“A perfect inflatable, especially for a first purchase. Two of my family members who had never paddled before have stood up and stayed up on them without any falls. They are very well made and extremely durable. The inflation process is a relatively easy and only requires a small amount of effort for a large amount of fun. I carried two from the U.S. to Australia on an aircraft without any hassle whatsoever.
I have used them in the bay, on a river and in the ocean and each time I have had limited difficulty staying on the board or even paddling against a 20kt headwind. The board tracks truly and glides nicely whilst keeping the paddler high and dry on top of 6″ rails. I would highly recommend these boards to anyone who is looking for an inflatable. The portability combined with a board that doesn’t chip or ding itself or the paddler, are all great reasons to think seriously about purchasing one (or two as in my case).“
