Bluefin SUP

Bluefin: The Fastest-Growing Company in The SUP Industry

A young, family-run business with extremely good products. Very reasonable prices for inflatable boards that you will enjoy for many years to come. In my opinion perhaps the best company in the industry: Bluefin SUP.

The story behind Bluefin

Bluefin SUP is originally an English company, specialized in kayaks. These kayaks were super strong, of very good quality and soon there was a huge fan base for these products, and for Bluefin. Not only in the UK but all over the world people wanted these kayaks.

The only disadvantage: sending and shipping such a large and heavy product is practically impossible. After many years of doubting the owner made the change from hard kayaks to the inflatable paddle boards. And how! Bluefin is one of the fastest growing companies in the stand up paddle industry, and quite rightly so. Every year they come up with a new collection and every year I am more impressed.

Did you know that Bluefin is a family business? Husband and (future) wife run the business but even nieces and other family members are involved in this fast growing business. Because of the personal approach, a huge community of Bluefin fans has been created. You can join this community if you also have a Bluefin SUP!

Did you know that Bluefin is one of the leading SUP board companies in the world?

Founded in 2013, Bluefin has quickly gained popularity among paddling enthusiasts for their high-quality and affordable paddle boards. Bluefin’s inflatable paddle boards are made of durable materials and can be easily transported and stored. They also come in different sizes and styles to suit different paddling preferences.

In addition to paddle boards, Bluefin offers a range of accessories to enhance your paddling experience, from paddles and fins to waterproof bags and heated vests. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced paddler, Bluefin has everything you need to enjoy the water.

The Bluefin SUP collection of 2024

The most important boards of Bluefin are the Bluefin Cruise and the Bluefin Carbon (click to scroll down). The Cruise is the all-round entry-level model, and the Carbon is the premium version. The Cruise and the Carbon are available in different sizes. Which size you choose depends on your SUP needs. I have created the table below so you can compare.

Next to the Cruise and the Carbon Bluefin offers the following boards:
Bluefin SUP Cruise Lite: Extra light version of the Bluefin Cruise
Bluefin SUP Cruise JR.: for kids
Bluefin SUP Sprint: racing SUP board
Bluefin SUP Voyage: Smaller board, mainly for alternative use as Yoga or to fish
Bluefin SUP Mammoth: for groups
Bluefin Aura Fit: for Yoga and high stability
Bluefin Nitro: racing and high-speed SUP board
Bluefin Rogue: touring SUP board

The Bluefin SUPs are in my purchase guides several times! In my opinion, these might be the best boards in this price range. Great value for money.

The Bluefin Cruise Lite gets 5 stars on Amazon based on 3 reviews.

Introducing the Bluefin Cruise Lite Inflatable Paddle Board – the ultimate companion for your water excursions. As an independent reviewer, I had the opportunity to put this all-inclusive SUP package to the test, and I must say, it exceeded my expectations in every aspect.

First and foremost, let’s talk about its portability and travel-friendly design. With a total weight of just 13.6 kg, the Cruise Lite is impressively lightweight, making it around 35% lighter than the regular Cruise SUP package.

This feature alone makes it a game-changer for those who love to travel, hike, or embark on spontaneous adventures. You can effortlessly pack it up and take it anywhere without the hassle of heavy equipment.

The construction of the Cruise Lite paddle board is worth noting. It is crafted using a lighter 5″ drop stitch core, which not only reduces its weight but also enhances its maneuverability.

Even the handles, bungees, and GoPro mounts are designed to be lighter, ensuring that carrying and maneuvering the board is a breeze. Whether you’re a beginner or an intermediate paddler, you’ll appreciate the ease of handling and transporting this board.

Now, let’s talk about stability and performance. The Bluefin Cruise Lite features the all-rounder hull shape, which optimizes glide and maneuverability. It provides a stable base for easy paddling, allowing you to confidently navigate various water conditions.

Whether you’re cruising on calm lakes or riding gentle waves, this board offers a secure and enjoyable experience for all skill levels.

