Summary: I love my board. the stability makes me feel safe. It is fun to take my grandaughter along for a ride on front with face in water and her snorkle and mask she sees everything underwater. I really enjoyed touring the little islands in the lower keys and what a great workout in the wind!
Pros: love the stability. has never flipped in wind. can take passenger on front if i want
Cons: a little difficult with size and weight, loading on top of an suv and carrying it if I have any distance to water
Usage: in the florida keys , mostly flat water for exercise and touring

Summary: A larger all-purpose board that is a joy on flatwater and is quite capable in chop and waves. My board has been used by a number of beginners and is a good board for introducing large people and kids to SUP. It's durable, so you don't need to worry about beginners dinging it. Works well for me and my dog.
Pros: Tough, durable board. Large padded surface for your feet. Capable of supporting large people and is pretty efficient for the width.
Cons: No cons. I may buy a longer faster board someday.
Usage: Touring, exercise.

Summary: Had this board since July and got out 30 or 40 times so far, mostly on fairly calm ocean. Well made, good finish,reasonable weight for it's size. At 220L it will float anybody but still handles well. Stable and easy to paddle, I haven't fallen off yet. For my size (220)it was a perfect choice. My wife got the 10'2" and loves it. I would buy this again.
Pros: Well Made Super stable and floaty
Cons: Nothing really
Usage: Ocean touring near our home. 3 to 5 miles at a time.
