How to deflate a paddle board ?
It’s very fast and easy to deflate an inflatable stand up paddle board. Indeed an inflatable sup works the same way as an air mattress where the air leaks out through a valve.
Before starting to deflate your inflatable paddle board make sure that it is dry and that you are in an area away from water. The last thing you want is for any water to go into your paddle board as drying it out then would be very difficult.
To deflate your inflatable sup board, push the valve and turn it to the ‘open’ positionand the air will start to go out. You can speed up the process by rolling the paddleboard from the other end. Rolling your inflatable paddle board like a tightly packed sleeping bag will force the air out within one minute. And that it ! your inflatable sup is deflated and rolled up ready to go in its backpack!
