How do I patch a hole in my inflatable sup ?
Our inflatable paddle board come all with a repair kit. You can repair small holes with the materials included in the repair kit. Please note that in order for the repair to be successful, the humidity level should be less than 60%, temperature between 65° F/77° F or 18°C/25° C. Avoid carrying out repairs of your inflatable sup in the rain or in direct sunlight. Perform all repairs in a well ventilated area and avoid inhaling glue vapors, touching or swallowing. And Keep all repair materials out of the reach of children.
Draw the shape of the patch exactly where it will be applied on your inflatable stand up paddle board, and cut a round patch at least 2” / 5 cm larger than the cut/damaged area. 2. Clean the damaged area and the corresponding side of the patch with an alcohol based grease remover and allow it to dry for 5 minutes.
Apply 3 thin layers of glue on both the patch and the damaged area, allowing for it to dry for 5 minutes between layers until the glue feels tacky.
When the third layer of glue is dry, apply the patch without pressing and adjust the positioning if required. Press the air bubbles which may have formed under the patch by smoothing the patch with a round object such as a spoon, starting in the center of the patch towards the outside, then clean the excess glue with a solvent.
Drying time: 12 hours.
