Its way to cold to go out on the water, its still ice cube cold water around here, but I inflated it to test seams. Fat outta shape girl here got it inflated with the included pump in 12 minutes. Gauge on pump never moved but board was full and had no give to it.
No big deal for me, I've had gauges that are bad...have a box of good ones. Its Durable...a 78 pound English springer and a 58 pound English springer thought this was a new jump on item in the living room...it withstood super sharp claws of both dogs jumping on and off of it while I inflated it and glued the d rings to it. I since moved it to the garage for safer storage while the d rings glue cured. Does have nose and tail rings so I could put my leash on it. Paddle...well that's rather heavy so i cut a chunk of pool noodle and crammed that on the handle give it a lil floatability and easy to see for my eventual practice a zillion ways to fall off before I get the hang of this...again. Best feature, board is good for us fat people that love the water and may wanna take a friend, or maybe my 2 dogs. Or just stretch out and take a nap. Thank you for making a board that works for us tall people and us fat people. Might not be the market angle for isups, but its really great anyways. Can't wait to try it on water.
