McConks Go Explore 14i Grande Tourer (GT) inflatable touring paddle board | The ultimate adventure SUP board

From: Original price was: £715.99.Current price is: £625.00.


Your ultimate paddle board adventure partner.


McConks has worked hard on our new 2024 designs. Paddle board stability, rigidity and carrying capacity, this iSUP is aimed at progressive paddlers who want to carry lots of weight, in variable and challenging conditions, as efficiently as possible, and keeping your gear safe and stable. The redesigned 14i GT inflatable paddleboard is a purebred touring machine.

Proven paddle board performance.

The performance-driven 32″ wide board has a longitudinal profile and waterline that promotes glide and efficiency. The speed release hard tail and parallel fin boxes reduce drag, and the industry leading V-nose technology and rocker ensure that the nose cuts through chop and swell with confidence.

Offering unbelievable stability in the toughest of conditions, the Go Explore 14’i GT paddle board is made of 6″ thick MXW (1) drop stitch material offering unrivalled rigidity to weight ratio.  And the waterline and rocker of this paddle board has been designed to maximise balance and minimise the impact of wind.

What you get.

With a generous 412L of volume, this touring inflatable paddleboard is perfect for heavier riders and load-carrying.

The 2+1 fin system has been slightly tweaked from the 2023 model to improve efficiency and speed, and unlike most touring boards, gives you the ability to maintain tracking and stability even in shallow river environments.

As adventurers, we know how important it is to be able to carry the board, and with multiple handles, this board is designed for access and egress in the most difficult of  environments.  And with a surfeit of D Rings, this board can carry enough gear for unsupported multi day adventures.

As always, we know our gear has been built for adventure, and is made to last. So is fully backed with a solid no-quibble 5-year warranty.

Who is it for?

If you’re a touring paddler who wants a board that can take on all challenges and all environments, no compromises, then this is board for you.

If you’re a beginner paddleboarder wanting the ultimate compromise of stability and cruising, then this is the board for you.

If you’re an experienced paddler wanting a touring board with excellent stability and enough storage and lashing points to cope with multi day unsupported adventures.

This is the board for you.

Sustainability and ethics

At McConks, sustainability and ethics aren’t just marketing hype.  They’re at the very heart of everything we stand for.  As a family of two environmental scientists and two young eco activists, we haven’t flown on holidays for over 5 years. So we practice what we preach as a family, as a well as a company.

We know the environmental cost of plastic, so wherever possible we remove plastic from our supply chain.  Where we still need to use plastic, we try to only use reclaimed or recycled plastic.  But when it comes to the material for our boards, only virgin plastic is good enough to make the boards strong enough and durable enough to last for at least as long as their five year warranty. And our very low warranty rate is proof of the pudding.

All of our products are packaged plastic free.

We maintain a well stocked repair shop, where everything from valves, bungees, fin boxes, paddle clasps and a whole lot more, can be purchased to keep your board going for as long as possible.


New for 2024, we are also offering a free MOT with SUP services in the third year of your boards’ life to make sure everything is performing as it should be.

All good things must, eventually, come to an end.  And at the end of a boards life, all of our board fittings are fully recoverable.  Sadly, the boards themselves aren’t recoverable because they contain a mix of materials.  However, even if you don’t think you can repair your board, we’re sure that it can be repaired enough for a second life with a charitable cause.  So we offer a FREE END OF LIFE recovery, where if you ship the board to us, we will do everything we possibly can to keep that board in use.

Find out more about our sustainability and ethics here.

Premium paddle board technology at the right price

We don’t talk marketing BS.  We just make the best boards, with the right material, that does the least damage to environment, at the best price.  Find out more here.

If you find a cheaper board of a similar specification, then we can 100% guarantee that something has been compromised along the way.  Whether this be less effort spent in designing, poorer specified fittings (such as handles that detach or deckpads that lift), cheaper accessories, or, as is often the case, lower quality drop stitch and/or poor Quality Assurance (QA),  what you end with is a board that either is lower performance, or that simply doesn’t last as long.

