Getting your paddleboard, paddle, water bottle, phone, and other gear to and from the water isn’t always easy. That all changes with the SUP-Now Paddleboard Carry Strap. You can easily carry your paddleboard, paddle and accessories and still have a free hand.
The SUP-Now Paddleboard Carrier Strap shoulder pad is triple padded and made from soft and durable neoprene. The clips are made from weather resistant lightweight metal and just like the rest of the strap, they are guaranteed to last a lifetime.
What makes this paddleboard strap different from others? Well, lots of things. But to point out a few, this strap is more adjustable than other straps which makes it better to use for people of all heights; the high-quality Velcro makes carrying your paddle easy, and even acts as a handle; and our removable bag attachment makes it easy to carry your water bottle, sunscreen, or other items.
Like everything we make, this Carry Strap is built to last, and we back that up with a lifetime warranty.
This item was much better than I hoped for and I had high hopes to begin with. The design is very simple. 2 straps go around your board and you tighten them up and adjust the clips to one side of your board then attach the shoulder strap. The straps can stay on your board and you can easily unclip the shoulder strap to avoid drag while paddling. Quick and convenient! The straps are well padded and feel like you could walk a great distance without an issue. The board stays close to your body and if you have your straps located near the center of the board then the board balances out and barely feels like you’re carrying anything.
The magic of the straps for me personally are the Velcro pieces. Line them up on the top of the board and you can strap your paddle down while carrying. It also gives you an anchor point for your paddle while doing SUP Yoga of if you were on a lazy creek ride and wanted to take some pics.
For those wondering about size I have a titanic board and the straps fit with plenty of room left for adjustments. My board is 14′ and 4 3/4″ thick. It’s a HovieSUP Pursuit racing/touring model board. If the straps will easily fit my big boy they will fit your board.
An added nice touch is one of the straps have a little mesh storage compartment. I was trying a few different pair of polarized glasses out yesterday on the water and placed one pair in the pouch. It doesn’t completely close but it will keep items inside and secure. Convenient for those who tour and take a lot of items with them!

As a family taking on the hobby of kayaking, we didn’t realize how hard they would be to carry. I purchased a 10′ while my wife got an 8′. The kids have 6′ kayaks. The larger ones weighed at least 45-50+ lbs according to the sticker. As much as we love kayaking, we were about to return them because the burden of carrying them to/from the lake was just too much. That’s when I searched online for ways to carry kayaks.
I stumbled across kayak dollies, but those are too awkward (especially having to get them for multiple people). The same search showed shoulder straps. One thing led to another and I found all sorts of products on Amazon.
Ultimately, I went with the SUP-NOW brand. Despite the straps being marketed towards stand up paddleboards, some reviews mentioned they have been used for kayaks. Although I was unsure about the price (there are cheap knockoffs on Amazon), I bought SUP-NOW’s because of the glowing reviews.
Upon use, I cannot believe what a difference it makes. The price vs quality cannot be beat and it makes kayaking for my family much easier. Easier to carry means we will do it more often.
I received a Bote paddle board for mother’s day. Being that it is a 12 ft board, and I am only 5’5″, I needed a strap to help me carry it down to the beach, especially on windy days. After reading many reviews I chose the SUP-Now strap. I was very excited when this arrived, and used it the following Sunday. When trying to put in on, over my shoulder, as the instructions and pictures indicate, I didn’t have enough room to do so. I ended up shortening the shoulder strap to carry it like it was a purse. That evening I got an email from Brian, the owner, asking if I had any questions and if I was pleased with the product. I emailed back, definitely sure that it was purely operator error. Within 5 minutes, I had received a response from Brian, who informed me that because Bote is a wider board, I needed a longer strap. Brian said he would be sending me a replacement strap. About an hour later, I received a second email stating he had already shipped the new strap, and to please keep the smaller one. I was floored. I immediately emailed him thanking him, and expressing my sincere thanks. I made sure to let him know that I wish ALL companies had such stellar customer support and service. I just got my other strap, and am looking forward to testing it out this weekend, once the rain leaves our area. This strap is of the greatest quality, and you absolutely cannot purchase from a more dependable, honest, and genuinely caring company. I highly recommend the strap, and SUP-Now. I look forward to purchasing more products from them!
I’ve only had the chance to use the straps on my board once, but we had to carry the 70 pound /11 foot board from the parking lot, down stairs and around several beaches to find a spot to stop and they worked beautifully! I was worried seeing another comment that another customers board was too heavy and the straps broke, but this did not happen for me! They are still hard to carry being 70 lbs but these straps are something out of heaven for us! We often had to abandon 1 one the two board as it took two people to carry one, now we can both carry them with ease! Great product, thanks@
I purchased this to carry my Vibe Skipjack 90 kayak more easily. I did not want to have to carry my kayak over my head all the time from the car and thought this would be a good idea. My kayak is 9ft long, 32 inches wide and 40lbs. This padded carrier BARELY fits my kayak, but it fits nonetheless. Once my straps were all set for the correct length, it became very easy to slip the strap under the kayak and fasten them with clips. The strap that goes over the shoulder could be a tad longer, in my opinion, but it does the job. The padding works great and it is NOT sewn to the strap, which allows it to move up and down the strap. Some people may feel this is a problem, but if you have to lift the front end of your kayak to go up stairs, this makes it easy to adjust the pad accordingly as you change the angle of the kayak you are carrying.

Works well for SUP. I later used this to also haul my ocean kayak but after a few trips to the beach the strap buckle broke. 100% my fault; it’s not designed for use with something that heavy.
Follow-up to review:
The folks at SUP-Now contacted me immediately after posting my review, and even though the product broke due to my using it for a purpose other than what it was designed for, sent me a brand new strap and credited 50% off the original order. Pretty amazing.

Buy this SUP-Now strap! It is worth the extra $5 to get a strap with padding (see photos). I purchased both this strap (SUP Now) and the Deluxe SUP Carry Strap from Own the Wave, since it came with a waist pack and a phone case. Wanted to see the quality of the two straps and there is no comparison. Don’t cheap out and do your shoulder a favor and get the padded SUP Now strap. The Own the wave strap is on the left and SUP–now on the right in the uploaded photos. Own the Wave is so thin and not comfortable at all. I sent back the Own the Wave and bought another SUP now. We are hanging our boards now with this strap for storage as well. Also this is not a fake review! See the photos and judge for yourself :o)

Cant wait to use it. We have two 11″ SUPs that are only 27lbs but still awkward to carry to the water at the end of our street. I like the fact that you can leave the straps around the board when paddling and can just place the shoulder strap on top of the board, so there is nothing you have to worry about leaving on the beach. Another review said this strap could also be use to store the board hanging on the wall. Our boards are fairly light but the shoulder strap is extra thick with cushioning for heavier boards. And this strap holds your paddle as well.

I love this strap!! I am fairly new to paddle boarding and I’m not the strongest and at 5’6″ and 48 years old, I had a hard time carrying my 11′ board to the water. Once it was even pulled from my grip by a wind gust and sent flying into a piling!!! Thankfully it wasn’t snapped in half and didn’t hit anyone!! Now I have a secure grip on my board and paddle!! It has great features like that the straps hold the paddle making a handle and the water bottle holder is great, too. I also use mine as a storage strap. Thanks for making it easier for me!
I’m 5’3″ and my board is 10′ and I live on the second floor of an apartment complex so getting my board up and down is hard enough let alone just carrying it in general but this product made my life a whole lot easier. Totally recommend!!!!!! It’s super easy to get on and off and made of good quality material. I give it an A++
Mark S –
I didn’t expect much for the price. I got WAY more!!! Great quality. Well made. VERY functional!!! Will make my life so much better. Now I can carry the paddle board and accessories very far from where I park my truck. I can attach my paddle in the velcro holder. I know they don’t advertise this as a feature, but I attach my waterproof bag to the paddle. Before, I was balancing the bag, the board and the paddle. The padding on the shoulder strap is amazing as it is very padded and doesn’t hurt the neck. I LOVE this purchase! Will be buying from them again!!! Can’t say enough about this amazing product!!! Thank you! Mark Ellicott City, MD

