Reviews for Surftech 11'6" Balboa by Surftech Paddlesports
Submitted by: Kaa on 2014-12-29
Summary: My daughter recently purchased this board. I have had a chance to use it a few times in the river and inshore mangrove areas. It is very stable and easy to maneuver. I had myself convinced that I wanted an inflatable SUP but the ease of use and light weight makes sense to buy a board of this quality. We are so close to the water that transportation is not an issue.
Pros: Lightweight and stability. Great looking and seems like it is well constructed.
Cons: I thought it was great. No cons for an older guy like myself.
Usage: Rivers and inshore mangroves and barrier islands.

Summary: I bought this paddle board after doing a demo ride. I was able to ride about seven boards and found that this was the best suited for my needs. Found it on Amazon for $200 less than Paddleworks in Clinton, CT and they would not match the price. Amazon sent it and it arrived within three days in perfect condition.
Pros: Looks like a piece of art. Smooth stable ride in flat water and on the ocean.
Usage: Used for exercise and just touring along the shoreline in CT

Summary: Overall a great board, especially for flat water and beginners. I've only been on 3 SUP boards but this one was by far the easiest for me which made it the funnest. I'm new to SUP and am 6ft tall 210 lbs so I liked the larger board for now. It seemed like a decently fast board as well.
Pros: Great fit for my size, seemed fast enough and was very stable.
Cons: Probably not the best board for an intermediate rider or a smaller rider.
Usage: Exercise/flat water fun
