Yoga enthusiasts will love the Aqua Marina stable inflatable dock that is easy to set up and lots of fun! Up to 8 Aqua Marina Paddle Boards can connect to the Aqua Marina Yoga Dock with hooks. This would be perfect for hosting a yoga class or even for families and friends that want to stick together and enjoy some time on the water.
The dock itself can be used as a platform for the yoga instructor. However, it can also be used to make sure that everyone stays together for a more relaxed excursion.
Transporting the Dock
The Aqua Marina Yoga Dock comes with a carrying bag for easy transportation and a double-action manual pump for easy inflation and deflation. The dock is 9’6” long, 6’7” wide, and 4’7” thick.
It can inflate up to 15 psi. Its drop-stitch material allows it to stay firm throughout your class and/or excursion, even in harsher conditions. The dock is fully covered with EVA padding, reducing the likelihood of any slips on the water and adding to the dock’s stability. The dock also has carrying handles for your convenience.
We found that it really is a two-person job to get it into the water. If you are bringing the dock and multiple boards out to the water, you will definitely want help carrying everything. The dock should be towed using a paddleboard when moving in the water as it is difficult to paddle on the dock.
Inflating and deflating the dock takes less than 10 minutes, although this time may vary from person to person. All you have to do is twist the pump hose into the rubber patched valve and begin pumping. The rubber patch helps to reinforce the valve and keeps the dock inflated, providing extra security in the water.
The double-action pump can also be used to vacuum out any remaining air, which makes folding it and packing it into the carrying bag easy and hassle-free. As multiple people will be using the dock, it is important that you fill it up with the recommended amount of air so that it is firm enough to support everyone.
Connecting the paddle boards to the dock is very easy. Simply attach each paddleboard’s hook to the dock’s D-rings and you are ready to go. We didn’t have any problems attaching our boards to the dock and were impressed with how securely the boards were docked. Again, up to 8 boards can connect to the Yoga Dock. This would make for a fun yoga class, especially one for SUP beginners who may enjoy the security of being attached to the dock while practicing yoga.
While other boards may be able to connect to this dock depending on their specifications, because of the unique width of the Aqua Marina Yoga series’ paddleboards, it is recommended that you connect the Aqua Marina Dhyana SUP or the Aqua Marina Peace SUP to this dock to ensure the most secure docking.
As with the Dhyana SUPs, this dock is designed for practicing yoga, so the stability is top-notch. The Aqua Marina Yoga Dock ($869.99) will appeal to yoga practitioners and larger groups. It is a great choice for larger gatherings where you want everyone to stick together. It provides a stable foundation for SUP activities and yoga. It is a fun addition to the Aqua Marina SUP collection and a must-have for yoga enthusiasts!
