All-rounder Paddle Boards

iRocker Nautical 10’6” 2021

iRocker set out to create a board that would be inaccessible to more people because of the lower price point, but in the process, released an excellent board at an incredible price (for what you get) and even made some friends along the way. In fact, the 2020 Nautical made it on our list for the best value paddleboard on the market of that year.

With their 2021 model, we wanted to see if they were looking to start and cut any corners or make any other changes.


Just by doing a quick look at the specs of this board, you would guess that it’s pretty much your standard all-around bored. And you know what, you just about right! A 10-foot 6-inch board at 32 inches wide is the exact measurement we would picture if you were to ask for a standard board of this type. However, it does have a few features that make it stand out a bit. read more

iRocker 10’6” Cruiser 2021

However, we don’t envy them because it’s getting more and more difficult to find ways to make inflatable paddle boards better. There are only so many features that you can add until you’ve reached the limit.

The 2021 iRocker Cruiser has always been one of our top recommendations for people who wants to get the most of their time on the water. It’s stable, strong, and able to stand up to even some of the most demanding hardboards.

But what if you’re looking to upgrade from a previous model or are looking to get your feet wet for the first time in the paddleboard game? Is it worth it to spend your hard-earned money on the 2021 iRocker Cruiser? That’s exactly what we’re going to find out for you today in this review of that iSUP! read more

iRocker Sport 11′ X 31″ 2021

The 2021 iRocker Sport is designed to be a force to be reckoned with on the water. It’s thin, it’s sleek, and has a number of features designed to keep you at your peak. We love these kinds of boards because when we first started using inflatable paddle boards years ago, these were nothing more than glorified toys. But as the years go by and companies like iRocker really took their design seriously, it’s incredible to see what you can do with them!

As we’re talking about the 2021 iRocker Sport, we’re going to be focusing on a simple question: should you buy it? We’re going to be looking from the viewpoint of someone who may have never owned a paddleboard before, maybe looking to upgrade to get a more performance-driven model, or even someone who may have an older model of the Sport who is looking to purchase the most modern version. read more

iRocker All-Around 10” 2021

In general, iRocker is a master of all-around boards. Even their boards that have more specialized use are really useful in most if not all water conditions and types of activities. Of course, the 2021 iRocker 10’All Around is specifically made for just about any type of activity.

Essentially, this is the spitting image of the other iRockerAll Around but for a smaller paddleboarder. Even if you look at the marketing on their website, you can see that iRocker designed this with women and older children in mind. read more

iRocker All-Around 11’ 2021

If you know anything about who we are, you know that we get our hands on a lot of paddleboards. And in all that time, we have never been disappointed by what this brand has to offer. Not only do they have good quality construction and materials, but the thought that goes into their products is something that’s very rare to find in any industry, let alone this one.

Of course, though, in this article, we’ll be specifically talking about the 2021 iRocker 11’All Around inflatable paddleboard. This has been one of our favorites throughout the history of our publication but who exactly would benefit the most from this board and is the 2021 model worth it? These are two questions that will help to answer for you to make the best decision in your first I saw purchase or if you’re looking to upgrade. read more

Blackfin Model XL 2021 by iRocker

If you read our other reviews, you know that we’re a big fan of anything iRocker produces. This is because this company takes great pride in the product that they produce as well as maintains a strong relationship with the people that end up using them.

2020 was a huge year for iRocker in how they upgraded just about all their models and even added a few. If you’re unaware, Blackfin is iRockers premium line of paddleboards, taking just about everything we love about their standard products and dialing it up to 11. read more

iRocker SPORT 11′ Reviews 2020

The iRocker Sport is certainly faster than its peers but still is able to used for as a general purpose board as well. Keep in mind that it’s not the most stable board out there and is not recommended for beginners until they’ve gained their footing on a more standard board. Perhaps the ideal user for this board would be someone who has some experience under their belt and wants to go to the next level or someone who wants to eventually transition into a true racing iSUP.

ISLE Scout SUP Boards Review 2020

With this year’s Isle Scout, we have some mixed feelings. On the one hand, the 2019 was one of our favorite iSUPs for yoga — especially when you factor in the price. The 2020 model isn’t as ideal of a yoga board, but it is much more useful as an all-around iSUP.

ISLE Pioneer Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board Reviews 2020

The process of upgrading and improving their lineup, ISLE decided to switch things up on us. Just as 10’6 is considered the standard length, 32” is considered the standard width. Previous Pioneer models came in at a slim 31” inches while this year’s model comes in at a hefty 34”. It looks like we’re not the only ones that added a few inches during the first half of 2020!

While not impossible, it can be difficult to find a decent iSUP for under $500. But if we’ve said it once, we said it a thousand times: paddleboarding shouldn’t be a sport just for people with money. We firmly believe that even if you need to save up a little bit, buying a quality iSUP shouldn’t send you to the poor house.

GILI 10’6 Komodo

Despite being a great iSUP brand, GILI doesn’t get as much love as it deserves. Along with a few other brands such as iRocker and THURSO, they lie in that sweet spot of mid-tier boards that give the consumer a bang for their buck.

iRocker 10’6” CRUISER

Whenever we review iRocker boards, we have to be careful not to be biased since they are easily one of the best iSUPS on the market, especially when you factor in price. As a touring iSUP, the Cruiser has just about everything we would want to see and more, with the 2020 version being the best yet.

iRocker All-Around 11’

iRocker’s new construction this year combines the best of both worlds by using a stronger drop stitch core while still having 3 layers of military grade PVC on the outside to protect the board. This creates a strong board that can withstand the elements while still finding a way to keep the weight down. This isn’t the lightest 11’ iSUP on the market but probably the strongest, pound for pound.

2020 iRocker All Around 10

The fin setup here is one of our favorites in the industry. A 3-fin thruster setup with all 3 fins removeable is a rarity to be sure. Being able to remove all 3 fins makes life a lot easier, especially when it comes to setting up and packing the board away or even stacking multiple boards.

Bote HD Aero

While you’d normally expect to see an EVA foam pad on an iSUP deck, here you have a BVA foam pad which Bote says is better for getting rid of any water that finds itself on the deck. Whether or not that actually true, we’re not sure, though it is super comfy.

Bote Flood Aero

Bote’s Flood Aero comes in 1 of 4 design packages. Native Floral has strong Hawaiian vibe with a faux wood top with flowers on the nose. Full Trax Lime is exactly what is says it is — stripes along the deck with lime green accents. Native Serape takes inspiration from Southern Western native American color schemes along the nose and a striped deck. The last option is called Full Trax Navy which is exactly like the Lime except the accents are in — you guessed it — navy blue
