We are new to paddling and IN LOVE with this board. Easy to carry with the backpack, and super easy to inflate and deflate, and I am not THAT fit. The durable construction is nice, think "thickest innertube ever." I don't have to worry about dinging it on a rock or dock, we just bounce off. There is a "triple layer stringer design," to make the board super rigid when it's inflated ... because remember I said it's inflatable and I carried it in the provided backpack? It comes with the adjustable aluminum paddle, super durable, and comes apart to fit into the backpack. We were super stoked that everything is included! *board, paddle, pump w/gauge, dry pouch (yay! selfies!), coil leash, repair kit. And it all fits in the EXCELLENT backpack. Get one and get outside!! Seriously, I was a big chicken and I'm almost 50. I can do this and you'll love it too!!
Extremely stable board for the beginner, expecially the gravitationally enhanced beginner. I am a 6'1", ~200 lb. old guy and after 1 week am able to paddle more than a mile without falling. Mostly. The deck offers excellent grip and the 36" width is as stable as any platform out there. This is probably not a high performance board, but I am in no position to determine just how far it falls short in that role. It is an excellent board to learn on. Because of the 6" thickness, taller paddlers (over 6') will benefit from a longer paddle than provided, but the package paddle is adequate for starting. The pump works well, and even as out of shape as I started the season, I was able to pump it up in under 15 minutes. Great beginner board.
