There's not really a recognised brand of SUP (that I could find anyway) so I went on the golden ratio for beginners of 10ft 6 x 32-33 x 5-6. This fit the bill so I purchased. I have to say it's more than exceeded my expectations. It fits in the back of the car and can accommodate two reasonable sized adults. It's very stable and moves through the water much faster than I expected. The adjustable paddle is excellent - I was able to do this standing on the board after an hour, it's that simple. Pumping it up is easy until you get to about 8 PSI. After that it gets progressively harder. It's fine for an adult with some weight behind them but, for instance, my 12 year old son put his whole body weight behind it around 10 PSI and it didn't budge an inch. To give you an idea of how long it takes to set up, we parked the car, walked to the waters edge, pumped it up, put on our wet suits and were in the water within 30 mins. I think that's pretty fast (and that was our first time). Overall I'm really very pleased with this SUP and look forward to using it more and more throughout the summer and beyond.
Solid board, came with all advertised accessories and have had no issues with it. Taken it out the past couple of months at least once a week. Quick and easy to set up and pack away. The ability to clip on the seat and use the double paddle and the board as a kayak is great if the water is a little too choppy to stand. Would definitely recommend.
Brilliant board for the price! The single action pump does work and you can get the board up to 15psi, it was a bit of a work out on the arms but not as bad as I thought it might be from reading other reviews. Just take a few breaks and you will have it up in 10 minutes. The board feels and looks solid, accessories ok but not as high quality as the board itself. I am 15.5 stone and 6’2 and had no concerns regarding the board sinking or not taking my weight. Started on my knees but did stand for about 2 minutes! I was lucky enough to purchase this package at £269 so do keep your eyes peeled as the price tends to jump around a bit. Final bit of advice, when deflating do not push the valve pin down too quickly as you will probably blow the valve, just release the air slowly. Great purchase, have fun!
Once inflated it looks amazing, comes with the leash, seat to change into a kayak, changing bag, waterproof phone case. Brilliant
I've been searching for a while for my first paddle board. Wanted one that could convert to a kayak. This one came with seat and adaptable paddle just the job. Item was as described and is a good quality product. All items described were included. The pump is good quality and board inflates quickly. It is had work getting the last psi or so. The only thing was the package contained to identical paddle ends therefore I could not assemble the kayak paddle. I emailed and got a response a day or so later apologising for the error and advising a replacement would be sent out. Two days later a complete new paddle arrived. Brilliant. Great board, great service.
Size is true, easy to set up and a quality product which is being enjoyed by all the family. Provided you do so in a certain way all items will fit back in the carry bag too. Only comment would be straps on carry bag are a little thin and are uncomfortable to wear as a result. Would recommend padding out if you plan to carry on back for more than a few minutes.
Impressive board, I’ve had lessons before purchasing a board and looked around for a board. The design must have changed over time as mine looks like the photo on Amazon advert, and not like ones from photos people have been posting from the past. I went on the impressive specs of the board and weight the board can hold too. The finish on this board is seriously impressive. I was a little worried at first that I didn’t know the brand, I was new to the scene. But when shown up it’s fantastic and can’t fault it. The bag straps are a little shady and can see them breaking in time so looking for a better bag. The fin is fine and must have been redesigned as it screws in fine and feels very secure. I’m not a fan of the ore and already looking at upgrading it. The board itself feels amazing and light, so on the river and calm water it turns fast and goes so quick. Feels very stable and manoeuvrable. Friends who have been paddle boarding for a long time have had ago and been seriously impressed with the board also. Can recommend it. Couple of little things I would change but out the board it’s fine. :)
I ordered this item and when arrived turned out it is a faulty product. One of the D-ring is missing and not usable as seen on pictures with the seat attached. I tried to get in touch with customer services but none of the telephone numbers are live, can't get through to anyone. There was no invoice in my parcel when arrived. Very poor service. Can you advise about getting a replacement

Birthday present to my shocked husband. Easy to blow up and looked very stable. He was a beginner but managed to stay up on the board for twenty minutes (the sea was calm). He loved it! Planning to get another for the family.
Paddleboard is fantastic and I have now been out on it 6 or 7 times. The board itself is brilliant and hasn't let me down yet. The paddle works great and does the job. The pump works really well too and only takes max. 10 mins to pump up fully (only downside is the pump makes a squeaking noise every time I pump so will definitely need to sort that out). It came with the additional extras such as the repair kit and waterproof phone holder, but I have yet to use these so can't comment. I am around 5'8/5'11 and this board is a great size. The width is perfect for me too as I have average balance, however having a slightly wider board compared to others is handy to build my skills. A strap on the bag snapped on one of my journeys which did make the day a nightmare but after contacting the reseller they sent out a new bag within 2 days!! I was very surprised and pleased.
