In a world of 35+ pound behemoth SUPS that barely fit in a garage, this sub-27
lb SUP is a featherweight that transports easily and stores more like a surfboard
than an SUP. It achieves this by going a little wider (the primary determinant
of stability), a lot thicker, and counter-intuitively almost a couple feet shorter.
Volume and floatation is added (using more foam, which is the light part) while
weight is reduced by minimizing the overall surface area (minimizing the epoxy
resin and glassed surface area, the heavy part). Whats more its

Perhaps as classically beautiful as it is functional, the Tower Fit 910
is a perfect meeting of form, function, and good looks. A classic, triple stringer

The finishing touches on the board were given just as much thought. Unlike
many SUPs, where the traction pad is an afterthought, the sharp looking Tower
branded traction pad was designed as an accessory to enhance the beauty of the

in intended use, and an automatic vent is built into the board.
The Tower Fit 910 - a great board thats easy on the eyes,
easy to carry, easy to store, and quite simply easy to fall in love with.
