No king of the ocean, but a nice versatile board

The Aqua Marina Triton is a well designed board in between a recreational board and a touring board. Its size of 11’2″ long and 32″ wide is not very common and makes this board suitable for people who want to combine these activities.

Pro’s

  • Very good price for this versatile paddle board
  • Upon purchase you get a complete package so you do not have to incur extra costs to start
  • Suitable for both quiet and slightly wilder water
  • Easy to take a pet or child 
  • Lightweight product that is easy to carry and inflate

Cons

  • If you really want to tour you need a better paddle
  • The board is not fast enough for the advanced SUP boarder (5+ years experience)

Most suitable for:

The Aqua Marina Triton feels very stable and is an upgrade compared to the well known Aqua Marina Fusion. I like the redesign of the board to make it look more sleek and modern. Because of the bigger platform and the maximum carrying capacity of 150 kg you can take a child or dog. 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 has a nice glide, not as great as a touring or racing paddle board but better than the average all-around board.

Aqua Marina Triton Review 3

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

Aqua Marina Triton Review 4

Stability
The board is stable on the water and the weight capacity of 330 lbs is even enough to take a pet or a child along.

My own experience

The Aqua Marina Triton feels very stable and as said I do like the new design of the board and the blue color. I understand that there’s a gap in between all-around boards and touring boards that the Triton tries to fill. It does so pretty successfully, but if you truly want to go for touring more often I would still recommend to purchase the Aqua Marina Atlas board instead.

As a beginner, this board may do better for you because of the larger platform than the Aqua Marina Fusion or Vapor, so it is easier to keep balance. You also have space to carry extra stuff or to take a child or pet, if you’re light even a second person could join you.

The board has a thickness of 6″, a width of 32″ and a length of 11’2″. So as said in between a standard all-around board and a touring board. I would recommend this board mostly for beginners who are looking into touring but are not totally sure about doing so yet. This could be a great starter board for you.

Aqua Marina Triton Review 6

The Aqua Marina Triton inflatable paddle Board has the same advantage as almost every other Aqua Marina paddle board. For a very acceptable price you get a complete package which allows you to start right away.

I preferred this model mostly for lakes or rivers, for touring on wilder waters I prefer an even bigger platform like the previously mentioned Aqua Marina Atlas to make sure I will not lose balance because of the waves. But if you do take this board on the ocean, don’t get too far away from the coast.

The stiffness of the board is good with the standard 15 PSI pressure and I like the big diamond grooving foot pad so even with wet feet you have good grip. The tail kick pad  made it easy to lift the board a bit in the back so turns were easier than on a board that lacks this addition.

In the package

Paddle

The Aqua Marina Triton stand up paddle board is delivered including an Aqua Marina Sports III Paddle. The Sports III Paddle is an aluminum paddle in 3 parts, that can be height adjusted so it is always on the right length. If you really want to go for longer tours consider getting a fiberglass or carbon paddle as an addition.

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

The Aqua Marina Triton Stand Up Paddle Board has been reviewed by a couple of websites online.

A short overview of these reviews below:

Supconnect.com: ” The 11’2 Triton is the stiffest Aqua Marina board we’ve paddled to-date. For a price-point board it’s very stiff (a good thing) and has a nice shape to it where it seems to be a hybrid between an all around and touring board.”

Amazon.de: Rating 4.3/5. “Absolutely recommended for size. Smaller boards are partly cheaper, but in this size, for this price and this brand. 5 out of 5 stars. Absolutely enthusiastic.”

Conclusion – Should I buy this board?

The Aqua Marina Triton is a great in between sized board, a unique combination of a touring paddle board and an all-around paddle board. It has a nice and sleek design and is very stiff, even when packing extra stuff and taking a pet or child along for the ride.

Because the board is bigger than standard all-around boards it offers more stability, which also makes other activities like SUP Yoga easier.

This is a great starter board for beginners that are not sure if they like touring yet or just want to have fun on their board. It comes in a complete package, so you do not need to purchase any extra’s to get out on the water.

What is your favorite activity on your Stand Up Paddle Board? Did you get a specific paddle board just for this purpose, or did you pick an all-around paddle board like the Aqua Marina Triton? Let me know in the comments, I’m a curious guy!

  1. Hey Tom I have a question! I am trying to buy the vapour board for my girlfriend. She is quite small at 47kg in weight and only about 5’3. Do u think balancing will be an issue and bending of the board for something like the aqua marina vapour! Also wanted to ask u think she would have issues out in the ocean with it? thanks alot!

    • Hi Alan,

      When your girlfriend is that small and light the Vapor will be perfect and will not bend.
      Just do not go on the Aqua Marina Vapor together 😉
      On the ocean it will also be fine, just be careful when the water is too wild and always use a SUP leash!

      Greetings,

      Tom
