NRS Baron 4
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $1,200
The Baron 4, from NRS, is an inflatable SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard). At 11'4"L X 3'W X 4"T; 26.6lbs. this inflatable beauty is portable enough to carry in a Prius yet stable enough for whitewater rivers!
Three kinds of interchangeable fins allow this SUP to perform in any paddling conditions! The backpack storage bag holds the board, the included fins, the included pump, the included pressure gauge, along with a paddle, towel, and more!!!
- Requires pumping for about 15 minutes before use
- Not quite as rigid as a non-inflatable
The Baron 4 is simple to inflate, easy to paddle the first time out, and a pleasure to transport. We selected this board above all other available boards because we wanted to paddle it locally on both whitewater and flat water, but also because of its compact travel size.
We will be traveling all over the country with these boards strapped to the roof, packed in the trunk, checked for air travel, and packed in larger boats for some open water paddling. My folks even picked up a few to pack in their motor home!!
We use the Baron 4 for yoga as well! There is no better feeling than "Corpse Pose" on a sunny day on a SUP...
