If you don't live near the coast or large bodies of water the inflatable Tonga board is a great board for most. Traveling with this board is very simple and setting it up/packing it up is a quick process. I would recommend to anyone, especially to SUP beginners and people looking for an extra board that would be hassle-free to share with others!

Pros
Good stability
Great looking
Easy to travel with

Cons
It rides differently then solid/high-quality boards
Usage
Used for fun

I had the opportunity to try this out a demo events a few times and then a friend of mine won one so I had a few more chances to try it out. Overall I wasn't really impressed with the Tonga at all. The stability was ok but not what I would have expected for a board of this size. The quality also seemed to be not great either. Upon researching it seems this board is definitely a cheaper intro model so I suppose you get what you paid for. Probably a decent board for someone who wants a SUP without a significant investment and does not have plans to do more than lake paddling

Pros
OK stability.
Cheap.
Good for smaller sized beginners

Cons
Stability could be better.
Cheap
Usage
Lakes only
