AQUA SPIRIT Barracuda iSUP 10'6 long Inflatable Stand up Paddle Board Kayak Package for Adult Beginners / Experts with Kayak Seat, Pump, Paddle, Backpack, Leash, Kayak Blade, Changing Mat, Go-Pro Mount & Much More, 2 Years Of Warranty, 2022 Model
There's not really a recognised brand of SUP (that I could find anyway) so I went on the golden ratio for beginners of 10ft 6 x 32-33 x 5-6. This fit the bill so I purchased. I have to say it's more than exceeded my expectations. It fits in the back of the car and can accommodate two reasonable sized adults. It's very stable and moves through the water much faster than I expected. The adjustable paddle is excellent - I was able to do this standing on the board after an hour, it's that simple. Pumping it up is easy until you get to about 8 PSI. After that it gets progressively harder. It's fine for an adult with some weight behind them but, for instance, my 12 year old son put his whole body weight behind it around 10 PSI and it didn't budge an inch. To give you an idea of how long it takes to set up, we parked the car, walked to the waters edge, pumped it up, put on our wet suits and were in the water within 30 mins. I think that's pretty fast (and that was our first time). Overall I'm really very pleased with this SUP and look forward to using it more and more throughout the summer and beyond.
Excellent paddle board. Inflating with the hand pump is not a hardship. Moves well I the water, stays straight. I really love the seat and adaption for kayaking - to go further and faster. Bought direct from the company. Really excellent customer service and super prompt delivery. Took it everywhere and it really made my summer
Solid board, came with all advertised accessories and have had no issues with it. Taken it out the past couple of months at least once a week. Quick and easy to set up and pack away. The ability to clip on the seat and use the double paddle and the board as a kayak is great if the water is a little too choppy to stand. Would definitely recommend.
Great entry level board for the price.
Brilliant board for the price! The single action pump does work and you can get the board up to 15psi, it was a bit of a work out on the arms but not as bad as I thought it might be from reading other reviews. Just take a few breaks and you will have it up in 10 minutes. The board feels and looks solid, accessories ok but not as high quality as the board itself. I am 15.5 stone and 6’2 and had no concerns regarding the board sinking or not taking my weight. Started on my knees but did stand for about 2 minutes! I was lucky enough to purchase this package at £269 so do keep your eyes peeled as the price tends to jump around a bit. Final bit of advice, when deflating do not push the valve pin down too quickly as you will probably blow the valve, just release the air slowly. Great purchase, have fun!
Great item and service
I've been searching for a while for my first paddle board. Wanted one that could convert to a kayak. This one came with seat and adaptable paddle just the job. Item was as described and is a good quality product. All items described were included. The pump is good quality and board inflates quickly. It is had work getting the last psi or so. The only thing was the package contained to identical paddle ends therefore I could not assemble the kayak paddle. I emailed and got a response a day or so later apologising for the error and advising a replacement would be sent out. Two days later a complete new paddle arrived. Brilliant. Great board, great service.
Excellent value for money
Once inflated it looks amazing, comes with the leash, seat to change into a kayak, changing bag, waterproof phone case. Brilliant
Birthday present to my shocked husband. Easy to blow up and looked very stable. He was a beginner but managed to stay up on the board for twenty minutes (the sea was calm). He loved it! Planning to get another for the family.
Wonderful and Quality item, easy to store at home.
Size is true, easy to set up and a quality product which is being enjoyed by all the family. Provided you do so in a certain way all items will fit back in the carry bag too. Only comment would be straps on carry bag are a little thin and are uncomfortable to wear as a result. Would recommend padding out if you plan to carry on back for more than a few minutes.
The whole Paddleboard set is great
Paddleboard is fantastic and I have now been out on it 6 or 7 times. The board itself is brilliant and hasn't let me down yet. The paddle works great and does the job. The pump works really well too and only takes max. 10 mins to pump up fully (only downside is the pump makes a squeaking noise every time I pump so will definitely need to sort that out). It came with the additional extras such as the repair kit and waterproof phone holder, but I have yet to use these so can't comment. I am around 5'8/5'11 and this board is a great size. The width is perfect for me too as I have average balance, however having a slightly wider board compared to others is handy to build my skills. A strap on the bag snapped on one of my journeys which did make the day a nightmare but after contacting the reseller they sent out a new bag within 2 days!! I was very surprised and pleased.
Fantastic package all you need to get started
Arrived a day earlier then expected so was happy with that. Exactly as it says whole kit to get going. First inflate was one **** of a work out but then the second time I inflated it I had quick breaks in between. Ideal starter kit and all round package glad I went with this one. Never done paddle boarding before and did end up in the water a few times but second outing came back dry. Would recommend and looking forward to getting out more on it.
