A Great SUP board for Fun Activities!

ISLE Outpost 2.0 is an update to Glide’s ISLE Outpost paddleboard. This is a hard paddleboard made of indestructible materials because the materials used are molded with high-quality materials such as polycarbonate and layers that will withstand abuse in the water. Because it has slightly more volume, this board is best suited for large riders.

Because of its stability, this SUP board can also be used for yoga or fishing. This ISLE Outpost paddleboard will help you hone your skills and is suitable for use with a pet. Because of its wide board, which supports multiple passengers, I can tell that this SUP board is also great for families to do various activities.

If you’re interested in the ISLE Outpost Paddleboard 2.0, you should read on to learn more about what this paddleboard has to offer paddlers.

What is the difference between ISLE Outpost 2.0 and the previous version of ISLE Outpost? In terms of the board’s specifications, nothing has changed.

It has the same dimensions, volume, weight, and maximum capacity as the original. The most noticeable difference is the price, as the 2.0 is more expensive than the previous version. Another difference is that the ISLE Outpost Paddleboard 2.0 comes in four different colors, whereas the original only comes in one.

The construction of the paddleboard has changed significantly from the previous version. The ISLE Outpost Paddleboard 2.0 has been updated with a unique outer shell and reinforced rails, making it the ideal board for repeated use by families or SUP rental companies. If you look at the features, they are the same as in the previous version. In terms of performance? It’s the same thing! With that said, I’ll leave that decision to you!

What Makes This ISLE Outpost Paddleboard 2.0 Standout

When compared to the previous version, the ISLE Outpost Paddleboard 2.0 stands out in terms of construction. As previously stated, they claim that it is their most durable SUP board yet because it is designed to withstand long-term wear and tear.

They created this SUP board with a one-of-a-kind outer shell. What I liked about this hardboard is that it can be used for a variety of activities such as yoga, fishing, and touring.

The maneuverability and stability of this paddleboard are excellent. If you’re looking for a long-term paddleboard, the ISLE Outpost Paddleboard 2.0 is an excellent choice. Because of the weight capacity of 265 lbs, this is best suited for large riders and can accommodate multiple people at the same time.

Speed on the water
Although it is not the fastest SUP board on ISLE, it does the job. This ISLE Outpost paddleboard is a great SUP board for touring because it is easy to maneuver and has great tracking and fast turns while also providing great balance. Can be used for surfing, but don’t expect too much speed from this SUP board.

Transport
When compared to an inflatable paddleboard, the ISLE Outpost paddleboard is hardboard that may be difficult to transport. This paddleboard does not include a day bag, which is a disadvantage because you must pay an additional dollar for it. The carbon fiber center fin, on the other hand, is removable for easy transport and storage.

ISLE Outpost Paddleboard Review 4

Stability
The ISLE Outpost paddleboard is extremely stable. This paddleboard allows you to do Yoga and can accommodate multiple passengers. This is a versatile SUP board that is ideal for a wide range of SUP activities.

Professional’s Experience

ISLE Outpost Paddleboard
ISLE Outpost Paddleboard

Because of the new updated high-quality materials used, the ISLE Outpost paddleboard is an All-Around hardboard that is indestructible! It has 4 color options a the same time compared to the old version of the ISLE Outpost Paddleboard.

This paddle board is ideal for both beginner and advanced paddlers looking to explore and hone their paddling skills. I’ve done a variety of activities on this paddleboard because it’s so stable and maneuverable.

It was simple for me to play on the SUP board because it is so comfortable to use while out on the water. If you’re looking for a paddleboard to spend time on with family, friends, or pets, this is the paddleboard for you!

If you’re looking for a SUP board that will provide you with a stable ride in any water condition, this is a great option!

Because of the ISLE Outpost Paddleboard’s versatility, you can use it for leisure, yoga, fishing, and paddleboarding! What I don’t like about this paddle board is that it lacks practical accessories such as a storage bag.

Given how expensive this SUP board is, this should be included in the package in some way!

However, in terms of features and performance, while out on the water, I was impressed with the stability and maneuverability. This is not the fastest SUP board, but it can still be used for surfing with little expectation of speed. Because this is a hard SUP board, you will save time inflating and deflating it. Isle, on the other hand, offers additional accessories for sale on its website. I’m glad I got to try it out, and I’m not surprised by how well it performed on the water.

The ISLE Outpost paddleboard has a wide EVA Traction pad platform that provides a comfortable surface for the rider and passenger while out on the water.

It has a 6-point bungee system, allows you to easily attach accessories, and is expandable. You can also bring a SUP Cooler Bag to store your drinks while having fun in the sun.

It has patented Lifts Up handles for carrying your paddleboard safely and comfortably. This will ensure that you have no trouble transporting your paddleboard.

