This board has been amazing! I have had it for three years and used it 200+ times. It inflates and deflates very easily so that I can transport it. This board is very versatile, I have paddled on many different rivers and lakes and occasionally on the pacific ocean. It is extremely stable even in choppy conditions.. I love the bungees and handle placement, both are very handy for attaching bags and equipment. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because I believe the keels could be improved for better control. The control is not terrible but you do tend to zigzag a bit if you are not going fast. But I love this board, it is an incredible stand up paddle board, not to mention, it makes a great floating dock for swimming.
