Incredible for taking my yoga practice to a whole new level. Consider this board if you are a yogi, and will be doing tricks so the middle of your board is flat (most boards have a handle there, a strap,etc). I do find tricky sometimes to connect my paddle (that is your "carrier" in the middle of the board) - when I am exiting the river for example, or am in a party with friends (because it takes you a bit more time). The board is very stable. I am able to do headstands with ease, and starting to add more "sideways" tricks (such as side plank) as I become more comfortable with my board. The board is enough for my height (I am 6', about 140 lbs just for reference). Taking good care of my board (cleaning it with fresh water, drying it, being super careful) is prolonging its life. However here in Arizona, our river isn't only super shallow but rocky too. I've gotten stuck a few times, even falling off my board into some pretty rocky rapids. The board remains strong. I do find myself wishing the fins came out. FYI for transport, it is just easy if the fins came out, like the other boards THAT IS MY REASON TO TAKE ONE STAR. Please Body Glove, make one where we can remove the fins??? thanks!!

It saw the best and 1st try for me. I borrowed it from my niece and she used her daughters. She gave me lessons and we had a great day. They own 4 different boards for their family. We went to Moraine Lake and had the best time. The water was calm and I was able to stand most of the time. I got better as the day continued. thanks for the fun.

Incredibly smooth and stable. Super easy carry, and quick inflation. Riding with child passengers is easy. This is an amazing board for the price point.

Paddle Board Highlights
Who is it for?
If you’re looking for an affordable, inflatable paddle board that is designed for standup paddle yoga, take a look at the Oasis from Body Glove. At 34 in. wide, the Oasis is very stable which is crucial for practicing SUP yoga. The board was designed with the female paddler in mind and the graphics and weight of the board work towards this goal. The Oasis can also work as an all around board for when you’re wanting to cruise around close to shore and offers some added features like extra handles and a carbon stringer making this board all the more premium. At $999 the Oasis is a very affordable yoga-specific paddle board with a premium look and feel.
At $999 this inflatable is simply one of the most beautiful mid-price point inflatables that you can buy. The graphics are gorgeous and have a very thoughtful coordination of color scheme all throughout the board. The construction is just remarkable. In fact, it’s quite surprising that at this price point you can find a carbon stringer with reinforced rails, comfortable handles on the nose and center of the board. The board is fairly stable. It’s not the most stable on the market but is fairly stable and pretty average in terms of stability and it would make for an incredible gift for your wife, girlfriend, daughter, etc. who is looking for a board in the yoga space and wanting to have fun on a board that is at an affordable price point that looks good.
Paddle Boards fall into two broad categories, All-Around and Specialty boards, with all-around designed primarily for recreation while speciality boards for top performance in specific disciplines
Durability is largely a result of the board construction and shape, with more durable boards typically carrying more materials (added layers, PVC, etc) and as such adding to the weight.
Carrying ease is determined by board weight and handle type, where a board weighing under 20lbs with a Liftsup handle is extremely easy to carry while a 35+lbs board quite difficult.
Stability is a product of construction and shape, where boards w/ 30”+ wide and 200+ liters in volume offer plenty of stability for your AVG adult while a board under 26” wide is a challenge.
Glide is a result of board shape and construction, w/ boards weighing under 30lbs and designed for racing offering best glide while recreational boards normally being on the slow side.

Dimensions10" x 34" x 6"
Industry standard in board dimensions reads: L (length, from nose to tail) x W (width, from rail to rail at midpoint length), and H (height, from top to bottom of board at midpoint length).
Standup paddle boards tend to fall into 4 different weight classes: extremely lightweight (under 20 lbs), lightweight (20-28 lbs), average weight (28-35 lbs), heavy (above 35 lbs).
Volume is a key metric to determine how much weight a board can carry. Boards w/ 200+ liters offer most floatation with boards under 150 liters typically for high-performance surf.
Capacity is the max cargo weight a stand up paddle board can carry, considering not only the paddler’s weight but whatever else the paddler may choose to carry alongside him/her.
Add On'sBungee Nose, Paddle Holder, Paddle integrated handle, carbon pvc stringer
Add-on’s include bungee cords, a minimalist way to haul things; Connexsup, which allows for all sorts of attachments, even fishing rods; and FCS II/Connect, for easy fin install.
Handles directly affect carrying ease, with external grip handles (Liftsup & EZgrab) offering most comfort, Internal Ergo Grip the mid-tier comfort, and box handles as least comfortable.
Fishing rod holders and/or paddle holders can make paddling that much more pleasant, esp. when needing holders for the rod or having a safe place for the paddle during yoga.

Body Glove SUP Reviews
Body Glove Performer 11′ 2020
Body Glove’s most popular inflatable SUP board, the Performer 11′ is a really fun all-around iSUP that’s priced very affordably. Perfect for beginners and families, this board offers good stability and the tapered nose allows the board to cut through wind and chow well.
Like Body Glove’s other iSUPs, the Performer 11′ comes with everything you need to get on the water and it’s extremely easy to set up. The front bungee storage area provides a secure place to stash your gear while you’re paddling and the rubber bumper on the underside of the board’s nose adds additional durability.
For more details on this popular SUP, be sure to check out our detailed Body Glove Performer 11′ SUP board review.
Body Glove Raptor Plus
A board that is very similar to the popular Performer 11′ but designed for smaller paddlers, the Body Glove Raptor Plus is another versatile all-around iSUP that can pretty much do it all. Measuring 10’8″ x 33″ x 5″ and weighing in at 22 pounds, the Raptor Plus can support up to 300 pounds of weight.
This is another excellent board for SUP newcomers and families. It’s slightly shorter, narrower, and thinner than the Performer 11′ and also comes with a full bundle of SUP accessories. The Raptor Plus features a front bungee cargo area, multi-purpose carry handle which can secure your water bottle, durable nose bumper, and fixed tri-fin configuration.
Body Glove Mariner XL
The Body Glove Mariner XL offers the same great design as the regular Mariner fishing iSUP but adds an extra inch of thickness for increased rigidity and buoyancy. This board is ideal for larger anglers and it packs the same great features as the thinner Mariner — front bungee cargo area, Railblaza mounts, D-ring attachment points on the rails, and more.
SUP fishing has really caught on over the past several years as more and more anglers are discovering that paddle boards are the ultimate fishing platform when it comes to maneuverability, portability, and affordability.
Check out our in-depth Body Glove Mariner XL SUP board review for more info on this SUP fishing board.
Body Glove Oasis
The Body Glove Oasis is a model that was designed specifically with SUP fitness workouts in mind.

Body Glove Navigator Plus
The Body Glove Navigator Plus offers the same basic design as the company’s Mantra model but shaves an inch off the overall width and features a design that is less female-focused.
The Navigator Plus measures 10’6″ x 33″ x 5.4″ and it weighs in at 24 pounds. Due to the fact that this board is slightly narrower than the 34″ wide Mantra, it won’t offer quite as much stability but it’s still an incredibly stable board on the water.
If you’re looking for a versatile and stable all-around board that will work well for a variety of activities and conditions, the Body Glove Navigator Plus is a model worth considering.

Body Glove Warranty Information
There is no published return policy for Body Glove that we could find. Body Glove boards that we’ve previously reviewed carried a 1-year warranty, but we haven’t been able to confirm any current warranty information on their website.
Known for their wetsuits and PFDs, the website warranty specifically addresses those products but doesn’t mention iSUPs.
We are disappointed that they sell their boards online without support information so we suggest having a thorough conversation with the staff at your place of purchase before you buy.
