iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′ Review: SUP Overview
The ALL-AROUND 10′ stand up paddle board delivers exactly what many of the company’s customers were looking for. While the original iROCKER SPORT 11′ model has been extremely popular, a lot of people wanted a wider paddle board with better stability.
The ALL-AROUND 10′ iSUP features an additional inch of width over the company’s SPORT model, making it a more stable board than the company’s initial release. This board really performs well in a variety of water conditions and it’s stable enough to be used for SUP fishing and fitness. While not the fastest board on the water, it glides nicely, tracks well, and is definitely a lot of fun to paddle. For those seeking even greater stability, we’d recommend checking out their 33″ wide iROCKER CRUISER, 34″ wide BLACKFIN Model XL, or 35″ wide Model X.
This iSUP features an eye-catching retro design that iROCKER paddle boards are known for. The ALL-AROUND 10′ model is available this year in blue as well as a brand new seafoam green design (which will definitely appeal to female paddlers). Our board is the blue version with twin white racing stripes.

The top of the ALL-AROUND 10′ features a newly improved deck pad with a comfy croc grip pattern that’s really easy on the hands and feet (this is great news for SUP fitness fans). There’s also a carry handle mid-board that’s covered by a comfortable neoprene cover. While the carrying handle does have a nice low-profile, we wish the neoprene cover was removable which would make it even more comfortable to sit or lay on.

Bombproof quad-layer PVC construction provides maximum durability and stiffness.8 of 8
Located along the sides of the pad are 8 stainless steel D-rings for attaching iROCKER’s kayak seat and shoulder carrying strap. You can also use these as tie-down points for securing your SUP cooler or bringing along additional gear.
At the nose of the ALL-AROUND 10′ are 6 more D-rings and a generously sized bungee cord storage area that is perfect for stashing a backpack or dry bag, Crocs, and other gear. This year, the attachment points have been pushed to the rails for added capacity and iROCKER has made the kids’ safety handles removable which is nice for paddlers who don’t find them particularly useful. If you do happen to have small children that like to ride along on the nose of the board, this feature is wonderful as it gives the kiddos a safe and secure place to hold onto.
Another exciting new addition to the ALL-AROUND 10’s nose for 2019 is an integrated Action Mount for attaching accessories such as a GoPro camera, fishing rod holder, waterproof speaker, etc. This upgrade makes the board even more versatile than before and gives you several new ways to enjoy your board without having to perform custom DIY modifications.
At the board’s tail is another D-ring for the included SUP leash as well as a high-quality Halkey-Roberts inflation valve…
On the underside of the ALL-AROUND 10′ is a triple fin setup with two small side fins and a large center fin. Previously, iROCKER used a combination of two fixed side fins and a large removable center fin, but this year the company has transitioned their entire lineup over to a removable tri-fin system. All three fins are now removable which allows you to roll the ALL-AROUND 10′ up into a smaller form for easier packing, storage, and transport. Additionally, if you happen to rack multiple boards on the roof of your vehicle, having the ability to remove all three fins allows you to stack the boards in a much neater fashion.
A change that was introduced last season, all regular iROCKER SUPs feature quad-layer, military-grade PVC construction that provides greater durability than earlier models (BLACKFIN models have been transitioned to a lighter triple-layer composite PVC build for 2019).
In addition to making the new ALL-AROUND 10′ even tougher than before, this added layer of PVC increases overall rigidity and boosts the maximum weight capacity of the board from 350 pounds to 370 pounds. Of course, the downside to the beefed-up build is added weight, and the 2019 model is slightly heavier than earlier versions of the model.
When fully inflated to the recommended pressure of 14-18 PSI, the ALL-AROUND 10′ is extremely stiff and feels very similar to a hard board when it’s under your feet…
Performance-wise, the new ALL-AROUND 10′ performs exactly like last year’s model. This versatile inflatable stand up paddle board is super fun in the water and it offers excellent stability.
The ALL-AROUND 10′ also tracks very well, and while it’s not the fastest board around, it doesn’t feel at all sluggish.
Suitable for beginners and experienced paddlers alike, the ALL-AROUND 10′ is a jack-of-all-trades that can pretty much do it all. From paddling the pup to SUP fitness (and everything in between), this highly capable board is a good choice if you place a high value on versatility.
