The PathFinder inflatable stand-up paddleboard is roughly 35 pounds and measures 9’9″ long, 30″ broad, and 5″ thick.
It’s not the lightest paddleboard in its class, but it’s still fair enough for everyone in the family to carry. It’s made of military-grade PVC with drop-stitch construction, the de facto iSUP standard.
Customers find it to be extremely tough and long-lasting. The board comes in two colors – blue and orange – and is finished with white trim.
Although it may seem odd to comment on the aesthetics of a SUP, we must say that it is a pretty attractive inflatable paddleboard!
The PathFinder inflatable stand-up paddleboard has a 240-pound weight restriction. The further you go close to the board’s capacity, the more difficult it is to paddle and manage.
Check out the Tower Adventurer iSUP if you’re searching for a similar-sized board that can carry greater weight.
FEATURES Pathfinder Inflatable SUP
The PathFinder Inflatable SUP Stand Up Paddleboard is the most recent addition to a growing series of Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) kits.
Although these packages don’t always include the finest of everything, they do guarantee that you’ll be in the water in no time.
Apart from the standard aluminum pump and a hand pump that comes with these bundles (more on those later), the inflatable paddle board itself appears to be a quality product.
The PVC with drop stitching construction is typical of most modern inflatable paddle boards on the market today. It is military-grade, which means it’ll last a long time.
This board is nearly military-grade, which means it will take a lot of abuse before it breaks down. However, it will endure a long time; if you dump it on the ground or repeatedly paddle it into rocks, it will not.
The middle fin clicks into place with ease and may be adjusted to fit your skill level and height.

The measurements of this SUP are interesting: 9.9 feet (9’9′′) long, thirty inches (30′′) wide, and five inches (5′′) thick.
If you’ve been looking for a new paddleboard, you’ve probably never seen anything like a 9’9′′ – we certainly haven’t.
However, all of these dimensions combined will give you a very sturdy paddleboard that isn’t quite as long as a boat (but undoubtedly stable enough to practice your yoga movements on).
The Pathfinder Inflatable SUP Stand Up Paddleboard’s maximum weight capacity is 200 pounds (200lb), meaning it can handle a lot of weight, which might include you plus a child or dog. Pumping up this inflatable stand-up paddleboard to the recommended 15 psi takes about 10-15 minutes for the average individual.
Compared to other SUP packages in this price range, the hand pump can be challenging to use as more air is pumped into the iSUP. Therefore, you might want to consider upgrading to a better one or perhaps an electric pump later on or even investing in an electric air pump that connects to your vehicle (be careful not to pump up too much).
The Pathfinder Inflatable SUP Stand Up Paddleboard weighs about 25 pounds when fully inflated (25lb). The aluminum paddle is 65 inches (65′′) at its shortest length and 86 inches (86′′) at its most extended length.
This paddleboard does not come with a leash, and to be honest if you’re paddling on flat water, one isn’t necessary. However, if you intend to use this iSUP in the water, you certainly need to get one. If you’re not aware, a leash connects both you (usually your ankle) and your paddle.
Pathfinder is a slim, light, short game with a thickness that falls midway in the middle. Combined with a thin tail, these features allow a smaller paddler to maneuver the Pathfinder iSUP board with remarkable ease.
It also means the board has a sharp feel, making it easy to paddle and maneuver. It won’t have the extended glides of a touring board, but it will have quick, intense bursts with each paddle stroke.
In the case of a tiny paddler, Pathfinder is relatively stable. As a complete beginner, it will most certainly take some practice, but stability should not be an issue in the grand scheme of things.
The PathFinder inflatable stand-up paddleboard comes with all the normal iSUP extras, including a paddle, pump, and carry bag. Surprisingly, this iSUP does not come with a leash, so you’ll have to provide your own.
The paddle is a two-piece, adjustable aluminum paddle that may be disassembled for convenient transport. The length of this paddle can be adjusted between 64 and 85 inches. Unlike the board, the paddle appears to be exclusively available in orange.
The pump present is a primary manual pump with no bells or whistles. It takes about 5-10 minutes to inflate the board, depending on how quickly and powerfully you pump.
Customers have experienced losing pressure as they attempt to cap the plug, despite the manufacturer’s recommendation of inflating it to 15 PSI. Depending on your speed, you may want to extend it to 16-17 PSI for optimal performance.
The carry bag, just like the pump, has no frills. It’s a simple one-strap bag that comfortably holds the board, paddle, and pump.
