Ancheer Inflatable SUP Review
While Ancheer and Anchor paddle boards can both be mixed up pretty easily, Anchor is a very expensive brand that’s worth buying from if you’ve had time to save up. However, Ancheer offers up more budget-friendly SUPs for the novice who can’t afford to front the cash on a first-time board.
This is where the 10 foot DA-01 comes in. They could have done with a better model name, maybe something catchy like “Envy” or “The Banking Board” due to its dazzling green skin! But, never-mind, the “DA” will do just fine.
Refreshingly, this iSUP actually has a known and established company behind its name, and it’s the only SUP available by the brand as yet. So, first off, you know it’s going to be a legitimate buy backed by its 30 day no-risk, money-back guarantee and the 1-year material warranty. Whew!
Secondly, with just one look at the brilliant SUP and you’ll know it’s going to be a beast on the water. The 10 foot long, 29 inch wide, and 6 inch thick iSUP is slightly rockered at the nose and slim enough to handle crossover terrain!
If a little surfing, paddling, SUP yoga, and fishing sounds like everything you want in an iSUP, then you’ll have no qualms about the low cost! It really can be that good to be true!
Military grade PVC and drop stitch construction pieces this inflatable vessel together to create a robust, rigid, and super-stiff SUP. It’s also been made with UV resistant and anti-corrosion technologies to ensure you get more out of it than you paid!

Who is the Ancheer 10′ Paddle Board Best Suited For?
This iSUP is definitely for calmer waters and all-round use. Yes, it’s unique dimensions allows for more stability for beginners and intermediates, but it’s by no means a white water rafting SUP.
While it can handle medium surf and some crossover terrain, you’d get the best functions out of it with recreational, all-round SUPping. If you want a board that can handle more of the rough stuff then we have lots of different types of paddle boards reviewed here.
Customer Reviews of the Ancheer SUP
SUPpers who have already bought the DA thinks it’s worth exactly what it’s priced for! It gets the job done, gets the kids out in the water, and gives adults a change of scenery for a workout.
The masses also say they love the ease of inflation. This iSUP only takes five minutes to blow up with the dual action pump. It makes a world of difference to those struggling to inflate for five to 10 minutes longer on other boards!
However, promotional discounts are awesome for reviewers to get a great price and companies to get positive feedback. But, many potential buyers can be turned off by that. This is one such company that does offer products in exchange for feedback.
But, there are plenty more buyers that didn’t receive the promotional discount and still love the iSUP! That’s gotta mean something!
Ancheer DA SUP FAQ’s
How many Fins does the iSUP come with?
The DA can function on the tri fin system setup. The center fin is removable and the side two fins are permanently fixed to the board.
What is the ISO Quality Control System?
This is Ancheer’s promise of warranty. They’ll offer you 30 days to test it out if you like it. They also insure the board for one year for defects in materials and workmanship.
What is the Weight Capacity of the DA iSUP?
The Ancheer DA iSUP can hold up to 350 pounds. Load up the entire family for a wet-filled afternoon on the lake!
Does the DA paddle board have on-deck D-Rings?
Yes! The Ancheer iSUP features five on-board d-rings with a bungee for deck storage and whatever else you want to use it for.
Can you do SUP Yoga on the DA Inflatable Paddle Board?
You can! If you consider a standard yoga mat is 24 inches wide and the iSUP is 29 inches wide, you’ll have a little bit of wiggle room. The board is also 6″ thick which lends a huge helping hand to stability.
Does the iSUP have Multiple Carry Handles?
Conveniently, the iSUP has three carry handles on board. There’s one in the center for one-man carrying. There is also one on the nose and one on the tail of the iSUP for two-man carrying.
How much does the iSUP Weigh?
The iSUP weighs only 32 pounds. While there are other inflatable boards that are a third lighter than this one, it’s also much lighter than solid SUPs and you don’t have to strap it. It still features the storing and transportation benefits of an inflatable SUP.
How Long is the Paddle?
The 3-piece adjustable paddle starts at 63 inches and can almost be extended to the full length of the iSUP. There’s also a locking mechanism that keeps your adjusted length in place once you’ve set it.
Comparable Boards to the Ancheer DA
The iRocker Sport iSUP is a worthy rival of the Ancheer DA. It’s only one inch wider than the DA but matches it in length, thickness, and even weight capacity. Better yet, it only weighs 20 pounds!
Full price, you’d be paying twice the price of the DA, but on sale, you can practically slash those costs and match the Ancheer budget! What’s better than that? We’ve already given this iSUP a once-over. To see our full report on it, we’ve got you covered right here!
The XTERRA iSUP will also fall into your price-restrained budget when it’s on sale. As one of the best brands in the world, it would be a steal if you can catch it with discounted prices. It’s a 10′ x 30″ x 4″ inflatable SUP that’s only 29 pounds.
It will max out at around 200 pounds though. However, there’s absolutely zero complaints about this fantastic ride!
- Easy to inflate
- 350 lb max weight
