In collaboration with environmental SUP activist and founder of Standup4Greatbear, Norm Hann, we set out to create a very special inflatable – an exceptional touring and expedition SUP that can handle almost any condition, a board that can go the distance, carry a big load and and get you to those faraway, amazing places. Beyond function, we designed the Spirit Bear to inspire. The graphics tell a story of a promise to protect the land and the waters.

This complete package comes with a removable dolphin fin, dual action pump, and a rolling travel bag / backpack. $20 of this sale will be donated to Standup4Greatbear.

WHAT MAKES OUR INFLATABLES BETTER

All Sprout™ inflatable boards are made using our FireLite Fusion technology resulting in boards that are superior in lightness, rigidity and durability. Because our thermal fusion process is glueless, the weight is drastically reduced while the material strength, rigidity and durability are increased. Compared to traditional inflatable paddleboard construction which uses glue between material layers on the deck and bottom, our FireLite Fusion technology is far superior. All Sprout inflatables feature our FireLite Fusion technology.

 

 

CORE DECK & BOTTOM

The Core consists of superior high tensile strength, reinforced high density cross woven polyester threads. These threads are drop-stitched to a core composite fiber mesh layer, which is heat fused to an inner liquid polyester infused pvc layer, with another composite mesh fiber layer on top of that, followed by an outer liquid polyester infused pvc layer. Using our FIRELITE fusion technology, these 4 layers are thermo fused into one resulting in an air and watertight, extremely light, stiff, and durable monocoque construction. The body is designed and cut using Rhino software on precision plotters. This ensures the outline and rocker are built to specification for superior performance.

RAILS

We use a Four Ply rail system for ultimate rigidity and durability. The rails consist of the inner core skin layers, deck and bottom layers, and 2 layers of pvc wrapping the rails. The inner pvc rail layer is .5mm thick and is infused with a special liquid polyester for a water and air tight seal. The outer liquid polyester infused pvc rail layer is thicker at .9mm and adds stiffness and durability to the rail system.

THERMO SEALED DECKPAD

The thermo sealed deckpad is a premium 4mm eva material with a press molded croc-skin and diamond groove textures for optimum comfort and traction. The deckpad is laminated onto the board in a machine press for a flawless connection. Stainless steel D-rings are used for leash, tow and tie down points and they are set in a double pressed PVC housing for superior strength. Superior quality high pressure air valve has a through-bolt connection to the deck that offers a water and air tight seal. We use Air 7 fin boxes in our inflatables because they are simply the best fin system available for inflatable SUPs offering superior durability, ease of use and options for a variety of fins.
