We enthusiastically recommend the 2020 Atoll 11′ all-around inflatable SUP for individuals looking for a high-adventure paddleboard with good overall performance while remaining light and easy to carry!

The diamond-grooved deck pad, which is both comfortable and grippy, as well as the included 8″ center US standard fin, provide a performance boost. Despite weighing only 21 lbs, its machine laminated dual-layer PVC structures are designed to endure practically anything you can throw at it.

Everyone will fall in love with this SUP, including: – New paddlers and experienced paddlers looking for a SUP to travel across the country with.

To get the best out of the SUP performance, we have put together some recommendations on where to take the Atoll 11′. Some of the best places to take a test run are: – Lakes, bays, marinas, and other calm water situations – Some choppier water with little performance penalty, as well as slower running rivers.

  • it is suitable for both quiet and slightly wilder water

Atoll 11 SUP: Specification 

With 11′ lengths, the Atoll 11′ is an all-around designed paddleboard that provides excellent tracking and a smooth glide in the water. The volume provided by the 32″wide deck and 6″thicknesses is sufficient to accommodate an average-sized adult. Overall, the board can support up to 300 lbs. without sacrificing performance, but as you approach 400, expect the board to slow down slightly while paddling in the water.

The Atoll 11 is of ordinary shape and size, weighing 22.5 pounds and measuring 11-foot-32-inch-by-6-inch dimensions. Its 32-inch waist gradually tapers to a pointed nose, providing appropriate width along most of the board’s length for most paddlers in most paddling circumstances. The board is incredibly stable, with dimensions of 11′ x 32′′ x 6′′ and a volume of 238L ensuring it is quite buoyant and rides smoothly above the water. It is ideal for general all round paddling and has some major weakness because it does not excel in every area. 

Construction and Processing quality of the Atoll boards 

Atoll 11′ is built with a tight drop-stitch core that is overlaid by machine laminated dual-layer coatings of military grade PVC composite. This makes the SUP extremely sturdy, capable of withstanding the majority of regular SUP injuries and mishaps while remaining extremely durable. The tight drop-stitch core is made up of hundreds of small strings that connect sheets of fabric. As air is pumped into the SUP, the strings grow taut, providing the SUP with the strength to support paddlers while also forming the rounded shape of the SUP. The PVC is laminated to the drop-stitch core using machine lamination methods, acting as the hard and strong outer shell you feel while paddling.

Because this PVC is robust and durable, accidental drops, crashes, and other common SUP incidents have little to no effect on overall SUP performance.

The overall toughness of the board allows it to glide easily without the need to bend, flex, or wobble, which can absorb the paddling energy and rob you of power and performance.

The material characteristics and construction that either increase or compromise a board’s overall stiffness are the typical differences between higher-end boards and less-expensive boards.

Performance and Handling on the water

The Atoll 11′ is slightly longer than a classic pure all-around design, yet even at 11′ it can navigate beautifully. The Atoll 11′ is a stable board, especially given it is only 21 pounds. The 11′ lengths and 32″ broad deck provide enough space and volume for you to feel stable, especially with the great diamond grooved deck. The center fin also worked well with the side fins to boost the board’s performance. This board has a great hard feel to it, as well as a smooth glide for an enjoyable and peaceful paddling experience in both quiet and light water conditions.

The overall width and firmness of the board aid to increase the confidence of beginner paddlers while not losing performance for more experienced users. The sharp nose of the Atoll aids in cutting through the water, while its ample breadth and mild side cut angle aid in overall stability.

Features of the Atoll paddle board

This is an amazing traction pad with diamond grooves. If you paddle through a wave, the diamond grooved pattern provides excellent grip support and swiftly drains water.

The center fin is simple to install, allowing you to fine-tune the paddle board with a variety of third-party fins.

The supplied center fin for the Atoll paddle board is very simple to install with the US fin box.

Dual carry handles: The middle carry handle, which is wrapped in neoprene for a nice and cozy touch, allows you to lift the paddleboard by yourself.

15 D-Rings + Removable Bungee Cargo System: Both handles include neoprene covers, which make them comfortable to hold and prevent your hands from chafing when handled.

Accessories included in Atoll set 

Nylon Paddle Blade + Fiberglass Shaft: The tweaks Atoll made to their included paddle are one of the upgrades we favor over last year’s Atoll SUP kit. The new Atoll paddle board comes with an outstanding black Fiberglass 3-piece paddle that weights 29 ounces. This very good quality and lightweight paddle floats and has a nylon blade, and it is a complete set for novices because it includes everything they need.

Pump: The Atoll 11′ comes along with a single-chamber, dual-action pump that takes about ten to fifteen minutes to inflate. Even inexperienced paddlers will find the pump simple to use.

The Atoll 11′ comes with a 10’coiled leash that will keep your board from drifting away if you fall in fast moving water. The leash is simple to put on, fitting over your leg or ankle and attaching to one of the Atoll 11′ Backpack’s D-rings. 

The Atoll 11′ travel bag is durable and acts as a shield for your SUP, paddle, pump, and other equipment from getting affected by sand, wind, and water. The bag is designed with sufficient space in mind, so you can easily fit your SUP in it and avoid the challenges that most campers have.

Rocher

Vor über 10 Jahren stand ich das erste Mal auf einem Surfboard und dieses Gefühl vom “auf dem Wasser stehen”, hat mich seit dem nie mehr losgelassen. Am Anfang war SUP „nur“ die Alternative für Tage ohne Wellen, um trotzdem auf einem Board stehen zu können. Allerdings ist diese „nur Alternative“ mit der Zeit zu einer eigenen Leidenschaft geworden. Deshalb freue ich mich für euch hier über spannende Themen rund um diesen wunderbaren Sport schreiben zu dürfen.
