A quick lesson on paddleboards, in case you're not familiar with them. They typically come in one of three different construction types: inflatable, epoxy or soft top. Epoxy and soft top boards are more like a surfboard — they're hard and heavy. But an inflatable paddleboard feels hard and sturdy like an epoxy board once it's blown up, and it's much, much easier to tote onto and off of the beach. This is why inflatable boards are usually the preferred board type of choice with people who paddleboard recreationally.
The Retrospec board is an inflatable board that weighs just 17 pounds when it's inflated, making it easy for you to carry around and maneuver in the water. It's also 10 feet long can hold up to 275 pounds, with a textured deck to help you get solid footing.
The whole thing is built from durable PVC and feels hard once it's fully inflated. Speaking of inflating...this board comes with its own high pressure dual-action pump, removable fins, leash, adjustable paddle and carrying bag. There's even a waterproof phone case! Choose from one of five eye-catching colors.
The Retrospec has plenty of fans who rave about how easy it is to use this board. "If you're anything like me and think, 'Inflatable paddleboard? How does that even work?!' Trust me, once it is inflated it is like a wooden board," said a happy customer. "I could knock on it and the neighbors would check their front door."
A fellow fan said this board's small deflated size is a massive perk. "I love paddleboarding, but I live in a small cottage at the beach and don't have the room to store a bulky board when I'm not using it so I've considered an inflatable board for awhile," they wrote. "My concern was that it wouldn't be firm enough to be stable or that it would be easily damaged, but this crazy-cool paddleboard has eased my fears. I took it to the beach yesterday and it was great. I put it in a wagon and wheeled it across the street to the beach where I inflated it. ...When deflated, this board rolls up to about the size of two sleeping bags stacked end on end, so it fits easily in a coat closet. We put ours in the linen closet and it fit on the floor under the shelves with some free space left over on the floor."
Again, this sale is just for today. Don't miss your chance to own your own paddleboard at a sweet $70 discount!
