Summary: Love the board! I've been kayaking for the past 4 or 5 years and standing up is awesome! It feels very stable on small inland lakes, even during windy conditions. I have yet to try river boarding, but I feel confident this board will work well.
Pros: It's light, easy to carry, and moves well in the water. The foam padding on the top is gentle on your feet and knees.
Cons: As I've said, I love the board. This comment is in general. I didn't realize when I made the purchase it should be stored in a relatively cool area. Michigan summers can really heat up a garage. So, identifying a decent storage place is my only complaint.
Usage: The board was purchased for recreation and exercise.

Summary: good entry level all around board
Pros: nice looking, affordable, works well in downwind surf, planes up easily.
Cons: Poorly conceived venting system, somewhat soft and deforms if set for any time on an uneven surface like a small rock hidden in grass. The adjustable carbon paddle does not hold it's adjusted position well
Usage: All around use in a not for profit stand up paddling club: The Gorge SUPer Club, Inc in Hood River OR
