You're right, it was in my promotions box. They sent the cancellation email at 4:00 p.m. yesterday.

I actually received the one I ordered today. We also have the Body Glove Performer SUP from Costco that we ordered 3 years ago for almost twice the price.

First impressions:
  • The bag is kinda cheap. It has a rubber coating on the inside I can see flaking off in a few years. There's also minimal padding on the shoulder straps and only 1 thin strap inside to secure the SUP which I can see nobody ever using
  • The paddle is really weirdly shaped and is quite heavy. Not sure how well it will actually move water
  • The board itself seems pretty good quality. The seams appear to be well done and valve is easy to operate
  • The pump is on the cheap side, but is pretty easy to use. Time will tell how well it holds up.
  • The detachable middle fin has a locking mechanism that I can see getting really hard to use once it gets some sand in it
  • Serious off-gassing from this thing
  • The carry handle on the SUP isn't that comfortable and only has minimal padding. It's also not that well centered on the board, so you'll probably end up carrying this thing on an angle
  • I think my board has a patch on it from the factory next to where the detachable fin goes? Yeesh.
  • I found a mystery washer on the floor after moving things around. For the life of me can't figure out where it goes. I think it might be a replacement for the washer on the air plug on the SUP, but it's harder and made from a different material. No mention of this in the manual.

I'm kinda pleasantly surprised at the quality of the board for the price. The accessories, we'll see. Doing a leak test overnight to see if it holds pressure.

At its widest, it's about 31.5". Pretty similar to the Body Glove SUP so it should be stable. Of course we'll need to put it on water to really test its stability.

The Body Glove seems more rigid, and doesn't fold up as small so I'm guessing it uses thicker materials. But that isn't really a surprise given the price.

So far so good on the air test. No noticeable leakage.

enjoy returning this when the seam tears knowing it's going into the landfill.

Hey man, we could say the same about that cheap inflatable kayak you bought on Amazon. Just 'cause it's cheap doesn't mean it won't last a while.

We got two inflatable kayak as about 5 years ago and they are still fine. I suggest you read or research about "Price".

Not because it is cheap means it's bad quality. Landfill is another issue but I guess we are here to get the best bang for our bucks

It is.... Every morning this week it's shown as 1 for Kingston, and then corrects itself with 0 an hour or two later.

I think it's phantom stock that their ICS merges into the website, that gets manually corrected each time.