Inflation and Setup
Inflating and setting up the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′ is extremely easy and takes approximately 10 minutes, depending on how quickly you pump the board up.
After removing the strap which keeps the board neatly folded up, just roll the board out, twist off the cover, insert the hose, and lock it into place with a twist. It’s important to make sure that the stem is in the “Up” position when inflating, as this allows air to enter the board while preventing it from escaping.
The pump that comes with the ALL-AROUND 10′ has a built-in pressure gauge, and you won’t really see the needle move until you get to about 7 PSI. After pumping the board up to the recommended pressure of 14-18 PSI, just twist the hose and disconnect it from the board’s valve.
Last but not least, flip the board over and attach the large center fin.
Deflating and packing up the ALL-AROUND 10′ is also a quick and easy process. First of all, make sure that you rinse the board off well with fresh water if you’ve been paddling in salt water. It’s also a good idea to give the board a quick wipe down at this point to dry it off.
Next, unscrew the valve cover and push in the valve stem for 2 or 3 seconds (warning, things get a little loud here as air escapes from the high-pressure valve). Wait a few more minutes for air to escape, then just roll the board up starting at the nose.
After the board is completely rolled up, position the included strap around the middle of the board and tighten it up to keep the board compressed. The board will now fit neatly into the included carry bag along with the rest of your gear.
Another area where this SUP board really shines is portability. As we already mentioned, it weighs in at 24 pounds and neatly packs up into the included carrying pack, making it incredibly easy to store and transport.
You can literally bring this paddle board with you anywhere. You can throw it on the roof rack of your car or into the backseat or trunk of any vehicle or ATV. You can even check it with your luggage when flying.
When not in use, the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′ slides neatly under your bed or into a closet.
Likes and Dislikes
We’ve recommended the ALL-AROUND 10′ to a lot of paddlers since the model’s introduction several seasons ago and the latest version is even better than before. iROCKER has added some nice tweaks this year which have further enhanced the board’s versatility and the new removable fin system makes it even easier to pack, store, and transport.
We love the new Action Mount that iROCKER has incorporated into the bungee storage area as it gives you even more ways to enjoy the ALL-AROUND 10′. Whether you want to capture amazing GoPro footage of you and your family, secure your fishing rod with the company’s new fishing rod holder, or listen to some tunes by attaching a waterproof speaker, the handy new Action Mount makes it all possible.
In terms of negatives, there’s honestly very little to complain about. We’d love to see a grab handle added to the board’s tail for pulling the board in and out of the water, and the overall weight of the board is still a bit on the heavy side this season due to the quad-layer PVC construction (although the added durability and rigidity is worth the tradeoff, in our opinion).
Lastly, while the center carry handle lays pretty flat as-is, having the ability to remove the neoprene cover entirely would make it slightly more comfortable for activities such as SUP fitness.
iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10' Rating
- Customer Support
|Max Capacity||370 pounds|
Two years ago, iROCKER introduced a lot of major improvements to their SUP accessory bundle. Since then, they’ve continued to make some nice tweaks to the accessories and this year’s bundle is nicer than ever.
Included with the 2019 ALL-AROUND 10′ is a generously sized SUP backpack with a new design, 3-piece fiberglass travel paddle, new Full Throttle Pump, inflatable paddle board repair kit, 10′ color-coded coiled SUP leash, sticker pack, quick start guide, and user manual.
After being completely revamped two seasons ago, the only real changes with the included carrying bag for 2019 are the usage of a thicker material, the addition of 4 new D-rings on the rear of the bag, and a fresh new design. While iROCKER’s pack has always been a basic, no-frills SUP bag, it gets the job done and offers plenty of room for storing the board and other accessories.
On the front of the backpack are two nylon webbed compression straps. There are additional ones on the sides of the pack, as well as an open mesh pocket and side carrying handle.
There’s a see-through luggage ID window on the uppermost part of the bag, and the bottom features a stainless steel grommet for draining as well as four rubber feet for added durability.
The rear of the backpack features another nylon webbed grab handle as well as two comfortable shoulder straps. They are fully adjustable and have a stabilizing sternum strap and plastic D-rings for securing accessories.
Also located on the back of the bag is a heavily padded back cushion. The pad is covered by breathable mesh material to keep things cool when the bag is on your back. There’s also an adjustable waist belt for additional stabilization.
