iRocker All-Around Inflatable SUP review

iROCKER SUP is a young company, but they have made themselves popular because of its affordable prices and the shape and design of their SUPs. In this review, we are going to look at the model’s improved features and construction, which makes it easy to perform incredibly well in all conditions. The upgrade on the design and materials is like no other.

Last year’s inflatable board was a fantastic board and could perform well in other conditions but even though it’s not perfect for surfing you might be surprised how effective it would be if you take it somewhere.

It’s mainly made for big riders and those who want to ride with extra people. It’s an excellent option for those who want to ride with their family.

Board design and materials

There are new colour schemes on the latest design’s carbon rails and the deck. There has been an upgrade on the materials, and extra handles have been included for better comfort and grip.

In our opinion, the new design is better. The board looks more sleek and modern. The remade boat looks like no other.

Gills have been added on the rails, and a crocodile skin texture has been incorporated in the deck. Also, the floor has new materials on top, new sets of colour which depends on the choice of your board.

The new iRocker 11’ comes in blue, crispy whites, elegant grey and blue colours. They have also done a thing with the paddle as it matches with the board you choose.

There are more features on the board. It now has new handles which can be removed at will. The handles are on the front of the deck where the bungee cord attaches to the D-rings. They are essential for your extra passengers. It’s where they hold onto when on the board. Its tapered nose has plenty of space where you can secure your gear. Also, there is a D-ring at the tail for your leash.

The board’s material has an extra layer of PVC. The iRockers All-Around boards previously had three, but the new one has a fourth layer. The extra layer has been vital in improving the board’s rigidity, durability and stability. Also, this has made the boat more valuable.
