Alpha Stand up Paddle boards are high quality inflatable boards, designed to glide and go on adventures. You don’t have to go far to push your limits. Stand up paddling is a way to explore your environment, near or far, in a different way. The Alpha is a lightweight, rigid and very durable inflatable SUP with a heat-welded deck and hull (Fusion technology), and 3 layers of PVC on the rails. The Fusion construction optimises weight and rigidity to meet any challenge and adventure.
The use of the best dropstitch on the market and professional RIB PVCs make our SUPs the strongest inflatable boards on the market.
Again this year we have redesigned the boards to make them atypical, original and unique. We’ve put the emphasis on adventure and the thirst for freedom, with a design inspired by the isobaric weather maps used by sailors and skippers who explore the open sea.
Fusion technology is a primary step in the construction of the board. The top part of the dropstitch PVC (dense polyester filaments) is fused (not glued) with the second PVC layer. The benefits of this high-tech technology are that the overall weight of the board is reduced by almost 2 kg (20%). It also improves the visual appearance of the board, making it smoother and more pleasant to the touch. It also increases the longevity of the product by avoiding problems of delamination, which can be found on some brands. Finally, it increases the stiffness of the board by almost 30%, thus avoiding over-inflating the boards. We recommend an inflation around 15 – 17 PSI maximum. We are the only brand on the market to offer three layers on the rails to increase stiffness and eliminate air leakage problems. This technology guarantees you the most reliable product on the market. It is the best value for money in the high-end inflatable Stand-Up Paddle market. The choice of materials, their assembly and the ergonomics of the user are the object of all our attention to facilitate your comfort. This is why we have redesigned the eva-pads in a diamond pattern for a better feel of the board under your feet.
