Has anyone had a paddle on a SERENITY?

Just wondered how a Serenity would fare as a flat / inland water paddle board. would imagine it's rather less stable but potentially quite fast. what's the verdict if anyone has tried?

One for wardog: what mast position would you use for sailing the 9'8" with a 5.8 wave sail? it's an Ezzy, so the center of power is quite forward compared to most wavesails.
