"Took the XPS Quad Fish out on a sloppy 2ft day and had a blast. It's well proportioned tail helps it turn like a short board and it's full body gives you the drive you need to make it threw the flat sections. There is a slight rocker in the tail and nose that help you attack the lip. The perfect board for you summer time surf. I'd recommend it for a beginner or a pro.... And for the price it's a no-brainer."

"I just wanted to write and thank you for a great experience in dealing with your company. I spoke with Mark several times over the phone and he was very patient with me and answered all my questions. This was my first surfboard and was a little nervous to make this purchase over the internet, especially without seeing the board in person first. It was everything I hoped for and more. I had that thing waxed and in the water within an hour of it being delivered and have been out quite a few times since. Love the board!!!! Thank you for being a company that still believes in customer service. I would definitely recommend Isle Surfboards to anyone."

"This board (9’2 Performance Longboard) rips; it’s a high performance machine. I've been surfing over 40 years and this is one of the best long boards I've ever ridden and you can still stand on the nose forever. Had it out at Rincon on a 3 foot day and it blazed, long nose rides in the cove and very outstanding at the indicator. Add it to your quiver"

"After having taught thousands of new surfers on Isle Surfboards I can truly say they are top notch boards that perform well and hold up great. The bang for your buck is unmatched as is their friendliness and small local surf shop feel. Thanks for the support and look forward to another great summer!"

Knowing the volume of your sup is important in that it relates to your weight and what amount of volume is required to support your weight.
The metric system tells us: 1 liter of volume will float 1kg of weight.
However the amount of volume needed is relative to weight & skills. Thus we multiply a Skill Level Factor x our Weight in kilograms to get a recommended Volume in liters.
Skill Level Factor for Beginner = 2.0
Skill Level Factor for Intermediate = 1.7
Skill Level Factor for advanced = 1.3
Use this simple formula to find your target volume
(your weight in lbs x .44) x Skill Level Factor = Target Volume (Liters)
Example: You are a beginner looking at boards and you weight 195lbs. What volume is right for you?
(195lbs x .44) x 2 = 175
Board Volume (Liters) = 175
If you are a beginner rider and you weigh 195lbs. Your board should have a volume of at least 175 Liters to support your weight.
We use the boards volume to compute how much weight each board can support for a given skill level.
These are general suggestions and other factors such a width and thickness determine how the board
will support your weight.
As an example:
The 9'6 Classic has 127 liters of volume.
The suggested weight chart shows:
As a beginner your weight should not exceed 141 lbs
As an intermediate rider your weight should not exceed 166 lbs
As an advanced rider your weight should not exceed 217 lbs
