Why not start summer off with the purchase of a new inflatable paddle board? Read our iRocker Inflatable ALL-AROUND Stand Up Paddle Board review to see if it could be the choice for you.
The iRocker Inflatable ALL-AROUND Stand Up Paddle Board is a great looking inflatable stand up paddle board (iSUP), and has a price to match.
This inflatable paddle board is made with a triple layer drop stitch technology. This is military grade, and you’ll find it very difficult to damage this board during every day paddle boarding use. In saying that, as we mention in every iSUP review, this doesn’t mean you can just drop it on sharp rocks etc. Take care of this paddle board, and it should last many years.
iRocker claim their inflatable paddle board can be safely used in surf up to three foot (3′) high. In our experience, you’d not want to go in any surf bigger than this, and tend to stick to around the 2 foot (2′) mark.
The iRocker also has a Sport model, which is two inches (2″) thinner than this model. The Sport will be slightly faster and maneuverable, but the All Around is more stable in all types of water conditions. The iRocker Inflatable ALL-AROUND Stand Up Paddle Board is perfect for all types of paddle boarders, with the Sport model being best suited for more experienced paddlers.
If desired, you can purchase a kayak seat and the kayak blade, for a complete kayak conversion. The seat is easily attached by using the built-in D-rings.
There are currently three color options available – blue with white stripes, white with gray stripes, and a great looking aqua color pattern, which does seems to sell out fairly quick.back to menu ↑
The iRocker Inflatable ALL-AROUND Stand Up Paddle Board is 10 foot (10”) long, 32 inches (32”) wide, and 6 inches (6”) Thick.
The board weighs 22 pounds (22 lbs) when inflated, and has a weight limit of up to 350 pounds (350 lbs). This high weight limit gives this iSUP a myriad of uses. You could take the dog for a paddle, go two-up with the kids, and get your Chakra on with some SUP yoga.
The wide tail ensures extra stability, while the shape of the board still allows for a fast tracking experience in a straight line. This board is perfect for the lake!
The iRocker Inflatable ALL-AROUND Stand Up Paddle Board feels very similar to a hard board when fully inflated (to 15 PSI), but has only half the weight.
When rolled up, the dimensions of this iSUP is 35 inches (35″) wide, with a 12 inch (12″) diameter.
Dimensions of the included backpack are approximately 37″ x 16″ x 13″, which makes it ideal for various forms of travel, be it in the trunk of a car, or on a plane.back to menu ↑
The iRocker Inflatable ALL-AROUND Stand Up Paddle Board comes with everything required to start your paddle boarding adventure. These include:
- Floating, 3 piece fiberglass paddle
- Dual action hand pump
- Back pack
- Slide in center fin
- Diamond groove traction pad
- Mounting D-rings for optional kayak seat
- Bungee cargo area at front of board
The fiberglass paddle weighs half as much as a standard aluminum paddle, and as an added bonus, can float – a great addition when out paddle boarding in rougher conditions.
The paddle breaks down into three pieces for easy storage and transport. The blade edges are constructed with a resilient rubber material which helps reduce blade chipping.
The included dual action hand pump makes inflating your paddle board a breeze. You use the dual action mode to initially push air into the board, and then switch to the single action when the PSI begins to increase. This makes pumping much easier for those last few PSI.
The inflation valve is a Halkey Roberts valve.back to menu ↑
