Paddling lovers need a paddle board that is sturdy while being versatile and easy to maneuver, which is why the ISLE Airtech 10′ is a top selling product. This inflatable board feels as stable as a solid model but maintains the convenience of a lightweight and portable board. It easily adapts to many water activities and can be the best choice for both beginner and advanced surfers looking for comfort, safety, and ease of use. The reasonable price tag also contributes to the convenience of this SUP board that manages to offer a great price-quality ratio.

Design and construction

The board measures 10′ in length, 31” in width, and it is 6” thick, with a weight of 17.5 pounds, so you can say that it is an average sized unit. It is made of a military grade material that makes the board so solid that you can throw it, run it over with your car, or smash it against rocks and it will not show the slightest sign of damage. It doesn’t even break when rolled into the carry bag and this is due to the innovative construction method. Instead of hand gluing the top and bottom PVC layers into the double drop-stitch, the manufacturer used a proprietary machine-fused process that involves coating the drop-stitch with a special seal then adding a machine-laminated PVC layer. This results in a stronger and sturdier board that is also 8 pounds lighter than the previous models. The material allows you to inflate the board to a maximum of 15 PSI in less than 6 minutes.


The paddle included is a 3-piece model so you can adjust its length according to your height. Take note that the paddle is made of aluminum and not carbon fiber so it is heavier than other paddles so it might not float as much as other paddles do. Avoid leaving it on top of the board in water or it might sink.

Volume and capacity

This model is shorter than the 12′ one designed by the same manufacturer so it has a volume lower than 259 liters. Still, it can carry users of up to 200 pounds in weight, so the stability and durability are quite impressive. Let’s not forget that it’s a smaller and more compact version designed for one person or even for children.

Best use

You can use this paddle board for a variety of water activities although it is best suitable for flat water, small waves and river runs rather than surfing or speed paddling. This is due to the all-round shape that offers it stability rather than speed.

Accessories

Without a doubt, this is an excellent board that meets every requirement in terms of convenience. Not only it is extremely versatile, but it is also very easy to use. The pump that comes with the board has it ready for use in a blast and every accessory is easy to attach. This SUP contains every accessory you will need for a complete and comfortable paddling experience. For easy and fast setup, there is a pump that comes with the board and has a pressure gauge that guarantees you will inflate it to the right PSI so the board will not be too soft or too hard. Aside from the two side fins that are permanently attached to the board, you will receive an extra fin that can be attached when needed so you can customize the board as you best like.

Warranty

A great plus of this SUP board is the 2-year warranty that covers any manufacturing or shipment defect so you can enjoy the quality of this product with peace of mind. Moreover, some online retailers offer a 30-day money back warranty so you can return the product if you are not satisfied with it, although we guarantee that it will not be the case.
