I have taken this board out about 6 times since purchasing it ~2 months ago, and have had a blast. It is easy to get in and out of the car, and relatively quick to inflate, although the last few PSI are a workout, for sure. I made the mistake the first time out in forgetting to have the valve released, so when I took the hose off after inflating it, all the air rushed out and I had to do it again. Now I remember to have the valve up, and it's no problem at all. The paddle is super cheap and came apart after about 4 outings. I glued it and it works for now, but I'm definitely looking for a new paddle. Otherwise, I think this was a great purchase for the money!
My first time as a stand up paddler and this kit did not disappoint. The kit has everything, the fin is easy to attach and detach-no issues with it breaking! The pump is easy to use, the board is easy to deflate, the paddle is good for a first time user. I would buy again, easy.
I have a fantastic, high end sup and wanted a second for family and friends to use, so I bought this board at a fraction of the price of my first (and different brand board). You get what you pay for. Perhaps it is because the psi is not indicated anywhere on paperwork or website that I find this board incredibly unstable. No way can a beginner stand on this, so it has become "my" board instead of my guest's board. It's strength is how light and easy this is to carry around and pump up, but I also think it is it's weakness.
After renting a few different SUPs and paddles I knew I wanted a carbon fiber paddle when it came time to buy. I could not be more pleased. It's so comfortable and super strong. Have used in fresh water river with hard current and ocean. Highly recommend.
