We asked a few members of our team to share their favorite Aquaglide products. Here’s what they’re personally using and why (click each image for more details)…

The AG Frame seat is a complete game changer for me to get the most out of a SUP. Unlike most other SUP seats intended to create a “SUP-Yak”, where the seat is low on the deck with only a backrest, the AG Frame seat sits higher, putting you in a more natural seating position, with two height options. Whether for fishing or just chilling with friends and family on the lake… I love the versatility!

Chinook Kayak angled

The Chinook 100 is the perfect length and size for me and a passenger who likely isn’t paddling much, for me that’s either a kiddo or my dog who might be the only golden retriever that refuses to swim! It’s a comfy ride that is quick to set up and take down!

Expedition 85 side angle view

The Expedition 85 screams minimum footprint and maximum access. The compact size can be carried to locations that I previously only dreamed of being able to reach with something to paddle in,

When sticking close to home my son and I grab a couple canoe paddles and play around in Class II whitewater. For me, this is the ultimate, ultra-light, “chuck it in the rig ‘cause you never know when you’re gonna find water” paddle craft.

Nothing is better than floating the river on a Solarium. I can fit 4 or 5 friends, 2 dogs and a full cooler on that thing. It’s basically a floating party lounge that I can roll up and throw in my van.

Deschutes kayak angled

The Deschutes 130 is such a great kayak with loads of value. As a smaller woman, 5’ 5” it’s an easy kayak to travel with and the backpack to carry it is ideal. It takes just 10 minutes to set everything up so I get on the water quickly. I want to call it the “Everybody Boat” because it would be perfect for anybody and everybody regardless of your paddling experience.

My go to craft for a post-work paddle session is the Cascade 11 SUP. Whether I’m attaining upstream for a workout, exploring a picturesque alpine lake, or sunbathing in a floatilla with friends, the Cascade checks all of the boxes for me. It is one of my favorite ways to relax and soak in our beautiful backyard here in Bend. Not to mention how easily it squeezes in to my garage chock full of gear!

Backfoot 130 angled view

The Blackfoot 130 does it all for my lifestyle. It’s outfitted to fish with an accessory rod holder from YakAttack, and I can easily stand up to cast in it, yet it’s also great for paddling the San Francisco Bay shoreline and just taking in the scenery. My last time out was during Fleet Week to watch the Blue Angels fly overhead.
