Summary: I am a petite woman, under 5' tall...definitely vertically challenged! In looking for a paddle board, I researched boards that were made specifically for women with criteria on weight and also on usage. I live in an area where several lakes blend into each other so I wanted a board that was made for touring and would also handle the small to medium waves. Weighing in at only 23 lbs I was able to carry the board with ease even though the frame was 12'6". In my first outing, I found that the displacement hull allowed it to glide gracefully and maneuver through small waves smoothly, allowing me to easily hold my balance and keep my confidence up. My first tour trip was 14 miles around a small lake and I found the deck to be comfortable to stand on and balance for that distance without feeling any stress on my legs or feet. I especially like the fact that both the front and the back areas have places to attach cargo nets for gear. And last, but not least...the Tahoe Bliss Sport is beautiful to look at, both in and out of the water. I look forward to my next trip on this beauty!
Pros: Everything! But, especially how well it handles and how straight it tracks.
Cons: I have not found anything that I don't like about it. It is a perfect fit for what I need.
Usage: I use it to race and tour.
