Made with PVC and drop stitch technology, this inflatable board is one of the strongest and most durable on the market at an astonishingly low price because we sell direct to consumer.
Tower's Mermaid iSUP is a beautiful turquoise and white version of our popular Adventurer 2. The board has the exact same 10'4 x 32" dimensions and even the same bungee net upfront for securing goods and utilities while paddling. The only difference is its standout color!
NOTE: This is just the board and fin. You will need a pump to inflate. SUP paddles sold separately, as well. Or buy this board in a complete iSUP package.

Includes a 10'4" by 32" by 6" inflatable SUP, a high-end Tower
branded diamond grooved deck pad, a 2+1 fin configuration
with a removable center fin, a hand hold strap, a roll-up carrying strap, a
towing ring on the nose, a cargo net, an extra handle in the front and back, and a leash attachment ring on the tail.
Frankly, virtually all 4" inflatable SUPs (which is pretty much all inflatable
SUPs on the market) leave a lot to be desired. That's putting it nicely. They
sag in the middle and ride low in the water so you end up standing in a puddle
of cold water, which is miserable. The sagging and undulating ride also slows
you down. The 6" thick, military grade Tower Mermaid Inflatable SUP
is dramatically more rigid, plus it floats higher in the water so no wet feet.
But this is only one of many advances that set the Tower Mermaid Inflatable
SUP apart from the competition.
The Predecessor to one ofthe best selling & best rated iSUP worldwide (and now its improved!)
The Tower Mermaid 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 Tower Mermaid 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" Mermaid iSUP 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.
Traditionally, inflatable SUPs were only a consideration for traveling - store
one in the cubby 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 Tower Mermaid,
an inflatable SUP is now also a viable EPS/Epoxy board alternative for anyone
who isn't a die-hard surfer.
Be weary of newer boards made with the fused process. While they may be lighter, they lose rigidity and durability in this newer construction process and are much lower quality boards overall.
The Tower Mermaid Inflatable SUP is amazingly priced because we sell it
direct. It's a high-end, well designed, and well considered inflatable SUP,
but at a direct to market price. Just because it is priced about the same, please
don't confuse it with many of the cheap inflatable SUP packages on the market,
which are characterized by many issues including:
