What Kind of Pump Do I Need for SUP?

August 18, 2022 3 min read

Whether you're looking for a high-pressure pump for your stand up paddleboard, a single-stage electric pump, or a kink-free hose, there are a few things you need to know about pumps. Ensure the pump you buy is designed to work with your board's specific specifications. Good workmanship is half the battle when it comes to ensuring the pump will perform well, and prevent material damage or leaking connections, which can occur quickly at higher pressures.

High-Pressure Pumps

One of the most important things to consider when purchasing a high-pressure pump for your SUP is which type of board you're inflating. Some paddleboards and kayaks require a higher pressure than others, and this is especially true for inflatable SUPs. The Outdoor Master 12v Shark has dual stages and a Frost Active Cooling System. It also inflates up to three paddleboards at once, and plugs into a 12v DC car inlet. It comes with a complete set of nozzles for high-pressure inflatables.

An automatic electric pump is a must-have if you want to use high-pressure boards. These pumps can be plugged into a car's battery and will inflate your SUP to a maximum of 20 PSI in eight to twelve minutes. Most pumps come with a cable to plug into a car lighter, but rechargeable batteries may be better. High-pressure pumps are also useful if you own several inflatable boards.

You can also buy an electric pump with a 12 month warranty. Most of the GO battery and ERS electric pump come with a warranty. A high-pressure SUP pump may also help to keep water in your kayak or stand up paddleboard. You can also use a SUP landing mat if you're concerned about safety. There's a NIXY landing mat that can help you land safely. This type of SUP pump will also give you a nice landing mat for your kayak or stand-up paddleboard.

Single-Stage Electric Pumps

Whether you need a single-stage or two-stage electric pump for your SUP, an electric pump is the way to go. Most electric paddle board pumps can be used in the car with a 12V battery or by connecting to the car's lighter socket. The 12V electric pump comes with multiple universal adaptors, which allows you to use it with a variety of valves. The 12V electric pump is less expensive than the rechargeable pumps.

In normal weather, an electric pump can easily inflate two SUPs without a break. In more severe conditions, it will probably need to stop after about 30 minutes. When choosing an electric pump, make sure to test it before the first use. It should feel hot around the hose and vents but not too hot to touch. This is an indication that the pump is working properly. Choosing an electric pump is an investment that you should not take lightly.

Fortunately, electric pumps are now available for both purposes. For SUPs, you can opt for a single-stage pump as it can be used to deflate and inflate both boards. The single-stage pump is also compact enough to fit in most SUP bags, and has an excellent build quality. It requires a 12V DC plug and is eco-friendly. There are a variety of features and prices that you can choose from when choosing an electric pump for your SUP.

Pumps With Kink-Free Hose

To inflate your SUP, choose a pump that comes with a kink-free hose. This type of pump is more convenient than others. The pump's four-foot hose can be secured on its handle and will not kink, unlike flimsy hoses. The hose also comes with a digital display that helps you gauge how much air you need to inflate your board. When you reach the desired air pressure, the pump automatically shuts off. The hose is also easy to carry and kink-free.

The iRocker pump for inflatable SUPs has a sleek design, weighs only 2.6 pounds, and comes with a carry case for convenience. It also includes all the necessary valve attachments, including an H3 valve adapter and eight-foot-six-inch inflation hose. The iRocker pump also has a PSI gauge to help you monitor pressure. It also features an auto shut-off feature, which is great if you plan on pumping more than one board.

Another thing to consider when choosing a pump for your SUP is how much pressure you need. Electric pumps are convenient but dangerous because the hoses can become kinked and cause damage. While they are an excellent investment, you must remember to keep a safe distance from the water while using them. If possible, always dry your board before pumping it. This way, you'll avoid any potential dangers of electricity and water.
