Summary: My cruise ship company used these as rental boards because of their buoyancy and durability. I'd instruct guests how to sup with this board. So it could take a beating. Overall the board is very similar to the Bic ACS sup line. I didn't care too much for the rounded nose (it made surfing more difficult but not impossible) It is on the heavy side, but that is to be expected with the construction material and size. Due to its size it is cumbersome.
Cons: Weight, pressure dings too easily.
Usage: Lakes, bay, ocean. great rental board for teaching and instruction.
