Atoll 11′ iSUP Review 2019: The Cruiser Deluxe
Large numbers of people, however, are turning to multi-purpose inflatable paddle boards rather than the traditional hard boards.
The reasons for this are simple; people who love to SUP have discovered that inflatable boards are durable, versatile, and very convenient to use and store.
The Atoll Board Co, based in Huntington Beach California, has answered this growing demand with its highly rated 11’ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board, the Cruiser Deluxe.
The Atoll 11’ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board offers the same stability and maneuverability as its hard board competition, but with the added benefit of being less likely to chip, crack, or break.
This iSUP is 40% lighter than other inflatable models, making it even easier to carry and transport.
Unlike a hard board, inflatable SUP’s need no special roof racks for transport, because they can be easily stowed in the backseat or trunk of any car. The Atoll 11’ iSUP is light enough to carry on hikes, on a bus, or even a plane. This amazingly versatile board is well suited for any use including yoga, fishing, touring, surfing, and racing.
Its lighter weight makes it simple for nearly anyone to carry, while its versatility, stability and performance makes it easy for everyone from beginner to enthusiast to enjoy it in all water conditions. This board has been tested for people of all sizes and heights, and has been water tested up to 350 pounds.
Featuring a tough dual layer PVC construction, this board can’t be damaged by pets or rough water.
Specifications & Features
This 11′ iSUP comes fully equipped and ready to use with:
High quality tough 10’ tether leash, an aluminum alloy adjustable paddle, a repair kit, a Bravo High Pressure Dual Air Pump, a removable center skeg fin , and a sturdy, water resistant carry backpack.
At 40% lighter than its competition, the Atoll Cruiser Deluxe features sturdy, drop stitch construction with a dual layer PVC material covering. Weighing in at a total of 22 pounds, the only thing sacrificed with this iSUP is the extra bulk.
The Universal fin box is designed to move three inches, and can be used with any after-market fin.

The tri-fin design allows for better tracking and maneuverability while stabilizing the iSUP.

The D-rings are perfectly placed to clip supplies or a cooler to the SUP, and are arranged to place a kayak seat if desired. The high quality EVA traction pad runs nearly three-quarters of the length of the board, making a large, anti-slip standing area.
The backpack is made from mesh and nylon, designed to allow the board to dry out completely before being stored. It is large enough to carry the board, pump, and the unassembled three piece paddle easily; this bag also has a waist strap included for more stability while using it as a backpack.
Consumers report that this water resistant bag is especially handy for carrying supplies and clothing while using the board.
