I've only taken this board out once, but it turned into a way more epic journey than planned and the board performed great! I took it on the Napa River and except for the fins hitting the bottom in really shallow spots (might look into getting shorter fins for future river trips), the board stayed s...

I loved this board from the first time I used it. Easy to transport and easy to inflate. It is as stable as my non-inflatable board. I have used it on the river and lakes. It performed well in both places. I have not been using the inflatable ridge in the middle because it makes it hard to sit/lay down. I haven't noticed any difference with it deflated.

I bought 2 of these 6 months ago. With about a dozen uses now one has an air leak on the center tube that is due to poor workmanship (it wasn't glued well). One inflation hose completely split, luckily I have 2. One of the air port caps came without a lanyard so it is now lost by my teenager.
The boards are nice, they are very firm when inflated to max air pressure and they handle well under most conditions. With my various issues, most notably the air leak I feel like I purchased 2 very expensive pool toys.

I'd been looking for a new SUP for a while and this Tahoe model had been one of the leading contenders. When I saw it on STP I was stoked. Then I had another email discount so I pulled the trigger. Awesome!

Appears very well made and durable. From what I've read, this board doesn't share the problems that many inflatable boards experience. Filling the hull chamber to the minimum pressure, 7.5#, makes it VERY firm and inflating the stringer chamber adds more stiffness. This is sufficient pressure for someone around 120#, but think it necessary to fill the hull to the max rating, 15 psi for my 180# weight to prevent the hull sagging a bit in the middle. As expected, with the provided pump filling is slow and reaching the higher pressure takes some effort. With the 2 deep fins the board tracks very well. The product literature says it's 30" wide, not 31 and max capacity is 220#.

This gorgeous inflatable is great for flat water touring. The 6 inch thickness makes it nice and stiff and the twin fins add to it's stability and tracking. It glides well for an inflatable. The center inflatable tube is slightly annoying, as it creates a raised tube down the center of the board (which my SUP dog gives a paws down). The travel bag is very nice. The included pump is satisfactory, but not the best that I've used.
