Great quality stand up...
Great quality stand up paddle board. I've used it on lakes so far, no rivers yet but I am very comfortable with this board that I know it will be great on rivers and maybe someday the ocean! My husband owns a Solstice board and this one just seems to better quality. He's already had a few things go wrong with his board after 4 or 5 trips. I love my board, I've taken several family members for a ride. I love that it rolls up and you can put it in a bag and take it anywhere! The pin for the fin works excellent and has prevented me from losing it many times. I am so happy with this board and I can't wait to go SUPing again!
It can roll up and be taken anywhere. I am fairly hard on the board and it has done well. The pin in the fin is necessary, I can't imagine trying to sup with out it.
I dislike manually inflating it with a hand pump, but honestly its not that big of a deal.
I mainly just tour different lakes. I've taken it several lakes in Nebraska and one in Colorado. Because of it's flexibility being an inflatable, I plan on taking a river trip or even an ocean trip at some point.
After having several...
After having several opportunities to use the 11' inflatable SUP from Lucky Bums I have to say that I have not been impressed. Frankly it felt like I was paddling a barge rather than a SUP. The board just does not do well in turning or waters that are not calm. I did find that the board tracked reasonably well. I think this SUP would be ok for beginners but for the price I think beginners could do better with other boards like the NRS Baron 4 or 6. Definitely not a board I would recommend for anyone with paddling experience or expecting to use it often.
Simple to use.
Difficult to steer
