How do a I deflate 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(yellow button) clockwise to get it to lock in the down position. Once the isup valve stem is down, you can simply roll up the board from the nose end and force the air to run out of the valve. Roll it up like a sleeping bag. Once you've got all the air you can get out of the board through this method, 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 inflatable paddle board strap that came with your board to bundle up the board, and store.
Best Inflatable Paddle Board Storage Recommendation
Ideal storage is in a covered, temperature-controlled room. Sunlight and salt water are highly damaging to the boards life. 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. Cold weather will not shorten the lifetime of your board. You can store your board inflated or deflated.
