I asked for this for a Christmas gift and was excited when I received it. My board has started to crack in the middle after less than a year's use (and I weigh under 200 lbs). When I called Simply Fit Board...they claim they have not heard of this issue in the past. After reading some of these reviews, that surely is NOT true. The company will not even allow a discount on a new board purchase. Sad, sad company!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
