iRocker Paddle Boards

The company that shook the Stand Up Paddling world to its foundations in only a few years time: iRocker

iRocker SUP is a company where many a company can take an example. Although I can’t find out exactly how long they have been active, their site didn’t become active until 2016. iRocker has grown from a small boy to one of the biggest players worldwide in just a few years. By now, they themselves claim to sell the most stand-up paddle boards worldwide.

Not long ago they made the migration to Europe, with a German, Italian and Spanish website. By now you can also order these boards anywhere.

Who is iRocker?

iRocker is a company that has two other brands under its wings besides iRocker.

Nautical is the brand with which they appeal to beginners. This brand has an interesting price (about $350) and wants to introduce people to the brand in an accessible way.

iRocker SUP then has paddle boards of about $700. A step higher but with this you make a leap when it comes to quality. The paddle boards from iRocker are extremely popular and score almost the full 5 stars on Amazon (read my full review of the iRocker All-Around here).

Finally, the brand has the Blackfin SUP, the showpiece of iRocker. A more expensive paddle board that starts at (about) $850. (You can find my review of the most popular Blackfin board, the Model X, right here)

iRocker All-around 10′

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ | Read all reviews
The iRocker All Around 10 scores 4.8 stars on Amazon based on 351 ratings.

This board is suitable for all conditions in the water (although fast, very wild water is slightly less recommended by me). Because the board has a length of 10′, iRocker recommends to buy it if you are smaller than 5’8″. Are you taller? Then go for the All Around 11′.

  • A lot of stability despite its length, partially thanks to its 3 fins.
  • The included accessories are the best you can get!
  • Made of particularly good and sturdy material.
  • 20 D-rings so you can take anything with you on the water.
  • Maximum carrying weight of 170 kg / 375 lbs.

iRocker All-around Ultra 11′

Are you looking for a paddleboard that you can fly with or take on a hike with? You could also consider the iRocker All-Around 11′ Ultra! This is a stable paddleboard that is great for beginners while also having a lot of speed. This is a multi-purpose paddleboard that is ideal for touring.

The board is stiff and only weighs 21.4 lbs. It will meet your needs in terms of convenience because it is easy to fold and has improved portability while maintaining a high-quality construction.

The iRocker All-Around 11′ Ultra comes with an electric SUP pump for easy inflation for paddlers. This SUP board has less stability than the iRocker All-Around, but the iRocker All-Around Ultra will give you more speed.

iRocker All-around 11′

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ | Read all reviews
The iRocker All Around 11 scores 4.8 stars on Amazon based on 351 ratings.

The All-Around 11′ is 1′ longer than its smaller brother above. Because of its length it lies a lot more stable in the water. Although you can glide through the water a little faster with the 10′, the 11′ is really for the beginner.

Would you like to go paddleboarding with more than one person and have enough space? Would you like to use a stand up paddle board to do yoga/fitness exercises as well, then the 11′ is a much better choice.

The iRocker All-around 11′ is truly a fantastic inflatable board with perhaps the best (free) accessories we’ve ever seen as standard. Highly recommended!

Pro’s

  • Where should I start? This board is a great all-round board
  • Maybe the best free included accessories available!
  • Made of particularly good and sturdy material (triple layer PVC – in contrast to many Dual layers of e.g. Aqua Marina).
  • 20 D-rings so you can take anything with you on the water.
  • Maximum carrying weight of 168 kg / 370 lbs. Insane.
  • Possibility to attach one (or even two) seat(s) (not included in the package).

Cons

  • Less fast than the 10′ variant.

The iRocker 11′ is available in 6 colors:

iRocker-All-Around-11-Aqua
iRocker-All-Around-11-Orange
iRocker-All-Around-11-Gray
iRocker-All-Around-11-Blue
iRocker-All-Around-11-Teal
iRocker-All-Around-11-White



iRocker Cruiser 10’6″

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ | Read all reviews
The iRocker Cruiser 10’6″ scores 4.8 stars on Amazon based on 214 ratings (at time of writing).

The iRocker Cruiser is especially suitable for – you don’t guess – cruising. The board itself is slightly wider than the other boards and also has a wider tail. This makes the board very suitable to explore the area at a leisurely pace, to go fishing or to practice yoga/fitness.

Because of its width it is also a perfect board for paddleboarding with several people. With a maximum weight of 180 kg/397 lbs you can easily take someone with you on your board.

