Summary: This is a great stable board. Well put togher and solid. It is sharp looking yet versatile.
Pros: This is a sharp board that is also durable. It can take a beating and whatever you throw at it. I lost a fin going down some rapids and did not realize it until the end of the 5 hour paddle. It tracked really well and I was able to get another fin quickly and off I went.
Cons: I wish it was a little faster on flat water but that was not what it was designed for.
Usage: I use this board going down river and catching rapids, cruising on a flat water lake and catching some waves at the ocean. I use this board several times a week.

Summary: Super great board. got it in the inflatable version for travel (comes in a 70 litre pack, essentially) and love it! was worried about the stiffness but it's almost as stiff as a foam board at 15psi. have bounced it off everything from razor reef to turtles and it keep comin back. a fun board, at 9' shorter than your average and pretty maneuverable even for it's width. makes a stable platform for everything, but i mostly use it for surfing! would recommend this to anyone up to 220 pounds, as a surf sup or a fishing vessel, although it is a big plow-y for cruising. I Live in tofino,B.C. and have a place on Molokai, HI.
Pros: Nimble even for it's width. Stable. Fun to surf. Portable. Stiff.
Cons: maybe not as much rocker as I would like (this is contradictory to that, but,) plows a little when paddling flatwater
Usage: Surfing- lots up to head high and hollow Fishing, spear and reel Chasing whales

Summary: I'm riding a Whopper AST Silver. I am a longtime surfer and began paddleboarding in waves this spring. The Whopper is very responsive in the surf for a large board and very stable.
Pros: It's a great all around board.Because of the good amount of rocker, it will not nose dive, which is really nice when you are learning.
Cons: There are no cons.
Usage: I use it to surf and to cruise the lake and river,and it is also great for yoga.
