Hello Windwarrior and Welcome to the Zone.

Check local craigslist, the zone classifies, and distressed mullet classified as you might even score a board cheaper used in great condition.

My only advice...do not skimp on a cheap paddle, spend the extra money on a high quality paddle.

Thanks for the welcome.
Distressed mullet? There's a website called that? LOL! Ok. I'll look into it.

As far as the paddle goes, I totally agree. Being into sea kayaking, I know what you mean. I own a pair of Carbon Werners. I compared the base paddle that comes with the Elevate and then grabbed a carbon and knew that the base version would probably only serve as an emergency or loaner at best.

I would be more inclined to get the higher volume Explorer at your size or the 12'6" Touring. Have you considered other brands such as Hala who operates right out of Colorado or Red Paddle? The pricing of Isle is quite good, but just wondering if you have checked out other brands?

I didn't know that Hala was here. I kinda assumed Red Paddle was meh quality.
I'll look into these two.

I will say this, the Elevate looks pretty solid and durable. I like the way they're put together too.

Howdy to all!!

Just got approved and been searching and searching and reading and searching.

I'm out in Colorado and have recently decided to get into SUPing and add to an already long list of "ING" things I do here.

I've been looking into and have narrowed my search down to 3 choices.
1) ISLE series
2) Elevate series
3) Tower series

My stats are 6'3", 225, 51. Newbie looking to just paddle around lakes,reservoirs AND potentially get into easy river runs.

I have found the above sup's priced from 800-945.
Lengths from 9'-14' and up to 8" thick.
One reviewer mentioned the 8" one (tower explorer 14'er) being a real pain to get back into because of the thickness of it.
Then of course there's the MONSTER ISLE Megalodon 15' 8" at 1295.00 that can hold 1050lbs!! LOL.

My question is pretty much the same as I'm sure a lot have asked but since I was seeing dates back to 2015 I figured I would begin a new one since I'm sure things have changed since.

What would be a good choice?
Comparing
Quality
Stability
Speed (I know, the mega is a tank so let's not worry about that one )
Agility

Right now I'm taking a serious look at either the
Isle Explorer@ 895 -12'
Isle Sportsman@945- 11' 6"
Elevate all around@799-10'6"
Elevate touring ISUP@849-12'6"
Tower Explorer@799-14'

Suggestions?
Feedback?

Thanks for any advice or suggestions offered. :D
