Guru Rating: 10/10
Brand new to the SUP world is the hip and modish brand, Infinito SUP! Currently, they only offer one SUP in two colors, a gorgeous Hibiscus Pink stand up paddle board and a rad Ocean Green. If you want something that no one else has seen before, the Copacabana definitely has the “it” factor!
The 11 foot inflatable SUP comes with some neat features for a first-time board for the brand. It has an extra wide body of 33 inches! That’s excellent news for a SUPper who wants to get crazy with yoga somersaults while on board.
It’s also going to be an excellent training board for novice SUPpers as it sports a six inch thickness that’s guaranteed to help maintain balance and reduce learning falls off the SUP.
Infinito has done it right the first time. They’ve made their iSUP available as a full package to get you on the go immediately. Not only have they outdone themselves with the entire set, but they’ve put in some premium features which are only deserving of more expensive boards.
The 3-piece adjustable paddle is truly a fiberglass travel paddle. The lighter it is, the easier it is to paddle longer distances. It also comes with a high pressure dual action pump so the iSUP will be fully inflated in double time.

Best Suited For
The Copacabana iSUP is a great board for SUPpers of all skill levels. The generous length and width make it suitable for riders of all ages, and it gets you out touring longer distances past the ocean breaks. Use this iSUP for all-round, flat water, SUP yoga, touring, and light surf to get the most out of the inflatable board!
This is a brand-spanking, new iSUP to the market – it literally only came out in 2017. While there’s more yet to say about it from the masses, there’s already been some interest.
What has been said is nothing but expected. The colorful and offbeat skin is definitely an attractive feature for those who want to ride with style. The skin could be thought of as a little strong for some people’s tastes, but how else do you make a name for yourself and your brand when the SUP market is so competitive?
The dual action pump literally gets your board inflated in five minutes tops! This is a very important feature when considering an inflatable board.
However, as a new company brand, people may be deterred from buying from them until more has been said on it and time has done its thing. However, the longer you wait, the more likely it is that you won’t be the only one with a unique ride on the lake!
Frequently Asked Questions
Not as large or as fancy as the Infinito SUP is the XTERRA 10′ iSUP. But, we’ve thrown it in to give you a great idea of how to compare the 2017 Copacabana. The XTERRA does include all the fixings and even a coiled leash, and it can match the risk free return and warranty period too. However, it’s smaller, the on-board deck storage isn’t as elaborate, and it costs the same price on sale but is double the price at regular costs. But, it does have the tri-fin system!
An iSUP that can match the Copacabana is the 2017 Bright Blue 11’6″ iSUP. Again, with discounted prices, it matches the Infinito. It even has the same width and thickness but is slightly longer. An awesome feature of the Bright Blue is the on-board deck storage on both the nose and the tail! Now that’s something to think seriously about. Double the storage, double the snacks – love it!
