NIXY Newport G4 10’6 REVIEW

  • GLIDE & SPEED

NIXY Newport G4 10’6 glides well through the water and fairly well in terms of speed.

Compared to other boards, its top speed is a little bit slower than the iROCKER All-Around 11′.

  • STABILITY

For beginners around 150 lbs, this board is fairly stable.

The larger you are, the more experience you need to have to stay stable.

  • TRACKING

Due to the well-positioned fins, NIXY Newport G4 10’6 tracks fairly well even under speed.

  • MANEUVERABILITY

With its lighter weight of just 21 lbs and its slightly shorter length, this board is quite maneuverable and easy to change directions on.

  • PORTABILITY

Carrying this board deflated inside its bag feels good on the shoulders due to its lighter weight and well-padded shoulder and hip straps.

If you get tired, you still have the triple-wheel roller bag for easy pulling as a trolley.

  • EASE OF INFLATION

Using the kit hand pump, inflating this board takes about 6 minutes.

As with all inflatable paddle boards, inflating it using a hand pump remains always quite a workout, especially for smaller individuals during the last bits of air.

  • ACCESSORIES

This board comes with everything (listed above) included, to start having fun on the water right out of the box.

Starting by what I liked most, this kit paddle is carbon fiber, making it amongst the best overall SUP paddles.

The paddle has little to no twist throughout the paddle and is adjustable, making it usable by different-height paddlers and lightweight at only 25 oz, which helps a lot at paddling way longer before being tired.

The bag easily fits the board and all accessories. Its wide opening makes getting the board in and out simple.

It’s also comfortable to carry with its extra padding on the back and on the shoulder straps.

The included Typhoon hand pump is a double-chamber, triple-action pump makes inflates the board to the recommended air pressure with no problem, even for smaller individuals.

Another great thing about the thing pump is its feet’ ability to fold up and unscrew the handles for easy storing.

You also get a safety leash and a repair kit.

  • Beginners and intermediate paddlers seeking a SUP for varied water conditions.
  • Fitness people looking for a full length deck pad board to practice SUP fitness activities.
  • Beginners looking for a board to quickly feel confident and comfortable on.
  • Firt-time paddlers in an area with lots of wind or wake.

GREAT IN/FOR:

  • Flat water.
  • Ocean.
  • Recreational paddling.

NIXY Venice G4 10’6 REVIEW

  • GLIDE & SPEED

NIXY Venice G4 10’6 glides quite well but it takes a little more effort to propel forward.

Compared to other paddle boards, NIXY Newport G4 10’6 glide quite well.

Due to its width of 34”, this board isn’t fast and not much efficient through the water.

  • STABILITY

NIXY Venice G4 10’6 is ultra-stable for cruising, fitness activities, paddling with a kid or pet, or fishing. And it remains the same for about any sized adult due to its wider width of 34”.

  • TRACKING

NIXY Venice G4 10’6 is good at keeping a straight line on the water. But tracking is something that has more to do with the paddler than the board.

Smaller paddlers may have some difficulties paddling vertically to the board due to the board width of 34”.

  • MANEUVERABILITY

The short length of this board makes it has great maneuverability even for most novice paddlers.

  • PORTABILITY

This board doesn’t feel cumbersome to carry or transport because it’s very light at only 23 lbs and rolls up into a compact package.

Carrying it inflated to and from the water is easy pulling as a trolley.

  • EASE OF INFLATION

Inflating the NIXY Venice G4 10’6 to 15 PSI using the kit hand pump takes about 6 minutes, which is quite fast.

As with any inflatable paddle board, inflating this board remains a bit of work.

  • ACCESSORIES

This board package includes everything (listed above) needed to start paddleboarding right out of the box.

The kit bag is very well padded, easy to carry on your shoulder for short hikes, and really easy to pull with the heavy-duty wheels.

The paddle you get is extremely lightweight (25 oz) and sturdy for less shoulder and arm fatigue due to the full carbon construction.

It also has no twisting and feels great to use with its comfortable t-grip handle.

The kit pump is efficient and works great, with removable handles and foldable foot pegs for easy storing.

You also receive a safety leash, repair kit, and a user manual.

NIXY Huntington G4 9’6 REVIEW

  • GLIDE & SPEED

NIXY Huntington G4 9’6 glides fairly well.

It accelerates fast but maintains a slow speed, which is expected because it is not designed to be a fast board.

  • STABILITY

Despite its narrow width, this board is very stable for riders who weigh 200 lbs or less.

For larger riders, it feels less stable due to the board’s smaller size.

Compared to other boards, NIXY Huntington G4 9’6 isn’t quite as stable as the NIXY Huntington Ultra Compact G4 9’6.

  • TRACKING

This board’s wide width and short length, combined with the single fin make it lack in terms of tracking abilities.

  • MANEUVERABILITY

The shape and the design of this board make it fairly easy to turn and paddle through obstacles.

  • PORTABILITY

It’s extremely lightweight at only 18.75 lbs make it easy to carry around your shoulder.

If you get tired, you still have the backpack wheels for easy rolling.

