      The answers to most of your questions are there in the Specs tab. As to the weight it will carry, remember that all your body is not on the board and the body has its own buoyancy.

      Size is 24"x52"
      Weight. Not sure. Very light. ~5lbs It is constructed of a very durable foam

      Kathleen, the board is quite stiff, not very flexible at all.

    Comments about Carlson River Board:

    I just did a 28 hour adventure race and part of this race entailed riverboarding through class 1-3 rapids on the New River in WV.

    I was told Carlson was the best riverboard to get and it was! I saw others who had inflatable boards and some people were worried about their board deflating. This was something I didn't want to be concerned about while going through rapids.

    The grips are great to hold on to and the board is wide, but not so wide that you can't paddle with webbed gloves.

    Also, the board is large enough to get most of your body onto when going through rapids or in shallow areas where you would be worried about banging your knees on rocks.