The iRocker Cruiser also comes with fantastic accessories. A carbon shaft paddle, a dual chamber pump (which goes 2x as fast), 3 fins and so on. You won’t regret this!

Pro’s

  • Lovely board for the recreational user
  • Maybe the best free included accessories available!
  • Extra wide tail for more comfort
  • Made of particularly good and sturdy material.
  • 20 D-rings so you can take anything with you on the water.
  • Possibility to attach one (or even two) seat(s) (not included in the package).

Cons

  • Less fast than the other boards from iRocker

The iRocker Cruiser is available in 7 colors:

iRocker-Cruiser-Pink
iRocker-Cruiser-Aqua
iRocker-Cruiser-White
iRocker-Cruiser-Teal
iRocker-Cruiser-Blue

iRocker Cruiser Ultra 10’6″

The iRocker has a new iRocker Cruiser ULTRA version that enhances your paddling experience! The iRocker cruiser ultra is more expensive than the previous version of the iRocker cruiser. But there’s a reason for that, especially given the improved performance and features over the previous version.

The iRocker Cruiser Ultra is ideal for multiple riders and as a paddleboard for transporting additional cargo. This simply means that it can support more weight. SUP yogis and families will love this paddleboard. You can use this SUP board with your children or dogs! Let’s learn more about this iRocker Cruiser Ultra and how it performs!

Pro’s

  • Innovative woven drop-stitching is used.
  • In comparison to the previous version, it is lighter.
  • When deflated, it is simple to fold.

iRocker Sport 11′ x 31″

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ | Read all reviews
The iRocker Sport 11’31” scores 4.5 stars on Amazon based on 44 reviews (at time of writing).

Do you like adventure and want a little more speed on the water? Then choose the iRocker Sport. This board is more suitable for the more sporty user, the beginner who can paddle board easily, or the (semi) advanced athlete.

The board is about 31″ wide, so you can go pretty fast without losing stability. iRocker claims to have produced one of the fastest inflatable boards with this model. To be honest, I’m not very sure about that, but there’s no doubt that this is a great board as well.

Pro’s

  • Super fast board
  • Maybe the best free included accessories available!
  • Only 31″ wide but still nice and stable
  • Made of particularly good and sturdy material.

Cons

  • Still not as fast as racing boards

The iRocker Sport is available in 3 colours:

iRocker-Sport-Blue
iRocker-Sport-Teal
iRocker-Sport-Gray

Price (last time I checked): $695.99



The difference between iRocker SUP, Nautical and Blackfin

It is quite confusing that the company ‘iRocker’ besides iRocker SUP also has the brands Nautical and Blackfin. In this sheet I would like to show you which brand to choose.

In (very) short:
➡️Nautical is the entry-level model. This model is cheaper, has a dual-layer construction and less good specifications. Boards cost around $550.

➡️ iRocker SUP is for the general public. It has a triple-layer construction and skyrockets in performance and specifications. Boards cost between $650 and $750.

➡️ Blackfin is the top of the bill, the showpiece. Most luxurious product for people who really want to get the most out of their SUP-adventure. Boards cost between $850 and $1150.

The Best Paddle Board of the Year

One response to “iRocker Paddle Boards”

  1. I bought two iRocker boards about four years ago and they were fantastic. They’re still usable, but I decided it was time to upgrade for better performance.

    I stuck with the same company and bought two BlackFin Model Vs. Initially, I was very pleased with the boards, as they performed well and did all that I wanted from a touring-type board.

    Unfortunately, within a few months, one has basically fallen apart and the other has been recalled because of quality control issues.

    It’s taken weeks to get a response from iRocker, and while they sent one board as a replacement, it is not the same model, and not the type of board I want. I bought the model V specifically because of it’s shape, dimensions, etc, and the replacement board doesn’t match those criteria. However, it was the only replacement offered, so it was that or nothing.

    The board being recalled will be replaced by BlackFin eventually, but they say this could take six months. That’s a long time to go without when I’ve already paid for the boards so should be able to use them.

    Communication with customer services is incredibly slow, and at no point has anyone actually bothered to explain or apologise for either the poor quality of the boards or the lack of effective customer support.

    Frankly, both product quality and customer service has taken a HUGE nosedive since I first bought boards from iRocker, and I won’t be buying from them again.

    iRocker sell themselves as being the premier paddle board company, but that’s a very empty statement. I’d seek out one of the other well-known boarding companies if you are thinking of buying an SUP, and paddle well clear of iRocker
