I just purchased the lite tech and love it. I weigh 234 and use it for surfing. Plenty of float for my weight.
Great all round board for…
Great all round board for rivers, lakes and small surf Very portable and can travel around the world with it Pros Portable Don't need a roof rack Easy to set up and less change of it to be stolen Cons Some people find it hard to use the hand pump Requires about 18 psi (get a electrical pump) Flexes a little then a hard board Usage I use it in rivers and lakes mostly
I tried the inflatable…
I tried the inflatable version, and in all fairness I didn't take it in real surf, just 2' monsoonal chop in the local reservoir. It had virtually no glide, especially carrying my 240 lbs. I think that I'm too heavy for this board; too much work, not fun. Pros Eh, maybe if you have the windsurfing rig attached it would be fun. Cons The inflatable astro whopper is sloooow, sloooow, sloooow, at least for my weight. As an "all-around" board, not the right compromise for my needs. Usage Light surfing, touring, and river running.
Love this board. I'm a bigger…
Love this board. I'm a bigger dude (~240 lbs) so I was concerned about going from a 12' Laird to this 10' board. But happily, it was the right move, as I'm being floated fine (my concern) and a lot more maneuverability and carving fun on this shorter board. I'd like to do an apples to apples and go on a new 10' Laird board to see. Anyone got one that might want to trade? Pros Floatability. Very stable for a bigger guy. Fairly light. Cons Don't love the Starboard icon design but that's about it. Usage I use it to Surf here in W. LA at Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Ventura, San Onofre, Dana Point, San Clemente, etc.
