The SHUBU Raven is my favorite board in the quiver right now. It's a super versatile and fun platform that works perfect for the type of paddling found here in Colorado. This is the one board that's always in my truck ready to go.
There are many big advantages of owning an inflatable stand up paddle board.
Durability: sticks, rocks, and docks are a non-issue. Running rivers, wear and tear from getting on and off the beach or a dock, setting your board on less than ideal surfaces... no problem!
Storage: Finding a place for your board is one of the bigger challenges of our sport. I love being able to deflate and put my gear in the corner of the garage or safely locked inside my truck, out of the sun and public eye.
Fun & Versatility:
I find my self playing around, trying new stances/ paddle strokes, and pushing my limits often on inflatables. They make for a great first board, and you will never outgrow the benefits of owning one (or two or three).
At 12'6" long and 30" wide, the Raven has impressive glide, and is super stable whether paddling forward or making quick maneuvers back on the tail. The rocker profile fits nicely in the waves created in windy conditions, making this board a great option for a downwind run.
Whether enjoying an easy lap around the lake with family, or charging downriver, I always feel comfortable and prepared on the SHUBU Raven.
