ISLE Paddle Boards

ISLE Surf and SUP is a big brand from the USA, active since 2004 and very focused on improving both inflatable paddle boards and epoxy paddle boards. Their current collection consists of 4 inflatable paddle boards and 6 hardboards. ISLE has a lot of knowledge about paddle boards and also offers a lot of buying guides and information about this.

Instead of making a huge collection of boards where a lot of boards overlap and have almost the same specs, they only focus on 10 core boards that have clear distinctions in between them. A lot better to get a clear overview and to make a choice between boards.

All their inflatable paddle boards are very popular, as for the hardboards mostly the ISLE Versa and Cruiser are searched and bought, mostly because these are the most all-around board in the hardboard collection.

An overview of the 2021 collection of ISLE SUP paddle boards below:

Board thickness: 8″ – 20.3 cm
Board volume: 584L / 730L
Board weight: 34 LBS / 50 LBS – 15.4 kg / 22.7 kg
Max. capacity: 650 LBS / 1050 LBS – 294.8 kg / 476.3 kg
Color: White / Blue

The ISLE Megalodon has already been mentioned in my “Best Giant Paddle Boards” guide and offers fun for your family or a whole group of friends, depending on the size. One of the best boards for multiple persons on the market, but the availability isn’t very good so you have to be lucky!

ISLE-Pioneer

ISLE Pioneer 10’6
Board length: 10’6 / 320 cm
Board width: 34″ / 86.3 cm
Board thickness: 6″ / 15.2 cm
Board volume: 326L
Board weight: 24 LBS / 10.89 kg
Max. capacity: 285 LBS / 129.3 kg
Color: White / Blue

The ISLE Pioneer 10’6 is a great inflatable Stand Up Paddle board for beginners and the most sold board in the ISLE collection. The extra wide platform offers a lot of stability so it is a lot easier to stay stable on the board. Less speed because of this, so not so interesting for advanced paddle boarders.

Board length: 11′ / 335 cm
Board width: 33″ / 83.8 cm
Board thickness: 6″ / 15.2 cm
Board volume: 345L
Board weight: 21 LBS / 9.5 kg
Max. capacity: 315 LBS / 142.9 kg
Color: White / Blue

The ISLE Scout 11′ is the best board in the collection for SUP Yoga. The platform offers a lot of space and the extra width gives it a high stability to perform even the most difficult Yoga poses. Because of the quite high carrying capacity you should also be able to go out on the water together on this board.

ISLE Rigid Paddle Boards

ISLE-Classic-Surf

Max. capacity: 185 LBS / 200 LBS – 83.9 kg / 90.7 kg
Color: White / Blue

The ISLE Classic Surf is clearly a hardboard meant for catching waves and riding along with them. Because of the smaller size it is more agile and you can make quicker turns when needed. For a surfing board it is quite wide, giving it more stability. Still recommended for advanced paddlers only.

ISLE-Cruiser

ISLE Cruiser 10’5
Board length: 10’5 / 317.5 cm
Board width: 32″ / 81.3 cm

Color: Orange / Blue / White

The ISLE Cruiser 10’5 is most popular together with the Versa and offers an all-around experience. An epoxy board with a soft outer layer for extra comfort and good grip. Perfect for beginners that don’t want to purchase an inflatable board but still want to conquer the waters on a stable board.

Board volume: 181L
Board weight: 25 LBS / 11.34 kg
Max. capacity: 245 LBS / 111.13 kg
Color: Orange / Blue / White

The ISLE Glider 10’10 is made out of a combination of epoxy and veneer, as you can see in the amazing wooden look. This gives the board a very good glide, so every stroke last for a longer time and you need to paddle less hard. Very suitable for reaching higher speeds on calm waters, but also can be used for catching waves.

ISLE-Outpost

Board width:
32″ / 81.3 cm

The ISLE Outpost is a very durable board that will last you a long time. With the special layer of thermomolded polycarbonate this board is almost indestructible and is therefor very suitable for daily use through rental companies. Good stability and glide for beginners.

The ISLE Voyager is the best hardboard for touring that is available.
