The 2022 Badfish iSK8 features the Patented Wiki Rail Tail creating a clean release, improving rail bite and surfing performance. We’d spent 10 years building the world’s most innovative river surfing boards before we applied that experience to an inflatable surfboard. The iSK8 is the perfect board for someone learning to surf river waves, but don’t mistake it for a pool toy: this board was built to perform. Pack it on your next raft trip and hunt up a hidden wave, or just let the kids play in the eddy. The iSK8 is a whole new tool for fun!

SURFING THE CHAMA IN NEW MEXICO
I love my new iSK8 Wiki! Before I owned it, I went to the Abiquiu wave here in New Mexico, which isn't a huge wave, a couple of times, attempting to ride a too-small hand-me-down fiberglass board and trying out the boards of other river surfers. I tried a guy's iSK8 and loved it before I even learned how to pop up or skate into the wave standing up. I fricken loved how stable it was, comfortable to lay on, and the overall size and weight. After trying his, I ordered mine and have put in three sessions on it. There were a couple of dudes who seemed to turn their noses up at the fact that it's inflatable, while being reluctant to let me try their glass boards (because I might ding em...) To them, I say: At least my girlfriend isn't inflatable! And I hauled five people, two inflatable boats, paddles and gear, and my dog in my mini-van, and my folded-up iSK8 didn't take up too much room. I love the durability and despite being "inflatable," it maintains its rigidity and performs awesomely.
I got the ISK8 a few seasons ago as my first riverboard and had a blast learning how to surf on it. The ISK8 very durable board I never had any problems with it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun board that is also a little easier to handle than a hard board.
Great Board for Learning
I got the ISK8 a few seasons ago as my first board and had a blast learning how to surf on it. I never had any problems with the board and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun but easy-to-grasp board. This last summer I started surfing hardboards but will always keep the ISK8 for when I take friends to surf for the first time.
These are rad
My 11 year old, 13 year old, and I love the board. We have because 2 is better than 1....and 3 will be perfect.
The Sk8 is Great!
The Sk8 has allowed me to progress from boogie boarding on a wave to surfing in style.