Safety is of utmost importance when it comes to water sports, and the Cruise Lite has gone the extra mile to ensure your well-being. The paddleboard boasts patent-pending reflective D-ring mounts, enhancing visibility and safety on the water.

Additionally, every SUP package includes an ankle leash with a comfortable neoprene-wrapped webbing strap and a coiled TPR cord. You can paddle with peace of mind, knowing that you are securely connected to your board.

This all-inclusive package doesn’t leave anything out. It comes with a five-piece carbon fiber paddle, a compact Swift mini pump for quick inflation, and a waterproof bag to keep your belongings safe and dry during your adventures.

Bluefin has truly thought of everything, providing you with a comprehensive set of equipment to ensure a seamless and enjoyable paddleboarding experience.

In conclusion, the Bluefin Cruise Lite Inflatable Paddle Board is a top-notch choice for anyone seeking a lightweight, compact, and performance-driven paddle board. It caters to beginners, intermediates, and even families with kids or juniors.

Whether you’re embarking on a relaxing solo paddle or exploring new waters with loved ones, this board will accompany you every step of the way. With its unmatched portability, stability, and safety features, the Bluefin Cruise Lite is a must-have for any water enthusiast.


Bluefin-Carbon-Cruise-Tom-Paddling

Bluefin Carbon

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ | Read all reviews
The Bluefin Carbon gets 4.6 stars on Amazon based on 450 (!) reviews.

The Bluefin Carbon is in my opinion the best SUP board available at the moment. If you are looking for an all-round board, you don’t have to look any further. This strong, almost unbreakable board is perfect for any kind of paddle boarding. Whether you want to relax, tour (at speed) or enjoy a nice summer day with several people, this board is the way to go. I see this board as the best paddle board of 2021.

The Cruise comes in three different sizes. Below I have made a table that shows which size is most suitable for you.

Bluefin Cruise JR – kids paddle board

Especially for the ‘little ones’ there is the BlueFin SUP Cruise Junior. This board is 8′ long, 29″ wide and has a maximum weight of 120 kg / 265 lbs. Its length ensures that the board is ideal for people smaller than 1.60m.

Because the board can lift up to 120 kg, this is not necessarily for children. Even older people who are a little bit smaller can handle it very well.

  • One of the few boards suitable for smaller adults
  • Great complete package, consisting of a (fiberglass) paddle with optional attachment for kayak, kayak seat, GoPro mount, backpack, leash, triple action pump.
  • Made of very good and sturdy material. The board can be inflated up to 28 PSI
  • Paddle board and kayak in one by the free included stuff
  • Suitable for people up to 1.60 m / 5’3″. This can soon be too little.


Bluefin Sprint

Bluefin Sprint

The Bluefin SUP Sprint is the board you buy when you’re really looking for adventure. This board is made for speed, touring and racing. This board is suitable for advanced users. It is no less than 14′ long and 30″ wide. The tight tip forward ensures that the board glides well and fast through the water.

In August 2020 Bluefin releases the new Bluefin Sprint Carbon, check it out here

  • Truly a board for long distances and speed
  • Great complete package, consisting of a (fiberglass) paddle, GoPro mount, backpack, leash, triple action pump.
  • Made of very good and sturdy material. The board can be inflated up to 28 PSI
  • Floats really fantastic on the water
  • Not suitable for beginners

Voyage
Bluefin Voyage SUP

Bluefin Voyage

For fitness and yoga lovers Bluefin has designed this board. Water sports enthusiasts looking for just a little bit more stability buy this board. The Bluefin SUP Voyage is 20% wider than an average paddle board. With its length of 10’10” and a width of 38″(!), this board really is steady as a rock on the water. Take another look at the Sprint above: it’s only 30″ wide.

So the deck is made to give you just that extra bit of stability you want. This can be during a yoga exercise, but also while fishing, lying relaxed on the board, or whatever you want. A great paddle board to relax on.

