This is the perfect board for learning how to paddle on flat to moderate water. The ULI Board is designed to surf and will do so given the rider's experience.
If you prefer to do some touring exploration on Jamaica Bay or a clam day on the ocean, this is the board for you!
This board is also a perfect fit for someone looking to do a little local traveling. It deflates and rolls up to fit in the trunk of your car for some weekend fun. I have paddled extensively up on the Hudson River and out at Montauk with hassel free ease! The board comes with a Werner paddle that breaks down for transport, given it's the right size for you.
