Xplorer 14' iSUP Board Only- 14'

27 review(s)

An "On the go" SUP racing/touring board that's also lightening fast. At 14' long and 8" thick, this is a revolutionary inflatable design. Originally designed for the jet-setting SUP-racing crowd, the Tower Xplorer inflatable SUP package is also ideal for anyone that just wants a crazy fast flat-water touring board.

2-Year Warranty on iSUPs

NOTE: Paddle and pump sold separately.


Note: This board would retail in a store for $1500.

Description


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.

Bought this board for myself, I weigh 360lbs and it's a little wobbly but it's also my first time using one. Still didn't fall in!

Xplorer for the win

After researching for an inflatable paddle board we could store in our truck camper, Tower was the obvious choice. Rigged yet still easily carried, the 14’ Xplorer fit the bill and did not disappoint!

Finally a board I can enjoy!

I'm 6'2" and a long-waisted 224lbs. I'm also a paddle board beginner. Because I'm an experienced kayaker, I thought SUP would be easy. However, with a lot of weight up high, previous boards I've owned that were supposed to be OK left me feeling like I was balancing on a log. After a few minutes I'd be exhausted because of the constant balance challenges. The 14' Explorer has changed all that. Finally, I'm able to balance, relax and begin to enjoy SUP. I first tried it this past week in Florida and it was pure fun. It tracked very well and friends who tried it noticed how well it glides compared to their own shorter hard boards. I was paddling in light breezes in relatively calm water. It was very stable. It has great primary and secondary stability. Once inflated it felt rock solid. I also purchased the Tower electric pump which worked like a champ. It was about 15 minutes to full inflation and about 5 minutes to full deflation. I also opted for the carbon/kevlar 3-piece paddle which made paddling a pleasure. So glad I've finally got a board that fits me. Finally, the Tower staff were great to work with.

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.

Very stable in wavy water

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!

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:)

Made well but....

Not as stable as I thought it would be in the ocean (very small waves). It is too light and the 8" height makes it easy to blow around and very difficult (near impossible) to get back on if you slip off. Best to stick to calm water and no wind blowing.

Very Impressed, highly recommend this board

I have a niche application for this board, primarily using it with 3 dogs (at the same time) plus camping gear. My glass boards could not handle the load. I bought this board expecting that the buoyancy would more than meet my needs but I accepted the possibility that I might end up paddling a board that felt like a barge. I was completely wrong. This board is very easy to paddle. It is much faster than the glass board, with the same load. I was also surprised by how easy this board is to turn. On the attention to detail side of things, it is incredibly well balance making it easy to carry and/or load on a car rack when fully inflated. I expected the deck mat to be a simple non-skid surface but it has a surprising amount of cushion, making it very comfortable to stand on. I bought the electric pump and absolutely love that. I am going to sell my glass board, because at this point I cant think of anything that board does better than this, for how I want to use a paddle board.

Great value and build quality

I'm 350 pounds on a light day. This board is rock solid and stable on this lake and handles well in 1'-2' chop. Took a bit getting used to how high off the water it is, and have to be close to shore to climb back up. Soft to the touch on the deck pad. Next step is to strap a cooler to it for longer adventures. Not too big either, my wife had this strapped to roof rack just as fast as her 9 footer.

A little concerned about the bubble on the bottom of the board below fill hole, however a tower representative said that this is normal.

I'm 6'-4", 280lb, and have had trouble finding big enough rental boards to handle me when I'm on vacation. Not anymore. I'll be using this when travellng, and at home. Took it to the lake this weekend, and it was very stable. This monster takes a little effort to turn, but tracks very well due to its length. Expect to make new friends. I was approached by several people, one person was interested in buyng one, and took a picture of the brand & website script on the board. Maybe Tower will send me some swag for marketing...(?). Anyways, so far, so good with the purchase. Fast, and free shipping is a definite plus. Good customer service. I had a few questions answered online before buying, and that was helpful. It would be good if they had a rollng travel duffle that was big enough to handle it, and that hopefully stays under the airline dimension limits. I'm researching, and shopping for that magic combo. Can't comment on durability yet, but it seems very sturdy.

So much fun!

Best isup ever, but it would be perfect if it had a couple more d-rings and bungee storage like the adventure, you need the storage as in most places you have to have a life vest and most of us would love a place for a bottle of water

I really likely new 14' Touring SUP. I found it very stable and easy to paddle. I had no problem getting back on when I went into the water. My only con is that it does not have a cargo net pre-installed. I knew it didn't have the net before I bought it so its really not a complaint.

Almost 2 years, it is great.

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.

Great product - frustrating shipping process

I recently bought my second Tower iSUP. The first time I made the purchase through Amazon. We enjoyed it so much that second. This time though I made the purchase of my second board directly from Towers site. Even though AE (or Armed Forces Europe) was a shipping location choice they later explained that they could not ship to an FPO AE address (presumably because they only use UPS as USPS and FedEx both deliver without issue) and would only ship to an intermediate location leaving me to pay USPS shipping from there to the FPO address. $100 extra out of my pocket not appreciated.

So, if you are looking for an inflatable SUP I cant recommend the Tower board enough the product considered alone is five-stars. However, if you are military/Gov stationed overseas dont buy from Towers site but jump over to Amazon. The weight and dimensions of the packages are well within the limits.

smooth ride

I own both the adventurer and the Xplorer. I do yoga on the board and did my initial learning on the adventurer. I bought the Xplorer because needed another board better for racing, to eventually have my 110 pound dog join me in paddling and to have someone paddle with me while I train. I took the Xplorer and the Adventurer boards on the choppy waters of Lake Lanier. The Xplorer has very little wake and is very quiet on the water even when the water is rough. I do have to stand a little forward to keep the nose flat because the board is so long. The Xplorer board is a lot faster than the adventurer, but I do not feel I give up any stability with it. The only negative is that the three piece paddle provided with the board package is too short for anyone 5 feet 8 inches and taller, due to the depth of the board being 8 inches (the maximum length of this paddle is even shorter than the one piece uncut paddle provided with the adventurer package which is only a 6 inch depth).

My husband got this board for Christmas so that we more easier take a board with us on vacation cause it's difficult at a hotel unless you are on the first floor. We'll winter has been tough and we started out the spring on a vacation in Florida. The inflatable was great to transport down in the car. We didn't have the instructions with us and called Tower and they quickly called and emailed them to my phone. Worked great. And when I finished we threw it on top of the car and drove back to the resort. We were on the second floor and surprisingly enough did have much trouble getting it up the exterior stairs to our room. Couldnt have done that even with a shorter12 ft epoxy board.

It look like the board is going to meet our needs. Definitely a good purchase. Tower staff really helpfully
