YES, staying safe in/on water is the most important thing.
We know wearing a life vest/jacket can be cumbersome and reduce paddle stroke maneuverability, so 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.

Pumping your iSUP

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.
