Inflatable paddleboards are pretty hard wearing, and shouldn't require much maintenance. However, to ensure your iSUP is in good working order when you do use it, it's well worth thinking how best to store it, especially over longer periods of time.
Whether you’re living somewhere hot or somewhere cold, storing your iSUP badly can effect not only it’s overall condition but also its performance on the water. In this video we go over the basics of iSUP storage to make sure your iSUP is in top condition when it comes to getting back out on the water again. Whether you’re storing it for a few weeks, months or longer, it’s well worth thinking about. If you don’t you’ll regret it!
Other things worth considering;
– Rodents (Mice & Rats) We haven’t experienced any storage problems re;rodents. But if you suspect any rodents nearby take the necessary intervention and keep a close eye on your SUP! You may find your wetsuits are more likely to get a nibble first!
– Birds and more importantly their poo! If you get bird poo on your iSUP try and clean it off asap. The main PVC board material washes quite well, but the EVA deck pad can stain easily and be much harder to clean.
