I've demoed a few boards over the last couple years and in the end decided to buy the Crusader, mostly because it is good for all types of water, has decent space for my 35 lb dog and feels really nice to paddle. I'm mostly out on calm flat water but I have had it out in chop a few times and it handled well. The package comes with everything I needed to get on the water and after a good 6 months of continuous use, it still looks and feels brand new. Being an inflatable I am careful with it and I make sure to dry it well after use. I really have no complaints. It was a good purchase and I love using it.
I've had this board out a few times it's been wonderful. I love this board and this company. These guys are a new company, small but there customer service is excellent. I bought it originally my wife but I ended up trying it and then hijacking it from her instead. I'll be looking to buy a spark for her asap so we can both get out there. Love the roller bag. Looking forward to taking it on a trip, fingers crossed.
This is a superb board, well made and nice design. We did quite a bit of research before purchasing and we were so glad we went with this company. Not only is the board fantastic but we have had great customer service as well. We use it mostly on lakes and rivers and have had our 70 lbs. Lab out with us several times. Already looking forward to next summer!!
