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.
Purchased this for the family to try out on vacation. It came in a large box and my teens were able to put together and inflate on their own. Everyone from kids to older adults tried it and it is well made and help up at it's weight limit without needing additional air. Kids had no problem getting up after a few tries and some even did it with a smaller cousin riding on the back in the ocean. Well worth the money, looking forward to using it for years to come. Comes with decent paddle and backpack to carry. Was able to deflate and fold up and fit paddle, board and pump in bag with no problem.
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
