Detin de un an o placa pentru incepatori si am o experienta de circa 300 km pe apa. Aceasta placa este foarte bine echilibrata, permite incarcari destul de mari, este stabila si cu o alunecare buna pe apa. Datorita lungimii relativ mari isi pastreaza directia, deci introarcerile cu aceasta placa nu sunt la fel de facile ca in cazul unei placi scurte. Cu toate acestea, o consider o placa foarte manevrabila. In prima zi de utilizare am fost rugat de o persoana (care nu folosise niciodata o placa SUP) sa o testeze si nu a avut nicio problema cu stabilitatea si manevrabilitatea. Testarea a fost facuta pe apa curgatoare, fara curenti puternici si cu valuri mici (10-20 cm). Foarte probabil este la fel de stabila si in cazul unor valuri ceva mai mari, pe mare de exemplu. Dealtfel, alte opinii sunt favorabile utilizarii pe mare. Foarte probabil exista placi la fel de bune sau mai bune, la preturi comparabile, dar aceasta placa m-a cucerit din prima.
I bought this board as a beginner after one lesson on two hard boards (12'6" and 14'). I haven't paddled any other boards or had another lesson. My review is limited to my experience of about 60 paddles on the sea.
It is rated as intermediate but it is very forgiving and easy to learn on without any lessons. If you are a beginner and want a long board don't waste your money on a beginner's board.
It loses about 1.5psi every two weeks, so remember to top it up if you are keeping it inflated between paddles. I have paddled it as low as 13.5psi and it was fine. The recommended 17psi is better.
Deflating and taking it on a trip works well. It takes me about 17 minutes to unpack, inflate and organise my gear for a long paddle. This is a long board with a large volume, so it takes a bit longer than smaller boards to inflate. I looked into electric (DC) and battery powered pumps and decided it wasn't worth saving a few minutes and a bit of effort. The Itiwit manual pump is fine and just fits into the 20L Itiwit dry bag if you need to take it with you on the board (you need to remove the handle and plastic tube attached to it for it to fit).
I do not recommend buying this board online. My board has a few annoying discoloured patches where for whatever reason the assembly has resulted in adhesive or other solvent on the surface of the board causing these imperfections. It is cosmetic only, but present from when I received the board. I suggest buying in-store after carefully examing the board first to avoid this. After about 40 paddles I also noticed a few discoloured areas that seem likely to be excess adhesive reacting with UV light or sea water or both. These also only seem to be cosmetic, some are drops and some along joins. I always wash the board with freash water after every paddle.
Everything else about the board has been fine so far. The leash attachment point is perhaps a little too far forward for stepping back aggressively and maybe 31" wide is a bit too fat. Enjoy!
This ITIWIT X500 Touring board is my 5th isup. I own an 11' all-around isup, a 12'6" touring isup and 2 "budget" 14' race isups. This board has nearly the stability of my 12'6" x 30" board, with speed that actually may exceed my 14" x 28" boards. The fit and finish are incredible. It's a beautiful looking board. It is unbelievably smooth on the water. The pintail design reduces drag and facilitates the transfer of paddle input power to forward motion. It doesn't have that "lag" I experience with my other boards. The 17 psi inflation pressure provides a nice stiff deck. It has very little flex compared to my other isups (even when inflated to the same pressure). I carry a lot of gear on my board so I really appreciate the front bungee system. It has more bungee than most boards and the "wings" that wrap around from the sides are great for holding smaller gear in that would usually slide out. If I had to name one complaint, it would be the leash attachment loop location. I wish it was about 6" farther back so that the entire deck pad was available for step-back turns. If you plant your rear foot right against the leash attachment point and shift your weight back, it will lift the front enough for a decent turn but a little more room to step back would be nice. Let's face it though, it's not a race board. You're probably not going to be doing too many bouy turns while out touring. Overall, an incredible product that feels and performs like a much more expensive board. I cannot recommend it enough.
The ideal board to go exploring alone and with my dog. High quality product! It is light, easy to inflate and once folded can be easily stored in a cupboard.
i had a small leak to the 1st SUP. i bring back and received a well welcome and exchange the product easily. very good service and motivated people in Decathlon !

J'utilise ce produit en mer, lac et rivière. J'en suis très satisfait. Il est stable, rapide et solide. Le sol bémol est que l'on ne puisse pas laisser l'aileron quand il est hors de l'eau, cela oblige des manipulations pour enlever les affaires sanglées dessus.
Très bon produit qui permet de faire de belles randonnées avec une bonne qualité de glisse. Produit bien fini.
Nous utilisons ce padel avec toute la famille de 12 à 56 ans. Les enfants font des sorties sur les plans d'eau de la Corrèze avec les copains. Jusqu'à 4 avec deux pagaies! Si la stabilité n'est pas la plus optimale, la forme permet d'avoir une superbe glisse. Le sac à dos de rangement permet d'y glisser la pompe, 2 pagaies sans dépasser les 15 kg. Le pliage et le rangement se fait vraiment facilement sans avoir à s'y reprendre plusieurs fois ce qui est très pratique. Content de notre achat, nous l'avons emmené en avion au Sénégal pour l'utiliser dans les bolongs. Le padel est considéré comme un bagage ordinaire en avion au vu de ses dimensions. Le vendeur décathlon ne nous a pas trompé sur la marchandise!
Je vous remercie de votre super retour sur notre paddle de randonnée, contente que toute la famille et les copains de la famille aient pu en profiter!!
A très bientôt dans notre magasin!
