The 2020 iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ is a well-built, stable inflatable SUP that performs incredibly well in a wide variety of paddling conditions. Measuring 11′ x 32″ x 6″ and weighing in at 26 pounds, the ALL-AROUND 11′ is capable of supporting up to 435 pounds, making it a great choice for larger paddlers…
iROCKER SUP is a fairly young company, but they’ve quickly amassed a very loyal following due to their high-quality construction and affordable pricing. The Jacksonville, FL-based company initially launched their inflatable SUP lineup with two models and they’ve now expanded their line to a total of nine iSUPs, including three from the premium BLACKFIN SUP range which they launched in March 2018 and one from their brand new entry-level Nautical SUP lineup. For a full comparison of iROCKER’s three iSUP ranges, check out our iROCKER SUP vs. BLACKFIN vs. Nautical buyer’s guide.
While iROCKER’s lineup is heavily focused on the all-around market, they also have a touring SUP, oversized multi-paddler model, and some wider boards that are great for SUP fishing and on-the-water fitness workouts.
In this iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ review, we’ll cover all of the new improvements over last season’s model, the build quality and construction, how the board performs, what’s included, pros and cons, optional add-ons, and warranty coverage. We’ll also share all current iROCKER SUP coupon codes and promotional discounts to help you save some money and get the best deal.
Lastly, for those who enjoy video, we’ve included a first look video on this page which highlights the changes to the model for 2020.

iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ Review: SUP Overview
Launched in May of 2017, iROCKER’s ALL-AROUND series delivered exactly what many had been asking for — wider boards with improved stability. The original iROCKER SPORT 11′ model was a great seller, but it’s not the most stable board on the water due to its narrower width.
Measuring 32″ wide, both of the models in iROCKER’s ALL-AROUND series offer excellent stability. In addition to the 11′ model, the company also released the iRocker ALL-AROUND 10′ for smaller paddlers.
Need even more stability?
For those who are looking for even more stability than the ALL-AROUND series offers, we’d recommend checking out the company’s popular 10’6″ ROCKER CRUISER, 10’6″ BLACKFIN Model X, and 11’6″ BLACKFIN Model XL models.
Completely revamped for 2019, the new ALL-AROUND 11′ features a sporty new design, 4 great color options (Blue, Aqua, White/Gray Stripe, White/Blue Stripe), bombproof quad-layer PVC construction, removable safety grab handles at the nose for children, a brand new Action Mount, and more.

The top deck of the 2020 iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ is covered with a comfy EVA foam deck pad. The newly redesigned traction pad features a double iROCKER logo-embossed pattern which is a nice premium touch that you normally only see on much higher-priced boards.

Located in the middle of the traction pad is a convenient carrying handle which makes it really easy to carry the board around when it’s fully inflated. There are eight stainless steel D-rings located along the sides of the deck pad that can be used to attach iROCKER’s optional kayak seat or shoulder carry strap. If you’re bringing along a lot of gear or a SUP cooler, these D-rings can also be used as secure tie-down attachment points.
Located at the board’s nose are six additional D-rings and an enlarged bungee cord storage area. This is a convenient place to securely stash a backpack or dry bag, shoes, change of clothes, etc. An outstanding feature for families, the ALL-AROUND 11′ also features removable safety handles for kids which provide children with a safe and secure place to hold onto while riding along on the nose of the board.
Another new addition to the board’s nose this season is the integration of 2 Action Mounts into the front cargo storage area. Last season, iROCKER added one to the nose so the second mount gives you the ability to secure additional accessories to your board such as a GoPro camera, iROCKER’s new fishing rod holder, a waterproof Bluetooth speaker, and plenty of other fun accessories. This is a fantastic feature that is really handy and it opens up some exciting new ways to use the ALL-AROUND 11′.
Located at the board’s tail is a Halkey-Roberts air valve and a final D-ring for attaching the included SUP leash…
iROCKER also added two mini Action Mounts near the tail of the ALL-AROUND 11′ this season which gives you even more options for securing accessories.
On the flip side, the ALL-AROUND 11′ SUP features a triple fin configuration. The three removable fins make for easier packing, storage, and transport and iROCKER has transitioned from black to all-white fins for 2020.
The fins quickly and easily attach with a toolless lever lock system. They simply drop into place and are secured by pushing down on the locking lever tab — super simple, and there are no tools to lose.
The ALL-AROUND 11′ iSUP is an extremely well-made inflatable paddle board. This season, iROCKER has upgraded the construction to a new triple-layer PVC composite that is lighter in weight without sacrificing toughness.
