Description Technical Specs

Introducing the 14' Tower Xplorer

Includes a 14' by 32" by 8" inflatable SUP, a high-end Tower branded diamond grooved deck pad, a standard longboard fin box with a removable center fin, a hand hold strap, a roll-up carrying strap, a towing ring on the nose, and a leash attachment ring on the tail.

A New Frontier in Inflatable SUPs

It will shock you how fast the 14' Tower Xplorer inflatable paddle board is. At 8" thick, it will also shock you how rigid it is. At the time of introduction, not only is there no other 14' iSUP on the market. Nor is there any other 8" thick iSUPs on the market. The Xplorer represents and entirely new class of paddle board, and everyone who tries it falls in love.

Traditional hard board unlimited racing class SUPs are the fastest boards on the market. At 14' or longer, and with many over 7.5 inches thick, they also present a massive storage and transportation problem. For speed and glide, the longer the better, but it's a bitter tradeoff. You need an oversized room or garage to store them, and you've got to crate them for shipping (at a cost of $1000s per shipment). This is largely why more manageable 12'6" length hard boards have become the standard racing class size, but really they're still monsters to transport.

However, when you go with an inflatable, the length is largely irrelevant for storage and transportation as you just roll them up and go. We figured the longer the better, and we were right on the money. Once we tested the boards, we were blown away at the speed. It's the fastest board in our entire line-up... and if fits in a duffel bag when rolled up.

Amazing Rigidity

Be weary of newer boards made with the fused process. While they may be lighter, they lose rigidity and durability in this newer construction process and are much lower quality boards overall.

The Tower Xplorer 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 Xplorer 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. The Tower Xplorer is an unparalleled 8" thick. You'll be amazed. We can literally put the front tip of the 14' Tower Xplorer 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.

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 you can stand up paddle board in the farthest corners of the earth. With the combination of speed and rigidity of the Tower Xplorer, an inflatable SUP is hard to beat on flatwater with anything less than a full-fledged racing hard board... and don't be surprised if it outperforms a few of those.

Benefits of an Inflatable SUP over an EPS/Epoxy board

  • Easier to store - When rolled up, it's 1 foot in diameter and 37" 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, and can even be strapped onto a bicycle or motorcycle. You can take it on a plane.

  • 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.

Paddle Board Rowing December 22, 2017
Review by: Jim W. from SunCityCenter, FL United States  
Rather than stand-up paddling I will be sit down rowing using the Oarboard and oars. The Tower 14' is rock solid and unbelievably fast with oar power. The 8" board thickness does not flex or sag at all under my weight(220).

Very stable in wavy water September 29, 2017
Review by: Alex from Washington, DC United States  
I have the Adventurer 2 10'4" and really like iit. The 14 foot Xplorer is a different animal. Much more stable and it tracks quite a bit better.  I think I'll be taking out the Xplorer a lot more. Hoping to use it to take my two young boys out. Thanks for a great iSUP!

Amazing board September 29, 2017
Review by: Chris C from Fair Oaks, CA United States  
Can't say enough positive things about this board. It's stable, smooth, fast - a pure delight. I always leave it inflated and throw it on the car. Works great. Arrived with a few nicks on the side decals and foot top foot pad, but nothing that effects the experience. Highly recommended.

Love my new board May 13, 2017
Review by: Cori Crawford from Las vegas, NV United States  
Thank you so much for this gorgeous board! I had a smaller 10.8' foam paddleboard before but because of my weight I had a hard time balancing on it. I was nervous that an inflatable board wouldn't be as sturdy as a hard board but after reading some of the reviews and given that the weight limit is so high, I decided to go ahead and order the Xplorer 14' inflatable board. I take it out to the lake at least 2-3x/week and get so many compliments on it! Even though I have a truck, I love that I can just roll the board up and throw it in the back seat rather than tying it down in the truck bed. I am still learning to paddle but I can't say enough about how sturdy this board is! I am considering getting one for my boyfriend now also! Thanks Tower:)

Almost 2 years, it is great. March 30, 2016
Review by: Bernard from San Diego  
I bought this inflatable 14'almost two years ago.  I wanted something we could take when we travel and that could easily accommodate two adults.  

I can sit in the front and my wife can stand in the rear and paddle.  She has much better balance.  Our kids can use it in the ocean, there has been four teenagers playing on it.  No problem holding them all.

I just recently bought the black one, that too is a great addition, and works well for me.  

I am a big fan of Tower, and I love the boards so much that I own a three of them.
