PEAK iSUP Description

The Board

The PEAK inflatable stand up paddle board package comes with a paddle board, 3-piece paddle, hand pump, and carrying backpack. This paddle board is, as most boards are these days, made from military grade PVC and drop stitch construction providing superior durability and strength.

When fully inflated, this paddle board measures measures 10′ 6″ long x 31′ wide x 6′ thick. As a result, you get 225 liters of buoyancy providing a very sturdy foundation for you to paddle from. This paddle board is perfect for everyone from the every day, recreational paddler to the SUP enthusiast who might enjoy yoga or fishing. When deflated this board is one of the lightest on the market – only 26 pounds! – and fits nicely inside the provided carrying backpack.

What makes this paddle board really stand out from the rest of the pack is the available color options. While most paddle boards on the market are only available in a single color, the PEAK iSUP is available in four (pictured above); white, aqua, red, and blue. This really lets you define your SUP style and overall paddling experience.

Accessories

As part of this package, customers will also get a paddle, a hand pump, and a carrying packpack.

The paddle is a 3-piece aluminum paddle. It’s length can be adjusted from 65″ to 86″ to fit the paddlers needs, a huge plus when this iSUP and paddle with friends or family. Another great thing about this paddle is that it floats making it easy to recover if you fall. Other paddles might sink making it difficult to find, especially if you’re out in deep water!

While some users have said it’s a bit heavy for their liking, we’ve found it to be on par with paddles that come with the majority of the iSUP packages on the market.

hand pump is provided allowing you to quickly inflate your paddle board. Pumping to the desired 15 PSI normally takes about 5-10 minutes, depending on how fast you pump. One thing we should note: the needle on the pump does not move until the pressure is about 8 PSI. Some customers have reported “defective” pumps after not seeing the pressure needle move after only a few pumps.

Customers will really enjoy the carrying backpack (pictured right). It’s large enough to carry both the disassembled paddle, pump, and deflated board and light enough (the paddle baord only weights 26 lbs!) to make traveling a breeze.  The straps are really extra-large and padded making it really comfortable to cary. There are even side pockets where you can carry small like your phone, wallet, or water bottle.

Things to Consider

There aren’t to many drawbacks when it comes to this PEAK iSUP. However, one thing to consider is the fact that the paddle board only comes with one fin. Similar boards in it’s class come with three fins, or at the very least, provide the extra two fin boxes without the fins. The PEAK paddle boards only offers a single fin which, depending on your paddling style, strength, and water conditions, could impact stability.

Other issues reported by users include the board being difficult to inflate and busted/leaky seams. However, these are typical issues which plague all inflatable paddle boards across the industry and they really shouldn’t impact your decision.