The tough outer skin of the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ board is virtually indestructible — this certainly isn’t a SUP that needs to be babied. It’s designed to withstand cuts, scrapes, and punctures, and you don’t have to worry about your dog’s nails causing damage to the top deck.
Once again this year, all of the hardware on the ALL-AROUND 11′ is top-notch and the fit and finish is excellent overall.
On the water, the ALL-AROUND 11′ is a blast to paddle. We feel that this board really hits a sweet spot in terms of versatility, stability, and overall performance — it’s easy to paddle, glides and tracks well, and can be used for recreational paddling, fishing, SUP fitness, small surf, paddling around a child or dog, and much more. If you’re looking for something a little faster, we’d recommend checking out the brand new BLACKFIN Model V inflatable touring SUP.
The ALL-AROUND 11′ is a board that works well for larger individuals and it can be enjoyed by paddlers of all experience levels — beginner through advanced.
Likes and Dislikes
Once again, we are really happy with the updates that iROCKER has made to the ALL-AROUND lineup for 2020. As good as these boards were over the past few seasons, this latest model is even nicer and we really like the new features.
The sporty new design is eye-catching and really stands out on the water. SUP fitness enthusiasts are sure to love the transition to a comfy double iROCKER logo-embossed traction pattern as it’s very easy on the hands and feet, and the rail D-rings and enlarged bungee storage areas give you increased onboard storage capabilities.
We also love the new Action Mount that iROCKER incorporated into the front cargo area — this gives you an easy way to capture fun footage of your paddling adventures and anglers are sure to love the new fishing rod holder accessory (more on that below).
Lastly, we really like the fact that all three fins are now removable as it makes the ALL-AROUND 11′ even more packable and portable than before. As we mentioned, this is also great news if you routinely stack multiple boards on the roof of your vehicle as it allows the boards to be stacked on top of each other in a much neater fashion.
As far as cons go, there’s honestly nothing to complain about. If you’re looking for a fun all-around SUP that can handle it all and is absolutely loaded with features, this is it. We would like to have the option of removing the center carry handle cover, but that’s nitpicking as the existing handle lays flat pretty well.
iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11'
|Max Capacity||435 pounds|
The iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ comes with a very nice bundle of SUP accessories. The company has included everything you need to start paddling, and there have been some great improvements to the accessories for 2020.
iROCKER completely revamped their SUP backpack a few years ago and this season they’ve made some very nice improvements to the bag.
In addition to the new design, iROCKER color-coded this year’s backpacks to match the ALL-AROUND 11′. There are 6 colors this season:
- Seafoam Green
Another change made to iROCKER’s SUP backpack this season is the addition of multiple zippered storage pockets which can be used to organize small accessories.
At the top of the pack, there’s even a zippered storage pouch designed to hold iROCKER’s new compact electric pump…
Unlike many other SUP bags that don’t leave you with a ton of space to work with, iROCKER’s backpack is very roomy and there’s plenty of space for your board, paddle, pump, SUP leash, change of clothes, etc. The interior of the bag also has two adjustable straps that can be used to secure the bag’s contents and prevent them from shifting around.
On the outside of the backpack are dual zippers which give you easy access to the bag’s interior. The bag has a nice clamshell design that opens up nice and wide, making it easy to pack and unpack your gear.
The bag’s exterior also features a convenient grab handle at the top, multiple compression straps, and a clear window where you can insert a luggage identification tag.
On the backside of the pack are two thickly padded shoulder straps that are super comfortable and fully adjustable. The shoulder straps have nylon webbed loops and plastic D-rings which you can use to attach small accessories with a carabiner, and there’s an adjustable sternum strap that goes across your chest for improved stability.
iROCKER also added a nice padded back cushion and an adjustable waist belt which further helps to stabilize the bag when it’s fully loaded and on your back.
On the very bottom of the backpack is a drainage hole with a metal grommet. There are also four rubber feet that keep the bag from sliding around when upright and help to reduce wear and tear.
iROCKER also includes an upgraded carbon fiber blend paddle with the ALL-AROUND 11′. This paddle conveniently breaks down into 3-pieces for easy transport and storage, and the blade is nicely color-coded with the board.
This paddle features a reliable, proven design that’s been used by the company for several years now and it also floats so you’ll never have to worry about losing it in the water. Taller paddlers will be happy to know that it can be extended to 86″.
