SAN DIEGO, California - Sure, paddle boarding is a great way to have fun, get exercise, and be out in nature. All you need is a board and a paddle and you can create your own adventure. But, what if you want to add to your experience and bring even more fun into it? (Yes, that’s possible!) There are tons of tools, gadgets and accessories that can be paired with paddle boarding to make your experience even better. Here, we’ve listed a few accessories for your SUP that are an awesome addition to your everyday paddles.
1. Fusion Stereoactive
The STEREOACTIVE (pictured above) is the world’s first portable floating watersports stereo, designed for the challenge of life on the water. The combination of world-class industrial design, high quality music reproduction, intelligent functionality and an extensive feature set has resulted in a rugged portable stereo that is prepared for anything. Sources include Bluetooth, radio tuner, USB and iPhone & Android audio playback and charging. Let STEREOACTIVE provide the soundtrack to your next SUP Adventure.
Constructed of recycled, reinforced polycarbonate, the ConnexSUP system is a set of plugs that are installed into the deck with 3 interchangeable inserts: Standard Tie-Down, Threaded insert, and a Camera Mount. All of the parts in the system are flush with the deck so there’s no interference with the fancy footwork sometimes needed to counter wind, chop, wake, gators or just about anything needing a quick adjustment.
The main plug is designed with internal splines that enable you to set each insert at up to 8 different positions, one every 45 degrees. This is a critical feature for any kind of journey, from the weekday morning search for the perfect Instagram post to the 7-day trek well off the grid, allowing for ideal flexibility in packing gear, positioning GPS or training devices, or your camera for that perfect shot.
3. Bluedrive Power Fin
Want to feel a bit more speed while on your SUP? The folks at Aqua Marina have an awesome detachable fin that gives you an extra boost. Whether you’re out for a long paddle and need a bit of extra help or you just want to go a bit faster, the Bluedrive Power Fin is so fun!
4. BOTE Travelink Carry System

The Travelink™ system from BOTE was designed to get you to your paddling spot more easily, comfortably and without 'dead arm' syndrome. By simply clicking in the Travelink™ adjustable carry strap to the latch points in the rail of the board, you remove all weight from your hands and carry the board more safely and ergonomically with your shoulders and back.
5. SUPerior Sensor

Compatible with and easily installed on all paddle and board types, the system will help you achieve your goals whether they be reaching the podium or strengthening your core.
