Go Paddle

The struggle

So imagine this, you've had your NIXY iSUP for about a month now. You love your paddle board so much and want to use it every chance you can while the summer weather is here. However, you are finding that you are sometimes too tired after work and don't feel motivated. Or you don't think you have the time to get to the waterfront and go for a nice relaxing ride. Well, we know what that feels like. Our days are so filled that it seems we can only make time on weekends to go out for a day ride. We want to offer a motivation.

What motivates us

Sunsets are one of our favorite things here at NIXY. And one of the best places to view them from is on top of our inflatable stand up paddle boards on the open water. Whether you have a nearby lake, bay, or beach, you can enjoy the sunset (or sunrise) with little effort when you own a NIXY iSUP. What we love about our boards are their portability, and ease of setup. You can fit the folded paddle board in the backpack and throw it in the back of any car. Then drive down to the water. And then it only takes about 15 minutes to set up the board, and your off! I guarantee that you could fit in a session at least once a week after a 9-5 job and you will feel more relaxed and at ease. Wednesdays are our favorite day to go out as a team getting us over the hump day and moving onto a productive Thursday and Friday. It can be intimidating to go and use your NIXY iSUP for only an hour before sunset because it seems like too much work. But after you try it once, you'll find the joy and splendor in being on the water either in solitude or with a good friend. We think it's worth it for many reasons:

  • Enjoying good company
  • Relaxing and stress free environment (no email, phone, or other distractions)
  • Easy set up
  • High quality gear (NIXY iSUP and backpack, etc.)
  • Beautiful views


We always want to make sure that our customers are using our equipment in a safe manner. We always recommend going out paddle boarding with a buddy. Especially at dusk, having a buddy will give you confidence on your board and will offer help in case of an emergency. We also always recommend carrying a personal flotation device on board. If you are going out and might come back when its starting to get dark, then make sure you have a waterproof flashlight. As long as you are careful, you will love riding your NIXY iSUP. So go get out on the water and enjoy a relaxing ride any dayof the week.
