I love this board. I bought it for my 7 year old boy to learn on while we spent a winter in Mexico. It was a little wide and short for him and the rough sides were hard on his arms so he was better off learning on the wave storm and then going to a real pu short board. I tried the Mason Ho twin few times and it was a fun little board but once I changed out the fins the board really came alive. It’s easy to catch waves with and is super fast and loose for a soft top. It’s a great travel board or beater board for a shallow beach break. I’m impressed with the quality and durability of these softech boards. It’s a great board for around $300.
