Perfect for families who want to paddle on the same board together, or if you want to enhance your adventure by bringing a cooler and some fishing rods.

The Perfect Balance

As you may have guessed, the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board is intentional. Through experience and testing, we wanted to produce the best inflatable paddle board for your adventures. With Atoll you are receiving an inflatable paddle board that is fantastic for flat-water lakes, durable enough for those rocky river paddlers (do not take a hardboard on a river paddle unless you want to pay for multiple crack repairs!), and thick enough to float you, your children, or a full cooler for a fun time on the water.  Our only caveat- we don’t recommend the 11’ inflatable paddle board for surfing, especially in bigger waves. While it is fantastic for ocean paddling, the Atoll inflatable board, and for that matter, any inflatable SUP is not the ideal board for catching some tasty waves.  Due to the thickness and flexibility, the rails on an inflatable are not designed to carve down the line of a wave. If you want to surf successfully, we recommend grabbing a hardboard for your quest. However, if you are curious about giving it a shot with your Atoll inflatable paddle board, we will still applaud your adventurous spirit!

Conclusion

We hope to have answered all of your questions regarding the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board. As we said, we aimed to create the perfect adventure vehicle for your exploration into the water areas of our world.  And with our design, you are truly receiving the best shape and size of any inflatable paddle board on the market for this goal. And truly, the only one you will ever need to fuel your quests. Of course, if you still have some additional inquiries you can contact us directly HERE. We will gladly answer any inflatable paddle board related questions to get you on the water and having fun.  They provide the best paddling experience in flat water and rivers, especially when going distance.

Size

The size of an inflatable paddle board, meaning length, width, and thickness is also important when constructing the best adventure vehicle.  After testing, we decided on 11’x32’’x6’’. That is eleven feet in length, thirty-two inches in width, and six inches in thickness.  Starting with the length, an 11’ inflatable paddle board provides better tracking and glide. Tracking on a SUP is described as how many times you can paddle on one side of the board while still remaining straight. On shorter lengths, the board tends to bob from one side to the other. This causes paddlers to switch hands more frequently and slow overall paddling progress. With a longer board, tracking is enhanced. Paddlers can paddle on one side longer and the glide for each stroke is exceptional. A longer board will equal longer glides and increased paddling efficiency.  At thirty-two inches wide, the Atoll board provides the perfect compromise between stability and glide. Just as a shorter board will increase the need to paddle, a wider board is also slower, given the increase in surface tension. At thirty-two inches, paddlers are able to easily stand on the deck and paddle while maintaining their balance and achieve maximum paddling pleasure.  And for the big guys out there who haven’t had much success finding a board that will float them, our Atoll inflatable paddle boards are 6’’ thick!

Which may work great for leisurely paddles but not for adventurous explorations into the unknown.  Think of it this way, the more resistance, the more difficult the paddle will be.  There is a reason why race boards and touring boards are designed the way they are… They provide the best paddling experience in flat water and rivers, especially when going distance.

Size

The size of an inflatable paddle board, meaning length, width, and thickness is also important when constructing the best adventure vehicle.  After testing, we decided on 11’x32’’x6’’. That is eleven feet in length, thirty-two inches in width, and six inches in thickness.  Starting with the length, an 11’ inflatable paddle board provides better tracking and glide. Tracking on a SUP is described as how many times you can paddle on one side of the board while still remaining straight. On shorter lengths, the board tends to bob from one side to the other. This causes paddlers to switch hands more frequently and slow overall paddling progress. With a longer board, tracking is enhanced. Paddlers can paddle on one side longer and the glide for each stroke is exceptional. A longer board will equal longer glides and increased paddling efficiency.  At thirty-two inches wide, the Atoll board provides the perfect compromise between stability and glide. Just as a shorter board will increase the need to paddle, a wider board is also slower, given the increase in surface tension. At thirty-two inches, paddlers are able to easily stand on the deck and paddle while maintaining their balance and achieve maximum paddling pleasure.  And for the big guys out there who haven’t had much success finding a board that will float them, our Atoll inflatable paddle boards are 6’’ thick! This thickness provides exceptional float capabilities with a maximum paddler weight of up to 400 lbs and a maximum overall weight limit of 700 lbs! Perfect for families who want to paddle on the same board together, or if you want to enhance your adventure by bringing a cooler and some fishing rods.

