"What I like most about the Na Pali is its versatility. It
has some really cool options that allow you to use it in different conditions
and paddle in different ways.
For example it is one of the few inflatable SUPís that comes
with a removable seat. The seat attaches to the D-rings and gives you the
option of sitting down and paddling kayak style or stand up paddling.
The anti-skig surface is cushiony and I found comfortable
when sitting on the seat but also provides great traction when standing.
3 Removable Skegs
There are 3 separate skegs that come with the Na Pali. The
large center skeg is ideal for flat water paddling and makes a big difference

The two smaller side skegs are great for paddling in rivers
as they are less likely to get caught on anything but still make maneuvering
The skegs are all removable which is one of the reasons this
board is so versatile. Once attached the fins work great and are very
Overall the performance of this inflatable stand-up paddle board is good. It paddles well, is easy to maneuver and feels very comfortable.
There is no flex when standing on this board, it is very rigid.
The rugged construction, the design and the fins keep it
tracking straight and gliding nicely through the water. I enjoyed paddling it
and had no real issues with the performance.
I donít think it is the fastest board out there but it is
designed for recreational use, cruising around lakes, touring ocean bays or
even paddling down slow moving rivers.
This SUP is very compact. Considering the length, it rolls
up into a nice compact package that is easy to transport in the trunk of your
vehicle or even taken on an airplane.
The convenience that inflatable SUPís offer for those who
love to travel or for those who are short on storage space is bar none. This is
a highly portable stand-up paddle board that is very convenient to use.
The backpack carry bag makes it easy for one person to carry
to and from the water as well as store away.
