User Experience

Performance and use: When it comes to performance and use, every surfer that has tried the Roc 10’6” hasn’t been unsatisfied. The product has been purchased from Amazon over 400 times, and it has been tried and tested by thousands of beginners and professionals as well. It can be used for recreational maneuvering on smooth water, but also surfing on wild waves. It has been ranked as one of the best stand up paddle boards in 2019.

With its previously mentioned dimensions, anyone experienced in water sports will agree on the fact that the board is incredibly stable. Due to its 6 inch thickness, it’s nearly impossible for the board to be submerged underwater, except if one is past the weight limit of 275 pounds.

There have been cases where people take their pets with them on a fun ride, so there’s no need to worry about space as well. A 32 inch width should not be underestimated.

The Roc 10’6” is an excellent choice for both beginners and professionals. There are many cases where the Roc is surfer’s first choice. Professionals also benefit from the moderate complexity of the board, such as its dimensions, and options when it comes to maneuvering.

Design and construction: Props should be given to the manufacturers of the Roc 10’6” for its amazing design and forge. The board is extremely well assembled, both externally and internally as well.

For external design, its best to see it for yourself to be assured. It comes in a variety of colors, so it you will always be able to choose the perfect one for you. The design is simple and soothing, and it’s really difficult to find an imperfection in it.

When it comes to surfing, the board is quite comfortable, allowing you to feel the softness of the design on your feet, yet at the same time feel the firmness of the compact and stable build of the Roc.

Considering the internal design, the military grade PVC material makes the board extremely durable, stable and compact. The board is capable of taking all kinds of hits, from mountain rocks to fall tests. Generally, there haven’t been dissatisfied riders with the quality of the design.

Setup: The board is not at all difficult to set up, and even beginners would easily grasp the point of it. Literally the only con that this board has is the time required to pump it. For it to be stable, the Roc 10’6” needs to have a pressure per square inch inflation of 15 PSI. Hand pumping it to this side can be a burden for some, and it can take quite some time to get used to. A proposed solution is to purchase an electric pump which easily cuts the inflation time in half, but it could cost you a small fortune.

Once the board has been inflated, it is not at all difficult to set it up and get on the water. You should attach the 4 fins in their place, and then the D-rings as well. Once this has been done, you are prepared for the ride of your life

Portability: Since the board is inflatable, it comes down to a smaller size when deflated. This is why the board is incredibly easy to transport. Its owners praise the Roc for its convenience and portability.

  Pros:

  • One of the best-looking inflatable stand up paddle boards on the market.
  • Extremely tough, durable and compact design.
  • Strong PVC body made out of military grade material
  • Comes with a free package, extremely useful for beginners and professionals alike
  • Incredibly smooth and simple to maneuver.
  • Transport and storage is a piece of cake

  Cons:

  • Difficult to hand pump, can take quite some time to get used to. An electric pump is recommended.

Globo Surf Overview

All in all, it’s easy to conclude that the Roc 10’6” is a perfect paddle board for almost any surfer. Whether you are new to water sports, or you have been a part of them for years, you should not think twice about surfing with this one. What we can conclude is that the Roc is one of the best looking inflatable stand up paddle boards on the market, and at the same time, due to its rigid military PVC body, it is incredibly durable and tough.
Surfing with an inflatable paddle board such as the Roc 10’6” is an incredibly enjoyable experience. This makes it a lot lighter, smoother and definitely easier to control than non-inflatable boards. Also, when it comes to transportation and storing, it’s not at all difficult unlike other boards.
Literally the only con this board has is the fact that inflatable boards have to be pumped. Since this board comes with a free hand pump, people usually default to hand pumping. However, this can become a burden after a couple of weeks, and it will take you quite so time to pump it. The advice given by most professionals is to purchase an electric pump and save yourself from the time and effort.
