this is definitely my board!
I'm a newbie and I'm not the most fit so I was worried about being able to carry and set up my board by myself. This board is so light weight though, I was able to carry it inflated in high wind to put in 1/4 mile down the road where I found a better spot. I really think 17 lbs makes a huge difference vs other choices on the market and even at 15 psi its very firm and easy to balance (I'm able to pump it up more and more with each progressive trip but in the beginning 15 psi was all I could do). As far as performance, I've been on three different bodies of water so far and its a zippy little board that turns with ease so you can explore tight spaces. Its hard to track in the wind but that's not a realistic expectation of any all-rounder anyway. I'm having so much fun, its getting me outdoors and I'm so happy I can go where I want without anyone's help. I don't know if the bag is durable enough for the travel I have planned yet but time will tell and the warrantee is great - plus customer service has been great so far too (I had trouble with a paddle that was quickly and easily resolved). Just get this board and enjoy yourself without worry!
