I've been using this board for 4 years now...had to replace the soft deck couple years ago but you can't destroy this thing. I use it 50-50 for windsurfing and standup. Excellent light air windsurfer/freestyle board, great paddler for smooth flat water not so much in waves. Great board to share with your spastic non atheltic friends.
Fun,multi purpose, indestructable.
Soft deck didn't last to long
It's big and long, not the easiest to load unload ect

12.6 and 30", it comes with several choices in surfaces including a set up as hybrid for a sail. his board has an amazing glide, great on flat water, but has the nose and rails for ocean rollers and surf.
The stability of the board and its amazing glide makes you feel like there is great energy distribution without drag. An excellent board to learn on, without the danger of out-growing. I carry a cooler on it for longer tours. It is not as fragile as other boards and the inevitable dings don't send immediate alarms about danger to the core. It can be configured for a sail, and will be perfect for learning.
Mostly for touring and exercise on flat water, I have raced it a little against racing boards and faired better than many. I have also brought it to the ocean as an entry way to learn the mechanics of paddle surfing.

This is an excellent board I really enjoy it out in the ocean, off West Maui I feel very confidant with it in all conditions
