A PFD should be always be worn when in or around water.
INFLATION: Remove board from bag and unroll on a flat surface. Take note of how board is rolled. Assemble air pump by attaching hose Attach air hose to the valve located on rear end of board. Gently insert hose and turn clockwise until locked Place pump on a level surface and begin to pump while watching the red scale on PSI gauge (15 PSI max). Close valve lid when complete WARNING: DO NOT USE AN AIR COMPRESSOR. This will result in damage to the board and will void ALL warranties. DO NOT EXCEED 15 PSI. Inflatable SUP boards are not warranted against over-inflation.
FIN INSTALLATION: Turn the board so the backside is facing up. Slide metal plate into fin slot. Place the side of fin with metal rods into the fin slot on board. Align the fin hole with the metal plate. Insert screw through hole on the fin and the metal plate. Make sure it is screwed tightly in place.
ATTACH ANKLE LEASH: Attach the leash to the D-ring on the rear end of board. Strap opposite end of leash to your ankle. The leash must be attached to rider at all times.
PADDLE ASSEMBLY AND USE: Loosen the piece with central handle and slide other paddle pieces on both ends. Close central handle.
DEFLATION: Clean the board and all accessories. Make sure the board is completely dry and free of sand or gravel before rolling or storing Remove the fin. Unscrew the valve lid on front side of board. Gently push down on the central valve head Once the initial pressure has decreased, push down all the way and twist the valve clockwise to lock it. Allow the air to escape while you begin to roll up your board, starting at the front end and moving to the back. Use nylon strap to keep the board in rolled position Once rolled up completely, place board and accessories into Lake Day backpack WARNING: leaving your paddle board exposed to the hot sun can increase the pressure inside the board. Check the pressure and deflate it slightly to avoid over inflation or popping.
REPAIRING SMALL PUNCTURES: A repair kit is provided with PVC, adhesive glue, and a valve wrench. Cut a patch of PVC that will cover a 1-inch radius around the hole. Round the corners of the patch to avoid snagging or peeling Clean the surface of the board and the patch Apply an even, thin coat of the adhesive glue to both surfaces and roll the patch onto the board surface to prevent air trapping beneath the patch Apply pressure to the surface of the patch to ensure a solid bond Complete bonding will take a minimum of 24 hours. DO NOT pump air in the board during this time WARNING: Perform repairs in a well-ventilated area. Avoid inhaling toxic vapors. Avoid skin and eye contact with adhesive. Do not swallow adhesive or repair pieces. Keep all repair materials away from children