I purchased this Carrier for my SUP. The first time I used it (on a Saturday) I lost/dropped the Strap with the Shoulder pad. I immediately emailed the sellers and thought it wouldn’t be until at least after Monday that they would even get my inquiry to purchase just the strap/pad. Within an hour they responded and offered to send me the Strap/pad for FREE! NO CHARGE!!! What? Wow! During the week while I was tracking the package they kept in touch with me apologizing for the delay in delivery. The day I got my new kayak, the Strap/Pad arrived just in time to use it to carry it to the water out my back gate. Be careful not to unclip the strap from the both of two pieces like I did. I learned my lesson. It makes carrying these fun toys much easier. Thank YOU SUP-Now! Great Company!
The instructions were very unclear— I had no idea where to connect the straps at all. While I was walking, one of the straps started slipping out of the fastener and my board got scuffed on the sidewalk! I’m 5’7”— not exactly tall but not short either, and this sling made my board drop super low so I had to lift it by the handle often on a half mile walk to the launch to keep my board from getting scuffed again. I don’t live in an area that is friendly to paddlers, so my launch options are not great except to walk. I wanted this to be a hands-free option to carry my board down to the water and carry my gear with it, but this ended up being a really clumsy option and I struggled the entire way. This product and its users would benefit from clearer instructions or a video on the site from the manufacturer so our personal property isn’t damaged.
Compact, not stringy with tangling pieces
Can be used for storage as hanging on wall/ garage.
Ease of use with the clips and removable shoulder strap. Strap is also wide and soft so it won’t dug into your shoulder.
Good product!! May buy again if I have second board. Thanks

This made it so much easier to carry my kayak. They went on the kayak pretty easily once I adjusted it all to correctly. The only issue I had was that one of the staps would sometimes easily loosen when I picked up the kayak. So I had to keep tightening it and trying to wrap the strap up so it wouldn’t loosen. But, overall I’m happy with my purchase and may get others for my other kayaks.
UPDATE 1/19/21 – I kept meaning to do an update. The seller saw my review and, without me asking, sent me a replacement because of the strap that would loosen. Amazing customer service! They even offered a refund, but I felt more than satisfied with the replacement. The straps worked great on my 10′ Kayak. It is almost impossible to carry alone, but with the strap I could do just that (normally I am with family, but I needed something to use on my solo trip and this was exactly what I needed). I thought about a wheeled dolly cart, but I went this route because once I went on the water I didn’t want to want to worry about the cart on my kayak. The straps are very portable, light, and easy to store and use. Great purchase … may need to buy one or two more sets for our other kayaks.

Awesome product. It was frustrating how difficult it was to carry my paddleboard since it was so large and bulky, but only weighed 50 pounds. This strap made it SOO much easier to carry it to the beach (once parked I have to walk down a stony/ twig and root covered hill probably 200 feet). Yeah, its easy with this strap. I will say that I replaced the plastic bits with metal carabiners, but not because they broke or anything, just out of personal preference. The straps are totally adjustable and really easy to use, so thats a plus. Definately a good purchase.
LOVE! I’m 5’4″ girl w 10’6″ board that’s 32 inches mid and 24 lbs and this works great. Put it on in the water as I’m getting out to carry board – AND leave on when putting on top of Jeep, helps hold the board stable and helps me get it down later. I stuff this into a dry bag when on the water. It’s perfect.

These straps are absolutely amazing and so easy to use!! I have a 12 ft. board that is 34 in. wide and the straps fit so nice and snug! The paddle straps were great also and it made a world of different when carrying my board down to the water!! I recommend these board carrying straps 10/10 for sure!! Also the company has been so great and interested in how I am liking my straps and even let me know that because of my purchase I helped plant a tree!! Such a great company to order these SUP straps for!! Thank you for having amazing customer service!

The shoulder pad is very soft and cushioned.
That’s the only good thing I can say.
The length of the straps makes it difficult to use for larger boards (I have an 11’6″, 34″).
The clasps broke the third time I used this. The springs popped out at some point while carrying it and now the hooks don’t close so it’s rendered entirely useless.
I’ll fix it with a clasp of my own but I would have rather returned this… For the money difference I’d just buy a brand one and not worry about durability issues.

I use this to carry my Bodyglove iSUP Performer 11’, and it has made the walk the half mile to the beach with an inflated board tremendously easy. It is very intuitive to attach to my board, and the design distributes the weight perfectly. The shoulder strap padding is very comfortable and durable. I am 5’7” and the strap didn’t need to be adjusted out of the box, however the adjustment capability would allow a comfortable fit for people much taller than me. I would HIGHLY recommend this for anyone needing to carry a SUP, kayak, etc. for some distance.
It took some adjusting to find the best places to put the straps on the board and how to adjust it on my shoulder, but I love this strap. My SUP is too heavy for me to carry to the beach w/o multiple stops, but this enabled me to carry it the whole way with minimal discomfort. It was a bit difficult to control on windy days, but still significantly easier than w/o a strap, which is as good as can be expected when carrying something so big! I carry the paddle in the other hand b/c it either gets in the way of my arm or bangs against my thigh depending on which side I place it, but I might be able to adjust the position if I took more time, so I won’t drop a star just for that.

1st time long boarder with a 8 block walk to the beach. I had to drive and parking near the ocean is difficult and losing my spot near my place made it impossible to surf on busy days and weekends…so I bought this strap. I wasn’t about to carry my board 8 blocks there and back. With this strap it made it super easy. The weight is balanced on my shoulder and also frees up my hands. It made the impossible…possible.
I’m very satisfied with this product.

The adjustable padded strap with loops for a hands free paddle carry is exactly what this
Long Beach girl needed. Quick delivery of product. I’m totally pleased with my purchase.

If you have to walk some distance to paddle!!! Money well spent for sure. I have an 11′ x 32″ monster and this made my hike to the water so much more enjoyable!! It was easy to use. I was able to fit my paddle and my son’s paddle in the paddle loops. Water bottle holder was a plus! My only complaint is that one of the pieces had a sharp edge on it which I discovered by scratching my arm with it. I filed it down and it’s fine now. Otherwise a wonderful product, I don’t know why I waited so long!!
This really helps to carry our paddle board around. We live a few blocks from a lake, so we just carry it over there. The few times we had just carried it, without a strap, it really hurt our backs (we each carried it once, by ourselves, for clarification). With the strap it is way easier to carry and takes a lot of the strain off our backs. I like that it has clips and swivels on each side to make it easier to get it on your shoulder and eliminate twists, that was one of the main reasons I purchased this one over other brands.
I love this paddle board strap! I live about three blocks from the place I paddle. Although I have a light weight board, even 23 pounds gets heavy after a little while! I am 55 years old and prior to purchasing the strap, I had started to wonder how much longer I would be able to get out on the water without assistance. (While I know I can use a caddy to wheel the board, there is no place to lock it up once I arrive.). The Enhanced SUP Strap is exactly what I needed! I also use the strap to hang my board for storage. Thanks for a great product!

I received my straps last week and used them for my SUP board on Saturday. I have a 12’6″ Riveria Voyager, it’s a little on the heavy side and only has a center handle cut out. I’ve been looking for an easier way to carry my board which led me to your straps. It made a world of difference connecting the straps to my board and carrying it on my shoulder. The shoulder pad was well padded and comfortable. Overall I was very pleased with the functionality of these straps and made it a lot easier to transport my board to and from the water.
I highly recommend these SUP-Now Paddleboard straps!
After months of paddle boarding with a friend over the summer, we both realized how much in need we were for a more effective way to transport our paddle boards to the beach (about a 5-6 block walk in heavy traffic during the summer months). I tried calling around to local surf shops and none of them could help me (either sold out or the other options were too expensive). So I tried looking for an affordable paddle board strap on Amazon, and came across SUP-Now’s product. I just got it today, and it was everything I was hoping it would be. The strap is easy to attach around your board and there is plenty of padding to make all the weight of the board comfortable on your shoulder. I will definitely recommend this product to all of my friends that paddle board as well.
In addition to the strap being very satisfactory, the guys at SUP-Now emailed me to see if I was happy with their product. I spoke with one of the owners of the company, and he informed me that if I wasn’t happy with the product he would personally see to it that he would do whatever needed to make sure I was happy. I have come to find through buying online that many companies are becoming very impersonal with their customers, but this company was not one of them. I’m certainly going to buy more paddle board products through this company.
Ever have a special someone you finally convince to go paddling out w you, only to that potential of an awesome day ruined because they couldn’t even hold the board long enough to get to that water (not to mention the return trip)? Well this product has completely annihilated that headache from my life. I can now share the awesomeness that is standup paddle boarding w my gal n only have to worry about the issues that arrive ON the water. Good work guys
Great product! It adjusts easily to the size of the board. It fits perfectly on my 8 foot surfboard. It’s very comfortable on the shoulder. This will be perfect for long walks or hikes to the beach.
I did not received the product that was described. This strap was more expensive because the attachments were supposed to be made of metal. If at least it would have been sold for the price of plastic attachments. No bottle holder either. I have not used the product yet (received at the end of January) so I cannot comment on the use of the product in general.

Light weight but very strong it fits all SUP’s. We have to port our boards down 100 stairs and this allows you do it with ease. The straps take awhile to get set to perfectly balance the board, but once done the straps can be put in place quickly. I have two, one for each board. Tie a knot at the end of one of the straps and always use that on the same end of the board. This makes it possible to leave the straps in the same position and get perfect balance every time.

