    Extremely happy from start to paddle...!!!

    Having had two big old plastic paddleboards from one of the big "box stores" at the family vacation home, we got a taste of paddle boarding and were looking to make the next step. While we knew that we were in the market for something lighter and more maneuverable, we also knew that we'd still need something that could hold up to multiple people of different abilities (and take a little abuse). And all of this without breaking the bank on something. One day we might be able to justify what you can pay for some premium models, but we weren't quite there yet. What we found was that trying to find something that meets all of the above criteria is nearly impossible. There seems to be a fairly large gap between a starter paddle board and a premium model that not many companies seem to be recognizing. In other words- not many options between a couple hundred dollar plastic board and a really nice board well over thousand dollars or more. And we needed two of them!! So fortunately, we found Paddleboard Direct and the Cruiser model. Glenn, as many others have mentioned here, is readily available and very helpful. He took the time to understand what we were looking for as described above and told us the Cruiser was exactly what we needed. And he was right!! Both boards arrived well wrapped and protected and shipper communication was great. We got them out on the water the very next day, and besides the fact that they were so light you can lift one over your head by yourself (compared to our old plastic boards that weighed more than a tank), they were supper easy to use and provided a new experience that we had hoped for purchasing these! They handle great, are very stable, and the adjustable fin that we are playing with still is allowing for some preferences for steering and stability from one person to the next. Needles to say, we are thrilled with the purchase and very happy. We also know where to go for the next time we decide to add to our fleet of SUP’s… Thank you Glenn and Paddleboard Direct!

    Cruiser Balance Dura Maxx

    This is a wonderful board, and I highly recommend it. I have a great inflatable board I’ve used for almost a year, which was worked well for me. That said, once I tried a friends hard board, I was hooked. It cuts through the water and waves better with a lot less drag. This board is extremely stable and it’s gorgeous!!! Also the customer service with Paddleboard Direct is the best! This board came packed incredibly well with absolutely no damage. I highly recommend this company as well.

    Great paddleboard at a reasonable price

    We love our new paddleboards - they are used in a calm, spring fed lake in the Berkshires. They are very sturdy for this type of water. We appreciate that they are lightweight and easy to put in and out of the water.

    Very. Satisfied with the whole experience. Pre purchase via phone all my ?’s were answered. The shipping process was excellent with no delivery problems. I am loving both the paddle boards!

    Love these boards!

    I haven't fallen off yet! Taken them to a lake in Northern California and Southern Oregon. Getting better at paddling, balance, and working with the wind when needed. It's surprising how far I travel on these - take a break on the board in the middle of the lake. Customer service and delivery from Paddleboard Direct were super easy and helpful when determining which boards to order as a beginner - never done this before.
