How to Pack Your Inflatable Paddle Board in a Board Bag


If you love your inflatable paddle board and you want it to last a long time, you must take care of it. Below are a few tips on how to secure your SUP and accessories for transport, along with the most efficient way to pack everything in your travel bag!


So, you’re staring at your board and accessories and wondering, “how am I ever going to fit everything perfectly in that bag?” It’s actually quite simple. We'll show you how! 

You'll need : 


STEP 1: Deflate your paddle board

After removing your accessories, deflate your board. Remove the cap from the valve, press down on the valve pin to release the air, and then twist it slightly so it stays open. The air pressure will be strong, so keep your face away from the valve when doing this.

Step 2: Fold your paddle board 

Fold the board, like a tortilla, starting at the nose. When you reach the tail, press on the valve for the remaining air to escape.
