A tandem iSUP that’s designed for multi-paddler fun, the 2020 Bluefin SUP Cruise Carbon 15’ is a large inflatable paddle board that comes loaded with premium features, upgraded construction, 5-year warranty, and a fantastic accessory bundle.
Tandem SUP is an activity that has gained some traction over the past several years as more paddlers are discovering how fun it is to go paddling with someone else. If this is an aspect of the sport that you’d like to explore and you’re shopping around for a 2-person SUP, the Cruise Carbon 15’ is an inflatable that should be on your radar. Budget-minded paddlers should also check out the lower-priced Bluefin SUP Cruise 15′ which offers many of the same features in a more affordable package.
A relatively new SUP company startup, Bluefin SUP is wasting no time at all in establishing itself as a leader in the market. With an expanding lineup of high-quality boards at affordable price points, the brand is growing in popularity and expanding their reach in 2020 with a bigger focus on the Canadian and US markets.
Currently, there are 10 inflatable SUPs in the Bluefin SUP range. The company has a diverse lineup of models including a youth board, multi-paddler SUPs, touring boards, and all-around models.
Part of the company’s higher-end carbon range that includes the smaller Cruise Carbon 10’8” and Cruise Carbon 12’ iSUPs, the 15’ is constructed with dual air chambers and carbon fiber rail reinforcements for the ultimate in stiffness. The Cruise Carbon line is recognized as some of the industry’s stiffest inflatable paddle boards which translates to hard board-like performance.
Measuring 15’ x 36” x 6” and weighing in at 44 pounds, the Cruise Carbon 15’ is capable of supporting up to 529 pounds of weight.
The board features multiple grab handles positioned along the rails, nose, and tail. These make it easier to handle the oversized board both on land and in the water.
Running along the rails are metal D-rings and there are dual bungee cargo areas at the nose and tail for added onboard storage space. There’s also a GoPro action camera mount at the nose which makes it easy to capture great pictures and videos of your tandem paddling adventures.
|Max Pressure||28 PSI|
|Max Capacity||529 pounds|
The deck pad is constructed from soft EVA foam and it features a diamond crocodile traction pattern. There’s also a raised kick tail at the rear of the deck pad for added control.
On the bottom of the board are three fins — the two side fins are permanently fixed while the center fin is removable and uses a US fin box.
As mentioned, the Cruise Carbon 15’ is backed by an industry-leading 5-year warranty that covers you in the event of a manufacturing defect. Inflatable paddle boards typically include a 1, 2, or 3-year warranty, so having coverage for a full 5 years is great for added peace of mind and it shows how serious this young company is about standing behind their gear.
Also included with the board is an extremely nice SUP accessory bundle. In the box is a wheeled travel bag, double-chamber pump for faster inflation, safety leash, repair kit, two kayak seat kits, and two adjustable carbon fiber paddles.
Last but not least, we always place a high value on the quality of customer service provided by a company. There are plenty of brands who are quick to make a sale but slow to respond in the event of an issue — we’re happy to report that Bluefin SUP has an excellent reputation in that area and our dealings with them have been extremely positive.
