Your paddle board is your most precious treasure. You want to live as long and beautiful a life as possible with your beautiful board.
We are sure that all freein SUPs are extremely durable and robust.
They still need some love and pampering from you. Proper care can also help you use your SUP better and with more pleasure.
Here are a few things you should NOT do if you want to prolong this pleasure.
DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR BOARD TO SUNLIGHT FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME
Most paddlers love to spend the day on a sunny day at the beach or lake.
It's okay if you use your board under the clear sun.
However, be aware that many years of direct sunlight can discolor the board and affect its lifespan. The UV rays will fade the pretty colors on your board. Extreme heat and fluctuating temperatures can also take their toll when you're not using your board.
DO NOT PADDLE IN SHALLOW OR ROCKY WATERS
For the safety of you and your board, it is important that you are always aware of the environment you are in when paddling.
Paddling in extremely shallow water can cause damage to the underside of the board and even cause the fin to break.
Try to get in and out of the water through the jetty to avoid the shallows.
If you notice that you are near the shallows, you should leave your board and wade to the shore so that your board and fins remain in good condition for longer use.
DO NOT CLEAN YOUR BOARD AFTER PADDLING
After you're done paddling, it's important to clean your board in a timely manner.
So, a good paddling habit is to clean your board in muddy or salty water after use. This is because the abrasive elements such as dirt, salt and sand can lead to excessive wear and tear on your SUP.
Especially in the case of long-term storage, cleaning ensures that mold and bacteria are kept away, as they can cause unpleasant odors and gradually infect your plates.
We recommend using an all-purpose cleaner or soup for cleaning your paddle board.
DON'T DRAG YOUR BOARD
This may seem obvious, but you will see that many people do this.
Even if the surface of the freein board has been reinforced, they are still afraid of sharp objects.
Do not drag your board in and out of the water, no matter the terrain
Even if you think it's "smooth sand" or "soft grass," it could be hiding gravel, rocks, or debris that could scratch or wear out your board.
