Tower Paddle Boards Adventurer 2 Review: Specs
The Tower Adventurer 2 is accompanied by an impressive specifications sheet.
Weighing in at 25 pounds and measuring 10’4″ (length) by 32″ (width) by 6″ (thickness), the Adventurer 2 is capable of carrying up to 400 pounds with no problem. The drop stitch construction and 6″ board thickness combine to make the Adventurer 2 one seriously rigid inflatable SUP.
Tower used an ultra-tough, military grade PVC material on the Adventurer 2 (the same stuff used on Zodiac inflatable boats), allowing the board to withstand cuts and damage from rocks, sticks, and other objects. The Adventurer 2 is so durable, that it’s even been thrown off of buildings and driven over with zero damage.
We love the 6″ thickness of the Adventurer 2, as it causes the board to sit higher in the water and results in a faster paddling board. Additionally, the extra thickness prevents sag and increases both rigidity and board comfort.
To give you an idea of the strength that this iSUP board has, it will support a 200 pound person while propped up between two chairs. This is remarkable rigidity, and a 4″ inflatable SUP would not come close to this type of support.
Recommended PSI + Additional Details
While the Adventurer 2 10’4″ can handle 25 PSI, Tower recommends that it be kept around 10-11 PSI.
The nose Rocker on this iSUP is 4 inches, and there is no tail rocker. The fin configuration is a 2+1, with a large center fin that is detachable.
Lastly, the board features carrying handles on the front and rear of the board, a front towing d-ring, and a rear d-ring for attaching your surf leash.

What Comes With the Adventurer 2?
The Tower Adventurer 2 10’4″ iSUP Package includes the inflatable paddle board, removable fin, paddle, and pump. The board also comes with a high-quality Tower deck pad and a repair kit (patches and a valve wrench), and you’ll find the best price here.
We would have really liked to have seen a backpack or carrying bag included with the Adventurer 2, but we understand that at this price point, that might not be a realistic expectation. For those who really want the convenience and added protection of a backpack, Tower offers one separately for purchase here (which we recommend getting).
Portability of the Tower Adventurer 2
Due to the inflatable design of the board, the Adventurer 2 is super easy to store and transport. After deflating the board, it simply rolls up into the footprint of a sleeping bag.
The Adventurer 2 is much easier to store and transport than a traditional hard paddle board, so it is ideal for women and those who have small vehicles or apartments without lots of storage space. No car rack is needed with the Tower Adventurer 2 inflatable paddle board—just deflate it and throw it in the back of your car.
The Adventurer 2 is also an awesome traveler, as it can easily pack down and get checked with your luggage whenever you fly.
