We are proud to say that all of our inflatable paddle boards are designed in Canada. Quality and performance tests are performed to assure the highest durability. With 6 inch of thickness, our boards are very stable and perfect for beginners as well as advanced paddle boarders. The EVA™ footpad is super comfy and non-slippery. Each Silver Shark board is double layered. Which means not one, but two layers of military grade PVC material. This makes them strong and resilient.
