Itiwit 8′ & 9′ 500 surf inflatable SUP comparison review

Compared by us on Apr 27, 2019

Itiwit 8′ 500 Inflatable SUP

“ISUPs don't get much more responsive than this. A must have for any traveling SUP surfer wanting to push it!”

Itiwit 9′ 500 Inflatable SUP

“Very stable but still very manoeuvrable for its size. Great for progressing paddlers wanting to get into the waves. ”

Poor Excellent

Has anyone tried a pendleboard from pendleboard.com
I have tried a couple of inflatables and I think that board beats any inflatable board.
Let me know if you are planning on testing one?
