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.
My wife and I were house guests last summer at a friends home in the San Juan islands. They owned two of these paddle boards that we used daily to get around the bay. They were so much fun! They were light but sturdy and really felt like a quality product! Because there were so many of us up at the house, we went into town and rented a few more paddle boards that were a different brand. Without question, the lifetime products were much better. Arguments were constant over who got the lifetime products and who got stuck with the other brands.
