How to Care for an iSUP

Inflatable SUPs are designed to handle a lot of abuse and honestly don’t require much as far as special care goes. First of all, you should avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. When your board’s not in use, simply place it in a shady area and out of the sun’s intense rays.

Next, it’s essential to rinse your iSUP, paddle, and other paddling accessories off with fresh water after each use. Salt water will absolutely destroy your gear, so give everything a thorough rinse after you’re done. If you find that your board is looking dirty, some mild soap and water will do the trick. Also, an occasional wipe down with some 303 UV Protectant Spray will prevent damage from harmful UV rays and keep your board looking newer, longer – just remember not to spray your board’s traction pad.

Last but not least, make sure that your board is nice and dry before rolling it up placing it in the carry bag. Not giving your gear time to properly dry before storage will result in mold – something you definitely want to avoid.

In the event that your iSUP needs to be repaired at some point in the future, it’s good to know that Fbsport iSUPs these days come with a repair kit. Most repairs are simple do-it-yourself fixes that can be easily completed in just a few minutes, and there are plenty of easy-to-follow tutorials online that will walk you through the repair process.

Hi. I love the boards – I have 2! I’m in Ohio and am wondering if I can store the boards in their backpacks in the garage, or if I need to bring them inside for the winter? It gets below freezing here so if you can please advise whether these will be ok in the garage I’d appreciate it. Thanks!
