OVERVIEW

ASSEMBLY

Unfold the board from the packaging
Choose a flat, clean surface to unfold board. Roll out the SUP board until it is lying flat with top side facing up.
Valve operation
Follow the instructions below for valve operation and correct inflation and deflation procedures.

  • The board’s inflation valve is located near the nose of the board. For inflation, ensure that the centre valve pin is in the “UP” position. If it is in the “DOWN” position, press the valve pin to “UP” position.
  • For deflation, press down on the valve pin (turning is not required) ensure that the centre valve pin is in the “DOWN” position.

Caution: Be careful of any sand or debris around the valve area when deflating as small particles could become airborne with sudden release of the air pressure.
Note: Always lock the valve cover over the valve stem when in use. This will prevent accidental air release and entrance of any particles into the air chambers.

Inflation

kogan KDINSUPS11A Inflatable Stand up Paddle fig6

  1. Unscrew the valve cap, ensure the valve pin to open the valve, Let the air flow naturally into the product. Press the valve pin so it in the “UP” position.
  2. Ensure the pump hose is connected to the “inflate” outlet on the pump.
  3. Connect the pump nozzle into the valve, with a half twist (clockwise)
  4. Open the tap on the pump and start pumping air into the board by sliding the pump piston up and down. Inflate until you reach the required pressure.
    o Minimum 12psi
    o Maximum 15psi
  5. After inflation, tighten the valve cap. Only the valve cap can ensure proper air tightness.

Fin installation
The two side fins are permanently attached to the product. Once the board is inflated, slide in the middle fin onto the base and insert the pin to lock it into position.

Inflation tips and precautions

  • DO NOT use an air compressor to inflate the board. Over inflation can cause damage to your board.
  • DO NOT over-inflate the board. A max pressure of 15 psi is adequate. The easiest gauge of a good working pressure is to have the chambers inflated to a firm pressure when you press on them.
  • After 2 or 3 days there may be a small decrease of pressure due to temperature change. if so, add a few pumps of air.
  • Before undertaking a long paddle, inflate the board for a full 24 hours to ensure the board is airtight. If you are seeing a consistent decrease in air pressure, refer to leak detection in the Troubleshoot section of this guide.
  • DO NOT pump to max. pressure and let the board sit out in the hot sun. If the board is going to be in a warm environment, slightly deflate the board and allow the heat from the sun to increase the internal pressure. When paddling, the colder temperature of the water may cause a slight loss in chamber pressure. It is a good idea to carry a pump with you so that you can add adjust air to the chambers if required.

Adjustable Paddle

  • The paddle comes in three pieces. To assemble the paddle, hold the button in while sliding the pieces together until they click into place. The top section of the paddle is adjustable.
    To find the ideal height for your paddle, start by building the paddle so it is 6 inches taller than your own height. From this point, adjust the top section up or down until the length is comfortable for you. A longer paddle is better suited for a smooth, easier paddling motion. A shorter paddle is good for performance or competition riding.

CLEANING & CARE

  • Before storing, hose off the board and let it dry completely to prevent mildew build-up.
  • Do not use harsh chemicals for cleaning. Most dirt can be removed with a mild soap and water.
  • You may store the board inflated or deflated. If you deflate the board, we recommend that you store it in the protective bag that came with the board.
  • If storing the board outdoors, raise it up off the ground and cover it with a tarp to prevent exposure to the sun.
  • Hanging the board is not recommended.
  • Do not store in extreme conditions (i.e., above 66℃ or below -23℃.
  • Store in a clean and dry place.
  • Do not roll up the board too tightly when storing it while deflated.
  • If fins become bent, place them in boiling water until softened and then use heat (e.g., hairdryer) to help bend them back into position.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Leak Detection

  • If the board is losing air pressure, not caused by colder temperatures, check the board for leaks, starting with the valves.
  • A leaking valve is rare, to locate a leak, we recommend mixing soap and water in a spray bottle, spray around the valve. If you see bubbles forming, check your valve seating and base and be sure the valve insert is screwed tight. If you continue to have problems, cease use immediately and contact help.Kogan.com for support.
  • Replacement of the whole valve can be done using a simple tool that comes with the replacement valve.
  • If the board is losing air and the valves are good, it probably has a small puncture. Small punctures can be repaired easily and permanently. Spray around the board until air bubbles become visible and mark the position of the leak. If you do not find air bubbles, inflate the board to maximum air pressure and try to listen to find the leak, if you can narrow the area down, return with a spray bottle to identify the source of the leak.

Repair Kit
Punctures less than 3mm in size can be repaired simply without a patch. Deflate your board, then clean and dry the area to be repaired. Apply a small drop of glue to cover the puncture and let it dry 12 hours.

• When using the glue, avoid contact with eyes and skin.
• Keep out of reach of children.

If your board needs repair, use the supplied patches in the repair kit and follow these steps:

  • Deflate the board completely, lay it flat and wait for it to dry.
  • Cut a patch that is 5cm larger than the tear/rip all the way around.
  • Use alcohol to clean the repair area.
  • Apply three coats of adhesive to the patch and the board. Wait 5 minutes in between each coat.
  • Place the patch over the tear/rip. The adhesive will react quickly, so make sure the positioning is precise/accurate. Use the roller to ensure the patch lays flat and even.
  • Wait 24 hours before re-inflating the board
