      A:

      1:)Way easy to catch waves
      2:) don't notice the tail, but your glad you have that kick pad
      3:) pretty fun ride , dosent have much of a rail to set that's why you have to throw a rutter stoke to turn you on to the face. Does not turn as fast as surf board. So you have to be lined up towards the shore and look back ward to catch the set . But since your standing up its way easy!

    Q:

    i'm new to sup and just took this out for a test drive on a lake. tracking was a little wonky but thinking mostly due to my beginner paddling skills. i'm 5'7 / 155lbs and am thinking ahead about using this for ocean surfing with and without a paddle. i've yet to try the earl 4 but was wondering your recommendations based on my size and intended use. - thanks.

      A:

      The tracking issue could be in part due to the board's design. The shorter length gives the Tyrant good genes for ocean and river waves, but reduces its easy tracking ability. The Earl 4 will track better but its extra length will make it less responsive on waves. The Earl is the better all around of the two. If you'll be using the board mostly for ocean surfing, go with the Tyrant.

    Q:

    Do fins help in tracking .I will use mostly for surfing but I like the idea of training on the the board . I am familiar with the big earl and its tracking in the lake . thanks john.

      A:

      Yes, John, the main function of the fins is to help with tracking in flatter water. Since you're paddling on one side at a time the fins help counteract that torsional force.

    Could you surf the tyrant behind a boat

      A:

      If you are referring to towing it behind a power boat, I wouldn't recommend it. The handle on the front of the board, where you'd have to attach the tow rope, isn't designed for that stress.

    Q:

    I have the big earl (great purchase by the way) but looking for something for ocean surfing. Although I live in Colorado and will absolutely use it in rivers. Would there be any advantage to using the larger model even though I am below the weight limit of 190. (i weigh 170. )I will also share the board w my son who is even lighter. The big earl is great in the river and the lake but I really like to surf the ocean. Inflatables are just so easy to travel with I really want one for surf travel. I have found that hard boards are easier and much more responsive in waves and want something that will come close to that feel. Thank you

      A:

      The NRS Tyrant 4 Inflatable SUP Board is a great board for Paddle surfing
      in the Ocean but not regular surfing because the board is to wide ( so u
      can't use your arms). Perfect for rivers and lakes! Best in size, portable,
      short enough to maneuver.

      A:

      You and your son are well within the suggested weight range for the Tyrant. For a relative beginner at ocean surfing the more stable Czar will be the better choice. For someone more skilled the Tyrant will give better performance; it might present a steeper learning curve for the beginner. The Tyrant will give a closer feeling to a hard board.

      Patrick, check out the Bravo High-Pressure Pump, Item # 1706. Just set the pressure desired (up to 15 psi) and the pump does the rest.

    Q:

    I'm looking at getting either a Tyrant or a Czar...Im about 155lbs and I would really like to learn how to surf. Im running mostly class II and occasionally class III water also so I would like a board that is capable or river running as well. I am stepping down from a ~10'6" foot inflatable...which one of these would be better for me? I really like the idea of a bigger, burlier board but I still want to be able to surf and put some focus into that this year. Thanks for the advice!

      A:

      D Money, the Tyrant is good for folks up to 190 pounds, so unless you're planning on packing on gear it should be fine for you, for surfing and your river running. Have fun!

    I'm looking for an inflatable that I can use for lake cruising and boat wake surfing. Will this handle both?

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      This should do the job for you. With it's length it won't track quite as well as the longer boards but it comes with 9", 5" and 2" fins which will let you adjust to get the best combo for straight-ahead paddling. If you weigh more than 190 pounds you should instead choose the Czar.

      A:

      Jason, you'll get best performance out of the Tyrant with folks 190 pounds or less in weight. For larger paddlers, the Czar has similar lines, with extra flotation.

    Comments about NRS Tyrant 4 Inflatable SUP Board:

    I have had my Tyrant SUP for nearly a month. I keep thinking I'll find its strengths. I've used it in Rivers, Lakes and the Ocean and it seems as if it's not at home on any.
    If I had to guess, this board would be good for a standing river wave (period).
    It's too slow to catch typical 2'-5' ocean waves, and too slow for any fun on the lake. In a running river, the Tyrant is short, has too little volume and is a planning hull vs. a displacement hull to really get through white water comfortably. Once at a standing wave, it works good.
    I am returning the Tyrant for a refund.
