This was the 2nd time I've had the All Star on the water and I started to get fairly comfortable on it. It isn't unstable at all, but the secondary stability kicks in further on edge than wider boards, so it takes some getting used to. On flat water it absolutely flies and the narrow beam is very apparent. It handles upwind and downwind very well, although I have yet to have it out in rough, windy conditions. Having not weighed the board yet, I can say that it feels light during the carry and while on the water.
I'm looking forward to many more miles on this board and think it's going to be a perfect board for the mixed conditions we get in the Bay Area. Once I get more time on the board, I'll put together a better review for anyone interested in it. 14' long, 25" wide, 238 liters
