Gili Sports Adventure 11' inflatable paddleboard

Gili Sports Adventure 11’ SUP Review

The Gili Sports Adventure 11' inflatable SUP is a great paddleboard. Its drop stitch dual layer construction with Gili's own Fusion technology makes the board durable and rigid. The Adventure isn't only a cruiser but can also easily be used as an all-around SUP and therefore makes it ideal for beginners and more advanced riders. The price is actually very good, especially when you consider the high board quality and the included accessories (carbon fiber paddle, dual action pump, comfortable bag) in the package deal!
