Your Paddle board is your cherished treasure, you want to live as long and beautiful life with your lovely board as possible.
Even though We have enough confidence that freein SUP are all extremely durable and rugged
They still require a bit of love and consideration from you. and the proper maintenance also can make your SUP experience smoother and therefore more enjoyable.
Here are a few things you should NOT DO if you want to extend that enjoyment.
Most paddlers will love to spend the day at a beach or lake on a sunny day.
It’s ok that using your board under the clear sun.
However, be careful that the longtime direct sunlight can decolor the board and damage the service life, the UV rays will fade the pretty colors on your board, Extreme heat and fluctuating temperatures can also take their toll, once you’re not using it best to deflate your board and store it someplace where it won’t be in direct sunlight.
It’s critical to always be aware of the area you’re in when you’re paddling, for you and your board's safety.
Paddling in extremely shallow water can lead to damage to the bottom of the board, Even make the fin break.
Try to get in and out of the water through the dock to avoid the shallows.
Once you notice you’re getting into the shallows, hop off your board and wade into shore to keep your board and fins in great shape over the long haul.
After you finish a paddleboarding, it’s important to clean your board in time.
So It’s great paddling habits to clean your board after you use it in muddy or salty waters. Because the abrasive elements like dirt, salt, and sand, can cause undue wear and tear to your SUP.
Especially when long-term storage is required, cleaning would keep the mildew and bacteria that make for unpleasant smells and gradually eat away at your board from your board.
We would recommend using an all-purpose cleaner or soup for cleaning your paddleboard.
This may seem obvious, but you’ll see many people doing it.
Even the surface of freein board was reinforced, they are still afraid of sharp objects.
DO Not Drag your board in and out of the water regardless of the terrain.
Even you may think it’s “smooth sand” or some “soft grass”, THERE COULD BE gravel, rocks, debris that may scratch or scuffed your board hidden in it.

It would be exciting when you receive your new board, however, there is always some necessary steps to put together your board and keep you safe.
But don't rush to take the pump out yet! make sure the valve stem is upwards before you staring inflation. If the valve stem is downwards, push it sightly until it pulls up in the waterproof position, ready to be inflated.
Please note most of freein hand pumps have two actions, your pump should be switched on double stroke action (It will pump in maximum volume) at the very beginning.
If it gets harder to pump. Unscrew the red stopper on the pump, it will switch to single stroke action, it´s much easier to reach full pressure with single stroke action.

I’m not really surprised if you haven’t heard of it yet. It has been taking the water sports world by storm since the late 2000's.
SUP，in a nutshell, is an acronym that stands for “stand up paddle boarding” and it is one of the fastest growing water sports. A combination of kayaking and surfing, this sport is fundamentally standing on a surfboard and using a paddle to propel yourself. Stand Up Paddle boards are longer, wider, and more buoyant than traditional surfboards, which enables you to comfortably balance on them.
This has been a sought-after sport for first-time participants.
Paddle boarding’s fan has the median age of 25-44. And it’s most popular among 28-years olds. Well, considering what it asks you to do, I’m not surprised.
While people use this for fitness, this is also an epic getaway from stress. Being one with nature and all that adventure drama where teens these days post on social media.
Paddling yourself on lakes, rivers, and other waterbodies can also be called paddle boarding. For sightseeing purposes, this is perfect. But this isn’t all it can do. If you really want an adventure of your life, you should go for surfing on ocean waves (where you need the best paddle boards). Paddling on river rapids is also one way of getting in touch with your adventurous side. On the other hand, if you want to be lazy like me – not always, but most of the time – use it for fishing!
You can look at this as a longer surfboard with awesome paddles. It’s different from surfing. Well, kind of. The difference is the length and size, and the most obvious one, it comes with paddles.
Instead of sitting down, waiting for the wave to come, you use your paddle to propel yourself into the ocean body.
Overall, I wouldn’t say that it’s much of a stretch from your regular surfboards, but they do have a difference. It doesn’t change the fact though that this is often called as “stand up paddle surfing.”
Paddleboarding has a hawaiian heritage and translates in hawaiian to Ku Hoe He’e Nalu; to stand, to paddle, to surf, a wave. It’s history dates back to the 1950’s when the beachboys (surf instructors) on Waikki Beach used to stand up and paddle out to the surf break using their regular surf boards and a one bladed paddle. They did this because the higher view point offered by the sup style provided better visibility of their group and incoming swells. Also, it allowed them to keep their wealthy customers cameras dry and take pictures of them surfing!! As surfing developed and fashions changed, the paddle was lost and only a few surfers in Waikki continued to stand on their board and use a paddle.
There are also stories about Charlie Force, a carpenter and builder from the UK who in 1953 designed and built a hollow wooden surfboard which he successfully rode in Newquay Bay. So there is evidence of SUP surfing in the UK some 50 years before it became popular in the UK.
Today, SUP is currently the fastest growing watersport in the world, SUPing can be enjoyed is flat oceans, surf zones, lakes, rivers, canals, inland waterways, and even in large swimming pools.
With the advent of inflatable stand-up paddleboards, the sport became even more popular and accessible - the SUP board now fits in a backpack.
Stand-up paddleboarding not only is an excellent workout and pastime, but it can also be a smart mean of transportation, allow you to carry small bags and objects onboard.
OK, Since there’s so many benefits of SUP, why not give it a try next summer!