The included backpack makes it super easy to carry your deflated board around and you can even throw it in with your checked luggage when flying.
iROCKER’s 3-piece fiberglass SUP paddle has remained unchanged for 2019. It features a well-proven, incredibly durable design and it’s fully adjustable from 79 to 86 inches which is obviously good news for taller paddlers.
iROCKER color-matches their paddles and boards which is a nice touch, and the blade of the paddle features a thin rubber coating on the edges to prevent chips caused by rocks and other hard objects.
Full Throttle Pump
Last season, iROCKER upgraded their standard dual-action pump to a faster, more efficient dual-chamber triple-action model that dramatically reduced the time and effort needed to inflate their boards. This season, the company has introduced an updated version of that pump that is lighter, faster, and even easier to use.
iROCKER’s new Full Throttle Pump weighs in at only 3.81 pounds (vs. the previous version’s 5.34 pounds) and it requires less time and effort to pump the ALL-AROUND 10′ to 15 PSI. It once again comes with a flexible inflation hose that screws on to the rear of the pump and there is a built-in pressure gauge located on the top of the handle which tells you exactly how much air is in your board at all times during the inflation process.
On the rear of the pump is an Action Control dial that allows you to easily change the pump’s mode. There are three settings that you can select by simply turning the dial.
When you first begin to inflate the board, set the adjustable dial to mode #1. In this mode, the pump will rapidly add air to your deflated board on both the up and down strokes using both cylinders.
Once you begin to feel significant resistance, just flip the dial to mode #2. You’ll now bypass one of the cylinders but will continue to inflate the board on both the up and down strokes.
Lastly, when pumping becomes too difficult in mode #2, turn the dial to setting #3. This mode will give you the additional power needed to inflate your board to 15 PSI, as it operates in single-chamber mode and only adds air on the downstrokes.
In addition to color-matching their SUP paddles, iROCKER also includes a color-coded safety leash with all of their stand up paddle boards. iROCKER’s 10′ leash features a durable coiled design and a comfortable ankle cuff. There’s also a hidden key storage pocket with a handy Velcro closure.
The ALL-AROUND 10′ also comes with an iSUP repair kit. Included is a valve wrench, three color-coded PVC repair patches, and three replacement lever lock clips for the board’s removable fins.
Stickers, Quick Start Guide, & User Manual
Lastly, iROCKER includes a nice sticker pack, quick start guide, and user manual which contains lots of helpful advice for setting up and maintaining the ALL-AROUND 10′.
Optional Add-On Accessories
In addition to the popular range of iROCKER paddle boards, the company also has a growing collection of SUP accessories. While the following accessories are not included with the ALL-AROUND 10′, they are available as add-ons.
Shoulder Carrying Strap
An extremely convenient accessory that makes it even easier to carry the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′, iROCKER’s carry strap attaches quickly and easily to two of the D-rings along the board’s rail. After clipping the secure hooks to the D-rings, just throw the strap over your shoulder and adjust to your desired length.
Sewn into the top of the strap are four plastic D-rings which are great for attaching small accessories with a carabiner and the underside of the strap is lined with a grippy rubber material which helps to prevent slippage when the strap is over your shoulder.
The iROCKER kayak seat bundle is a fun add-on that gives this inflatable SUP a lot of added versatility. It quickly attaches to the top of the board, transforming the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′ into a kayak.
Included with the kit is a seat and blade attachment that connects securely to the end of the ALL-AROUND 10’s paddle shaft.
To attach the seat to the board, simply clip the metal hooks at the end of the nylon webbed straps to the D-rings along the edges of the EVA foam pad. The straps are fully adjustable, allowing you to dial in the perfect length.
SUP Deck Bag Cooler
Another nice accessory to consider is iROCKER’s SUP deck bag cooler. A well-built bag that is perfect for bringing food and beverages along when you paddle, this SUP cooler is fully insulated to keep the bag’s contents cool.
On the outside of the bag’s lid is a zippered pocket which is great for stashing small items. There’s also a carrying handle on the side which allows you to carry the cooler like a soft-sided lunch box when it’s not strapped to the top of your paddle board.
On the back of the bag is an elastic bungee cord with four plastic mounting hooks. These attach easily and securely to the ALL-AROUND 10’s D-rings, but you can also slip the bag under the board’s bungee deck rigging.
