Measurements BESTWAY Hydro Force Aqua Journey
The BESTWAY Hydro Force Aqua Journey is 9ft long and 30” wide and 6” thick; it is definitely not considered a huge board but it is guaranteed to be an ideal option for several users out there.
The width factor is forever something that we have to appreciate about this; it is what makes them as safe and stable as they’re.
That being said, the BESTWAY Aqua Journey, although it might not strike you on length aspect, it’s really roomy for all different positions.
The company uses heavy-duty PVC material to make entire of their inflatable things but in a traditional method at all.
The BESTWAY Hydro Force Aqua Journey is a quite extremely unique board, along with its siblings, and that is because of the Tritech, the Inflatashield and the Fortech features.
The later is the dense polyester mesh and high PVC gauge.
This application of the 2 content makes for a lightweight yet durable material that’s to puncturing, smooth to the tough and stretching.
Performance of the SUP
As far as we are concerned, this is BESTWAY’s smallest board and given our humble experience with these SUPs, the BESTWAY Aqua Journey would do a remarkable job for an entry-level board.
It is very simple to handle either in or out of the water, it is amazingly stale which a learner would appreciate the most and it is as durable and solid as any bigger option.

TriTech Material – Exterior Material
TriTech is 3-ply reinforced material with a polyester mesh-core encased in two layers of laminated PVC for superior strength and durability. This premium marine-grade material can withstand extreme nautical conditions, including exposure to petroleum and ultra-violet rays. It is used on the outer surface of the SUP to protect from wear and tear whilst paddle boarding.
Drop Stitch Material – Interior Material
This amazing material has been used in such mission-critical applications as floating docks, rescue lifting bags and airplane wings. It owes its unbelievable rigidity and astonishing lightness to a network of thousands of polyester threads. These threads securely connect the surface material internally. Sidewalls seal the finished inflated cavity to create a panel that supports a considerable amount of weight while being light and portable when deflated.
3 Fixed Fins
3 fixed fins help to improve directional stability by reducing the risk of the SUP pivoting from side to side. This enables the SUP to travel in a straight line at greater speed.
Non-slip traction pad on the surface of the SUP provides feet with superior grip when standing, making it easier to balance on the board and control it on the water.
Adjustable Ore & Ankle Leash
85in [2.17m] aluminum oar is adjustable to suit your height and requirements.
The oar consists of 3 click-together sections to easily take apart and store in the bag provided.
The Ankle Leash helps you stay connected and safe on your paddle board.
Deck Handle & Hand Pump
A convenient deck handle allows you to easily drag the SUP to and from the water. The handle also enables you to easily pick up and carry the SUP to and from a vehicle.
The high-pressure hand pump, with a pressure gauge, allows for quick and easy inflation wherever you plan to paddle.
The Aqua Journey comes with everything you need in a lightweight grab-and-go carrier, including an aluminum paddle, hand pump, surf leash, seat and repair kit.
The inflatable SUP can be folded up and packed away into a compact carry bag when deflated, allowing you to easily store it away and transport it in a vehicle or airplane.
Stand, Paddle, Breathe
Paddleboarding is the fastest growing outdoor activity in the USA and its popularity around the world has increased year on year. If you have rivers, lakes or a seafront nearby, it’s a perfect outdoor pursuit. It’s relatively easy to do and a great way to get fitter. The process of standing, balancing and paddling helps to improve core stability, core strength and cardiovascular health. A long, leisurely paddle can also be deeply relaxing to relieve symptoms of stress and anxiety.