Paddle boarding is a unique outdoor exercise for your physical health and mental health. Not only is it beneficial to our health and well-being, bur it’s fun to do with your family and friends.
Here are just a few of them.
Paddle boarding requires a lot of balance to stand up on the board. This means that you’ll be practicing both your core and leg strength to keep yourself balanced on the board. For good measure, better balance can help you balance your life and general and have better focus throughout the day.
Almost every muscle in the body is used at some point during paddleboarding. Because of the balance required, leg muscles will be hard at work attempting to stabilize your center of gravity, while the arms, back and shoulders are used to propel the paddleboard in the water. The core, back and abdominal muscles are constantly at work to maintain your balance.
There’s no doubt that everyone wants to lose weight fast, but the right answer isn’t a week-long dieting program or a weight loss pill. Instead, you should look to paddle boarding to help with your weight loss goals. Studies have shown that paddle boarding can help lower your body fat than skimpy diets or pills you can ingest. Plus, paddle boarding is generally a fun type of exercise to actively take part in. More extreme SUP sports like SUP surfing and SUP racing take burning calories to mathematical heights. On average, you can burn 350 calories in an hour, So if burning calories the fastest way possible is your goal, then SUP is great way to reach that goal.
Paddle boarding can Significantly reduce your risk of suffering from a stroke or heart attack, according to a new study. This is because paddle boarding is similar to cross-training, running, and aerobics, all which greatly help cardiovascular health and prevent a greater risk of relatable diseases.
Being out on the water is calming, and engaging with nature can have a positive effect on your mental health and attitude. In addition, getting some extra vitamin D from the sun is good for you!
Believe it not; paddling is an excellent stress reliever as it is an adrenaline rush! Taking the SUP out on the flat water for a serene and calming hour of stress-free “me time” is a great way to wind down and center yourself.Studies are also underway to prove the relationship between the brain and “blue-space”. Just as a walk in the woods can be sedating and calming, so can sea air or just being on any water source. It’s good for your well-being!
Away from the noise and the hustle and bustle of life’s stresses, add some yoga to the mix. You’ll be able to bring down stress levels further and burn up negative energy as you burn some fat.
Paddle boarding is a new platform (literally) to get on top of some fish. It provides a great opportunity for anglers to get to fishing spots that could potentially ground a boat or wreck a canoe. The silence that comes with Paddle boarding stealthy nature makes it a very effective fishing method.
Anglers also find standing on paddle boards more convenient compared to replicating the same on the unstable canoes and kayaks. For this reason, Fishing on Stand- up Paddle boards has become the new normal. In fact, manufacturers have modeled paddles that are wider with the fisherman that has to struggle with the catch in mind. Next time you grab your paddle board, think about grabbing your rod and reel as well.

Before you get out on the water, you want to make sure you have all the right equipment. Don’t let a good time get washed away because you didn’t have the right size paddleboard. When choosing a stand up paddle board, you want to choose a size that has enough volume based on your weight and experience level to keep you properly afloat.
The most important factor when it comes to shopping for a paddleboard is the size of the board compared to your height and weight.
If you’re of a smaller stature, and under 125-pounds (56 kg), your best bet is to purchase a smaller size paddleboard. Anything under 10’6 (3.2 m) will be easy to control and maneuver, but once you find your balance and become more familiar with your paddling technique, a larger board won’t be as complicated to manage. Smaller size paddleboards are still capable of sustaining a heavier rider but are primarily used for paddleboard surfing. Depending on your preference for surface texture, both fiberglass and foam paddleboards are reliable, and both offer quality longevity
If you choose Paddle board for your kids. The Kids’ SUP should also be the right size, typically in the 7-9 ft range. This way the board will be easy enough to transport in a car and small enough so your child can lug it to-and-from the shore.
For riders weighing 150-pounds (68 kg) or more, finding an all-around paddleboard that ranges from 10’6 (3.2 m) to 12’6 (3.8 m) is ideal for a smooth and comfortable ride. Most paddleboard shapes have a cross-width that ranges from 30-inches (76 cm) to 34-inches (86 cm), and a base width that is typically between 4-6 inches (10-15 cm).
The wider and thicker the board, the more stability you have on the water.
However, although these boards are smaller, there should be no sacrifice for ample stability.
Learning to paddleboard is relatively easy, but you still need the right amount of stability to get your bearings. A younger SUPer will appreciate a stable board, and it’s also a way to give their friends a ride.
The all-around paddleboard shape is great for yoga enthusiasts who are looking to jump into the sport of SUP, and weekend warriors who like to strap a cooler to the board and hit their favorite beach or lake hangout. Thickness is always a factor to look out for if you want a solid and stable ride.
