More Great Features of the
Isle Inflatable SUP:

In addition, this SUP works well for beginners and transporting pets. The stiff structure and wide shape make it feel extra stable underfoot, even while paddling or performing yoga poses.

Plus, the top deck has a textured foam pad that prevents you from slipping and falling off your board. Not to mention, it feels comfortable on bare feet.

On top of that, the multiple grab handles make the Pioneer SUP easy to carry. (Plus it only weighs 24 lbs.) And the dual bungee strap systems allow you to secure plenty of gear while you paddle.

Note: The Pioneer has a shorter length than many other SUPs (10’6″), so kids can easily maneuver it through the water. In addition, the board it can hold up to 285 pounds. Therefore, you can add a pet or a cooler on board without a problem.

What Comes in the Isle Pioneer Inflatable SUP Package?

    SUP Paddle Holder Secures Paddle to Side of Board with Velcro Straps

  • 10’6″ Paddleboard
    The Isle Pioneer has an extra tough, durable construction. Plus, it inflates to a higher PSI, so it feels extra firm. In fact, some people may mistake it for a hard board. This SUP also has a bonus feature: a paddle holder.

  • High Pressure Air Pump
    This basic manual hand pump is easy to use, however, it takes about 10 minutes to inflate your SUP. Some people choose to leave their boards inflated or partially inflated to avoid the hassle of pumping every time they take the board. Alternatively, you can invest in an electric air pump, which only takes 5-7 minutes for inflation.

  • 3-Piece Adjustable Travel Paddle
    This lighter-weight carbon paddle is an upgraded accessory that actually costs $165 when purchased separately. It conveniently comes apart into 3 segments for easy travel, plus you can adjust the length so you can avoid straining your back.

    ISLE Pioneer SUP Accessories: High Pressure Air Pump, 3-Piece Adjustable Paddle, Coiled Leash, Removable Fin

  • Removable Tracking Fin
    As I discuss below, this easy snap-in fin has advantages for storage, travel and paddling. In addition, the 2 outer fins provide extra control (and some other SUPs only come with 1 fin).

  • Heavy Duty Travel Backpack
    This extra large pack can hold your rolled up SUP plus all accessories, which makes travel and storage conveniently easy. In addition, you can carry your gear on your back or as a duffle by its side handles.

  • Coil Leash
    Leashes are really nice to have when you’re paddling in rough surf and fall into the water. You don’t have to worry about your SUP floating away because you stay connected.

SUP Fin Advantages:

Removable Center SUP Tracking Fin for Easy TravelThis paddle board has 2 short outer fins plus a longer center tracking fin that you can easily remove. Therefore, you can roll your board up and travel with it without having to worry about the fin sticking out.

In addition, you can paddle with or without the tracking fin. For example, if you want to go paddleboarding in a river that may have shallow areas with rocks, you can simply take out the long center fin.
