The 9'8 Tava Paddle Board...
The 9'8 Tava Paddle Board is a great all around board. It is sturdy enough to endure travels to and from multiple beaches, rivers, and ponds. The grip pad has been great for when I do yoga on the board. The grip pad has prevented slipping during poses that require both m hands and feet on the board, which on other boards has not been the case. Also the grip pad is comfortable for your hands and feet, as well as your back or stomach area. It has just enough cushion and the perfect amount of support. The board feared a handle for easy carrying and the board is light weight so that I can carry it without much trouble. The width of the board makes yoga easy to do, but also it is great for security while paddling. It does not rock much when waves come by. Overall this is my favorite board.

The board has a lovely shape to it which makes it glide beautifully
It is stable in choppy water
The securing bands to hold water bottles and other items are very handy during trips
I use this board for yoga primarily, but also exercising and touring.

I work at a resort on a lake and we have 6 of these paddleboards and 2 of the 11'2 boards for rent. they are our most popular watersport activity and we have had rave reviews about them.
lightweight; handle makes them easy to carry; good weight capacity; easily operated by beginners
edges can chip from being ran into docks, other boards, etc.

This has been my favorite SUP I have tried thus far. A friend let me use it while we were out one day. It is light weight and easy to transport. The length is perfect for a smaller guy like myself, but does not lack on stability. It has a great shape that works both flat water and surf. A nose to tail, and rail to rail grip means you can walk all over the board too!
Light weight, stable, full coverage grip, modern longboard shape
