I debated over getting a inflatable board for quite some time, however I decided to give the SHUBU a try, I could not be happier. This board is awesome! I have only tried it out on the ocean but so far so good. It handles great with all three fins attached, without the third removable fin it is a bit harder to maneuver. I am typically not a review writer but am a review reader thus the reason I am writing this! The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the pump that is included. I have a hard time getting it pumped up past 6 psi. It is a breeze pumping it up to about 5 and then after that it gets harder and a struggle to get it to 10 psi which is optimal for me. The bag that the board comes with is very sturdy and cleans up well, as I mentioned I take my board to the beach often and my gear gets sandy, it all cleans up nicely and washes/packs back up well.
