How to roll up your inflatable stand up paddle board

  1. Open valve at the tail to exhaust air
  2. Start to roll or fold the board from the nose and force the air out through the valve at the tail
  3. Use “in” mode on the pump to quickly deflate the board by pumping/sucking the air out
  4. Be careful not to let sand or dust enter the board through the valve while getting the air out. Once the air is out and the board is completely flat, set the valve pin to the up position and put on the dust cover on
  5. Protect the fins – avoid rolling or folding the fins to prolong their lifespan
  6. Tighten strap – the tighter the board is rolled, the more room you have in your bag for other items, or the less space the bag will take up in the car, closet, garage or wherever you may be storing the board
