INFLATABLE BOARDS:

How much air should I pump into my Inflatable board, and how long does it take to inflate?

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 min.

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 inflating to deflating, simply push the pin and turn clockwise a 1/4 turn. The pin will lock itself in a down position and the air will come out freely. To switch from deflating to inflating, simply push the pin and turn a 1/4 counter-clockwise. The pin will lock itself in a up position and the air will not be able to come out unless you push the pin.

How should I clean and how should I store my Inflatable board?

We only recommend water and a mild soap. Heavy detergents and solvents can damage your board. It is best to clean and dry your board, take out the fins, and store in the shade. CLICK: Inflatable Maintenance Guide

 

If I puncture my Inflatable board, can I repair by myself?

Yes, you can use the supplied Inflatable repair kit and follow the instruction in the Starboard inflatable manual or CLICK HERE

 

HARD BOARDS:

Weight and volume of the boards?

You can find weight and volume of the boards at the bottom of the product pages: https://sup.star-board.com/products/

If I ding (put a hole in) my board, should I stop using it?

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.
