This size is really good for my wife and kids. It’s stable enough and paddles smooth and easy.
Just snagged a 9'0" Smoothie, which I'm stoked on. Been SUP surfing for about 10 years in Malibu, and have been dying to upgrade my board to something lighter + faster. This board is super fun in the lineup ... and also perfect for mellow paddles around the harbor, or in the ocean when it's glassy. Very happy.
