Our XTERRA touring board cuts a different path in the water. At 12'6", this board is ideal for longer, smoother and faster rides. The pointed nose displaces water in a way that creates greater stability at speeds than a rounded, surf-shaped board.

1 - 12'6" long, 6", 30" wide - Ideal dimensions for an all-around touring SUP that is stable, won't sag, and lets you cruise on the water. At 6" thick, you ride balanced and high on the water. This board weighs a total of 30 pounds, and you can weigh up to 260 pounds.
2 - Rigid Dropstitch & Double-Sided reinforcement - Our rigid dropstitch material ensures your board won't warp. The top, bottom and sides are reinforced with military industrial-grade material.
3 - High-pressure pump & gauge - your board can be pumped up to 15 psi (an optimal amount) using the industry-best pump. Inflation takes 5 minutes.
4 - Deck pad - Think comfort. Yes, SUPing is a workout, and having a little better pad is ideal. We've used surfing-quality EVA foam, which provides more comfort and grip.
5 - Backpack - Heavy-duty mesh backpack, great for carrying all your gear. Drain out any sand and water easily.
6 - Repair kit - Our kit is standard, including glue, patches and a valve wrench.
7 - Paddle - Our paddle is 3-piece sturdy aluminum. It's designed for ease of transport, is light, and is a tear-drop shape for immediate power in the catch.
8 - Six D-rings- We provide six industrial strength plastic D-rings that won't break or rust. You'll find one on the bow/front and one on the rear/stern for towing or tying off to docks. Then, there are four with a bungee cord to hold gear or your life jacket.
9 - Large Center Fin - Removable center fin, specifically designed so it doesn't snap off; can be removed when the board is inflated.
10 - Camera mount on Bow - We've already put the camera mount on the bow.
11 - Leash - some water ways are requiring it, so we're including it. Each package comes with an 8-10' coiled leash.
We used our earlier iteration of this board for 8 years. They were super stable and very tough. These new boards are sleeker, faster, lighter, and more maneuverable. Slightly less stable than the old ones but no problem paddling with my two dogs on one board (one of whom is a restless paddler! Fingers crossed they will be a tough and durable as the earlier version. I highly recommend these boards!
Been thinking about a longer board for quite some time. My other inflatables are under 11’ and can cross over into whitewater paddling. Since I find myself mostly on large lake cruising the 12’6” carbon touring seemed like a good option. I like the tapered front for cutting through the water but most favorite is the 30” width - it takes more lateral balance and increases the workout. ( it was on a weekly sale special too!)
This is the second 12.5’ I got from xterra. I haven’t used the new one yet but the other has been awesome! Durable, easy to inflate and deflate, great on all types of water!
Filled up quick. Light weight easy to carry.
