WHICH BOARD IS BEST FOR ME?

 Which Board is Right For Me / My Family?

What size, what shape, what price, what construction?

There are two main factors when choosing a SUP:

Budget and how you plan to use your SUP.

General Information

We have carefully selected our quality supply partners. They are all established brands offering 3 year Warranties, with great track records, offering peace of mind for us and our customers. 


A quality SUP and its accessories, well looked after, will last for many more years than the warranty, so investing in a quality board is well worth it in our opinion as there are many 'pop up' brands appearing, with no track record or warranties.


A minimum of 20 PSI pressure should be the minimum for a modern inflatable SUP in 2021. 

Poor quality boards tent to drag and sag in the water and are not fabricated in a way to bring a required stiffness to a board, inhibiting the function of the board when being used properly. 


When comparing, check how the boards are bonded- are they glued or heat bonded? And how is the drop stitching done - cross - or straight (the nylon threads inside the board that you cannot see that keep the shape of the boards when inflated)? 

Double or single skinned? All of our board are double skinned, helping the rigidity and reducing the chance of puncturing. 


Make sure to compare like for like, with quality of the accessories - the bags, fins and paddles?

Jobe Inflatable 'Aero' Ranges:

Jobe Aero Premium Range

HEAT BONDED TECHNOLOGY
Jobe inflatable Aero SUP boards are mase with theie unique Heat Bonded Technology reduces 25% in weight and increases around 30% in stiffness when compared to the standard Double Layer technology. The inside of our Aero range consists of a high density of nylon threads, fused to a solid PVC-coated base cloth by pre-laminated heat bonded technology. This process is heat controlled and performed by machine removing all possible human errors. 

Two layers of drop stitch reinforcements protects and strengthens Jobe boards to its max. All processes together, make a Jobe board glide through the water like a hot knife through butter. It makes an inflatable 2 kilo lighter. It also makes it stiffer, stronger, extremely airtight and most importantly: super durable. As for making it more easy to take your SUP anywhere: all boards come in a waterproof backpack, so you can pack your gear and discover the world! 

Jobe Aero Standard Range

The Standard Aero Range sells for slightly less than the Premium - it has a single stringer on the top of the board and an aluminium paddle.

The Range is made up of the Yama for kids , Mira for lighter paddlers and the very popular Family SUP the Leona. 

Jobe Bamboo Range

Jobe's Bamboo boards are perfect when you live close to the water or when you have a lot of storage place. A great benefit is that you don’t have to inflate the board before you get on the water. Also, a bamboo board is slightly faster and more  responsive than an inflatable paddle board. And last but not least, the bamboo finish looks really luxurious.


Jobe Titanium Range

As strong as titanium: our ultra-strong boards from the Titan series. These boards can handle heavy impact and have one of the highest levels of buoyancy due to a durable soft EPS core wrapped in a monocoque fiberglass layup. Blended together with the world’s strongest polycarbonate shell - created with vacuum molding - the Titan is developed to handle heavy impact.
