Shopping for a SUP for my (inexperienced) girlfriend to use on lakes (not the bay, and no racing or surfing) and came across http://www.paiwenboards.com. Looks like a nice beginner/all-rounder package with decent reviews (http://www.paddling.net/standup/showReviews.html?boardID=620). It's also attractive and not some painted surfboard (matters to her), and looks like a stable enough planform for someone 6'2". I know a longer, more parallel rail line will help track the board better, but at the cost of storage and portability. She says she'll be taking our small dog(s) out with her (should be entertaining, though I'll be somewhere else, kiting).
Anyone have or know about these boards? Thanks in advance.
