PEAK Inflatable Paddle Board Review

The Peak inflatable paddle board from ISLE Surf & Sup is a great all around paddle board, suitable for all levels of competence and for varying conditions. The 10’6” x 31” x 6” board gives a good stable base for paddle boarding, while the military grade PVC offers great durability. It deflates and packs down as small as a sleeping bag for easy storage and transportation.

Features of the Peak inflatable paddle board

The Peak inflatable stand up paddle board is a well-constructed board, made from military grade PVC and put together with drop-stitch technology. This makes this SUP virtually indestructible so you don’t need to worry about bashing or scraping it.

At 10’6 in length and 31” wide it has a large surface area, making it a stable steady board that is easy to balance on and ideal for beginners. At 6” thick, this board is solid and rigid – you won’t notice much difference between this Peak inflatable SUP and a solid board.

The most impressive feature of the Peak paddle board is that its capacity is large at 300lb, and yet the board weighs just 23lb (when most other inflatable paddle boards weigh upwards of 25lb). This makes it a great choice for travel and also for anyone who will be carrying their board for longer distances.

The large capacity of this Peak inflatable SUP also makes this a good choice if you are looking for a board for taking passengers – kids or dogs, and the large surface area also makes this easy. It would also be a good option for a yoga SUP.

The Peak SUP features 2 carry handles – one in the centre of the board and one at the nose – and also has a bungee storage system on the front. There is a tail-mounted D-ring for attaching a leash. The diamond-groove design of the non-slip deck pad gives good traction in wet conditions and it also makes this a comfortable board underfoot.

We love the stylish design of this Peak iSUP; it is one of the nicest looking boards we have come across and it also comes in a choice of four colours: red, white, blue and aqua.

The Peak inflatable paddle board comes with everything you need to get you paddling: paddle, back pack carry bag, ankle leash, pump with integrated pressure gauge and removable fin.

Our main criticism is the included paddle – this aluminium paddle is quite heavy and you may want to consider upgrading to a lighter-weight model. See our recommendations below.

  • Virtually indestructible
  • Ultra light at just 23lb for easy carrying

Recommended Accessories

Electric Pump

The Peak inflatable paddle board comes with most accessories you need to get you started. However, if you plan on using your SUP frequently, you might want to invest in an electric pump to save your arms getting too tired before you’ve even started paddling. We particularly like the Sevylor 12 Volt 15 PSI SUP and Water Sport Pump. Its digital display allows you to select the correct pressure. The pump will pump to the preselected pressure and then shut off, making it super easy.

SUP Paddle

The paddle that comes with the Isle Peak SUP is quite heavy and you might want to invest in a lighter one. We recommend a carbon fiber paddle, and particularly love the 3-piece adjustable paddle from Super Paddles. It is super easy to put together and take apart and is adjustable from 72 to 86 inches. Most importantly it is super light at just 2.8 pounds, and is strong and durable.
