Isle discontinued the Touring 12'6" this year, but you can glide on over to our full Inflatable SUP Review to see which other models we're enamored with.
The Isle Touring won our Editors' Choice award in 2016. In 2017, a more all-around Isle Explorer took the top honors. However, this is still the best value in a touring board. If you don't want to shell out the money for higher performing Red Paddle Explorer Plus, this is the board to get. The Red Paddle is awesome, but it's also almost double the cost. The Isle Touring is stable and glides well. Inflatables, at their worst, feel like standing on a giant piece of Jell-O. The Isle is just the opposite. As long as it is properly inflated, it is almost as stable as a non-inflatable paddle board. It has an 8" fin that keeps it going straight. The fin is also removable, which means you can take it down very shallow rivers or streams. There is a small cargo strap system up front ideal for a PFD or small backpack.
