Body Glove Navigator Plus

Price: $999 Build: Inflatable
Skill: Beginner Use: All-Around
Weight: 22.12 lbs Sizes: 10'6"

About the board:This board is hands down one of the best inflatable standup paddle board models for 2019. The construction is very strong with reinforced rails and stringer and feels stiff. This inflatable has the perfect amount of rocker so it glides incredibly well for an inflatable. The board is also very stable with the square tail helping add to that stability as you cruise along. The board features some really nice add on's as well with a comfortable handle that is nice when carrying the board but it also features as a paddle holder when you want to be hands free. The graphics are beautiful and have a really nice color coordination that is attractive to both guys and gals. The board also comes with a full setup, a paddle, leash and pump and a nice portable carry bag. The paddle blade also has nice graphics adding a nice touch to the overall package. Read more HERE.

Body Glove Oasis

Price: $999 Build: Inflatable
Skill: Beginner Use: Yoga
Weight:  24 lbs Sizes: 10'

About the board:At $999 this inflatable is simply one of the most beautiful mid-price point inflatables that you can buy. The graphics are gorgeous and have a very thoughtful coordination of color scheme all throughout the board. The construction is just remarkable. In fact, it’s quite surprising that at this price point you can find a carbon stringer with reinforced rails, comfortable handles on the nose and center of the board. The board is fairly stable. It’s not the most stable on the market but is fairly stable and pretty average in terms of stability and it would make for an incredible gift for your wife, girlfriend, daughter, etc. who is looking for a board in the yoga space and wanting to have fun on a board that is at an affordable price point that looks good.

Body Glove Crusader

Price: $1,999 Build: Inflatable
Skill: Beginner Use: Group
Weight: 76 lbs Sizes: 15'

About the board:If you’re on the market for a group SUP that gears towards surfing, check out the Crusader from Body Glove. The Crusader can fit up to 6 people (1,0000 lbs) and is clearly a very stable board due to its 66 in. width. The board is very difficult to carry alone due to its size but with a few people able to chip in carrying is easy. Retailed at $1,999 the Crusader is an excellent choice for a surf-specific group SUP. Read more HERE.
