- Electric pumps can be used to inflate the board up to 80-90%. However, the remaining pressure required should be achieved using the hand pump to avoid overinflation.
- Do not use air compressors as they could damage the board. This also voids the warranty of board.
- Before long trips, ensure that the board has been inflated and has maintained the pressure for a minimum of 24 hours.
There is a risk of serious injury or death from drowning. Paddle sports can be very dangerous and physically demanding. The user of this product acknowledges, understands, and assumes the risks involved in paddle sports. Observe the following safety standards and safe operating practices whenever using this product.
- ALWAYS WEAR A LEASH.
- Always wear an approved personal flotation device.
- Do not operate the board under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Wear a helmet when appropriate.
- Do not paddle alone.
- Children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
- Dress appropriately for weather and marine conditions; cold water and weather can result in hypothermia.
- Beware of oﬀshore winds and currents.
- Check weather forecasts and understand the weather conditions.
- Do not exceed your paddling ability; be aware of your limitations.
- Be aware of safe river water levels, tidal changes, currents, and obstacles in and above the water.
- Check your equipment prior to each use for signs of wear, leaks or failure.
- Always inform someone of your paddling expedition.
- Always carry identification.
- Do not paddle in flood conditions.
Warning: Boards may deflate over time (up to 4 PSI in 7 days), be sure to check that your board is fully inflated before paddling.
Q: How much air should I pump into my board, and how long does it take to inflate?
A: The recommended pressure is 15-18PSI, any higher you risk over inflating and damage. Depending on the size of your board it can take anywhere from 5-8 min.
Q: When detaching the pump from the board, the air starts to release from the valve. How do I stop this from happening?
A: The air is releasing as the valve spring pin has been left in the deflating position. Simply press the pin down to release so it pops up into the inflation position and stops air from releasing; continue to inflate the board until up to pressure.
Q: How far do I tighten the screws on the fins?
A: Do NOT over tighten the screws. Only tighten until the fins feel snug and secure in the box.
Q: If I puncture my board, can I repair it by myself?
A: Yes, you can use the supplied Inflatable repair kit.
