I rented one of these paddleboards to use on a large inland lake for several of us to try. We are first-timers for SUPs. I loved this board. I am a heavier person so was concerned about being able to use any SUP, but had no issues. It has a soft padded top that's easy on your feet. It is fairly wide for stability. Foam padded around edges. Also tested by fit teenagers and early 20 year olds, and all thought it was a very nice SUP. We had it on 2 very different weather days, one calm with the water like glass, and one day with wind and slight white caps. Performed well on both conditions, but, of course, was awesome on the milder day. I will probably end up buying one of these.
Foam construction easy to damage. (Not a big issue for the experienced, might be an issue for beginners using near docks.)
Recreational on large inland lake (South Manistique in U.P. Michigan).

I don't have the 10. 6 as it's a bit short for me…but do have the B-Ray 11.5
Great for SUP Pups.
Great for surfing
Soft comfortable decking.

I use my board for exercise, surfing and touring. My boxer, Sadie B is my constant companion on my board. She is always with me. We have surfed together…we're on the water at least 4 days a week ….

Super stable, tracks well, lightweight and durable. Comes with 9" fin which is pretty flexible. Great in flat, calm water and can handle light surf. Would recommend to beginners and those looking an entry level SUP.
Lightweight, inexpensive, comfortable foam top
Not great in high surf
Day trips through the marshes and creeks, exercise
