Summary: The Surfer is a good board for the recreational paddler. This board has been around for awhile, so it has staying power. It's heavy, short and slow. But it's stable and you can't beat the price. I would buy this as a second board to teach others on or to let friends ride. There are some who use it for whitewater. I never have, but I would imagine it would take a beating. There are only a couple decent boards in this price range, I think the Surfer is one of them.
Pros: Durable, beginner board
Cons: Heavy, slow. Might out grow it quickly.
Usage: 2nd board, general cruising

Summary: Love the board, great for beginners! Good family board too (including the dog)!!
Pros: Very stable board regardless of everyone's height and weight. Also because of harbor regulations, tie down in front, holds life vest.
Cons: Weighs about 50 lbs. Also, a little on the slow side.
Usage: 5 days a week in the harbor for exercise and touring.
