I am new to owning my own paddle board and was looking for an all around adventure board, and the 12' adventure board nailed what I was looking for! I wanted something my wife and I could take turns on in the water, but also something I could take to use for fishing.
All the mounts and d-ring connection points really gives you endless options. Ive taken it out twice and have gotten a compliment on the color (teal) literally from everyone that has seen it!
Some people might complain that it takes some time to pump up and can be quite the workout, but that's all part of having an inflatable board that you can deflate and take literally anywhere. I've already purchased the Gili electric pump as well as the Gili speaker that attaches to the action mount. Cant wait for those to come in!
The 12 footer is a solid length in the water and really helps with stability. I was blown away with how solid the board is once it's inflated to the proper psi. I bought the full carbon paddle with it and man is that thing light, almost like there's nothing in your hands, it's great!
One of my favorite things that I would have never imagined liking is the bag that you store it in/carry it in! You might think that once you use the board once, the board wont fit the same in the bag and that it may be struggle to stuff in. That is not true. This bag has PLENTY of room to add your folded up board, and pump, and paddle, and a change of clothes, and every other accessory you can think of needing while paddle boarding and you'll still have room. For those who love pockets, there are pockets upon pockets!
I will be buying all my future boards and accessories from Gili as long as they are as great as this one! Thanks for making such a great board and allowing me to have a great experience!
