Is there a SUP user manual?2020-10-24T15:28:25+01:00

Yes, Aqua Marina has provided user manuals and documentation for their 2021 range. The information contained within these documents, including the safety advice can be applied to most types of SUPs.

When will I receive my order?2020-11-17T15:56:44+00:00

iSUP process and ship orders within 1-2 business days. Once shipped, delivery usually takes between 1-3 business days and you will receive an email with a tracking link. We do everything in our power to respect these delivery times however we cannot make any guarantees on behalf of our couriers. In cases where product availability is scarce like during the busy summer season, delivery can take between 7-10 business days. If you need a SUP board in time for a planned activity date, we suggest ordering as early as possible.

Do I need to wear a buoyancy aid?2020-10-13T10:45:14+01:00

YES, staying safe in when on water is the most important thing.

We understand wearing a life vest/jacket can be cumbersome and reduce paddle stroke maneuverability, that’s why we offer Restube. The Restube device uses a CO2 cartridge, it’s small, light and clips on like a belt around the hips. Unlike other flotation devices, you only inflate Restube if and when you need to! Add a Restube to your SUP package when choosing your new SUP board.

If you are new to stand up paddle boarding, fear not! There are lots of great resources online to get you out on the water in no time. Below are some beginner tips to help you get started.

Instructions & Assembly

We recommend that you read the documentation that comes with your iSUP package, go through and assemble the accompanying accessories so you know what all parts are named and what they are for.

Pumping your iSUP

Usually a SUP board needs to be inflated to no less that 15PSI. This can vary depending on the board you have, so make sure to read the instructions. Using an under inflated board on the water will impede your SUPing progress and could cause accidents. Try pumping your board at home first to learn about the hose, gauge, pump and how it connects to your SUP.
