The Glide 02 Angler Inflatable Fishing Board is perfect for anyone who likes to travel but has limited storage space. They can conveniently store this board in a backpack, taking it on their next adventure. This ISUP has an extra-wide and flat bottom for stability.

The inflatable paddle board has comfortable handles on the nose and tail. This allows easy transportation to and from the water. It includes US Style Fin Box, reinforced rails, 4 deck mounts for accessories, and a D-Ring under the nose for towing another stand up paddle board.
