Introducing the Kumo Board via paddleboard pioneer Jimmy Blakeney and what a great idea too! This concept has been around for years and today has been popularized thanks to the company and board- Indo Board. Just like a standup paddleboard can be used as an inflatable, now your "indo board" (kumo board that is) can too. The Kumo Board advantage: light, easily to use, friendly and fun and easy to travel with and transport. Most importantly, it is not made of wood and will not leave a mark when you make a mistake. While it is not that likely that your standup paddle board hits you when you fall, if you have ever been on an indo board before, you can pretty much guarantee some wood to skin contact at one point or another.
