Bluefin SUP Reviews

Bluefin is a company that started off selling hardshell kayaks but found opportunity elsewhere with the booming inflatable paddle board craze. They first started getting a stronghold in the UK, and then Europe. Now they are one of the most widely distributed SUP manufacturers in the world!

Bluefin paddle boards offer some of the highest PVC densities offered at a more than affordable price. Below we will be going through the Bluefin paddle board company and talk about all the boards that they offer. What do we like about Bluefin and what do we not like? Below we detail all.

Bluefin Cruise Jr (Rated for Kids) 


  • Dimensions: 8’ X 29” X 5” 
  • Materials: 1000 Denier PVC
  • Weight: 22 Lbs
  • Maximum Capacity: 176 Lbs

Who It’s For:

The Bluefin Cruise jr is for… Guess who? Kids! In fact, this board was rated as our number 1 pick for Best Kids SUPs. This was down to a few things. 

  • The materials that the paddle board is made of
  • The accessories that come with the board
  • The 5 Year warranty and good return period

This is a great SUP for those between the ages of 5 and 9. Although you can go above the 9-year mark if your child is small. The Bluefin Cruise Jr can also be used for smaller-built folks although, even then its stability will not be the best. Especially from the rest of the SUPs in this list. 

On-Water Performance

In terms of pure stability, it’s a great board for smaller kids. But definitely below the average of anything else on this list. If a person of my height and weight (6’1 180 Lbs) tried to use this board I would probably end up in the drink a few times!

The tracking and the speed are compromised due to its shorter length. But its fin setup helps the board not be a complete banana in the water.  This is usually how it goes with the smaller boards 7-9’ paddle boards though. Especially compared to adult SUPs

One thing that this SUP will do exceptionally well is maneuverability. This bodes especially well for younger kids who would have a more challenging time maneuvering the bigger adult boards. 

Board Features and Design

One of the things I really liked about this board was the fact that it came with a kayak hybrid seat. This is especially handy for kids who are new to the sport of SUP or are graduating from sitting at the nose of the adult boards. 

As they get their sea legs ready they will most likely need to take more breaks. So if you have the kayak seat set up they can take a break from that and learn kayak paddling techniques. 

Other notable features about this SUP include a bungee storage area at the front, a towing D ring as well as a stomp pad to help your child with pivot turns. 


  • The SUP is affordable
  • Comes with a Kayak conversion kit
  • Great for kids around the games of 5-9
  • Very maneuverable


  • Board may be too heavy for your child to carry to the waterline
  • If you are an adult I would most likely pass on this SUP

Bluefin Cruise Series 10’8”, 12’ & 15’ SUPs (All Around Pick)


Cruise 10’8”10’8″ X 33″ X 6″33 Lbs287 Lbs1000 Denier Exo Surface Laminate PVC & Pro Weave Drop Stitch
Cruise 12’12’ X 33” X 6”34 Lbs309 Lbs1000 Denier Exo Surface Laminate PVC & Pro Weave Drop Stitch
Cruise 15’15 X 35” X 6”35 Lbs530 Lbs1000 Denier Exo Surface Laminate PVC & Pro Weave Drop Stitch

Who It’s For:

The Bluefin Cruise series is primarily for folks of all different weights and sizes who want a paddle board that blends reliability with affordability. The people who buy the Cruise series usually come in two different categories.

  • They want an Upgrade from a previous SUP
  • They are new to paddle boarding

One of the best things about the Bluefin Cruise series is that they have a board for just about everyone. The 10’8 board is great for people that are about 6’1 and below who want a recreational craft that introduces them to the water. 

The 12’ board makes for a more stable board for bigger folks and is a better board for longer distance traveling thanks to its longer length. 

Finally, the 15’ is purely for tandem paddle board reasons where you and your family can get onto the same board and explore. 

On-Water Performance

The Bluefin Cruise will be the jack of all trades board in the Bluefin line-up. It won’t be the fastest, won’t track the best, won’t be the most maneuverable and won’t be the most stable. But it blends a lot of these things pretty well. 

The board will be stable for almost anyone, which is something you always look for in an all-around SUP.  In terms of pure value for what you get, I would say the Bluefin Cruise is the best pick not just in the Bluefin lineup but with inflatable paddle boards in general. 

Board Features and Design

The Bluefin Cruise series is not only one of the best value boards in the Bluefin line-up but I would also argue that it provides more value than the majority of paddle boards out there. 

