Great review. It’s nice to see the brand embracing plastic-free packaging. This really ought to be a deal-breaker for brands not following this path. By this I mean promoting / cashing in on encouraging people to paddle local waterways then wrapping products in plastic that then finds its way into the very same eco-system they want people to see. Anyway, great review.

Love these boards I have the 10”6 the only thing that lets them down is the paddle blade shape. But love the lack of plastic package and shark trust support
