Summary: Great beginner board but out grew if after 6 months and was ready for something lighter and faster. Also, had an issue with paint chipping and pealing.
Pros: Good stable board.
Cons: Heavy. Was too slow to race even in the surf class.
Usage: Exercise and racing.

Summary: bought this board for my 4 kids at Christmas 2012 and after 2 times out the tail end started flaking and the shell seemed really soft and spongy in some spots. My foot actually caused the bamboo looking area under the elastic strap to cave in
Pros: Only used twice but manageable size and different look
Cons: Seems defective in that the exterior is flaking off and cracks easily - we have had tons of surf boards as we live at the jersey shore so we understand that these things can be fragile and need to be handled with care but this paddle board seems defective it should not be cracking and caving in on the top where you are standing - really weird
Usage: lake and ocean
