Tower Adventurer iSUP - 9'10"

Start your own adventures with the amazing Adventurer Inflatable SUP. Better looking, plus smarter design... and at an almost unbelievable price because we sell it direct! Not only is the Tower Adventurer inflatable stand up paddle board one of, if not THE, best looking inflatable SUP on the market, at 6" thick, it represents a giant leap forward in inflatable SUP rigidity, which makes all the difference in the world. Finally, with the introduction of the Tower Adventurer, an inflatable SUP is not only a viable option, it may be a better option than EPS/Epoxy boards for anyone that doesn't live right by the surf!

A Giant Leap forward in Inflatable SUP Design Frankly, virtually all 4" inflatable SUPs (which is pretty much all inflatable SUPs on the market) leave a lot to be desired. That's putting it nicely. They sag in the middle and ride low in the water so you end up standing in a puddle of cold water, which is miserable. The sagging and undulating ride also slows you down. The 6" thick, military grade Tower Adventurer Inflatable SUP is dramatically more rigid, plus it floats higher in the water so no wet feet. But this is only one of many advances that set the Tower Adventurer Inflatable SUP apart from the competition. Amazing Rigidity The Tower Adventurer Inflatable SUP is made from extremely rugged materials like those youd find on the highly regarded Zodiac boats and extreme river rafts. The amazing rigidity in the Adventurer is created by thousands of vertically oriented strands of identical length that connect the top deck to the bottom. When inflated, they form a structure that has the rigidity of a piece of plywood, and the thicker you go the exponentially more rigid it gets. You'll be amazed. We can literally put the front tip of the 9'10" x 6" Tower Adventurer on one chair and the rear tip on another chair and a 200 lb person can stand in the middle and you can barely see the thing flex. Do this with most 4" inflatable SUPs and they will taco almost to the floor. Even 3/4" plywood flooring would probably break over this almost 10' span. A Viable EPS/Epoxy Board Alternative - We're not kidding! Traditionally, inflatable SUPs were only a consideration for traveling - store one in the cuddy cabin on your yacht, take it with you on the plane, or haul it into that secret mountain lake or river and youll can stand up paddle board in the farthest corners of the earth. With the rigidity of the Tower Adventurer, an inflatable SUP is now also a viable EPS/Epoxy board alternative for anyone who isn't a die-hard surfer. Benefits of an Inflatable SUP over an EPS/Epoxy board - Easier to store - When rolled up, it's 1 foot in diameter and 33" wide. - Indestructible - Never worry again about dings and board cracks. I've literally thrown these things off a 2nd story deck and I frequently set it down anywhere (gravel, a parking lot, even on cement stairs). - Easier to transport - No need for roof racks. About the size of a rolled sleeping bag, it easily fits in any car or boat, can be checked on a plane, and can even be strapped onto a bicycle or motorcycle - Softer - You can literally play bumper boats with these. Kids can jump from one board to the other like they're jumping on an inner tube. You won't get knocked out in the waves either. - Easy on the feet - While very rigid, the air does cushion your feet a lot more than a hard board, no matter how good the deck pad is. - Less expensive - Which also makes it a great idea as a second board for travel or guests.
