Product Description

Great for beginner paddlers or avid paddlers needing a convenient solution. At 6" (15.2 cm) thick, the Adventurer Inflatable Paddle Board represents a giant leap forward in inflatable SUP rigidity. This board can float up to 350 lbs (160 kg) on the water and when fully inflated, there is absolutely no flex or sag like most other inflatable boards tend to do. This inflatable is basically the closest to a hard epoxy/fiberglass paddle board there is out there. It is also military-grade and nearly impossible to puncture, suitable for even the rough, rocky water conditions of whitewater. An inflatable SUP is not only a viable option, it may be a better option for anyone that doesn't live right by the water! Package includes hand pump & 3-piece adjustable paddle.
*Pump Disclaimer: Pressure gauge on pump may not register right away. Unless you are using a pump other than the one we have provided, you do not have to worry about over-inflating the board.
Repair Kit: Includes PVC patches. PVC glue must be sourced locally.

couldn't be more disappointed. Absolutely loved my two Tower Adventurer ISUP's for two and a half years. Used them about three times a month during the summer months on the Gulf of Mexico. Then the first one exploded in the back of my truck on the way to my boat 5/15 yesterday the other had a seam let go sitting on my boat not in use 6/25/2015. Coincident, I think not, especially since you can't even send them back for repair. They're made poorly with glued seams that last two to three years. Wish I would have thought to ask if they service what they sell. Every professional repair person I called said don't waste your time or money, they'll just open up somewhere else. Big waste of money, very poor product.

Couldn't be happier with it 27 Oct. 2012
By Lifehack G - Published on Amazon.com
I bought two of these on Woot. I was really nervous about the inflatable aspect but these boards are fantastic, I'd buy them again and recommend them to anyone. The best parts:

- The 6" thickness is a big deal. I went out with a friend who had an NRS 4-inch inflatable and it was much less stable and her feet were in the water a lot. My feet never got wet and I was high above the water. Her board cost almost twice what mine did and I wouldn't have traded mine for it, and NRS is a great company I really like and respect. I just think 6 inches is a LOT better than 4 once you try it.

- It's hard to believe they are inflatable once you see them blown up. I've taken out about 10 people and always had a great time with no issues, even in choppy water, even on midnight paddleboard excursions out in the wind. They are the real deal, I'd choose them over a fiberglass board for the weight/storage aspect

- You can just keep them inflated and put them on top of your car to take them back and forth (see below)

- I took mine out every day once I got them and just loved it. I was on pretty choppy water and I thought it was fun, took them across a lake on a 4-mile round trip in some chop and had a blast with my friend even though it took forever. The fiberglass boards I've used had more power in choppy water but that's simply due to the heavier weight, they stayed on course a bit better, but I'd still buy this over a fiberglass board

- The PRICE is great. Each board cost me exactly what it would cost to rent 9 times where I live. I took them out that many times in the first few weeks I got them. Many of my friends rented boards all summer and might have been better off just buying one of these

- It is a great core workout and you don't even notice how much exercise you're getting since it's so fun

-I'm hoping to take mine hiking and into some great, off-the-beaten path water next summer - a great advantage of inflatable boards!

- Storage is very easy during the winter and I love that

- The paddle is good and I like it. I don't see why you'd need a different one.

- The pump is apparently as good as it gets. I had hoped to upgrade it but when I went to a local watersports store they said this pump is a standard, high-quality SUP pump and due to the adapter it'd be hard to replace with a different one. I'd love to hear in the comments if anyone found differently because I'm pretty small and would be happy to pay more for an easier/faster pump of any kind that had a compatible adapter. I'd love for Tower to offer an upgraded pump, I'd buy it as I found pumping with this pump to be a workout in itself

- I loved having two. I got a great deal and know that isn't an option for everybody, but it was really fun to invite people to the lake by my house without them having to rent a board. For me, I was either going to get two or zero as I love paddleboarding but it's much more fun with another person

The cons/things to know: - none of these are bad enough to lose a star off this review, just things you should know/small nitpicking

- It doesn't come with ANY instructions or paperwork and you have to look everything up on their website in the FAQs. When you make a purchase like this you'd expect at least a one-pager with things like "inflate to 11 psi" and "the handle thing is only for emergencies" and "here's how to take care of this giant inflatable object so you don't destroy it" and thanks for buying, here's info about warranties, accessories, etc. Even the dumbest little things I buy online come with instructions so I don't know why $600 sports gear wouldn't.