The ISLE Outpost paddleboard has nylon touring center fin with a high profile for improved flat-water stability and tracking. The carbon fiber center fin, on the other hand, is easily removable for transportation and storage.

Accessories? I’m disappointed that some accessories are not included in the package. Paying another extra dollar for the additional accessories is too much since the ISLE Outpost paddleboard is already expensive. Isle hard boards have a one-year warranty and a 60-day money-back guarantee.

The ISLE Outpost Paddleboard comes with an 8′ coiled leash that will keep you close to your paddleboard if you get caught or fall in the water. The coiled leash has no slack, so the board doesn’t get tangled in it and stays close to your body.

Fin

It has a Nylon Touring Center fin, which makes your paddleboarding experience stable and easy to track on flat water.

Additional Accessories

Life Jacket

This is a must-have accessory, especially if there will be children or pets on the paddleboard. You can’t just put on any old life jacket and call it good when paddle boarding. You need a properly-fitting personal flotation device (PFD) that is comfortable and won’t get in your way while paddling. While there are many different types and styles of PFDs on the market, here are a few things to consider when choosing the right one for you.

Consider the type of paddle boarding you’ll be doing most often. If you are doing primarily flatwater paddling, you’ll want a different PFD than if you’re planning on tackling some whitewater rapids. Comfort is vital. You don’t want to constantly adjust and readjust your PFD while you’re out on the water, so make sure it fits well and doesn’t chafe or rub in any uncomfortable ways.

Because the Komodo SUP has so many activities to offer, it’s best to invest in a high-quality and comfortable life jacket to keep the passengers safe. Keep in mind that you must ensure everyone’s safety. With more options to choose from, an infant life jacket and a dog life jacket are available.

Waterproof Fanny Pack

If you’re planning on hitting the waves for a day of paddle boarding, you’ll want to make sure you have all the gear you need to stay safe and comfortable. One essential item is a waterproof fanny pack. This will help keep your valuables safe and dry as you enjoy your time on the water. There are a few things to consider when choosing a waterproof fanny pack.

First, think about what size you need. A smaller bag will be fine if you’re only bringing a few small items with you. But if you’re carrying things like sunscreen, snacks, and extra clothes, you’ll need something more significant.

Kayak Conversion Kit/Seat Cushion

Because the Gili Komodo SUP is also a great fishing paddleboard, you might want to consider adding a kayak seat to make your experience more comfortable and enjoyable, especially if you have a passenger.

Water Proof Speakers

A waterproof speaker will enhance your paddling experience on the water. While you’re doing your activity, listen to your favorite song! When paddling, good music will lighten the mood; you can even dance while on the water on this paddleboard because it is guaranteed to be stable! Invest in a high-quality, waterproof sticker that you will be able to use for a long time.

Hard/Soft Coolers

The Gili paddleboard has two storage areas on the front and back, allowing you to add either a hard or soft cooler. Bring your favorite drink out on the water with you! It’s so much easier to stay hydrated when you have a SUP Cooler with you! This is also recommended for paddlers who will be out on the water for several hours!

Paddle board lock

While paddle boarding is a relatively new sport, its popularity has exploded in recent years. With that increase in popularity, there has also been an increase in people looking for ways to protect their investments.

A paddleboard lock is one of the best ways to do that. There are a few different types of paddleboard locks on the market, but they all serve the same purpose – to keep your board safe from theft. The most important thing to look for in a lock is something that will be difficult for thieves to cut through or break.


Difference between an Inflatable board and a Hard board

Advantages Inflatable board

  • Easy to take on holiday (even on the plane)
  • Easy to store in the winter days
  • Much cheaper
  • Technology has improved greatly over the past 10 years. For this reason, these boards are now almost hard to distinguish from hard boards

Advantages Hardboard

  • More speed, which is important if you are a professional
  • Easier to make sharp turns on the water because the board is thinner
  • No inflation needed, you can get on the water right away

Conclusion | Final Thoughts

The ISLE Outpost Paddleboard 2.0 is a fantastic versatile paddleboard that I highly recommend, especially if you want a hard board that you can use with your family and friends. This SUP board is extremely stable and maneuverable. You will never have to worry about this board getting damaged. After all, it is very durable in any water condition because it is made with updated high-quality materials.

If I had to say something, I hope Glide adds more included accessories to their package because it is already an expensive board. Any additional accessories that should be required when paddling would be prohibitively expensive.

However, I am impressed with how well it performed on the water and how enjoyable it was to participate in activities with my family. Because of its excellent stability, this paddleboard can accommodate multiple passengers and is suitable for both children and pets.

If you enjoy yoga and fishing, you should think about getting this SUP! Unlike the previous version, it has four color options available at the same time. If you want a fun paddleboard with great stability that can be used for multiple activities, I recommend the ISLE Outpost paddleboard.
