Describe Yourself: Beginner

Was this a gift?: No

I’ve taken this out twice now, both alone and with friends. I took a SUP lesson on Maui last year, and got hooked on stand up paddle boarding. One of the friends that joined me on that lesson has also tried out this paddle board and agreed – this is more comfortable to use than the boards we learned on! I don’t see this being the perfect choice for surf – but for a great workout in calm water, especially for a beginner like me – it’s perfect!
