I grew up a surfer but wanted to get my wife to enjoy the water too so we ordered this SUP. I thought the inflatable SUP was too good to be true for the price but boy was i wrong. This thing is awesome and we use it all the time takes 10 minutes to inflate with the pump zero leaks pretty stable and can take a beating. If you are thinking about getting into SUPing dont wait just order it you wont regret it. See you in the water.
