How do I deflate my iSUP?Updated a year ago


  1. Make sure that the valve area is dry.

  2. Unscrew the valve cap and push the valve stem down lightly. Air will rush out quickly at first, then slowly release.

  3. Once air release slows, push the valve stem down and turn it clockwise to keep the valve in the open position.

  4. Roll up the board from the opposite end of the valve so remaining air can escape. Once all the air has been released, push the valve stem up to close the valve and then close the cap.

  5. The side fins should be facing out to maintain their shape.

The wrench included in the repair kit should only be used to tighten leaking valves, which happens rarely. Never use it to deflate your board.
