Features

One of only a few quality “touring” stand up paddle boards on the market today, the Isle 12 ft 6 inch Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board is an excellent option for flat lake paddle boarding. It tracks (goes in a straight line) great, and is very stable. It does, however, take time to turn, so be aware of that if heading towards something you want to avoid!

The board inflates to 15psi, but is quite stiff and ready to use at 12psi. It can hold up to 300lb (136kg), and can support multiple riders.

Dimensions

The Isle 12 ft 6 inch Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board is12 feet (12’) six inches (6”) long, and is thirty inches (30”) wide. At six inches (6”) thick, this board is very stable and will not be rocked easily when in choppy water. In fact, due ot the touring shape, the Isle 12 ft 6 inch Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board slices through water at an excellent rate, for an inflatable SUP.

The board has plenty of volume at 259L, and weighs in at 29lb (13.5kg) inflated.

When not in use, this inflatable SUP can be deflated down to a size of 1 foot in length, and 36 inches wide – excellent dimensions if you do not have much in the way of storage space. In fact, one user reported using a small suitcase to store and transport it!

Performance

This touring paddle board is much faster than most regular shaped inflatable SUPS, due to its sharp nose dimensions, however, due to the tough material it is made from, is not as fast as some more expensive touring inflatable SUPs. Unless you are planning on racing the Isle 12 ft 6 inch Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board, you would never know the difference. Oh, and the military grade material is nearly impossible to damage!
