Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) has really taken off over the last few years and you have no doubt seen people gliding across the water whilst on your summer holidays. Like any water sport, it takes some mastering, but the simplicity of SUP really lends itself to be a brilliant activity for the whole family, from toddlers to teens.

We have chosen to bring the new O’Neill Santa Fade inflatable paddleboard to our Little Surfer customers as it’s a great all-rounder for comfortable paddling on flat water and in the surf. However, what’s most impressive about this SUP is that the whole kit from board to paddles can be packed away into a single backpack allowing you to take it absolutely anywhere, from Cornwall to the Caribbean! With an inflate time of only 10 minutes, and a 10kg weight once up and running, it really ticks the family friendly box making it manageable for older children to carry to and from the water.

O’Neill are a brand that we have worked with for many years and they were the perfect choice when choosing which paddleboard to bring to our customers.  In 1952, Jack O’Neill opened his first surf shop in San Francisco, since then O’Neill has been the ultimate surf brand. Today, they produce the most functional neoprene wetsuits in the world and to follow the strong and continually growing stand up paddle movement, O’Neill has developed its own SUP boards which have been extremely well received. The O’Neill Santa Fade was the perfect choice for Little Surfers due to its practicality and family friendly functionality:
