Jacky surfed it a lot and it still looks beautiful.
For 2 years this was the only production board on the market low enough in volume, width, and thickness, for children and women to surf safely. Everything else is too corky for their body weight to have proper control in surf.
If you want the wife or child to have a good time out there, this board is their ticket to happiness. Trust me. Most paddle around on battleships that will kill them someday.
