Tower Adventurer 2 10′ Inflatable SUP Review
Tower have made a name for themselves in the inflatable stand up paddle board market. They are a trusted brand with a lot of the American market share for inflatable paddle boards. One of their most popular models is the Adventurer 2 10′, a great choice for anyone looking for an all-purpose board.
Tower paddle boards are known for providing incredible value for money. They’re very reasonably priced but have the high quality you would expect from much more expensive models. It wouldn’t be inaccurate to say that the Adventure 2 has a hand in that as well. It is packed with features typically seen in much more expensive paddle boards. You get top notch build quality and the lightness that an inflatable SUP should offer.
Tower Paddle Boards Adventurer 2 Features
The Adventurer 2 is a 10-foot paddle board that weighs a very light and portable 25 pounds. It has a width of 32 inches and a thickness of 6 inches. The 6 inches is a recommended thickness for iSUPs, as these tend to be the more stable ones out there.
Build and Construction
The Adventurer 2 uses a high quality construction made from ultra-tough, military-grade PVC material that makes it robust yet extremely light. The construction is so durable that the Adventurer 2 is able to withstand abuse from common encounters with rocks and sticks. To prove a point with the durability of this product, it is shown being driven over by a large SUV. Obviously it was able to survive that.
As mentioned earlier, the Adventurer 2 has a 6-inch thickness, which we find is the perfect spot for inflatable paddle boards. It causes the board to higher up from the surface of the water, so it won’t easily dip into it. The thickness also allows it to be faster. The thickness makes this a very rigid board, which helps in better tracking performance.
One of the major reasons why you would want to choose an inflatable paddle board is the superior portability they offer over traditional hard shell models. If you’re looking for a portable 10-foot paddle board, give a strong consideration to the Adventurer 2. It weighs only 25 pounds so it’s easy to carry around by the average adult.
When fully deflated, it can easily be put away into a backpack. The ease of transport of the Adventurer 2 is also quite good. It can easily be transported in small cars. In fact, even if you’re on a motorcycle you won’t have much trouble handling the Adventurer 2, while it’s fully deflated of course. This portability means that you don’t have to worry about carrying your paddle board. Just choose a destination and the Adventurer 2 won’t prove to be any hassle for you to carry around.
The Adventurer 2 comes with everything you’ll need to get it into the water and paddling. It comes with an adjustable paddle, a removable fin and a high-pressure pump. There’s also a repair kit included. One major exclusion from the purchase is a backpack. We would expect a portable paddle board to come with its own backpack. The backpack doesn’t have to be anything fancy, but it would provide great utility in carrying the board.
Tower Paddle Boards have a winner with the Adventurer 2. It ticks all the right boxes when it comes to inflatable stand up paddle boards. It’s light, very well made and has good performance in water. The accessory package isn’t extensive but at least you get everything needed for the Adventurer 2 to be usable in water.
If you’re looking for a high quality inflatable paddle board that won’t break the bank, definitely check out the Adventurer 2.
