What we like:
Usually, we wouldn't dream of paddling around a board that is so short but it's actually very stable to paddle. The stability of this board is a combination of the board volume, width, round nose and wide thumb tail. We have had plenty of beginner paddlers try the Space Pickle and have no problem balancing and feeling confident.
One of the biggest pros of the Space Pickle is how easy it is to carry and move around. Even for smaller and lighter paddlers, it's easy to pick up, carry and put on the roof of your car. The other bonus of it's size is that if it's windy - the Space Pickle doesn't blow around when carrying it like most other standups do!
What we don't like:
Because this board is so short and wide, the tracking isn't great. That means that you can only take 2-4 paddles on each side before swapping. It's really not a big issue but we try to be as honest as possible in our reviews. If you are looking for a board that will excel in racing or touring - you should consider something like the Slingshot Crossbreed
Why you want the Slingshot Space Pickle:
Because you want an amazingly versatile paddleboard that is easy to carry, easy to ride and built for performance in the waves as well as family fun! The beautiful wood veneer caps off a very well designed board. Nice work Slingshot!
