This is one of the early plastic boards created for Whitewater SUP. I have paddled in down class four rapids and it's a blast. They have started to add better deck pads, mine was one of the early ones with textured plastic. I did break the handle on the hatch and it was a real pain to find a replacement. Most want to sell you the whole hatch assembly. Looking forward to more progressive designs with more bow rocker and lower feet/ higher edges / foot blocks etc.
Low volume tail allows tricks still. Plastic is bomber and slides over rocks. Hatch makes for a flat landing when you fall on the board and good storage.
Speed, not much rocker. Fin is to long for most whitewater
The board is a wee heavy...

The board is a wee heavy but is an excellent training board for anyone interested in learning whitewater SUPing.
The boards weight gives it a presence in squirreley water. Wide base helps with learning stability.
Weight. Could use a little more rocker...
Use it regularly on local II-III+ whitewater.
This is a river whitewater SUP. So I would not recommend it for use on a lake- It would be very slow for that- The board was one of the innovators IMO of the SUP market. Anyway it is very stable and a lot of fun I like to use it when I go on easier whitewater that would be boring in a c1 or kayak. It surfs well.
Plastic so it can hit rocks without worry--
very stable --good intro platform to WW
class II-III whitewater
