Stand Up Paddle Stability System (S3)
An innovative system developed by Hobie, the S3 control plates provide additional stability and rigidity in key areas of the board, providing a superior paddling experience yet maintaining optimal portability.
AEROLAM Technology Is Our Premium Inflatable Sup Construction
At the heart of all Hobie inflatable SUPs is a diagonal drop stitch core. The diagonal drop stitch provides for a much higher density thread distribution vs a standard linear drop stitch which ultimately provides for a much superior core structure that holds a better shape, prevents twisting, and allows for higher inflation pressures.
In addition to the core, Aerolam features a second and stronger reinforced PVC layer, which is hand glued directly to the core layer. The benefits of this construction are a high performing inflatable SUP that is more durable, can hold additional air pressure (18 psi+), and most importantly maintains its shape.