  • Very suitable for people who are looking for more balance on their paddle board
  • Great complete package, consisting of a (fiberglass) paddle, GoPro mount, backpack, leash, triple action pump and two holders for a fishing rod.
  • Can be used for many purposes: fitness, yoga, fishing, relaxing
  • Voted best paddle board of 2018
  • Floats really fantastic on the water
  • Not suitable for touring
  • Not suitable for advanced users

Bluefin-Mammoth-New

Bluefin Mammoth

Looking for a big paddle board for the whole family (or two, or three families)? The Bluefin SUP Mammoth is a board that can hold up to 10 people. With a maximum weight of 650 kg / 1433 lbs, this board is (only) suitable for group use. The 18′ length and the width of 60″ (!) make it impossible to paddle board on your own on this board.

Sports clubs, scouts, company outings, campsites, holiday parks, you name it. This board is great fun to use as a group activity.

I haven’t tested the board myself but I read very positive stories about it on the internet.

  • Fun as a group activity
  • Up to 10 people on one paddle board (max 650 kg / 1433 lbs weight)
  • 5 fins for great stability
  • Not suitable for paddling on your own
  • Package is delivered without paddle(s)
  • Limited possibilities when it comes to use. This board is only fun with more people

Bluefin-Aura-Fit-SUP

Bluefin Aura Fit

Looking for a very specific Yoga SUP Board, that not only has a great look and deck for Yoga but also can be used as a very stable normal paddle board? The Bluefin Aura Fit offers a beautiful board that you can do all your exercises on, including the high quality accessories that you’re used to, including the fiberglass paddle.

This Bluefin SUP is one of the very few boards I have seen that has no carrying handle in the middle, so you will not feel a bump in your back when lying down. Just perfect! Smarter design and a very good and big grip deck. The board has a total size of 91 cm x 325 cm / 36″ x 10’8″, which makes it a very stable platform for all work outs.

  • Stable platform for Yoga
  • No annoying grip handle in the middle that is in your way
  • Beautiful design and big grip deck
  • Not so fast for normal paddle boarding

Bluefin-Nitro-Pakket

Bluefin Nitro

You enjoy Bluefin surfboards, but a traditional, narrow racing board has been missing. You would then experience the same emotions we do, which is why we are so grateful we were given the opportunity to test the new super athlete of the board range with the Nitro.

Bluefin has changed and expanded a significant portion of the board choices for the 2022 season!

There has long been a 14′ variant available for the Sprint, but because to its width, it was a little too sluggish for true speed fanatics. With the Bluefin Nitro 14′, this is now changing!

It’s great that Bluefin now gives true SUP racing enthusiasts their money’s worth. Even more satisfying is the fact that the maker was able to construct a truly sturdy package. The new Bluefin Nitro’s unique structure and exceptional rigidity are undoubtedly a plus.

A fairly extensive, carefully considered range of features that are geared to the area of usage are added to this, along with a premium accessory package that accurately reflects the caliber of the board. A very sporty racing package all around.

The width is the ideal choice for adding the last touch of adaptability and fundamental stability. As a skilled paddler, you won’t always need to be on the edge of your balance and will have a stable base even in stormy waters.

The deal is reasonable in terms of price as well. Such a board could theoretically exist, but not for a cheap price. However, for experienced, quality-conscious customers, the price-performance ratio is generally extremely well matched!

  • Great high quality package with all you need
  • Carbon paddle included
  • High quality and very sleek design to reach high speeds
  • Not suitable for beginners
  • Real speed freaks might think 28″ is still too wide

Bluefin-Rogue-Package

Bluefin Rogue

Bluefin has altered, extended, and therefore entirely reconfigured its board range for the 2022 season. A really thoroughbred and sporty touring board is now accessible for the first time thanks to the Rogue 12.6.

There have always been models with good touring qualities, such the Bluefin Cruise 12′ and the Sprint, but these boards haven’t fully fallen into this category yet.

With the Bluefin Rogue 12’6 the firm is now addressing this little gap in a promising manner.

