You might really like stand up paddling as a friendly sport, but what If you can practice it with many friends on one inflatable stand up paddle board? Actually; what if you can paddle with luxury? Embrace yourselves people; the supersize ISLE Airtech® Megalodon is here to stun you and make you feel really small.
ISLE® never fails at providing us with everything that is of great quality, thus, the Airtech Megalodon is a monster if you ask me; the sight of it alone is capable of fascinating you.
The Megalodon is 15 feet tall, and 50 inches wide, do you know what does that mean? It means that you can take up to 6 people with you on board. To begin with, this inflatable stand up paddle board is made for team work activities; it’s too big for anyone to handle on their own, and even if you think you can, it’ll be quite demanding. Inflating this monster and bring it out on the beach is always to impress everyone around; black and yellow combinations are usually to get a lot of attention, and with a size like this, you’ll own the water.
I can’t think of anything else that would put me and my crazy pack together this summer; the Megalodon is 8 inches thick, it’ll carry all of us and allow us to take all the food we need with us because we really love to eat or drink something in the water for a break. For that you’ll find 4 D-rings that are connected with a bungee cord over enough space to carry more than you could imagine. Also, like one of my friends does, you can use extra bungee cords or any available strips to attach more items to any of the 13 reinforced rail-mounted carry handles along both rails. The carry handles are mainly made to facilitate the group transportation of the board; however, they’re strong enough if you needed them for something else.
This board is extremely rigid and stable; it feels like you’re standing on a solid one, and even when you’re paddling you could still stand firm and tall on board. In fact, this board is too rigid and solid for an inflatable one, and the best part about it is jumping to the water after you’re done with paddling; it’s impressively stable and sturdy.
Additionally, the board is almost completely covered with a diamond-groove pattern that is designed to resist slippage and make sure that your feet are comfortable; you can paddle with all of your strength and still maintain great balance on the board. Further, the Megalodon is engineered with military-grade drop stitch and it is reinforced with dense, layered PVC that guarantees a great deal of durability.
This board is made to be strong; you can take it out on a discovery trip with your friends carrying everything you need on board, or you can just have a fancy sunbath… it has a lot to offer, you can even have a group yoga session if you wanted.
As for those of you who are interested in surfing, the Megalodon can do well but not great, because inflatable stand up paddle boards are obviously made for stand up paddling. Yet, this board comes with 3 large removable fins that make cruising the water faster and smoother in flat water or small waves.
To conclude, the Megalodon comes with 4 travel paddles that are adjustable to fit different paddlers. In my opinion, the fact that such an inflatable board does exist is just brilliant; paddling alongside with your friends and having a blast on the water is just perfect for summer.
Last but not least, great power comes with great responsibility; the Megalodon is a big a buddy (50 pounds), so you should expect that you’ll need a little more effort to store it, pack it, and to carry it around especially when it’s inflated, however, I assure you it’s nothing that hard or impossible. Even if it’s going to take more space to store than the other smaller stand up paddle boards, you can easily fold it up and put it under your bed or whatever space available.
