Sneak Preview: New Lotus YSUP and Fishbone Inflatable SUPs from Advanced Elements

Last month at the Outdoor Retailer sporting goods show, Advanced Elements announced the newest two additions to their growing inflatable paddle board line – the Lotus YSUP and Fishbone ISUP – and the new Alani fiberglass SUP paddle.

Lotus Inflatable YSUP from Advanced Elements is great for yoga.

The Lotus YSUP addresses the growing interest in Yoga paddle boards. Weighing in at 28 lbs, the 10 foot Lotus YSUP features a thicker, 6-inch deep drop stitch material with a wider 32 inch beam and snub-nose, making it more stable for a balanced yoga session and smoother ride.

Other yoga-specific details include a convenient, removable carrying strap, eliminating the need for a carrying handle in the center of the board. An extra-long (nearly full length) traction pad provides a clear deck surface with improved grip for maximum comfort. Three d-rings located at the board tail allow the paddler to attach gear or leash.

The Lotus YSUP inflatable paddle board comes with carrying case, single-action hand pump with gauge, three removable tracking fins, shoulder carry strap and repair kit. The ISUP is rated for 200 lbs. Model #AE1062. MSRP $999.

Fishbone Inflatable Paddle Board SUP from Advanced Elements

The Advanced Elements 11 foot Fishbone inflatable SUP features a unique displacement hull design  – by connecting with the water at the bow, the Fishbone cuts through flat water to provide optimal speed and performance.


Three removable tracking fins – two standard and one deep fin – increase trackability, while multiple d-rings located at the nose and tail can be used to attach gear, bungee deck lacing or a leash. The Fishbone weighs 26.5 lbs and features a thicker, 6-inch drop stitch material with a 30 inch beam, suitable for riders up to 230 lbs.
