2021 Byron is a great value
I have been surfing for 60 years and SUP flatwater for 20. Have done citizen races in flatwater on the Colorado River and coastal bays. After talking with Mark about it's usability in Baja ocean conditions, he gave a realistic assessment of the capabilities of the Byron. I got the Byron mainly for my wife as we both wanted to get away from the heavier SUPs that I have acquired over the years. Yesterday, we took it out to the SD bay and we were both blown away by it's stability and performance. I bought the Bondi for surfing a small break in mid Baja and used it when we toured together. I had to power up to keep up with her! Am now thinking maybe I need another Byron so I don't get beat on the bay. Neither of us fell though it had been a while since we had been on the water due to a recent shoulder replacement I had. Highly recommended !
