As a newbie paddler, this board was solid in the water and gave me the confidence to get paddling. Tracks great, very stable in the water. Wide enough and soft pad for doing yoga on the board. Good length and smooth ride on flat lakes. I haven't tried in ocean surf but feel like I would be comfortable talking that too!
Solid, comfortable, not too heavy to carry
Flat lakes, touring

This board is huge and incredibly stable. It would be great for an acro yoga practice on SUP and/or taller individuals. My instructor uses it for carrying extra gear while she is teaching/filming. Two people can fit on this board, in our case the teacher and a musician playing while we did our practice.
Sturdy, great design, stable, large
Not for speed.

I've used a couple of other boards and smashed them up pretty good. I'm sure they were made in China by the auto paint they used to pretty them up. I came across Glide. Made in the US and virtually indestructible! You can just tell the difference in craftsmanship. I know that if I ever drop this board, it's going to survive.
