My brother has one of these and I love paddling it every time I visit. He lives on the gulf coast of florida and the board handles well in the multiple paddling conditions the area provides. Stable and provides a great work out.
Stable, fun to paddle.
A little slower than my cousins board but he is a professional paddler :).