The Perfect Balance

As you may have guessed, the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board is intentional. Through experience and testing, we wanted to produce the best inflatable paddle board for your adventures. With Atoll you are receiving an inflatable paddle board that is fantastic for flat-water lakes, durable enough for those rocky river paddlers (do not take a hardboard on a river paddle unless you want to pay for multiple crack repairs!), and thick enough to float you, your children, or a full cooler for a fun time on the water.  Our only caveat- we don’t recommend the 11’ inflatable paddle board for surfing, especially in bigger waves. While it is fantastic for ocean paddling, the Atoll inflatable board, and for that matter, any inflatable SUP is not the ideal board for catching some tasty waves.  Due to the thickness and flexibility, the rails on an inflatable are not designed to carve down the line of a wave. If you want to surf successfully, we recommend grabbing a hardboard for your quest. However, if you are curious about giving it a shot with your Atoll inflatable paddle board, we will still applaud your adventurous spirit!

Conclusion

We hope to have answered all of your questions regarding the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board. As we said, we aimed to create the perfect adventure vehicle for your exploration into the water areas of our world.  And with our design, you are truly receiving the best shape and size of any inflatable paddle board on the market for this goal. And truly, the only one you will ever need to fuel your quests. Of course, if you still have some additional inquiries you can contact us directly HERE. We will gladly answer any inflatable paddle board related questions to get you on the water and having fun.

Shape

When we started producing our inflatable paddle boards, we aimed to create the ultimate vehicle for adventure. And adventure requires a vehicle that will perform well in a multitude of waterways without sacrificing performance. This meant the board had to be easy to carry to locations unknown, maneuver in the water, and give the best paddling experience in all scenarios.  The generic 10’6’’ board with a rounded nose just wouldn’t do. Instead, the shape of the Atoll iSUP is more in tune with that of a touring board. The nose is pulled into a slight point with a straight edge on the tail.  This shape provides the best glide on flat water due to its overall length (Reminder: General Rule #2). And ease of maneuverability with less surface area in the nose. This shape also performs better than the generic shape in heavy headwinds and side winds as it tends to cut through the chop instead of being affected by it. With a pointed noise mimicking a touring paddle board, paddlers are able to achieve enhanced maneuverability when turning, longer glides, and less resistance in the nose when hitting those miles on the open water.  A conventional rounded nose often creates additional drag.

Most brands, especially those price point boards found at Costco, mimic each other to broaden their market reach. But the problem with them is – they’re not the best boards to paddle in any situation. Whether it be flat water, rivers, or oceans.  What they gain in mass appeal, they lose in performance.  And we should also say, the producers of these boards are not usually paddlers themselves. Instead, they see a market and advertise to it.  At Atoll, we’re the real deal.  We spend time on the water perfecting our products in order to bring you the best available iSUP or inflatable stand-up paddle board on the market.  And that is why we chose to produce a board that is 11’x32’’x6’’ constructed in a shape that will give you the best experience on the water.

Shape

When we started producing our inflatable paddle boards, we aimed to create the ultimate vehicle for adventure. And adventure requires a vehicle that will perform well in a multitude of waterways without sacrificing performance. This meant the board had to be easy to carry to locations unknown, maneuver in the water, and give the best paddling experience in all scenarios.  The generic 10’6’’ board with a rounded nose just wouldn’t do. Instead, the shape of the Atoll iSUP is more in tune with that of a touring board. The nose is pulled into a slight point with a straight edge on the tail.  This shape provides the best glide on flat water due to its overall length (Reminder: General Rule #2). And ease of maneuverability with less surface area in the nose. This shape also performs better than the generic shape in heavy headwinds and side winds as it tends to cut through the chop instead of being affected by it. With a pointed noise mimicking a touring paddle board, paddlers are able to achieve enhanced maneuverability when turning, longer glides, and less resistance in the nose when hitting those miles on the open water.  A conventional rounded nose often creates additional drag. Which may work great for leisurely paddles but not for adventurous explorations into the unknown.  Think of it this way, the more resistance, the more difficult the paddle will be.  There is a reason why race boards and touring boards are designed the way they are… They provide the best paddling experience in flat water and rivers, especially when going distance.

