12'6" iRace SUP

Review by: from Illinois on 7/9/2020
This (red) iRace SUP is my second board from Tower; my first purchase was the (blue) Adventurer 2. I love both my boards and appreciate the differences between them! [I paddle on a mostly calm lake w/ some boat wake]. The iRace definitely cuts through the water and glides better than the Adventurer 2. I feel more efficient and use less energy on the iRace. Both boards are stable with the iRace having a bit more side to side wobble compared to the Adventurer 2. However, I can still do all the same footwork, maneuvers, and pivot turns just as well. In fact, I think it improves my balance because it encourages better center-line foot positioning. Having that extra length on the board is so enjoyable when stepping back and forth. I've now paddled on the original Adventurer (rental), the Adventurer 2, and the iRace. They have all been fantastic boards! Tower customer service has also been wonderful!

A great board! An even better value!

This is a really nice board to paddle. Great size, keeps a straight line and adequately maneuverable. And it looks super bitchin' in red!

Gotta dock it a star for not having any bungees for cargo. I get it's a "racing" board but still, don't racers carry at least a water bottle and small dry bag?

My other board is an iRocker, which I love. They're both super high quality. But the tip goes to Tower. $429 is what you'd pay for a (decent) used board or even a (cruddy) new one.

Buy this board.

Exploding Paddle Boards!!

Review by: from Austin Texas on 7/16/2020
I bought two black irace paddle boards a few years back. Last year one exploded on me as I was preparing to launch it. You graciously replaced it with a new red irace. I decided to buy another just in case that happened again and because it was nice with friends in town to have two spares. This week a second paddle board exploded. So out of the three I've purchased I'm down to just two paddle boards again. I actually love your product. I have four friends who bought 7 of them from you this last month with my encouragement (John May, Calvin Hagood, Diana Dierks, Colton Rector), but it's a big bummer having them explode. I assume that design flaw has been corrected. Other than that I and my goldendoodles love them!

I wanted a longer board for longer trips but was apprehensive about the 30" width. Not to worry! The iRace was as stable as my 10' board that is 32" wide. I also ran it over with my SUV by accident...and it didn't pop. What else could you want???

iRace & Adventurer 2 Review

Review by: from Tampa FL on 4/24/2020
As first time SUPers we are so happy with our decision to purchase Tower's iRace and Adventurer 2 as our first paddle boards. As advertised these boards are sturdy, easy to store away and inflate/deflate like a dream. Navigating products across the SUP land is intimidating but with Tower you get exactly what you pay for. We only ordered the boards and they arrived timely. As first timers our main concern was purchasing a sturdy board that would support us with no sag. We only inflated the boards to the minimum PSI of 10 and damn these boards are stiff. Get an electric pump. Thank you Tower for the first time experience! We are so happy!

Life changing, I need a career change!

I'm sitting in the water as I type, The Joker playing on my speaker, charcoal grill aroma and waves breaking on the rocks at Lake Mead just outside my hometown of Las Vegas. Because of you I've found the water. The quality is assuring and allows me to just enjoy and trust the equipment.

Limited Edition Red

Review by: from Ocala, Fl on 2/24/2019
This is my 2nd Tower inflatable board. Wanted something a bit longer for touring and absolutely love my new “red sled”. I live in Florida and am fortunate that we can paddle year round , this board is ideal for the fresh water springs, I have gotten stopped every time I take it out . It’s a real beauty!

Tower of Power!

Review by: from Myrtle Beach, SC on 6/28/2020
I purchased Tower’s original ten foot ISUP for my wife about four years ago. From day one, she has loved it! I am not a small guy at 6’3 240 lbs. This board holds me easily, tracks extremely well, and glides right through the choppy water of the SC coastal inlets where we use it. I fill this board to 14 psi with Tower’s hand pump. It is a bit of a workout on those last few pounds of air, but that’s the whole point right? The paddle included is better than most you can buy at your local marine/outdoor store. The skeg (fin) is durable and holds the board true. Trust me, my wife has run this thing aground multiple times and it’s still as snug and straight as the day it was delivered. Because of Tower’s outstanding reputation and build quality, I just purchased the 14’ racing ISUP for myself. I cannot wait to baptize this thing in our salty South Carolina waters later this week. I have been a Tower fan for years and stand behind their products. I was not paid to write this review. Honestly, their products are just that good. Take the chance, buy one of their board packages (with paddle and pump), and you can thank them later, just like I am doing right now.
