A beginner SUP, one that you can grow with. Great on calm waters, yet stable in waves up to 3ft. They say it will float up to a 250 lb paddler.
Weight, easily handled by one person compared to other boards.
This is my first and only kayak. I bought it off of craigslist and have been very happy with it. I wanted something bigger than a 8' Costco kayak and this fit the bill. I have used it mostly in calm waters of 2' or less waves and have found it to be stable. I find that it drifts to the left but being right handed my strokes easily compensate. As an older model, I would give it a thumbs up for someone buying a used kayak as starter or knockaround kayak.
