Summary: This is the largest of the NeedleNose Sea Eagles. It is extremely firm at its maximum pressure of 15 psi. Tracking is very true with the built in left and right skegs and the large removable center skeg. The board features d-ring tie-downs as well as bungee storage. The d-rings also serve as anchor points for the optional kayak seat. I have used this as a sit on top kayak and found it very comfortable. The rigid nose on this board slices through the water. The foot pad is comfortable and offers a firm grip while paddling. The basic package includes everything you need for SUPing: board, paddle, pump and backpack. For a little more you can also get a very comfortable inflatable seat.
Pros: Outstanding rigidity comparable to a solid composite board and great tracking.
Cons: At 14 feet once inflated this board takes getting used to when carrying if you don't want to hit someone or something.
Usage: I use this board primarily on the lake.