Got this for my husband for his paddle board and he loved it. Said it’s exactly what he needed!
Love these, bought another set.
Debbie E M –
This strap really helps me with my inflatable kayak!! It distributes the weight evenly so no part of my back is being more stressed than other parts! I highly recommend it!!
I surf breaks 1/4 – 1/2 mile down the beach and this sling has made the walk so much easier and safer. It went on in about 30 seconds and kept my board and paddle secure, even through the two rocky sections. It made a huge difference in weird terrain, as you have a free hand and no worries about drops. It’s comfy and easy to stash with your slippers at the beach too.
Plus, I repair surfboards and SUPs and 90% of the SUP repairs I do I find a leaky handle box too. It’s to the point that if it’s got water in it but no dings, I pull the pad and almost always it’s the handle that’s leaking. I’m sure that’s a weak point in most designs and this sling takes that issue away. All of my boards have had to be reglassed there eventually, most likely from long walks. That issue should go away with this, so that’s an added bonus.
Thanks bunches, you have made it much easier to avoid the crowds and get my surf on.

I was really hoping this wield be the solution to carrying my heavy board, but getting it back on after paddle boarding took way too much time and effort. I ended up carrying my board and the straps separately.
J. M H –
I used this for my paddle board but noticed so much more drag while paddling and ended up pulling it off while in the water. I could not get it to fit super tight. It does work to carry it but I’m short so I still need to hold onto the board so it doesn’t drag one one end or the other. It’s ok for what it is. I wish it had clips instead of the hooks to make it easier to tighten and install.
This strap is perfect for carrying and storing my SUP.
I have short arms and it’s hard to carry my board. This strap is revolutionary. It’s made by a neat dude and his dog , yeah small company! I used it today for the first time and it was easy to set up and held the paddle magnificently. I’m so glad I added this to my accessories
This is a great way to carry your SUP board if you’re a beginner or have some compromised land to walk with your SUP.

Excellent Paddle Boarding Kit! Simple design and setup. Kit comes complete with board, a great pump, paddle, and bag to carry when deflated, and a patch kit. The board has 2 small fixed fins and one larger removable fin. Plenty of anchor points (11) to attach do-dads. The board is very stable. Nice Nice Nice… Will recommend. Note: the carry strap and paddle keepers shown in the images were a separate purchase.
Great product – easy to figure out how to use.
I’ve had these for a year but could never figure out how to install them. Looked at the instructions and had 2 ppl help but nobody could figure it out.
I had it in my head for a few years that I’d like to paddle board. After some research on good beginner boards I Finally took the plunge and purchased this board. It was easy to set up and easy to carry. I was able to stand up and paddled around the lake for a few hours the first day I owned it. It is very comfortable, for sit, stand or kneeling. The option to use the kayak style paddle is fantastic and allowed me an easy transition from lake to river. I am very happy with my purchase!!!!
Selina J –
I love this!
This product is good for an average-sized paddleboard. It fit an Atoll 11 footer fine. But it’s not nearly long enough to fit “all paddleboards” as it states in the copy. It got nowhere close to fitting a Sea Eagle FS126 —a board where it sure would be helpful to have a carrier.
This makes my paddleboard so much easier to carry with my bad back. Absolutely love it! ❤️
Great idea, but difficult to set up. I hoped it would be a faster process to slip on the straps and go, but it does take some finagling each time you use it.
Straps were very easy to adjust and use. Worked very well on my Bote and my husband’s Isle SUP. I like the paddle holders since my board doesn’t have any and the drink holder is a nice touch. Durable metal hardware. Seems like they will last a long time.
Great product! We have inflatable SUPs and the straps wrap around the entire board easily. The padded shoulder strap is perfect. We like it so much that we bought 2! Highly recommend.

Interesting concept but not durable. Metal hooks/clasps are already breaking after 2 uses. Not worth it
Excellent support pour SUP.
Avec la version 2 qui a des attaches en métal, c’est super.
Aussi bon pour moi qui mesure 6pi1 que pour ma conjointe qui mesure 5pi2.
Je le recommande a tous.

I needed something to transport my inflatable paddle board. The straps are so helpful and gave me a bit of stability while carrying. In top of it the strap has a paddle sleeve for additive comfort. One of the straps for the board as a place holder for water/keys. I was able to secure it and use it in the water. On top do it all, I received great customer service for missing an item. Not only did they replace it with brand new straps but they gave me a little free gift just because. They were attentive and prompt and I’ll definitely recommend this product to everyone I come across. I look forward to buy more stuff from their store in the future.
Purchased this instead of replacement handles for my pb after mine broke. Easy to use. Nice that it also holds my paddle and a bottle holder. Great for the price.

When I searched for a carry strap for my paddleboard this was the first item to come up. I saw others and compared specs but this one met with what I was looking for by the description. I received it and it all comes in a mesh carry pouch so you can put it away together nicely. The shoulder pad is super comfy. It has a water bottle holder which fits my metal reusable 20oz water bottle. This is great.
It’s okay, but one of the hooks that makes one of the board straps is flimsy and falls out of the loop it’s supposed to go in.
Happened on the first use. Also not the easiest to adjust. Pretty cheaply made. I might try again, but I doubt it’ll go any better

Haven’t taken it to the beach yet but strapped the paddle board up as soon as it came to test it out! Super easy to set up and I think it will make taking the sup board to the beach so much easier!

So I’m not using these straps for a SUP, but for an 8“ Dobsonian telescope tube (a lil over 20 lbs). So far so good! I don’t have to carry the tube far, but negotiating the door to get outside has ended with me bumping the tube a few times (gently, but still!) so these straps give me use of both hands to use the door AND allow me to shut the door behind me (which I couldn’t do before).
I’ve been looking for something to help carrying the tube for weeks and this seems to fit the bill.
Only time will tell how all the stitching will hold up, but I do feel safe with the metal attachment pieces. (I have a strap-a-handle on the tube as well just for extra security)
I got this for my paddle board so I can walk with my board down hill. And to be honest it wasn’t for me. Putting it on was a pain and a half. I couldn’t leave them on to use my board I kept going in circles. So I had to take them off. So to me it just wasn’t worth it. But maybe to someone else it’s worth it. The straps here nice and very durable.
These are very nice but didn’t fit my extra wide board and still need a second person to hold the back end or it flops downward

It’s a fine thing if you don’t want to drag around a 11’6″ board. Nothing more is needed.
A total game changer when it comes to carrying your SUP board. This product was way better than I imagined. The quality and design of it is great. It is very easy to put on and take off the straps.
I love SUPing but am not a fan of carrying the board long distances. I am a tiny person (5′ 4:, 116 lbs) and it was awkward to carry my 10’6″ YOLO Dogwood Reef inflatable SUP Board. Without the SUP-Now paddleboard carrier I was struggling to reach the handle to carry the board and often had to switch arms. If there was a strong breeze, I would almost lose the board.
I found wearing the SUP-Now paddleboard carrier cross my chest works best. Today we had high wind gusts and the carrier made it easy to walk on the docks and back to the parking lot. In fact I stopped to talk to a couple who was going kayaking and stood there the entire time holding my board. In the past I would have had to put the board down.

I’m 4’11 120lbs my board it’s 3x bigger than me and walking from the car to the water and back was not fun at all; this strap makes the hoard weightless and very manageable to carry without much effort. Only problem I’m personally having its I still have problems to set it up and even then it serves its purpose. Highly recommend.
My strap was a LIFESAVER! I’m 5’3 and my arms are short. My husband would have had to carry my board from the truck to the ramp had I not had my strap. It is also very easy to put on and take off.

This has helped me so much carrying my iSUP. Even from the car to the water it can get cumbersome and heavy especially if there are hills. All the ladies I paddleboard with love it.
I’m a 5′ 4″ woman who has a 10.6 inflatable SUP. The strap made a difficult task super easy! This means more solo paddle board trips for me! 🙂
It makes transporting the board so much easier. Highly recommend it
Having the strap is so helpful! Easy to use. Pro tip, bring the mesh bag with you so you can store the straps in the bag while you paddle.
Kathryn B –
My paddleboard is huge and heavy for me at 40 pounds. It came with a case and shoulder strap but wowza it hurt and adding padding would not work based on how it distributed the weight. I ditched the bag and wrapped this around the board and lalala! I wear it on the opposite shoulder and can walk the 1/4 mile to the water without having to drive.

Pleasantly surprised at how easy this was to use. It’s not always easy access to get the board into the water and this was such a great solution! And they planted a tree for my purchase! Thank you.

We live across the street from the lake and have to go up and down a hill to get to the dock. This makes carrying the paddle board so much easier. It seems to be well constructed and sturdy. The shoulder strap is comfortable. So far so good.
Makes it very easy to carry a heavy SUP. Instructions for setup could be better but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out how it goes. Also, all the hardware on my Sup-Now is plastic, not metal.

