This board is slow, heavy, bulky, and awesome! I've had one for years, and it's incredibly safe and stable. What it lacks in speed it makes up in stability and flotation. A great board for exploring rocky coves and rivers where a more fragile board will get torn to pieces.
This board is indestructible. It also is great for family vacations because it can carry an adult and two kids! It also turns pretty quickly/ The four handles make it easy to carry and attach a second leash for a child.
It's slow and heavy. What do you expect?
I use it for casual touring and teaching beginners.