The blade of the paddle is quite rigid and it’s made from a tough nylon material. The edges are covered by a super tough rubber coating which means you won’t have to worry about chipping the blade on rocks or other hard objects…
Full Throttle Pump
A few seasons ago, iROCKER transitioned from a standard single-chamber dual-action pump to a faster, more efficient dual-chamber triple-action model. This new pump dramatically reduced the time and effort needed to inflate the ALL-AROUND 11′.
This season, the company is once again including its Full Throttle pump which is even faster and easier to use than the original version, and it’s also much lighter (3.81 pounds vs. 5.34 pounds).
To assemble the pump, simply screw the flexible inflation hose onto the back of the pump’s handle and it’s ready to use.
On top of the pump’s handle is a built-in pressure gauge. The fact that the pressure gauge is built right into the pump makes it really convenient and there are no other parts to connect or lose.
On the back of the pump is an Action Control dial with three modes…
When you initially begin to inflate your board, turn the dial to setting #1. This mode quickly adds air to your fully deflated board by utilizing both chambers to pump air on both the up and downstrokes.
As you’re pumping and begin to feel serious resistance, turn the dial to setting #2. This setting bypasses one of the chambers and will now add air to your board on the up and down strokes from a single chamber.
Lastly, as the resistance in setting #2 becomes stronger, flip the Action Control dial to mode #3. This final mode will continue to bypass one of the cylinders, but now it will only add air to your board on the down strokes which will provide you with the leverage needed to finish inflating the board to 15 PSI.
We absolutely love iROCKER’s Full Throttle Pump and it’s a huge upgrade over the standard single-chamber dual-action pumps that other boards on the market are shipping with.
Also included in the bundle is a high-quality coiled SUP leash that’s also color-coded with the board. The super durable cord is 7mm thick and the coiled design keeps it out of the water, reducing drag.
The cuff of the leash is made out of thick neoprene material that provides plenty of comfy padding. Each end of the leash also features a metal swivel that helps to prevent tangles.
Another nice feature that iROCKER added to this leash is a secure key pocket on the inside of the ankle strap. There’s a velcro flap that securely closes over the pocket, giving you a great place to store your keys while you’re out on the water.
All iROCKER paddle boards come with an inflatable SUP repair kit. The kit is housed in a high-visibility orange container that has a screw-on lid. Inside the plastic canister, you’ll find three color-matched PVC patches, three replacement lever locks tabs for the removable fins, and a valve wrench.
User Manual, Sticker Pack, and Quick Start Guide
Last but not least, iROCKER includes a user manual with helpful setup and maintenance information, an iROCKER sticker pack, and a handy quick start guide.
As we mentioned at the beginning of this review, iROCKER also has a growing range of very nice SUP accessories. The following accessories are not included with the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ board, but are available as optional add-ons.
Kayak Seat Kit
iROCKER’s Kayak Seat Kit adds further versatility to the ALL-AROUND 11′, giving you the ability to transform your inflatable paddle board into a kayak. Included with the bundle is the kayak seat and kayak blade attachment.
The kayak seat quickly installs by simply attaching the metal hooks to the D-rings located along the rails of the ALL-AROUND 11′. The included straps are fully adjustable, allowing you to quickly adjust them to the desired length.
To attach the kayak blade to your paddle, simply remove the top piece and slide the kayak blade into place. Line up the pins with the holes, and close the locking mechanism.
SUP Cooler Deck Bag
Another nice add-on to consider is iROCKER’s SUP deck bag. This well-built bag is perfect for bringing along food and drinks, and the fully insulated liner helps to keep everything cool while you’re out on the water.
The top cover of the deck bag features a convenient zippered storage pocket for stashing small items and the back of the bag has an elastic bungee cord with four plastic hooks for securing the bag to the ALL-AROUND 11’s D-rings. Of course, you can also slide the deck bag under the existing bungee cord storage area at the board’s nose.
Located along the top of the bag is a convenient carrying handle that allows you to carry the bag around like a soft-sided lunchbox when it’s not strapped to the deck of your SUP. We really love the versatile design of this bag and you can use it for a lot more than just paddling.
Fishing Rod Holder
An exciting accessory for anglers is iROCKER’s fishing rod holder. This gives you a convenient and secure place to secure your rod while you’re out on the water and it screws in quickly and easily to the new Action Mount at the board’s nose…
Shoulder Carrying Strap
Another super handy accessory to consider is the iROCKER Shoulder Strap. This is great to have whenever you’re carrying your board around and it frees up a hand so you can carry additional gear.
The top of the strap is branded with the iROCKER SUP logo and there are 4 plastic D-rings for attaching small accessories. The underside of the strap features a grippy rubber liner that helps to keep the strap in place when the board is on your shoulder.
