]Stand Up Paddleboards are used in harsh environments and should be looked after.
Paddle Board Care
Never transport or store your board outdoors in the bubble wrap included with your shipment – It can cook your board.
Always keep your board in a shaded area when not in use. At high temperatures the EPS foam core can become unstable which can lead to serious damage to your board.
When not in use never leave your deck pad exposed and facing the sun
If you must leave your board in direct sunlight for any amount of time a reflective bag is recommended.
A board bag is not designed to store or transport your board in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
KEEP THE BOARD OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT WHEN NOT IN USE
OVERHEATING YOUR PADDLE BOARD IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY!
Vent Plug Care
The vent plug included with your paddle board is for the purpose of regulating the pressure inside your board. Changes in temperature and elevation pressure can build and the valve will allow air to escape freely from the core.
The vent plug is maintenance free meaning once installed tightly it never needs to be adjusted or removed.
Check your vent plug periodically to see if it’s screwed on tightly and clear of sand or debris that could block the venting.
Keep your fins in good condition by removing and cleaning them after extended use. Always remember to secure all fins tightly to the board as loose fins can cause damage to the fin box and the foam core.
