Vilano Journey 10′ Review

The Journey 10’ Stand Up Paddle Board is quite new in the market but this brand is already popular for their high quality bikes and their SUP is just as great. If you want to relax and do a little water journey, then an inflatable paddle board would be a great choice for that. This is a well-made SUP and its 8 inch single fin works perfectly when you use it on flat water. It was designed for speed and it can track through a variety of water conditions very well. Although it is an inflatable stand up paddle board, it still feels rigid and sturdy since it was made using a high grade PVC material so you don’t have to worry that it might turn you over while you are in the middle of the ocean. The Journey 10’ would be perfect for exercise, touring and other sorts of fun water activities.

Construction

The Journey 10’ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board comes in two color combinations, white-grey and blue-white, it is ten feet long, six inches thick and thirty-one inches in width and it can hold up to about 200 lbs. It is very handy and portable, especially when it is deflated and it comes with seven on board heavy duty D ring hooks that you can attach to a Kayak back seat or you can use to carry coolers. It has a Korean Drop Stitch construction with high grade PVC which makes it feel like a hard board and it is surely built to last. Its deck features comfortable and anti-slip diamond groove traction for your grip and it has eight single fins that are very easy to attach and remove.

Conclusion

Vilano’s Journey 10’ Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board has been included in several reviews for the Top Ten Best SUP for the year 2015. It is inflatable but it feels like a rigid SUP and it is a great choice for a decent paddle board if you are on a tight budget.
