Summary: Fantastic board! Perfect for all kinds of boarding from touring, river running to yoga. This board is indestructible but elegant looking at the same time. As a beginner boarder it was easy to learn on and has carried me thru to more advanced area's of the sport.
Pros: Easy to maneuver in all kinds of water conditions. Grip pads are comfortable on the feet and board is very stable. Indestructible and beautiful exterior.
Cons: The weight isn't as heavy as some board but I would like it to be a little lighter.
Usage: Exercise, yoga, touring
