Features

The Vilano Navigator 10′ (6″ Thick) Inflatable SUP is another inflatable stand up paddle board package that has everything you need to get started paddle boarding.

This paddle board is made of high grade PVC material, using Korean Drop-Stitch construction. This is standard on many inflatable SUPs these days, and means it’s very strong and can take (most) knocks and drops it receives.

The Vilano Navigator 10′ (6″ Thick) Inflatable SUP is easy to inflate/deflate, and takes approx. five to eight minutes to inflate to its recommended pressure if 18psi.

Dimensions

The Vilano Navigator 10′ (6″ Thick) Inflatable SUP is 10 feet (10’) long, and thirty one inches (31”) wide. It is six inches (6”) thick, which all helps to keep you upright in choppy conditions.

When this inflatable SUP is deflated, it’s only 1 foot (1’) in diameter, and can be rolled up into the included backpack carry bag.

Performance

The Vilano Navigator 10′ (6″ Thick) Inflatable SUP is by no means a board designed for professional use, but for those wanting to get out on the water over the weekend, it’s perfect. It does feel a bit less stable than other SUPs tested, but if you pump up to 13psi instead of 15psi, that seems to help.

This inflatable SUP is strong, and if you’re just starting out on a paddle board, you might find this an additional feature, as it doesn’t take much to accidentally drop it on the rocks as your wading out on the lake, or to run into things when trying to get back to shore!
