Paddle North's newest inflatable paddle board. Play maximizes fun on the water, while maintaining our attention to detail and quality. It's extremely well balanced for paddlers up to 250 lbs (works for kids or adults, or combinations of kids/adults, or even dogs - although dogs will require human assistance).
There are four things that can quickly ruin fun with inexpensive inflatable paddle boards:
- Seams fail from heat increasing the air pressure.
- Sharp objects can penetrate thin PVC.
- Cheap accessories can fail on the water.
- Board can be too narrow for proper stability (wider board = increased stability).
The Play is extremely well thought out and designed to overcome these problems. It has a proprietary, built-in pressure regulator that monitors the board's pressure to avoid over inflation. We've developed PVC RAILS that are thicker than our competitors. They are then machine welded (not hand glued) for maximum durability. All of this is backed by our industry-best 4-year warranty.
Bottom line: this board is designed to be fun, durable, and versatile. Oh, and if you live in Minnesota… it’s under 10’, so there’s no need to spend extra time and money registering your new board.

Board dimensions inflated: 9’11'' x 33'' x 6'' & 18 lbs to carry.
Board dimensions deflated: 33'' x 10'' in diameter roll,
Time to inflate: ~3-4 minutes
Time to deflate: ~2 minutes
Board weight: 18 lbs
Board capacity: Supports any size paddler and gear up to 250 lbs. Above 250 pounds, the board's balance gets more difficult

Extreme rigidity and buoyancy - made from the highest grade, 1.2mm drop-stitch PVC in a 6" thickness. The 6'' thickness avoids any bend on the water. Rails and nose are reinforced with GLIDERAIL PVC, providing extra strength to the areas that get banged around the most.
No over inflation - a built in pressure regulator monitors pressure, so over inflating beyond capacity is a thing of the past. This is especially important in warm weather environments where intense heat and sunlight can increase pressure quickly when pulled out of the water.
Universal valve - Halkey-Roberts valves allow any type of air compressor or electric pump to be used. They also self-seal, so there's no race to close it (losing valuable air pressure).
Strengthen up to 18 psi - all seams are built to withstand up to 18 psi with our unique 3-layer seam lamination system. It feels like a rigid board on the water.
Crossover Hybrid - Sit or Stand, you choose. Buy the Kayak Accessory Kit to convert the Play into a kayak formation. Compatible D-rings for Kayak Accessory Kit attachment standard.
Universal Mounts - x2 screw in mounts that work to attach cup holders, fishing rods, camera mounts and more.
Kickstand - Feeling gutsy? Drop a foot back onto the kickstand to do 90-degree on the spot turns.
Tri-Fin Setup - Tracking and performance are at the core of Paddle North's fleet. The Play being the shortest board in the fleet, needed some extra love in the fin department to make up for its smaller size. Three huge fins, clip in using standardized universal fin boxes. Paddle with 1 or all 3.
