The graphics on this board...

The graphics on this board are stunning in real life. Pictures don't do it justice. It feels much lighter than it's claimed twenty six pound weight in hand. From the first paddle stroke this thing took off much faster than other boards I have ridden. It also glides and tracks very well. I tried this twenty seven inch wide version of this board along with the twenty nine inch wide board back to back. This narrower one didn't perform any better but was significantly less stable. The bow is shaped like an Epic kayak with a very sharp entry that cuts through water keeping tracking very straight and surely to eliminate bobbing in chop. I feel too tall and heavy to be comfortable on this board for everyday paddling. I think it's best suited for a light shorter paddler or race only board. It just felt a little too tippy for my comfort. Pros great graphics and finish, fast, good tracking/glide, light, durable, comfy slight concave deck pad, extra side handles, fast-gets going in 1-2 paddle strokes, cuts right through the water with ease Cons It would be a good race board for a light short paddler, too unstable for everyday guy at 6' 200lbs Usage Usage: I did a long demo on a lake behind Bill Jackson's on the 29" and 27" wide 12'6" Bic Tracers.
