A lot of waves from the yachts and motor boats but wonderful water
My first board, just bought it spontaneously to try stand up paddling for the first time. And I got caught - it probably won't be my last board though.
So far I only used it in the sea in Southern France. Stability is okay as well as glide/speed/sense of direction. I suppose I could have chosen easier locations without heavy wind and waves as a beginner but I am getting along quite alright so the board is doing fine for me right now. I am still struggling with some maneuvers and got wet a little but I think this is less the board 's fault but rather due to my lack of skills and general conditions.
When I took my 12 year old daughter on board paddling got a little harder but even in the waves the board didn't feel too wobbly (with me being about 2 m/85 kg). But I really don't have a board to compare with.
Pumping up the isup to recommended pressure is done in about 10 mins with the ITIWIT HP pump. After deflating everything (board/paddle/pump/accessories) fits nicely into the bag that comes with the board.
So far the board appears to be manufactured reasonably well. The foam type cover on top has got a few scratches already from hits with the paddle. Grip for my feet is okay though.
Price was €399 plus the pump and cheap AL/plastic paddle. For me this is okay in particular if I really end up using it when holidays are over on weekends. And should I buy another board one day there are already a few family members looking at taking care of
