Get this SUP board
This one is a real premium quality board. It comes at a higher price point, but it sure is justified.
Also, in the package, there are included additional accessories that add to the total value.
Hydrus sup characteristics
But first things first – let us look at board dimensions and included things:
- length: 12’6″
- thickens: 6 inches
- width: 31 inches
- weight: 27lbs
- paddle: 3 piece adjustable
- pump: double action hand pump
- extra accessories: repair kit, backpack, and a Hydrus board tech hat
Used materials and durability
This board is a bit heavier then some others you might be looking at, but there is a reason behind that.
Firstly it’s longer than a standard medium board.
And secondly, there is double reinforced sidewall construction that, at the same time, makes it way more durable and long-lasting.
Sure, as it’s inflatable, you still need to worry about sharp edges, etc. obstacles that might damage the board.
But it sure can take on a lot more than a standard medium priced board or especially cheap sup.
Material quality is just excellent. Boards exterior is made of ultra-high grade PVC. And also, thanks to the build quality and construction, it can handle a maximum pressure rating of 27psi.
That is a respectable number right there that many other inflatable stand up paddle boards can’t compete with.
When fully inflated, this sup will be really stable and rigid.
Stability on SUP
This board has a very decant rocker on front and will handle choppy waters with ease.
Also, the form itself makes it excellent for touring. Long-distance travel will be fun for sure.
And if racing is your thing, then this board can also, to some extent, be used for that.
Hydrus sup has a single fin design. Of course, it’s detachable. You can pick another one if the one that comes with the sup does not work for you, or you don’t feel entirely comfortable with it.
First, you’ll need to go for a test ride to get the feel of it.
Anyway, for the first time paddler out of the box fin will work just fine. So don’t think that much about it.
Once you get some more experience, you’ll know what to look for.
The paddle is adjustable and consists of 3 fiberglass pieces, and it comes with an ergonomic handle.
It’s really light if you compare it to aluminum one. Like the board, this paddle itself is also of premium quality.
It’s not only light due to its technology, but it also feels really sturdy.
You may prefer a single piece paddle, but this one that comes with the sup is of really excellent quality and can easily compete with single-piece ones.
Just give it a try. You may stick with the one that came with the board.
Pump and backpack
Finally, as extra, there is also a hand pump and a backpack. The pump itself is of good quality and will inflate the paddle board quite fast.
The backpack, on the other hand, is a piece that could be of better quality and more comfortable.
But if you don’t need to carry your inflatable sup around a lot, it’s sort of okay. Otherwise find another bag.
So far, it sounds just perfect, but what about issues?
Sure there are some.
For example, this inflatable sup has fewer D-rings than many other standard boards. This could be troublesome if you needed to secure more things on it for a longer ride.
But that’s a call you need to make for yourself. If they are enough or you’ll need more.
Highly recommended premium inflatable stand up paddle board that is made from ultra-high-quality materials and includes extra accessories.
Only offset could be the fewer D-rings if you need to secure quite a lot of things. But all in all – a great product that is highly recommended.