All Bluefin Cruise models come with a kayak conversion seat and paddle, fiberglass paddle, pump, and a decent-quality bag on top of the single fin. All of this coupled with its price tag makes this a great board to start off with. The 5-year warranty is just the icing on the cake for confidence. 

See Our Full Bluefin Cruise 10’8″ Review here!


  • One of the best Entry Level SUPs out there
  • One of the best value per dollar SUPs available
  • Board is a great pick for beginners
  • Kayak hybrid kit is a great add-in
  • Board is made well
  • At least one of the boards should fit just about anyone


  • The Cruise is heavier than a lot of SUPs out there these days
  • The package weight is a bit hefty

Bluefin Cruise Carbon Series 10’8”, 12’ & 15’ SUPs (Premium All Around Pick)


Cruise Carbon 10’8”10’8 X 32.5” X 6”35 Lbs286 LbsFRS carbon composite rail, 1000 Denier Exo Surface Laminate & Pro-Weave Drop Stitch
Cruise Carbon 12’12’ X 32” X 6”38 Lbs385 LbsFRS carbon composite rail, 1000 Denier Exo Surface Laminate & Pro-Weave Drop Stitch
Cruise Carbon 15’15’ X 35” X 6”35 lBS530 lBSFRS carbon composite rail, 1000 Denier Exo Surface Laminate & Pro-Weave Drop Stitch

Who Its For:

Probably one of the first things you are asking yourself is “What’s the difference between the Cruise and the Cruise Carbon Series?”. Simply put the Cruise carbon is Bluefin’s higher quality, better constructed SUP Brother. The biggest difference is the rigidity and pure performance compared to the regular Cruise line-up. 

So while the price tag will be higher there are a good amount of improvements with this series. Perhaps the biggest is the dual inflation chambers that add another level of rigidity to this SUP. It’s also a better board to paddle longer distances with as it has an extra row of D rings to keep more belonging with you onboard. 

On-Water Performance

Upon standing on this board compared to the regular Cruise SUP you will feel the extra stability due to the Air Duo chamber provided with the Cruise Carbon. This will allows for the board to be more streamlined on the bottom of the SUP allowing for a slightly better clip and tracking

If you are a bit of an on-water performance geek like me, take a look at the carbon fiber paddle and the US fin box. This allows you to have more strokes per hour due to the lighter-weight paddle. The US fin box will allow you to swap fins depending on what environment you are putting the board in.

For long-distance paddling, I’d recommend a touring fin to allow you to keep a straighter paddling line. For shallow environments that require more maneuverability, you can attach a river fin as well. 

Board Features and Design

The Cruise Carbon features 4 rows of bungee deck webbing. One at the front and one at the rear. This gives you ample space to bring things like speakers, dry bags, or even a change of clothes. 

The board’s air duo construction also allows the board to be more steady under a heavier load. Making it a good all-around/ touring hybrid board for those longer-day paddles. This will give you a smoother ride with less bouncing. Especially when you encounter some chop or swells. 

See Our Full Bluefin Cruise Carbon 10’8″ Review here!


  • Comes with higher quality accessories
  • One of the stiffest boards out there
  • Has a US fin box
  • Board has good stability and rigidity
  • Aur Duo system is genius in my opinion


  • Heavier than the Cruise series
  • Not particularly cheap for an all-around board
  • I personally wish they put more deck webbing onboard

Bluefin Sprint (Light Weight Touring Pick)


  • Dimensions: 14’ X 30” X 6” 
  • Materials: 1000 Exo Surface Laminate PVC, Pro Weave Drop Stitch
  • Weight: 29 Lbs
  • Maximum Capacity: 418 Lbs

Who It’s For:

The Bluefin Sprint is a pure touring beast for those paddlers with a more intermediate to advanced skill-set. The Sprint has a relatively high weight capacity and a good amount of deck rigging on it making it a great candidate for a day or multi-day touring board with 4 rows of bungee deck rigging at the front and 2 in the rear. 

You can use this SUP in many different environments as long as you have some paddling experience. Places like lake, coastal, and even bigger river tours are all within reach with this SUP. Its 30” width makes it feel a bit more stable compared to other shorter-width 28” touring SUPs

On-Water Performance

The Bluefin Sprint will be among the best tracking boards in the Bluefin lineup thanks to its 14’ length and its slender body. This allows you to paddle on one side for a good amount of time before switching it up. As with tracking, the Speed of this board will be among the best in the bluefin line-up. This board may even have the best acceleration out of the bunch due to its lighter-weight frame. 

