Bought this after looking at family boards and realising that they where just too big and expensive. Used a handful of time on lakes in the Lake District. On the canals and on the sea. Very impressed with this board. Inflation when it’s 17 psi is a pain but got a new electric pump that goes to 20 psi now. Overall it’s a great buy especially if you have kids or a wife to bring along.
The board has a lighter construction than I’m used to with other inflatables I have but doesn’t seem to influence anything other than making it easier to fold and carry! Once inflated to 17psi (5mins ish with a red Titan)it has a small amount of deflection underfoot, more than I’m used to with my solo race inflatable with battens, but is otherwise surprisingly stiff bearing in mind it’s relatively modest deck to bottom thickness. I was worried about the 35” width making it cumbersome to handle but it doesn’t and it provides a super stable platform for 2. It was my wife’s first time on a sup ever and we managed to stay dry despite her balance not being great. It tracks well and turned quickly once my wife mastered a cross bow turn at the front with me paddling opposite side on the rear. It’s long enough to enable easy paddle side swap for the person at the back without hitting the front person. The quality seems good, the fittings/bungee/webbing features work really well for stowing big stuff or bits and bobs. I even like the colourway. All in all I think it’s a very good value board that provides a relatively low cost route into the tandem sup world. It was a last minute purchase decision made to capitalise on my wife’s interest so I didn’t want to spend a fortune in case she hated it! She didn’t and I don’t think a more expensive option would, anyway, provide any better solution for what we need. I’ve also paddled it solo and find it surprisingly fast! The only slight negative I can think of is the unusual (to me..) fin box arrangement and, arguably, slightly flimsy looking fin. However, It doesn’t influence anything in terms of how we use the board and spares look cheap!
