I have paddled a few nice boats, and the Air 55 is definitely at the top of the list. It can surf easily and really well, lots of control over the boat and it responds to you every need.

After a year in a Dagger RPM, I wanted to switch to a boat with more play. The Air 55 is definitely that. Surfing is so easy- I can finally get on and stay on waves, and manuever easily as well. It is short but with a reasonably large volume, you can definitely get air, sometimes unintentionally! And I'm learning to cartwheel and bow stall and all the other tricks too. The only downside, as with all other short boats, any stretch of flatwater seems a lot longer than it used to, but the fun you have when you get to the play spot more than makes up for it!
