Hobie Inflatable SUP 12-6 Tour
Stop Press - Winter Special
Need to go long, but don’t have the room to carry a regular touring board? The Ascend Tour has it all, high performance design, increased width for stability, and most of all portable. Don’t let anything get in the way of your next adventure.
Up to 18 PSI means a really efficient and stable paddle and the latest materials and glueing have been so reliable - even on a deck in a Sydney Summer!
What The Life Aquatic Crew think:
We run one of these and an Adventure on our boats and on tour. Perfect board for putting a few extra efforts in and getting a good long run. Super stable, pretty much anyone can paddle it but rewarding if you push.
Aerolam technology is our premium inflatable SUP construction.
At the heart of all Hobie inflatable SUPs is a diagonal drop stitch core. The diagonal drop stitch provides for a much higher density thread distribution vs a standard linear drop stitch which ultimately provides for a much superior core structure that holds a better shape, prevents twisting, and allows for higher inflation pressures.
In addition to the core, Aerolam features a second and stronger reinforced PVC layer, which is hand glued directly to the core layer. The benefits of this construction are a high performing inflatable SUP that is more durable, can hold additional air pressure (18 psi+), and most importantly maintains its shape.
S3 Stand Up Paddle Stability System
An innovative system developed by Hobie, the S3 control plates provide additional stability and rigidity in key areas of the board, providing a superior paddling experience yet maintaining optimal portability.
