The standup paddleboard is ideal for water lovers
Ideal for water lovers who don't have enough room in the home or car to store a traditional board, the Samoa inflates in just a few quick minutes, and includes a dry backpack for transport. As a result, you can take the Samoa on a plane, a train, a bus, or even a bike on your way to the ocean. Even better, the Samoa is easy to use for all skill levels yet still provides a stable, comfortable workout. All you need is good balance and a body of water.
The Samoa is built for performance, with an extremely rigid drop-stitch floor and three removable fins that provide consistent tracking. The paddleboard also includes a 4-inch rocker tip to prevent curling, along with a large EVA footpad for grip and comfort. And to assist with setup, the board comes with a high-pressure pump and pressure gauge (the board inflates up to 10 to 12 psi). Other details include a high-pressure spring valve, stainless D-rings ideal for securing small cargo (up to 10 pounds), and a convenient center carrying handle. The Samoa measures 10 feet 10 inches by 2 feet 6 inches and supports up to 250 pounds.

The road from Sevylor's founding in 1948 to its current role as the dominant supplier of a wide range of inflatables--such as kayaks, boats, and towables--is a long one, with plenty of original inventions and innovations along the way. Established in a city suburb of Vitry, France, by electronics engineer Berco Grimbert, Sevylor originally built electrical accessories, with a sideline business dedicated to using its high-frequency welding machines to manufacture PVC consumer goods. The first inflatable to receive rave notice was a small bathtub called the Dou Dou. Perfect for postwar France, the inflatable tub was portable, convenient, practical, easy to clean, durable, and, best of all, affordable. After moving to the picturesque Alsatian village of Buhl, the company expanded into developing valves, pumps, boats, inflatable pools, and a variety of water toys. In the ensuing years, Sevylor first developed a PVC that had "memory"--meaning it could return to its original shape regardless of temperature--and then made history by releasing an inflatable pool mattress with a headrest and circular pockets. In 1986, the company invented the Ski Bob, a real turning point in the evolution of the towables business. Today, Sevylor's innovative designs include tenders, hunting and fishing boats, specialty boats and kayaks, towables, snow tubes, air beds, pool floats, river tubes, swim and sport rings, and more.

Paddle snapped and bottom half of the paddle sank to the bottom on the 4th day of use.
I have spoken with customer service and E-mailed them pictures as requested per the warranty, and nothing has happened. No response.
It will be easier to buy a new paddle than battle a company that obviously does not care.

This inflatable SUP board is loads of fun. I've taken it out on flat waters (lakes and rivers); it holds up well in slightly choppy waters of Long Island Sound. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Rick Reichert
I received this as a gift. I was thinking of a SUP large enough to support my weight but small enough to surf on. I got this for my B-Day before I finished my research. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Norma Haupt
Easy to inflate, great to ride! Quality item all around. Although, I did have an issue with deflating it using the pump. Doesn't work. Read morePublished 5 months ago by BB
Unfortunately, that was also its last time out. After using it once last summer, I brought it out to the lake a few weeks ago only to find that the valve was malfunctioning. Read morePublished 5 months ago by ShayLOON
