I chose this iSUP based on the thickness (6") and load capacity. Two people (~250 lbs) can easily fit in it without any sinking or deflating.
Used it in lakes only, not in the ocean. However, it was very stable during the wakes generated by boats and jetskis.
This does not come with a paddle though.
First thing I will say is make sure, if you do get an inflatable paddle board, that it's 6 inches thick. I've ridden some of the 4-inch Aqua Marina models and they definitely dip in the middle unless you're super light (< 125 pounds).
It is super long, thus very stable... it really takes some choppy waters and big waves to knock me off this thing, but this is only when you're out in the ocean. If you're just taking it in lakes and rivers (what I imagine most people will use it for) then it's not even an issue. You could probably do yoga on this thing. I regularly take it out on my lake and just lie out or meditate while sitting indian-style and don't have to worry about my balance at all. It can also very easily fit another person on it if you want (see picture below).
The board is very durable. Because it's inflatable, it's not a big deal if you accidentally drop it or bang into walls or corners, which happens a lot when you're toting around a 12 foot board and trying to maneuver it through doors or tight spots.
I would definitely recommend getting an electric pump for this thing if you're planning on transporting it a lot and are constantly deflating/inflating it, as trying to inflate it to 15 PSI (max pressure) with the normal hand-pump is exhausting and requires multiple breaks. Lighter individuals will have a very hard time getting the last 8 - 5 PSI. Still, the normal hand-pump is handy if you're hiking or won't be around an electric source by the time you're ready to inflate and use your board.
That said, you do not need to deflate the board after each use. I leave it inflated on my back porch for days to weeks at a time and only when there's major weather changes will I need to add some air back in, but that's rare (I also live in Florida so major weather changes aren't too frequent either). Deflating is super fast... just push the button down and about 10 seconds later you're set to roll it up.
Paddle is kind of cheap and basically only has 2 lengths to choose from (extender bar adds about 1 extra foot). Even with the extender bar it still feels just slightly too short, still, it's not a deal breaker and works just fine until you think you're ready for a better one.
The fin is easily detachable and is made from a fairly pliable, high-quality plastic. You are inevitably going to bang into walls, roots or scrape the bottom of whatever water source you're in and this fin can take it without cracking.
Highly recommend this board!
