At first glance, the boards don't look all that bad. The wood veneer decking was not what I would have expected when I opened a thread titled Walmart SUP. However, I'd pay 500 extra to avoid the stigma of being someone who "rides a Poi Pounder." Still, who here isn't just a wee bit er...curious... to see how they work?
No offense to our Chinese trading partners, but I'm really trying to buy American this Christmas. At the risk of being labeled a boutique snob, I kind of like talking to shop owners about the shape and what they were aiming for when they were making the board. I doubt that Skippy in Isle 17 can give me anything useful on a board's volume or rocker.
By the way, did you ever see what they called their paddles?
