I was looking for a Kayak, but with a trip to Greece only a few weeks away, I thought it might make more sense to invest in an Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board that I could take with me on my travels. After a lot of searching, I opted for the Go Plus Paddle Board (SUP) Inflatable Surfing Board Soft Surf Stand Up Paddle Board which I purchased from Ebay.
The reason that I like this one better is for the extras that it comes with. I have had my Goplus Paddleboard for several years now and what I have discovered is that, whilst it’s fun to stand up on, if I really want a long time out on the water I end up using it as a kayak. I have rowed around islands in Greece using a foldable kayak paddle and had so much fun.
So if you want the fun of a SUP, along with the flexibility (and backrest) that comes with a kayak, I thoroughly recommend this package:
The Bluefin Cruise SUP Package comes in a range of sizes, starting at junior, up to 15 feet, so it really can go wherever you want it to go.
With the kayak conversion kit you get the double ended kayak and a lovely back rest, plus the usual detachable keel, tether, pump and backpack travel bag.
From my experience of taking it abroad, it is worth every penny of the extra carriage costs.
Unboxing The ISup
Below is the time lapse video of me unboxing and inflating the Inflatable Go Plus Paddle Board.
All in all, it was no more than 10 minutes, which I really can’t find anything to complain about. It was incredibly easy.

Portability of the Go Plus ISup
It weighs bagged just under 12 kilogrammes, so will not cost too much to take as extra luggage and is very portable. Excellent for my trip to Greece.
