The Tower Social 11'5" - a fun, social SUP that will have the whole family spending more time on the water.
At a volume of 237 liters and a width of 31, this 11'5" board is truly tandem friendly. It will glide smoothly carrying up to 275 lbs, so throw a friend up front and enjoy the water together. While its a beefy stand up paddle board in terms of stability and floatation, at only 27 lbs with pad and fins its actually 5-10 lbs lighter than many of the other large SUPs on the market.
The finishing touches on the board were given just as much thought. Unlike many SUPs, where the traction pad is an afterthought, the sharp looking Tower branded traction pad was designed as an accessory to enhance the beauty of the board. A 2+1 Futures fin box configuration was added to allow for flexibility in intended use. A maintenance free air vent and a single longboard SUP center fin are included with every board.
The Tower Social is a beautiful blend of technology and aesthetic design. This stylishly futuristic board features an an outer layer of 6 oz fiberglass and an inner layer of 10 oz high-tech carbon cross link material (it's Kevlar, actually like in bulletproof vests), which adds shear strength and breathtaking design. These boards were designed in California in Tower's San Diego SUP factory, yet due to our manufacturer direct distribution model they are $1000 less expensive than comparable quality boards sold thru retail by other brands.
Benefits of Carbon Cross Link
More rigid - Compared to traditional epoxy and fiberglass construction, carbon cross link boards are quite a bit more rigid.
Stylish design - The look of these boards really blows people away. The carbon cross link mesh looks like nothing else on the market and gives the board a clean, stylish, and futuristic design.
