In this product review, we'll be discussing Global Surf Industries Adventure All Rounder board for performance and features, as well as the reasons why it's the best paddle board for your next water adventure.
How We Chose Our FAV Stand Up Paddle Board
Using first hand experience, and a lot of research about different types of boards both online and with local Surf Shops, our editor, Deborah Clarke, was ready to graduate from one of her kids paddle boards to one of her own.
"As someone new to paddling, at the age of 60, I was looking for a paddle board that would glide through the water a little easier than the heavy Pelican board I learned to paddle with." says Deborah. One of her neighbors had a fiberglass board, one that was lighter and seemed to glide along the water more easily.
But, Deborah was looking for something even more. She wanted a board that she could easily carry from her lakefront home to the water's edge, all-by-herself.
After further research and help from a local SURF Shop, she found the perfect board - the Adventure All-Rounder! This SUP is lightweight and easy to carry with an ergonomic grip, plus the soft-padded surface ensures a comfortable and enjoyable ride. She was so excited to explore the waters of Lake Huron with this new board and has found it perfect for both calm and slightly wavy conditions!
With its tough MX construction, enhanced stability, and innovative features, Deborah is happy to share everything she loves about this new board.
Let the adventure begin!
The Adventure Paddle Boards - All Rounder
As the name suggests, the Adventure Paddleboarding All Rounder Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) does it all. This is a very functional SUP suited to flat water cruising, but it’s also versatile enough to take in the surf.
Available in multiple sizes to suit paddlers of all weights and ages, this is an affordable SUP that’s rich in design features and performance.
We love this paddle board (it's our editors Fav), so let's take a closer look at what makes this one of the best paddle boards around.
The generous width through the middle, balanced outline, and the low rocker keeps the board sitting really flat on the water. This stability instills a feeling of confidence for all paddlers, and a simple flat-to-double concave bottom also helps the board accelerate quickly and maintain amazing glide and flow in flat water. Subtle lift through the tail allows the board to maneuver smoothly when riding waves.
The generous size-to-volume ratio is a key element in making this one of our most popular SUP models. With loads of buoyancy, boxy high volume rails, and a functional shape, the All Rounder has great usability across a range of conditions.
Comfortable cavity handle for convenient transportation to and from the water. The deck traction with back foot kick and arch bar feels soft and prevents slipping off the board, and there’s additional nose plugs for creating a forward storage zone, plus a bonus nose plug for mounting a GoPro.
The well-balanced single fin provides a high single-side stoke rate on flat water; this is great for beginner paddlers because they don’t need to switch sides as much. Add fins to the FCS II side plugs to enhance turning and control when riding waves.
The All Rounder is super stable, making it easy to jump to your feet, start paddling, and within minutes most paddlers find they can comfortably turn and maneuver the board. Representing great value for money in our Molded Epoxy (MX) construction, the versatility of the All Rounder shouldn’t be underestimated

FAQs about Paddle Boards and Paddleboarding
Are you still curious about paddle boarding? Whether you’re a first-time paddler or an experienced enthusiast, our FAQ section will help answer all your questions! From the type of paddle board you should get to safety tips when out on the water – we’ve got you covered. Read on for more information and advice about stand up paddleboarding.
- What kind of paddle board should I get?
The type of board you choose will depend on your skill level and the type of paddling you’ll be doing. If you’re just getting started with stand up paddleboarding, an all-rounder SUP like the All Rounder SUP from Global Surf Industries is a great option. It is designed to handle both flat water and waves, making it perfect for all skill levels.
- How much do solid paddle boards cost?
The price of solid paddle boards can vary quite significantly depending on the type and quality of the board. Generally speaking, an all-round SUP like the All Rounder SUP from Global Surf Industries starts at around $995 - $1095 USD – making it an excellent value for money purchase.
- How do I store my paddle board?
Generally speaking, you should look for a dry, cool and dark place to store your boards when not in use. You can also wax or use a UV-resistant Paddle Board covering to protect your board from sun damage. Personally I've added a bracket on the wall in our lower recreation room and it hangs all winter like a piece of art! In the end how much storage space you give your board inside is up to you.
- How do I transport my paddle board?
SUPs are large and bulky, so transporting them can be a challenge! It is best to use a roof rack or trailer designed specifically for solid paddle boards. Alternatively, you can also opt for an inflatable SUP which will make transportation much easier.
- How do I care for my paddle board?
Taking good care of your board can help to extend its life and ensure it performs well in the water. After paddling, make sure to rinse off your board with fresh water and let it dry before storing away in a cool, dark place. Additionally, wax or use a UV-resistant Paddle Board covering to protect rigid boards from sun damage.
- Are paddle boards safe?
Stand up paddleboarding is generally considered to be an inherently safe activity, however the safety of the paddler should always take priority. Before heading out on the water, make sure you have the right knowledge and skills, as well as the right equipment. Wearing a personal flotation device is also highly recommended when paddling in open water, and always check local weather/tide conditions before heading out. With the proper knowledge and preparation, you can enjoy stand up paddleboarding safely and responsibly!
- When should I consider a solid paddle board over an inflatable board?
If you’re looking for a board that can handle more advanced paddling techniques then an inflatable paddle board may not be the best choice. Inflatable paddle boards are best suited for recreational paddling in flatwater, but an inflatable SUP doesn’t offer the same performance and stability as solid boards. Additionally, if you want to use your board for surfing or whitewater SUP then you’ll need a solid board for safety reasons.
The All Rounder SUP from Global Surf Industries is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a solid board that can handle both flatwater and waves. It’s lightweight yet durable construction makes it easy to transport and store, while its high-performance design allows you to take on any challenge that comes your way.
- What is the biggest difference between a SUP board and an inflatable SUP Board?
The biggest difference between the two is in their construction and performance. Traditional SUP boards are constructed from a solid material such as foam or fiberglass, whereas an inflatable SUP board is made of PVC fabric that can be inflated to create a rigid structure. In terms of performance, a solid board will generally offer better tracking and stability than an inflatable board. Additionally, an inflatable board may be more prone to dings and scratches than solid paddle boards, so if you’re looking for superior performance then a traditional SUP board is the way to go.
- What are the best dimensions for a touring board?
If you’re looking for solid boards that are suitable for long distance paddling, then we recommend the Adventure All Rounder SUP from Global Surf Industries. It's available in three lengths, so you can get a longer board, and it has a 32" width which makes it perfect for touring over longer distances. The added length also helps with tracking and stability in choppy waters, making it an excellent choice for experienced paddlers looking for more adventure.
What safety tips should I be thinking about as a beginner paddleboarder?
When starting out with stand up paddleboarding, safety should always be your number one priority. Here are some key tips to help keep you safe:
1. Make sure you have the right knowledge and skills before heading out on the water.
2. Wear a personal flotation device at all times when paddling in open water.
3. Check local weather/tide conditions before heading out.
4. Always tell someone where you will be and when you plan to return.
5. Be mindful of other boaters, paddlers, swimmers and wildlife in the area.
6. Stay within your limits – don’t take risks beyond what you are comfortable with or experienced in.
7. Bring a waterproof phone and/or whistle in case of an emergency – you never know when you might need help!
8. Make sure your paddle board is properly maintained and waxed to keep it performing well on the water.
9. Lastly, always take breaks if you feel tired or overwhelmed; enjoy yourself but stay safe!
