Aqua Marine SPK-1 Standup Paddleboard Review


If you want a good inflatable stand up paddle board for kids, or for someone who is small and petite, then this Aqua Marine SPK-1 Standup Paddleboard is a decent choice for you. Though it is a 10 foot board, it does not perform well for most adults as it seems designed to support smaller people like kids.

That being said, if you fall into those categories (kids or petite adults), then you will likely be able to use this board with no problems at all. But for the rest of us, this one is better skipped as it just cannot support the weight of most adults.

It is actually a kids iSUP and just not labeled as such.

Aqua Marine SPK-1 Standup Paddleboard Features

To give you an idea of what you get for the money, let’s take a moment to check out the features of this inflatable standup paddle board. Here are the top specs for it at a glance:

  • High-pressure Inflatable Paddleboard
  • Removable Tri-fin Style
  • Diamond Cut EVA Anti-Slippery Pad and Kick Pad
  • Stainless Steel D-Ring on Tail for Safety Leash or to Attach Kayak Seat
  • Optimum Air Pressure in All Conditions, up to 15psi

For lighter and middleweight riders, the SPK-1 is perfect for flat water to first waves. A classic pintail shape guarantees performance and speed, while size of the board means easy to turn and maneuver. With a speedy flat spot and plenty of V in the tail, this 3-meter (9.9ft) feels like a shortboard with vertical control and power. A Tri-fin cluster gives further options for drive and tracking in almost any water state. (*PADDLE, SEAT AND STRAPS NOT INCLUDED)
