Summary: I have encountered problems with this board. It is fine for flat water, but as soon as I took this out in small waves were water was getting on top of the board I had problems. I didn't even realize till we were back on shore that water had been getting in the board (since it is hollow).
Pros: It is very sturdy and stable. I had no problems staying on the board in waves my first time on it. I do like the compartment for carrying things.
Cons: It is heavy and awkward to carry, and the fact that it took in water worries me.
Usage: Exercise and touring

Summary: I bought this board for my girlfriend's birthday and hit a home run with it! She absolutely loves it! She finds it very easy to control and very stable. She also loves how she is up high on the water and can see so much better. If she ever lets me play with it I am going to try and fly fish off of it. Should be a blast. So far she has only paddled it on a small lake with flat water but cannot wait to take it out on a larger lake and play in some waves. Also looking forward to take our two boys, a golden retriever and black lab, for rides on it. We are ordering a second one soon for me! The one pictured is the older model that had some leakage issues. The new model is red fading to orange and leakage issues have been resolved. We are going to use it as a tender to our sailboat this next sailing season.
Pros: Fun, fun, fun! Really like the stability, durability, price, the foam pad on top.
Cons: It is a bit heavy and there is no place near us that stocks them. Shipping cost are high if you have to have it shipped.
Usage: So far just used it for fun on flat water lakes.
