We bought this board in CA and brought it back home to CO to use on the lakes here. People mostly have blow up boards here and I so happy we didn’t go that route as it looks like a pain to inflate and deflate. Not only do we use this board in the traditional manner but kids also like to load up on it, float around and use it as a sort of diving board for flips and tricks. Also, our kids like to sit in tubes and attach the ankle strap from the board onto their ankle and we “tow” them around the lake while my husband or I paddle. Super fun! Sometimes I do yoga on the board too. So, yeah, the board is very versatile.
Great overall board. First time paddleboarder ... this board made a for a great experience; ease of use, great balance and glide on the water. And yes, you can easily do yoga on the board. Also had a great experience with customer service from the company (I ordered accessories). They were quick and responsive, ... I would definitely buy my next board from FOCUS.
I bought this board over a year ago and just started stand up surfing. Jacob was so incredibly helpful and explain what board he though would be best for me. He wants you to be happy with your purchase. This board has been perfect for me. It great in small and medium waves. It’s a bit harder to ride in big waves. It’s very stable and I can easily catch waves. I do find it a bit hard to turn quickly to get into a wave but that’s more because I still need to practice stepping back on the board. also the concave nose and smaller size boards specifically for surfing that Jacob has would probably turn more easily. Again this is because I am still learning but feeling close to getting a smaller version for surfing that Jacob has. It’s super light and so easy to carry. I got the carbon board and so glad I did. I can carry it for long hauls and get it up on my car racks. I have already been asked 4 times where did you get that board it looks like a great ride. I do have to be a bit careful not to ding it because of the carbon but that’s okay because the weight of the board is so important to me since I am not super strong. I am 5’9 and 120 pounds and this board is so stable for me. Also the light weight paddle is perfect. You won’t be disappointed if you purchase this board. Also great as a all around board not just for surfing. I paddle with my dog on the board and have paddled with a 12 year old girl sitting in front of me.
These are the best boards ever!!! I LOVE my boards. We first bought 3 Primes. Jacob taught us so much about which board would be best for us! Then 2 years later we bought another 3 of this version to have a choice of boards. He is honest, straight forward and fair about all our business dealings. I really appreciate everything about Focus Sup Boards! BUY ONE or TWO or THREE, like me (or 6 now)!
