LiftSUP handle, hands down the best thing I've ever come across for anyone wanting to carry and board in one hand and your gear/ paddle in the other. Worth checking out.

When you are trying to solve the problem of carrying your SUP to the waters edge there are multiple contributing factors to this problem. The main factor that causes the most issues with individuals is the weight. The second factor is finding a way to carry the paddle while trying to carry your board at the same time.
The third factor is ease of use. The most natural way to carry any type of board is under your arm and if you can pair that ease of use while eliminating the issues of weight and paddle transport you have a brilliantly engineered product.

That product is the JAX TRAILER

Can you think of a happier creature than the lowly barnacle? These clingy little “reef potatos” enjoy a life of simply sucking and waiting for food to flow in. If only our lives could be so easy…. Now it is, Standup Paddleboarders have harnessed the suckiness of the BarKnuckle™ for good. The BarKnuckle™ is How to Carry Your Standup Paddle Board!™ Nothing is faster or easier. Simply place your BarKnuckle™ on the bottom of your SUP, flip the heavy duty suction levers down, clip that precious wave spanker in place and finally no more awkwardness while hauling your oversized behemoth of a SUP and paddle. Grab you SUP and paddle with one hand or use included shoulder strap and say “look ma, no hands!” Now both hands are freed up to tweet, slather your face with SPF-900, use your binoculars, whatever. No tools necessary and it comes off just as easily. No worries, the BarKnuckle™ sucks hard but will never leave a hickey. This new Barknuckle™ isn’t done once it gets to your favorite spot either, it loves to go for rides. Suck the BarKnuckle™ to the surface of your board and It becomes an instant place to secure everything you’ll ever need on that board. Going for the long haul paddle? Bring along a yummy lunch, six pack, heck… even your CB (ok, maybe just your cell phone). Fishing from your SUP is a blast and now with the BarKnuckle™ lending a hand you’ll never have to worry about where to put your tackle or your stringer full of crappie. The BarKnuckle™ is a camera hound too so however you decide to let him help out, be sure to take photos cause’ we love to see how he gets in the action
