This 9’10” medium paddle board comes at a bit higher price than we usually recommend, but it’s an excellent premium quality board. This one has fewer accessories, but the quality compensates for that.
Tower sup characteristics
Let’s have a look at its dimensions and the package itself:
- length: 9 feet 10 inches
- thickens: 6 inches
- width: 32 inches
- weight: 21lbs
- paddle: 3 piece adjustable
- pump: a high-pressure pump
- extra accessories: hand hold strap, roll-up carrying strap
Dimensions make this board a little shorter, but it still is a medium-sized SUP board suitable for various activities. Its wideness of 32 inches will also make it feel really stable even with extra passengers. That’s especially important for beginners that are just starting out.
Speaking of importance, it’s worth mentioning that no one likes to fall down on hard board and get an injury, be it experts or beginners. That’s why the board has a nice non-slip soft top deck that will reduce the possibility of accidents or injuries. Perfect for children, teens, and young adults. Though obviously not limited only to them.
Material quality is excellent, thus making the board very durable – even to unintentional scratching. For example, you could take your dog along for the ride, and the material will not suffer from your pets’ toenails.
It’s not the fastest of the boards, though due to its design but it will not leave you behind a group of paddlers unless you’re trying to race. So it’s perfect for recreational paddlers.
This board has a three fin design. The central fin is detachable and is quite large. Because of that, it will help with maneuverability and steering not only children but for beginners as well. If you do want another fin, you can easily replace it with an aftermarket one.
It has a small rocker in front, and it’s enough to handle chop and waves really well. So you’ll not have any problems handling rougher waters in open waters. The width will also help to keep you nicely balanced.
The pump is decant, and it will take around five minutes of intense pumping to get it to the recommended PSI level. With more relaxed pumping, it takes a bit more, but it’s still quite fast. A suggested upgrade would be an electric pump if you have problems with pumping.
The paddle itself is adjustable, consists of 3 fiberglass pieces, and comes with an ergonomic handle. You might want to swap it later on with a solid single piece paddle. But for this, you’ll need to get a feel for yourself – if it’s sturdy enough or you want a more solid feel. Also, another reason would be the handle. Maybe you prefer the traditional T shaped one.
As previously mentioned, then this board package isn’t stacked with lots of extra accessories. But the ones that are included are a handhold strap and a roll-up carrying strap. If you don’t need to carry it around a lot, then it’s not a problem.
A premium quality inflatable stand up paddle board that will serve well both for young teens and adults.
