The Stand Up Paddle Board – 11 Foot Inflatable Atoll Review

With weary legs and heavy arms you paddle your way to shore. You’ve enjoyed every second of your stand up paddle board session, but it’s time to get out of the water and head home. Back on shore, you lay your Cruiser Deluxe paddle board down and release a valve. You help speed the process of deflation by standing on top of thick walls that make up the lining of the board. After all the air has escaped, you neatly fold the board. It fits nicely inside its custom backpack, which you zip shut and begin the half mile walk back to your car. This is what the Atoll Cruiser Deluxe is made for!

Pros

Paddle boards are made for physical activity, and the Atoll Cruiser Deluxe gives you exactly that. The board is manufactured at top quality, goes through a quality control  process, and comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty. The features of the board along with its accessories are all top industry rated. It inflatable quality makes it compact for travel, and the backpack provided let’s you go further from your car or beach house!

Cons

While the backpacking feature may be a pro for many users, it could also be a deterrent for those with back trouble. Hiking with over 40 pounds of weight might not be an option. The board is also inflatable which means it can be punctured. Though Atoll has provided a strong material, it’s never foolproof. A strong swimming ability is recommended for those that use any kind of watercraft.

Final Verdict

The value offered in Atoll’s flagship stand up paddle board is second to none for those that prefer the inflatable versions. It’s definitely worth the purchase for those that haven’t used an inflatable SUP before, and we know you’ll be surprised at how stable it is. The pricing is competitive with similar products on the market, but the build offers the value and the reason it comes with our recommendation!
