How to repair paddle board?

· Air leakage ·

1. Fill the inflatable plate to 7-10PSI, and spray soapy water on the area where air may leak. If air leaks, bubbles will be generated in the area.

2. Find the air leakage area, mark it, and deflate the paddle board thoroughly. Cover the perimeter to be patched with masking glue or tape to prevent the glue from spilling. (Before repairing, wipe the surface of the air leakage clean.)

3. Take out the PVC sheet in the repair cylinder, cut out a suitable shape, and apply glue (evenly).

4. Attach it to the place where the air leaks and press it.

5, let stand for 48 hours, when the glue is dry, tear off the tape.

· Glue opening ·

1. Fill the inflatable board to 7-10PSI, find the place where the glue is opened, and cover the periphery to be repaired with masking glue or adhesive tape to prevent the glue from rubbing to other places. (Similarly, for air leakage, wipe the surface of the glue opening place clean before repairing.)

2. Squeeze out the glue, apply it evenly along the place where the glue is opened, and then smooth it.

3. Let stand for 48 hours, and tear off the masking glue when the glue is completely dry. (similar to air leakage)

How to clean the paddle board?

1. After use, be sure to flush the paddle board. When you gallop for a day, the river sediment, water grass and other debris will be attached to the surface of the paddle, if not clean thoroughly that is packed, these debris will destroy the surface of the paddle texture.

2. If you like to soar in the sea, in addition to cleaning the surface of the paddle board, you also need to dry the paddle board. If the inflatable paddle board is stored without drying, the remaining sea water on the surface will damage the appearance of the paddle board over time.

Do not use any detergent containing chemicals (not even soap) when cleaning. Just sprinkle water with a hose and let it air dry.

Please remember: Do not expose to the sun.

Why not?

Direct sunlight causes natural thermal expansion. This can cause pressure at the seam of the inflation paddle, especially if the inflation paddle has been inflated to the maximum air pressure value. All in all, do not leave your paddle board in the hot sun when not in use. Otherwise, heavy sun exposure will spoil the appearance of the board.

How to store paddle board?

After using the paddle board, remember to remove all the accessories to avoid scratching the board when packing the paddle board. Then be sure to rinse it with clean water and dry the water to ensure that the paddle board is dry when folded and stored.

Although inflatable paddles are designed primarily to facilitate storage in a bag, people with storage space (for example, in a garage) usually leave their paddles in a partially inflated state. If you use the paddle board more frequently, don't want to deflate and inflate every time. It is recommended that you release a small amount of air to prevent air leakage due to high temperature in the storage place and thermal expansion damaging the side seal of the board.

Again, excessive heat will cause natural expansion, which will force the joints and may even cause the paddle to crack. Generally, extreme temperature fluctuations are not friendly to anything made by humans, let alone inflatable paddle boards. The ideal storage method and location is to clean, fold and store in a normal climate (between 5 ° and 45 °).

Overall, the maintenance of the inflatable paddle is very simple. Just follow the steps above and pay attention to protection when using sharp objects, then you can enjoy the fun of the paddle board.
