Summary: Wow, the SPK-2 is so easy to inflate, deflate and store. I was amazed at how stable this SUP is and I am a newbie to the SUP world. The SPK2 made it very easy for me to learn quickly and feel quite comfortable on my own.
Pros: Stores in small places, like the trunk of my car. Extremely Stable
Cons: The pump could be battery operated and then would be smaller for easy storage.
Usage: I take it when I go fishing so that I can get into areas normally not able to by foot. It is a lot of fun.

Summary: just purchased it. I had take it to the water twice and so far so good. Im very happy considering its the first time I do this sport. I think if i can do it just like that, everyone can do it. I practiced it on a lake/canal. jetskies were all over the place making waves, etc... I didn't drop to the water. Of course it shakes when waves around and due to my lack of experience too. But I was able to handle the situation just fine. the more I use it the more experienced the more i can handle balance. I will keep it going here for a while until I become better then I will head to the open ocean were wind/waves/people will be into consideration. Lets just hope this board will last under normal use conditions. I will post an update in the near future just to see if I still this happy. its now April 2014. wait I forgot about the manual pump: its hard which means a good pre work out before entering the water. I weight 176 pounds and I was able to inflate it to 10psi which should be 15psi. Well, 10psi it performed very well. It holds its forms and stayed completely flat. Once I become an expert and wont need the work out, then I will purchased an electric pump. This is just to the fact to make more enjoyable the moment since i know myself and will paddle for a longer time getting the work out that im looking for. Not to mention I add a kayak seat and attach it to the D rings and now I can be seated and all....also got me a dual paddle of course. I will give 5 stars in the future if this board can handle me and the use as it is so far. Another reviews said about after a while some bubbles will show up in the bottom of it.....hope its not my case. Hey, I paid $460 for it. Others claim to be over $700 so I hope mine will last.
Pros: As stated above
Cons: As stated above

Summary: This is a great inflatable for the price (I paid $399). I have not had an inflatable before but bought this one for my daugther who does a lot of traveling. She has since taken it to California, Texas, and Costa Rica.
Pros: The 6 inch thickness gives it enough stiffness to avoid the bend that some inflatables have. It is able to ride waves great or is also a great board for flat water.
Cons: The pump that comes with it is worthless. Definitely invest in an electric pump.
Usage: Used for exercise, mild surf, touring, fishing.