Size

The size of an inflatable paddle board, meaning length, width, and thickness is also important when constructing the best adventure vehicle.  After testing, we decided on 11’x32’’x6’’. That is eleven feet in length, thirty-two inches in width, and six inches in thickness.  Starting with the length, an 11’ inflatable paddle board provides better tracking and glide. Tracking on a SUP is described as how many times you can paddle on one side of the board while still remaining straight. On shorter lengths, the board tends to bob from one side to the other. This causes paddlers to switch hands more frequently and slow overall paddling progress. With a longer board, tracking is enhanced. Paddlers can paddle on one side longer and the glide for each stroke is exceptional. A longer board will equal longer glides and increased paddling efficiency.  At thirty-two inches wide, the Atoll board provides the perfect compromise between stability and glide. Just as a shorter board will increase the need to paddle, a wider board is also slower, given the increase in surface tension. At thirty-two inches, paddlers are able to easily stand on the deck and paddle while maintaining their balance and achieve maximum paddling pleasure.  And for the big guys out there who haven’t had much success finding a board that will float them, our Atoll inflatable paddle boards are 6’’ thick! This thickness provides exceptional float capabilities with a maximum paddler weight of up to 400 lbs and a maximum overall weight limit of 700 lbs! Perfect for families who want to paddle on the same board together, or if you want to enhance your adventure by bringing a cooler and some fishing rods.

The Perfect Balance

As you may have guessed, the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board is intentional. Through experience and testing, we wanted to produce the best inflatable paddle board for your adventures. With Atoll you are receiving an inflatable paddle board that is fantastic for flat-water lakes, durable enough for those rocky river paddlers (do not take a hardboard on a river paddle unless you want to pay for multiple crack repairs!), and thick enough to float you, your children, or a full cooler for a fun time on the water.  Our only caveat- we don’t recommend the 11’ inflatable paddle board for surfing, especially in bigger waves. While it is fantastic for ocean paddling, the Atoll inflatable board, and for that matter, any inflatable SUP is not the ideal board for catching some tasty waves.  Due to the thickness and flexibility, the rails on an inflatable are not designed to carve down the line of a wave. If you want to surf successfully, we recommend grabbing a hardboard for your quest. However, if you are curious about giving it a shot with your Atoll inflatable paddle board, we will still applaud your adventurous spirit!

Conclusion

We hope to have answered all of your questions regarding the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board. As we said, we aimed to create the perfect adventure vehicle for your exploration into the water areas of our world.  And with our design, you are truly receiving the best shape and size of any inflatable paddle board on the market for this goal. And truly, the only one you will ever need to fuel your quests. Of course, if you still have some additional inquiries you can contact us directly HERE. We will gladly answer any inflatable paddle board related questions to get you on the water and having fun.  The question becomes then, what is the best overall board to buy if you plan on taking it in multiple bodies of water?

While it is fantastic for ocean paddling, the Atoll inflatable board, and for that matter, any inflatable SUP is not the ideal board for catching some tasty waves.  Due to the thickness and flexibility, the rails on an inflatable are not designed to carve down the line of a wave. If you want to surf successfully, we recommend grabbing a hardboard for your quest. However, if you are curious about giving it a shot with your Atoll inflatable paddle board, we will still applaud your adventurous spirit!

Conclusion

We hope to have answered all of your questions regarding the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board. As we said, we aimed to create the perfect adventure vehicle for your exploration into the water areas of our world.  And with our design, you are truly receiving the best shape and size of any inflatable paddle board on the market for this goal. And truly, the only one you will ever need to fuel your quests. Of course, if you still have some additional inquiries you can contact us directly HERE. We will gladly answer any inflatable paddle board related questions to get you on the water and having fun.  The reasons why race boards are difficult to paddle in waves is because of their longer length. And minimal rocker (curve of the board in the nose and tail). Longer length usually means a higher probability of burying the nose when dropping down into a wave. Instead, they’re designed specifically for flat water paddling. 

General Rule #2

Longer length, higher volume means better for flat water paddling and long-distance paddling In addition, boards vary in thickness to accommodate different paddling styles and body types.

General Rule #3

The thicker the board is, the more weight it can hold.  The question becomes then, what is the best overall board to buy if you plan on taking it in multiple bodies of water? For anyone familiar with Atoll, you may have noticed our boards are shaped differently compared to most generic inflatable paddle board brands. Most brands, especially those price point boards found at Costco, mimic each other to broaden their market reach. But the problem with them is – they’re not the best boards to paddle in any situation. Whether it be flat water, rivers, or oceans.  What they gain in mass appeal, they lose in performance.  And we should also say, the producers of these boards are not usually paddlers themselves. Instead, they see a market and advertise to it.  At Atoll, we’re the real deal.  We spend time on the water perfecting our products in order to bring you the best available iSUP or inflatable stand-up paddle board on the market.  And that is why we chose to produce a board that is 11’x32’’x6’’ constructed in a shape that will give you the best experience on the water.

