Mule Transport System

One of the biggest issues with stand up paddle boards is the fact that they are huge. Getting them around and storing them is a serious concern. Carrying a regular 8 longboard (which is maybe 22 wide and 2 thick) under your arm down to your favorite beach break can be tiresome enough if its a bit of a trek. If you live 8 blocks from the beach, even more so. Now try that with a 12 long, 30 wide and 5 thick SUP that weighs in at a tad over 30 lbs. These things are so wide that they typically put a hand slide in the center because nobodys arm is long enough to carry it like a standard surfboard. Im lucky enough to live right on the beach at the bay, so I can drop my stand up paddle board into the water out front and take a 10 minute paddle across the bay towards the ocean strand. Then I have to haul the board about the equivalent of a block or two and Im usually switching hands by the time I make it to the waves, especially if theres a cross wind. The take away is that transportation is a serious concern for SUP enthusiasts.

The Mule Transport System is a simple, yet elegant solution for not only transporting your stand up paddle board to your favorite drop-in point, but also to pile on all of your gear as well. Its basically a set of tube tires with plastic mag wheels on a lightweight, padded crossbar/axel that straps onto one end of your stand up paddle board. You throw another canvas like material nose piece over the nose of your board and a strap cinches the two together securing everything into one piece. There is a loop strap out the nose of the Mule that acts as a carrying handle, or better yet attaches to a bicycle seat (or a scooter or motorcycle or four-wheeler if youre backroading it to a hidden away lake) as a tow behind. Suddenly you not only have an effortless transportation solution for your stand up paddle board, but youve got a platform to pile on all your stuff (ice chests, beach towels and gear, tents, whatever). Its designed for low speed, and while I wouldnt necessarily recommend it, Ive heard of people taking these 55 mph behind a motorcycle. Not exactly street legal, but neither is sitting on a longboard on top of a scooter seat as it dangles out the back 6 feet and youve going 30 mph around the Hawaiian Islands

For international travelers, the Mule Transport System is a Godsend. Its turns your typically unwieldy stand up paddle board into a lightweight EZ-cart that you can stack all of your luggage on top and wheel around an unfamiliar airport and perhaps town if need be. The wheels are even off-road friendly.

The upper nose piece of the Mule has a shoelace like adjustment feature that allows it to fit the nose shape of pretty much any board. It also features a pouch to hold surf essentials like wax, a leash, and personal items. Once you reach the beach, everything can be broken down in just a couple minutes. The wheels have quick release cotter pins. Disassemble, and toss all the Mule Transportation System parts into the provided carrying bag, then loop your bike lock thru the bag handle or individually thru the mag wheels depending on the place youre leaving it. The whole Mule system only weighs about 5 lbs and packs in a 12"x28"x3" travel bag for easy storage.
