Introducing the Tower Mermaid Inflatable SUP
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.
A Giant Leap forward in Inflatable SUP Design
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 the Adventurer 2 is the Best Selling & Best Rated iSUP Worldwide (and now we've improved it!)
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.
A Viable EPS/Epoxy Board Alternative - We're not kidding!
Traditionally, inflatable SUPs were only a consideration for traveling - store one in the cuddy 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.
Benefits of an Inflatable SUP over an EPS/Epoxy board
Warning - Beware of cheap inflatable SUP packages
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.
