We purchased this board...
We purchased this board from surf tech for my son and thought we were getting a quality product made in the USA but the board delaminated after one year and has become very itchy to pick up. The board is like handling Fiberglass insulation. Customer service said the board can't be in too much sun, crazy,crazy! Stay away from all boards made by this company. Surf tech
Can't leave in sun
Fantastic board! Perfect...
Fantastic board! Perfect for all kinds of boarding from touring, river running to yoga. This board is indestructible but elegant looking at the same time. As a beginner boarder it was easy to learn on and has carried me thru to more advanced area's of the sport.
Easy to maneuver in all kinds of water conditions. Grip pads are comfortable on the feet and board is very stable. Indestructible and beautiful exterior.
The weight isn't as heavy as some board but I would like it to be a little lighter.
Exercise, yoga, touring