The straps are good, no complaints, but mine did not come with a carry bag. Not a deal breaker, just disappointed mine didn’t come with one.

This strap is awesome! It makes it sooo much easier to carry my board and even to get it on off the roof of my car. I no longer have to stop to switch arms while carrying my board the 1/4 mile to the beach from the parking lot!
Sally P –
I’m a 5’3″ chick who hates carrying weight, especially after paddleboarding for 2 hours. This has made the trek, back to the car so more manageable! I still take 1 or 2 breaks, depending on my parking spot, but at least I’m not finding myself winded from carrying my board. I absolutely recommend this product for all those who love the sport and who get off on being self sufficient!
Takes a little bit to get used to setting it up but once you got a hang of it, it’s a sturdy and well made strap. Good customer service and they plant a tree on behalf of your purchase to give back a little. Highly recommended

We have 3 boogie boards that are quite a chore to lug around especially woth high winds. These make it much easier for one person to carry it to leave other people to carry other things.

Best straps for the price. Company donates trees for each strap so support these guys!

Edit- after posting my review I heard from manufacturer and he sent a replacement strap. I’ve added photos of where to hook the buckle, there is a loop and the very end of the strap. Replacement has all metal parts, so it should last a long time.
I made the mistake of not using this right away. The buckle on the strap you wrap around the SUP doesn’t make any sense. It doesn’t hook into anything. You slide it over the strap, as seen in my 4th photo. But there is nothing to catch it to keep it from sliding back off. There is a loop in each strap with velcro, where you can insert your paddle. However, if you put the buckle into that loop, then the strap doesn’t fit around a SUP. Wish I’d returned it.

Works perfectly! I can carry my SUP and oar and still have my hands free to carry other items. The little bag attached to the strap is perfect for holding my fins while walking.

Love, love this product!

I like to leave my board inflated in the garage and just put it on my car when going to my local town lake. But, carrying it across the park was super annoying. This durable strap is a simple, comfortable way to make it WAY easier.
The sling: good materials, good design, easy enough to figure out with a little trial and error. Love it
The instructions: Too vague, they spent too much effort illustrating the clip and not what the strap the clip was on looked like. It’s not a difficult product to figure out, but the directions seemed to make it harder for me than just going for it
The water bottle holder: why not put that money into better instructions instead?
Product is exactly a described. Super fast delivery and impeccable customer service. I’m very pleased with this purchase.
Good to have this on hand when you have to carry your board back and forth. I am short, so when I carry it’s a challenge to keep the board from dragging on the ground. It did take a little time to figure out how to strap it the first time.
The price was right and it did help in carrying it down to the ramp with all my other gear. Good to have on hand when you have to carry on your own.

Very happy with construction, I haven’t been able to use it yet waiting for warm weather!
Christina M –
Easy to assemble and works great!!! Very sturdy and the shoulder strap has some kind of gel padding inside making it super soft! Love the water bottle attachment! Pleased customer!!!
Easy to put together. Customer service is nice and reached out to me to ensure I was liking the product. I haven’t tested it out yet except for putting it together. The padded strap is a nice touch and thick.
I have to say this was a great product! I’m 5’2 and had a really hard time carrying the SUP as my arms were not long enough to hold the board comfortably. I had no problems carrying this and the padding was great on the shoulders. Easy to strap and easy to remove.
YAISY G –
excellent made in the USA
William C B –
Excellent materials and easy to use. Great for carry my board over long distances.
Rick D –
Like it, it doesn’t feel cumbersome when lugging a big board for a quarter mile
Sara P –
Bought to carry kayaks a short ditance.
The strap seems to be a good one with good shoulder padding though I have not been able to try it on my board, being in December in Canada. It takes some patience to assemble and reading the small print instructions first would help. I can’t wait for spring to try it on the board.
Shereef E –
I like it
Jennifer D –
I just ordered this product and tested it in place. It is quite easy to put on and works well. The shoulder strap has nice padding and the velcro straps for the paddle is helpful. Product comes with a little bag to store straps on your board. I will update review once I use it but for now, I would recommend this product.
Troy A M –
Just used this for the first time today and I have to say it works great. Definitely makes hauling the paddle boards from the car to the water much easier. Especially great after a long day paddling.
This strap is quick and makes my rather wide 11’6” board very manageable to walk from the car! I love it! The paddle strap is also convenient.
Sherrie C –
This strap barely fit around my paddleboard even at the longest settings. The shoulder pad is nice and it’s better than nothing, thus the 3 stars. You have to configure the straps carefully so that they don’t constantly fall off. It’s ok but not great.
Kimberly L –
does exactly what is intended. Easy to use. Like the additional strap for the paddle.
Works great! Fits my really wide paddleboard of 83” circumference. There are many competitors but what put SUP-Now above the rest is the customer service! Im happy with my choice! This is a game-changer so i can access more water for fishing.
Only suggestion. Make all the clips aluminum instead of plastic. the clip for around the paddleboard is aluminum. The clips for shoulder strap is plastic.
Russell T –
Exactly what I needed for my wife to carry her SUP!
Initially I was disappointed in the carrier. One side kept slipping. I realized one of the hooks was put on the webbing backwards. I took it off, flipped it around and now it works great – no more slipping! I only wish my walk to the water was shorter, or my board lighter.
Rebecca B –
The straps were easy to adjust and stayed in place. It doesn’t come with a bag, but I had a nylon drawstring bag. After putting it in the bag and getting it back out hours later, it didn’t tangle.
Amazon C –
Exactly what I was looking for! Excellent quality! Great price! So easy to use!
Amazon C –
I would give this 5 stars, but on one of the straps the swivel hook keeps popping out while carrying the sup.
William R –
Strap does make it easier to carry my SUP and paddle. The straps on the boards do move a bit when you are attaching them ans at time it is a little difficult to get proper balance.
Amazon C –
Joel F –
This thing is worthless. The entire weight of the board is on a relying on a plastic nipple peice that rotates and popped out almost instantly.. On both ends. Don’t waste your time or money like I did.
***update!!! I am putting my review back up to a 5 star rating as the guys at SUP NOW have reached out personally and made it right by sending me a new updated strap that works much better. It’s all about the service with these guys and that what we need more of in this world. Thanks Brain & team SUP!!!
There is a great effort toward providing instructions that are easy to follow. It takes a little bit to adjust the straps to your liking but once it’s done it’s done. I really appreciated the follow-up thank you notes as I believe these folks intend to and do provide great products. Thank you!
David G –
Takes a while to get it all set up so that the board is well balanced. I have actually reverted to carrying my board without it.
Update: I received a new strap in the mail (total surprise!) and a note from Brian, the owner, offering a partial refund for my initial order. Super excited to try this one out and grateful for this company!
I must be doing something wrong, because the carry strap keeps sliding towards the middle of the board and I end up carrying the board on my own…the “nose” of the board falls towards the ground. The directions are confusing… other reviewers love this, so it must be “user error.”
Gio V –
So I attached it to my big board. It dragged on the ground. My board was just easier to carry by board handle. Not easy to use in a hurry. I will try to use next time I go boarding.
Likes T S O –
Works great for getting my board back to the truck after an exhausting paddle. My board is big and heavy and slippery but it is easy to put this on in the water and carry everything at once. I originally contacted customer service about a missing piece and a new one was sent immediately. Brian in customer service was great!
Great product! We sometimes have to carry our boards a distance to put in, we aren’t getting any younger lol. This helps.
Melanie A –
Couldn’t be easier. I live 4 blocks from the beach and I can walk there with my paddle board effortlessly. I actually used to drive with my board. If you’ve ever walked even 1 block with a paddle board you know what I mean.
Cherie L –
It broke the first time I used it. Posted about it and the company was very proactive in resolving my issue. I haven’t used the replacement yet but based off of customer service alone I’m giving it all the stars.
Nice to take it to the beach
Deborah B –
I bought this hoping to use with my new Point 6 Tequila take apart kayak. Although each section only weighs 25 pounds, they are a bit awkward to carry any distance. This strap adjusts to the correct size and works perfect as a kayak carrier.
Michael S –
Good quality product that works. I used it for my stand up paddleboard
Bought for my daughter and it definitely lets her have the ability to carry the board herself. She is only 5’2″ and about 115lbs so she is little.
Samuel C G –
Love the SUP strap, I made a hollow wooden SUP and it weighs 38 pounds the SUP strap is easy to use and is very comfortable and makes transporting safe and easy!
R. H –
I use this for carrying Hobie Mirage Eclipses. Adjusts easily. Nice product.
After posting my review I recieved a new strap in the mail out of the blue from Brian at SUP. This new strap is way better than the original. Brian offered to return half my money for the trouble, I didnt even reach out to him, he reached out to me. Now that’s great customer service! I will be buying from SUP again soon!
Concept is good, but quality is trash! Couldnt even use it because the hooks came missing a piece. I was so excited to use it too. Ill be cutting the cheap clips off and putting better quality ones on. Save your money, dont buy this one.
Amazon C –
Super helpful in transporting those awkward paddleboards. Easy to use. So glad we purchased.
Joe B –
Easy and simple to use. Does not make a SUP weightless but gives extra points of contact, holds the paddle and reduces stress to hand on handle. Also easy to handle during a gust. A bargain for the price. And you can leave it on the board when you store it.
Ashley K –
Strap is easy to put on and comes with step by step instructions, and once on you don’t have to keep taking it on and off between uses- I just unclip the shoulder strap and store on the board while out in the water. I love that there are straps for the paddle and a compartment to put my water bottle and keys. This makes carrying my board to the lake so easy! The seller is also super attentive, emails you to make sure everything is good with your order and that you love the product. I highly recommend.
Amazon C –
This product is amazing, exactly what I was looking for to help make my life easier when carrying around a paddle board twice my height lol. I made the mistake of leaving the straps on when I was transporting my board to the next town over and lost one of the straps mid drive. Brian had reached out to me to see if I was enjoying the strap and I told him what happened and the same day he sent me out a replacement strap completely free! Just wow! Great product, great price, outstanding customer service! Also shipped way faster than the estimated time originally given. Def give this product & company a try!
Shar ( I –
Straps are Great…now I just need someone to carry it.
Vern & B –
Exactly what I needed! I would definitely recommend this strap. I have an inflatable paddle board. With the parks closed, due to Covid 19, I’m not able to take my car, which is were I keep my bag and gear. With this strap I was able to inflate at home, and walk it across the street to the beach, with no need to carry anything but a towel. Strap folds up nicely and stays under the nose cargo net, no problem/no worries someone will steal it from the beach. Easy to use and tucks away in my gear bag, nicely when it needs to be stored.
I have a 12 and a half foot paddle board that weighs as much as a baby elephant. It was really hard for me to carry it to the water. This has made it so much easy to walk down to the bay and drop my board in. The best part is that I can throw it in my dry bag and paddle off with it. I struggled a little to assemble it, but I’m a blonde, so….The instructions were very helpful and the message I got from the company after ordering was super helpful as well. I’m so glad I can use my paddle board and get out on the water more often now.
Valerie S –
Walks to the lake with my sons for some SUPing just got totally easier!! Tried the strap out with both my soft top SUP and inflatable SUP and was very pleased with how easy it was to use on both and how much of a difference a strap could make. (It’s about a 10/15min walk from my house to lake)
Compact, lightweight and I like the paddle holder. Makes it easy to carry my 12′ 6″.
Makes carrying the paddleboard much easier
Stephanie W –
I loved this. It came quickly with Prime.
I used it the night I got it in the mail and it immediately took the weight of the paddleboard off of my arms. With a back injury too, this was helpful because it made it possible for me to comfortably carry the board.
The straps also come with a storage bag attached to them which made it nice because I could attach it to my board for easy stow away.
This is a great way to transport a paddleboard. I have an inflatable board. My first one had a shoulder strap but my new one doesn’t. This is a great accessory to have to carry your board to the water easily. It’s easy to get on and off. Strap is really comfortable.
Amazon C –
This thing works well. Has been a board saver for my daughter.
Todd M –
This product really makes hauling our paddle board to the beach much easier, which means we use it more. Great option for people that need to carry the board to the water.

