Do you have any tips for board maintenance?
After each use, be sure to rinse your board off with freshwater and let dry fully before storing. It is best to keep both inflatables and hard boards out of direct sunlight. Keep them in a shed or garage - any sort of covered storage - it doesn't need to be temperature controlled. It's the sun's UV rays that can shorten the lifetime of the board.
If your inflatable SUP gets dirty or scuffed up you can use mild soap and water or Mr. Clean Magic Erasers to clean it. The erasers work like a charm at removing scuff marks from your paddle or dirt. We have also had customers use dinghy conditioners on their boards, but it is not necessary.
All of our boards now have Gore Tex vent plugs, so they will automatically vent. Still, hard boards can be a bit more sensitive to increased temperatures, so it is very important to keep them out of direct sunlight. Always keep them shaded when out and not in use. It is a good idea to flip the board over so the black dek pad is on the ground so to keep the board's temperature down. You can clean off scuff marks by lightly sanding with high grit sandpaper or even rubbing wet sand over the mark.
