Great starter board for my...

Great starter board for my entire family. We use the board every weekend in the summer. We also have a Bic Ace Tek as well. The Hobie (I believe is also made by Bic) has been used successfully to start wakesurfing, on flat calm water, fishing, in big waves on the Great Lakes, and simple paddling with the dog. Pros Stable, comfortable, and durable. We have had small children to first time seniors enjoy this board. Cons The board is very durable, but dents easily, and there is no way to repair. The textured padding was much more important for barefoot comfort than expected. Wearing some kind of water shoes is desirable. Usage Short touring (1-2 miles), general recreation, goofing off with the dog!

Great entry level board!...

Great entry level board! Light, durable easy to learn entry SUP board. Pros Stable, comfortable all around board. Sturdy design is great for all ages and family use. Cons After advancing, this board could be a little bulky, slow for a more experienced paddler. Usage Recreational exercise, lake and river

My cruise ship company...

My cruise ship company used these as rental boards because of their buoyancy and durability. I'd instruct guests how to sup with this board. So it could take a beating. Overall the board is very similar to the Bic ACS sup line. I didn't care too much for the rounded nose (it made surfing more difficult but not impossible) It is on the heavy side, but that is to be expected with the construction material and size. Due to its size it is cumbersome. Pros Durability. Cons Weight, pressure dings too easily. Usage Lakes, bay, ocean. great rental board for teaching and instruction.