I use it for my kayak. It seems sturdy. Easy to use. Worth the money.

Easy to install on my SUP and makes carrying it so much easier.
easy to use. I can carry my inflatable board or kayak without struggle (130 pound fit 60 y/o woman). stashed easily in the kayak or on the board. highly recommend
Excellent product. Great for carrying boards without a handle and drying wet laundry just as the good lord intended

Tuve un accidente con una pieza que se rompió y Brian, la persona responsable de los returns fue muy amable y envió dos veces el equipo completo de reemplazo porque una se perdió en el correo. En realidad estoy agradecido por su excelente servicio. Muchas gracias. Atencion increible.
Exactly what I needed! Much easier to transport my paddleboard. Not bulky, no carts to worry about being stolen. Simple. Perfect!
About T –
FABULOUS product! This is my second purchase of the item – so pleased with the first, and so economical, I thought I should just capitalize on the ease-factor and have one dedicated for each use I need!
Very nice quality materials – the straps, Velcro, stitching, and hardware attachments are all top-notch.
EXTREMELY adjustable to the board (or whatever you need to carry) and the person carrying. Great product, great price, great vendor!
Allan R –
I was skeptical when I first saw this but thought “What the heck, I’ll try it.” It works exactly as advertised and is really handy if you have to carry your board for a long distance or on windy days. The small velcro tabs to hold the paddle are convenient. Super simple in design (I prefer to loop the strap over my head opposite the side I’m carrying the board on – much easier than just over the shoulder) and priced right.
Patricia A S –
One of the clips for the straps broke on my third outing rendering it completely useless.
Makes carrying paddle board to water so much easier. Especially being small, with in proportion short arms, carrying my paddle board had been very awkward.
It works great. Easy to set up and very helpful when carrying your board and paddle. Hands free.
R. B –
This strap does what it’s supposed to. Nice pad on the strap for comfortably transporting my board to the beach. Conveniently holds the paddle too. I would buy it again.
Bought it for my wife she said that it does help
DOG M –
good to have
This is helpful when you need to walk some distance to get to the water!
Ryan M A –
Holds very well, so capable I was able to add a short board along with my sup!
I have one of the heaviest SUPs on the market at 45lbs & 11ft, and it was very cumbersome to lift up onto my Jeep alone with only the standard center handle. Having one of these straps as a secondary grip is a complete game changer and lets you control the board more from hitting your vehicle on the way up. Also great for carrying to the water; lets you use way more muscles (safer) to carry the weight and frees up your other hand to guide the board and keep it from bruising your hip.
I do wish the plastic buckles were on the straps in such a way that they would not be on the bottom where they create drag and catch surface debris.
The paddle holding straps are nice too. Changes my setup workflow once arriving at the water and I no longer have to worry about holding the paddle with my other hand or keeping it in the bag on my shoulder. Assemble it at the car and use the velcro straps for it. Water bottle pouch is useful too!
Will update review if it doesn’t hold-up material wise after more uses.
I am 5’4″ in order to shorten up straps so the board isn’t dragging on the ground, it is too short to get over my head and hang off. Then I can’t even walk. My tall (6’2″) husband tried it and it works but still very awkward walking with it. To go a very long distance or up and down hills / cliff walks at the ocean, dont think it would work so great.
Jeanne M –
It’s all good
Amazon C –
this was working fine but after a few times the buckles keep popping open, so it is not helping. Is there something I can do about this?
This thing is awesome. My board weighs 28 pounds and I carry it up and down a quarter-mile fire road with a steep incline. This strap is the difference between misery and a relaxing walk.
Well made and using it to hang for storage!
These straps are so easy to use! After a paddle, the straps go on for carrying back to the garage. Then we keep the strap on and just hang them on a hook with the strap. Easy start and ready to go for the next paddle!
Tiffani M –
This is perfect for my folding kayak!! Seems like good quality material and the padded shoulder strap is really comfy! I’m so excited to not have to hand carry my paddle!
Easy to use and I just leave them on the boat when I’m on it. I bought this because I usually get stuck carrying an 11’ board by myself. The straps made life easier and every time people see me carrying the board they ask where I got the straps.
Gary H –
It arrived fast-it was a gift for my son
Tracy A –
I use this with my inflatable paddle board. It’s great when the board is inflated and deflated and rolled. There is a bit of a walk from the water to my car and this is great for carrying the deflated board and it easily fits in my drybag.
I have two SUP paddleboards and lugging them into a remote place can sometimes be a lot. Found this carrier and what a difference. Easy to use and adjustable. Thank you for your product that has saved my back.
R.L. F –
Durable, fairly easy to use, and definitely make carrying our boards easier.