Lastly, the entire interior of the bag is lined with an insulated liner which helps to keep your food and drinks cool while the bag is strapped to the deck of your board. There’s plenty of room for food as well as cans and bottles of your favorite drinks.
iROCKER Electric Paddle Board Pump
A newly added accessory for 2019, iROCKER’s electric paddle board automatically inflates the ALL-AROUND 10′ in just a few minutes, providing the ultimate in hands-free convenience. While the included Full Throttle Pump does a great job of inflating the board, nothing beats an electric iSUP pump.
iROCKER’s new pump features a compact and lightweight design that is easy to carry around and it comes with a cigarette lighter adapter plug as well as alligator clips for which can be attached directly to your vehicle’s battery.
For safety, there’s an auto-shutoff feature that prevents over inflation and the pump is incredibly easy to use — just plug it in, set the desired PSI, and press the “On” button.
BLACKFIN Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker (by Speaqua)
Another new accessory that we’re really excited about is the BLACKFIN SUP Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker. This tough little speaker produces surprisingly good sound and is completely waterproof, sand/dust proof, fully submersible, and even floats.
Available in two colors (Tidal Blue and Black), the speaker features a removable suction cup on the bottom that allows it to be secured to a wide variety of smooth surfaces. When you remove the suction cup, you’ll find a convenient threaded insert that allows you to screw the speaker directly onto the new Action Mount at the ALL-AROUND 10’s nose.
This speaker produces a rich sound and is incredibly fun to bring along on the water. In addition to playing music from your phone, the speaker also has 4GB of built-in memory that can store up to 1,000 songs — ideal for those times when you don’t feel like bringing your phone along.
There’s also a rechargeable internal battery that provides up to 5 hours of playback and in the event that you get a phone call while you’re out on the water, there’s a really cool speakerphone/microphone function with caller-ID.
Lastly, the BLACKFIN Waterproof Speaker supports dual-pairing which means that you and a friend can wirelessly connect and sync two speakers together while you’re out paddling.
If you don’t have an accessory mount on your paddle board or simply want the ability to add more than one accessory to your ALL-AROUND 10′, iROCKER now offers you the ability to order mounts separately. The mount comes with 3M adhesive, allowing you to quickly and easily attach it to the top deck of your SUP.
iROCKER 5″ River Fin
If you’re planning to spend time in shallow water, another add-on accessory that we highly recommend picking up iROCKER’s 5″ River Fin. This shorter fin will give you additional clearance and is fully compatible with the center fin box.
Waterproof Phone Case
iROCKER SUP also has a new waterproof cell phone case available this season. Capable of protecting phones up to 6.5″ x 3.5″ in size, this handy little dry bag comes with a lanyard and even floats with smaller phones (just blow some air into it before sealing it up).
Cell Phone Holder
An optional accessory that works really well when paired with iROCKER’s waterproof phone case, this new cell phone holder quickly attaches ALL-AROUND 10’s Action Mount, enabling you to keep your cell phone handy at all times while you’re out paddling.
Fishing Rod Holder
A new addition to the company’s accessory line for 2019, iROCKER’s new fishing rod holder screws easily onto the new Action Mount at the board’s nose, giving anglers a secure and super convenient place to stash their rod while out on the water.
The 2019 ALL-AROUND 10′ once again comes with iROCKER’s rock-solid 2-year warranty which covers you in the event of a manufacturer defect. The company also offers a risk-free 30-day refund policy for added peace of mind.
Where to Buy it
If you want to get the lowest price on the new iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′, we recommend buying the board directly from the official iROCKER website. In addition to their fast, free shipping and low prices, iROCKER won’t charge you sales tax unless your state requires it.
The iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′ inflatable SUP is a fantastic board for paddlers 5’10” and under who want top-notch quality at a very reasonable price (larger paddlers should check out the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′).
The ALL-AROUND 10′ is a versatile, extremely well-built board that comes with a great bundle of accessories. The new seafoam green design is definitely going to be popular among female paddlers and we really like all of the new features and tweaks added this season.
At the end of the day, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better board at this price point. The iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′ is well-designed, built like a tank, and comes with everything you need to start paddling. The 2-year warranty and money back guarantee show that the company is serious about standing behind their gear and we love the fact that customer service remains a top priority.
