TRAVELLING IN A MOTORHOME WITH A PADDLE BOARD

Going on holiday in a van or motorhome has many advantages, which justifies the success of this way of travelling. Freedom of movement is the first advantage. With a house on wheels, you can migrate as you wish, stopping whenever you want, without depending on predefined routes and schedules. It is possible to go where you want, and when you want.

Changing places every day allows you to constantly discover new landscapes, and to be as close as possible to nature, from morning to night. No need to go to the other side of the country, it is possible to travel a few dozen kilometers to rediscover your region. Thanks to the van and motorhome, you can get away from the crowds, to escape and recharge your batteries in a natural environment. There’s no need to go away for a week either, a weekend can already take a break from everyday life.

Travel becomes much more spontaneous and authentic: you don’t need to have booked months in advance to go on an expedition. As soon as an opportunity arises, you can move around and stop at the ideal place to get away from it all, all this far from mass tourism.

The freedom to travel in a motorhome

Practicing Stand-Up Paddle will provide you with many benefits, similar to traveling in a motorhome. When you stop near a body of water, inflate your SUP and explore the surroundings from the water. Just like on your van road trip, you can dock wherever you want, and enjoy a moment of calm in the middle of nature. Expect to access unspoiled, deserted and natural spots, which are only accessible from the water.

As you can see, travelling in a motorhome or van with an inflatable SUP in your trunk is the perfect combo to recharge your batteries in the middle of nature and discover the landscapes in a different way. In addition, it will allow you to take care of your fitness, even when traveling.

The ease of transport and storage of the inflatable

Travelling in a motorhome requires you to travel in a minimalist way, favouring the least bulky objects possible. That’s why there’s no need to overload yourself with a heavy, rigid board. In addition to saving you space, choosing an inflatable paddle board will reduce any transport difficulties.

Fold into its bag, it can be easily stored in the trunk of your van. The carry bag of an inflatable SUP usually comes in the form of a backpack, sometimes even with wheels, which makes it easy to be able to carry it to the water.

Our SROKA inflatable Stand-Up Paddle Carry Bags have a large storage space (149 L volume), while remaining light and durable. The design of these bags allows for optimal access and storage of the SUP efficiently and quickly. You can also slip in all your belongings, towel, sunscreen, GoPro, etc.).

You should know that we offer a Full Pack option, to benefit from absolute comfort for the installation of your SUP with an electric pump. The full also features a
50% carbon paddle
and a
leash
. In addition, we offer two- or three-piece removable paddles, capable of fitting into your SUP bag.

The strength and durability of the inflatable

Traveling with an inflatable board can be a hindrance for fear of damaging it. You should know that a quality inflatable SUP will withstand transport very well and will follow you everywhere, for a few years, without moving. Of course, you have to adopt the right gestures to guarantee the life of your SUP: avoid shocks, store it in your bag, do not leave it in the sun, do not go on rocks, do not jump on the board etc…

As you can imagine, what will differentiate from a rigid inflatable paddle board to an “inflatable mattress” is its construction and the materials used.

The Fusion technology that we use at SROKA is the most reliable for us, which allows us to save on the overall weight of the board (about 2 kg). We use the best Dropstitch and PVC on the market. In addition, three layers of PVC on the rails significantly stiffen the boards. This design is also exclusive to SROKA, which offers one of the best glides of all the paddles on the market while having a solid product. It guarantees the longevity of the product, avoiding the problems of detachment that can be found in some brands. No worries to have before, during and after use, so you can travel with peace of mind!
