Curious to know which boards and paddles we will use for the SUP Abruzzo Coastline cruising trip?
The Crusing Inflatable SUP Boards
We wanted high-performance and technical boards, which will allow us in June 2021 to cross the 130kms of the SUP Abruzzo Coastline in a week. We wanted stable but at the same time fast boards and also suitable for non-professionals like us. We wanted inflatable boards, more easily transportable despite their generous cruiser size. We wanted aesthetically beautiful boards, which made us look like Pro! We wanted an Italian brand.
If you haven’t understood it yet, we have chosen as technical sponsor the RRD, Roberto Ricci Design brand, who immediately believed in our project, giving life to a winning combination !!!
The Inflatable Boards proposed
Thanks to the advice of Paolo Marconi (qui l’intervista) from the RRD team and our Emidio Rossi, we decided to evaluate three boards from the Perfo and Hi Perfo collections: the Air Race, Air Cruiser and Air Tourer, all three suitable for cruising. and long journeys, but each with a different vocation. We will choose our boards and paddles right now, so that we will have time to test them this winter and adapt in time for June. We will of course review our tests, so Stay Tuned!

The suggested Paddle
Which paddle to choose for our company? With a performance board, an equally powerful paddle must be used to make the most of it. As Paolo Marconi teaches us, a good technique and a good paddle are very important, especially for cruising outings where the movement of the paddling is repeated for several hours for several days. A good paddle dampens vibrations and makes movement efficient. This is the model we are evaluating: Dynamic Performance.
*In Hawaiian it means “Move Forward”.
Well, WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO DO IT WITH OUR INFLATABLE BOARDS!
In the meantime, we enjoy the official video of the RRD on its Air SUPs 🤤🤤
