iROCKER SUP – Paddle Board Reviews 2021

Jacksonville, FL-based iROCKER SUP has a well-deserved reputation for producing high-quality, affordably priced iSUPs and the company continues to expand their lineup of  popular inflatable SUP boards and paddling accessories. Currently, the company has a total of 9 affordable inflatables ranging in size from 10′ to 13’6″ in length.

Beginning in 2020, the company began to construct all of their iROCKER boards with a triple-layer PVC  composite construction for great durability, rigidity, and carrying capacity while reducing weight by 20%. All iROCKER SUP inflatables are either 6″ or 8″ thick and extremely rigid.

The company’s premium BLACKFIN line also features a triple-layer composite PVC construction along with premium accessories and copious integrated mount points that are compatible with a impressive array of add-on hardware.  BLACKFIN boards are the undisputed king of accesorizable SUPs!

New for 2020, iROCKER has introduced a new budget line called Nautical. While still featuring iROCKER’s design DNA and global service and support, they’re dialed back the extras to create a great basic board for beginners or paddlers on a tight budget. 

Why We Recommend iROCKER SUPs

2020 InflatableBoarder.com Top Picks Award Winner

One of the things we’ve always loved about iROCKER SUPs is the fact that they come with everything you need to get out on the water. Each board includes a high-quality pump, paddle, SUP travel backpack, leash, and repair kit.

Another big selling point of the iROCKER inflatable SUP line is their excellent 2-year warranty against manufacturer defects and  generous 30-day money-back guarantee. The company has a great track record of providing top-shelf customer service, and it’s obvious that customer satisfaction is a high-priority to them.

iROCKER has really raised the bar this year with their redesigned inflatable SUP line. The entire range is extremely well-built, loaded with top-shelf features, and includes one of the nicest SUP accessory bundles on the market. When it comes to durability, performance, and overall value, this season’s iROCKER line is tough to beat.

iROCKER Inflatable SUP Reviews

NAUTICAL by iROCKER

The new NAUTICAL SUP was introduced by iROCKER in 2020 as a versatile all-around board at a low price. Available in both a 10’6″ and 11’6″ length, iROCKER designed the board for beginners just trying out SUPs for the first time, families who need to buy multiple inflatable SUPs without breaking the bank, and anyone on a budget.

It necessarily cuts back on some of the extras of the main iROCKER line (like action mounts) and has simpler included accessories, but it still  contains iROCKER’s DNA and customer service. Performance-wise it handles very similarly to the iROCKER All-Around 10′ and  All-Around 11′. For an in-depth look, check out our iROCKER NAUTICAL SUP board review.

Nautical SUP Accessory Set

iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10'

Measuring 10’x32″x6″ and weighing in at 24 pounds, the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′ SUP is a stable inflatable paddle board that is suitable for a wide range of paddling activities. This board has a maximum weight capacity of 370 pounds and it also features a generous bungee cord storage area at the nose and additional D-rings for securing your belongings. iROCKER has also added neoprene safety grips at the nose which is great if you paddle with small children.

Check out our iROCKER ALL-AROUND 10′ SUP board review for more info.

iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11'

The larger board in iROCKER’s popular ALL-AROUND series, the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ weighs in at 27 pounds and measures 11’x32″x6″. This board has a higher max weight capacity (435 pounds), so it’s an excellent choice for larger paddlers. The ALL-AROUND 11′ features all of the same specs as the 10′ model, but in a larger package. If you’re looking for a versatile 11′ board that is affordable and well-built, the iROCKER ALL-AROUND 11′ iSUP is one that should be on your radar.

iROCKER CRUISER 10'6"

The iROCKER CRUISER 10’6″ SUP features a wide profile that delivers excellent overall stability. This board measures 10’6″x33″x6″ and weighs in at 25 pounds. The max capacity is 400 pounds, so it’s a good option for heavier paddlers and bringing along a decent amount of gear. The extra large bungee storage area at the board’s nose and D-rings along the rails give you plenty of places to secure your gear.

iROCKER SPORT 11'

The first board ever released by iROCKER, the iROCKER SPORT 11′ model measures 11’x30″x6″ and is a good choice for larger, more experienced paddlers. The iROCKER 11′ SPORT can support up to 385 pounds, and it rolls up to just 33″ x 13″ when fully deflated. The SPORT 11′ is slightly faster than iROCKER’s other models, but it’s not quite as stable. The SPORT 11′ comes with everything you need to get started.

iROCKER BIG BLUE

The biggest inflatable paddle board ever released by iROCKER, the massive iROCKER BIG BLUE is a super fun, oversized multi-paddler model that measures 13’6″x50″x8″.

Capable of carrying up to five paddlers and weighing in at 60 pounds, the iROCKER BIG BLUE is the perfect board for group fun on the water. Included with the BIG BLUE are two fiberglass paddles and either an electric pump or two dual-action manual pumps. For more info on this big SUP board, read our iROCKER Big Blue SUP board review.

