The Tower Paddle Boards Adventurer 2 comes with a lightweight, removable fiberglass fin – perfect for storing or transporting the board. The Adventurer 2 stands at 10 feet 4 inches, making it one of the longer boards on the market.

Max Load (lbs)
This iSUP board is extremely easy to inflate with the use of a hand pump. Once inflated, it becomes one of the most rigid boards on the market. Tower uses the same materials found in Zodiac boats and extreme river rafts, making it nearly indestructible too! The military grade PVC material and drop stitch construction mean you never have to worry about the board getting gouged or scratched on any surface. The 6″ thickness is also one of the most robust on the market. The extra thickness allows riders to have a more stable ride, higher above the water, letting you avoid wet or slippery feet if you desire.
Once you inflate the board, all you need to do is press the center fin into the bottom of the board, lengthen your collapsible paddle to your desired height, and enjoy!
The padded top make for a softer, more comfortable ride on the feet, and the extra width makes it super stable for bumpy or smooth conditions. The length adds stability and agility, and the board should glide through the water quickly.
The front Bungee in this new model is also great for storing your shoes, shirt, water bottle, or hat while out and about.
When deflated and rolled for transport, the board is just a mere 33″ wide, with a 1′ diameter, making it perfect for closet or boat storage, as well as easy transportation in the car, on a bike, or even in a suitcase.
This board is great for all levels and ages. The stability and length, as well as the soft top, make it great for beginners and kids, as well as seasoned stand up paddlers looking for extra comfort. The added length also makes the board a great performer in a variety of conditions. Flat lakes, rivers, and bays will be enjoyable on this board, but it will also be able to attack choppier salt water too.
Watch the video below that shows a consumer review of the board and it in action.
It should be noted, that the weight of the board is 25 lbs. Although it is perfect for any age in the water, you may have to assist a younger child in carrying and setting up the board. A small price to pay for the stability, comfort, and safety they’ll experience when they get the board out on the water.
