This board paddles great. The first time that I used it was on easy whitewater and thats where i got hooked. One of the most stable all around boards I have been on to date. This board is now my go to board for fitness, flat water, touring, and slow moving rivers. I recommend it for anyone who wants a board that paddles really nice and is super user friendly. Great construction and the Bamboo looks super nice.

Fast !!!!! I really dont like gyms and i prefer not to wear shoes but put me on a SUP and ill be there for days :) The Raven is a way better than any exercise machine to me. I can get on the water and take a mellow cruise or do a full on cardio work out. Either way SUP is great exercise and for me to exercise enough I have to do something i really enjoy.

This is the best all-around board I've been on. The glide this board has allows for tireless hours while touring around on a lake or for your local SUP race as well.
I also took this board on the Upper Colorado river stretch from Rancho to State Bridge. The stability was great and the wave piercing nose was rockered enough to handle punching though any wave trains.
The cargo straps up front allow for you to stash a drybag or a flexi cooler w/ your fav beverages to keep cold on the way down. Just keep the board pointed straight and it's a blast.
I'd recommend picking up a flexible center fin to run any rivers with, one like the FCS 8" Dolpin Soft Flex. That will keep you from repairing your fin box, which will happen on ANY board out there.
Hands down, best all-around board. Super clean wood veneer too!
