Flat water SUP

What is the best flat water SUP? I am looking at possibly getting this one: and wanted to see if anyone on here would recommend it for the flat water or if it should strictly stay in the ocean..

If you're going to be primarily on flat water go with a 14' board if you're 165lbs.+. Definitely more glide per paddle stroke with the longer waterline. Looking for a home for my Tahoe Zephyr 14' Ivory board if your in the vicinity.
You got the right idea,|

as the bow should be somewhat sharp for flat water.

If there isn't wind or waves then your fastest, easiest, best SUP option is to use a canoe. They're already optimized for glide. And cargo. And passengers. Or go C1. Whatever your druthers. The only benefit of a SUP *board* is for surfing and its low windage. Otherwise all benefits -- and they are major -- go to the canoe.

I actually use my old Bic sailboard for a paddleboard. It's wide, stable and hasn't cost me any extra money.
