Badfish is the product of a landlocked surfer building and testing boards for 4 years.
Badfish sup boards were born and raised in Salida, Colorado on the Arkansas River. Two whitewater kayaking guides, instructors, and competitors, Zack and Mike, were bored with sitting down while surfing river waves. Zack believed that he could rip the river waves on the Arkansas River like he did as a kid in San Diego if only he had the right tool.
After four years of brainstorming, prototyping and discovering SUP paddling, Zack and Mike created SUP boards that make stand up paddling on rivers and lakes more fun. Together, Zack and Mike diverse skills in design, engineering and construction with years of surfing and whitewater kayaking experience into revolutionary Badfish shapes.
Inflatable Board Care
The Multi-Chamber Inflatable Technology (MCIT) SUP board from Badfish and Boardworks Surf is a cutting edge inflatable SUP design built to last. With a basic level of care your MCIT will last a very long time.
Always inflate your MCIT to the recommended PSI (side tubes 7psi, drop stitch board 15psi). Do not over inflate the board.
When your board is going to be in the sun for a long period of time, bleed air out of each chamber and keep the black bottom facing down. Do not store your board in the sun for long periods of time.
Keep the air valves free of sand and dirt.
When you are going to store the board for long periods of time (over the winter) make sure to put the board away dry and out of the sun.
The 9″ center fin that comes with the board is intended for use in flatwater and the ocean. It is not appropriate for use in the river. Shorter fins can be purchased separately.
