Great board for the enthusiast race advanced and also beginners. The 26" wide board makes it easy for anyone to get into the glide. This means less effort to maintain speed. Board is designed to be used on flatwater says Mark Raaphorst, board shaper. But I have had a great time on it and used it for touring and ultra races too. I've used this for the 220km race in Holland with Black Project Maliko fin twice and it is stable enough to withstand occasional boat wakes and wind chops. The 2017 version is in red, but if you can find the 2015 black version in market, you'd save yourself a bit of money for that same glide. A must try if you're looking to get on a SIC. The EZ grab handle is a signature from SIC. Super comfortable for beach starts!!

Had to dig deep with 35-50 kph winds. Monday or nothing! Took a dunk twice when battling upwind gusts... Thus the stray lines for cover. HAHAH!! You got to learn how to jump off the board sometimes.. And the very reason why paddle leash is so damn important. Wish there was a good way to turn the compass back into the wind. It's a crazy task but somebody had to do it!