This is a great product! Makes carrying the boards so much easier!
SERGEI R –
Looks okay, can be adjusted to a larger SUP no problem, appears strong…. but on my second day using it one strap clip partially broke. The middle section of it cracked and then strap got lose and my SUP fell down (luckily on gravel, but could happen over concrete floor then damage to expensive sup guaranteed). This happened completely unexpected, no signs of failure. Please see attached picture where yellow part shows slip with middle part intact, while red arrow points to the clip which lost middle section. Ugly tie helped to still carry sup to vehicle, but it was last use of this product. Beware.
Aaron R –
It arrived quickly. I bought it for a gift, looks like it will work. Recipients are excited.
Toi B –
Perfect solution for carrying a paddle board from car to beach. Easy to use. Good price.
Using it for a hard sided prone paddleboard. Works great. I imagine it would be even better for a SUP, hard or soft sided.
I have been searching for a carrying bag for my oversized zero-gravity chair that I need for sleeping when traveling due to a bad back. The bags designed for this type of chair were too small. I looked at bicycle bags and portfolio bags and couldn’t find a reasonable or economical solution. I finally purchased a laundry bag to at least keep it clean while traveling but it was awkward to carry. Once I saw these paddleboard straps on Amazon, I knew I had my solution. They were easy to adjust and the shoulder strap is nicely padded. I’m very pleased with my new straps so far!
Shellie D J –
Is easy to use and evenly distibutes the weight of my SUP for easier carrying.
I wish it could fold up into the the cup holder and attach the board for storage while paddling.
I have a large fiberglass Paddleboard that can be difficult to transport. I currently have it in a location where there are very steep steps. The strap was easy to apply and allowed me to easily maneuver the board down the steps. It gives you extra carry power.
Tina W –
works well on my 12ft board!
The paddle board carrier is very easy to put on the paddle board. I put it on by my self just to see how it fit. I was amazed at how easy it was to put on an how much it helped stabilize the paddle board for carrying it.
Once I figured out where to put the straps to balance the board out I was good to go!
After the cousins stole the raft I repurposed this as a bike storage. Good product
Hillery R –
After carrying my new board one time, I realized that I was going to need some form of carrier. I was trying to decide between a wheel-based and a shoulder-based. I am so pleased that I bought this.
It transfers the weight completely to the shoulder and allows your hand to guide the board and turn.
The design allows me to put it on the car roof rack and get it back off with ease.
Elvira R –
This is an ingenious accessory. Makes porting board easy, especially for a petite gal.
I was very pleased with the quality of this carrier. Will purchase again if needed for another board. Makes carrying a board less cumbersome!
Amazon C –
I like the concept but I found my board was to heavy for me to carry like that. The paddle handle seemed to slip toward the top so I couldn’t get the lift I needed. I think it will be great for hanging it to store.
Janet S –
Love this strap, makes getting to the water so much easier. Live that it holds my paddle also! Seems cery durable.
VERY well made, easy to use. Hands free to walk to the water with my Dog on her leash. I have already told many friends about this product. Love it !
Ordered based on the great reviews. Seemed like a good product but the first time I used it to carry my 30lbs board, one side of one of the buckles broke.
Laura H –
I have not used the strap yet due to weather but it arrived fast and I am super excited to be able to carry my board with ease! Thank you!!!
Works great!! So helpful, I used to struggle getting my paddle board to the lake but now it’s easy, slips right over my shoulder and makes it super easy to carry. Very adjustable too so could even work with a small kayak.
Not much to say, it works as advertised. I do recommend this product.
Bill G –
A MUST HAVE for transporting your SUP back and forth to the beach. I actually stopped taking my SUP to the beach because it was such an absolute pain with the wind constantly trying to blow an11 foot board out of your 4 fingers the entire walk back and forth from the parking lot.
This strap makes it effortless.

This board is big, you wind fall off it very easily. It’s a bit heavy and awkward carrying but I got the carry strap and that helps a lot. It goes across the lake pretty quick! You could fish off it.
Johana V –
Genial para poder transportar mi paddle, muy recomendado.
Lisa A D –
Although I specifically purchased a lightweight paddleboard, this strap makes it so much easier to carry. I have super short, not very strong , so by moving the weight of the paddle board to my shoulders the board is much easier for me to handle. And, my hands are free for other things!
Cumbersome. If your board weighs more than 30 lbs, don’t buy. Very disappointed
The best! This has been very helpful for carrying my inflatable from car to water. Well designed product.
Jess S –
Beats carrying it without a strap!
Barry M –
Simple and effective my GF can easily carry her board a greater distance

Best purchase ever… super strong and small to I just stick it on the Bungee on the board

Great product. I’m tiny and my board is big. Problem fixed. 😉
fantastic product works as described

So far so good. Bought these after trying to carry boards for a few hundred yard trek to the water. Straps seem good quality and fit securely on the boards, No slipping.
This is a great strap. The material is very high quality. I use it on my 8ft torq longboard surfboard. It works really well! Thank you!

This product makes that easy. We live just across the street from a lake and a five minute walk to a dock. I bought this sling as a Christmas gift for my wife (paddleboard instructor) so she could carry her heavier paddleboard to the lake. Very easy to attach – nice features. She loves it.

This strap works as advertised. very durable and makes it easy to transport the board. My paddle board is about 30 pounds. The strap worked well and stayed in place when I paddled. I used it to walk quite a distance and it did get heavy on the trip home. I would recommend only short distances unless your board is super light. I highly recommend this product.
Seems great…liked the cushioning on shoulder pad and color. Did not get to use it yet and the second one was a gift, so looking forward to trying it out!
Bob T –
Worked as advertised but using the finger hole on the board is quicker and easier to carry your sup board .. so we don’t really use them

Perfect for the wife who is 5’2”
This sling is easy to use, and makes carrying my board so much easier!
Makes transporting my 10 ft SUP a breeze. Make sure you read the guidelines as it is necessary to place the straps properly.
Ken B –
Looks like a good tool for carting large surfboards and SUP’s. I have one of each that I often carry 1/2 mile over sand dunes and this is a good solution. It’s light weight, easy to pack and set up and moderately priced. Sure beats putting a board on my head ala 1963 when it wears out an arm.,

Easy to use, and easy to put on – great product overall!
Anthony f S –
Easy to use and love the simple design!!!
The actual product is nice and sturdy. Barely fit around my SUP to clip. I don’t think it makes the weight any easier, just concentrated it on to your shoulder in one spot which makes it extremely painful and hard to transport a few blocks to the river.
I use this with my Lifetime Fathom 10 SUP :
Dimensions: 10’L x 34”W
Board weight: 44 lbs.
Actually bought this hoping my 12 y/o could use it to carry 8 ft surf board ! It works perfectly!
this is perfect and I love the paddle strap too!

Makes my trip to the water so much easier. Best $20 bucks I have ever spent.
Max W –
One thing to keep in mind is to not bash the plastic buckles, they are just normal plastic and dont look like they would hold up to being crunched with the weight of a board. It’s a great solution to a common problem, super easy to strap on and off with no hassle and makes logging your board easier, I sometimes didnt use it if my trailer was right by the beach, but even then this is so easy to use I just use it out of habit now!
Nancy J –
Got this for my sit on kayak. It makes moving my kayak possible. The molded handles on the kayak are useless. With is strap I can get my kayak from the house to my Jeep and then to the water. The kayak is double my height and almost 1/3 of my weight.
Plus this company is very hands on, ready to help in any way. Thank you for great customer service and a great product.

I like it, but I’m not sure how to keep it from shifting while I’m carrying the board.

Sling is solid, and holds board well. Good Customer service.
Just what I needed to help carry my kayak, which is hard to do being only 5 feet tall!
It makes carrying my paddle board a lot easier.
Bought this product for my fiancee who is 5’1″ 103 pnds. She has a board that is 9 feet 12 inches long. Not sure about the weight. This makes carrying it a tad bit easier but adds a big stress on her shoulder. Sadly not as easy to carry as people claimed it would be. She ditched the strap and carries by hand under her arm for short distances. Nice to have the water bottle holder on the strap if it would stay on.

This made it so much easier to carry my SUP! I love that I can carry my paddle at the same time so easily.
Great product! Easy to use and works as described!
The sling arrived promptly and my son was excited to bring it on a trip to his friend’s cottage. Unfortunately, there was a minor snafu with the little bag designed to hold keys, etc. I contacted the company and heard back almost IMMEDIATELY (which is so rare in today’s world). Customer service sent out a replacement bag and they could not have been nicer. My son loves the strap because, let’s be honest, carrying a kayak is pretty damn awkward without two people. This allows him to bring it right to the water by himself and he figured out how to use it within minutes. Great product and people – and I’m really hard to impress!

I really like the fact you can attach the paddle to the strap and carry it with the paddle board. I haven’t had a chance to really mess with it so I’m not sure if you can secure the strap to the board without having a bunch of slack in it when not carrying it. Other than that the strap makes carrying the board easy.

Makes carrying my SUP so much easier. Its very well built and easy to put on. They didn’t skimp on shoulder padding either.

Instructions were great, sent via e-mail before product arrived. However, I purchased a really nice sup board from Costco which is going to sell a lot of these boards due to price, convenience and quality of product. These boards are 35 inches wide and you’re strap is too short.
Delivered on time. Haven’t used it yet but looks like it will work great.
Amazon C –
It’s definitely a must have for paddle boarding! Met all of our expectations! We highly recommend this product!
Amy J –
Makes it so easy to lug around my board.

