This inflatable stand up...

This inflatable stand up paddelboard is easy to inflate and deflate for storage in its own back pack style carry bag. Ideal for recreational use and stable enough for me and my black lab. Tracks well and easy to maneouver. Pros Ease of storage, transport, inflation, deflation. Stable enough for recreational use on calm water. Great value for the cost. Cons Usage Used for exercise and exploring bays and inlets on Georgian Bay.

I love this paddle board! It is my first but I have no complaints. Stability is good and I've used it quite a bit this summer. It'll be interesting to see if the same thing holds true next season. Pros Cons Usage

Purchased this board from...

Purchased this board from an online retailer. First time I had it on a large, windless lake I noticed bad tracking problems - it pulled hard to the left - to the point of being unusable. Got home and checked the fin alignment and it was off by ~10 degrees. Checked with the Jimmy Styks and they wouldn't warranty/replace it, their advice was to return it to the place I bought it (which I did). It's a real shame as everything else about the board was pretty nice, I can't believe they would miss such a simple but critical detail. My Tower Adventurer shares a lot of the same parts as the Puffer but seems to have received much better attention to detail and quality control. If you decide to roll the dice and buy one of these online be prepared for the hassle of having to send it back. Pros Price was good, other than the misaligned fin box everything seemed well made Cons A board that tracks hard to one side is unusable Usage Was going to be for exercise and touring but I had to return it and will use my Tower Adventurer instead.

Great board for the price....

Great board for the price. Well constructed of top quality materials. The complete package (board,paddle,pump,carry bag,leash,pressure gauge) all included. Pros Cons Usage Used for lake touring.

This is a 10-6 inflatable board. I am a novice and have only been on one other board. It is very easy to inflate and deflate. It feels a little wobbly compared to the rental board I used, but not unmanageable. I am definitely happy with it as my first board! My seven-year-old can navigate it also. Pros The price I paid was great. It is easy to inflate and deflate and I can pack it in my trunk. Cons It feels a little wobbly and doesn't take waves well. (In fairness, that could be my inexperience!) Usage I use it for touring/exercise on a flat, inland lake.
