Gear Review: Goosehill Inflatable Standup Paddleboard

Goosehill Inflatable Standup Paddleboard

Are you a water baby like us? We love water! As you can see in our blog, we totally enjoy playing in the ocean, rivers, and lakes. Now, that fun is multiplied ten times more with our brand new Goosehill Rainbow R Inflatable Standup Paddleboard. This gives us—and you—an even better time on the waves! And best of all

We got great value for money because everything we need comes in one convenient package. No need to buy separate attachments. The Goosehill Rainbow R Energy comes with the inflatable standup paddleboard itself, a collapsible oar, a safety leash, an attachable stabilizer fin, an air pump, and a repair kits.

Everything fits in a nice wheeled trolly that can also be used as a backpack.

A sturdy, high-quality air valve features a spring-lock mechanism to ensure that no air leak during the SUP’s lifespan. A silicone cover seals the mechanism to prevent water from seeping inside the valve.

To bleed the air, simply push the spring lock mechanism down.

The air pump has a pressure gauge. Proper pressure is at 15 to a maximum of 27 PSI. We recommend between 15 to 20 PSI to allow air to expand, especially during hot days.

Handy pump

It only takes a few minutes to fully inflate the Goosehill Inflatable Standup Paddleboard. And when it’s fully inflated, it’s a real beauty!

You can take the paddleboard anywhere since it is collapsible and inflatable. Bring it with the beach, to the lake, in a local river, when you go island hopping—-every body of water you can think of. Your friends and family can have fun with it while you go scuba diving, for example.

Additionally, you don’t have to buy or build special racks on your vehicle to transport it. Just deflate it, store it its pack, and carry it anywhere.

On the same thought, the Goosehill Inflatable Standup Paddleboard can be stored conveniently in a small space—under your bed, in your car’s trunk, in your wardrobe, etc.

Let’s check out the features of this amazing paddleboard. It has two small fins to ensure a stable ride without sacrificing agility. If you are just starting out paddleboarding or if you want a more stable ride, just attach the larger center fin by sliding the rail into the slot and locking it in place.

Fins for maximum stability

Stainless steel D-strings and elastic cords allow you to secure your belongings safely.

A safety leash ensures that your standup paddleboard doesn’t drift away from you even if you fall off from it.

All of these amazing features are just the icing on the cake. The exciting part lies in the high-tech materials that the Goosehill Inflatable Standup Paddleboard is made of. The inside is made up of hundreds of compartments using stitched rows of strong fiber threads. Altogether, they form a dropstitch core that can handle pressures higher than 20 psi.

The board is then heat treated to make it super air-tight.

But the heart of the Goosehill Inflatable Standup Paddleboard is its patented SCE (Super Construction Enhancement) Layer Reinforcement Technology on the board’s shell. This involves installing an extra double-laminated layer to an already sturdy core layer on each side of the board. This makes the Goosehill SUP way stiffer and more durable than normal single-layer boards.

Aside from the added protection against punctures, the technology prevents the board from sagging under a heavy weight. In fact, our Goosehill SUP easily retained its shape even with the weight of our daughter Alexa and her cousin Faith.

The inflatable SUP can carry a very respectable maximum payload of 551 pounds (250 kilograms).

The board’s slip-proof EVA deck pad is compressed with high pressure. It resists constant exposure from the sun’s UV rays, sand, and seawater. It also feels soft and comfortable on our feet.

Our pretty daughter Alexa seems to love napping on the board rather than riding it. She later remarked that it’s really comfortable and wants to make it as a makeshift mattress in her bedroom. Hahaha!

The final reinforced extra seal layer provides an additional level of protection against harsh elements.

Alexa! She's very pretty now

With a length of over 10 feet and a breadth of 32 inches, the Goosehill Inflatable Standup Paddleboard is very stable and firm.

All this technology is packed in a board that is only 20.5 pounds (9.3 kilograms). Even Alexa can carry it under one arm.

In the water, as expected, the Goosehill Inflatable Standup Paddleboard is very stable like its heavier fiberglass counterparts, thanks to its size, broadness, and triple fins. It’s very easy and enjoyable to handle. The non-slip deck pad helps prevent the paddler from falling even though the surface is soaked with seawater.

Stable board

The Goosehill SUP sits high up in the waves, making it very responsive to the slightest moves or paddle strokes. I was actually surprised with its great degree of maneouverability. As such, it is a great platform for beginner and advanced paddlers alike.

In fact, Alexa was able to learn how to paddle in just a couple of hours time. Consider that she doesn’t have experience in paddling yet!

  1. That paddleboard looks surprisingly sturdy for an inflatable one. I’ve never tried SUP before but I’ve always wanted to. I think I’d probably try it on a regular one first, but if I can do that, I’d totally pick up one of these. It looks fun!

  2. Thanks for reviewing the Goosehill Inflatable Standup Paddleboard. I like that it has the patented SCE (Super Construction Enhancement) Layer Reinforcement Technology on the board’s shell to help with durability. From your images, it looks very sturdy, and I like that it’s inflatable to I don’t have to buy a rack for my car.
