The Board: On the Inside

High Society is known for their precise production process; every step involved in putting a SUP together is carefully executed and then reviewed by multiple team members to ensure a flawless finished product. The Wolf has a drop stitch core offering a lightweight yet durable base, the core is then wrapped in military grade PVC and the rails are reinforced. The Wolf is near indestructible; although we don’t recommend it, you can run it over with a truck and the seams won’t even stir. The tri-fin system features a removable center fin with fin screw and two fixed side fins. The side fins are springy and perk up upon inflation, but will lay flat when packed away. The top deck is covered in black diamond grooved EVA foam with a grey accent stripe towards the nose. The foam pad provides traction and comfort under your feet, knees or hands and provides a soft landing spot for beginners. A soft carrying handle in the center of the deck helps you transport your fully inflated board. Up at the nose of the board we see a bungee storage zone attached with four multi-purpose D-rings; these come in handy when you want to bring along small accessories. Moving back to the tail of the Wolf there is the premium inflation valve and leash connect point, which is also a D-ring you can use for towing or tethering your board.

The Whole Package

If you are familiar with iSUPs and their accessories you probably know that it is difficult to find an accessory package with everything you need to hit the water. So, let me tell you that High Society has one of the heftiest and best accessory packages you can find with an iSUP. Your board and accessories all come packed in the ventilated High Society backpack. The unique design features mesh sides that allow your board to breathe, comfortable padded shoulder straps and grab handles. You also receive a dual-action pump, travel paddle, safety leash and repair kit.

Setup and Performance

Setting up the Wolf takes less time than it does to whip up a batch of margaritas for the after-ride party. With the board lying on a flat surface, attach the inflation hose and pump; the board should be at 15 PSI in about 15 minutes. Flip the board over and attach the center fin; use the fin for better tracking but remove it to avoid damage in shallow waters. On the water the Wolf is stable and rigid, the board feels solid under your feet you forget that it is inflatable. Turning is slow but smooth just like the tracking, the board glides lightly atop the water, though don’t expect to win any class races on the Wolf. If you’re after an easy to ride board that is ready for adventure when you are; the Wolf is the travel companion you didn’t know you needed.

The Highs and the Lows

If you’re after an easy to use entry level iSUP with high performance features then the Wolf has what you need. This board is pretty standard and has a little bit of everything we want to see on board an iSUP, the only complaint would be the lack of extra grab handles. For beginners, grab handles at the nose and tail of the board make for less awkward transitions in and out of the water when you’re just getting into the swing of things.
