I was really psyched to see an SUP show up in my "New Products" email. Great to see MD branching out. This looks like a good inflatable but, sadly, the price remains too inflated (to me) to recommend friends buy it here. I bought a Jimmy Styx Seeker (stupid name, I know) 10'6" board with pump, paddle, leash, and bag/backpack for $600 from West Marine...and absolutely love it. Sure, it's not an 11 footer, but after a day getting used to it (inflatables are thicker and thus less stable than solid boarda) I was rocking it out in choppy water. (I'm 6'1" 200 lbs and it fits me just fine.) I've since taken it out on the Hudson in lower Manhattan (don't fall in!), into the ocean, and down parts of the Delaware, along with many rides across various lakes. I highly, highly recommend it (and any SUP for that matter). Best part about an inflatable SUP is when you're done for the day you can roll it up and throw it in the trunk. Let me know if you have any questions.
