How2 videos by Red Paddle Co: Pumping
Inflating a board using the Red Paddle Co Titan pump, is not only easier, but also quicker than any other SUP pump.
First of all, remove the dust cap from the valve, making sure the centre pin is in the upper most position. Connect the pump hose to the pump handle, making sure not to cross the threads. Take the other end of the pump hose and insert it into the valve. you’ll find the first couple of times this is quite stiff, but it will become easier over time.
Now make sure the stopper is inserted into the pump handle, twisted to lock it into place. Now you can start pumping.
The first technique to use, is to keep your legs straight, and your arms to push down on the pump handle, you’ll get the most efficiency by doing long continuous pump strokes. When it gets too difficult, keep your arms straight, bend your legs and drop your body weight down onto the pump.
Eventually, this will become difficult, so remove the stopper from the back of the handle and resume pumping, you’ll now find it much easier to keep going. Start again by using your arms, keeping your legs straight, before keeping your arms straight and bending your legs. Drop all your body weight down onto the pump as it gets harder.
Once you’ve finished, remove the pump hose from the board and replace the dust cap. You’re good to go.
