I had the same concerns any SUPer does when buying an inflatable. Will I be paddling a blowup toy. Not the case with the YOLO inflatable. At 15 psi, it is stiff and feels good under the feet and 30" wide this is super stable. You probably won't win any races on this board, but it was not designed to win races. If you are looking for a quality recreational board that you can take and store anywhere, this is a great choice. The three piece paddle is very nice. By removing the middle section you can create a youth paddle for those in your family under 5' tall.
Easy to store.