But where Speed and Tracking are the big pluses the board will be more difficult to maneuver. But thankfully the Bluefin Sprint, like other boards has a kick pad that allows you to do pivot turns. To be honest it won’t pivot as well as a board that is something like 11’ but it can be done with a bit of practice. 

Board Features and Design

Something that stands out with the Sprint series is the fact that it has 4 rows of bungee deck webbing at the front. Specifically designed for adding drybags, and waterproof backpacks. At the back, you can fit a small cooler or speaker as well. 

One of the things we liked about the Sprint series is the fact that the deck padding takes up about 2/3rds of the board. This is good because as you get more experienced paddling you will start moving around more on the deck to adjust where you want the weight balance. 

The Sprint comes with a snap-on fin, which is good for a quick set-up. Although we would prefer to see a US fin box application on this model so that you can out in different fins from other manufacturers instead of just what Bluefin has. I also wish that the side fins were bigger and were at least snap-on. 


  • Probably the fastest SUP in the Bluefin Lineup
  • Great pick for longer touring trips
  • Has side handles which make the board easier to carry and handle
  • Has Kick pad to aid in turning
  • `18 D rings which allow for a good amount of customization


  • We wish that this USP had a US Finbox setup
  • Not the best SUP for tighter waterways and areas. 

Bluefin Sprint Carbon (Premium Touring Pick)


  • Dimensions: 14’ X 30” X 6” 
  • Materials: 500 denier PVC, Pro Weave Drop Stitch
  • Weight: 33 Lbs
  • Maximum Capacity: 418 Lbs

Who It’s For

As we already know this SUP, like the regular Sprint series, this SUP is meant to travel long distances and be more speedy in the water. But what are the differences between the Sprint and Sprint Carbon series? 

The Sprint Carbon has an Air Duo chamber which is essentially two chambers within the board, similar to the Cruise Carbon. This allows the board to have a bit better performance in terms of not having as much bend in the water. On top of the air duo chamber, you also get carbon side rails which add more rigidity to an already stiff board. This allows you to transfer your energy better into each stroke. 

 On-Water Performance

The Bluefin Sprint Carbon will offer a bit better glide compared to the regular sprint and will allow you to maintain a consistent speed if your paddling skills are up for it. The few pounds higher weight will also allow you to keep momentum when you are against the wind. 

As with the Sprint, the maneuverability and stability will not be as good as other boards. But that’s not the point of the Sprint Carbon board. In terms of tracking its 14’ foot frame glides pretty effortlessly when you are putting in consistent strokes in the water. 

Board and Features

So what do you get with the Sprint Carbon instead of the Sprint? For one this package also comes with a carbon paddle that allows you to paddle for a longer period of time due to its lighter weight. It also features a dual chamber triple action pump which allows you to pump the board both on the upstroke and downstroke. 

A few other small differences are the fact that this SUP, like the Cruise Carbon has a US Finbox system that allows you to swap fins from different manufacturers. The bag included with this SUP also has wheels which in my experience makes traveling with a big bag easier. 


  • Maintains good speed in various different conditions
  • Roller bag is very handy, especially when traveling longer distances on grass/ pavement
  • Lots of bungee deck storage onboard
  • Air Duo chamber and carbon rails maintain stiffness better than Sprint 
  • Maintains good tracking


  • The Board is a heavier package compared to Sprint
  • Fin system does take a bit longer to set-up on Sprint Carbon

Bluefin Rogue (Compact Touring Pick)


  • Dimensions: 12’6” X 30” X 6” 
  • Materials: Monocoque structural laminate with FRS carbon rails
  • Weight: 27 Lbs
  • Maximum Capacity: 374 Lbs

Who It’s For

The Rogue is a hybrid between the Sprint 14 and the Cruise paddle boards in that it meets the in-between size while still focusing on the touring aspect. The Rogue will be a more maneuverable touring SUP in that it has a shorter width. Making it a good choice for a variety of different waterways. 

One of the key differences between the Rogue and the Sprint/ Cruise series is the fact that it is made of Monocoque Structural Laminate material. This makes the board more rigid but also lightweight compared to Bluefin’s normal construction. It’s a similar structure to what Red Paddle uses for their paddle boards. 

