Atoll 11ft Inflatable SUP Review
Inflatable SUPs are rivalling their solid SUP brothers and are quickly rising to the top as a go-to paddle board for many popular reasons. Let’s delve into why the Atoll Cruiser Deluxe has made such a strong impression on the SUPping crowd!
First of all, the SUP board is a beast. It’s 11 feet long, 32 inches wide, and 6 inches thick. This makes it an excellent cross-over SUP for various water conditions aplenty! Be it flat water or surf, you’ll have the only board you’ll ever need to cross the bounds.
Although it’s long, it’s still very lightweight, as are most iSUPs. But, this one has been made with a brand new technology to Atoll, the Fusion Light Construction. It means that the iSUP is 30 percent lighter than comparable models. So, don’t judge this board by its length!
Even though it’s inflatable, the board doesn’t lack in ultimate durability and protection. Both the top and underside has been layered in a second patented material for added stiffness and rigidity. The top has been constructed with EVA foam for softness and easy gripping, and it’s all tied together to hold 15 PSI with the Korean drop-stitch seams.
You’ll have your iSUP fully inflated with the dual action, high pressure Bravo hand pump. This means you’re pumping air when your pushing down and pulling up! You’re knocking out two birds with one stone! It’s a win-win!
The iSUP is loaded with on-board features, extra accessories, and everything you need to get paddling right now!
- Fusion Light Construction
- Complete package
- Air occasionally leaks (extremely rare)
Best Suited For
This iSUP is made for everyone. While smaller persons might find the length intimidating, its thickness, width, and center fin will more than accommodate for a beginner’s lack of skill. But, intermediate and pros will enjoy the cross-over benefits that enable them to enjoy both recreational and flat water cruising to surfing the waves of the Tropics!
Literally, every buyer of the Atoll Cruiser Deluxe is ecstatic with their investment! While it may seem to be on the more expensive end for an iSUP, it’s actually loaded with value and is a steal for the price. Users love every aspect about the lightweight, durable, and rigid SUP. It’s a breeze to store, a breeze to inflate, and a breeze to use on the water!
There is honestly no complaint about the Atoll iSUP! There was one instance about a valve and seam leak but nothing that couldn’t be fixed with the included repair kit. Also, Atoll is known for their excellent customer service and their included 2 year warranty! You’re literally covering your arse and your board when you go with them. Every penny is treated as triple its value when you buy this paddle board!
Frequently Asked Questions
Even though you can find the Atoll Cruiser Deluxe on sale and for a steal, it wouldn’t be fair to compare it to boards in the discounted price range.
So, to put it head to head against its peers, the BIC Sport ACE-TEC Cross SUP is pretty darn close in comparison even though its a solid hard top SUP. Its entire design from the keeled nose to the full rail-to-rail volume has been expertly constructed for cross-over sport. But, be aware, it’s not like BIC to throw in any extra freebies – it’s just the board!
However, to truly match the Atoll in accessories and performance is the Red Paddle Co Rider – the 2017 model! It’s another cross-over iSUP that’s excellent for a wide range of conditions. Just don’t forget to buy a paddle for it!
- Fast and easy to inflate
- 3 carry handles
- 14 d-rings on board
