A new stand-up paddle board or SUP has been created by Tripstix, which the company says is the world’s first performance inflatable SUP and is now available to back via Kickstarter with pledges starting from $999.
Check out the demonstration video below to learn more about the technology and inspiration behind the Tripstix SUP which is hoping to raise €100,000 via Kickstarter to take their design into mass production
The design team at Tripstix explain more about its two-chamber-technology and design.
With our two-chamber-technology, we can create exact shapes on all kind of surfboards. Sharp rails, delicate nose and tail, concave hull and balanced rockerlines characterize our inflatable boards. The extra stiffness provided by the vacuum chambers in combination with a perfect shape results in a high-performance surfboard. Surfboards with our technology float even if punctured.
The development of our Allround-board is completed! And with your help we are able to go into mass production this year! We are a start-up company from Munich providing the world’s first high performance inflatable stand-up-paddle board. We created a board that combines the advantages of inflatables with the performance of hardboards.
TRIPSTIX surfboards come along with numerous advantages compared to traditional inflatable boards. TRIPSTIX boards distinguish themselves by a high level of performance due to their stiffness and shape, rivaling classic SUPs/surfboards made out of composite materials. TRIPSTIX boards provide more safety than traditional iSUPs thanks to a second floatable chamber. Our boards inflate twice as fast as classic iSUPs and are comfortable to transport and store.