On-Water Performance

The Bluefin Rogue will not track as well as the other touring boards in the Bluefin lineup like the Sprint, Sprint Carbon and the Nitro 14. This is due to its shorter length and its slightly wider profile. Your speed will also be slightly lower. Having said this, the Rogue will have better glide in the water compared to most all around paddle boards

Where this board will have an advantage is maneuverability compared to Bluefins touring/ racing SUPs. The shorter length makes it more manageable to maneuver. Which is ideal for coastal paddling or even being in and among mangroves.

Board Features and Design

The Rogue has a few differences compared to Bluefin’s other SUPs. For one it has 3 rows of bungee deck webbing in the front and 3 in the rear. In my personal opinion I prefer this arrangement compared to the 4 at the front and 2 at the rear that the Sprint series has. This allows you to spread weight more equally on the board. On top of this the bungees are also quick release which means you can easily remove them with a pinch of a clip. 

The Rogue also comes with a traditional touring fin which in my mind makes sense. If you are selling a touring style board you should at least include a touring fin! On Top of the MSL technology incorporated into the SUP it also features carbon side rails, like Bluefin uses for its Carbon style boards


  • Comes with touring fin
  • Made with MSL technology which is an improvement
  • Easier to maneuver than Sprint and Nitro
  • Bungee set-up is well thought out
  • I like that the bungees are detachable 
  • Multiple handles and grabbing points


  • Won’t track or glide as well as the Sprint or Nitro series
  • May feel a bit unstable to a beginner paddler

Bluefin Nitro Paddle Board (Speed Pick)


  • Dimensions: 14’ X 28” X 6” 
  • Materials: ESL construction with FRS carbon rails
  • Weight: 27.3 Lbs
  • Maximum Capacity: 419 Lbs

Who It’s For

As you get more into paddle boarding you will probably find yourself branching into a more niche sub activity of stand up paddle boarding. In this case, the Nitro paddle boards specialty is speed and racing! Bluefin has now officially entered into the race board category with famous race boards like Red Paddle, Naish and Starboard. 

This piece of kit (what am I British now?) comes with everything you need to get performance out of the box and into the water. I would say this paddle board is strictly for intermediate paddlers who have good balance or advanced who have entered SUP races before

On-Water Performance

So what’s the difference between the Sprint and the Nitro and which should you choose for what activity? The Nitro will be the least stable board in the Bluefin lineup due to its 28” width. Its slightly pointier profile and 2” less width will make it difficult to stand on until you start getting some paddling momentum. 

The Nitro is better for competitions and shorter paddling stints. This is due to the fact that it only has one smaller 3 rowed bungee deck storage area. The board is fantastic with cutting the water though making you able to plow through waves more efficiently. Just mind your balance!

Board Features and Design

As mentioned above the board is race ready thanks to its included touring fin and 3 piece carbon shaft paddle. Which is something that more race SUPs should include off the bat in my opinion.  Off the bat you have a light set-up that can give you some confidence to be somewhat competitive provided your paddling stroke is on point.

The board also features an expansive deck area that reaches almost to the very edge of the board and takes up about 2/3rds of the board. This allows you to move up and down the board confidently without having to worry about mis stepping on PVC. Especially when you are wanting to do pivot turns to go around buoys in those races. 


  • The fastest SUP in the Bluefin Lineup
  • Has excellent tracking ability 
  • Comes with race fin and carbon paddle
  • Good expansive deck pad area
  • Multiple grab handles handy for sprinting in races


  • Not recommended for beginners unless you like falling a lot
  • No option to have rear bungee deck rigging

Bluefin Aura Paddle Board (Yoga Pick)


  • Dimensions: 10’8” X 36” X 6” 
  • Materials: 1000 denier PVC, Pro Weave Drop Stitch
  • Weight: 23 Lbs
  • Maximum Capacity: 353 Lbs

Who It’s For:

The Bluefin Aura is the premier pick for SUP yoga in this Bluefin lineup. In fact, it was ranked #4 in our Best Paddle Boards for Yoga picks. The Aura is a good Yoga pick thanks to its 36” width which makes it a pretty darn steady board to do a lot of the more tricky yoga positions. 

