iRocker Nautical Inflatable Paddle Board Review: Sturdy, Ready for Travel and Affordably Priced

In addition, this paddleboard package is ideal for travel. Simply deflate your board, remove the fins, roll it up and stick it in its matching backpack (included).

Note: Easily take your inflatable SUP to the beach, camping or on vacation. No need for a roof rack or expensive shipping fees. Now, you can go paddleboarding virtually anywhere without having to rent equipment. =)

More Advantages of the iRocker Inflatable SUP:

Nautical Paddle Board Features: Deck Pad, D-Rings, Carry Straps, Bungee CordsIn addition to the easy travel benefits, inflatable SUPs have several advantages over hard boards.

For example, the blow up version weighs much less than foam or fiberglass paddleboards. In fact, the Nautical only weighs 20 pounds – making it easier to carry around.

In addition, the deck features several D-rings plus bungee cargo straps. Therefore, you can secure cargo to your board (such as a dry bag, cooler, shoes, water bottle, etc..)

The D rings are also strategically placed so that you can attach a kayak seat. As a result, you can turn your SUP into a sit-on-top kayak if you get tired of standing. Just add a cheap kayak paddle.

Bluefin Cruise Hybrid Inflatable SUP Kayak with Detachable SeatNote: If you like the idea of a hybrid kayak/SUP, also check out the Bluefin Cruise. Both models have very similar design and accessories, however, the Bluefin already comes with a kayak conversion kit.

Alternatively, you can use the Nautical for doing paddleboard yoga. The comfortable, grippy EVA deck pad runs almost the entire length of the SUP, and it provides a no-slip surface for doing a variety of exercises and poses.

What Does the iRocker Stand Up Paddleboard Package Include?

The iRocker Nautical SUP Package includes everything you need to get out on the water or go on vacation with your paddle board. (And for the low price of this bundle, you’re getting a great deal compared to standard hardboard.)

iRocker Nautical SUP Package with Paddle, Pump, Backpack, Fins, Repair Kit, Leash

  • Inflatable SUP
    Extra strong and durable construction, so the board lasts a long time (even if you bang it into docks, logs or boulders).

  • Dual Action Air Pump
    This hand pump can fill your paddle board faster than a single action pump. However, it doesn’t inflate as fast as a triple action pump. And, it requires more work than an electric air pump.

  • Adjustable Fiberglass Paddle
    This upgraded paddle weighs significantly less than standard aluminum paddles. Therefore, it requires less effort to paddle. In addition, it conveniently floats!

  • 3 Removable Fins
    Having removable fins is important if you want to travel or pack your gear in the backpack. They make it easier to roll up your deflated board, however, you can easily lose them if you don’t keep them in the backpack.

  • Coiled Leash
    This leash will prevent your paddleboard from getting away from you if you go overboard in rough surf. Plus, it will not get tangled around your legs like a straight leash can.

  • Heavy-Duty Carrying BackpackNautical SUP Backpack with Padded Straps, Sternum & Waist Bands, Carry Handle
    This extra large SUP pack comes with comfortable padded straps along with supportive sternum and waist bands. In addition, the outside cinch straps keep your keep from moving around, which also makes your load easier to carry.

    Alternatively, you can carry the bag by its top handle. (By the way, all of the accessories fit in the backpack along with the inflatable SUP.)

  • Repair Kit

Review of the Nautical iRocker Paddle Board:

The Youtube video below reviews the Nautical inflatable paddleboard, so you can see how it looks, inflates, rides, etc.. In addition, they test out and compare the iRocker vs the Nixy SUP.

In short, both boards have a very similar size, shape and construction. However, the Nixy costs significantly more due to the premium accessories that come with it and the structural side rails. Take a look:


ROC Inflatable SUP - Best Budget-Friendly Inflatable Paddle Board PackageNote: ROC makes another budget-priced inflatable SUP. In fact, you may be able to save about $100 on the ROC SUP vs the Nautical (depending on sales and availability).

Both models make good all-around touring paddleboards perfect for travel. However, the ROC weighs about 3 lbs less, is 6 inches shorter in length and comes in several different colors.
