Blackfoot Angler

Aquaglide is no stranger to the world of inflatable water products, but most of their expertise was geared towards waterpark features for resorts, camps and other commercial uses. However, the company has also turned their attention to inflatable stand up paddle boards, with the Aquaglide Blackfoot ISUP Angler being one of their best offerings for fishing enthusiasts.

This iSUP got its name from the Blackfoot River, located in Montana, and it is clear to see that Aquaglide meant business when they designed it. The company has been perfecting the toughness and durability of their commercial amusements for years and has applied the same qualities to the Blackfoot. A web-work of internal stitching inside an incredibly durable PVC shell ensures better stiffness than the competition, which is improved even further by the fact that the board can be inflated to up to 18 psi. Considering that most inflatable boards go no further than 12 psi this is a definite advantage.

The purpose of the Blackfoot is definitely fishing, so it gives you a firm, double stitched floor to stand on. The Blackfoot is also 36 inches wide, which coupled with the solid construction, means it is stable as you can get for an iSUP. In fact, this board tracks so well that it can give many rigid boards a run for their money, let alone other inflatables. This is not just down to the solid construction, but also its quick-remove skeg. All that extra space on the Blackfoot doesn’t go to waste either as it has six Scotty adhesive bases for mounting whatever accessories you want to take along. Bungees in the stern and bow provide additional storage options for gear and the board also has D-rings to tie down a cooler/seat.

Overall the Blackfoot is is a big, durable board that offers the kind of stability and durability that is typically only found on rigid boards. The only difference is that you can deflate it and stow it away safely when you are done on the water.