One of the things SUP Yogis look for is a wide deck pad berth which the Aura has. Another thing that’s unique about this board compared to other Yoga SUPs is the placement of the handles. Most Yoga SUPs still have that middle handle that can get in the way. But the Aura has gotten rid of it and put them on the sides

 On-Water Performance

The Aura is primarily made for one thing and one thing only. That’s stability, which the board can handle very well for most small – medium-sized paddlers. The maneuverability of this board would also be on the higher side of the Bluefin lineup due to its 10’8” length coupled with that longer length

It’s an ample board to paddle recreationally although I wouldn’t try to use it for anything more than day paddling. The extra width will give the board less glide which makes you have to put a slight bit more effort to keep up with your friends with All Around boards. 

Board Features and Design

As mentioned above the board’s rounded shape and wider dimensions make it a solid pick for activities like yoga or even some kinesthetic exercises. 

The package comes with the smart lock fin, double action pump as well as a well-designed bag and single chamber pump. It’s interesting that this package does not come with a kayak hybrid kit, or even any D rings on the sides to attach it onto. I suppose Bluefin really wanted to make this as much of a yoga board as possible!


  • Very good stability
  • No middle handle to get in the way of yoga
  • Board is relatively lightweight compared to other Bluefin SUPs
  • Has a wide deck pad breadth and traction
  • Maneuvers pretty well in the water


  • No kayak hybrid kit that comes with board
  • They could have included a double chamber pump
  • Won’t be the fastest board in the Bluefin lineup

Bluefin Voyage (Fishing Pick)


  • Dimensions: 10’10” X 38” X 8” 
  • Materials: 1000 denier PVC, Pro Weave Drop Stitch
  • Weight: 37 Lbs
  • Maximum Capacity: 397 Lbs

Who It’s For:

Outside of the Mammoth, the Bluefin Voyage edges out the Aura paddle board for most stable single person paddle board in the Bluefin lineup. The board is designed similarly to the NRS heron paddle board/ kayak hybrid craft in that it has those inflatable side walls. The main purpose of this SUP if for fishing and angling. 

On-Water Perfomance

Much like the Aura paddle board, the Bluefin Voyage is built to be stable in the water for those who will be moving around on the board. Movements like casting or even flyfishing demand that the board is steady. And thanks to the two support bladders on the side, the board excels at this. 

As you probably guessed a wider width will make the board not the fastest particular vessel in the Bluefin lineup. If anything it would probably be on the tail end of the speed ratings. While the two side bladders will do wonders for the stability they will add some more drag to the board when you try to get this SUP to a decent clip

Much like the Aura, the maneuverability is pretty good on this board as well. 

Board Features and Design

Of course the biggest difference with this SUP will be those big bladders on the side of the board for that extra stability. Some other unique features include the removable rod holders on the middle- back of the board. This is a great feature for anglers who want a few rods going at once while paddling along the lake. The only downside to them would be if you wanted to use this board for SUP yoga as those and the bulky middle handle will get in the way. 

Instead of including a kayak hybrid seat, the Bluefin company decided to add a cooler to this package as an added bonus. So if fishing really is your deal I would keep a good eye on this SUP. This SUP comes with 12 D rings, including 4 for the kayak conversion kit should you still want to add it.


  • One of the most stable boards in Bluefin Lineup 
  • Fantastic board for fishing 
  • Comes with a cooler 
  • Side bladders will add extra stability
  • Maneuvers well in tighter spots


  • Not a lot of speed with this board
  • Package is very heavy

Bluefin Mammoth (Multi-Person Pick)

  • Dimensions: 18’ X 60” X 8” 
  • Materials: 1000 denier PVC, Pro Weave Drop Stitch
  • Weight: 60 Lbs
  • Maximum Capacity: 1100 Lbs

Who It’s For:

I can tell you one thing the Bluefin Mammoth isn’t for, and that’s a single person! The Mammoth jumps onto the multi-person SUP craze by allowing you to have a total of 1100 lbs on the board. The Mammoth is rated for up to 10 people at once and should be used for recreational adventures in calm water conditions

I would personally not use this SUP for windy days as the board’s bigger surface area will get pushed around more, making it a bit difficult to get back, even if you do have more than 4 paddlers. 

On-Water Performance

One thing I can guarantee you is that this SUP will be as stable as just about anything that you put into the water. Of course with that 60” width comes some sacrifices. Especially in the way of tracking, speed, and even maneuverability. 

Ideally, this SUP should be used by at least 4 people, two on each side to properly propel the board forwards. This SUP would definitely best be used by a group of people at the cabin or even some sort of large family gathering. I reckon you could probably even put a cooler and a small table on this SUP as well. 

