Sneak Preview: New Airis Hardtop Line of Inflatable SUPs from Walker Bay

Sneak preview! Walker Bay has recently announced a new line of Airis inflatable standup paddle boards – the Hardtop Tour 12.5, Hardtop SUV 11 and Hardtop Stubby 9.

New Airis Hardtop Line of Inflatable Standup Paddle Boards

The Hardtop hybrid design combines Walker Bay’s patented 6″ thick AirWeb construction with RigiDeck non-skid fiberglass steps, providing an inflatable SUP that is stiff, tracks well, and feels firm underfoot while paddling.

Airis Hardtops feature Rigideck fiberglass steps

While each of the three models features bungee attachment points for storing gear, the Hardtop SUV 11 and Stubby 9 also include seat attachments points, allowing sit-down paddling with purchase of an optional backrest. And with a special appeal to fishing folks, the Hardtop SUV 11 comes with rod and tackle box attachment points.
