Description

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

The Tower Xplorer Inflatable SUP is made from extremely rugged materials like those you'd 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 even 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.

Review by: from Aberdeen, New jersy on 3/12/2020
I ordered the OPTION 2: GRAB BAG-Xplorer 14' iSUP Package (Needs Repair) at a dramatic discount from the regular price. It arrived with fewer and less serious defects than I expected considering the price I paid. There was a bit of minor abrasion on one edge which won't affect the function of the board. Also there was a small tear in the mat on top which should be easy to fix. It arrived without the advertised repair kit. I emailed the factory with a polite request for one. Within hours they responded that it was on its way and within two days the kit arrived in New Jersey from California. Very good service and very good value.

Incredible value!

Review by: from on 3/22/2017
I was lucky enough to snag this "heavily damaged" 14' Xplorer in the Grab Bag sale. As someone who has never repaired a board or an isup, I was hesitant, but I couldn't pass up the bargain. The board arrived fast, and there was one small hole for me to patch using the included patch kit materials. Super easy and it took all of 20 minutes, and that was with my small children hanging all over me the whole time. Hardly what I would consider heavily damaged! I took the board out the next day - myself and my two kids altogether, and we had a blast. Stable, fast, roomy for all three of us (My wife was out of town, otherwise she could have come along). I love the board, and I love the great deal I got! Don't hesitate to buy one of these, even a "heavily damaged" one!

FYI: I am able to pump up the board to the recommended PSI in about 6 minutes using the provided manual hand-pump. I had contemplated getting a motorized pump, but there's no need at all.
