SereneLife Premium 10’5 Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board Review (2019)

 

SereneLife Premium 10'5 iSUP Board PackageSereneLife Premium 10’5 inflatable SUP is a modern looking decent quality cheaper true all-around weighing just about 19.6 lbs. As its max weight capacity is 275 lbs, the board can be used by both smaller and the more heavier paddlers (ideal paddler weight would be up to 240 pounds or less due to the board’s design). It’s got a tiny bit better construction and hence better quality than your typical cheap iSUP.

Taking the time off and cruising across the water with a paddle board can be an exhilarating experience. Usually people don’t say that, but I hope you do fall in a few times while at it, it’s a pleasant experience on its own. ^^

A Quick Overview for the Hasty

The SereneLife Premium 10′5 iSUP measures: 10’5″ x 30″ x 6″ (length x width x thickness). The max paddler weight is 275 pounds, the board itself weighs 19.6 pounds, and the package comes with everything you need to get on the water (excluding a life vest).

SereneLife Premium 10′5 iSUP certainly has a visually pleasing modern design to it, and for an all-around the performance is surprisingly decent as well. It’s mainly maneuverable and snappy/fast in general and is suitable even for the little heavier paddlers out there weighing around 240 pounds or less.

In case you’re wondering whether a cheaper iSUP is worth it, SereneLife Premium 10’5 iSUP is a pretty safe bet for a beginner or any1 looking to do some recreational paddling on mainly calmer seas, lakes or rivers.

 

Who and What Is the SereneLife Premium 10’5 Inflatable SUP Board Designed for?

Who: anyone weighing up to 275 pounds (ideally up to 240 pounds or less)
What: all-around (lakes, rivers, seas, etc; yoga, fishing, recreational paddling, moderate surf, etc).

Who is this for? The SereneLife Premium 10′5 iSUP caters to even the little heavier and taller paddlers due to it’s length of 10’5.

What is this for? As an all-around, this inflatable paddle board is most suitable for calmer waters, but it doesn’t exclude the more rough waters either. I wouldn’t recommend it for full-on whitewater river riding, but it doesn’t exactly exclude even that as the quality is good enough to handle a little of that. So ideally this SereneLife Premium 10’5 iSUP is for recreational paddling, yoga, fishing, even some surfing small waves and a little white water river riding.

How Does the SereneLife Premium 10′5 Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board Perform?

SereneLife Premium 10’5 iSUP is mainly:

  • maneuverable
  • fast

SereneLife Premium 10’5 iSUP board is a healthy mix of maneuverability and speed as it’s relatively narrow (30 inches) and neither too long nor short (10 feet & 5 inches). The length allows the board to glide a little longer than your average 10′ length boards all the while not hindering the maneuverability too much.

Overall stability is decent enough that it should be easy to balance on with some initial practice. What adds to stability and only a little bit takes away from maneuverability is the shape of the tail which is not totally squared nor is it rounded but rather something inbetween. A rounded tail makes turns feel smoother while a squared tail would make them feel more clunky.

What Are the Specifications of the SereneLife Premium 10’5 iSUP Board?

Type – All-round
Construction – Inflatable
Length – 10’5″
Width – 30″
Thickness – 6″
Weight – 19.6 pounds
Weight Capacity – 275 pounds (ideal around 240 pounds)
Materials: single layer PVC layer + extra rail layer + drop stitch core material

Type:
SereneLife Premium 10′5 iSUP is an all-around. What this means is that this board is suitable for many areas of SUP to some degree while not exactly being perfectly suitable for any of them. It would be most suitable for recreational paddling in calmer waters though.

Construction:
SereneLife Premium 10′5 SUP is inflatable. That means it’s filled with air by pumping it into the board via the valve located at the rear of the board. As you can imagine, it being inflatable makes the board much easier to travel with and to store as it takes up less room and is lighter than a hard board. However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t as solid when inflated properly. The package comes with a repair kit which includes a valve wrench with which you may want to tigthen the valve itself from time to time as it tend to come loose over time. Recommended max PSI is 15.

Length:
SereneLife Premium 10′5 iSUP is 10 feet and 5 inches long long. It’s a little longer than a typical all-around. This makes the board suitable even for the little heavier/taller paddlers.

Width:
It’s 30 inches wide. Wider boards feel more stable. 30 inches however is not too narrow, but it’s also not wide enough to not put any effort into keeping yourself stable on this board. Once you’ve practiced some, it will feel stable, but at the beginning it’s gonna take some getting used to.

Thickness:
SereneLife Premium 10′5 iSUP is 6 inches thick. Thicker boards feel more stable and sturdy. 6 inches is rather typical thickness for inflatable all-arounds.

Weight:
This iSUP is lightweight weighing just 19.6 pounds. This allows you to take it almost anywhere along with you.

Weight Capacity:
This iSUP is able to carry a paddler weighing up to 275 pounds max. Though I would argue that the ideal paddler weight for this board is around 240 pounds or less due to its design (length in particular).

Materials:
SereneLife Premium 10′5 iSUP board has a drop-stitch core material surrounded by a fabric of 2 layers (most if not all other boards have 1 layer of fabric) and then your typical single layer PVC connected by the PVC tape at the rails. And of course the EVA foam deck pad on the very top where one can stand on.

What Is SereneLife Premium 10’5 Inflatable Paddle Board Made of?

SereneLife Premium 10’5 iSUP board is made of:

  • single layer PVC material, but…
  • double layer fabric

It starts with a drop-stitch core material that is surrounded by a fabric holding the drop-stitches together. Around the first layer of that fabric is another layer of fabric. Around the second layer of fabric is a single layer PVC material with an extra 2 layers of PVC tape at the rails connecting the top and bottom half of the single PVC layer around the fabric together.

A single-layer construction is not ideal, but for average sized paddlers casually wanting to enjoy the activity it’s close to ideal. Although the second layer of fabric improves SereneLife 10′ iSUP’s sturdiness, it is, still, when a considerably larger paddler happens to use this board – the board might not support such weights very well and one might feel some flex, especially the more choppier the water.
