Guru Rating: 9.4/10
Don’t stuff your nose up at an inflatable device if you haven’t yet experienced the convenience and ease of owning a SUP like this one!
The Adventurer has been pieced together with military-grade PVC and reinforced with drop-stitch construction that can withstand the harshest abuse of surf punishment. It’s been through rigorous testing processes that include being thrown off buildings, run over by cars, and shored onto rocky terrains, and it lives on spruce and spry as ever. If it can pass all of that, you’re definitely going to live through some torrential waves without being worse for wear!
Its inflatable design is sturdy and rigid belying its non-solid body. You’ll stand tall, comfortable, and balance-supported thanks to Tower Paddle Board’s innovative 6 inch board thickness – not the conventional 4 inches. The density improvement makes this board 4 times more rigid than other SUPs on the market!
It’s robust enough to tote twice the amount of weight of regular boards too! It has a maximum weight capacity of 350 pounds, so if losing weight was part of your New Years goal for a beach-worthy body, screw it!
Since this is a package deal, you’ll be getting the super sleek board, pump, and 3-piece adjustable fiberglass paddle. Thrown into the purchase is a 2-year warranty from Tower Paddle Boards to protect your investment.
You can dare to surf those elusive waves now!

Best Suited For
The best thing about this inflatable SUP is that it can cater to beginners, intermediates, and even surfing pros. It’s made to perform at its best whether you’re gliding on the mildest of ripples or daring the most vexatious waves!
The 9’10” length is pretty standard, but the max weight capacity, and rugged rigidness of the board will be ideal for every fanatic boarder from the petite to the buff!
Hundreds of SUPpers can’t rave enough about the weight and storage benefits of the inflatable board. It’s by far one of the most convenient features about it. They also love the 6 inch thickness that makes a huge difference on the water for stability without getting your feet wet.
But, some users have said the glue seams come apart, the pump is difficult to use for smaller persons, and unscrewing the fin when deflating is tedious.
Other than that, as a SUP board, it has excellent value, supreme buoyancy, and it’s as firm as a hard board! The Adventurer is a no-brainer if you appreciate money well spent!
Frequently Asked Questions
ISLE Airtech Inflatable 10′ iSUP Board is another all-round SUP that’s great for flat water and small wave supping! It features the 6 inch board thickness but lacks max weight capacity topping out at 240 pounds.
However, the Atoll SUP is 11 feet long for taller riders and can even tote around 330 pounds, but you’re looking at a rise in price for the extra specs. It is super light and Atoll Paddle does throw some extra freebies in the mix to justify the extra cost.
The iRocker Paddle Board is the most comparable SUP to the Adventurer in thickness, weight capacity, and build, but it’s slightly cheaper and they also throw in an iRocker carry bag too. The paddle is something of note as it’s an aluminum paddle that’s adjustable and floats!
