The Hydro-Force Oceana Tech SUP is perfect if you’re looking for an inflatable stand-up paddleboard that’s a great all-rounder. Lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, it’s an ideal option for both flat water and small wave riding. Unlike other all-rounders in the Hydro-Force collection, it has an extra-thick 6” deck for superior strength, stability and safety. It also features a removable middle fin which enables you to customise its setup to suit your requirements.
Hydro-Force Oceana Tech SUP – Advantages
The inflatable SUP can be folded up and packed away into a compact carry bag when deflated, allowing you to easily store it away and transport it in a vehicle or airplane.
The Oceana Tech comes in a lightweight deluxe backpack with a hand pump, surf leash and repair kit. The only additional piece of kit required is an oar to paddle with.
Inflatable SUPs are thicker and more stable than hard boards. This makes them easier to balance on and a great option for beginners and less experienced paddle boarders.
Hard boards are also more susceptible to impact damage. Whereas a hard board may sustain damage from running into a dock, an inflatable SUP will bounce right off it.
Hydro-Force Oceana Tech SUP – Features
Non-slip traction pad on the surface of the SUP provides feet with superior grip when standing, making it easier to balance on the board and control it on the water.
2 fixed side fins and a removable middle fin allow you to customise the paddleboard to reduce drag, increase speed and easily adapt it for different water conditions.
An elastic cord allows you to strap cargo onto the SUP. It’s perfect for keeping a bag with sunscreen, water and other essentials within easy reach when paddleboarding.
Convenient deck handle allows you to easily drag the SUP to and from the water. The handle also enables you to easily pick up and carry the SUP to and from a vehicle.
TriTech Material – SUP Exterior Material
TriTech™ is 3-ply reinforced material with a polyester mesh-core encased in two layers of laminated PVC for superior strength and durability. This premium marine grade material can withstand extreme nautical conditions, including exposure to petroleum and ultra-violet rays. It is used on the outer surface of the SUP to protect from wear and tear whilst paddle boarding.
Drop Stitch Material – SUP Interior Material
This amazing material has been used in such mission-critical applications as floating docks, rescue lifting bags and airplane wings. It owes its unbelievable rigidity and astonishing lightness to a network of thousands of polyester threads. These threads securely connect the surface material internally. Sidewalls seal the finished inflated cavity to create a panel that supports a considerable amount of weight, while being light and portable when deflated.
Stand, Paddle, Breathe
Paddleboarding is the fastest growing outdoor activity in the USA and its popularity around the world has increased year on year. If you have rivers, lakes or a seafront nearby, it’s a perfect outdoor pursuit. It’s relatively easy to do and a great way to get fitter. The process of standing, balancing and paddling helps to improve core stability, core strength and cardiovascular health. A long, leisurely paddle can also be deeply relaxing to relieve symptoms of stress and anxiety.
