Why get an electric pump for inflatable paddle boards?

You’ve recently bought one of the best inflatable sup boards or a budget inflatable board for beginners and joined the ever growing community of stand up paddle boarders. Congratulations! You’re enjoying the calm and serenity this activity provides. You’re making the most of the outdoors – especially during lockdown – to enjoy what the UK has to offer on your doorstep. Invaluable stress-free time is particularly important these days. So, you pack your paddle boards in the car, along with all the safety gear and wetsuits, and drive to your favourite spot to enjoy a few hours of peace.

But, before the fun can begin, the dreaded time to manually inflate the boards arrives. A few minutes feel like hours when your manual pump only indicates 3psi and your arms already feel like rocks. You panic, the gauge is broken, the board feels hard, it is ready! It is NOT! You still have to pump more to reach the 15psi, 17psi or 20psi (sometimes even more) recommended by your board manufacturer. That’s it, give up, you need an electric pump!

Which electric pump for inflatable paddle boards to choose?

There areĀ  a few things to consider when purchasing an electric pump for your inflatable paddle boards.

The most important factor is the psi. Please refer to your paddle board(s) and check the required psi. If you have multiple boards, check the one requiring the highest pressure and choose a pump that can reach that pressure.

Programmable electric pumps

Another important feature for an electric pump is its programmability. It is a nice feature where you select the required psi, press start and let the pump do its work until it reaches the required pressure, then stop. No need to keep an eye on the pump to make sure it doesn’t inflate your board enough, and, most importantly, not too much. Most of the best electric pumps for inflatable paddle boards are programmable.

Dual stage electric pumps

If you have a good manual pump, it probably has a dual stage system. It allows a larger volume of air to inflate the board when your start inflating the board and the pressure is low. When the pressure gets high and it becomes harder to pump, you would normally switch to a lower air output making it easier for you to inflate in the second phase. Dual stage electric pumps have that exact same feature.

Cooling system

Many electric pumps tend to overheat when used for a prolonged amount of time. The best electric pumps will have a cooling system allowing to inflate up to 3 inflatable paddle boards in a row without overheating. It is not much of an issue if you only inflate one board.

Deflating option

Although not as hard as the inflation part, the deflation can sometimes feel like a burden especially after a long session. Some electric pumps have a deflation mode basically sucking the air out of your paddle boards. It’s a faster process than pushing the air out manually by rolling your board.
