Aqua Marina Mega

Price: $1,200 Build: Inflatable
Skill: Beginner Use: Group SUP
Weight: 59.5lbs Sizes: 18"

About the board:Aqua Marina hit the mark when naming this board. At 18 feet long and 5 feet wide, the Aqua Marina Mega is a massive group SUP that can easily fit multiple adult and youth paddlers. Whether you take it on flat water or for a surf, the Mega is definitely a fun board for family and friends to enjoy. It comes with multiple handles which makes the board very easy to carry despite its size. It also comes with two pumps and has two attachment valves on the board so two people can help with inflating at the same time. With our team of three alternating pumpers, it took around 15 minutes to fully inflate the board. However, one thing worth noting is that the pumps do appear to be fragile and it is quite difficult and tricky at times to connect the pumps to the boards initially. But, if you're looking for an inexpensive group SUP that works well in flat water and is able to handle soft waves then the Mega is definitely worth a look. Read more HERE.
