SUP set up guide

 

Step One

Unpack and unroll your paddle board so that the deck and air valve faces upwards

Two Remove the valve cap and ensure the pin is in the closed (up) position.  To do this simply press and twist the pin to open and close the valve

 

Three Insert the pump hose into the air valve and twist clockwise.  The fittings on the hose should lock and remain in place when positioned properly.

Four placing the pump on a flat surface begin to pump up the board with steady even strokes. Continue until the pressure gauge on the top of your pump reads the required psi.  Most manufacturer require 15 psi 

Note : your board can appear inflated at a low psi but you need to inflate to the recommended level for performance.

 

Five Using a counterclockwise motion, twist the hose to remove from the air valve. a small burst of air is normal. The twist motion will close the valve to avoid further air escaping and you can reattach the valve cap with a clockwise twist.

Tip - continued airflow out of the valve can occur when the valve was not closed prior to inflation. Immediately close the valve and add air to replace any psi that was lost

Six Flipping the board upside down you can now slide the fins into the fittings on the base of the board as shown

Once your fin is completely in place use the clip provided to secure the fin by sliding it in to the hole. Make sure it is fully seated in place before use

Seven  Attach your safety leash to the D ring on the back of the board. To do this open the velcro on the leash side (not the side for your ankle) remove the small string loop and pass it through the D ring, doubling it back through itself and clinching down. Then secure the leash by closing the velcro around the loop.

Eight Assemble the paddle by connecting the pieces. Ensure the spring loaded pin pops into place to lock the paddle shaft

Adjust paddle height by opening the quick lock and sliding the inner portion the desired length. Lock paddle height in place by pressing the quick lock until it  snaps into its fitting
