Video Transcript Inflation and Assembly Instructions. Unroll the stand up and paddle board and locate the inflation valve at the rear end. Remove the valve cap by twisting it to the left. Make sure the valve is in the closed position with the valve pin up.
Using an electric pump insert the proper valve nozzle in the valve and turn it clock wise until it locks securely.
Inflate until firm, then top it off with the included high pressure hand pump to achieve proper air pressure level of 15 PSI. Check the item has been properly inflated to 15 PSI by inserting the included anemometer in the valve and turning clockwise until it locks securely.
Three removable fins insure straight tracking and precise maneuvering. Insert each fin, sliding it into place and locking it with the included pins.
And now you are ready for adventure on your Airhead Na Pali stand up paddle board. read less

Video Transcript Hi, I’m Marissa Nieves, and today I’m going to be doing something I’ve been wanting to do for ages, learn how to ride a stand-up paddle board. It looks like great fun and excellent reasons too. Michael from Paddle Trainer will be my instructor, and I just can’t wait to see what he has in store for us.
Now with any lesson, we always go through the basics on the beach first.
You can see Marissa learning how to stand up, how to hold the paddle nice and straight, and how to stand with knees slightly bent.
Now, we’re going to be getting an all-over body workout today, with the upper body, core, bottom and thigh areas being targeted.
In the water now, you can see Marissa paddling with good technique. Then she does a basic turn paddling backwards and swapping the paddle to the other side.
As she paddles off, you can see how she bends her knees and uses deeper paddle strokes to steer away from the beach.
Once a student is confident with the basics I normally get them to move around on the board so it can be more easily controlled.
Here you can see Marissa moving her feet in a surf stance then turning by paddling backwards with the paddle.
And here you can see Marissa really testing her balance further by moving in the surf stance and performing a turn by thinking the tile, paddling forward with the paddle.
She then moves up the board adjusts her stance again and turns in the shallow water before the beach.
Oh yeah, and everyone gets wet at some stage.
Stand up paddling is such a great way to stay in shape. You can see Marissa smiling as her midsection gets a good workout. Let’s see what she has to say.
Well, as you can see we had a lot of fun out here today, and I got a really good workout as well. Honestly, it was my first time on a stand-up paddle board today. It was really easy. I’ve tried surfing before and it is definitely easy. It definitely is. Thanks to Michael at Paddle Trainer. I had a blast. And I’ll certainly be back. read less
