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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
