The Portager is made to move.

This is our most popular board because of its portability and versatility. It is the highest performing inflatable paddle board on the market that has a very comparable feel to our rigid model, called the Loon.

Quick Facts:

  • Board dimensions inflated: 11'6'' x 33'' x 6'' and feels extremely rigid.
  • Time to inflate: ~5-7 minutes with included dual action hand pump.
  • Board dimensions deflated: 33'' x 10'' in diameter roll, 37'' x 18'' x 10'' when in bag with all accessories.
  • Time to deflate: ~2-3 minutes to get it from fully inflated to back in the bag.
  • Board weight: 21 lbs -  this not a typo, it is our lightest board.
  • Board capacity: Up to 350 lbs
  • Durability: This board is kid proof, dog proof, rapid proof and is very stiff.

Will this board work for me?

Yes. This board is a true one-size fits all. Because the Portager is inflatable, it is very buoyant and fits a very wide range of paddlers. From young children to 350+ lb adults, the board will have the control, stability and balance to support all types.

We don't make the Portager shorter, because the 11'6'' length is a key element on the boards performance.  And we don't make bigger boards, because the Portager already has a 350 lb capacity.

Increase Strokes Per Side (SPS):

Tracking straight and increasing strokes per side (SPS) is a key performance factor for anyone paddling flat water. Where most boards (especially round-nose inflatable) average 1-4 SPS, the Portager achieves 15-25 SPS. This allows paddlers to build up more speed and achieve a much more rhythmic paddling experience.

Inflatable boards naturally sit higher on the water, which can have a negative impact on the boards tracking performance. We've counteracted this by adding in the must-have displacement hull nose shape. This nose cuts the water and increases the boards speed and tracking performance.

At 33'' wide and 6'' thick, it still remains extremely buoyant and stable. Width is the biggest factor linked to stability, and 33'' wide is wider than most boards. Other brands make 4'' thick paddle boards, these often have the "bow" in the middle effect and feel less rigid than the 6''.

Product Features:

  • Extreme rigidity and buoyancy - made from the highest grade, 1.2mm drop-stitch PVC in a 6" thickness.
  • Compact storage - packs into small backpack.
  • No over inflation - a built in pressure regulator monitors pressure, so over inflation 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 joining system, ensuring world class rigidity. It feels like a rigid board on the water.
