Are cheap budget inflatable SUP boards any good?
Cheap inflatable sup boards are as good as what you expect of them. If you don’t intend to use your board for hours many times a year, a cheap board will do the job.

Cheap paddle boards are usually lighter as they use less material for their construction, which is great for transportation.

On the other hand however, less material means less quality and usually less pressure for the board. Overtime the board might bend to a banana shape which is not the greatest to ride.

Cheaper inflatable sup boards usually don’t come with the perks of high end products. They might not have good warranty (or no warranty at all), no customer support, poor design quality.

But if you plan to use your board only a few times a year for short periods of time, a budget paddle board would be perfectly suitable as the low price would then be one of the important decision factor.
