How do I delate and store an inflatable SUP?
Make sure the valve area is dry, so water doesn't get inside the board when you open the H3 valve on the board. Prepare yourself because air rushes out pretty quickly. Press down and then turn the valve stem clockwise to get it to lock in the down position. Once the valve stem is down, you can simply roll up the board from nose end and force the air to run out of the valve. Roll it up like a sleeping bag. Once you've got pretty much all the air you can get out of the board through this method, just push down and twist the valve stem to release it so it locks in the up position. Once it's in the up position, air will no longer be able to escape the board or enter the board (unless you attach the pump and force it in). Use the included strap to bundle up the board, and store.
Ideal storage is in a covered, temperature-controlled room with about 5 PSI of inflation in the board so it is fulling unrolled. Sunlight and salt water are highly damaging. Be sure to rinse your board with fresh water after each use and wait for it to fully dry before storing. While this is the best-case scenario, the following options will work out just fine. We understand a huge draw to an iSUP over a traditional SUP is storage. You can keep it rolled up during the off season. If you store your board rolled, we recommend setting it so that the bottom of the board is against the ground (not the sides). We highly recommend storing your iSUP indoors. While it does not to be in a temperature-regulated area, it is best to ensure the board is not frequently exposed to high temperatures. The cold weather will not shorten the lifetime of your board. You can store your board inflated or deflated.
