If you’re finding that your paddle does not stay locked in place, it’s a simple fix with no tools necessary. When the clamp is in the unlocked (open) position, simply turn it in the clockwise direction to tighten the connection. It might feel like it catches on the plastic, but it is designed to do this so it does not spin freely. Gently spin the plastic clamp one full revolution to start and you’ll see that the screw causes the clamp to pinch more tightly on the paddle, locking the handle in place.

How do I tighten the paddle adjustment?
Why isn’t my PSI gauge reading when I start pumping?
The pump will typically not show a pressure reading until approximately 5 PSI, although your board can look–and feel–full enough to stand on around 3 PSI. If you are pumping up the board and it looks inflated but is not reading a PSI value, just keep adding air! You cannot over inflate your board with the included manual hand pump so keep pumping and you will see that the gauge shows a reading as expected.
What PSI should my board be inflated to?
We recommend inflating your board to 12-15 PSI depending on rider height and weight as well as ambient temperature. On a hot sunny day, you may need slightly less air than on a colder day. If you stand on the board and the nose and tail are flat with the surface of the water, your board is properly inflated.
How do I deflate my board?
To deflate your board, simply press down on the valve stem and give it a gentle quarter turn in the clockwise direction; this will lock the stem in the open (down) position and you will hear air rushing out. Rolling or folding the board while the valve is open will help speed up the process. When you are done deflating, we recommend turning the valve stem in the opposite direction to close it (in the up position) so that it is ready for the next time you inflate. You do not need any extra tools or accessories to deflate your board.
Do the paddles float?
The paddles are designed to float for a short period but not indefinitely; if you become separated from your paddle on the water, retrieve it as soon as possible. If it becomes waterlogged, simply disassemble the paddle into two pieces to empty out any water it may have taken on while floating.
I know it’s called a SUP but I’d prefer to sit. Does that work on your boards?
Absolutely! The versatility of our boards enable paddlers to enjoy the water with many different riding styles. Whether you like to sit, stand, kneel, or anything in between, our cushioned EVA deck foam pads provide long lasting comfort. Plus, with our optional Comfort Cushion Seat and Convertible Kayak Paddle, you can convert your Alliance HD or Scout Series board to a kayak!
