The Flood delivers on this experience with a super stable, convenient to store, easy to carry, and even easier to paddle platform. Built with our extremely tough AeroBOTE inflatable technology construction, there isn't another SUP that packs in as many features and offers a price point as appealing the Flood.

"AMAZING"

This is my second Aero Rover. I bought one for myself to take with us when we traveled in our RV. My wife like mine so much we bought one for her. The stability is what sold her and of course having a 6hp motor didn’t hurt. We are taking them to the Florida Keys in a couple of weeks. Cannot wait.

"VERY VERSATILE"

This inflatable is extremely rigid. Like a hard board. And the versatility of the Aero Rover( paddle board, kayak paddle, electric motor, gas motor ) And all packs into your trunk or back seat. Take good, and very stable.

Amazing. We take this out on the water every weekend. Set up is super easy. Large enough for two people to out on it all day. Can’t wait to see what it can do when we get our motor.

MADLY IN LOVE!!!

I am so madly in love with my Rover Aero micro skiff. I wanted something big enough that my kid could go out with me and that I could store my gear and that I could use my trolling motor with. Looking at tins of other options out there and researching I chose this and I am in awe of the super high quality construction, and the flexibility it gives me as an inflatable. And with with many accessories people come up to me constantly asking about my set up. I also have a hard body Bote paddleboard and they are all so well constructed i know these will last many years of use.
