It's a quality, light weight paddle board. Easy to transport. Easy to paddle. The board has held up well. The only damage has been caused has been operator error. My grandkids like to take it out 2 at a time. One paddles, the other lays belly down and pretends they are surfing. It has also made it's way into the pool as a floaty. Which I do not suggest, expensive for a floaty.
Once on the lake and clear of other paddlers I can lay down on my back and let the wind and waves. rock the weeks stress away.
at 190lbs I might be a bit too big. or i'm just too old and clumsy.
water meditation, just get on the water listen to nature.