Shape

When we started producing our inflatable paddle boards, we aimed to create the ultimate vehicle for adventure. And adventure requires a vehicle that will perform well in a multitude of waterways without sacrificing performance. This meant the board had to be easy to carry to locations unknown, maneuver in the water, and give the best paddling experience in all scenarios.  The generic 10’6’’ board with a rounded nose just wouldn’t do. Instead, the shape of the Atoll iSUP is more in tune with that of a touring board. The nose is pulled into a slight point with a straight edge on the tail.  This shape provides the best glide on flat water due to its overall length (Reminder: General Rule #2). And ease of maneuverability with less surface area in the nose. This shape also performs better than the generic shape in heavy headwinds and side winds as it tends to cut through the chop instead of being affected by it. With a pointed noise mimicking a touring paddle board, paddlers are able to achieve enhanced maneuverability when turning, longer glides, and less resistance in the nose when hitting those miles on the open water.  A conventional rounded nose often creates additional drag. Which may work great for leisurely paddles but not for adventurous explorations into the unknown.  Think of it this way, the more resistance, the more difficult the paddle will be.  There is a reason why race boards and touring boards are designed the way they are… They provide the best paddling experience in flat water and rivers, especially when going distance.

Size

The size of an inflatable paddle board, meaning length, width, and thickness is also important when constructing the best adventure vehicle.  After testing, we decided on 11’x32’’x6’’. That is eleven feet in length, thirty-two inches in width, and six inches in thickness.  Starting with the length, an 11’ inflatable paddle board provides better tracking and glide. Tracking on a SUP is described as how many times you can paddle on one side of the board while still remaining straight. On shorter lengths, the board tends to bob from one side to the other. This causes paddlers to switch hands more frequently and slow overall paddling progress. With a longer board, tracking is enhanced. Paddlers can paddle on one side longer and the glide for each stroke is exceptional. A longer board will equal longer glides and increased paddling efficiency.  At thirty-two inches wide, the Atoll board provides the perfect compromise between stability and glide. Just as a shorter board will increase the need to paddle, a wider board is also slower, given the increase in surface tension. At thirty-two inches, paddlers are able to easily stand on the deck and paddle while maintaining their balance and achieve maximum paddling pleasure.  And for the big guys out there who haven’t had much success finding a board that will float them, our Atoll inflatable paddle boards are 6’’ thick! This thickness provides exceptional float capabilities with a maximum paddler weight of up to 400 lbs and a maximum overall weight limit of 700 lbs! Perfect for families who want to paddle on the same board together, or if you want to enhance your adventure by bringing a cooler and some fishing rods.

We will gladly answer any inflatable paddle board related questions to get you on the water and having fun.  For example, you wouldn’t take a SUP surfboard that is under 10’ to paddle on flat water. The board would not track well. Meaning it would move side to side instead of straight due to its shorter length. Nor is it likely to float you due to its decrease in volume/thickness. In the ocean, a shorter board with less volume means an easier drop into a wave and a smoother bottom turn. In flat water, you would experience a slow, uncomfortable paddle.

And truly, the only one you will ever need to fuel your quests. Of course, if you still have some additional inquiries you can contact us directly HERE. We will gladly answer any inflatable paddle board related questions to get you on the water and having fun.  And each works well within these boundaries.  For example, you wouldn’t take a SUP surfboard that is under 10’ to paddle on flat water. The board would not track well. Meaning it would move side to side instead of straight due to its shorter length. Nor is it likely to float you due to its decrease in volume/thickness. In the ocean, a shorter board with less volume means an easier drop into a wave and a smoother bottom turn. In flat water, you would experience a slow, uncomfortable paddle. 

General Rule #1

Shorter paddle boards with less volume are better for surfing or children Along these lines, most paddlers would be hesitant to take a race board into the ocean. That is unless you were a professional and happen to be participating in the Red Bull Heavy Water Challenge in San Francisco. (Check out some highlights of that crazy race when you get a chance!) The reasons why race boards are difficult to paddle in waves is because of their longer length. And minimal rocker (curve of the board in the nose and tail). Longer length usually means a higher probability of burying the nose when dropping down into a wave. Instead, they’re designed specifically for flat water paddling. 

