and fitness abilities souls are speaking one physical language. It creates a magical atmosphere, inspires physically, emotionally and I wanted to be a part of it. Trust me, its remarkable ;)

    roxy-fitness-challenge Roxy Fitness Challenge

    Do you take part in Yoga, Running, or Paddleboarding and if so why?

    All people are different and that is amazing, it makes us unique and special. But I tend to fall into the "easily bored" category, so my physical routine consists of mixing up yoga, running, group exercises or long walks. I was lucky to have the opportunity to practice yoga with local teachers and founders.  I particularly enjoy outdoor yoga, being in such beautiful surroundings, it's like the sun, wind and sound of the ocean takes you to the only place where life exists at that present moment.
    Running for me is “need to think" time, time when I can reflect on what has happened during the day and a time to let things go.  At the Roxy Fitness Challenge event, I took part in yoga and running. I'm impressed with paddleboarding but haven't tried myself yet. It's on my TO DO list!

    roxy-fitness-challenge Roxy Fitness Challenge

    What advice would you give to other women wanting to take part in Paddleboarding, Yoga or Running?

    I think it's important to keep your mind stimulated, clear your mind and help you to see the bigger picture from a different perspective. A yoga mat is the safest place to succeed or fail, but you have to be open for that, open to falling and getting back up whether its physically or emotionally. Every woman should honor their bodies with these activities; all they have to do is show up and try their best. Grow and most important have fun!

    Sea Swimming

    Sea swimming

    Sea swimming is a Brighton and all along the South Coast tradition. Due to its popularity, more and more people are inclined to swim in the sea for the majority of the year and not just on those nicer days and the holidays.

    We are getting asked a lot for Sea Swimming or Open Water wetsuits, and depending on what you want from your swimming experience in terms of equipment, this is where we come in.

    Are you after the ultimate experience of swimming when our local sea temperature drops as low as 5°C (41°F) at the coldest time of the year?  You may be looking for a little more protection in the form of a wetsuit and wetsuit accessories?

    Or, all you are looking for is a swim suit, swimming cap and goggles? Either way, we’ve got you covered.

    We have been selling wetsuits in our Brighton store (Ocean Sports) and online (Boardridersguide) for over 25 years. We pride ourselves in offering a wide selection and have friendly, knowable staff on hand to make sure you buy the right wetsuit for you!

    A wetsuit will keep your core warm and provide a little extra buoyancy too! The more neoprene you have on, the warmer you will be. Too much neoprene and you may start to lose the feeling of swimming through the water and just float.

    If you are a member of a sea swimming club, we suggest you speak to your instructor / organiser first, they will be able to offer you the best advice and what you will need for local conditions.  We have found lightweight, short arm and long leg or short leg wetsuits are preferred as they keep the body warm and don’t restrict your movement, allowing you to swim through the water at ease.

    You will find that your hands and feet may get cold also! Fingers and toes are the first to complain in the cold water, we have wetsuit boots and wetsuit gloves that will do just the job.

    Lightweight gloves will keep your hands warmer without detracting too much from the feeling of swimming. Wetsuit boots or wetsuit shoes for sea swimming are recommended to keep your feet warm and protect you from sharp stones and those nasty weaver fish. For colder temperatures we also sell neoprene beanies and hoods to keep all the heat you generate whilst swimming from getting lost through your head (these make a big difference). We also have a good range of sea swimming googles and swimming hats to offer.

    If you need more information please call us on 01273 412241 or check out our recommended sea swimming products in our Men’s Open Water Swimming and Women’s Open Water Swimming sections or better still call into our store in Brighton and say Hi..!
