AIRBOARD (Switzerland), regular exhibitor at PADDLEexpo since the early beginnings, receive the 2019 ISPO Gold Award for their new ultra-light all-round and touring SUP

Airboard founder Joe Steiner and Scooter pioneer Wim Ouboter will jointly launch the Ultralight SUP in spring 2019. The inflatable Stand Up Paddle board with a revolutionary pump system sets new standards in terms of weight and packing size.

Their common passion for quality, exclusive design and the search for the unconventional brought together the two successful Swiss brands Airboard and Micro Mobility Systems. The result: an ultra-light all-round and touring SUP. Thanks to the use of the latest materials and the sophisticated deck pad design, weight and volume could be reduced by 50% compared to a conventional SUP board.

Another innovation is the waterproof pump bag. This works as a pump for the basic volume of the SUP. The remaining volume is generated with a smaller pump. At the same time, the SUP bag serves as a practical dry bag.

The combined know-how of both companies was skilfully applied in the development process: Airboard has specialized in inflatable sports products for over 18 years whereas Micro has exceptional expertise in the manufacture of practical, space-saving and environmentally friendly mobility products.