General Rule #2

Longer length, higher volume means better for flat water paddling and long-distance paddling In addition, boards vary in thickness to accommodate different paddling styles and body types.

General Rule #3

The thicker the board is, the more weight it can hold.  The question becomes then, what is the best overall board to buy if you plan on taking it in multiple bodies of water? For anyone familiar with Atoll, you may have noticed our boards are shaped differently compared to most generic inflatable paddle board brands. Most brands, especially those price point boards found at Costco, mimic each other to broaden their market reach. But the problem with them is – they’re not the best boards to paddle in any situation. Whether it be flat water, rivers, or oceans.  What they gain in mass appeal, they lose in performance.  And we should also say, the producers of these boards are not usually paddlers themselves. Instead, they see a market and advertise to it.  At Atoll, we’re the real deal.  We spend time on the water perfecting our products in order to bring you the best available iSUP or inflatable stand-up paddle board on the market.  And that is why we chose to produce a board that is 11’x32’’x6’’ constructed in a shape that will give you the best experience on the water.

Shape

When we started producing our inflatable paddle boards, we aimed to create the ultimate vehicle for adventure. And adventure requires a vehicle that will perform well in a multitude of waterways without sacrificing performance. This meant the board had to be easy to carry to locations unknown, maneuver in the water, and give the best paddling experience in all scenarios.  The generic 10’6’’ board with a rounded nose just wouldn’t do. Instead, the shape of the Atoll iSUP is more in tune with that of a touring board. The nose is pulled into a slight point with a straight edge on the tail.  This shape provides the best glide on flat water due to its overall length (Reminder: General Rule #2). And ease of maneuverability with less surface area in the nose. This shape also performs better than the generic shape in heavy headwinds and side winds as it tends to cut through the chop instead of being affected by it. With a pointed noise mimicking a touring paddle board, paddlers are able to achieve enhanced maneuverability when turning, longer glides, and less resistance in the nose when hitting those miles on the open water.  A conventional rounded nose often creates additional drag. Which may work great for leisurely paddles but not for adventurous explorations into the unknown.  Think of it this way, the more resistance, the more difficult the paddle will be.  There is a reason why race boards and touring boards are designed the way they are… They provide the best paddling experience in flat water and rivers, especially when going distance.

Size

The size of an inflatable paddle board, meaning length, width, and thickness is also important when constructing the best adventure vehicle.  After testing, we decided on 11’x32’’x6’’. That is eleven feet in length, thirty-two inches in width, and six inches in thickness.  Starting with the length, an 11’ inflatable paddle board provides better tracking and glide. Tracking on a SUP is described as how many times you can paddle on one side of the board while still remaining straight. On shorter lengths, the board tends to bob from one side to the other. This causes paddlers to switch hands more frequently and slow overall paddling progress. With a longer board, tracking is enhanced. Paddlers can paddle on one side longer and the glide for each stroke is exceptional. A longer board will equal longer glides and increased paddling efficiency.  At thirty-two inches wide, the Atoll board provides the perfect compromise between stability and glide. Just as a shorter board will increase the need to paddle, a wider board is also slower, given the increase in surface tension. At thirty-two inches, paddlers are able to easily stand on the deck and paddle while maintaining their balance and achieve maximum paddling pleasure.  And for the big guys out there who haven’t had much success finding a board that will float them, our Atoll inflatable paddle boards are 6’’ thick! This thickness provides exceptional float capabilities with a maximum paddler weight of up to 400 lbs and a maximum overall weight limit of 700 lbs! Perfect for families who want to paddle on the same board together, or if you want to enhance your adventure by bringing a cooler and some fishing rods.

The Perfect Balance

As you may have guessed, the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board is intentional. Through experience and testing, we wanted to produce the best inflatable paddle board for your adventures. With Atoll you are receiving an inflatable paddle board that is fantastic for flat-water lakes, durable enough for those rocky river paddlers (do not take a hardboard on a river paddle unless you want to pay for multiple crack repairs!), and thick enough to float you, your children, or a full cooler for a fun time on the water.  Our only caveat- we don’t recommend the 11’ inflatable paddle board for surfing, especially in bigger waves. While it is fantastic for ocean paddling, the Atoll inflatable board, and for that matter, any inflatable SUP is not the ideal board for catching some tasty waves.  Due to the thickness and flexibility, the rails on an inflatable are not designed to carve down the line of a wave. If you want to surf successfully, we recommend grabbing a hardboard for your quest. However, if you are curious about giving it a shot with your Atoll inflatable paddle board, we will still applaud your adventurous spirit!

