Quick take: if explorers Magellan, Cook, and Vancouver needed a SUP way back when, this would be the one.
Like its cousin, the Atlantic, the Bristol inflatable was designed for exploration. The twelve-footer offers robust gear storage and portage capabilities with fifteen tie-down points (aka D-rings) and three carrying handles. But the Bristol sets its own course with its tapered bow and slightly narrower waist (33”), adding efficiency to longer paddles. Stylish topo lines are complemented by vibrant rail and deck pad coloring.
Stand on Liquid’s inflatable paddle boards are constructed using Multi-Layer Fusion (MLF) technology, which is lighter, stronger, and 30% stiffer than the traditional double layered PVC technology. By fusing two layers of high-density structural PVC into a single structure with heat lamination, no glues or solvents are used, eliminating hand gluing errors, reducing board weight, and increasing rigidity.
All packages include a wheeled backpack, adjustable fiberglass paddle, dual action pump, fin, ankle leash, dry bag, and repair kit.

Stable but Fast!
I'm a big guy (230 lbs) and needed a board where I don't worry about falling in. At 33" wide this board is plenty stable. What I like about it is that it also gets through the water well (because of its pointy nose). And it has lots of tie down points. Really happy with this board and the overall package.

Glad you're enjoying the board, Samuel!
7 Bristol Boards
I have 5 in my rental fleet and adding another 2. Very strong boards and we attach coolers and fishing gear for many customers. They are happy and we are happy. Some customers only play in the surf. The wind in Cabo is not our friend so morning time is best for us. I still say 5 stars!
My experience on the water has been really good. I feel like I have good balance on the board and the it scoots along pretty good. My experience at the store was really good too. I received expert advice. I've been on the board about a dozen times and it is so fun. Even paddled today in the rain.
Bristol Atlantic and Good Vibes
We are fans of the Stand on Liquid inflatables and have the Bristol, Atlantic, and a couple of Good Vibes. So yea we think they are the best. Never had any problems. We each have our favorites, mine is the Bristol because I get the most glide with it. Our kids like the Good Vibes best but always go with the Atlantic when they double or triple up. Hope that helps you folks who are reading these reviews. Including a pic of boards on top. There’s another inside.
stable and can carry a load
I have loaded this board up for camping adventures as well as paddled it for distance. It is super stable and can surely carry a heavy load. It has exceeded my expectations.
