iSUP Set Up Instructions: A Step-by-Step Guide

Posted by Author David Lee

Setting up your inflatable stand-up paddleboard (iSUP) is a straightforward process. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get started.

What’s in the Package?

When you purchase an iSUP package, it typically includes:

  1. The rolled-up board
  2. Fin
  3. Paddle
  4. Pump
  5. Repair kit

Steps to Set Up Your iSUP

  1. Assemble the Pump
    Connect the gauge and hose to the pump securely.
  2. Inflate the Board
    Connect the hose to the valve on the board, ensuring the valve is in the up position to prevent air leakage.
  3. Pump the Board
    Begin pumping the board until the pressure reaches at least 5 PSI, then continue until your desired pressure (between 10-15 PSI) is reached.
Don’t worry about overinflating the board; it’s designed to handle high pressure.
  1. Straighten Out Misshapen Fins
    If the side fins are misshapen from being rolled up, they will straighten out over time. You can speed up this process by placing the board in the sun.
  2. Install the Center Fin
    Hook the inner hook first, then insert the pin through the hole to secure the fin.
  3. Assemble the Paddle
    Connect the three pieces of the paddle and adjust the height to your preference.
  4. Rinse and Clean
    After each use, rinse the board with water and clean the paddle with mild soap or Mr. Clean’s Magic Eraser for scuff marks.
  5. Use the Repair Kit (if needed)
    If the board isn’t holding any pressure, use the gray wrench from the repair kit to tighten the valve in a clockwise motion.
  6. Deflate the Board
    To deflate the board, unlock the valve cap, push down the spring, hold it for three seconds, then twist it to keep it locked in place.
  7. Store Properly
    During winter, you can store the board in an unheated garage or shed, as cold temperatures won’t damage it. is a source where the post iSUP Set Up Instructions: A Step-by-Step Guide appeared first.
