This is a good board for...

This is a good board for touring on flat water and for introducing yourself to catching waves. It's a huge board, and suitable for yoga or building a small town on in the ocean if you like. It's great for beginners - it's very stable and a great platform to learn basic skills and balance. You'll grow out of it eventually, but for the price you can keep it around for your friends to learn on. Pros A very stable board to learn on. Inexpensive, very stable, can catch waves on it despite some shortcomings. Durable - I'm at least the third owner and it's holding up well. Cons Huge. It is hard to carry around on a windy beach as it acts like a sail. This is also a problem for maneuverability, especially on larger waves. The nose dives under if you don't stomp hard on the aft end when catching a wave. If a larger wave crashes on top of you, it will drag you under water like a sail. Make sure you take a deep breath! Usage Exercise, surfing places like Tofino, short tours.

Had a great paddle, this was the first time I used my new Strider, first time on a paddle board. It was smooth to paddle, even in small waves I had no prpblem. I think that this will be a great board to learn on. Pros Easy to manover, felt stable even in small waves. Cons Just begining so no Cons yet. Usage touring, exercise

Great board on flat and surf Want to get a smaller one though for more aggressive riding Pros Good all around Cons slow turns would like a more aggressive style Usage i use it equally in surf and flat

i bought this board in Costco, the board comes complete with all the accessories (except the paddle), so you can grab it and go, and its higher volume makes it appropriate for all body types, including heavier paddlers. i am paddling with ease and able to paddle into and out of small to medium waves. this board is a good all rounder but if you are looking for best performance either touring or surfing you will have to refine your next choice. Pros Easy to use, levels from never uses a SUP before, to a PRO....really stable, fast board for the size. In general good board..!! Cons Not to many cons, only one I could think its the weight when I have to carry out, but in general its excellent Usage EXERCISE, SURFING
