Does the guy in the last picture come with the inflatable?

Haha Claire! That’s our shaper Galen. Keep in mind he only dates surfers, so you better get yourself a board if you don’t have one already… but I think he’s got a girlfriend at the moment.

Here’s a rather detailed review from a customer. It was unsolicited, but he’s a river guide so he takes his equipment pretty seriously. Some good insight in here:

Is what I had listed before

Is the correction the company listed below, so I’m correcting this entry.

Sorry, I’m out of practice, hope the regulars are back later today to post more info on the different woots. I left this one for last due to the company providing help here.

My husband and I bought these this summer. We have taken them out on the lake and down the Snake River (Jackson, WY). We LOVE them! Because they are inflatable, Im not worried about hitting a rock and cracking the shell.

You’re on an inflatable and you’re not worried about hitting a rock ? I always thought you would always be worried because it’s an inflatable.

Is this board suitable for beach/surf paddling or only recommended for use on flat water?

WhatsamataU - That link you provided is to the board only version of this product. The Woot deal is on the package - http://www.towerpaddleboards.com/iSUP-p/bd-twr-adv-pkg.htm

We sell them independently of the pump and paddle for rental fleets (they might get 5-10 boards and only 1-2 pumps, and they might have their own paddles.

Longhairs9 - Glad to hear that you and your husband are enjoying your boards! Yes, these are made out of the same materials as whitewater rafts, so they are made for pulling up over rocks without an issue. It’s really an industrial grade inflatable… not your backyard pool toy.

Cantharis – A lot of people naturally think like you do here, but the reality is that “non-inflatable” paddle boards are typically made like surfboards out of fiberglass and epoxy resins. It’s a “hard” shell, but actually quite brittle. They get damaged fairly easily, and you would never want to take them down a river. These hardshell are what probably 90%+ of the current market buys, but they are really only best suited for surfing. Flatwater enthusiasts are better off with inflatables for a variety of reasons. Check out the 1st video I posted for the all the benefits, one of the biggest of which is the durability of inflatables. We sell hard boards too, so we know both very well.

There are also roto-molded paddle boards, which is how a lot of sit on top kayaks are made. The problem here is that they are super heavy… upwards of 50-60 lbs, versus 25 lbs for an inflatable or epoxy/fiberglass paddle board. So only a very small percentage of the market opts for going the roto-molded route with paddle boards. You really regret that purchase the first time you have to carry your board anywhere, or even just have to get it on and off the car!

Hope this helps!

Daschu117 - Thanks for your interest, and this is a great question. The short answer is that inflatables are not ideal for the surf. Yes, you “can” ride them in the waves, but you are better off with a fiberglass/epoxy board for surfing because it really helps to have a hard edge for carving on the wave.

Now, the reality is that only about 5% or less of paddle boarders ever venture into the surf zone at all. In the US, the percent of people who surf on a regular surfboard is less than 1% of the population. So most people should really get what’s best for flatwater, and that’s why inflatable paddle boards are becoming more and more popular.

Hope this helps!

I bought my first one a couple years ago off Woot. We loved it. My son and I have a boat on the Barnegat Bay in NJ. We paddle with it both in the ocean and the bay. We had so much fun with it, I bought another one for Christmas. I’m a mom in my 50’s and short. My son is a slender surfer. We’ve both used it in the ocean on calm days, but mostly keep to the bay. We store it on the boat in the summer.

I like to take my dog with me when I take out my kayak. I’d really like to get a SUP. How well would this inflatable SUP hold up to a dog and his claws being on the board?

I have had an epoxy board for a few years now and love it. Problem is, when I go to visit my family in Vermont it wasn’t practical to bring along (6.5 hour drive). Last summer while there I was lamenting my lack of a board and told my mom that I thought I would buy an inflatable if I saw the Tower package on Woot again…either the next day or day after guess what appeared. So I put my money where my mouth was.

No regrets! It is easy to inflate with the pump, and partially deflated can be thrown into the back of my Prius. It handles fairly well, maybe a smidge more drag compared to my epoxy board, but not enough to bother me.

The deck has a softer feel to it than an epoxy board (not bending though!). This was a huge plus since my paddle boarding was limited this summer because of plantar fasciitis…standing on the epoxy hurt too much, but this deck was more comfortable.

A friend tried it and loved it too. She is talented enough to do yoga on her board and liked the feel of this better, especially doing the headstand!

How many air chambers are there with this board? One or multiple… I might have missed it somewhere but heard multiple chambers are better than one.

I have one of these from last year and just bought one of Tower’s longer isups too. They have one chamber, are super durable and have pretty much replaced my kayak. These take a little more effort than a kayak to paddle, but that’s half the fun. These are also half to weight of my full size old town kayaks.

As for bringing a dog, the rubber is thick, but I think Tower sells a little pad for the front of the boards for dogs.

I’m tempted to buy another set for friends.
