I am not a competitive paddler, don't push my gear very hard. This paddle was a great price, and worked really well. Loved it. But then I was about 2 miles from shore one day when the paddle cracked off. It left me with a long paddle back to shore with only the little piece of paddle that hadn't cracked-off.
I bought this paddleboard yesterday for our family, none of which have ever tried paddle boarding before. It was great! The board exceeded my expectations, of durability and being beginner friendly. Everyone of us were able to stand up and feel comfortable. I even have a broken wrist in a brace and I was able to maneuver the board easily and with confidence. My young daughter was able to give her brother a ride. We looked at other types of paddleboards and went with the Amped board because of the durability of the product. I am not worried that my kids will tear wholes in it and ruin it. I can't wait to get out on as many lakes as possible this Summer
This paddle is as light as a feather. The only issue was the clip and pin on the adjustable clamp fell out after the first use. I'm guessing it was just a fluke. Overstock was very helpful and replace the entire paddle free of charge.
