Pro Tip: One question that we get a lot with youth-oriented products is: "Can an adult get away with using it?" In most cases the answer is yes, but in the right context. This board is intended for use up to about 120 pounds. Its low volume will make its performance diminish quite a bit if you are over the weight limit. In certain settings, like river surfing, the lower volume of this board may actually be an advantage over other 9-9.5 foot designs when it comes to responsiveness on a wave. Beyond that, we'd recommend purchasing an adult-sized board with an appropriate weight limit for adults.
All NRS Inflatable SUP boards utilize a slide-fin system that is easy to operate. However, if the fin plates are rolled up in the folds of your paddleboard, they can become warped and it becomes very difficult to get your slide fins in.
