User Experience

User_experiencesUsability: 97% – When it comes to usability, the inflatable SUP does a pretty good job.  The lightweight paddleboard comes with all necessary accessories to make the setup process quite easy. Its stable and rigid features make the paddleboard perfect for all types of riders –whether you are a beginner or experienced. However, due to its shorter length and smaller fin setup, the paddleboard may not offer the best tracking performance. Poor tracking is especially more prevalent during windy days.  So, whilst the stability and rigidity are top notch, tracking for this paddleboard is excellent. 

Durability: 98% – The paddleboard’s reinforced PVC construction alone gives it exceptional strength and durability. However, it also integrates additional features that passively help to enhance its durability whilst working on their own respective functions. For example, the grab handles help to move the twin fins at the tail – protecting them against impact with rocks on beaches. A wheeled backpack even comes with the iSUP helping to further protect it and its components against elements in the outdoors and during transport and storage. 

Pros:

  • Built with optimal stability and rigidity
  • Lightweight and portable build makes it easy to transport it
  • The 3-piece paddle breaks away for easy storage
  • Easy-to-haul wheeled backpack with soft padded shoulder straps

Cons:

  • The hand pump maybe a little too small 
  • It doesn’t offer the best tracking 

Overall Rating

Overall_RatingsUsability: 97% – As mentioned above, the NIXY Huntington G4 Adventure iSUP does an excellent job when it comes to portability, stability, and rigidity. The iSUP also works best for both adventure-loving beginner and seasoned riders. Nevertheless, tracking isn’t the best due to the short length and smaller twin fin design. It would’ve been better if the paddleboard had larger fins as they can help provide straight-line tracking.

Durability: 99% – Generally, the Huntington G4 Adventure iSUP does an excellent job when it comes to its durability and quality thanks to its construction. Its stability and rigidity are where it holds points the most. Inflating up to 15 PSI, it remains to provide the same performance even after multiple uses. There certainly isn’t much to complain about the inflatable SUP when it comes to durability.

Price: 95% – Price-wise, the paddleboard is certainly not a budget iSUP. Nonetheless, if you can afford it, you will find that it is worth the investment. Along with the useful components it comes with, the Huntington G4 Adventure Inflatable Stand UP Paddleboard surely offers features that resemble those of a high end SUP.

Overall: 98% – In general, the NIXY Huntington G4 Adventure iSUP is perfect for paddlers of all levels. However, it does a better job in ensuring stability, rigidity, and comfort as opposed to speed and tracking. Nevertheless, its durable construction and portability make it worth the investment.
