The recommended pressure for Deluxe board is 15 – 18 PSI for the outer chamber and 10 PSI for the inner chamber. For the Zen board is 15 – 18 PSI. Any higher you risk over inflating and damage. Depending on the size of your board it can take anywhere from 5-8 minutes.
When detaching the pump from the Inflatable board, the air starts to release from the valve. How do I stop this from happening?
There is a little spring pin inside that locks itself in two positions:
Deflating position (air coming out freely) and inflating position (100% Airtight). To switch from deflating to inflating, simply push the pin and the pin will lock itself in a up position and the air will not be able to come out unless you push the pin down again.

Definitely. As soon as you notice you have a hole or crack thru the skin of your board you should exit the water immediately. The inner core of your board (EPS) even though is water resistance to a certain extent, it can absorb water after a long soak, which will increase the weight of your board. If you do happen to absorb water from a crack or ding, it is possible to drain it by leaving it in the sun for extended periods, but it will never get back to its original weight.