Just as a shorter board will increase the need to paddle, a wider board is also slower, given the increase in surface tension. At thirty-two inches, paddlers are able to easily stand on the deck and paddle while maintaining their balance and achieve maximum paddling pleasure.  And for the big guys out there who haven’t had much success finding a board that will float them, our Atoll inflatable paddle boards are 6’’ thick! This thickness provides exceptional float capabilities with a maximum paddler weight of up to 400 lbs and a maximum overall weight limit of 700 lbs! Perfect for families who want to paddle on the same board together, or if you want to enhance your adventure by bringing a cooler and some fishing rods.

The Perfect Balance

As you may have guessed, the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board is intentional. Through experience and testing, we wanted to produce the best inflatable paddle board for your adventures. With Atoll you are receiving an inflatable paddle board that is fantastic for flat-water lakes, durable enough for those rocky river paddlers (do not take a hardboard on a river paddle unless you want to pay for multiple crack repairs!), and thick enough to float you, your children, or a full cooler for a fun time on the water.  Our only caveat- we don’t recommend the 11’ inflatable paddle board for surfing, especially in bigger waves. While it is fantastic for ocean paddling, the Atoll inflatable board, and for that matter, any inflatable SUP is not the ideal board for catching some tasty waves.  Due to the thickness and flexibility, the rails on an inflatable are not designed to carve down the line of a wave. If you want to surf successfully, we recommend grabbing a hardboard for your quest. However, if you are curious about giving it a shot with your Atoll inflatable paddle board, we will still applaud your adventurous spirit!

Conclusion

We hope to have answered all of your questions regarding the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board. As we said, we aimed to create the perfect adventure vehicle for your exploration into the water areas of our world.  And with our design, you are truly receiving the best shape and size of any inflatable paddle board on the market for this goal. And truly, the only one you will ever need to fuel your quests. Of course, if you still have some additional inquiries you can contact us directly HERE. We will gladly answer any inflatable paddle board related questions to get you on the water and having fun.  To begin… A general overview.

General Knowledge

The market for inflatable paddle boards has steadily grown to include varying degrees of shapes and sizes. This is because each is built with a specific paddler or paddling activity in mind.  And each works well within these boundaries.  For example, you wouldn’t take a SUP surfboard that is under 10’ to paddle on flat water. The board would not track well. Meaning it would move side to side instead of straight due to its shorter length. Nor is it likely to float you due to its decrease in volume/thickness. In the ocean, a shorter board with less volume means an easier drop into a wave and a smoother bottom turn. In flat water, you would experience a slow, uncomfortable paddle. 

General Rule #1

Shorter paddle boards with less volume are better for surfing or children Along these lines, most paddlers would be hesitant to take a race board into the ocean. That is unless you were a professional and happen to be participating in the Red Bull Heavy Water Challenge in San Francisco. (Check out some highlights of that crazy race when you get a chance!) The reasons why race boards are difficult to paddle in waves is because of their longer length. And minimal rocker (curve of the board in the nose and tail). Longer length usually means a higher probability of burying the nose when dropping down into a wave. Instead, they’re designed specifically for flat water paddling. 

General Rule #2

Longer length, higher volume means better for flat water paddling and long-distance paddling In addition, boards vary in thickness to accommodate different paddling styles and body types.

General Rule #3

The thicker the board is, the more weight it can hold.  The question becomes then, what is the best overall board to buy if you plan on taking it in multiple bodies of water? For anyone familiar with Atoll, you may have noticed our boards are shaped differently compared to most generic inflatable paddle board brands. Most brands, especially those price point boards found at Costco, mimic each other to broaden their market reach. But the problem with them is – they’re not the best boards to paddle in any situation. Whether it be flat water, rivers, or oceans.  What they gain in mass appeal, they lose in performance.  And we should also say, the producers of these boards are not usually paddlers themselves. Instead, they see a market and advertise to it.  At Atoll, we’re the real deal.  We spend time on the water perfecting our products in order to bring you the best available iSUP or inflatable stand-up paddle board on the market.  And that is why we chose to produce a board that is 11’x32’’x6’’ constructed in a shape that will give you the best experience on the water.

