I have not been on any type of board for over 25 years. My son in law purchased a used Atlas and I tried it on a whim. I love it and am back on the water again at 63. I now own 2 Atlas ,so guest can ride along , and am out almost every day. Now I am surfing some small waves with the the Atlas , what a blast , my next purchase will be a Starboard SUP for surfing.
Stable and easy for everyone to use. Tracks straight with 3 fins. Carries very well from handhold.
Touring ,exercise and small wave surfing

11'2" touring board. Great starter board that is very good in a variety of conditions.
Lightweight and good all rounder.
May need to send to shop for dings rather than home repair.
Touring and some surf.

I taught individuals of all ages on this board on a lake in the Northern United States. Needless to say, this board was great for learning on as it offered incredible stability which I found to be one of the leading concerns for new SUP users. My clientele also enjoyed that this SUP was still agile even though it was so stable. We've taught yoga on these boards, children, adults, individuals with mental disabilities, and veterans whom have suffered from physical wounds and we never ran into a client who was incapable of using this board. Overall, I would suggest this board to anyone!
