This is such a useful size board. It offers that bit more for the exploring paddler than the all-round Ride series.
It has the forward speed of most other 12'6"'s but without loosing stability. It has a nice balance with the wide point being right by the handle, just where your feet should be.
The tracking is great, the large 9" FCS2 SUP Touring fin really holds the line but you only have to step back a touch to free up the nose and get the board turning quickly. When you do shift your weight back it stays stable due to the wider tail. Its more stable on the back end than the Ride series, and that is down to that wide tail and large fin.
Overall a quick, stable and responsive board. Good glide for ease of paddling on longer journeys but not so big its not fun to paddle.
Even at 11'3" it doesn't look big.