  • EASE OF INFLATION

Inflating the NIXY Huntington G4 9’6 using the kit paddle is efficient and takes about 7 minutes.

While inflating most inflatable paddle boards is quite a workout, the third stage of the kit hand pump makes the job easy for just about anyone.

  • ACCESSORIES

This board comes with everything needed (listed above) right out of the box to start having fun on the water.

Starting with my most liked accessory, the carbon hybrid no-twist paddle is extremely lightweight (25 oz) and feels incredibly solid for an adjustable paddle.

The kit hand pump is amongst the best paddle board pumps on the market.

It is a dual-chamber triple-action pump for fast and efficient inflation and has removable handles/foldable legs for easy storage.

The bag you get in this package is comfortable, durable, big enough to fits everything inside, and has many pockets for accessories and organization.

You also get a safety leash and a repair kit.

NIXY Huntington Ultra-Compact G4 9’6 REVIEW

  • GLIDE & SPEED

Weighing just 18.75 lbs, this board is really easy to accelerate, but its short length and width of 32” make it remain slow in the water.

  • STABILITY

Even larger paddlers have no problem maintaining their balance because the NIXY Huntington Ultra-Compact G4 9’6 is very stable.

  • TRACKING

With its two-fin setup, the Ultra-Compact G4 9’6 tracks much better than expected.

You may get different results because tracking has more to do with how you paddle than the board itself.

  • MANEUVERABILITY

NIXY Huntington Ultra-Compact G4 9’6 is extremely maneuverable and easy to turn, making it ideal to explorer hard-to-reach flat water bodies.

  • PORTABILITY

Carrying this board on your shoulder inside its much smaller backpack is easy and much more comfortable due to its lighter weight.

  • EASE OF INFLATION

Regardless of the individual size, inflating this board using the kit pump is made a little easy with the dual-chamber triple-action features.

even with the best hand pump in the market, inflating an inflatable paddle board with an electric SUP hand pump is way much easier.

  • ACCESSORIES

The NIXY Huntington Ultra-Compact G4 9’6 comes with everything you will need to start exploring and having fun on the water.

Starting with the amazing paddle, the one you get with this board is not good as a kit paddle, it’s amongst the best SUP paddle on the market.

The paddle connections are firm and come in four pieces for easier packing or to be used as a kid’s SUP paddle using only 3 of the 4 pieces.

The backpack you get with the Ultra-Compact G4 is much smaller, compared to others, and has a heavy-duty grab handle which is very comfortable in the hand.

The bag s shoulder pads, back pad, and waist belt are lightly padded for stability and comfort while remaining lightweight.

The kit pump is a dual-chamber triple-action one, that makes inflating the board faster and easier, especially for smaller or lighter paddlers with a built-in pressure gauge to avoid overinflating it.

You also get a safety leash, repair kit, and a user manual.

NIXY Manhattan G4 12’6 REVIEW

  • GLIDE & SPEED

NIXY Manhattan G4 12’6 swiftly glides through the water.

It is also really fast due to its extremely streamlined shape and its width of just 28”.

  • STABILITY

This board can be stable if you are really light or moving at a reasonable pace.

For beginners, it is not very stable because it is very narrow, making it requires more skill and balance to paddle.

  • TRACKING

The NIXY Manhattan G4 12’6 is very good at keeping a straight line while paddling due to the overall streamlined shape that helps get very vertical paddle strokes.

  • MANEUVERABILITY

This board is not designed to be maneuverable but it is still fairly responsive with the advanced turn techniques.

  • PORTABILITY

The fairly small package and the lighter weight of this board make it feel comfortable carrying it on the shoulder.

Carrying it inflated to and from the water is comfortable with the center carry handle.

If you get tired after paddling, you can easily roll it using the wheels on the bottom of the bag.

  • EASE OF INFLATION

Inflating the NIXY Manhattan G4 12’6 using the kit hand pump is not too bad and can be done in just over 7 minutes.

  • ACCESSORIES

This board comes with everything you will need, so no additional thing to buy to start SUP paddling.

You get a lightweight 3-piece carbon shaft SUP paddle that only weighs 25 oz that helps feel less tired in long-distance paddling.

The bag it comes with is easy to access, has multiple pockets and padded handles, padded shoulder and waist straps, and very sturdy wheels.

The hand pump is powerful with its dual-chamber triple-stage features that make reaching the last few PSI a little bit easier for small individuals.

You also get a safety leash, 3-fins, and a repair kit.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST NIXY PADDLE BOARD

STABILITY

A SUP board with a volume of twice your weight in kg will be pretty stable because 1 liter of volume will float 1kg of weight.

BOARD WIDTH

For all-around use, get an inflatable SUP board between 30” – 35” in width.

PADDLE

The lighter the paddle you use the less tired you will feel while paddling.

The material used in the shaft affects a lot the weight of the paddle.

  • Carbon is known to be lightweight, strong, and gives more distance per stroke.
  • Aluminum, which is found usually in affordable paddle boards is rigid but makes the paddle heavy.
