The SUP revolution – Self-inflating SipaBoards Air

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2016-04-27

The SipaBoards Air is a premium-quality SUP with a revolutionary innovation: self-inflation right before your eyes. The compressor unit, which doubles as a standard fin box, is built in right where the inflation valve on a normal SUP would be. The rechargeable battery slides in and out, and then with a wave of your hand your board pumps up to the perfect pressure every time. Let us do the hard work for you – while you get ready for your session, stretch out, or simply enjoy the view.

Another update, I have the same questions like Haim.....
Haim Ozchakir
Review from Kickstarter
Quote from last update:
“The first boards should go out in the next 2 weeks”.
2.5 weeks passed. As no surveys were sent, I reckon no boards were shipped, correct?
A comment / update / status to your loyal backers would be appreciated, mainly since you expect people to be sensible and hold their frustration off Sipaboards fb page (You've got to practice what you preach).
Food for thought...

Is this in response to an inquiry from you? I have posted on here and FB with no response from the company. How can the boards ship if they haven’t confirmed addresses? Didn’t they say that they would be sending out a survey in advance?

Yes, it was a personal email, no response on kickstarter, Facebook and indiegogo

Bad news is it’s the end of the week when they promised surveys would be sent out. Good news is they just posted a video on how to operate the Air: https://youtu.be/AjWW8mIMfpU

Any update on the new ETA? For the developers, I get it I work daily with product timelines and having customers nag about when product is going to be ready. Even though it gets frustrating it's good to keep everyone informed on the current ETA even if you may miss the date again.

I am really tired... I wish that they show us another choice to refund.
They don't keep their promises.
Linda Dierkes
Review from Kickstarter
Is there any chance you will ever keep any of your promises?
- giving us information on a regular basis what's going on....
- sending out the surveys...
- and finally sending out the boards....

@Josh Newman. Right on. I suppose the product will hit retail stores and Kickstarter backers at the same time then? Can't complain too much -- hope to receive it soon.

@Marko_Polo At 2:23 mark she demonstrates an Air model inflating.

I believe the SIPA board in the video is a SIPA Drive - it has a propeller - The Drive has been on the market for a while. We're still waiting patiently for the SIPA Air. *Fingers Crossed* Dev: Any chance you'd throw in a paddle for all the waiting? :D

Here's a recent Seattle News segment showing the Air in person: https://www.king5.com/video/news/northwest-paddling-festival-sipaboards/281-8126682

Almost a month since your last update. Please let us know what is going on as the waters here in Ontario, Canada are warming up.

Hi guys just wondering how your ship date is going? I also have moved since butting so I need them shipped to a different address!
Drex
Review from Kickstarter
When do you start with the surveys?
Alexis Yannakis
Review from Kickstarter
Are you going to ask us to confirm the shipping address ?
I have moved since when was it ? about 2 years ago ...
Please do send us individual emails to ask confirmation of shipping address etc and confirm you will send us a tracking number of the shipping ..

Review from Kickstarter
Thanks for the update! The lack of communication for me was more worrisome then another delay. I hope things smooth themselves out and we will all see the benefits soon.

Review from Kickstarter
@Sipa thanks for the update it's at least nice to hear that we're not forgotten. If shipping is starting soon does that mean we can expect the survey anytime soon?

Review from Kickstarter
@Lurlean and @Ami, yes, that's true, the DRIVE models are available at REI. The drive models have been out on the market for retail for over 3 years, so their inclusion in REI is just a logical progression in our sales of a line of products that is completely unrelated to the AIR, which is what this KS campaign is for. Of course we understand that it looks a little funny, but the REI sales are for a completely different model. The first people in the world to get the AIR models will be you all. 100%. As for the delays... guys, we know. We know so hard it hurts. Like Rainer says below, realistic is shipping in another 2 to 3 weeks. Literally everything that could have gone wrong in delaying our schedule did go wrong. Again, as we have said countless times, we won't ship anything until we are 120% sure that the boards will be absolutely perfect. The second that is the case, the boards will be shipped.

Review from Kickstarter
Why are the boards available via REI and original backers are still waiting? This does not make sense at all. Poor customer service.

Has anybody tried calling them? Vaguely remember reading a comment from someone who posted their number & said we can talk to them anytime. Has that changed?
Ajay Blackshah
Review from Kickstarter
Come on man! Please update us! You can't say you're too busy to spend 2minutes posting a simple update!!
Dax Wagner
Review from Kickstarter
This has become a cruel joke now:
"...they will start shipping by 1 March and all will have shipped by 15 March"
-Sipaboards Not even a shred of communication about the delay. RUDE!

A next deal with sipa boards? - Never again!
August Busch
Review from Kickstarter
The lack of communication is concerning now more than before in my opinion. They made a solid/hard commitment on shipping March 15th. I don't mind that it has passed but at least give us an update after not meeting the committed date.

Awful customer (backer) care! Ignorance! No respond to emails, comments, late updates or none,...
All they do is braggin’.

Now that it is March, can we have an update?
Haim Ozchakir
Review from Kickstarter
Guys, status?
On 21/2 you’ve posted on Facebook the surveys will be send out in a couple of days. Hard date for shipping was starting of March (Aussies first)...
No surveys received yet.
Where are we with the boards?
Any delivery estimation?
Not much time left in the Southern Hemisphere to use the sups.
Linda Dierkes
Review from Kickstarter
What about a paddle for free as a compensation for the almost 2-years delay and the ongoing lack of information.