Shape

When we started producing our inflatable paddle boards, we aimed to create the ultimate vehicle for adventure. And adventure requires a vehicle that will perform well in a multitude of waterways without sacrificing performance. This meant the board had to be easy to carry to locations unknown, maneuver in the water, and give the best paddling experience in all scenarios.  The generic 10’6’’ board with a rounded nose just wouldn’t do. Instead, the shape of the Atoll iSUP is more in tune with that of a touring board. The nose is pulled into a slight point with a straight edge on the tail.  This shape provides the best glide on flat water due to its overall length (Reminder: General Rule #2). And ease of maneuverability with less surface area in the nose. This shape also performs better than the generic shape in heavy headwinds and side winds as it tends to cut through the chop instead of being affected by it. With a pointed noise mimicking a touring paddle board, paddlers are able to achieve enhanced maneuverability when turning, longer glides, and less resistance in the nose when hitting those miles on the open water.  A conventional rounded nose often creates additional drag. Which may work great for leisurely paddles but not for adventurous explorations into the unknown.  Think of it this way, the more resistance, the more difficult the paddle will be.  There is a reason why race boards and touring boards are designed the way they are… They provide the best paddling experience in flat water and rivers, especially when going distance.

Size

The size of an inflatable paddle board, meaning length, width, and thickness is also important when constructing the best adventure vehicle.  After testing, we decided on 11’x32’’x6’’. That is eleven feet in length, thirty-two inches in width, and six inches in thickness.  Starting with the length, an 11’ inflatable paddle board provides better tracking and glide. Tracking on a SUP is described as how many times you can paddle on one side of the board while still remaining straight. On shorter lengths, the board tends to bob from one side to the other. This causes paddlers to switch hands more frequently and slow overall paddling progress. With a longer board, tracking is enhanced. Paddlers can paddle on one side longer and the glide for each stroke is exceptional. A longer board will equal longer glides and increased paddling efficiency.  At thirty-two inches wide, the Atoll board provides the perfect compromise between stability and glide.

The thicker the board is, the more weight it can hold.  The question becomes then, what is the best overall board to buy if you plan on taking it in multiple bodies of water? For anyone familiar with Atoll, you may have noticed our boards are shaped differently compared to most generic inflatable paddle board brands. Most brands, especially those price point boards found at Costco, mimic each other to broaden their market reach. But the problem with them is – they’re not the best boards to paddle in any situation. Whether it be flat water, rivers, or oceans.  What they gain in mass appeal, they lose in performance.  And we should also say, the producers of these boards are not usually paddlers themselves. Instead, they see a market and advertise to it.  At Atoll, we’re the real deal.  We spend time on the water perfecting our products in order to bring you the best available iSUP or inflatable stand-up paddle board on the market.  And that is why we chose to produce a board that is 11’x32’’x6’’ constructed in a shape that will give you the best experience on the water.

Shape

When we started producing our inflatable paddle boards, we aimed to create the ultimate vehicle for adventure. And adventure requires a vehicle that will perform well in a multitude of waterways without sacrificing performance. This meant the board had to be easy to carry to locations unknown, maneuver in the water, and give the best paddling experience in all scenarios.  The generic 10’6’’ board with a rounded nose just wouldn’t do. Instead, the shape of the Atoll iSUP is more in tune with that of a touring board. The nose is pulled into a slight point with a straight edge on the tail.  This shape provides the best glide on flat water due to its overall length (Reminder: General Rule #2). And ease of maneuverability with less surface area in the nose. This shape also performs better than the generic shape in heavy headwinds and side winds as it tends to cut through the chop instead of being affected by it. With a pointed noise mimicking a touring paddle board, paddlers are able to achieve enhanced maneuverability when turning, longer glides, and less resistance in the nose when hitting those miles on the open water.  A conventional rounded nose often creates additional drag. Which may work great for leisurely paddles but not for adventurous explorations into the unknown.  Think of it this way, the more resistance, the more difficult the paddle will be.  There is a reason why race boards and touring boards are designed the way they are… They provide the best paddling experience in flat water and rivers, especially when going distance.

