Bought the board to use while travelling, mainly inland with occasional coastal trips. Very impressed with the construction of the board, bag & fins, the finish on everything is pleasing to see.
Only paddled on flat water so far & the board planed better than expected, being only 9'3" long.
The challenge will be in the surf, my regular board being an Evoke, 8'6"L & 32" W, stable & easy to paddle. This Bondi, having rounded bottom & rails, is much more sensitive & will be a challenge in bumpy conditions.
I wonder when manufacturers will be able to make inflatibles with shaped bottoms & rails?
Otherwise, I've made an excellent choice.
