Quroc 13' Design Notes
“Whilst ticking all the performance boxes required by a tourer, at 13’ long and 31” wide, the Qi All Water Touring Inflatable Paddle Board also provides an extremely stable and comfortable touring platform. The board’s parallel outline is deliberately maintained into a wide nose area to improve stability and load carrying options.
The outcome is great glide speed, combined with the perfect balance of stability, comfort, manoeuvrability and flexibility which make the Qi All Water 13′ the perfect board for general touring through to full multi-day expeditions.

THE FIRST UK BRAND TO COMPLETE THE YUKON 1000
Bought it as first board, tostado novice. Did research and this board made it to my top three list! Do not regret buying it at all-great board, kit and even greater price when you look at the items you get for it. It is stable on river or sea! Tackles rapids extremely well as well! Carries me, kit and most of the time my son on it too. Has lots of handles and bungees to strap anything you might need. It is bulky as expected, awkward to carry as I’m a shorty, but it is sooooo light! And don’t get me started on the carbon paddle which is light and comfortable. Oh did I mention velcro holders that everyone envy? They are great to keep water bottles to hand. Really worthy investment.
Two friends already had the Quroc 13 so I watch the reviews online and the feedback was excellent. Was encouraged by another firmed who also purchased a Quroc board. So glad I made the purchase. Excellent value for money. The paddle and extras great quality. On the water the board is very stable on river and sea. It’s really helped my confidence and improved my paddle experiences.
Great service and professional advice. Andrew took the time to understand my needs an then recommend the appropriate board. Looking at buying a second board from them now.
I was looking for a board a bit quicker and easier to paddle than my current 11’4 board. Was a bit worried about going straight down to the slimmer 12’6 so after a long conversation with them about my uses for the board and what I really wanted to get out of it, decided to go 13’.
I just love it. Although it’s not quite as stable as my previous board it’s still stable enough and within an hour I was back to my old self confident hopping on and off it again. Glides much better than previous board and the quality of the Quroc is great. More handles makes much easier for me, I use it on the Thames and go through many locks which we have to lift it out and in all the time, it’s made it a doddle now.
The paddle itself, O M G, so light. I did a three day event and this made such a difference not constantly lifting a heavier paddle in and out the water all day long.
All in all I seriously cannot recommend these boards enough, just brilliant.
