How to Repair a Leaky Valve

If your valve is loose or leaking air, it is most likely misplaced or needs to be tightened. This is a common problem, but it is not cause for concern. It’s really simple to fix as part of your normal SUP maintenance routine; simply follow the procedures below:

Locate the valve tool in your SUP repair kit and take it out of your bag.
Using the valve tool, remove the valve dust cap and release the valve.
Fully detach and remove the valve.
Check sure the O ring is in place and that the pin’s spring is working.

Straightening your fins

Here’s what you should do if your integrated fins are bent.

This is not a flaw; in fact, integrated SUP fins are intended to be flexible. It enables them to be durable while still being easy to roll away with your board. They can lose shape while your SUP is in storage from time to time, so check them after extended durations in the bag. As needed, follow these simple steps:

Heat the fins with a hair dryer or hot water. This gives them the ability to bend.
Return the fins to their original place.
While cooling, use tape to keep the fins in place.
If you want to get back on the water quickly, use cold water to hasten the cooling process.
