NRS "Heron" Fishing Inflatable SUP Board

Paddle Board Make & Model

MSRP ($):

Although Heron has a nice selection of inflatable paddle boards, none of them were really suited for any kind of serious fishing. Fortunately, NRS has rectified this problem with their release of the Heron. The NRS Heron is an 11” inflatable stand up paddle board that is amongst the pricier options, but offers solid value for money. What is great about the Heron is that it can be inflated up to 20 psi, which means it is able to deliver the kind of performance that one would normally only find with hard boards. Coupled with the ease of storage and transport that comes with it being an inflatable and you have a board that is easy to like.

The Heron is designed for fishing and this is easy to see with features such as its removable, interchangeable fins. These make it easy to customize your setup and since the fins are constructed from ABS plastic, they won’t break as easily during impact. It’s not just the fins that are durable though, as the board itself has a heavy-duty PVC drop-stitch construction to safeguard it against abrasion. Thanks to a deck that is 5 inches thick and outrigger side chambers of 7-inch thickness, this is not a board that is going to get damaged very easily. The Heron also marks the first time that NRS has been able to add a side running tube to a SUP.

To make it easier for you to safely stow all of your gear, the Heron has bungee deck rigging at the front along with adjustable rigging at the back. Additional gear can be attached using the six stainless D-rings on this board and it even has three accessory mounts. The board is easy to carry as it has a sturdy webbing handle in the center and the two webbing loops on its sidewall can be used to hook up the included shoulder strap.

The Heron comes with a premium price, but definitely delivers in terms of weight capacity, sturdy construction and overall durability. It is not as bare-bones as cheaper inflatables either, so if you have a lot of gear you want to take with you on the water this board is a safe bet.
