ISUP 14’x 28″ Linear
As close to a hard SUP board you can get.
Yster ISUP 14’x 28 ″ Linear is an inflatable SUP board designed for speed, stability and directional stability and ideal for long distance paddling and touring. A long paddle board provides longer water contact which in turn gives better glide and directional stability.
From a engineering point of view, it is challenging to make a long, narrow inflatable paddle board, yet longitudinally rigid. We have solved this dilemma by integrating rail stringers in Dyneema®. In plain text, this means that we have placed a strips of the extremely strong Dyneema® on each side of the board. Since Dyneema® is a polymer with very low elongation, this means that the strips prevent the board from bending longitudinally, which means that the board becomes very rigid. In combination with a maximum inflation pressure of 26 psi, Yster ISUP 14’x 28 ″ Linear is as close to a hard SUP board as you can get. Although it is designed to withstand 30 psi, we recommend a maximum inflation pressure of 26 psi to allow variations in ambient temperature.
Yster ISUP 14’x 28″ Linear comes with a large 9″ flat water fin. Since the horizontal distance of the fin is larger than a conventional surf board fin, it reduces the pivoting of the board while paddling. This means that the board will stay on course and that you do not need to switch paddling side as often, which in turn results in a higher speed. The difference is really significant compared to traditional all-round ISUPs that typically gets carried away by chop and wind.
Bungee cords both in the front and back give plenty of room for packing or if you just want to free up your hands to pick up your mobile phone – just slide the blade of the paddle under the bungee cords. In addition, there are passenger handles with integrated packing loops on the front deck – perfect for passengers and to strap bulky cargo, e.g. tents and sleeping bags.
Yster’s professional backpack with rubber wheels in sturdy 1680D Nylon has an outer compartment for pump and hose and side compartment perfect for a three-piece paddle. The top flap of the bag has a rubberized surface so that you can use it as a changing mat when unfolded. The center compartment of the back pack has enough space for both the board and some extra packing. Since the backpack is water resistant, simply bring your belongings in the backpack. You do not need to worry about leaving shoes and pump behind.
Yster ISUP 14’x 28 ″ Linear is compatible with the accessory Yster SUP Carry strap & Grab handle so that you can carry the SUP board as a shoulder bag when inflated.
