The SereneLife offers straightforward and affordable access to the glorious fun that is paddleboarding. That's hard to argue with, particularly since it seems to be on perm-a-sale. With a flat bottom, rounded nose and square tail, the SereneLife is a classic recreation board, best suited to flat water. The 10' board is on the small side for an all-around SUP, meaning it's less stable and is better suited to lighter-weight paddlers. Its a great option for families who aren't sure how much they'll use it and who aren't too precious with their gear. On the downside, it doesn't offer the highest levels of stability or glide performance, is made of lower quality plastic, and can be hard to move around since it lacks bow and stern handles. It comes with everything you need to get out on the water though, and, once you're out there, the details matter less.
If you hop off the thoughtfully designed, high-end and stable Isle Explorer and onto the SereneLife, you'll be disappointed. If you're not willing to spend more than this for your first SUP, you could be stoked.
