Reviews for 14' Racing / Touring Xplorer S by Tower Paddle Boards
Submitted by: John on 2014-11-12
Summary: Great board for cruising on big lakes
Pros: Board performs great on the water. It is consistently faster and much more stable than the 10' inflatable I own. And the 8" thickness keeps your feet up and out of the water which is really nice on cold days.
Cons: This board is much heavier and takes up significantly more space than a 10 footer. This makes it a lot harder to get in and out of the car. It also takes about 50% longer to inflate versus a 10 footer. As you might expect, it's more difficult to turn this board in a tight space.
Usage: I use this board for exercise and touring on flat water (lakes and slow moving rivers).

Summary: I love the quality and roughness in this board, we can be 2 or 3 in the boardddd it is awesome, the only thing is that you need to screw the fin each time and is easy to loose it It would be better to only clip the fin
Pros: Stable, rough and cheap
Cons: The fin not practical at all
Usage: Exercise and touring

Summary: This is a great board, we just got it in December, and have taken it to the lake a couple of times, its fun for the whole family.
Pros: Because it is inflatable, it is easy to transport. I takes about 10 minutes to pump up with the included pump. Its big enough for me and my 10 year old son to comfortable ride on. It is much more durable tha tyou think it would be, once it is inflated, it is very solid.
Cons: I have used regular paddle boads in the past and the inflatable takes a little getting used to, seems more shaky than traditionl board.
Usage: Use it on lakes for touring and exercise. May try a little fishing, but just leisurly touring now.
