If you’re in the market for a good iSUP for surfing, as well as other recreational paddling, then look no further than the Tower Adventurer 2. This board is new for 2015 and a bit of an upgrade from the popular Tower Adventurer 9’10” inflatable SUP.
Though the price of this board is a bit higher than the regular Tower Adventurer, it is a great choice if you want something that performs well in waves. It is a very high quality inflatable stand up paddle board that is designed to last you for several years worth of paddling.
Features of the Tower Adventurer 2 iSUP
Are you seriously considering buying this inflatable paddle board? Well, you probably don’t need me to tell you how great it is, but I will still point out some of it’s best features to help you make a buying decision.
- weight limit of 350 pounds
- comes in a package with a pump, carry strap and paddle
- grooved deck pad for your comfort
- 2+1 fin configuration with a removable center fin
- D ring on the front and the back
- six-inch thickness for stability
- cargo net
- extra front and back handles for easily carrying the board
As you can see, this board has a lot going for it, which makes it no surprise that it’s constantly on the top of the best sellers list at Tower Paddleboards.
One of the things that I really like about this board (like the regular Tower Adventurer) is that the six-inches of thickness means that you sit higher up in the water than most iSUPs. The board feels more rigid that most inflatables and it means that being higher up keeps your feet dry. It also means better stability in the water than most other iSUPs.
The weight limit on this board is also one of the highest in this class. Normally you have to go for a longer board or a hard board in order to get a weight limit like this. That means that this is a great iSUP for heavier people as well as people who want to go out with friends, a spouse, kids or a dog. It also means that you can easily support a tackle box and other fishing gear if you’re using your iSUP for fishing.
But what really makes the Tower Adventurer 2 one of the best inflatable stand up paddle boards for the money is the design of the board’s nose. It gives you greater control of the board in waves, which makes this a good iSUP for surfing.
Of course, you don’t have to use the Tower Adventurer 2 for surfing. In fact, it is a great all-rounder board as it performs well in all types of water from flat water to white water to the surf. In all honesty, this is one of the best iSUPs for beginners on the market right now.
It’s also worth mentioning that the paddle you get with this board is a little nicer (and a few ounces lighter) than the one you get with the regular Tower Adventurer.
Bottom line: this is a great iSUP for beginners as well as experienced paddlers who are looking for a iSUP that feels similar to a rigid SUP and performs well in all different types of water environments.
