Designed for casual thrillseekers, serious water warriors, and yoga/SUP fitness enthusiasts, the ISLE Airtech 10′ Lotus iSUP is an inflatable paddle board that delivers maximum stability and fun.
SUP fitness is a paddling category that has grown in popularity over the past few years, as more and more people discover how enjoyable it can be to do their workouts on the water.
For this review we’ll go over the ISLE Lotus iSUP’s construction, features, board specs, every included accessory, warranty coverage, and where to buy it.
ISLE Lotus Yoga/SUP Fitness Board: Overview
Measuring 10′ x 32″ x 6″ with a weight of 20 pounds, the ISLE Lotus is a lightweight board that’s been designed for easy carry. Despite the fact that this board is so light, it’s still incredibly rigid under the feet.
The visual style of this board is one of the best we’ve seen, using lotus flowers to adorn the topside and underside of the board. The color scheme is also really nice looking, and we predict that this will become a popular model in the SUP fitness market.
When it comes to the board’s construction, the ISLE 10′ Lotus SUP board is built exactly like the ISLE All Around 10’6″ — using a high-end manufacturing process which machine coats the drop stitch with a special seal and bonding layer, followed by a layer of military grade PVC. This advanced manufacturing process results in a board that is lighter, while retaining the stiffness necessary for a board of this type.
The top of the board has a brushed diamond groove traction pad, which makes it very soft and comfortable to stand, kneel, and do workouts on. It also features a carry handle for your convenience at the center of the deck.
The nose of this board is wider compared to most boards on the market, which is perfect for maximizing the stability of this model. The nose also features a bungee storage area, which is a helpful feature that keeps your paddle and gear within arm’s reach.
The ISLE Lotus’ tail features a simple air valve, designed to be inflated with the included high-pressure SUP pump. There’s also an attractive lotus graphic at the tail which blends perfectly with the color and the overall design of this model.
Moving to the underside, the ISLE 10’ Airtech Lotus has a simple layout with a single removable fin.
ISLE Lotus Rating
All ISLE paddle boards include a nice set of accessories, giving you everything necessary to get you on the water. The ISLE 10’ Airtech Lotus SUP fitness board comes with an adjustable 3-piece paddle, high-pressure pump branded with the ISLE logo, large removable fin, safety leash, repair kit, and convenient backpack that’s designed to carry your board and everything included.
ISLE has also color-matched the paddle and pump to the board, which is a nice touch.
The ISLE 10′ Lotus has a 60-day money back guarantee for extra peace of mind. This means that if the board doesn’t live up to your expectations for some reason, you can return it for a full refund — no questions asked.
ISLE also includes a 1-year warranty which covers manufacturer defects.
Where to Buy it
Currently, the ISLE Lotus is in stock at ISLE’s official online store. In addition to the best price and fantastic customer service, they also offer fast, free shipping on this board.
A new model from an already well-established SUP company, the ISLE 10′ Airtech Lotus paddle board is a stable platform for yoga/pilates/SUP fitness workouts and should definitely be considered if you’re in the market for a board like this.
The look of this board is attractive and appealing. Its lotus inspired design really stands out from other SUP designs on the market as ISLE is well-known for.
We like the Airtech Fusion Lite process that ISLE used to manufacture the Lotus, as it’s really reduced the weight of this board and made it extremely easy to handle.
The main downsides of the Lotus in our opinion are the fact that it’s a bit expensive and doesn’t deliver the best all-around paddling performance. If you want a board with more versatility and better overall value, we recommend looking at the new BLACKFIN Model X from iROCKER. The Model X includes a nicer bundle of accessories, better warranty (2-year vs. ISLE’s 1-year), greater stability, and much better paddling performance.
Overall, The ISLE 10’ Airtech Lotus board is a decent option if you’re looking for a stable SUP fitness platform.
