Great board. Very pretty. Pros Glides quickly Very light weight for the size. Cons I found it to be tippy for someone of my weight. 175 lbs but I feel it would be perfect for slimmer ladies. Usage Exercise as in paddling and touring.

Love the Surftech board. I...

Love the Surftech board. I "graduated" to the Surftech Discovery from a Bic sport I started with last season. I am 60 years old fit Pilates teacher. I am absolutely crazy about my Surftech board. It glides on the water virtually effortlessly especially in choppy waves on a lake. Bring on the breeze and the wind for a fun and controlled ride. This board literally moves twice as fast as my last board with great maneuverability. it is a treat! Pros A Fun board all around. Great maneuverability on flat surface and choppy water thanks to the upturned nose. Narrow to enable you to connect with your board as an extension of your center and increase your speed on the water with a pointed nose. A fabulous workout for touring or even racing on a lake. Cannot comment on it's performance on any other body of water but a lake since I have yet to experience other conditions. Cons Not adequate for a Pilates Mat workout. The surface is too hard to enable a safe workout and precludes rolling on your spine. It is also too narrow and therefore unstable for most people to perform a workout on in a supine position. Probably not intended to be used as a fitness board other then a "standing/Kneeling/sitting" workout. Only used it five times the rubber on the top is easily damaged "flakes off" and is hard to clean. I am 5'2" and 114Lb I use leverage to prop the board up on my SUV equipped with THULE racks...certainly my rocking the board back and forth for proper placement on top of the car contributes to the "foam" breaking up. Mea culpa. Usage Touring on a lake. Racing for fun. Great workout standing on board to strengthen the "power house/core,"as well as the entire body and increase balance.
