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.

The Xplorer arrived a bit dirty but after a morning on the lake and some household clearner it fit in with our other Tower board— great boards at great prices.

Was very excited to get my first board by doing this sale. The board arrived in worse condition than the description but the company did a great job at making sure it was resolved. Buy with confidence!

Wonderful deal!

My buddy and I took advantage of the recent grab bag deal. I can attest that both SUPs are in excellent shape and they look AWESOME! Any blemishes/repairs (if at all) are so minor they're practically invisible. The included pumps and paddles appear brand new, although both our repair kits were missing glue.
This SUP is indeed huge and takes a lot of air! Beware, once pressure builds it builds FAST! I used an air compressor to inflate it firm to the touch, then it took just 20-25 strokes with the hand pump to reach 10psi. The 14ft Xplorer dwarfs my 12.5ft iRace, yet is still remarkably easy to handle.
My Xplorer has been hanging next to the iRace from the garage ceiling for over a month now. Both boards are rock solid and look so nice together my wife doesn?t even complain about the clutter, ha!
Thank you TOWER for extending the grab bag offers to your existing customers! We are anxiously awaiting Spring to get these monster SUPs on the lake!

Great product. Like new!

Customer Service on Return Not so Good

I have no issues with the speed at which my order was shipped. However upon receiving my order I decided that the board was too big and called the customer service department. I spoke with Sarah and was given permission to return my purchase. I shipped it out promptly, paying $89.00 to do so. It has been in Tower's possession for 9 days and I still have not gotten an answer after 2 phone calls this week about my refund. This is poor service at best. Please contact me to let me know where we stand on this issue. Guy Greene
