  • What is a stand-up paddle board?
    A stand up paddle board (or SUP) is basically an oversized surfboard that you stand on. A paddle is used to propel the board through the water. An inflatable stand-up paddle board (or iSUP) is much lighter than a traditional board, and packs down into a backpack when deflated.
  • What does SUP stand for?
    SUP stands for “stand up paddle boarding”, or “stand up paddle board”.
  • How do I deflate the paddle board?
    Open the valve cover, press slightly on the pushpin inside the valve with your fingertip to release some air pressure, then press completely and turn the pushpin in either direction, locking it in the open position. Start rolling the board from the rear. Don't forget to remove large fin. Use optional rubber bungee cord to wrap around the board to keep it from unrolling.
  • Do I need waves in order to paddle board?
    Absolutely not! The majority of SUP paddle boarders don’t surf—they paddle around on flat water.
  • What should I wear for stand-up paddle boarding?
    When the weather is nice, a bathing suit or board shorts are optimal. We also recommend a rash guard and wide-brimmed hat for sun protection if you’re planning to be out on the water for an extended period. When the temperature gets cooler, keep warm with a wetsuit or dry suit.
  • I think my board has a leak… how do I find it?
    Leaks are not that common as most inflatable SUPs are built tough. However, if you think you might have a tiny leak there is an easy trick to figure out where it is. With your board fully inflated, pour some soapy water over it and spread the suds with a rag. Watch for tiny bubbles, that’s where your leak will be.
  • Why is air escaping from the valve as soon as the valve adaptor is disconnected?
    Make sure that the pushpin inside the valve is locked in the upper position before you start pumping air into the board. When the valve pushpin is in the upper position, it means that the valve is locked, and no air will escape when the valve adaptor is disengaged.
  • How do I patch my SUP board?
    Once you’ve found your leak you can now patch it. Your board will come with a repair kit that includes a small PVC patch and some waterproof glue. Make sure your board is completely dry, then cut a piece from the PVC patch and glue it on. Let it sit for awhile, your glue bottle will tell you how long it needs to dry, but we recommend 24 hours at least. Then you’re good to go into the water.
