Great beginner water toy
The thing that is great about the Stimmel is that just about any skill level can have fun on it. On our last family boat trip we had 5-35 year olds on it and it was the favorite water toy of the trip. Surprisingly it was more popular than the tubes. My experience is that kids that don t get out on the water much lack confidence trying something like skies so they resort to knee boards or tubes. This is where the Stimmel comes into play. Beginners can use it like a knee board and when they feel more confident they can try standing. The hook for the rope and the handles make it super easy to get from the stomach to the knees. 4 stars because I noticed it just slightly flexible when I was standing on it (I am a pretty big guy though so I don t think this is a problem with the kids). It would also be nice if the fins were retractable instead of having to use a tool to take them off. I would recommend getting the tow rope, that works really great with the hook on the stimmel by making it easier to grab the Handel while being pulled.
