Summary: We purchased a used Bic board this spring and love it! We are avid kayakers, we are enjoying the challenge of a new sport. The Bic board is very stable, light weight, easy to transport. We need several more so we can outfit the whole family, ages 52 to 5!

Pros: stable, light weight, easy to use
Cons: none
Usage: exercise, touring

Summary: I bought this board for the best of both worlds - windsurfing and sup'ing. Had it on the gulf coast and was able to use it for both intentions. It sails great!! Kind of like an older long windsurf board. As for SUP, the board is VERY stable and can catch small to medium waves with ease if you wish to surf it in. I plan do do some flatwater river paddling with over the summer.

Pros: Great all around durable board. I will definitely keep this board for recreational sup'ing and surfing as well as light air windsurfing.
Cons: It is heavy and I plan to make a beach dolly for transporting while at the beach. It is rather slow. It is a great workout but you won't be paddling the miles too fast on this thing.
Usage: Windsurf, recreational beach sup, small wave surfing, flat rivers

Summary: First ever board. I'm 5-8", 200lbs, built like a fullback, balance not my strong suit. I've been working with my Endo board and longboard skateboard which has helped a lot. The 11-6 Wind has been perfect for me. I've taken a windsurf lesson from Britt in North Beach Windsurfing, so I knew I'd want to get something with a mast track and daggerboard. The board glides nicely in flat water and does ok when it gets bumpy/windy. I've had it in small surf, kneeling cause I'm not good enough yet to stand, and she behaved predictably and was a ton of fun. The more you SUP, the better you'll get. It is very durable, have been practicing pivot turns, walking board a bit, just trying to get better. Once I get the Windsup rig, a new adventure will start. I'm having a blast with this board.

Pros: Stability, flat water glide and tracking, mast track and daggerboard, although big....handles surf very well. I'm a newbie, since Feb but, my confidence has shot way up! I'm totally hooked on this. Nice construction quality, no doubt..durable.
Cons: If you're not planning on windsurfing, you can save some weight by going the non-wind models. The daggerboard assembly adds lbs and she can get a bit heavy to carry to water.
Usage: Mostly flat water exercise/touring at our local lake in Dade City, FL. Hoping to keep improving to ride small surf. It's a blast!

Summary: Great teaching board.

Pros: First time paddlers have fun on this board. So stable that I was doing head stands on mine last summer!
Cons: That I only have one!
Usage: I introduce people to windsurfing on this board. They excel faster and aren't intimidated by the equiptment. I also fish from this board. That is a real blast!
