I had an opportunity recently to do some paddle board excursions while on vacation. One board was an 11'4" in length but only only 31" wide. It didn't feel like it had the stability that the Balboa has. The other board was a 10'6" but was 33' wide. Not having the extra length made it feel a little sluggish and not as capable in a two to three foot swell.
I live in Houston. Most of my paddling has been in Galveston and Lake Conroe.
In Galveston Texas there are plenty of bays and estuaries to explore. Having the four deck loops already fixed into the board is a nice touch. Lashing the loops with bungee cord helps to tie down dry bags and water bottles for longer paddles. On the beach side of Galveston we get knee to thigh high swells on a bad day and waist to shoulder high swells on good days. The Balboa traverses the whitewash on the inside well getting you efficiently out past the break. Surfing this board has been a blast. The moderate rocker and squash tail make turning a breeze whether you are are making a pivot or a crossbow turn.
On Lake Conroe there tends to be a lot of boating activity. Because of this the water is never really "quite". The Balboa tracks well. The five inch thickness comes in really handy with the loss of buoyancy from the fresh water. It really is a great "All Around" board.
I bought the board in back in September and now cold weather is upon us. I will update on how how the Balboa fares in an a winter swell.
