      La planche est stable. La pompe livrée avec le SUP n’est pas très fiable, manomètre capricieux.

      My first board, never even rode any other before. So I was (and is) a totally beginner when purchased.
      It's destinated as an allrounder for beginners, but I must say, it really isn't.
      Realatively narrow (30" - 75cm).
      And the board shape isn't really an allrounder either.
      Not bad for recreational paddling, but don't expect the stability of an allrounder (usually with flat, round bow). Something between an allrounder and touring boards.
      Bow is somewhat pointed as a touring board, but not as sharp as a true touring, and the aft is more like an allrounder:D.

      Don't get me wrong. I love this board, it's always awesome to paddle. It's sensably faster than a true allrounder (like RedPaddleCo's Ride).
      Rigidity isn't bad either (compared to the max pressure of only 15PSI considered low these days), I saw much softer boards for much-much more money. And I usually only pump it to 12-14PSI.

      The carry backpack (which can be folded to small pack out of use) is the simplest and most genius solution I ever saw. Not that easy to carry as a wheeled case would be, but it's comfortable.
      And Aqua Marina boards far the lightest on the market as I saw.
      RedPaddleCo spent a ton of money on research to develop their MSL technology and with that bring their boards' weight down to around 10Kg. This boards is 7,5Kg. I don't know or say it's better or worse... but it's lighter to carry on your back. :D

      Overall, if you are up to a bit challenge, this is a great, budget board for starters. But expect you'll have some hard times at the beginning if you have such a bad balance stability as I do (did - hopefully:D).
