Summary: I love this SUP!!! Such a blast to paddle, fish and play, and you can't find a more bombproof SUP for your buck. Roto-milled and capable of carrying 350 lbs, anyone can have fun on this. The front deck attachment has a place for your water bottle, paddle holder at about a 35 degree angle, 2 fishing rod protectors, bungees and straps for whatever you want to store on the front. I personally keep a large tackle bag with rod holders on the front held down by the bungees for trolling. There are brass inserts in 6 places on the SUP for ram mounts, camera mounts, fishing rod holders and comes with a GoPro mount. On the rear of the SUP you will find more straps for an ice chest or other gear plus bungees to hold your fishing rods or paddle. The new foam membrane covering almost the entire walking surface of the board is firm and comfortable for long periods of standing. Speaking of standing, the stability of this SUP is magnificent!! You can literally stand on the edge with your feet hanging halfway over and the SUP will not turn over, though you may lose your balance and fall LOL. Jackson used the pontoon design and scupper ports like they do on their other fishing kayaks to help balance speed, support and stability as there is no foam inside the hull. And if you are looking for speed, this SUP may not be your exact cup of tea due to weighing 69 lbs. For tracking, there are 2 removable fins underneath that work fairly well. If you get tired of standing, feel free to sit, kneel or sit on an ice chest to paddle without worry of tipping. I have comfortably fished on this multiple times and have yet to fall even while fighting a 5+lb largemouth bass this past week. I live on the windy, flatwaters of Oklahoma so I have yet to try it for its other ratings of being ocean worthy and able to handle class 3 rapids. But I can see it handling those challenges with ease. I purchased this SUP having in mind that I wanted to be able to pond hop, fish, play, take the girlfriend out for a picnic on the water and be able to have my dog enjoy my adventures along side me and it has met all my expectations with ease! Great exercise too!!
