This is a very small board with low volume. If you're an adult, this board is way too small and not floaty enough unless you are an expert, in which case you'll want a much better quality board anyway. I can use it as a long body board. It's OK for children, but as a beginner board the child should be less than 60 lbs in order to have enough floatation and stability for them to learn. My 67 lb daughter did quite well on a standard children's beginner board but really struggled with this board. It's so short she was either nose diving or sinking the back. The shortness makes proper body and foot positioning critical.
