I've had my Talon for a year and have SUP'd Ocean, rivers, bays, lakes, even tried surfing in some decent sized waves. The Creed Talon has been excellent in all conditions. It's fast, stable, tough, and beautiful. I sup with my dog, and have their seal of approval as well. One word of caution, these boards are beautiful so you will be stopped constantly by admirers wanting to talk about your board! I was concerned about buying sight unseen over the internet, but the guys at Creed are great! I spoke with them several times before purchasing, and they were friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I highly recommend.
Everything, it's a great do it all board.
The handle (removable), don't discount this as it's a great feature
All around... everything
WOW! Talk about a...
WOW! Talk about a beautiful board, this one you should hang up on your wall as art. Stiff and solid in every way. The sobering swishing sound while planing is worth every penny! It's smooth, agile and super fast on glass like flat water. No complaints as this is the best performer of (HARD) all around style boards that I have demo-ed to date. As you experience this board, you will instantly decide that this board is for you. Buying a Creed Talon SUP is the superier choice. The Talon series offers the best bang for the buck with it's unSUPerable flatwater performance. Creeds Talon series engulfs a never ending smile and with a bit more effort, one should be able to keep up with a cruiser style touring board. Unfortunately, the Talon I demo-ed was borrowed for many hours on multiple days in a weeks time. Every second I was on this board, I was wished it was mine. For storage and transport resons, I own an inflatable Cruiser V-Max air that I love and is super fast.(See that review on this site) Dictionaries should add a picture of the talon next to the word euphoria.
Fast, excellent value, agile, beautiful graphics/design, superlight, confidence knowing you made the right choice, glide and planing ability with swishing sound, and best of all, the most fun board on the market!
Touring, exercise and for just plain fun!
