:cool:Seemed like a great 4 beer in idea when I bought. Fast forward a massive box comes in from ups and Im thinking hmmmm I didn't order anything? This box was like the size of the leg lamp on Christmas story. Opened it up like a little kid on Christmas and went oooh yea forgot about this! So I decided to pump it up of course to see how it is for the kiddos? Bad idea!! I almost fainted twice and all I could see are spots when fully pumped! Anyways we will see how this does on the water. Oh yea I did buy one other thing while there :D

We have had one for a couple of years now and we love it . I use my air head electric pump and it fills it in about 3 minutes . I hand pump another 30 pumps to make it rock solid .

That would be sweet for raft ups if it had cleats on top! No more need for fenders!

First off great pic of you and your son? Did you just screw on the hose from the hand pump it came with? To the other one?

Thanks and no . There is a fitting that comes with the air pump that is supper close and works fine . I asked Joe a couple of years ago about buying the exact end that comes with the hand pump and he told me the name of it . I forgot it as quickly as he told me . My only complaint is the deck faded 50 50 exactly where we fold it in half . We store it inside so it was not from sun . Were not picky so we don't care but for the money I wish it didn't do that .

That's where ours is . It's a pain in the ass to put back in the bag in my opinion . We only do that at the end of the season . We fold it in half and put it in our storage after each use .

I just deflated it and put it away, I folded it in half the long part of it like a taco and then rolled it like a sleeping bag . That part was not bad at all. It came with straps with pull handles or one that goes over your shoulder like a duffle bag .

Just like my inflatable paddle board it seems like a great idea.... til you have to pump it up.

I haven't looked into them too much but there are electric pumps you can get to inflate them.

It wasn't called a Boston valve was it?
