This was a friends board that I borrowed for a day. I am not an expert but this board was so smooth on Lake Ontario. I just love being on a stand up and I have many friends who are not inquiring about a board once they see I can do it. Pros I like the way I felt on this board. It rode really well on Lake Ontario Cons I really do not have any cons to say. I just love being on the lake with this board Usage I try to get out as much as I can on the weekends. During the summer I am off from school (teacher) so I am able to go on the lake more

Tried out the inflatable Quest by Glide SUP the other day. It was definitely a fun board to ride, a little tippier than the other boards I tried but still stable enough to do some down dogs. I don't think that's a down side, just a side effect of being an inflatable board. Had plenty of room for my gear and glides through the water well. Tracked better than expected in the water. Tried this out in flatwater conditions, and had a blast! Pros Versatile, comfortable to use and a pretty stable board Cons I could tell I was on an inflatable board versus a regular board. I did get on an isup recently that I hardly realized the difference but once I got used to the board I hardly noticed. Usage Flatwater lakes only, so far!

I had the chance to try out a Glide Quest board on a perfect float down the Deschutes River in SunRiver, OR. While I truly spent most of my time simply floating and relaxing, I did give it a go with a couple "sprints" and felt that it was an excellent board all around. Pros This board is fast and durable. It will keep up with any other touring board and also makes the best river race board! Cons The graphics of the board were a little feminine but I was borrowing it so I guess I can't complain to much. Usage Touring and river racing
