If you don't live near the coast or large bodies of water the inflatable Tonga board is a great board for most. Traveling with this board is very simple and setting it up/packing it up is a quick process. I would recommend to anyone, especially to SUP beginners and people looking for an extra board that would be hassle-free to share with others!
Easy to travel with
It rides differently then solid/high-quality boards
Used for fun

I had the opportunity to try this out a demo events a few times and then a friend of mine won one so I had a few more chances to try it out. Overall I wasn't really impressed with the Tonga at all. The stability was ok but not what I would have expected for a board of this size. The quality also seemed to be not great either. Upon researching it seems this board is definitely a cheaper intro model so I suppose you get what you paid for. Probably a decent board for someone who wants a SUP without a significant investment and does not have plans to do more than lake paddling
Good for smaller sized beginners
Stability could be better.