BLACKFIN Model X 10'6" 2020

Freshly updated this year, the popular BLACKFIN Model X is part of iROCKER’s impressive new line of higher-end inflatables. Measuring 10’6″x35″x6″ and weighing in at 29 pounds, the Model X offers extreme stability and is currently the company’s widest board. The premium BLACKFIN line comes loaded with top-shelf features like carbon rails, twin bungee storage areas, upgraded U.S. fin boxes, carbon paddles, dual-chamber SUP pump, and wheeled roller backpack.

BLACKFIN Model XL 11'6" 2020

The big brother of the smaller Model X, the Model XL measures 11’6″x34″x6″ and weighs 32 pounds. This board has an impressive max weight capacity of 485 pounds and is a great choice for larger, heavier paddlers who want an extremely well-built, feature-rich inflatable SUP. Like the smaller Model X, the BLACKFIN Model XL is a super versatile iSUP that is built like a tank and can handle anything you throw at it.

Be sure to read our BLACKFIN Model XL SUP board review to get the scoop on this impressive new board.

BLACKFIN Model V 12'6" 2020

The newest edition to iROCKER’s BLACKFIN lineup, the Model V is a fast touring SUP that measures 12’6″x32″x6″ and weighs in at 27 pounds. A board that is perfect for paddlers who enjoy paddling longer distances, this iSUP really glides well in the water and the dual bungee storage areas and multiple tie-down points give you plenty of onboard storage for gear.

Certainly one of this year’s best inflatable touring SUPs, the Model V is certainly going to be a popular board in the BLACKFIN lineup. Check out our BLACKFIN Model V SUP board review for more details on this new touring SUP.

iROCKER SUP Warranty Information

We like that iROCKER offers a “no questions asked” 60-day return policy for a full refund. You will pay shipping, which is common, but there is no mention on their website of a restocking fee, which is better than most return policies. You may want to confirm that when purchasing.

The iROCKER warranty applies to Nautical, BLACKFIN and iROCKER brands. Their warranty provides 2 years on iROCKER and BLACKFIN paddle boards and only 1 year on NAUTICAL SUPs – pretty standard. Pumps and 2020 accessories are covered for 1 year which is as good as it gets. They also commit to a response to a warranty claim within 2 days…a gold standard. 

We thought it was really interesting that iROCKER was the only company to explicitly list what they considered a manufacturer defect in a separate section.  Most just list what “isn’t”. Their list of defects included: Seam leaks, air bubbles between seams, obvious workmanship mistakes-out of the box, and extracted handles.

Overall, iROCKER’s terms are pretty straight forward.  Read up on their warranty and return policy here.

Frequent iROCKER SUP Questions

Absolutely. iROCKER SUP is an International company with online stores in a variety of locations around the world. To buy an iROCKER or BLACKFIN SUP board, just click here and you'll be redirected to the nearest online store.
iROCKER SUP makes some of the most durable inflatable paddle boards on the market today. All of their boards feature a high-quality drop-stitch core, multiple layers of bombproof PVC, and top-shelf hardware. Also, every iROCKER and BLACKFIN SUP board is covered by a rock-solid 2-year warranty that covers you in the event of a manufacturing defect and you'll also have 60 days to check the board out risk-free. If well-cared for, your iROCKER paddle board should last for many years.
Deflating your iROCKER inflatable SUP is quick and easy. Simply unscrew the valve cover, press down the valve stem until you hear a gush of air escaping, and then turn it 1/4 turn to the left. That will lock the stem in the open position and allow the air in your board to be released. Once most of the air is out, you can roll the board from the nose to push out any remaining air, before pushing the inflation pin down, rotating 1/4 turn to the right, and screwing the valve cover back on.
We like to fold the board from the tail as it allows you to work around the fin boxes. Simply fold the tail over so the fin boxes are facing up, then fold the center fin back over the side fins, and finish folding to the nose.
Performing an iSUP repair is typically an easy DIY job and we recommend Clifton Urethane Adhesive.
BLACKFIN SUP is the company's premium inflatable paddle board range and it offers paddlers additional features and an improved SUP accessory bundle.
iROCKER SUP was started in May of 2013 by Steve Elder and Dave Erwin.
Except for the 60-pound BIG BLUE, all iROCKER and BLACKFIN iSUPs weigh between 24 and 27 pounds.
When the time comes to store your board away for the wintertime, just pack it up and stash it away in a closet, under your bed, or in your garage. Also, make sure that the board is completely dry before packing it up for long-term storage.
Pumping up your iROCKER or BLACKFIN SUP is super easy to do. First, unscrew the valve cover at the tail of your board and then screw the flexible inflation hose onto the back of the hand pump. Next, secure the pump's hose to the board's valve, flip the pump's setting dial to "1", and begin pumping. Whenever you meet significant resistance, just turn the dial to setting "2" and then to setting "3" to finish inflating your board to the recommended inflation pressure of 15 PSI.
iROCKER SUPs are made at one of the finest inflatable factories in China.
