Features

The Tower Paddle Boards Adventurer 2 inflatable SUP feels like you are paddling a hard board when in the water. This inflatable stand up paddle board (iSUP) inflates to 25 PSI (although 10-11 PSI is generally recommended for most users). It has a weight capacity of up to 400 lbs. (180 kg).

The most noticeable difference between this Adventurer inflatable SUP and the previous model is the dimensions. Whereas the older model was 9 foot and ten inches long (9’ 10”), the new Tower Paddle Boards Adventurer 2 inflatable SUP is 10 feet and 4 inches in length (10’ 4”). This gives you extra buoyancy in the water, tends to travel faster, as well as giving you more control over the board.

Dimensions

As mentioned above, the Tower Paddle Boards Adventurer 2 inflatable SUP is 10’ 4” long, and is six inches (6”) thick. By being on average 2 inches thicker than most other inflatable paddle boards, you are getting extra buoyancy, more weight limit, and dry feet! This inflatable SUP is also 32 inches (32”) wide.

When you are not using this inflatable SUP, you can roll it up and store it away – the result is not much bigger than a rolled up sleeping bag – just over 1 foot (1’) long by 33 inches (33”) wide). If you do not have much storage space, or need to use public transport to get to the water, the Tower Paddle Boards Adventurer 2 inflatable SUP is an ideal choice.

Performance

The Tower Paddle Boards Adventurer 2 inflatable SUP is not designed for those wanting extreme sessions out on the water. You won’t be able surf this on large waves etc., but is great for paddling on flat water (lakes and slow moving rivers). Of course, if you did want to go surfing on this inflatable paddle board, just keep to waves under 3-4 feet in height, and you should be fine (although please invest in a leash if you are going to try this).

This board is very durable as well. Made from drop-stich construction, you can rest assured that this inflatable paddle board will take most dings (and accidental drops) thrown at it.

Being 6” thick, you will also find the boards is much easier to handle in choppier conditions.
