All Aboard The Body Glove Crusader!

July 21, 2018 1 min read


It’s a party SUP. It’s a family SUP. It’s both! Body Glove unveiled its giant Crusader SUP last month at Surf Expo in Orlando. It definitely turned some heads, to say the least. Measuring 15 feet long, 66 inches wide and six inches thick, it’s latest in our line of best-in-class inflatable SUPs that are designed by Body Glove Athlete and product development guru, Luke Hopkins. Slated to come out this summer, it comes with four adjustable 3-piece paddles and two dual-action pumps. All told, it takes about 10 minutes to inflate the 76lb ISUP.

“We’ve engineered the Crusader to be the ultimate friends and family board. From the nose rocker for paddling over crazy waves and also for use as a diving board into calm water, to the cooler tie-downs and ability to anchor it down as an island, the Crusader really is a platform for fun,” said Luke Hopkins.
