I'm a 64 year old female and live on the windy side of a large inland lake in Ontario, Canada. This board is perfect for the predominant lake conditions. It cuts through the chop and glides beautifully. Initially I stayed close to home on the board but now cruise the lake like I own it. I was definitely sold the right board. Pros Light weight and how it cuts through the chop. Cons Nothing I don't like. My husband now wishes he had one to tour with me. Usage Exercise, touring.

This is a fantastic all-around board. Lightweight, stylish (love the bamboo), stable, and tracks real well. Unfortunately I've never had a chance to use it for surfing, mainly flatwater paddling. It handles choppy water pretty well, though it's not the fastest board you could buy. Definitely a great board for beginners to learn on, and just as fun for more experienced SUPers. Pros Lightweight. Stylish. Stable. Tracks great. Cons The finish scratches easily, so you have to be very careful around rocks and tree stumps and the like. I'd recommend some rail tape to keep the sides from scratching if you plan on using it in lakes and rivers. Usage I use this board mostly for leisurely paddling and some touring. It's built for surfing as well, but we have no waves in central Ohio :-(

Amazing board! Despite being 11.2 this board is really nimble when I want it to be surfing and yet stable when I'm lake paddling. It holds my heavier body and I absolutely love the bamboo finish. Pros Looks amazing great mix of stability and responsiveness Cons could be a little higher volume for its size Usage exercise, surf
