Summary: We ordered 2 boards and it was send to us in Japan. The communication with the company was perfect. Questions answered, etc. We have been using it since to SUP, tour on lakes around Japan. The board, when inflated (by electric pump) is rock hard and easy to use. The back fin is easy to remove ( without tools). It also means we can then use it in swallow water parts too. We had a manufacturing problem with one of them. internal stitching maybe. Took some pictures, send an email and was send an apology and a new board. Great customer service.
Pros: Easy to use. Nose is hard and cut through small waves easily. fits in any car. Comes with a handy bags to carry. Can use it also as a canoe and paddle around sitting. big so easy to use for suntanning in the middle of the lakes.
Cons: Like any inflatable board, windy days.
Usage: mostly exercise, touring and visiting water entrance shrines and temples. Can be used as good platform for SUP yoga poses.

Summary: Inflateable, portable. Great cruiser. I've taken my 126 to Port Charlotte Fl & St. Croix, USVI. It packs nicely & can float 2 adults. I'm 220 - won't tell my wife's weight;) But I paddled her quite easily. Pierces through the water to the point of rivalling my solid boards - which don't travel well. I bought my wife her own for our anniversary. It's light enough for her to carry competently. We own 5 paddleboards in total: 2 solid & 3 inflateable. A solid 12'6 displacement & a 10'6 all around. It's so much easier manuevering and carrying my 2 126 Sea Eagles. These are my go to paddle boards. They pack nicely & compactly on my boat & don't scratch or dent it or themselves.
Pros: Inflateable, portable. Great cruiser. Handles & tie downs. No tool fin system. can use in shallow water without main skeg. Lightest way to have a 12'6 paddle board.
Cons: The con is what also makes it great - It's an inflateable.
Usage: Travel, touring, snorkle / boarding [USVI] camping, fishing...

Summary: Really surprised after first uses of the board. It has good tracking and stability, really cool for touring, training. Tried it with kids sit on the front, and work good with a nice tracking. The board is easy to inflate to 15 psi with the included pump, and is really solid like a rock at 15 psi. The removable finn is easy to take on and off without any Tools. Afer deflate, it can be stored on the included bag. Great buy !
