Mermaid iSUP Board Only - 10'4"

3 review(s)

Tower's Mermaid iSUP is a beautiful turquoise and white version of our popular Adventurer 2.

Better looking, plus smarter design... and at an almost unbelievable price because we sell it direct! Tower's turquoise version of our "Adventurer 2" is the sequel to one of the most popular inflatable paddle boards worldwide (the Tower Adventurer). It's a little longer so it floats a little more weight and goes a little faster. It also adds an extra handle on the nose and tail for easy carrying, as well as a cargo net upfront for securing a load while paddling.

2-Year Warranty on iSUPs (does not apply to included accessories)

Note: This is the board only. Does NOT include a pump or paddle.

Description



Introducing the Tower Mermaid Inflatable SUP

Includes a 10'4" by 32" by 6" inflatable SUP, a high-end Tower branded diamond grooved deck pad, a 2+1 fin configuration with a removable 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.

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 Tower Mermaid 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 Tower Mermaid Inflatable SUP apart from the competition.

Amazing Rigidity

The Tower Mermaid 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 Tower Mermaid 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" Mermaid iSUP 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 Tower Mermaid, an inflatable SUP is now also a viable EPS/Epoxy board alternative for anyone who isn't a die-hard surfer.

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.
  • Less expensive - Which also makes it a great idea as a second board for travel or guests.



Warning - Beware of cheap inflatable SUP packages

Be weary of newer boards made with the fused process. While they may be lighter, they lose rigidity and durability in this newer construction process and are much lower quality boards overall.

The Tower Mermaid Inflatable SUP is amazingly priced because we sell it direct. It's a high-end, well designed, and well considered inflatable SUP, but at a direct to market price. Just because it is priced about the same, please don't confuse it with many of the cheap inflatable SUP packages on the market, which are characterized by many issues including:

  • Poorly designed detachable fins that frequently fall off during use.C
  • Cheap bags that are "bundled in", yet you'll never use. A simple strap works fine.
  • A seriously annoying sagging issue which leads to wet feet.
  • Cheapest available, uncomfortable traction pads.
  • At 4" thick, not suitable floatation-wise for heavier paddlers.
  • Questionably designed inflation pumps that come apart.
  • Pressure gauges that are not integrated into the pump, so you have to pump, detach, check inflation, pump, detach, check, etc.
  • Lack of a surf leash attachment or towing attachment.

Having SUP-ed on a Tower inflatable board, I am now ruined for all other boards. The Mermaid 10’4” is a perfect size for cruising the lake. It’s strong, durable, easy to carry for one person and feels amazing under your feet on the water. It feels so stable and I love that it’s 6” thick compared to most inflatables being 4” (which makes them feel less stable). It glides effortlessly through the water. My significant other and I fight over who gets to use the board... It makes me want to ditch my other hard board and get another inflatable. Great price, great product. Helpful hint- buy the complete package with pump and paddle. Very hard to find inflatable pumps that work on SUPs... I ended up purchasing the pump from Tower separately anyway when I realized the electric pump I had wouldn’t work.

Do not buy this board

This board is not stable. I took it out for the first time and it seems that the board is coming up out of the water at the nose end. I used to have a bote there is no comparison. I would spend the extra money and get a better quality board. I am also 5'2 and 109 lbs plus very athletic so there should be no reason for me not to use the board, but the stability is lacking for sure. When blowing it up I purchased the electric pump. The pump sounds like it is going to blow up at the end of inflating the board, I am fearful my board will pop so it seems it is not fully inflated. Again you get what you paid for. This would be a great board for a small child as a beginner board. If your an adult and fairly athletic don't buy this board.

So much fun!
