Right time right place right board. Exactly as expected.
We have now had the board for three seasons. Have loved the board.
No failings, no damage, no problems. All At the price of a REALLY inexpensive board. The value of the board alone, was great.
Keep in mind, the board has earned the 5 star rating, above and beyond the complaints below.
Unfortunately. The pump, has been problematic from the beginning. The gauge, when threaded 100% sits at 45 degrees, 1/2 covering one of the handles. This half covered handle, causes blisters when used.
The flutter valve on the pump, has failed. Note to all this valve can be replaced with a "red paddle co valve" Keeping it in operation.
The Pump seats very poorly onto the board, I found, un-threading right to the point of disconnect, prevented an air leak, and making the pump and board usable.
I would also hazard to claim, a huge number of users, will never pump this board to 15 psi, with the included pump.
The paddle, exactly what would be expected given the price point of the board.
Make mo mistake, it is a budget package, but with a great board.
Not sure if I wrote a review before. But as the seasons pass, I am more impressed with the board each year.
Hate the pump more each year,
and look forward to buying a better paddle.
