ISLE SUP Reviews
The most versatile iSUP in ISLE’s iSUP lineup, the Pioneer is an all-around inflatable paddle board that can be used for a wide variety of paddling activities and conditions. This board has a great looking design and comes in two colors this season.
The top deck of the ISLE Pioneer features front and rear bungee storage areas giving you plenty of onboard storage capacity for your gear. There’s also a convenient grab handle located at the board’s nose which is useful for pulling the Pioneer in and out of the water. Lastly, the comfortable brushed EVA foam traction pad is easy on the hands and feet which is great news for SUP fitness enthusiasts. You can get more details on this versatile all-around SUP by reading the ISLE Pioneer SUP board review here.
The brand new ISLE Scout is a stable all-around board that features a massive traction pad which runs from the board’s nose all the way to the tail. This added coverage is perfect for paddling around your dog or children and there’s a bungee storage area at the tail for securing your dry bag or backpack while the nose of the board is occupied by a passenger.
Measuring 10’6″ x 32″ x 6″, the Scout offers good stability and can be used for everything from SUP fitness to cruising around with friends, family, and pets. For more details on this new iSUP model, please see our ISLE Scout SUP board review.
The ISLE Explorer has been the company’s most popular inflatable SUP over the past few seasons, offering a nice blend of overall versatility and paddling performance. The pointed nose profile of the board helps it to cut through wind and chop and the 32″ width gives it good stability.
The Explorer is available in two sizes this season: a smaller 11′ version and its larger 12′ sibling. Both boards are 32″ wide and 6″ thick.
Like most of ISLE’s other inflatable paddle boards this year, the Explorer features dual bungee storage areas for added carrying capacity. For more info on ISLE’s most popular iSUP design or to check out reader reviews, see our ISLE Explorer 11′ SUP board review and the ISLE Explorer 12′ SUP board review.
Last but not least is ISLE’s largest inflatable SUP model, the massive Megalodon. Available in both 12′ and 15′ versions, this big SUP board is capable of hauling you and a ton of your friends.
The Megalodon features dual air valves at the tail for faster inflation and deflation, and there are a variety of grab handles which make it much easier to carry around. An oversized bungee storage area at the nose gives you and your crew a secure spot to stash gear and the 8″ thickness gives it an impressive amount of rigidity, even when loaded up with a large number of paddlers.

ISLE Warranty Information
ISLE gives you a 60 day return policy (from date of purchase) wherein you can try their products and if you aren’t satisfied – for any reason – you may return it for a full refund less a 20% restocking fee per item. Many companies do not require a restocking fee and there are only a couple of them which have a 20% fee. Shipping is on you – which is the norm.
Their warranty provides defect-free workmanship for 1 year on inflatable boards and bags, with 60 days on pumps, leashes and paddles (which is the average in the industry). We should note there are companies that don’t offer any warranty on accessories.
ISLE is one of a few companies to explicitly state that you should reject any damaged goods. If you open the package and find damage, you have 3 days to contact them.
Overall, their warranty is rather average. We did like that this 15-year old company’s online warranty and return policy was clear to understand.
