For those looking to get into paddle boarding over the summer, the Goplus 11′ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boarding Package is a great option – read below to see why.
The Goplus 11′ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boarding Package is a great option for those just getting into paddle boarding. Being inflatable, it stores away easily enough – as well as being easy to transport in small vehicles. It has plenty of D rings to attach storage (or even a kayak seat – sold separately), and performs admirably in flat water conditions.
Made of military grade drop stitch construction, this inflatable paddle board can withstand abuse, but don’t let that give you an excuse to treat it too rough. Accidental drops are one thing – intentionally dragging it through rocks are another.back to menu ↑
The Goplus 11′ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board is 11 feet (11’) long, and 30 inches (30″) wide. It is 6 niches thick (6″), which gives it great stability in many different conditions. Being a larger paddle board, it may not suit surf conditions, but on flat water you’ll be tracking like a pro in no time!
This paddle board can support riders up to 265 pounds (lbs). you could easily have two people ouse this paddle board at the same time, or take your pooch out for a paddle. Yoga is also an option.
The marketing spiel notes that his paddle board can be inflated in less than 5 minutes. Unfortunately, the Goplus 11′ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boarding Package does not come with a duel action pump like some other paddle boarding packages, so expect to spend a bit longer pumping this board up to 15 psi (the instructions say 10 psi, but from experience, you’d be best to inflate another 5 psi for a fully rigid inflatable paddle board).
The center fin is held to the board with a flat plastic pin, which makes it easy to remove when deflating and transporting.back to menu ↑
The Goplus 11′ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boarding Package comes with pretty much everything you’d need to get get started paddling immediately. The package includes:
- lightweight aluminum paddle
- Single action pump
- Travel backpack
- Repair kit
- removable fin
- EVA textured foam deck pad
- 4 point mounted bungee system
The adjustable aluminum paddle can be used by users 5’4″ through to around 6″3″. Unfortunately it doesn’t float very well, but a good tip is to get a swimming/pool noodle, chop about a foot off it, and slide down the paddle pole. Now, if you drop the paddle, it will float.
Everything that comes as part of the paddle boarding package can fit in the travel backpack, which makes it great for transporting to and from the water. This also makes it great to store in the garage, or for those in urban living conditions, the back of the cupboard.
There’s a handle at the nose of the board, which allows you to “drag” the board along the waters edge. Please note this is not recommended when on land (including sand), as you may damage the underside of the inflatable paddle board.back to menu ↑

Goplus 11′ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boarding Package Summary
The Goplus 11′ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boarding Package is inexpensive compared to other similar iSUP packages, but doesn’t feel “cheap” in quality.
With many redeeming qualities, this paddle board is definitely worth a closer look if you’re new to paddle boarding, or need an iSUP for the holiday house (or to even store in the boot of the car).
