Living in Upper Michigan it will be a few months before I can test my Inflatable SUP in the water, so I can't really give it a rating yet. I'm confident though that I will be able to come back with a very good score. For now all I can do is inflate it and drool over the possibilities! I was impressed with how easy it was to inflate, and how sturdy it seems to be. I was also blown away by the customer service I've experienced. NEVER have I had such quick response to questions about the order itself, and later reassurance about inflating and the pressure gauge (which worked perfectly). These people are very accessible. So far..........so good!
