FAQI’m looking for a basic board for SUP fitness and fishing. Is the Aqua Marina Vapor a good iSUP board for that? Absolutely. As long as you aren’t a large paddler, the Vapor will work fine for fishing, SUP fitness, and recreational flat water paddling. What is the recommended PSI for the Aqua Marina Vapor SUP? It’s recommended that you inflate the board to 15 PSI. Will I damage the Vapor if I bring my dog out for a paddle? Not at all. The heavy duty PVC outer skin is extremely tough and the majority of the board’s deck surface is covered by the EVA foam traction pad. Just remember to bring along a dog life jacket anytime you take your pup for a paddle — very important! Does the included aluminum paddle float? Yes, the paddle does float but it’s a very basic paddle designed for beginners. If you’re looking for something that is lighter and designed to deliver better performance, check out the new Aqua Marina Carbon Pro and Carbon Guide paddles.
Final ThoughtsOverall, the Aqua Marina Vapor SUP is a decent choice for newcomers to the stand up paddleboarding scene. This board isn’t a good choice for larger paddlers as it’s only 4″ thick with a total volume of 198 liters, but it will work fine for lighter individuals. Heavier paddlers who are budget-minded would be better off spending a few extra dollars and going with a board like Tower’s Adventurer SUP. We like the fact that Aqua Marina includes everything you need to get started, and the 1 year warranty gives some added peace of mind to the purchase. If you’re a lighter weight paddler and are looking for a cheap inflatable SUP to get your feet wet with, the Aqua Marina Vapor is certainly a board worth considering.