- Know that uninflated they are still nearly 30 pounds with everything so it's something to consider if you, like me, are planning to take them hiking to interesting places. You'll want a bag. The only bag I could find that would fit a board, paddle, pump, life jacket was this and it's very huge and basic with no pockets. Northstar 1050 HD Tuff Cloth Diamond Ripstop Series Gear/Duffle Bag (18-Inch x 42-Inch). If anyone has found a better bag or backpack I'd love to hear about it in the comments. I'd buy a compatible backpack from Tower if they offered one.

- I'm a small girl and had a tough time inflating them to 11 psi and had to get help to do that each time so I finally got sick of inflating them and just kept them inflated until the end of the season. It's easy to put them on your car (as long as you have cross bars), get 2 styrofoam kayak/canoe blocks and two tie-down straps. Something similar to this: SportRack ABR525 Standard Block Island 12-Inch Kayak Kit

- Each time you roll them up you need to take the fin on and off. This means using a quarter to screw and unscrew a little bolt that attaches the fin. That bolt is tiny and very easy to lose! I went on their website and ordered a few extra screws and a spare fin to have on hand [...]

- Other accessories you might want - get a life jacket, no matter how awesome it is it's still inflatable and you never know. And with a lifejacket you can be more confident and go more places. If you get some caribeaners you can attach them to the d-rings on the boards and bring stuff with you on your board (I have a water bottle I can attach to the front d-ring that way). I got this little drybag for my phone/camera: Kwik Tek Dry Pak PDA GPS Pocket PC Case (5-Inch x 8-Inch) and this little cheap waterproof watch since I was going out by myself so much and wanted to be back in time for dinner Armitron Women's 256347BLK Easy to Read Instalite Black Nylon Velcro Strap Sport Watch

Overall it's one of the best purchases I've made online and a really great bang for the buck.

Not Well Constructed 19 Aug. 2012
By tylerdoo - Published on Amazon.com

Review edited below: glued seal simply came apart about 5 inches in two separate places.

I purchased this product for eventual use in the Virgin Islands, but took it out to the lake to test out when it arrived. It worked great! Even before taking it out we blew it up to 11 psi and put a foot of each end on a chair, suspending the vast majority of the board in the air. I am 6'4" 225 lbs. and I actually stood in the middle of the board and it fully supported me! An extremely small amount of bowing in the middle. Seems very sturdy and worked great! I have never been on a hard paddle board but needed something that was more transportable and this will work nicely. The board worked great in the water and when we were done deflating it was a snap. The pumping up was not too hard --- a little resistance should be expected to get the board as hard as it is. So far am very satisfied.

Edit 1: the original pump failed after 6 or 7 times blowing it up. I contacted tower, the mfg, and they were very very helpful. The pump I originally received was different than the current pump this package now comes with. Tower shipped me the new pump that same day at no charge to me. I haven't used it yet but it seems to be more sturdily built than the original one that broke. Such great customer service is hard to to find these days and I would definitely recommend tower
paddle boards to anyone!!!!

Edit 2: 2-17-15
I purchased this board on 8-6-12. We had taken it down to St. Thomas where it was only used a few weeks out of the year for the previous two years. The board had worked well up to this point, which is why we were so surprised after only owning the board for about two and a half years, a 5 inch gap simply opened on the end where the glued seam had failed and all the air rushed out. No one was even using the board. It was just sitting on the beach and the seal just burst. We only had it inflated to about 10 psi which is well below what this board is supposed to handle. At this point, we are very disappointed with this purchase. The board was great while it lasted, but for something that costs this much to only last for about 2.5 years without heavy use is a real disappointment.

Edit 3: 3-2-15
When the first seam opened, I contacted Tower customer service and was told to use the glue and patches. As instructed, I glued the seam and let it dry the required amount of time. Once the seal was dry I blew the board up to about three PSI in order to see if there were any leaks. The seal seemed to hold so I left the air in overnight to make sure before we were going to take it back out on the water. The next morning the paddleboard had completely deflated, but it wasn't because of the first seal. A second 5 to 6 inch gap had opened on the opposite end of the paddleboard. At this point it seems that it just took about 2 1/2 years time and very light use for the glue to wear out. While the board was great while it lasted, the lack of durability was very disappointing. I'm just glad no one was way out on the water when the seals failed and the board deflated. I will post a picture of the second failed seam.

