Do you want a budget-friendly paddle board that works great for beginner paddlers… and dogs? The Bestway Hydro Force SUP has a wide shape with large traction pads that make it easy to learn and balance.
Advantages of the Hydro-Force Huaka’i Tech:
1. This SUP Can Save You Money:
First of all, this inflatable SUP only costs about $325. Therefore, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a board that everyone in the family can use.
2. Heavy Duty Board Construction Helps this Board Last Longer:
Second, the Hydro Force is made of heavy duty PVC with a unique Tritech surface material. In other words, the strong, durable material can last many years, even with frequent use.
Plus, the Tritech protects the paddleboard from UV rays. Thus, it extends the life of your board even more.
3. The Hydro Force Feels Stiff and Rigid Like a Hard Board:
Third, the Huaka’i Tech has a drop-stitch construction on the interior or the SUP. This helps the board keep its rigid shape, which in turn helps with stability and balance.
Note: In addition, you can inflate this board up to 15 PSI, which contributes to its stiff feel. When paddling on choppy water or waves, this also make the board bounce less and glide more.
4. Inflatable SUPs are Cheap and Easy to Travel With:
Fourth, the inflatable design makes this paddleboard easy to travel with. Plus, the SUP package includes a large, heavy-duty backpack for carrying your board PLUS all of your paddling gear.
5. SUP Package Includes Free Bonuses:
Fifth, the Bestway SUP includes a hand pump, the deluxe backpack and a removable tacking fin. In addition, you get a couple of bonuses: a coiled leash and a handy repair kit (typically worth between $30-50 together).
Disadvantages of the Hydro Force Paddleboard:
1. The Hydro Force SUP Doesn’t Include a Paddle:
The Hydro Force SUP doesn’t come with a paddle. Therefore, you’ll have to spend extra money to buy your own.
Having said that, this gives you the option to pick out a paddle that you like (or save money on a cheap brand).
For example, this cheap SUP paddle only costs about $35. Plus, it can adjust in length for people of different heights, and it comes apart into 3 pieces for easy travel.
2. The Wider Shape Makes this Paddleboard Ride Slower:
Typically, faster SUPs have a narrow, long shape with a pointed nose. However, this board has a wide shape, a shorter length and a rounded nose.
Note: Consequently, this SUP won’t have a fast glide. Plus, it will take more effort to move through the water. That said, who wants to go fast anyway?
In summary: the Hydro Force inflatable SUP makes a decent family-friendly choice that can last many years of use. Not to mention, your pet will probably love it.
The SUP also includes some useful features on the deck, like the paddle holder and the bungee storage cords. Also, you might not have noticed the D-ring on the nose of the board which comes in handy for tying up to a dock or boat.
