Waterwalker 120 is best forWith its short length and narrower width, this board is best for short and light paddlers like teens, especially if you have the skills to benefit from its responsiveness to play-around waves. But do not forget that this is an all-around SUP, which makes it also good for beginners who want a board that suits many different activities. If you are like me, you want something durable, can attach many accessories, and beautiful at the same time, Waterwalker 120 combines all of this. Waterwalker 120 is fun to play around on smooth waters with light wind or slow-moving rivers with fewer turns. This board is also best for kids who outgrown the Prodigy Junior board.
Difference between Waterwalker 120 2020 and 2021 modelCompared to the 2020 model, the 2021 Waterwalker 120 weight gets down by 2.5 lbs after moving from the standard drop-stitch construction to the woven one. The blade is also changed from a nylon blade to a carbon/nylon blend blade to make paddling require less energy. The last modification is in the aesthetics, the 2021 Waterwalker 120 does not have the center stripe in the deck pad, and all of the three Waterwalker boards became available in three colors instead of only one.

ConclusionWith its unique 30 inches width, Waterwalker 120 is an iSUP with above-average performance for its length. With its lower stability, Waterwalker 120 is for small paddlers or larger ones with some experience. With its mid-range price, this board is good for you if you are after a board that lets you get a little bit of everything you want to do with an inflatable SUP with a premium well-thought backpack and well-built accessories.
