Description

Introducing the Chris Craft Edition by Tower, a Premium Inflatable SUP

The Chris Craft Edition by Tower is a beautiful, top-shelf collaboration by Tower Paddle Boards and Chris Craft. Making luxury boats for over 140 years, Chris Craft, is one of the oldest and most renowned high-end boat builders in America and the world. The beauty, attention to detail, and craftsmanship of Chris Craft boats is well known among boaters worldwide. Tower Paddle Boards is widely known as one of the world's finest makers of inflatable paddle boards. The Chris Craft Edition by Tower brings these industry leaders together on a collaboration that will look right at home tied up to the finest yachts in the world. Even better if it matches your very own Chris Craft boat.

This is the Chris Craft Edition by Tower "Board Only" option. No pumps or paddles are included. This "Board Only" option includes a 10'4" by 32" by 6" premium inflatable SUP, a high-end Tower branded deck pad that emulates the signature teak wood strip look of Chris Craft boats, a 2+1 fin configuration with a removable center fin, a back-up center fin, a hand hold strap, a roll-up carrying strap, a towing ring on the nose, a cargo net, an extra handle in the front and back, and a leash attachment ring on the tail. You also get one replacement fin as those can get lost easily.

A Giant Leap forward in Inflatable SUP Design

Frankly, virtually all 4" inflatable SUPs (which is pretty much all inflatable SUPs on the market) leave a lot to be desired. That's putting it nicely. They sag in the middle and ride low in the water so you end up standing in a puddle of cold water, which is miserable. The sagging and undulating ride also slows you down. The 6" thick, military grade Chris Craft Edition by Tower Inflatable SUP is dramatically more rigid, plus it floats higher in the water so no wet feet. But this is only one of many advances that set the Chris Craft Edition by Tower Inflatable SUP apart from the competition.

Amazing Rigidity

The Chris Craft Edition by Tower Inflatable SUP is made from extremely rugged materials like those you would find on the highly regarded Zodiac boats and extreme river rafts. The amazing rigidity in the Chris Craft Edition by Tower is created by thousands of vertically oriented strands of identical length that connect the top deck to the bottom. When inflated, they form a structure that has the rigidity of a piece of plywood, and the thicker you go the exponentially more rigid it gets.

You'll be amazed. We can literally put the front tip of the 10'4" x 6" Chris Craft Edition by Tower on one chair and the rear tip on another chair and a 200 lb person can stand in the middle and you can barely see the thing flex. Do this with most 4" inflatable SUPs and they will taco almost to the floor. Even 3/4" plywood flooring would probably break over this almost 10' span.

A Viable EPS/Epoxy Board Alternative - We're not kidding!

Traditionally, inflatable SUPs were only a consideration for traveling - store one in the cuddy cabin on your yacht, take it with you on the plane, or haul it into that secret mountain lake or river and you can stand up paddle board in the farthest corners of the earth. With the rigidity of the Chris Craft Edition by Tower, an inflatable SUP is now also a viable EPS/Epoxy board alternative for anyone who isn't a die-hard surfer. And it still enjoys all the storage and transportation advantages because it's an inflatable paddle board.

Benefits of an Inflatable SUP over an EPS/Epoxy board

- Easier to store - When rolled up, it's 1 foot in diameter and 33" wide.

- Indestructible - Never worry again about dings and board cracks. I've literally thrown these things off a 2nd story deck and I frequently set it down anywhere (gravel, a parking lot, even on cement stairs).

- Easier to transport - No need for roof racks. About the size of a rolled sleeping bag, it easily fits in any car or boat, can be checked on a plane, and can even be strapped onto a bicycle or motorcycle.

- Softer - You can literally play bumper boats with these. Kids can jump from one board to the other like they're jumping on an inner tube. You won't get knocked out in the waves either.

- Easy on the feet - While very rigid, the air does cushion your feet a lot more than a hard board, no matter how good the deck pad is.

It Pays To Do Some Research

Review by: from Milky Way Galaxy on 8/30/2018
I have used my new Chris Craft Adventurer 2 six times at this time. I wasn't planning to get a SUP until next summer, but when my girlfriend picked one up, while she was in Montana, I decided to pull the trigger and get one too, as we had been talking about how much fun it would be to do together. I knew that I wanted an inflatable for easy storage, taking on rivers, longevity, and ability to carry heavy loads. I am currently 250 lbs. I read reviews on all the top rated SUP's in my price range (under $800.00), and I kept coming back to the Tower Adventurer 2. I am glad that I did so much research, and I couldn't be happier with my decision.



It seems to be a great all around balance of maneuverability and tracking. I did not have much experience with SUP's, but have ridden some with my brother, who has been doing it for a while. It felt slightly wobbly at first, but I had not been on one for a while. It was plenty easy to stand on. After a day on the Lake, I felt very stable on it. I didn't think, from reading the reviews, that I would be able to feel it flex at all. I have to say that, for the most part, it does feel like a hard paddle board, only more forgiving, but I can feel it flex slightly when I bounce on it. I am running it around 13 PSI. In no way does it bother me.



As I mentioned before, the ability to handle a heavy load (up to 400 lbs) was a key factor for me in choosing the Tower. Both my girlfriend and I are able to stand on it, and our feet stayed dry. That is pushing 400 lbs, so I can attest to this being a legitimate weight rating.



So far, I have used it on lakes and rivers. We just did our second river run yesterday. Man, was that a blast. I did a combination of standing in the deeper sections of the river and kneeling through the lower rapid sections. I love how easy it is to remove the center fin. The river that we were on is currently very low. Some of the rapids were just a few inches deep in places. After removing my center fin, I lost a great deal of tracking, but had no problem with any of the rapids. I rubbed the bottom a few times, but it did no damage, as it was smooth river rock. It handled great in the rapids without the center fin, and so much fun... My girlfriend had to get out and walk several times. She has a cheap soft top with a screw in fin. Yesterday, she admitted that she had just a little bit of board envy, and commented on what a great decision I had made. She also loves the cargo bungie straps on my board. Hers are way more flimsy and just feel cheap. Comparing my board to hers, it is astonishing how much better the quality is in all aspects with my board, and she agrees. She is thinking about upgrading soon to a good inflatable.



I could not be happier with my purchase. I love that Tower allows for Affirm payment plans as well. I am setting aside $27.00 from each check to make my payments. I did not get the package deal, as I am currently borrowing a paddle from my brother until I decide on which 3 piece paddle to get. I am strongly leaning towards the Isle carbon fiber traveller (Sorry Tower), as my budget is under $200 for the paddle. I am confident that my Tower Chris Craft will serve me well for years to come. The way I see it, I could have gotten a cheap SUP with a cheap paddle and had them wear out or become dissatisfied within a year or 2. In the end, after upgrading to a better board and paddle, I would have spent significantly more money. For me, it is a no brainer.



I love this SUP. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great quality SUP and is on a limited budget.

Exceeds expectations

Board was backordered, but Tower’s staff kept me informed on shipping date (cust. Service was great)! I’ve had this board out twice now & im very impressed with rigidity & glide (performance). Never expected much out of an inflatable, but the look, feel & performance of the Adventurer2 is impressive! The convenience of an inflatable and the apparent durability makes it worth the comparatively low price. Well done!