As we keep saying, our boards really are made for adventure and built to last. You don’t see many other brand boards still being used in a commercial setting five years down the line!

Drop stitch material – we only use the very best, industry leading machine X Woven double skin fusion drop stitch across our entire range.  The same base material as Starboard, Gladiator Elite and a very small number of other brands.  This really is the best compromise between paddleboard stability and paddle board weight.

Rail technology – again, only the very best.  We join our drop stitch material together at the rail, then cover with one rail piece, and a second rail piece.  We use heat weld technology on all seams.

Handles – all of our handles are rated for 75kg of load.

D rings – all of our D-rings are rated for 75kg of load, and made from marine grade stainless steel.


How to store your paddle board 

To keep your board looking it’s best and to prevent the risk of transfer of invasive species, you should always rinse and dry all equipment before storing.

This also applies when moving from one waterbody to another. When packing away your board, lay it deck-up, place the pump across the nose, roll tightly, and secure with the strap.

If storing it rolled up, avoid putting excess pressure on the straps and store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight and frost.

It’s best to store the pump separately if possible. Alternatively, you can leave your board inflated, making sure it’s on a flat surface.

6 reviews for McConks Go Explore 14i Grande Tourer (GT) inflatable touring paddle board | The ultimate adventure SUP board

  1. Alan Macdonald-Brown

    I have been on a few overnight SUP adventures but the iSUP or Hardboard I already own didn’t fully deliver. After looking online for a number of months, reading various reviews I decided to ask on a McConk forum & the honesty of the community on there helped sway me. The 14’ tourer was the one I chose. I’ve used it for a few long days both with a lot of kit & also with nothing. It feels super stable & very strong. I can’t wait to use it for multi-day events as soon as possible! Great bit of kit & would recommend it & the McConk brand all day long! ??

  2. Charles Jenkins

    I have now had by Go Explore 14′ board for over 18months and have been truly delighted with it. I use it extensively on the Kennet & Avon Canal, River Avon around Bath, Cotswold Water Park and in Poole Harbour on the south coast. In all these locations it has proven a delight to paddle and navigate. I have invested in two dry bags for fore and aft storage for day and overnight expeditions and have both hand and electric car pumps for bankside inflation.

  3. Paul Hughes

    Exactly as described! This is a robust well designed board for the serious tourer. we were looking for multi day touring boards and came to Mcconks for them after being recommended by a friend. We have used these boards extensively in the past two years, day touring and multiple day unsupported coastal touring in Scotland and the Mediterranean . They have been repeatedly inflated , deflated stuffed in bags chucked in vehicles , loaded with drybags, ( and our dog) survived impromptu landing on rocky shorelines, roasted in 35 degree heat and used for protection from biting sub zero Scottish snow!storms!
    Quality kit ! we wanted boards we could have confidence in for our adventures , these SUPi’s have given us that in bucket loads.

  4. David Blakemore

    Absolutely love this board! So stable and such a pleasure to paddle!

  5. Charlie D. (verified owner)

    After using the old version of the 14ft tourer for the last three years, this is a much improved version all around. It feels different thanks to its slight V shaped bow which I personally think, through weight shift, also helps edge the board when turning. It also cleanly cuts through the water although not had it long enough to test the difference in improved efficiency against the old version. Both gear bungees front and back are improved and have quick release clasps helping ties down bags and kit on the deck. all in all, a very stable and efficient tourer that stands up to all conditions from smooth canals, faster rivers and exposed coastal journeys

  6. Timothy Edwards (verified owner)

    I’ve upgraded from the old MCconks 12.5 to the New 14 foot go explore .And when I first got on it was quicker more speed .When I stood up it was very stable and it really goes quick once you start paddleing .I like the new blue colour scheme also .
