Review after 5 uses in sea waters, north shore Long Island. Very portable, easy to store, handle, and carry. Kids have no problems using it. Rocks and sand can damage it, so one must be careful when taking it in/out. The soft portion of the stand-up surface can easily scratch, say if an edge of a paddle is pressed on it while standing up. Issues: very light, with very short fins, which makes it pretty unstable. Taller and/or heavier people (say over 6", over 180 lbs) may have difficulties balancing and standing up. Yet, it's great when used laying down, sitting on it, kneeling on it, or even used by two people in a 'kayak-fashion'. Planning to try to create custom-made larger plastic fins to see if the balance can be improved. If anyone knows of a larger fin that fits, let me know!
