Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUPs) have become popular accessories to many boaters, often replacing the dinghy altogether. They’re great ways to leave the anchorage and explore the surrounding areas, and even get a little exercise while you’re at it. But for most boats they’re still fairly cumbersome to stow on board, especially if you need more than one.
Enter the Easy Eddy. These guys have developed a Three-Piece Modular Paddle Board designed to break down in to easy to store pieces that reassemble in less than 60 seconds. The idea is to capture the performance benefits of a hard board, with the portability and convenience of an inflatable. And we think they’ve pulled it off.
The overlapping joint system is designed for structural integrity with easy to use, adjustable latches. The retractable fin is pretty ingenious as well, eliminating the concern of losing the removable versions (we’ve lost plenty of those ourselves). There are some nifty onboard features as well, like the storage space similar to those on kayaks, and even a drink holder.
The Easy Eddy is made from recyclable materials as well, eliminating the toxic PVC used in most SUPs. Find your very own at their already fully funded Kickstarter.
