I purchased 2, 1 for me and 1 for my wife. We are beginners. This board is the best beginner board we found-comparing online and to a local Hobie dealer. It is very beginner friendly and we use them on both a lake and a river. The width is wonderful in helping beginners learn properly how to paddle and maneuver the board. The soft top is the way to go,
This board rates a BIG 5!!!!!

This is a great beginner SUP. The board is easy to maneuver and control for a beginner. It is wide and stable. The weight and carry handle is perfect. The paddle is great. I compared this SUP to the Hobbie and the ISLE is the winner.
I highly recommend this board for anyone, especially beginners.

I researched for a beginner and purchased the ISLE Soft top Cruiser. This is a great beginner board, wide, stable, and easy to learn on. I recommend this board for beginners and advanced beginners. I am already looking forward to upgrading with ISLE.

This is a great board for beginners and reasonably priced with the 2 board deal. I use it in a bay and it is very stable even when the waves get a little choppy. ISLE always has GREAT customer service. Very responsive and helpful with any questions I had.
Great first board for beginners
Kind of heavy and awkward to hold without straps
Fantastic board for this...
Fantastic board for this beginner! Stable, wide, maneuverability are all key points that make this board perfect for heading out here in the Ocean State. As a new boarder, I was hesitant about the tipping aspect and ability to actually have fun on my first time out, but I've had so much fun learning with this board, that I haven't really needed to worry about becoming discouraged or fearful. Great choice by a great company!
Stable, lightweight, price point.
Already have a gouge in the bottom and could use an additional eye hook or otherwise for attaching a wet bag or small cooler.
Touring and exercise....2-3 times a week
I bought this board since...
I bought this board since I'm new to the sport of SUP and it seemed like a great entry level board. I've been out to a local a reservoir a handful of times and I have been pleased so far. The board is easy to use and stable enough that I've yet to fall in the water. This is a good thing as the water was in the mid-40's the first time I went.
Lightweight and easy to carry.
The Soft Serve Soft Top has a smooth top. It requires a little more work to stay balanced. This could be a challenge in moving water.
Received this soft top as...
Received this soft top as a gift and I was delighted. The board is super stable and has been easy to navigate for many size paddlers over the past year. We attempted to put someone about 300lbs on it and it definitely swamped the board a little, but we expected that. It's a little slow but that's to be expected in a beginner model board. It's definitely got some dents in it, but it's held up amazingly well for the amount of use it's seen which his every weekend all day May-September. I do keep it out of the direct sun and I expect this board to last a long time. 5 stars for its category
Light weight, easy to move, very stable.
Dents easily (it's foam so that's expected), too slow to keep up with epoxy boards
Tidal creeks, ocean front with chop, exercise, raced it once and will never do that again.

I purchased the 10'8" soft top in the winter of last year while I was living in the Poconos in Pennsylvania, during the summer, I used it as my first SUP, which was great for flat water riding. Recently, I moved to Port Charlotte, Florida. Brought the board down with me, and took it out for the first time to Cayo Costa Island on the Gulf Of Mexico, Though, there isn't much surf on the Gulf Coast of Florida, it was nice to know that the Soft Serve, was able to preform in flat water, and open ocean conditions.
Wide Enough so anyone can easily stabilize themselves.
Great for beginners.
The Soft top makes for easy foot traction on the board.
Durable (To an extent)
Foam is easily pierced through if board is laid down on an hidden nail.
Fin box started protruding from board.

Love the board! Very light weight and easy for me to put up on top of my vehicle. I like the size of it for paddling. It is narrower than I am use to, but it makes me work harder to balance which is what I am looking for. Very happy so far.
