Summary: This was my first SUP purchased specifically for paddle surfing and I was never an avid surfer. But at 225lbs (which limits my selection) this board has held up and I am enjoying a new sport and great workout.
Pros: Big rails and very stable for someone 200-240. Good beginner and fun longboard board. Fun and VERY LIGHT and not too long. Long carves but responsive rocker. Good flatwater board for house guests. Amazingly light.
Cons: I wiped out and somehow punched a 4-inch crack in it through the padding -- from my paddle handle, I think. I am not sure that the coco-mat is not a compromise in surface strength, but I cannot say this with certainty. It also seems prone to cosmetic cracks along the white parameter.
Usage: Popular surf spots in Huntington Beach (South Bolsa) and Seal Beach (1st St.) Meaty conditions.
