Summary: The Tour was my first board. After trying several boards, I decided on this one. It's stable, durable and has good glide. It has been a good first board for me, but now that I have moved from beginner to intermediate, I still don't feel I have outgrown the board. Full confession, the first day I brought the board home, a little miscommunication with the Mrs. resulted in a drop on the sidewalk. This board hadn't even touched the water yet and already I dropped it. When I picked it up, I expected to be heartbroken. Instead, the damage was only surface deep. Since then, I have put this board through its paces. It has held up no problem. I have even punched a couple holes in it thanks to my roof rack. Some ding dough, sandpaper, and flat white paint and it's good as new. Much more durable than some other boards I have seen. Overall, this board cannot be beat. The price is right and customer service at Open Air (Tahoe and Odyessy) was unreal. I called with a question and an actual person answered on the 2nd ring. The board is a good touring board. I have no issues staying with the pack during group paddles. I put my 2nd grader on the front and it did change the stability a little. Overall. This is a great board and I highly recommend it.

Pros: Durable, good glide, and the price
Cons: Wish it was a 12'6
Usage: Flatwater touring

Summary: Raced this board in the Gulf with rough conditions.. I found it to be very stable and moderately fast. I am an intermediaye paddler and didn't fall the entire race when many otherd did. Great all round board for an excellent value.
