Inflatable paddle board usage advices
A few tips to correctly use the stand up inflatable paddle board. Rinse your SUP before putting it in storage. Whenever you use your SUP you’ll want to rinse it with freshwater afterwards. It’s good to get into the habit of rinsing off your board after each use because getting rid of dirt and grit can extend its lifespan. It also prevents you from having to clean your board before you head out next time. SUP is an outdoor sport so a certain amount of mud is expected, but with a good spray down after each time out you’ll keep your paddle board in action over the long-term. Pay special attention to the area around your valve to keep it clean and working smoothly.
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.
Less fatigue: As you build up your muscles, you will feel generally stronger. If your muscles are working properly, this means that simple tasks which may leave you feeling fatigued, are now easier for you to do. Add to that the advantage of being outdoors in fresh air, and you get an even bigger boost to your fatigue levels. The big advantage to paddle boarding is that you don’t even notice the increase, as it happens so gradually.

Another inflatable stand up paddle board advice: Stay out of the way: The ocean is huge, lakes are big and the rivers are wide. Yet we always seem to want to paddle on the same square inch of water! Paddle boards are big and they can hurt when they hit you. Be mindful of other water users and when you’re learning the art of SUP. Make sure you have plenty of room to practice standing, falling and paddling. Look after your board and paddle: Paddle boards for beginners are big. To make them manageable, manoeuvrable and strong they need to be built out of lightweight high tech materials making them expensive. Look after your board and paddle, they are fragile when thrown around on land. Your board will thank you!