Board Features and Design

The Mammoth is clearly designed differently compared to any other SUP on this list. For one, this SUP features 12 carrying handles. And to be honest you will probably need them to haul this massive board to the water! The board weighs 60 lbs so it’s best that you have at least two people lift the board from nose to tail. 

To keep the board tracking properly, the Mammoth features a 5 snap-on fin design so that the board can keep somewhat of a steady course. The tracking of this board will be determined by how well you paddle and where the paddlers are positioned on this board. When paddling try to time your stokes to be closer to the board and synchronized with your family and friends. 


  • Very Stable in the Water
  • Features 5 fins to aid in tracking
  • 13 Handles help with carrying the board to shore
  • Large traction padded area to ensure people don’t slip off


  • Very heavy and awkward to get to shore
  • Tracking with a 60” board will always be an issue
  • Takes a while to set-up and take down board

Bluefin Add-On Accessories

If there is one thing we feel Bluefin may be lacking a bit compared to competitors like Nixy or iRocker it would be the accessories. But still, Bluefin has some good quality accessories to offer. 

  • Hi-Drate Water Bottle
  • Dri-Tide Deck Bag
  • Releash
  • Heatwave
  • Electric Pump
  • Camera
  • Camera Mount
  • Kayak Kit
  • Fins

The most note-worthy in my mind would be the Electric pump, kayak kit (comes with Cruise/ Cruise Carbon models) and the Dri-Tide Deck bag. 

If you’ve read my website before I always advocate getting an electric pump, even if it means spending a bit over your budget to do so. 

Bluefin has two electric pumps available. The E Swift and the Regular model electric pump. Personally, we recommend you spend a little bit of the extra money and get the E swift as it’s designed in-house while the regular pump is designed in China along with other versions of it. 

The Dritide deck bag is a SUP bag designed specifically for paddle boards. It features a waterproof zipper, backpack straps, as well as carry, handles to make the bag easy to carry. There are also mesh side pockets on the sides and a stretch bungee system which allows you to put things you don’t mind getting wet on top. 

Bluefin Customer Service

Bluefin has a Trust Pilot rating of 4.3/ 5 stars which is pretty good fir a big paddle board company that has distribution centers in many corners of the globe. 

Most of the reviews on trust pilot offer some sort of story on how the customer service has been helpful. Including this one:

After Hurricane Ian loss, Joe and Alex Saved the Day!!

Joe and Alex are the Best!! Thanks to amazing customer service, I was able to get replacement paddles for my 12′ Cruise which were swept away during Hurricane Ian. I can’t thank them enough for helping me. Now I can get back out there and enjoy the water. THANK YOU!!!!!

– Nicole (Trust Pilot Review)

Some of the more negative responses had to do with delivery issues, which to be fair is often out of the company’s hands as soon as the product leaves the warehouse. 

Bluefin Warranty and Returns Info

This is an area where Bluefin really goes above and beyond most paddle boards. Especially ones within its price range. Bluefin offers a 5-year warranty on all of their boards! This is a similar warranty that high-quality in-house brands like Red Paddle have for their SUPs. The difference being Red Paddle’s boards are typically more expensive

Paddles, bags, leashes, fin systems, and pumps all come with a 1-year warranty which is usually pretty standard. 

Bluefin also offers a 60-day return policy on Klarna which is a secure Swedish payment service.

Where Are Bluefin Paddle Boards Manufactured?

The Bluefin paddle board company is family owned and operated in West Yorkshire. Although there is not a lot of details as to Where their boards are manufactured. Many SUP manufacturers are rather tight-lipped on this matter. 

What Bluefin do is analyze its manufacturing methods and incorporate recycled materials as much as possible into its SUPs.

Below are some companies that are similar to Bluefin SUPs. 


iRocker has a similar reach around the globe as Blue fin with distribution centers in Canada, USA, Australia, the UK, and Europe (Germany). iRocker’s paddle boards are generally lighter than Bluefin but they do offer higher-tier boards similar to the Carbon series on their Blackfin lineup. iRocker comes with a 2-3 year warranty on their boards. iRocker has recently just launched their Ultra Series which is meant to be a compact travel SUP.

While Nixy may not have the distribution range as Bluefin they do make some really high-quality SUPs that are made of dual fusion PVC and cross-threaded drop stitch material. A lot of their models also have carbon rails as well which helps with the rigidity of their boards. Nixy has some of the best customer service I have encountered while their warranty on their boards is 2 years.
