Tower Inflatable SUP Comparison Chart

Tower ISUP comparison chart

Tower has a few different inflatable SUP boards. The Adventurer and the Adventurer 2 are shorter and ideal for recreational fun on lakes, rivers, or on ocean surf.

The larger Xplorer adn the iRace are for anyone who is interested in touring, exploring and who wants a board that is super stable and can hold a lot of weight.

The iRace in particular is able to pick up some good speed.

The Tower ISUP’s are extremely solid.  These boards can withstand a lot of abuse with very little wear and tear.

I own the Adventurer and although it isn’t my board of choice for paddling myself, I keep it around for when I am bringing out friends who have never stand-up paddled before or for someone who is a bit nervous to try.

It is also great for kids and dogs as it is so super stable.  I haven’t tried the Xplorer yet… it is a mammoth of a board at 8″ thick.  It is designed for touring and for anyone who needs a board that can hold one heck of a lot of weight.

I don’t imagine that it is super fast or easy to maneuver quickly because of that extra thickness but I am sure you would feel extremely secure on it, which may be a huge plus for a lot of people.

Truly the best thing about these boards however besides the fact that they are so rock solid is their price point.  Tower offers a great way for people to get out on the water and try out stand-up paddling without investing too much cash.

  1. Do you have any info on the Tower Adventurer 2? Can’t find anything on your web site. Thanks.

    • Hi Janet, I haven’t had a chance to review it yet but I’ve only heard good things. It’s an upgraded version of the Adventurer. I really like that they’ve added the bungee cords up front and the more tapered design will definitely help it to perform better. I’ve heard it’s super stable and durable just like the Adventurer. For only $50 more I think it looks like the much better ISUP. I’ve had several people tell me they’ve bought it and no one’s been unhappy with it.

  2. Thanks for your feedback. I think I will proceed with the purchase!

  3. Any words/review on the Tower iRace iSUP? Thanks.

    • I haven’t tried the iRace yet unfortunately but I’ve only heard good things. I don’t believe it is the fastest board out there but knowing Tower it will be super durable. It is a nice design that should provide a good balance between stability and performance. I hope to review it soon but if you end up getting it I’d love to hear your thoughts!
