If you have ever suffered from an inflatable paddle board accident or you have purchased one for your child's birthday party, you are probably aware of the importance of having your board repaired immediately if it is damaged. Unfortunately, many people do not realize that such repairs may be easier than they think.
As we all know, inflatable paddle boards are made with a flexible material that allows them to be easily molded and shaped into virtually any shape possible. However, this also has a disadvantage as well. Yes, inflatable SUP can be easily repaired, most often by the original owner, but more often than not by a good repair shop, if it has been damaged by the user.
If you are a parent who is purchasing a new inflatable paddle board for your child, you should know that they can often be damaged by improper storage. When the inflatable board is not used as intended, it may become very hard and brittle in that it may start to break apart in the air when you use it for a few rides.
If the inflatable paddle board becomes brittle when it is stored improperly, you should take the time to inspect your storage space and make sure that it is large enough to safely store your paddle board without causing any damage. Also, you should always make sure that your inflatable board is kept away from any other inflatable equipment. If you allow your inflatable to remain near other inflatables the chances of the board breaking apart is even greater.
If you take all the proper precautions when storing your inflatable paddle board, it will be much less likely to suffer damage during its use. As a parent you must also be prepared to pay for an inflatable paddle board repair if your inflatable becomes broken.
In conclusion, if you are purchasing or renting an inflatable paddle board for your child's birthday party there is no reason why you should not have it properly inspected and properly maintained by a repair shop before your party begins. Remember, an inflatable paddle board should last you a lifetime and it should be taken care of properly when it is still in good condition.
Remember that if you buy or rent an inflatable paddle board from a major department store or manufacturer, you should never attempt to repair the inflatable paddle board on your own. It is just too dangerous.
A great rule of thumb is to never try to repair inflatable paddle boards on your own. Instead, contact a reputable repair shop that specializes in inflatable paddle boarding equipment and ask them what can be done to help your inflatable paddle board.
