If you’re the kind of person that likes to bring friends along during your paddling adventures, the giant PEAK 12′ Titan is a super fun multi-paddler SUP model that can support up to four paddlers.
For this particular model, PEAK has focused on keeping their distinctive design style while improving the carrying capacity of the board, strengthening the building materials, and lightening the overall weight in order to make the 12′ Titan a convenient and family-friendly model.
In this review we’ll go over the board’s construction, features, specifications, included accessories, warranty details, and more.
PEAK 12′ Titan: Board Overview
Measuring 12’ x 45″ x 6″, with a weight of 34 pounds, this big SUP board is built for group adventure with a 500 pound carrying capacity. When it comes to leisure and spending time in the water with a group of friends or pets, the 12′ Titan makes it easy to bring others along.
Visually, this model features an attractive design with a colorful orange tone that nicely contrasts with multiple shades of blue. The overall design of this board looks much better in our opinion than many other large paddle boards on the market.
Just like this season’s PEAK 11′ Expedition, 10’6″ all-around board, and 10′ fitness iSUP, the Titan is built out of lightweight military grade dual-layer PVC with drop-stitch technology. This means that the board is designed to be durable and will feel very similar to a hard board under the feet. Unfortunately, it appears that PEAK has run into some serious quality control issues over the past year or so on some of their other boards and many customers are reporting blown seams and air leaks even on brand new boards.
For this reason, we’re hesitant to recommend the new PEAK Titan until the company’s manufacturing problems are resolved. A better choice this season for boards in this price range is the durable iROCKER SUP lineup. In addition to offering a much better warranty (2-year vs. PEAK’s 1-year), iROCKER’s boards feature their new quad-layer PVC construction and a nicer bundle of accessories.
A good alternative to the PEAK Titan is the brand new iROCKER BIG BLUE multi-paddler model.
The top of the PEAK 12′ Titan features a soft EVA deck pad, which is very comfortable for people or pets to stand on. Also, the traction pad has the PEAK Paddle Board brand logo tastefully displayed, further adding to the nice visual appeal of this model.
As you see on the PEAK 11′ Expedition and 10’6″ All Around models, at the nose of the board is a 6 D-ring bungee cord storage system along with a convenient grab handle. The bungee storage area makes it simple to store personal items and the grip allows you to take the board in and out of the water easily.
The tail features another comfortable grab handle and dual inflation valves which allow the board to be fully inflated in 7-10 minutes with the GRI dual-action high-pressure hand pump that’s included in the package.
Another great feature of the PEAK 12′ Titan is the set of quad fins on the board’s underside. These fins are designed to improve stability and overall tracking when carrying multiple users. The large center fin is removable, which gives you added versatility depending on the paddling conditions.
We like the fact that PEAK took steps to improve the tracking of this board and the dual-valve design is also great as it reduces inflation time by allowing two people to pump simultaneously. Also, for a big SUP board, this board offers great portability as it’s designed to be very compact when not inflated — an ideal option for people with limited storage space.
PEAK 12' Titan Rating
|MAX CAPACITY||500 lbs|
The PEAK 12′ Titan comes with a set of accessories designed to get you in the water as soon as possible. The kit contains 2 adjustable 3-piece alloy nylon paddles, a travel duffle bag, 2 GRI high-pressure dual-action pumps with build-in pressure gauge, and a 9-inch nylon removable center fin. As a nice bonus, PEAK throws in a convenient waterproof smartphone case to keep your phone nice and dry while you’re out on the water.
We like what’s included in this accessory bundle, and most of the accessories have been color-matched to the board’s orange/royal blue design.
The PEAK Titan model is covered by the company’s worry-free 1-year warranty. PEAK also includes a no-hassle 30-day return period, giving you added peace of mind.
Where to Buy it
At the moment, the new PEAK 12′ Titan is stocked and available for immediate shipment at Amazon. Amazon is a great place to buy gear as they have some of the lowest prices, a wide selection of gear, and typically offer free shipping.
The visual design of this board is very attractive, with bright, colorful hues and sleek lines that separate the PEAK Titan from some more “cheap looking” inflatable SUPs on the market.
PEAK’s Titan is a versatile model that can be used in a wide range of water environments with its quad fins and excellent overall stability. This is a very user-friendly big SUP that you can enjoy with several of your friends or pets.
We think that the PEAK 12′ Titan will be a popular multi-paddler option this season and these types of boards are a great way to promote teamwork and enjoy group fun on the water. Having said that, we do have serious concerns that the quality control issues that are currently impacting the company’s other models may be an issue with this board, so we’re hesitant to recommend it at this time.
