I see you guy talking about lightwind kite on another topic, starting about 8 knot... but what do you think about making inflatable paddle? 0 to 8 knots ;)

It look like there is a big marketing in developpement, for rider, non rider, casual people, and everykite brand work on these kind of product. It could be a good opportunity to attract new consummer with attractive price regarding your marketing system.

My advice to make a good paddle for cruising :

-Length : 10’6’’
•Drop Stitch Technology (MOST IMPORTANT ;) )
•Multiple Grab Handles : Front, Back & Passenger
•Heavy Duty Quick Valve Removable, quick inflate (3min), deflate Under 30 sec
•Bag : waterproof to use it when paddleboarding
•Stainless D-rings Front and Back
•EVA Deck Pad

•Tri-fin set-up
•Removable center fin : Clip & Go 21cm PVC. No tool needed
•2 Flex fins on the sides

Paddle :
Adjustable with a Big quick lock system
Kevlar or carbon

In fact an inflatable paddle, accessible for all, at a fair price ;) What do you think about that team?

I already have too many SUPs in my garage! Two big ones to paddle with the wife and kids (11'4), and another one for surfing (8'6). I find the inflatable SUP boards not stiff enough, but I guess some will argue it's easier to store in a small car or in the appartment...

I am paddeling each year when there is not enough wind to ride my Nitro and I think a Switch inflatable paddle would be great ! The only reason I am not buying it now is the price ...
So, nice idea :-) !
