Sea of Cortez
Incredibly light, rigid, wonderful glide on the water. Easy to fly with, super tight roll. Don’t wanna be stuck anywhere without this toy! Badfish knows what’s up!
All round SUP!
At first, I was expecting this board to be a bit squirrely considering how light it is...but man, was I wrong! We used it for a few months down in Mexico in variable conditions and it handled remarkably well. It's extremely stable. In fact, my mother in-law who has never stood on a SUP was cranking away off shore with just a bit of practice. And best of all, it was a breeze to load/unload from the top of the truck. I've been eyeing up a few alpine lakes here in the Colorado high-country - now I have a board light enough to make it happen! I would recommend this board for travelers and backcountry SUP'ers who are looking for a high-quality, lightweight board.
SUP in the backcountry, SUP on vacation, SUP everywhere
The Flyweight is a lightweight, easy to set up, enjoyable to use, paddle board with TONS of features. Bring it on the plane, bring it into the backcountry, leave it in your car for when a SUP adventure might strike your fancy. The 18 pounds makes it so easy to travel with. My whole family had a great time using it, and no issues for my mom or 11 year old niece to carry it around. I went in the bay and ocean and the Flyweight stayed stable through it all. HIGHLY recommend this as a SUP everyone can use, and something you can travel with easily.
Best board ever for adventure travel or a simple paddle in your backyard body of water.
If you enjoy travelling with toys but try to keep the weight to a minimum, then I can't imagine a better inflatable SUP to accompany you on your adventures. I took the Flyweight to Costa Rica for 3 weeks and did absolutely everything with it. Paddling small rivers to the sea, enjoying daily cruises within the bays and to offshore islands, exploring reefs and their awesome eco-systems at low tide, surfing, and even a four day self supported trip down the Nicoya coastline. The Flyweight is the ultimate travel companion and handled everything with stability and ease well beyond its weight or size. While not necessarily intended for the open ocean that stability was a welcome surprise when the winds picked up and created a little more chop than I'd hoped for. Along with the performance of the board, its lightweight construction allows for easy carrying - 15 minute walks to and from la playa daily (and sometimes more than once) were a piece of cake. The paddled carry handle is on point. Packing & checking the board, pump and all of my personal effects into one bag was a bonus as well - AND NO EXTRA FEES AT THE AIRPORT :) If you enjoy travelling I can't imagine a more capable board to bring with you for all types of endeavors. As much as it opened up new doors abroad I can't wait to get home to Colorado and see where the next adventure in the backyard awaits. Badfish SUP is truly Shaping Adventure with the Flyweight. Pura Vida y gracias Badfish
Incredibly light and surprisingly stable
Love how light this board is. Paddle a lot of remote lakes and rivers. Having an 18 lb board is a game changer. Can access places I simply couldn’t get to with my 30lb board.
