Pretty solid board. I let my friends use this board for first time paddlers or if I plan to be out on the water for a long time. Glides well. My complaints are that the handle completely cane apart and the board is heavy so work your arms out if you have to haul it around to get it in the water.

Extremely stable with...

Extremely stable with great glide. A great choice for me as I do not have great balance. This board has proved to be good in smooth lake waters and cuts through boat wakes well too. Front and rear bungees allow lots of gear on board. Pros Wide pad, low rocker on the bottom makes it very stable. Great looks! Light colors stay cool in the sun. Cons Like any foam core fiberglass board it can get cracked easily - took me a year but I finally dropped it, now needing repair. Could be tougher but they are all this way. Only real con I have is the new handle style - a padded loop rather than recessed. Usage Lake and river touring and fitness exercise.

We recently moved to...

We recently moved to Florida from Ohio. My teenage boys wanted paddle boards to fish from. I was able to get two Riviera paddle boards for the price of one 'fishing paddle board'. They added rod holders to a cooler and they are all set to fish! Pros It is very lightweight and very smooth. It's a great size as well. And it's good looking! Cons It doesn't come with fishing rod holders, but we fixed that by attaching rod holders to a cooler. Problem solved. Usage My kids use ours to fish, fly fish and also enjoy the open water

Only had this Riviera...

Only had this Riviera Board about 6 months. We are new to the sport and while on vacation in FL we were renting paddleboards everyday. We decided to buy one while in Jupiter. We strapped it on the mini van and drove it back to NC. Our family has really enjoyed it. Pros The ability to remain stable and cut thru any choppy water. It glides thru the water with very little resistance. Love it and would absolutely purchase another Riviera. Cons It takes a little bit more to turn. Usage We use ours for recreation, touring and exercise.

This SUP just flies on the water! It makes navigation through calm waters extremelly pleasurable. It also can handle choppy waters with great stability. I paddle on Long Island, NY, and this SUP allows me to enjoy the beautiful coastal line while I get a full body workout. Watching bald eagles flying over the bay or lifting the paddle from the water to quietly watch schools of blue fish swiming near the surface are just two of the many awesome experiences I have had from my SUP! I also enjoy an awesome work out for my body. The workout I get from paddling has strengthened my whole body, starting from my feet. When I paddle, back pains and hip pain from a labrum tear simply disappear. It is both invigorating and relaxing, one of the best meditation experiences one can have! I believe it is almost impossible to fall off this board - this Riviera is the most stable SUP I ever used. I highly recommend this board, for your body and soul! Pros The Riviera Voyager simply glides through the water. It makes paddling seem effortless and its stability is paramount. Cons It is harder to manouver and make (left or right) turns. Also, it is a little bit heavy to be carried throught longer distances. Usage I use it for exercising and touring.

I' like that there is a...

I' like that there is a lot of space for gear (and my dog). Coast was also a big factor-it's the cheapest cruiser at my hometown shop. Pros Cost was lower than the others, flat top good for yoga, gets good speed. Cons Appearance. I wish their were different designs and customization. Usage I exercise and tour on it.

Great stable board that is...

Great stable board that is primarily used for touring but can hold its own when used as a race board. Cuts through the chop with it's pointed nose and is comfortable throughout your entire ride. Pros I like that there is multiple tie downs on both nose and tail. Cons It felt that it was a little bulky and that I was high above the water instead of a lowered standing area. Still felt stable though. Usage Mostly touring, but enjoy an occasional local race.

I've had this board for a...

I've had this board for a while now and I still love it. I've used it in the intercoastal, ocean, and rivers across the state. It's stable even with my eight year old child on with me. I'd buy one again. Pros It's very stable in any water condition and floats well with weight. The board is quiet and easy to use fishing. Cons If I had to have any negative about this board I would have to say it's the weight. But that's what you get for the stability and the 12'6" length. Usage Touring, fishing, sleeping, relaxation

Perfect touring type board...

Perfect touring type board for all levels. Paddles and glides great. Great float volume so can handle all rider builds. Stable and tracks straight. Cuts right through chop. Pros stability , glide , float volume , tracking Cons stock fin, deck pad loose by hand hole Usage exercise 5 mile course in harbor