For the first time, the business is offering a pure and traditional touring model with the Rogue 12’6. In my opinion, from a professional standpoint, this gap needs to be closed. But it was really worth the wait to get this.

Bluefin-Rogue-Details

A well-designed, athletic, and high-quality touring Bluefin SUP board that, at least in my opinion, leaves nothing to be desired. The carbon rails and welded MSL construction produce extremely rigidity while still keeping the weight within acceptable bounds. The features are quite adaptable, and the accessory bundle is excellent.

The critiques are listed more quickly; yet, other from the pump’s rather small format, I am at a loss for words. The Bluefin Rogue is obviously not cheap and novices will undoubtedly turn away at this price. But there’s no denying that expert paddlers with high standards for performance, quality, and gear are also part of the target market.

The renowned Bluefin 5-year warranty puts the cost into perspective when taking into account the durability. The costs are reasonable when compared to the overall quality, which, in my opinion, yields a very favorable price-performance ratio. Absolute approval for the buy!

  • Great high quality package with all you need
  • Carbon paddle included
  • Very stable board and suitable for long tours
  • Lots of cargo space to take all your camping stuff
  • Quite pricey for beginners
  • The pump in the package is rather small

Bluefin Updated Accessories

Bluefin accessories offer a range of high-quality products that can enhance your paddling experience. Before making a purchase, it’s essential to consider your needs and budget. While some Bluefin accessories may be worth the investment for serious paddlers, others may not be necessary for occasional hobbyists.

Whatever your case might be, if you’re looking for top-quality products that can help you enjoy your time on the water, then Bluefin is certainly worth considering. So go ahead and invest in the accessories that you believe will improve your Paddle Boarding experience!

Bluefin Releash Quick Release Utility Belt

The Releash is super easy to use! You can quickly adjust it to fit you perfectly when you put it on. Plus, there’s a separate attachment for your leash, so you don’t have to take the whole thing off when you need to remove the leash.

I love this feature because it makes changing boards a breeze. The leash also comes with a handy zippered pocket that has an extra cord in case you need to tow someone or rescue them from the water. It’s especially useful if you don’t want to paddle over to them yourself or need to stay dry for safety reasons.

Originally designed for whitewater paddle boarders, the Releash is also great for competitive paddle boarders, sup schools, and touring suppers. It’s versatile and reliable for any paddle board adventure.

e-swift Bluefin SUP pump

The pump is really strong and easy to use with big buttons. You can adjust the pressure on the display by pushing the plus or minus button. The pump has a display that shows the pressure in the bar or PSI.

Once you set the desired pressure, the pump automatically switches to position two once the board reaches the first pressure. It turns off when fully inflated, which usually takes about 10-15 minutes, depending on the board size and pressure needed.

Conclusion: Get a Bluefin SUP board or not?

I’m a huge fan of Bluefin SUP. The brand really appeals to me. A relatively small team has managed to turn a successful kayak producer into one of the most popular brands in Europe in just a few years.

So they MUST be doing something right.

The boards I reviewed were all of sublime quality. From opening the box to inflating the Bluefin SUP, everything feels high quality.

The boards are lovely in the water and there is a very clear focus per board:

➡️ We have an all-round board with the Bluefin Cruise,
➡️ a luxe all-round board with the Bluefin Carbon,
➡️ a touring board with the Bluefin Rogue,
➡️ a paddle board for smaller people and kids with the Bluefin Cruise Junior,
➡️ a racing SUP board with the Bluefin Sprint and the Bluefin Nitro,
➡️ a yoga, fitness and fishing paddle board with the Bluefin Voyage and Bluefin Aura Fit
➡️ a family and group SUP with the Bluefin Mammoth.
➡️ a plethora of super-practical Bluefin accessories to make your SUP experience even better!

In my opinion, a much clearer distinction is not possible.

You’ll find a lot of Bluefins in buying guides and recommendations on this website.
A brand where you can’t really go wrong.

  1. I’m very impressed with the impeccable quality this company has supplied. We have a house near the lake and I have had some nice adventures on my Bluefin carbon board, my family likes it too.
