Re: SUP question

I would leave the pump on the shore as well as the big SUP bag, there are so many boards now on the beach that nobody seems to care for nicking a SUP backpack or a manual pump, tbh.

We used to rent as well and it is so much better to have our own board. And safety vests, the rented vests are manky.

Oh wow, thanks so much for the pic and the link! Is that the exact SUP that you have? We did wonder about the price range, they can cost up to 1k!

Yes we are both pretty fit and do long strenuous hikes but have only done SUP on an hourly rented basis. The plan is to do it more often and got from point A to B. Will PM you tomorrow with some more questions!
Yup, that is the exact model that I bought from Dosenbach. It was Fr399 2 years ago, a basic model but has served me well. Newer and more expensive models have more bells/whistles obviously, which I didn't think justified the extra expenditure. I spent it on an additional lightweight (detachable) kayak paddle so that I can kneel or sit on SUP. You are more nimble and stable when your centre of gravity is lower. I find it more enjoyable too, since I can paddle faster, further and longer with the energy saved. And when I am bored, I can switch to the other paddle and stand up too. I like variety.

Re: SUP question

I think we should stick with leaving and returning to the same spot in the beginning and explore longer routes when we are more used to it. So it sounds like everyone leaves their pump, which is good to know.

I am your kids' weight so I will be looking for boards rated up to 90kg, thanks for that info!

The free pump that comes when you buy a board is light but bulky, but it is possible to carry it on board with you. If you see yourself doing SUP more, then maybe you can buy a more compact pump.


My kids weigh somewhere between 40-45kg and their boards are rated up to 90kg. I bought the electric pump separate. It wasn't cheap but for me really worth it.
