Aqua Marina Drift

Paddle Board Make & Model

Brand:
Aqua Marina
Model:
Drift

Aqua Marina is a big name in the water sporting world, but the product of theirs that will garner the most interest from anglers is the Drift inflatable stand up paddle board. This 10'10” board is specially designed for fishermen and has a couple of features that gives it the edge over other inflatable paddle boards.

Durability is one of the most important aspects of inflatable boards and the Drift takes care of this with an extra thick, durable 6” double-wall drop stitch core material design. According to Aqua Marina, the drift is ideal for riders up to 243 lbs, but it has a maximum payload of about 287 lobs. Considering it has a net weight of only 27.1 lbs this really isn’t too shabby. At 38” wide the Drift is nice and roomy, while its independent side chambers offers additional safety and stability. You’ll be on sure footing with the Drift as well as it has a large diamond EVA anti-slip foot pad that has been heat embossed for optimal traction and higher durability.

What we really like about the Drift compared to other inflatable SUP boards is the fact that it has built-in fishing rod holding mounts on both sides. It also has a paddle holder for stowing your paddle out of the way while you are fishing. The 2 stainless steel D-rings in the center of the board are also perfect for attaching a fish cooler box that can double as a seat. In fact, Aqua Marina includes a KOOL fishing cooler with a high back seat, bait well and storage boxes as part of their package for the Drift.
The two independent side chambers is something that is quickly becoming a standard feature on inflatable SUP boards aimed at fishing enthusiasts due to the added stability. The drift only has a single central slide-in fin, which is quite large, but it is able to provide great tracking. Like most inflatable SUP boards of this size it is not very fast and inflating the main as well as two side chambers takes a little longer than just inflating a standalone board, but overall there is a lot to like about the Drift.