It works well with the inflatable paddleboard I purchased with it. It definitely was a good buy.

Brian, I am very happy to have bought the SUP -Now Paddleboard Backpack, I am currently traveling and have not yet used it. Thank you for your service. See you in the water. Teresa Cristina
I’m giving this four stars because I think it’s a quality strap, but I found it very confusing and hard to use. I gave up and it’s now sitting on top of my fiberglass SUP.
Ken B –
Great design………….looking forward to using it soon.
Laura R –
This is a great way to have the independance to carry your board alone. I have to go down 25 steps to the river and this will save my life!
Amazon C –
Works like advertised
My new BIC board is much heavier than the last one I had. So I had to get a strap. I took it around the yard carrying it. The neighbors got a kick out of it and It felt so much stable that struggling to hold this up. This is so worth it!
C. B J –
Love everything about it !
I just order the strap but it is still winter here. The seller wants me to give a review. But I haven’t even taken it out of the package. But he keeps sending email to review. So here go. It came to my house quickly. Nice package. You can see the product without removing it. Doesn’t feel heavy. So that nice. The color is black – so it will match most of my outfits.
Rob I –
The product is a good idea. The shoulder strap should be longer.
I can’t comment on its functionality at the beach yet as right now in New England we are fighting a wicked nor’easter. What I am commenting on is the design and potential. It has all I want in a carrier and the delivery was very quick. That was important as it is a birthday gift for my son.

Not as easy to use as described. Absolutely no use to my wife and that was who it was for.
I really like this product. It works great on my board. Love the carry handle for my paddle too. The thing that makes it a winner for me is the fact that there are 2 release buckles and 2 other releases. It makes it easy to put on and take off. My fingers kill me when I carry the board without the strap, and I no longer have this pain. Great idea. Thanks.
Augoustinos P –
Everything came in good condition
I found this very easy to use and affordable. It makes transporting the board and paddle much easier.
Jim R –
Quality product. Works perfectly.
TV M –
Makes carrying my board very easy
Mike C –
So convenient and well made
A C S –
It is a gift for my husband. We have not tried other label and cannot compare it with other. I give five stars for the quality and the reasonable price. It is very easy to put it on or off, and the shoulder pad is comfortable. Over all, it is a well made product.
T. C B –
Unlike most people who order this item, I don’t own a surf or paddle board. I ordered this for a large strapless duffle bag. With this carry system, I can easily strap this to a duffle for shoulder carry. This makes it a lot easier to carry a 50 pound duffle using this than using the hand straps. The only reason this did not get 5 stars is the shoulder strap is not adjustable. Overall It is a quality product.
Melisa W O –
Excellent product. Great for smaller people. I am 5’2″ and the strap adjusts to fit me well. The cushion padded strap saves me from the pain the other straps on the market causes
Amazon C –
I got the SUP straps for my kayak after Brian and his company gave me enough info to think they could work. They do, and they’re high quality. I’d like it if the shoulder strap was a bit longer, but I’m able to get my yak from point a to point b with far less hassle. So this is a yak carrying strap as well as a SUP’s.
Amazon C –
Exactly as described. I was able to carry (my pretty light board) 2.5 blocks to the water from my house
Crunchy P –
Great design for ease of SUPping
Amazon C –
I have not been able to use my strap yet, with all this crazy weather, but it is exactly what I need to carry my board in an easier way. I will truly appreciate that I purchased this item.
Joel C –
Excellent padding on the shoulder strap. Seems very well made. I’m sure we will enjoy it for a long time
Very tight fit for the board we have. No extra slack whatsoever which makes for a very tight fit. Would have preferred if there were more slack and able to adjust to fit.
Dale E C –
Perfect for carrying the Paddleboard from car to beach!
Mel B –
Really made it easier to carry board
Jeff B –
I am short, about 5″ and it works for me. Makes board easy to manage. Well made
Michael L –
I bought this strap back in 2015 and used it regularly. I am 6’3″ and was worried it may be too small for me, but it fits perfectly and comfortably. Unfortunately, I bought the product before they upgraded the buckles, so eventually one of the old buckles broke. However, they immediately expressed mailed me a set of the new upgraded buckles with no hassles whatsoever and at absolutely no cost to me.
So glad I purchased this! Many other paddleboarders have looked at this when I carry my board to the lake and ask where I got it from. It does help quite a bit with the cumbersome board and trying to carry it on windy days along with all of my other stuff that I pack with me on my board.

All seems good. My board is HUGE. I could stand a big longer shoulder harness and more padding. I might use if I drive somewhere and it’s a long walk, but for transport I will use a cart. I will keep it in my box of goodies or sell to someone with a lighter board.
Joshua D S –
Good strap, I haven’t had much time to use before getting request for review, but it looks good apon initial glance
Russell B –
Works good as advertised
KATHY O –
Even though my inflatable paddle board is light, this strap makes it so much easier to carry. The paddle holders straps are a brilliant idea.
Luke O H –
The extra padding on the strap makes a huge difference and was what decided me on this brand. So glad I did.
Getting the strap tight enough to use the paddle as a handle took some practice. Think will be the same for all makes.
One word thing was there soapy current on the straps. When I washed my board I should have taken the straps off.
For anyone who has to carry a board, even the lightest ones this is a must.
Elijah H –
Great product! We recently bought an inflatable board and the bag instantly fell apart leaving us with no way to transport and store. Thank goodness we bought these awesome straps! We used them to wrap up and secure our deflated board for travel home. Worked perfectly! Thank you!
Kindle C –
Strap is very durable and yet comfortable. It fits around my board which is quite wide. Definitely makes it easier to pack around.
I purchased this strap and another cheaper one for my daughter’s board. I figured that since hers was such a smaller board that it wouldn’t be a big difference. This strap is a lot nicer and the buckle clips are so much easier than straps that slide on. Overall, this has been a good purchase.
Works great to transport our inflatable SUP!
Doc B –
Works just as described! I have to lug my paddle board sometimes a block or two and although my board is light, having a little extra help and a free hand due to the water bottle holder and paddle holder helps a lot!
Pat I T –
Tried it on board but not actually had a chance to use it to carry board from car to beach. It fits, easy to put on. Holds paddle, too! Looks like it is well made. Satisfied buyer.
Amazon C –
Easy instructions, great design, just wrap board and go. Great for carrying board any distance.
Ron W –
Order was fulfilled on time and it works as advertised.
Diva D –
I have managed without a carrier for two years but am asking myself how? and why? This product is as described and a marvelous thing!
Doug B –
Slick straps, easily adjustable to take on and off. Much easier than just carrying the board. It you want to use the handy water bottle holder great, you might want that strap in the front but either way works. Obviously strapping the paddle is a benefit to free up the other hand.
Amazon C –
Great product. Easy to use
After struggling for 30 min getting the straps “just right… I pushed off and within 2 min realized the straps made my board feel like it was stuck on the Lilly pads!! I had to remove it and I was back to normal. I can’t say it’s THAT helpful with carrying it to the water to justify the annoyance of it.
Dani W –
This strap is perfect and it makes carrying my board so much easier!
H. S –
I make a ton of Amazon purchases but rarely take the time to rate anything, but I had to leave feedback on this one! Very high quality product with a smart design. Performs better than expected. I consider this essential paddle board gear. I’m so happy with my purchase! Keep up the good work, SUP-Now!
Amazon C –
Such a great product!
Bret C –
Very lightweight and made carrying my 12 ft board and paddle a breeze!!
Audra C –
Just took my SUP Padded Carrier out of the box. I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet. It does fit my 12′ Invert Striker which is an unusually thick board. I love how adjustable this strap is. The clips swivel and the shoulder strap is very nicely padded.
Amazon C –
Great idea! It’s super helpful when I am walking down the street to the water!
Wears great! Made from sturdy material!
Bruce M –
Arrived on time. The Sup carrying strap works perfect when carrying my board from the parking lot to the ocean. The most impressive part of this purchase is Brian from SUP-Now emailed me to make sure I like the product!
This works nicely, even for a heavier hard board. Makes the walk to the river much easier. Well done.
Jay K –
The straps are awesome and you can tell that they are very high quality. The storage bag and the paddle holders are a definite plus and they very well. Unfortunately, my SUP is way too large and heavy to be comfortably carried on my shoulders, so I had to return it, but I would 100% recommend it to anyone. Brian personally reached out to me regarding the product and offered me a full refund given my situation. He completely stands by his product and if you’re considering purchasing these straps, I would highly recommend it.
This is great, makes it much easier to transport board. Carrier arrived quickly as described.
Alicia S –
These are easy to use and work great.
Works for my 11′ inflatable Body Glove SUP board (34″ wide). Simple and easy to use. I was worried about shoulder strap being not long enough for me (6′ tall), but it works well.
excellent product. makes it so simple and easy to carry your board. thanks so much. randy
Great product. Makes carrying the paddle board a breeze for this 60 year old female.
Picture makes the strap look longe for shoulder use. When I used it, the strap is shorter than I thought.
Lynsey K –
Very comfortable, fits perfect, so glad I purchased this strap. This strap also comes in very handy when needing both hands to carry other things down to the water.
Anne m S –
This strap helped me carry my SUP very easily! Good construction and easy to use.
Jaron J –
Easy! Quick delivery. Product looks great. Can’t wait to use them.

