Stand Up Paddle Boarding at Lake Julian Asheville, NC

To inflate or not to inflate?

We have wanted Stand Up Paddle(SUP) boards for at least 5 years but there was always an excuse or road block preventing us from getting them. Recently we decided that having an inflatable setup would make the most sense for our current situation. Have hard boards would require purchasing additional equipment to carry them around, while inflatables could easily be stored in either our truck bed or the trailer when travelling. We started researching and learned there are a lot of options for inflatable stand up paddle boards.

Kate saw that a fellow full time RVer, the Snowmads, were using Fisher boards and were very happy with them. After looking into their options we decided that they made sense from a quality and price perspective. So we ordered two Fisher Blowfish boards, picked them up at the FedEx facility near Atlanta and took them to Asheville for their maiden voyage.

Here is a short video of our first voyage on the boards at Lake Julian near Asheville, NC.

We discovered this lake from a blog post on A Wonderful Vegan Life.