Makes it easy to for anyone to get into SUP 6 Aug. 2012
By Will Waverly - Published on Amazon.com

I'm giving this 5 stars based on the quality of the board itself. More on the other equipment in a minute. It took me about 5-10 minutes to pump it up. The gauge was a little erratic, but it looked to be about 11psi. The Tower Adventure is every bit as rigid as they describe! Take a look at Tower's website for pictures. The 6 inch thickness gives you enough floatation and rigidity for riders of just about any size. I'm mid-size, and I can get another small or mid size person on the front while I paddle if I want. Tracking is fair; the fin setup is probably the best they can do on an inflatable, but it's not going to be the same as a hard board. Stability is good, but maybe only 85% as stable as a hard board. It's not too bad a trade-off when you consider it's a board that can roll up and fit into a large duffel bag. I was wondering if this was going to be a 'toy' - something that superficially resembled a paddle board but wasn't made to do the things a paddle board can do. I'm happy to say it's nothing like that at all. It's a real paddle board.

I'd describe the bundled pump and paddle as decent backups or something that may last a season while you think about upgrading. If that isn't what you had in mind, consider just getting the board itself and getting your own paddle (Werner and Sawyer make high quality 3-piece paddles for transportability) and a more durable pump (K-pump or NRS make them).

Pros: It's good for generally flat water, beginners, or as a board for someone of any ability to toss in the trunk on the way to the beach or to take on a plane trip. Better quality than anything else I could find at this price point.
Cons: The bundled equipment.
Neither a pro or a con, but remember the trade-off: it's not a hard board, though it's about 85% of the way there. You'll see the differences in wind and chop. For a real challenge, try upwind in choppy conditions!

Worked Great 30 Aug. 2012
By C - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this for portability and space saving. Used a Hard SUP several times over the summer. Decided to take a chance since the price was more reasonable for me. I took it out to a local lake for the maiden voyage. Easy to inflate and set up by myself. Try as I may, I couldn't get the pressure gage to read over 5psi (as much as I'd like to think that the gage is broken, I think it is just one sign that I need to do a LOT more paddling for arm strength :) ). When inflated, the board is quite stiff. Easy to carry by myself (5'4", 135). My feet never got wet. The board is pretty stable (although slightly less than a hard board). I was able to maneuver around with ease. There was a 10 knot wind. Found paddling into the wind to be a bit challenging, wouldn't recommend getting too far from where you want to take out if it's very windy. In the calmer waters the board worked great. Pretty speedy. Didn't fall off and stayed dry the entire time. Pulled it out of the water, deflated it and did a quick roll up in about 5 minutes. Got home and hosed it off. One of the bottom "permanent" fins was a little bent when I unpacked the unit. Remember someone else making the same comment. While the unit dries in the sun, I am trying to manipulate the fin to be a bit straighter. It's a hard sort of shiny rubber material, hopefully the heat will do the trick. The main fin is attached with a small bolt. The hole wasn't perfectly lined up so it took my helpful hubby pushing on the fin while I put the bolt in place and tightened it. Afraid that if I remove that fin I will need another pair of hands to put it back on. It won't roll up as tight with the fin on, so I will have to think about this. All in all, this board works well for this beginner/intermediate. Paddle is adjustable for height and fairly light weight. Did have to empty some water out of the shaft when I took it apart. The bicycle style pump is easy to use. Took about 6 minutes for me to inflate the board. Overall I would recommend this board for lakes or rivers/high streams without sharp rocks. Seems to provide a pretty good core workout. Fun way to excercise.

UPDATE

I have now owned this board for two seasons. Brought it out for this summer's paddling and still works great. I haven't experienced any leaks, just a few blemishes (cosmetic) from occasionally running over branches in the river. The pump and board are holding up fine. At the end of last season, the paddle adhesive gave out. I can still put the paddle together but had to use duct tape to keep the bottom section in place. Of all of the components of this trio, the paddle is the week link. Still works well enough for me and I haven't replaced it yet. I have also tried to figure out why the inflation valve is on the end of the board opposite the fin.When rolling up the board, unless you want to remove the fin every time, you must start at the front end and roll back toward the fin.A lot of air gets trapped and gives you a big bundle rolled up. I have found that if the board is COMPLETELY dry, you can attach your vacuum hose and suck out most of the air. This gives you a pretty small roll without having to remove the fin, and it still fits nicely in the back of the car. I am still very happy with this purchase and have enjoyed using this board.

BodySong Wellness LLC - FANTASTIC! 21 Oct. 2014

As a wellness business owner, I must rely on convenience, stability, and durability for my equipment. I have used my tower paddleboard for personal use as well as paddleboard exercises and yoga. My clients have been very comfortable balancing on it even for first-time users. Further, I have been able to travel with my son on the board comfortably. It's great to be able to carry it in its backpack, to inflate it on site, and be on the water within a few minutes. The customer service has been fantastic, as they have offered me D rings so that I can attach small personal articles to the top of the board as well. This has been a great asset to my work and leisure activities with my family, clients, and friends. "Like" BodySong Wellness LLC on FACEBOOK To see more images. Love this Board!
