Nice big board at great...

Nice big board at great value.. It's been through a ton and seems to hold up well. Broke the plastic on the end of hose on pump (probably my fault) and Wakooda sent me a new one no questions asked. If you buy from them directly it's cheaper than Amazon since they give free shipping. I bought this last year and to try an inflatable to supplement my 4 hard boards. I paddle nearly every day when the weather is nice. This board has been great, I would say it's nearly as good as hard board, maybe just a little less glide. I just ordered a Starboard Astro Atlas Xen, (supposed to be one of the best inflatables made) at about twice the price. I'll post a review comparing them after a few paddling sessions. Pros Feels super durable. Nice not to have to worry about dents and dings like a hard board. Go ahead and hit the dock, no big deal. Very stiff at 15 psi. Super easy to travel with. Great company to deal with. Cons Don't love the fin arrangement. Wish it a more standard center fin that could be attached and detached when it was inflated. Paddle it came with was heavy junk, aren't they all? Usage I paddle mostly in lakes bays and the Hudson.

This is a great inflatable...

This is a great inflatable for a larger person, if you need room for gear, or plan to bring a small child or dog with you. It comes with a bag, pump and 3 piece paddle. It also has 3 fins, and the middle fin is removable. Pros The size, durability, easy to inflatable/deflate and lightweight. I've paddled it with a 6 & 8 y.o. riding with me. Cons 2 side fins aren't removable Usage I paddle it on lakes, in slow moving rivers and small rapids. Can carry some decent amount of gear.
