Entry for Inflatable – PaddleRaftTM by OUTEQUIP

“PaddleRaftTM is a new, inflatable watersports product developed and patented by the Danish limited company PaddleRaft Aps. The product will be exhibited at the Paddle Sports Show 2021 in Lyon on Outequip Aps’s Booth B23 and will be available for delivery to customers from April 2021. For more info, see www.paddleraft.com.”

“PaddleRaftTM is a crossover between a stand-up-paddle board and a raft. The unique design enables for example a family of 2 adults and 2 children to use one PaddleRaftTM for either paddling or stationary watersports activities such as swimming, sun-bathing, fishing, snorkeling/diving or even marine camping.  A PaddleRaftTM is also suited as a launching platform for kayaks, SUP-boards, small boats, etc. In essence, PaddleraftTM is a solution for the COVID generated need for social distancing of families and individuals while remaining active users of beaches, lakes and rivers.”

“PaddleRaftTM creates a whole new watersports category by introducing a maneuverable, marine activity platform for both skilled watersport enthusiasts and new-commers.” 

“A PaddleRaftTM consists of a plate in double fusion inflatable dropstitch material of 2,400 x 1,300mm supported on two Ø300mm inflatable pontoons with length 3,200mm in heavy-duty PVC Tarpauline. The plate and the pontoons are easily assembled by a unique sleeve system with set-up taking only 10-15 minutes. Several PaddleRaftTM can be assembled thus creating an even larger activity surface.”

“Compared to other inflatable watersports products, a PaddleRaftTM is extremely safe. It has a safe working load of 400 kg but can carry more than double that amount. Three separate large air chambers secure significant buoyancy redundancy in case of loss of pressure in an air chamber.”

“The design incorporating pontoons protruding outside the edges of the plate secures an unparalleled stability that is far superior to the stability of SUP boards, kayaks, canoes, and pool rafts. This ensures small movements when people are moving around the plate, the ability to stand on the entire plate without any risk of overturning, and to overcome wakes from motorized vessels. Two detachable fins on each of the two pontoons (4 in total) secure excellent tracking.”

“Another unique feature of PaddleRaftTM is the presence of a 2 m2 storage net situated below the plate. This net allows for storage of gear, food and water, clothes, and all sorts of gear. The storage system is making it possible for the user not to have to return to the point of origin, if so desired.”

“The product also incorporates a 5-step rope ladder for easy access from the water, a safety rope secured to D-rings around the edges of the plate, SUP leash, mooring line, and an anchor. Standard equipment also includes two adjustable SUP paddles, three drybags with carabiner attachment, repair kit, two heavy-duty duffel bags, and high-capacity hand pump.”
