An interesting new paddle board design combines the maneuverability of a kayak with the buoyancy and stability of an inflatable raft.
Chris Callanan, spokesman for Outcast Sporting Gear, says that the Outcast Approach is the only inflatable stand up paddle board (SUP) made in the USA.
With two individual inflatable chambers and a floor that is separate from and lower than the inflatable outside collar, the Outcast Approach is designed for greater stability. You can stand or sit with ease.
There is also an attachment fixture called the IGS System that allows such things as an anchor attachment or rod holder. Get a look at the Outcast Approach here.
A year ago Callanan says that the Approach is priced at $1,499. The current price listed on their website is $1,399.
Outcast Sporting Gear also makes float tubes, inflatable pontoon boats, rafts and accessories.
