TOWER Classic

PREMIUM Series Paddle Boards

The ORIGINAL invention by Tower in 2011 that disrupted the entire SUP industry, the world’s first 6” thick inflatable paddle boards. We increased iSUP thickness by 50%, which increased rigidity by 325%. Suddenly, you could enjoy the convenience and portability of an inflatable SUP with the stability and speed of a hard board. The SUP industry went from less than 1% inflatable paddle boards to over 90% today as every brand eventually copied our innovation.

We’re still one of the few brands who uses hand glued double layer construction, the gold standard of quality, which is critical when you want maximum rigidity and durability in a 6” inflatable SUP.

ULTIMATE VERSATILITY
Tower Inflatable SUPs offer a superior experience compared to hard paddle boards - they're more fun, safe, durable, convenient, easy to store and transport, and economical. Our 6" thick inflatable paddle boards have become the market leader for these reasons.
BEAUTY IN DESIGN
Tower’s design approach prioritizes function and simplicity, creating a visual that is elegant, timeless, and impactful. Tower customers are a discerning, stylish group.
DOUBLE LAYERED CONSTRUCTION
The Premium Series uses a double layered, hand glued construction that competitors are unwilling to do since it requires more time and expense to produce. No corners cut here. You get ultimate durability and a 2 year warranty.
PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS

Tower iSUPs have received accolades all over the internet for well over a decade. The luxury magazine Robb Report titled one of our Premium Series iSUPs as the #1 SUP worldwide.

Double Layer, Hand Glued Quality

6” thick | 325% more rigid
This is the gold standard technique in SUP production and a proven technology with over 10 years of market presence. These boards last the longest in the industry, by far. Labor intensive and not inexpensive, if you want the best, this is what you get. These have a deck thickness of 2.2mm, versus 1.4mm in fusion construction, and 0.7mm in single layer. A few pounds heavier, but that gets you loads of added rigidity and durability.

Inflatable Paddle Board FAQ

How do I inflate an inflatable SUP board?

iSUP packages come with a high-pressure hand pump with a special H3 valve and a PSI gauge. It takes about 5-7 minutes to fully inflate your iSUP to the 10-12 PSI we recommend. They are safe to inflate up to about 20 PSI as a safety precaution so you don’t overinflate, but 10-12 PSI is all that’s necessary. Optionally, you can buy an electric pump where you set the desired inflation PSI level, hit start and it does the rest.

What PSI do I inflate my inflatable SUP to?
We recommend 10-12 PSI for optimal performance. Our iSUPs are safe to inflate up to about 20 PSI as a safety precaution so you don’t overinflate, but 10-12 PSI is all that’s necessary on Tower boards as they are by design made with quality construction that is very rigid even at lower PSI inflation levels.
How do I install the center fin on my iSUP?
It’s very easy and secure. All current Tower iSUPs use what’s called a hook & pin center fin, where you hook the front base of the fin over a catch in the fin box, slide it back as far as you can by tapping the fin with your hand which will align the rear fin base catch over the hole in the fin box which you simply insert the tethered pin fin thru. Just reverse the steps for fin removal.
Can I use an electric pump with my iSUP?

Yes, you can use a special high-pressure electric pump suitable for inflatable paddle boards. It will have the required H3 valve. You simply set the desired PSI, hit start, and it will auto-inflate the board. Note, most “inflatable” product pumps won’t cut it as they are not specialized high-pressure pumps, so you will need to buy a pump specifically for high-pressure inflatable SUPs. Additionally, while many people will try to use an air compressor jimmy rigged with an H3 valve, it is extremely easy to overinflate your iSUP this way and blow apart the seams. You board will be ruined. Obviously, use of any compressors voids your warranty.

