I chose the Hala Gear Nass 14' because it is one of the strongest inflatable board made on the market. It has multiple leash points for tying down your expedition gear. It is also built very stable for long paddles. Plus the design makes it so awesome to photograph!
Needless to say, Quickblade paddles are the best in the industry. I am using the V-Drive paddle which just slices through the water like butter but also provide plenty of stability during catch and power. The way that the paddle is designed promotes the best tension seal between the blade and the water. In addition, the shaft has a lot of flexibility which makes long paddles much easier on the body.
