Jimmy Styks Puffer
11'2" x 31" x 5.9"
Inflatable SUPs are a great option for camping trips, boating and riders with limited transport/storage space. Extremely durable drop-stitch construction allows the Puffer to maintain unrivaled stability and rigidity.
The incredible rigidity of drop-stitch fabric
Based on the construction materials and techniques of military-grade inflatable boats, iSUPs are constructed of nylon and PVC. The drop-stitch core consists of a top and bottom fabric layer held together by an array of nylon 'tethers'. The strength of the tethers within the structure allow the cavity to hold high levels of pressure while maintaining form and rigidity. The drop-stitch structure is the encased in double layers of seam-welded PVC. The result is a remarkably stiff and light collapsible board that can be taken anywhere.
Jimmy Styks SUP Anatomy
When deciding on a SUP, choosing a board with adequate volume can be the difference between a board that glides smoothly on the surface versus one that just sinks! Selecting a board with proper volume is influenced by two key variables, rider weight and skill level. The recommended rider weight chart above lists our models by various rider weights (in pounds) at a beginner/novice skill level. Riders at a more advanced skill level may be capable of paddling boards below their weight tier.
The rail curve, or board shape, affects the turning capabilities of the board. A curvier shape will generate a tighter turning radius with less stability, whereas a straighter shape will produce greater stability with less maneuverability.
Rocker refers to the upward 'bending' of the nose and tail when lying the board flat. Boards have varying degrees of rocker depending on the board type. A flatter rocker will increase glide on still water while an increased rocker will produce optimal planing on wind chopped water. Boards with greater nose rocker will be more forgiving on wave and vertical entry, but will be slower and more unstable on flat water. In general, boards with a lot of nose and tail rocker are used for wave riding rather than cruising.
Coastal Cruiser SUP
Cruisers are designed for general all-around performance in most water environments. A typical cruiser is 10’0” to 12’6” in height and 29-32” in width. Cruiser shapes follow minimal arc along the rail for greater stability. Generally, cruisers are either designed with ocean or flat-water performance in mind. Ocean or Coastal cruisers feature greater nose and tail rocker for planing wind-chopped water whereas flat-water cruisers have a flatter bottom for ease of glide.

This is the 2017 model which is an upgrade and is larger then the previous model.
If you're looking for a SUP I highly recommend this one.
The SUP was found to be very stable and extremely float worthy. It tracked well for a big board. The foam foot pads kept my feet from slipping at all. It was easy to carry to the water thanks to the well-placed handle and very light. The paddle worked perfectly and had a good stiff catch in the water. Overall the maiden voyage was better then expected.
It's disappointing because I have an inflatable kayak that I've been using for 8 years now--through kids and class III whitewater--and it's held up astonishingly well. I'd love to feel like a paddleboard would do the same, but my fear is that the board itself would last but all the other pieces would have to be replaced long before that kind of timeframe. I wish the maker would charge $15 or $25 more and make those all better quality up front.
tracks very well. I love the colors and the shape. It is not that slippery. And the weight
limit is around 270 lbs. So both male and female can easily use it.
As for a beginner this is a good. The instructions are very simple and it comes
with everything you need. If you have never had one then this is very affordable
to at least try it and see if you like it. Best thing you don't need a car rack. This fits
in just about any car.
At first I thought it was too heavy (around 26 lbs) but looking at other inflatables boards this is a about an average
weight for them. Some are even smaller but heavier. This is not too wide or too narrow. But for yoga it might still be on the narrow
Inflating and deflating is very easy thing to do. All you have to do is putting back in the bag and that is it just like
a camping mattress.
Once in the water, it tracks well and handles good. I have to use more to see about durability. So far so good.
This was really easy to set up and it is really easy to use. I generally use it on flat inland lake and only rarely on lake Michigan. It depends on what is going on.
I like that I can fit it into my car without having to put one of the roof top carriers on it. I have roof top carriers but they are difficult to get things on. Generally I end up needing help. But with this I can just deflate and run off. For me, easy is everything.
