An affordable starter board option, our S-Class Starter Series uses “Fusion “construction. While it’s not the same double layer, hand glued construction Tower Paddle Boards is famous for over the founding decade of our existence (see our Tower Premium Series for these, and our X-Class Elite Series for 8" thick construction which is 240% more rigid that 6" thick iSUPs), we believe it’s time for Tower to introduce an even more economical board into the market as a “Starter board”. It’s also lighter construction, which is some consolation even if the durability and rigidity are not on par with traditional Tower double layer construction boards. While it’s more economical (and lighter), it’s not a low quality board, like the single layer iSUPs flooding the market.
Each board in the S-Class series has a Tower logo with a subscript “S” trailing the “r” in Tower. The “S” signifies it is part of the S-Class Starter Series, which is made with fusion construction.
