Why the cheap Aqua Marina Breeze is an example of getting what you paid for

The Aqua Marina Breeze is the cheapest board made by Aqua Marina (excluding the Aqua Marina Vibrant that is for children only). This is a very cheap, but also thin board that cannot take a lot of weight. With a maximum loading weight of 95 kg / 209.4 lbs this is not a lot. Especially if you consider that you should remember to keep into account that it is best to keep a margin of 15 to 20 kg below the maximum carrying weight to prevent bending.

Pro’s

  • Low price for an inflatable
  • Upon purchase you get a complete package so you do not have to incur extra costs to start
  • Possibility to mount a seat (not included)
  • With only 16.5 lbs this is a real lightweight

Cons

  • Maximum capacity of 209.4 lbs, this is often rather low
  • Only 4.7″ thick
  • The board is not fast enough for the advanced SUP boarder (5+ years experience)

Most suitable for:

As the carrying weight of the board is pretty low, the Aqua Marina Breeze is mostly suited for women and children. This board is especially suitable for starters and people who have less than 5 years of SUP experience. The board is not very fast (partly because it is inflatable) but mainly focuses on sportiness and fun.

Speed on the water
The board is short and wide, so not suitable for high speeds. More for beginners, slower paddling and relaxing.

Aqua Marina Breeze Review 3

Transport
It is very easy to transport this SUP because it is inflatable and light. Even on your back if you go with a bicycle.

Aqua Marina Breeze Review 4

Stability
The board is stable on the water, but does bend a bit when you get closer to the weight capacity.

Aqua Marina Breeze Review 5

My own experience

To be fair this is one of my least favorite boards I have tested. But to be honest I do not think this is meant for my size. The board was bending through a bit (I weigh roughly 80 kg / 176 lbs) and that is already quite a lot for this board to take. The thickness of 4.7″ is not ideal and in combination with the small size it is not very stable for people over 70 kg / 154 lbs.

This board is less stable so you are more likely to fall in the water than on a 5.9″ thick board. The maximum carrying capacity is low and as said for my weight it is not enough to prevent the board from bending through. This reduces the speed of the board quite a lot.

However, this inflatable SUP-Board also has many positive aspects. For a very acceptable price you get a complete package which allows you to start right away.

The material the board is made of is the same as the other Aqua Marina boards, so this is just fine. If you are smaller or lightweight this board could surely function well for you and offer you a complete package to get on the water right away.

Finally, we are very pleased with the developments in the field of design. Maybe you remember the Aqua Marina SPK-1? This is the exact same board (it had a name change) and be honest, the Breeze looks a bit better doesn’t it?

” If you are smaller or lightweight this board could surely function well for you and offer you a complete package to get on the water right away. “

Leash

The board includes a simple Aqua Marina paddle board leash. A straightforward leash without a coil, that is always extended. This version is not as good as the coiled version that is sold separately, but for a free included leash it is good enough.

Difference between an Inflatable board and a Hard board

Advantages Inflatable board

  • Easy to take on holiday (even on the plane)
  • Easy to store in the winter days
  • Much cheaper
  • Technology has improved greatly over the past 10 years. For this reason, these boards are now almost hard to distinguish from hard boards

Advantages Hardboard

  • More speed, which is important if you are a professional
  • Easier to make sharp turns on the water because the board is thinner
  • No inflation needed, you can get on the water right away

Conclusion – Should I buy this board?

The Aqua Marina Breeze is only suitable for smaller / lighter people or children that want to start with Stand Up Paddle boarding and have a small budget or are not sure if they will want to continue Stand Up Paddle boarding for a long time.

If you have been Stand Up Paddling for a longer time already or if you are sure you want to continue doing this sport for a long time, I would recommend to purchase a board of better quality that will last longer and is more durable.

For a quick and cheap beginner board this is a good deal because of the low price. Children could use this board well until they grow taller and the board becomes too lightweight for them.
