The Diamond Air Touring is a touring specific board as you may have already guessed. Designed with a touring shape this long and stable board is confidence inspiring for paddlers of all levels. The 11’6” iSUP is 31” wide and has plenty of room for trying out SUP yoga or fitness, or for sitting or lying down and enjoying the day on the water at your own pace. This board designed specifically with ladies in mind moves effortlessly across the water, so you can work less paddling and work harder standing tall and enjoying your ride.
With added rigidity and stiffness the Diamond Air won’t let you down; this SUP will carry you across the water like the queen you are. Easy to set up, simply unroll your Diamond Air Touring from its backpack, and inflate it to its optimal PSI, click that single center fin in place and you’re ready for a day out on the lake, this touring model is best left in calm waters as it is too bulky to handle small waves or choppy conditions. When you’re ready to pack up for the day the Diamond Air is a lightweight board and weighs only 19 lbs so if you’ve ever carried a kid, you won’t have any trouble lifting this board in and out of the car.

Design, Construction and Features
The Diamond Air Touring is built from premium Drop Stitch Light technology that is lightweight, durable and affordable. The drop stitch core of the board is wrapped in a strong layer of Tarpaulin, two layers of PVC rail are then added all around for an extra rigidity and finally it is wrapped in beautiful graphics and topped with a soft diamond grooved foam deck pad.
In the center of the board is a carrying handle for easily transporting your board out of the water to your next stop. Towing eyelets are integrated at the nose and tail of the board for towing and attaching a safety leash. Lastly, the best feature of all, a four-point bungee storage zone is located at the nose of the board for packing on your gear for a night away, or a place to hold your paddle while you take advantage of the opportunity to have a little float alone. The single removable fin requires no tools to install, just click it in and out when you need it. Finally the entire package is wrapped in the same beautiful graphics as the Diamond Air.
The Diamond Air Touring comes with the standard accessory pack from Fanatic which includes a Fanatic Power Pump HP2 for fast and easy inflation and a premium travel backpack. The premium backpack is an upgrade from the standard bag; it has more room for packing small accessories and comfortable padded shoulder and hip straps as well as wheels for when you’re feeling lazy.
Taking it for a Spin
The Diamond Air Touring is the perfect partner to take on your adventures. It glides effortlessly so you have more time to enjoy the scenery and more energy for when you reach your destination. The straight line tracking is fantastic and the board feels solid and stable under your feet, it’s hard to believe it is an inflatable board and not a traditional hard board. When it is time to pack up and go, the board deflates almost as quickly as it inflates. The fin snaps out of place and can be packed into the premium travel backpack.
