A next-level, all-around experience.

Preferred For

The All-around 10’ Ultra is a well-performing paddleboard, especially for intermediate paddlers. Intermediate riders prefer it as it ensures both the speed and stability balance intermediate paddlers look for.

Performance

The All-around 10’ Ultra is well known for its performance both in terms of stability and speed. Nevertheless, the 10’ Ultra speed and tracking are the best performing features of the paddleboard.

Suitable Locations

The new and stable ULTRA range paddleboards are your perfect companion for exploring every kind of water sport. Whether cruising a canal, exploring a river in the Rockies, or surfing along the coast, the All-around 10’ Ultra has it covered.

Stiffness test

The All-around 10’ Ultra had us amazed with the stiffness test

Like the Blackfin CX Ultra, we took the stiffness test by setting the 10’ Ultra on two sawhorses placed eight ft. apart. We then put 150 pounds in the middle of the board to measure its deflection. It deflected only an inch from its original state.

The stiffness of the 10’ Ultra is super impressive.

How it performs on the water

The All-around 10’ Ultra is impressive in testing. The paddleboard is fast, tracks well, and is best suited for quick paddle sessions despite your chosen location. The extra on-deck storage also makes it a befitting paddleboard for long trips. The 10’ All-Around Ultra is highly suitable for smaller, intermediate paddlers. The 10’ Ultra is a sporty and agile paddleboard for intermediate paddlers that may want to push its size range.

The 10’ Ultra tested to be one of the most maneuverable amongst the Ultra series while still nearing the speed and tracking abilities of the Blackfin CX Ultra. It was concluded to be a few seconds slower than the high-performing Blackfin CX Ultra.

The 10’ Ultra showcases significant improvement in performance in every facet of testing compared with the original 10’ All-around from iRocker, except for the stability. It is not as stable as the original 10’ All-Around.

Weight Capacity

The declared weight capacity of the All-Around 10’ Ultra is 260 lbs. This means it is suitable for lighter paddlers and solo paddling experiences. The board is specially designed for intermediate solo paddlers on the lighter side of weight. To our utmost joy, the weight capacity can also be adjusted if one is an experienced paddler by reworking their stance and balancing their way out.

The board’s weight capacity might not be much of an issue if you are experienced with paddleboards. It can be adjusted by a few pounds if you are balanced correctly and understand the art of paddling in-depth.

The All-Around 10’ Ultra is perfect for:
