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

Blackfin Model X 2021 by iRocker

Over the past few years, we have really seen an evolution in the world of inflatable paddle boards. what used to be a Plan B for someone who had a hardboard or some simple toy to use on the flattest of waters has really become a force to be reckoned with.

iRocker Blackfin X 2021

The 2020 model of the Blackfin paddleboards brought in a whole mess of new features, as was common with many other manufacturers in the 2019-2020 design years. As such, the 2021 model doesn’t appear to have many new features compared to the 2020 model but is really focused on the writer experience itself. read more

Blackfin Model V 2021 by iRocker

If you’re familiar with the iRocker brand, you may know that the blackfin lineup is their premium version of many of the boards they normally offer— comparable to the relationship between Lexus and Toyota. But when it comes to the iRocker Blackfin V is really in a class of its own.

The most comparable iRocker model to this would be the sport, though it comes in at a full foot and a half shorter than the model V Anna little bit thinner. Still, these are both boards in the same general shape and for the same general purpose: speed. But what we see in the Model V is something that’s much more geared towards a serious paddleboarder that wants serious performance. 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.

GILI 10’6 AIR

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.

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.

Blackfin Model V 2020 by iRocker

There is a huge number of add-ons that you can purchase to really get the most out of your SUP! We won’t get into too deep into this since we could be here all day, but these include anchors, fishing setups and even electric air pumps. Unique to the Blackfin boards are the option to attach a fishing rack or sand spear, making this an even more versatile board.  As with the rest of the iRocker philosophy, they are all the accessories are high-quality yet super affordable.

Blackfin Model X 2020 by iRocker

Ford has Lincoln, Toyota has Lexus — so why shouldn’t iRocker have Blackfin? A step up from the standard iSUPs on the iRocker line, Blackfin boards have traditionally been the choice for the paddleboarder who’s looking for that extra something in their experience.

Blackfin Model XL 2020 by iRocker

The Model XL comes equipped with 20 D-rings, which about 3 times more than you’d expect. While you can use these for even more equipment, they have a variety of purposes such as towing and docking or attachment points for the included ankle leash and additional equipment such as the available kayak conversion kit.
