Summary: This board is so much fun. It is my first board. The included kayak package is a really fun alternative. I really loved the service I received from Newport Vessels who included another fin in my package.
Pros: Inflates very easily and maintains a great shape and rigidity. It paddles and tracks very well. I tried it without the center fin and it seems it would maneuver really well in the rivers. I weigh in at 200 and it supports me and my dogs really well. Its almost too much fun.
Cons: I wish it inflated itself but I will put up with the traveling ease the inflatable presents.
Usage: Lakes and hopefully soon, surfing and river work.

Cons: Wish it had a better paddle but no biggy
Usage: yoga, exercise and fun on the river
