Hi, another generic question for the group. (I am thinking of buying an Eclipse for use in a lake.

If it flips/rolls, how difficult is it to bring back up (the weight of the device including the mechanism must make it a different dynamic than a normal paddle board. And once upright - is there anything other than getting back on the board and taking off?

So there is one of a couple flip recovery videos; I just wish there were more regular usage videos. Not reviews on flat water, but for instance a passage where you encounter large boat wakes, headwinds, and carry cargo etc.

I flipped in the ocean while it was pretty choppy. I don't remember how difficult it was to turn back, but I was able to get it back and hop back on ( that was with a cooler strapped on ).