Size

The size of an inflatable paddle board, meaning length, width, and thickness is also important when constructing the best adventure vehicle.  After testing, we decided on 11’x32’’x6’’. That is eleven feet in length, thirty-two inches in width, and six inches in thickness.  Starting with the length, an 11’ inflatable paddle board provides better tracking and glide. Tracking on a SUP is described as how many times you can paddle on one side of the board while still remaining straight. On shorter lengths, the board tends to bob from one side to the other. This causes paddlers to switch hands more frequently and slow overall paddling progress. With a longer board, tracking is enhanced. Paddlers can paddle on one side longer and the glide for each stroke is exceptional. A longer board will equal longer glides and increased paddling efficiency.  At thirty-two inches wide, the Atoll board provides the perfect compromise between stability and glide. Just as a shorter board will increase the need to paddle, a wider board is also slower, given the increase in surface tension. At thirty-two inches, paddlers are able to easily stand on the deck and paddle while maintaining their balance and achieve maximum paddling pleasure.  And for the big guys out there who haven’t had much success finding a board that will float them, our Atoll inflatable paddle boards are 6’’ thick! This thickness provides exceptional float capabilities with a maximum paddler weight of up to 400 lbs and a maximum overall weight limit of 700 lbs! Perfect for families who want to paddle on the same board together, or if you want to enhance your adventure by bringing a cooler and some fishing rods.

The Perfect Balance

As you may have guessed, the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board is intentional. Through experience and testing, we wanted to produce the best inflatable paddle board for your adventures. With Atoll you are receiving an inflatable paddle board that is fantastic for flat-water lakes, durable enough for those rocky river paddlers (do not take a hardboard on a river paddle unless you want to pay for multiple crack repairs!), and thick enough to float you, your children, or a full cooler for a fun time on the water.  Our only caveat- we don’t recommend the 11’ inflatable paddle board for surfing, especially in bigger waves. While it is fantastic for ocean paddling, the Atoll inflatable board, and for that matter, any inflatable SUP is not the ideal board for catching some tasty waves.  Due to the thickness and flexibility, the rails on an inflatable are not designed to carve down the line of a wave. If you want to surf successfully, we recommend grabbing a hardboard for your quest. However, if you are curious about giving it a shot with your Atoll inflatable paddle board, we will still applaud your adventurous spirit!

Conclusion

We hope to have answered all of your questions regarding the size and shape of the Atoll inflatable paddle board. As we said, we aimed to create the perfect adventure vehicle for your exploration into the water areas of our world.  And with our design, you are truly receiving the best shape and size of any inflatable paddle board on the market for this goal. And truly, the only one you will ever need to fuel your quests. Of course, if you still have some additional inquiries you can contact us directly HERE. We will gladly answer any inflatable paddle board related questions to get you on the water and having fun.  One of the most frequent questions we receive at Atoll involves the size and shape of our inflatable paddle boards. We understand… With so many choices out there, it can difficult to determine what is perfect for you.  Instead of answering each question independently, we hope to cover every facet in this article.  It is our desire to provide you with in-depth knowledge of all things SUP so that you may feel confident in your purchases at Atoll and beyond. To begin… A general overview.

General Knowledge

The market for inflatable paddle boards has steadily grown to include varying degrees of shapes and sizes. This is because each is built with a specific paddler or paddling activity in mind.  And each works well within these boundaries.  For example, you wouldn’t take a SUP surfboard that is under 10’ to paddle on flat water. The board would not track well. Meaning it would move side to side instead of straight due to its shorter length. Nor is it likely to float you due to its decrease in volume/thickness. In the ocean, a shorter board with less volume means an easier drop into a wave and a smoother bottom turn. In flat water, you would experience a slow, uncomfortable paddle. 

General Rule #1

Shorter paddle boards with less volume are better for surfing or children Along these lines, most paddlers would be hesitant to take a race board into the ocean. That is unless you were a professional and happen to be participating in the Red Bull Heavy Water Challenge in San Francisco. (Check out some highlights of that crazy race when you get a chance!) The reasons why race boards are difficult to paddle in waves is because of their longer length. And minimal rocker (curve of the board in the nose and tail). Longer length usually means a higher probability of burying the nose when dropping down into a wave. Instead, they’re designed specifically for flat water paddling. 

General Rule #2

Longer length, higher volume means better for flat water paddling and long-distance paddling In addition, boards vary in thickness to accommodate different paddling styles and body types.
