Aqua Marina Vapor iSUP Description

The Aqua Marina Vapor by Aqua Marina is a fantastic inflatable SUP. Its dimensions make it a very steady board, ideal for riders with all kinds of experience levels, but especially for first-time paddlers. It is very easy to use as its wide-style design makes it fast and perfect for still or small wave waters – yet is fast for its size. The surface texture feels comfortable against your feet and the heat embossed deck with honeycomb grooves provides great traction.

The Vapor is made with double-wall drop stitch PVC technology, which makes it more durable. It can endure a little bit of rough handling, and unlike hard boards, you don’t have to worry about chipping and dings. This board can support light-weight riders to bigger ones of up to 253 lbs / 115 kg. The Aqua Marina Vapor comes equipped with a 20 PSI hand pressure pump, a 3-piece sport paddle and 3 detachable fins. It also comes with a bag perfect for keeping your equipment together in one place so you can hit the water right away!

The Vapor is great for paddlers with limited storage. If you have used a hard board in the past you know they can be difficult to store, but when rolled up, the Vapor takes up a very small space, so storage is absolutely no problem. This Inflatable SUP package is lightweight and easy to carry, it fits in the boot of your car and gives you the freedom to go just about anywhere. Use it at the beach or in a river.

Setting it up

The Vapor is great for adventuring, getting a good core workout or fishing, whether you are solo, with a pet or with friends and family. Once you get to your
destination, just unpack your equipment, lay the board flat and install the fins, then connect your pump, it only takes a few minutes to inflate; make sure to check the pressure gage, around 15 to 20 PSI’s is the right measure so the surface of your board is nice and stable.

Next, assemble the paddles and you are ready to go. You can use the three fins at once if you are a beginner, but as you get better you can easily remove the ones at the sides. The onboard storage includes stainless steel D-rings on tail to connect a safety leash and elastic bungee cords to carry your sunglasses, a drink, or whatever essentials you need for the ride.

All finished? Go ahead and rinse your equipment for better durability, roll up your board, put everything back in the bag and you’re done.

Conclusion

Easy to store and carry, light, stable yet fast for its size, the Aqua Marina Vapor is a great inflatable SUP board to use in flat water or small waves. The Vapor has a mix of stability, good performance, convenience and durability, not to mention it looks great! Great value at an affordable price.
