Paddle Board Highlights

Who is it for?

The Aqua Marina Atlas is a very stable, price-point inflatable paddle board. The board is an all-around shape that is great for cruising near the shoreline and short distance paddling and is also wide enough for paddlers of all skill levels and sizes to be able to use with ease. Carrying the board is quite easy as it weighs just over 21 lbs and the board has rich graphics on it, making it stand out. At $549 , the Atlas sits in the affordable price point tier in terms of affordability.

First Impressions

If you're looking for something that is at a lower price point that doesn't break the bank and gives you ample stability, whether it's for you, your kids or even if you want to throw some cargo on the nose, then the Atlas is a board to consider. The board comes with a paddle, leash, pump, fin and carry bag, so with this single package you're ready to hit the water. The deck does feel a bit soft so it could use some reinforcement there, but then again once you start adding these reinforcements to make the board a bit stiffer the price point starts to go up. The board features an improved inflatable pump and connector, making the connection between the pump and board easy to use, which hasn't always been the case with Aqua Marina boards in the past. Overall, at the price point this package is offered at, it's a pretty solid deal for a recreational paddler looking for something that is budget friendly and great for the entire family.

Benefits

  • Primary Use

    All Around

    Paddle Boards fall into two broad categories, All-Around and Specialty boards, with all-around designed primarily for recreation while speciality boards for top performance in specific disciplines

  • Durability

    Somewhat fragile

    Durability is largely a result of the board construction and shape, with more durable boards typically carrying more materials (added layers, PVC, etc) and as such adding to the weight.

  • Carrying

    Easy

    Carrying ease is determined by board weight and handle type, where a board weighing under 20lbs with a Liftsup handle is extremely easy to carry while a 35+lbs board quite difficult.

  • Stability

    Stable

    Stability is a product of construction and shape, where boards w/ 30”+ wide and 200+ liters in volume offer plenty of stability for your AVG adult while a board under 26” wide is a challenge.

  • Glide

    Average

    Glide is a result of board shape and construction, w/ boards weighing under 30lbs and designed for racing offering best glide while recreational boards normally being on the slow side.

Features

  • Dimensions

    12' x 33" x 6"

    Industry standard in board dimensions reads: L (length, from nose to tail) x W (width, from rail to rail at midpoint length), and H (height, from top to bottom of board at midpoint length).

  • Weight

    21.5 lbs

    Standup paddle boards tend to fall into 4 different weight classes: extremely lightweight (under 20 lbs), lightweight (20-28 lbs), average weight (28-35 lbs), heavy (above 35 lbs).

  • Volume

    380 L

    Volume is a key metric to determine how much weight a board can carry. Boards w/ 200+ liters offer most floatation with boards under 150 liters typically for high-performance surf.

  • Capacity

    374 lbs

    Capacity is the max cargo weight a stand up paddle board can carry, considering not only the paddler’s weight but whatever else the paddler may choose to carry alongside him/her.

  • Add On's

    Bungee Nose, Paddle Included, Leash Included

    Add-on’s include bungee cords, a minimalist way to haul things; connexsup, which allows for all sorts of attachments, even fishing rods; and FCS II/Connect, for easy fin instal.

  • Handle

    Strap

    Handles directly affect carrying ease, with external grip handles (Liftsup & EZgrab) offering most comfort, Internal Ergo Grip the mid-tier comfort, and box handles as least comfortable.

  • Holders

    No

    Fishing rod holders and/or paddle holders can make paddling that much more pleasant, esp. when needing holders for the rod or having a safe place for the paddle during yoga.
