Mats for supping
What kind of sleeping mat do you take with you on a sup trip? A compact, lightweight mat that offers enough insulation for what you are going to do with it, is a good sup mat. Space is a thing to take into account for a trip on a paddle board. But you can take quite a lot with you in large waterproof luggage bags. The bigger your waterproof bag or bags (or the more space and weight you want to invest in a good night's sleep), the easier it is to opt for more comfort. The lightest mats are around 50cm, if you want a bit more width, a mat is often around 65cm. Two person mats are also available. The standard length of a mat is about 180cm, but they come in lengths of over 2 metres. If a foam layer provides the insulation, the type of mat is a self-inflating mat. These self-inflatables are very stable. If the construction or a fibre layer provides the insulation, then it is an airbed. Airbeds are often more compact and lighter.
