Great durable, stable, family board. This is a good entry level board that is stable on the flat, but also can surf small waves. It can take a lot of abuse from hitting it with a paddle or landing on a beach. It is a little on the heavy side to carry but it is not affected by that so much in the water Pros Good durable board for starting Cons A little heavy, Usage All types of water conditions, learning to surf

I bought this board early this summer to replace a bic because i wanted something to surf with. It does catch waves better. I dont think the bamboo is very thick and does not help with deck strength at least with my 230 lbs on it as i have substantial imprints where i stand the most. I do paddle alot of upwind down winds for conditioning and have had it in mild surf waves maybe three times. I like the board but was disapointed in how soft the top was Pros paddles well,fairly light weight Cons soft top Usage flat water up and down wind, surf

built this board in about 2 weeks to finish. Varnished the top and marine epoxy the rest. Have patience and follow the directions and all will be rewarded. I also added a hatch to store stuff. When on the shore i pop the hatch to help the board breath Pros very stable and fast. I use it for flat water paddling but it handles chop well. Learning to move forward and back to trim is handy, does downwind runs well too, mine weighed in at 37# Cons cant surf it to well at least not me must be vented or it will explode with the hot air inside Usage i will paddle in grand traverse bay for recreation and exercise, usually 3-4 miles or so. Stop laydown take a break then go some more. Love it
