I'd get one long before I'd consider the 370. I saw one at OR in person a few years ago, and I thought the quality was almost on par with my NRS Bandit II. It is not an Aire or Hyside, by any stretch, but a great deal at that price.
I actually own two Airhead iSUPs and I'm really happy with the quality.
Funny you said that. I just bought one of those^^ from a friend for a song and then resold it for $100.
July 4th weekend we took a fishing float and the guy I sold it to and his GF took it out with us. It was a helluva deal for $100 in practically new condition...I was actually kind of impressed with it once I saw it blown up.
None of the boats in the $300-$400 range are great, but this is probably the best I've personally seen. It would probably make it in a class III but you'd be pushing the limits. Definitely a better choice then the SE370 though in all respects.
