I agree with the negatives on the pin potential, just have to say El Flaco- your cowbell was in rhythm with the guitar tracks-hilarious. o.k. time to go paddle

I was going to be vague but then I decided to do this other thing.

Just throwing this out there, but when I started kayaking almost 20 yrs ago, we used duckies for all the hard runs. Cascades, Bear Creek (PA), Real Mann's Creek, the Class V+ stuff it was far safer being on a ducky vs being in a Dancer, Excel, or Lazer.

I just wonder how many patches are in the repair kit? Nice add-on sales.

The real question is do SUP's feel the same way about inflatable boards that cost $1400?
I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

I'm with mike. It looks like a death trap to me. It looks like something that would turn a routine pin into a very bad thing.

I havent been on the Uli (SUP inflatable board), but their designs look pretty good. I'd expect that they would be a hair slower in the water. I just can't justify spending $1400 to $1600 on a glass board for the river. Uli boards are the same price. Shit, I need to at least try SUP on the river. Get a diffrent view from being Face Level on the RMR or half-cocked on the raft.

Flaco is full of shit... he already ordered one of these things. But he found out that paddling it is like the old moped joke = it's fun till your friends find out.
