THURSO SURF Waterwalker 11′ Review

THURSO SURF Waterwalker 11 SUP ReviewIf you’re looking for a versatile, all-around inflatable paddle board that still performs well in the speed department, the THURSO SURF Waterwalker 11′ is an iSUP that should be on your radar. Suitable for paddlers of all experience levels, this inflatable SUP is affordably priced and includes a great bundle of accessories.

The popular THURSO Waterwalker SUP is available in two different sizes: the THURSO Waterwalker 10’6″ and their longer 11′ version. In this review, we’ll focus specifically on the 11′ model. We’ll go over this board’s specs, features, construction, what’s in the box, the warranty, and where to buy it.

THURSO SURF Waterwalker 11′: Board Overview

The THURSO Waterwalker 11′ measures 11′ x 32″ x 6″ and weighs in at 26 pounds. This board has a maximum carrying capacity of 450 pounds, but the recommended weight limit is 330 pounds. The 11′ model is built to be the ideal cross between a touring board and an all-around model, delivering both versatility and speed. For those interested in a pure touring iSUP, we’d recommend checking out THURSO’s 11’6″ Expedition.

THURSO SURF’s design team didn’t take any shortcuts when designing this board. Featuring a stunning wooden appearance and long, sleek lines, the THURSO SURF Waterwalker 11′ definitely throws off an old school vintage vibe.