To use the strap, you simply attach the locking hooks to the D-rings along the rail of the ALL-AROUND 11′.
iROCKER Electric iSUP Pump
While the new Full Throttle Pump makes it much faster and easier to inflate the ALL-AROUND 11′, there’s nothing that beats the hands-free convenience of an electric paddle board pump. A new addition to iROCKER’s accessory range for 2019, this updated electric pump features an easy-to-use push-button design, digital display, built-in carrying handle, and auto-shutoff safety feature to prevent over inflation.
To power the pump up, you simply plug it directly into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter adapter or use the included alligator clips to connect it to the car battery. Then, just select your desired PSI and press the “On” button. The pump will automatically inflate the ALL-AROUND 11′ in just a few minutes, and the digital display tells you precisely how much air is in your board at all times during the process.
BLACKFIN SUP Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker (by Speaqua)
Another popular item in iROCKER’s accessory range is the BLACKFIN SUP Waterproof Speaker. This is a really fun little speaker that produces surprisingly rich sound and it’s available in two colors: Black and Tidal Blue.
Thanks to the fact that it’s 100% waterproof, sand/dustproof, and totally submersible, iROCKER’s new speaker can go anywhere you go and it even floats. There’s a handy suction cup mount on the bottom that allows you to stick it to smooth surfaces as well as a threaded insert that you can use to attach it to the Action Mount at the ALL-AROUND 11’s nose.
In addition to playing the music that is stored on your phone, this speaker also provides 4GB of built-in memory that can hold up to 1,000 songs — ideal for those times when you’d rather leave your phone at home.
The speaker’s internal rechargeable battery provides up to 5 hours of playback and whenever you happen to get a call, there’s a neat speakerphone/microphone/caller-ID function. Last but not least, you can wirelessly sync two BLACKFIN speakers together which is perfect if you want to share tunes with a friend or just need to pump up the volume.
If your SUP doesn’t have an accessory mount or you just want to add one more Action Mount to the ALL-AROUND 11, you can now order Action Mounts separately from iROCKER. The mount is super easy to attach to the deck of your SUP and iROCKER includes the 3M adhesive needed for the job.
iROCKER 5″ River Fin
For those who plan on paddling in shallow water, we highly recommend iROCKER’s new 5″ River Fin. This fin has a lower profile than the stock fin, providing you with the additional clearance needed for shallow water paddling.
Waterproof Phone Case
If you bring your phone along with you whenever you go paddleboarding, it’s a really good idea to protect it with a waterproof case. iROCKER now offers a protective case that’s compatible with phones up to 6.5″ x 3.5″ in size and it’ll even provide some flotation with most smaller phones (just blow a little air into the case before sealing it up).
Cell Phone Holder
Lastly, iROCKER’s new cell phone mount pairs nicely with the company’s new waterproof phone case and it does a good job of keeping your phone accessible at all times while you’re on the water. The spring-loaded design fits phones of all sizes and it quickly and conveniently screws into the ALL-AROUND 11’s Action Mounts.
iROCKER places a high priority on customer service, and the company responds quickly to inquiries and customer service issues. Our dealings with them have always been very pleasant and we’ve found them to be friendly and super helpful. We only hope that as the young company continues to grow, they maintain their focus on customer satisfaction.
The warranty coverage on the ALL-AROUND 11′ is 2 years for all manufacturer defects and the company also provides a generous 60-day money-back guarantee.

Should I get the ALL-AROUND 10′ or ALL-AROUND 11′?
Both models are fantastic but we prefer the slightly longer ALL-AROUND 11′ due to the fact that it is a bit faster on the water and tracks better. If you’re a smaller paddler, we’d recommend the 10′ model while average to large paddlers should bump up to the 11′ version.
iROCKER CRUISER vs. ALL-AROUND 11′ – which is better?

Where is the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ made?
The ALL-AROUND 11′ and all of iROCKER’s other inflatable paddle boards are designed in Jacksonville, FL and manufactured at one of the best iSUP factories in China.
I want to know how to install the iROCKER kayak seat, is it difficult?
iROCKER’s popular SUP seat is incredibly quick and easy to install to the ALL-AROUND 11′. Simply set the seat on the traction pad of the board and connect the four strap hooks to the D-rings along both rails. Next, just adjust the straps to your desired length and you’re ready to paddle.
What PSI should I pump iROCKER boards to?
The board is rated to 14-18 PSI and we’d recommend inflating it to 15 PSI.
