A few tips to correctly use the inflatable stand up paddle board. Even if your home doesn’t have much space for inflatable SUP storage, an iSUP can be packed into it’s roller backpack that fits just about anywhere from the trunk of your car to your closet shelf. It’s OK to store your SUP inflated. Many paddlers wonder; is it ok to leave an inflatable paddleboard inflated? OR, how long can I leave an inflatable SUP inflated? As long as it’s out of direct sunlight, you can leave your iSUP inflated indefinitely. There are a few points to remember. Resist the temptation to stack things or place heavy objects on it. Over time, storing heavy objects on your board could cause a divot or impact the rocker of your board. Also, if you’re storing your board inflated for the long-term, it’s best to release a few PSI just in case your storage area gets too warm. That helps to prevent any damage to the board from the air inside expanding beyond the desired PSI.
During the summer months on a warm body of water, most people choose to wear some combination of a swimsuit, board shorts, and a short- or long-sleeved rash guard for sun protection. For cool conditions where hypothermia is a concern, wear a wetsuit or dry suit. Typically sold separately, a leash tethers your inflatable SUP to you, keeping it close by if you fall off. Your inflatable SUP is a large flotation device, so being attached to it can be important for your safety. There are leashes designed specifically for surf, flat water and rivers, be sure to purchase the correct one for your intended use. Inflatable SUP is an outdoor activity and being protected from the sun’s harmful rays is important. Wear sunscreen, sunglasses (we recommend polarised lenses) and sun-protective clothing.
There are many benefits to paddle boarding, whether you’re looking to get fit and lose some weight in the process, or an experienced water sport enthusiast looking for a new challenge.
