This portable, high-pressure air pump for inflatables is specifically designed to inflate stand up paddle boards. It has the ability to inflate up to 15 PSI, but most inflatable SUPs only take about 10-11 PSI. The pressure gauge is integrated into the pump. It is attached right near the handle and then you attach the hose onto the other side of the pressure gauge. As you inflate the board, the gauge will begin to register at 10 PSI. The end of the hose has a turn to lock insertion point that secures the pump to the inflatable stand up paddle board.
At only a little over 2 lbs, it is easy to transport. This air pump for inflatable SUPs can fit in your inflatable backpack and your waterproof dry bag backpack, making it incredibly easy to transport. Many people will just wrap their deflated stand up paddle board around the pump and carry it all in one neat little package.
Because this air pump for inflatables is a hand pump, it can take significant effort to pump up an iSUP. Sometimes, pumping a blow up paddle board to 15psi can take about 500 pumps. This is like a workout before your workout! Because of this we have an electric paddle board pump that takes all the physical effort out of it. Although this iSUP epump takes about the same amount of time to fully inflate an inflatable paddle board, it takes none of the effort. Simply plug it in to the cigarette lighter in your car, put the nozzle into the valve of the iSUP, and push start. Within 5-8 minutes you will have a fully inflated paddle board!
How to Use a Paddle Board Pump?
Our paddle board pump is very easy to use. Start by unscrewing the top part of the valve on your inflatable stand up paddle board. Ensure that the pressure point of the valve is raised so that the board does not deflate after you stop pumping it. Then put the end of the hose into the valve and turn it so that it is screwed into the board. Once the nozzle is in place you can start to pump. Be prepared to do about 500 pumps to get the board fully deflated depending on how hard you pump. It is a bit of a workout to get the inflatable board fully blown up. We recommend to blow up the board to at least 12 psi but you should be able to use it at about 10psi.
Are Inflatable SUPs hard to inflate?
Inflatable stand up paddle boards are not that hard to inflate. If you are using a hand pump it can take a little bit of effort but almost anyone is able to do it. Although it can be a small workout before your actual workout, inflating the board is not over exerting. If you are worried about spending too much energy blowing up your iSUP, you can use our electric paddle board pump to make the whole process seamless. The electric iSUP pump allows you to simply plug in the pump to your car and paddle board and push start. Both paddle board pumps take about the same amount of time to fully inflate a paddle board but the electric pump requires no energy at all.