How do I deflate an iSUP?
When you open the valve cap on the rear deck of your iSUP, you will see a yellow valve stem button. You deflate your iSUP by depressing that valve stem button and twisting it clockwise to lock it in the down position. This valve stem acts as a toggle between a one-way valve when it’s in the up position and a two-way valve when it’s in the down position. Use the valve stem up position when inflating your board so you can inflate and then remove the pump without the air rushing out. Use the valve stem down position when deflating your board. Air will rush out vigorously, and you roll the board from the other end to push air out as you roll it up for storage.
How durable is my iSUP?
Inflatable paddle boards are made of military grade PVC similar to what you find on commercial river rafts. You can run them up on the rocks just fine without damaging them. In fact, one of the key benefits of inflatable SUPs over hardboards is that iSUPs are nearly indestructible. We don’t recommend you do this, but we’ve run over Tower iSUPS with a car while they are inflated and they don’t miss a beat. They are also extremely durable when deflated and rolled up so you don’t really need a protective bag at all.
How long does my inflatable SUP hold air?
We keep our fleet of inflatable SUP boards for our demos inflated for months at a time and they never really seem to lose air. Even though most people think of inflating and deflating their inflatable SUP every time they go out, what a lot of people end up doing is just keeping it inflated. The beauty of these boards is really that they are nearly indestructible (when compared to an EPS/Epoxy boards that are prone to getting nicked up). The ability to deflate them, roll them up, and transport them in a tight space is often times only an occasional thing and sometimes an afterthought on these inflatable boards.
What iSUP accessories do you recommend?

Our most popular accessory is an electric pump as not everyone enjoys the pre-workout that inflating your paddle board represents. Once people get into the paddle boarding regularly, a carbon fiber paddle is a nice upgrade over the 3-piece fiberglass travel paddles that are included in our iSUP packages. iSUP backpacks are always a handy accessory if you travel a lot. And lastly, if you paddle in shallow water like rivers frequently, a 6” deep river fin is a nice alternative to have over the standard 9” SUP fin.

Extended Product Information

Introducing the Yachtsman by Tower, a Premium Inflatable SUP

The Yachtsman by Tower is a beautiful inflatable paddle board made with a design eye towards the boating world. In the early days of Tower, we were a regular at fine boat shows all over the world. We learned that boaters loved our inflatable paddle boards, but they had very discriminating tastes when it came to design. This guided our design-centric focus at Tower and our Yachtsman inflatable paddle board was designed just for boaters.

Amazing Rigidity

The Yachtsman by Tower Inflatable SUP is made from extremely rugged materials like those you would find on the highly regarded Zodiac boats and extreme river rafts. The amazing rigidity in the Yachtsman 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.

You'll be amazed. We can literally put the front tip of the 10'4" x 6" Yachtsman inflatable paddle board 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. Do this with most 4" inflatable SUPs and they will taco almost to the floor. Even 3/4" plywood flooring would probably break over this almost 10' span.

A Viable EPS/Epoxy Board Alternative

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 rigidity of the Yachtsman paddle board, an inflatable SUP is now also a viable EPS/Epoxy board alternative for anyone who isn't a die-hard surfer. And it still enjoys all the storage and transportation advantages because it's an inflatable paddle board.

Benefits of an Inflatable SUP over an EPS/Epoxy board

- Easier to store - When rolled up, it's 1 foot in diameter and 33" 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, can be checked on a plane, and can even be strapped onto a bicycle or motorcycle.

- 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.

LOVE this board!

We decided to purchase this board after trying our cousins. Best purchase! The board is so stable and feels like a hard board even though it’s SUP. It just glides in the water and is stable!

Back on the water

I purchased a Tower Adventure 1 board 10 years ago and had many wonderful paddles. When that board ran it's course I knew I wanted to replace it with another Tower board. Tower has incredible customer service and their boards are great quality. My new yachtsman board had some unexpected upgrades that I really appreciate. The handle on my old board had hardened, making it dig into my hand when carrying it. The new board has extra padding on the handle - very appreciated. It seems like the new board inflates more quickly than my old board, getting me on the water faster. The paddle also seems to be a higher quality. Plus, the yachtsman is so much more stylish than my Adventure 1. Tower just keeps making better and better products.

Fun board
Fun Board

Just purchased the board only option and did a 10 mile river trip. I have been paddleboarding for 5 years. This tower is a fairly small and light. Great for fairly calm water, and people that arn't oversized. It has an elevated pointy tip so it's good for turning, maybe too good at times. Without the third fin it requires switching hands every paddle or two. Its a fun fast board and stable enough. For larger folks, fisherman, or those who take their dogs, a larger board would be a more stable option. I enjoyed my first ten miles, but since I normally take the dog, or a fishing pole, I think I'll use this one less than my other board. I would recommend for many, but not for all.

Not bad...but not great either

Board is a decent board, but I don't love how they pretend this is a $1000+ board that they are 'discounting' to $499. Paddle is pretty standard for $350-400 Amazon type board. I don't have a problem with the board, just with how they are trying to make this sound like a high-end board when it's clearly an intro level board.
