All of our inflatable
stand up paddle boards are extremely durable. It's
military grade inflatable, not backyard pool inflatable
grade, and this surprises most people. These boards
are made in the same factories that make rugged
river rafts and high-speed Zodiac style boats. The
external skin is extremely durable, and on Tower
boards there is an internal natural gray layer and
then an additional outer white layer (for great
looks, but also for added durability).
While it is of course possible to puncture any
inflatable product with well placed nail or the
like, these boards are intended to be used in rocky
conditions and perform well in those conditions.
We thrown inflated boards off the top of a building
to see how high we could get it to bounce without
damage. We've also run over inflated boards with
an 8000 lb truck without damaging them. We don't
really recommend you do these things to your personal
board, but the take away is that they are extremely
On the rigidity of the board, this is where our
6" Adventurer boards really shines. We can
span it between two chairs 9 feet apart and a 200
lb man can jump up in the middle of the board and
the thing barely flexes. Try this with most 4"
inflatable boards from our competitors and their
boards will taco all the way to the floor. The physics
involved here are that if you double the thickness
of a beam, the rigidity increase 8 times (or 800%).
We've increased the thickness by 1/2, so our 6"
board is roughly 4 times as rigid as most inflatable
SUP boards on the market. All of our iSUPs are at least 6" thick so that any rider can feel comfortable on them.
