BESTWAY Hydro-Force Oceana Measurement
A paddleboard is dependent on its measurement of which category of people it’s made for. Fortunately, BESTWAY did not take any chance on this paddleboard and went with the safest bet in width, length, and thickness.
In terms of length, the inflatable SUP at hand measures exactly 10′, which is the equivalent of three meters. Accordingly, you can already imagine whole the activities and sorts of movement you’ll be able to perform on this SUP. Speaking of which, the BESTWAY Hydro-Force Oceana has all a newbie needs.
Though, it’s primarily made to appeal to yoga lovers. Moreover, the width has a big influence on its performance. So, to improve stability and decrease wobbling to a maximum, company committed to a reliable 33″ width. The width of the SUP is therefore going to pour into the yoga practice straightly, giving the essential stability, balance, and enough space to perform any yoga pose.
As far as board thickness goes, the BESTWAY Hydro-Force Oceana opts for safe 6″, the equivalent of 15cm. in fact, this paddleboard is so thick that it’s pretty much impossible to sustain any sort of bending motion that can’t be said about thinner SUPs.
Also, because it’s significantly thicker, it’s capable of handling up to 285lbs, which is enough for you and your pet.

Build quality is undeniably a great deal, especially when we’re talking about inflatable products. To be frank, ISUP suffered a lot due to counterfeit items and wrongly made attempts to make a fast buck. Though, on our experience with the company, we can argue that BESTWAY is one of the companies that are truly fighting this stereotype aggressively.
BESTWAY adopts almost the same base material for building the board and the Ocean is no exception. Accordingly, this board is made out of resilient high-grade PVC that’s both durable and flexible. This sort of coat will endure scratches, bumps, and rough surroundings without taking on any breakdown.
Also, to make sure that the coat sticks combine firmly, and close to the extreme, thereby, evaporating every risk of damage and puncture.
In terms of performance, it’s vital to note that BESTWAY Hydro-Force Oceana is slow but stable, steady but not very responsive. Though, those are essential elements for any newbie out there that’re looking for a simple all-round ISUP that would keep them on board no matter what.
The board is lighter than average, but it is not shorter than several other beginner-type SUPs. For the price, this is an ideal investment if you are looking to get out on flat water and calm moving water conditions.
Upper decks are soft, nonslip traction pads to boost the user’s balance. You can even take your Yoga practice on the water as a nonslip traction pad will assist keep you stable and well-balanced as you strike a pose.
Also, thanks to its stability, the paddleboard has proven to be best for yoga, but that means it is not a top performer in a racing or surfing context.