Great product, makes carrying your paddlebard an easy task
Marcie B –
The SUP carry strap is just what I needed. I received instructions both by email and on a printed card that came with the strap, so I was able to use the carry strap right away. My SUP weighs 50 pounds and I’m a 5’3 45 year old woman. I was able to easily carry my SUP to the lake. I’m so glad I got this!
After reading reviews from others about strap being to long figured we can adjust it. After receiving the straps, they were built very well. Only issue we had was the straps being to short. Notified SUP of the issue and they sent another strap to make it right. That is what I call service. Straps are very durable. Would purchase for them again.
Amazon C –
I’ve only used this once so far but the minute I strapped it up I loved it! Takes the weight off of my arms and distributes it over my shoulders. Normally I have to stop every now and then a put it down to rest as I’m walking from my car to the beach but not this time. So far this is great! Nice a simple. Not too expensive so I can leave it on the beach with my flip flops and not worry.
Amazon C –
Looks easy to use. Received it on time. Can’t wait until summer to put it to use.
Amazon C –
Great and works for both my boards. Think shoulder strap and great design. Helps even with should trips. I do carry my 12′ about 2 blocks with it and this really makes the trip much easier.

Perfect for a 5 foot 2 person to carry her board!
Silvia I V A –
Again, Perfect for us Shorties!

Excellent quality, anxious to try it out
Within 48 hours of receiving my SUP carrier/storage strap, I received an email from SUP-Now asking if I was happy with my purchase. I was provided with an email address (that was for an ACTUAL PERSON) to use in the event I had questions or concerns. Seriously? What business does this anymore? Most places couldn’t care less if you’re satisfied once the sale is made. I haven’t attached the strap yet, but if the product is even half as good as the customer service, I’ll be thrilled.
Lita M –
Can never get the straps right. Concept is cool but straps are too flimsy to hold the board any better than without the strap. If the board straps were wider and thicker it might work better. Still mess with it occasionally on a long walk but think I should just get the towing wheels.
A real help when carrying board to beach
Arrived quickly. It’s a gift. I’m sure he’ll like it.
Super easy to use, very high quality, shipped in perfect condition! Sturdy and comfortable.
Stav & J –
good product to have especially with longer boards
Carol P –
great invention for my heavy board – got it in 2 days!!
Still hard to carry. I thought these straps would be great. Makes it easier, but for a few dollars more, bought a canoe carrier with wheels, which is the best!
Amazon C –
Item arrived quickly, as advertised and simple to follow instructions to get ready for use immediately. Great company to buy from and outstanding product and service!
Sarah H –
Easy to use and very helpful! I couldn’t carry the paddleboard before and now I can!

Quality materials. Nice comfortable shoulder strap. Extra straps hold your paddle too. Great price!
Bekah B –
This strap worked great. Easy to use and took pressure off my shoulder and fingers
Lynne S –
Makes carrying my board for any distance a breeze! I am a mature but strong, woman; the 10′ 6″ board is not heavy but awkward, especially with any wind. This carry strap makes it comfortable and easy, much more convenient. I don’t stress about walking to a launch spot anymore. Thank you!
Hollie M –
Does the trick! I have a 9’4″ board and I live about an eighth of a mile from the water and this strap is a must. I got tired of trying to carry my board and paddle at the same time. The straps are great quality and it even comes with a small water bottle holder. Yay! Thanks SUP-Now.
Love these! Bought 2 a few weeks ago for 11’2″ paddleboards. I’m 5’4″ tall. Works great! Easy on, easy off (once you get the hang of it). I tried to keep the main body straps on while paddling once. Not advised as the board didn’t track well in the water. But once I figured it out, straps come on and off fast. Highly recommend!
Target C –
The strap wasn’t comfortable for me and my board. I was able to contact the company and they stood by their guarantee! They were great to work with!
Love the new paddleboard strap. I live 3 looong blocks away from the beach launch point, so the paddleboard strap has really saved my hands and forearms from numbness. Quite simple to use, especially after you’ve adjusted the straps the first time. Two snaps, strap on the paddle, and get going. The enclosed instructions are easy to follow, and the company’s customer service also followed up with a PDF version just in case.
I don’t know why it took me so long to order one….definitely a must have. Quality is spot on….very easy to use. Very happy with purchase.
Douglas R –
The strap was perfect for carrying the board and easy to set up. The company individually reached out to assure satisfaction . Nicely done

works really well with 10Ft 4 surfboard!

Hi! I received my strap recently and tried it out. Now I am a VERY new paddle boarder and regardless of what others say, even though it is light compared to its relative size, it gets quite heavy when I have to carry it for any distance. So I got the strap. One thing that attracted me to it was one of the reviewers said it could be left on the board, which was great because otherwise it wouldn’t be practical to take it off, walk it back all the way to my vehicle and then walk back to the water. But when I started out, it seemed harder than usual to steer and move forward. I didn’t know if it was the strap or the fact that the breeze was causing a rippling of the water. So at one point I got in the water to take it off, got back on my board and discovered it was considerably easier. I still don’t know why that would be since the parts of the straps in the water were flush against the board with nothing dragging or sticking out, but that was my experience. So I continue on paddling and I was worried that if I fell off, the strap would be lost forever as it sank to the bottom of the lake. So I threaded it through my flip flops. But alas, it floats! At least it seemed to regardless of my flip flops. So then I thought, it’s no big deal to just take it off and keep it on the board and put it back on, except that it’s not exactly easy to put it back on in a quick manner. I also liked the idea of using it to store the board. In summary, I’m glad I got it because if I should be somewhere where it is not feasible to carry my board for a lengthy distance the strap did make it so much easier, but for where I usually go, I’ll just use the boat ramp to leave my board in the water while I park and then walk back to my board. I hope this isn’t too bad of a review.

Here on the South Shore of Oahu Island in Hawaii, the surf slogan is Pray for surf and Pray for parking as well. At 68 years old, the carrying my longboard was killing me until I got this sling. It’s ridiculously good. No more sore shoulders. The board feels like it lost 10 pounds. Perfect fit! Oh but I did pay $30 for it 8 days ago, now it’s on sale for $25. If Amazon could credit me the 5 bucks, then it would be even better yet. Thanks!!
John M –
Good strap, well made. It’s got the right features and nothing unnecessary (in my opinion). It allows for a variety of board widths. I can easily walk the 2 blocks to the beach, then I fold up the strap and put it in the cargo net on the board. Now, the strap was a little short for me to start. SUP-Now worked with me first to adjust it and then to come up with a solution which included sending me a new strap. I don’t expect perfect products, but I really appreciate it when a company takes time to get feedback and make things right. They even offered a refund as an option, which of course I didn’t need because they’d taken good care of me.
D J –
Awesome strap. Very well built and would highly recommend!!
Amazon C –
This is our second strap and it works well. Great return for the $.
Michelle D –
We purchased this for our new paddle board to help carry it a couple blocks to the lakes we visit on occasion. The strap itself is comfortable and makes it so much easier to carry the board. Especially with 3 kids and all of the other things that need to be carried as well. Also love that it has a space to carry the oar and you can also hang it by the strap as well. Will update as time goes on as to its durability but so far so good!
James L D –
Working well so far just a bit awkward to get established on the board when transporting.
I had a chance to use the SUP strap last weekend. It was easy to attach to the SUP and the adjustable shoulder strap made it easy to adjust the height of my SUP so that I could carry it without worrying about the board hitting the ground. The strap is wide and does take some of the pressure off your shoulder. I am 5’5″ and weight 115lbs. My board is 10′ 6″ and I was able to carry it pretty easily. I also use the strap to hang my SUP on hooks I installed in my garage. This is and added bonus as I didn’t need to buy a separate system to store my board. The instructions that came with the strap were clear and the photos were very helpful. The only negative I found was that the straps did not stay really tight on my board. As I was carrying it the straps loosened a bit and the board slipped toward the back. It wasn’t a huge deal but is something I needed to stop and adjust.
Great way to carry the paddle board. Very sturdy and easy to use. Would definitely recommend!!
Very pleased with the purchase. Makes carrying my board to the beach a breeze. Also love that the paddle can be strapped to the side as well. My only issue would be that the shoulder pad could be a little softer. It is padded well, but the material along the edge can feel a little tough on the skin.

well done!..easy set up for efficient transport
