Any can use this board!
I got this for my girlfriend because she loved the artwork on it. She is an experienced paddler so has no issues with balance. I, on the other hand, have no balance. I was stood up on this board within 10 minutes. I fell off once or twice but this board is SOLID. We have been out since with friend and they're steady as anything! I was really happy with how light it is too, you can feel the difference compared to other boards! We went on a paddling day trip too and were surprised at how much we could find under the bungees without the maneuverability being compromised.
