It was designed to be a fun and social board, one where you can throw a friend up on the front and even ride tandem.

Description Technical Specs

The Tower Social 11'5" - a fun, social SUP that will have the whole family spending more time on the water.

At a volume of 237 liters and a width of 31, this 11'5" board is truly tandem friendly. It will glide smoothly carrying up to 275 lbs, so throw a friend up front and enjoy the water together. While its a beefy stand up paddle board in terms of stability and floatation, at only 27 lbs with pad and fins its actually 5-10 lbs lighter than many of the other large SUPs on the market.

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 board. A 2+1 Futures fin box configuration was added to allow for flexibility in intended use. A maintenance free air vent and a single longboard SUP center fin are included with every board.

The Tower Social is a beautiful blend of technology and aesthetic design. This stylishly futuristic board features an an outer layer of 6 oz fiberglass and an inner layer of 10 oz high-tech carbon cross link material (it's Kevlar, actually like in bulletproof vests), which adds shear strength and breathtaking design. These boards were designed in California in Tower's San Diego SUP factory, yet due to our manufacturer direct distribution model they are $1000 less expensive than comparable quality boards sold thru retail by other brands.

Benefits of Carbon Cross Link

More rigid - Compared to traditional epoxy and fiberglass construction, carbon cross link boards are quite a bit more rigid.

Stylish design - The look of these boards really blows people away. The carbon cross link mesh looks like nothing else on the market and gives the board a clean, stylish, and futuristic design.

Great board April 27, 2015
Review by: Craig from Los Angeles  
I was notified my board would arrive ahead of schedule, it was delivered on the new delivery date as expected. I opened the box and noticed it was packaged properly to avoid any damage.  I made sure to fully inspect the board before sending the driver on his way. The manufacturing quality of my board looks excellent, I could not find anything wrong after close inspection.  I am a beginner SUPer, age 60, +200lbs with some minor shoulder and balance issues.  I wanted a large board that would be stable without being to heavy or costly.  I found I could maneuver this board in/out of the house and truck with ease.  I have tried it on the water only a few times so far and with the single fin config but plan to add the other two side fins to see how that changes the tracking.  I liked the stability of the board and plan to use it a lot more this summer.

Lives up to its name! April 24, 2015
Review by: Lauralee McIntyre from San Diego, Ca, United States  
DISCLAIMER: I am the Director of Communications at Tower.

This board lives up to it's name, it's incredible how stable it is and the amount of weight it supports!

I have been able to paddle this board with myself, my brother, and my niece all at the same time and it glided effortlessly. I've also gone on it with a couple of girlfriends without a problem.

When I use the board alone and it's certainly very fast and stable and not too much to handle. But I wouldn't put up with storing and transporting such a large board at 5'10" and 130 lbs if I was just riding alone for the most part.

For tandem rides and larger riders in all types of body of water, it's definitely the best board out there!
