Storage of a SUP board

The most important thing is that the board is stored in appropriate conditions so it doesn’t get damaged. After investing in a good quality board, it’s worth the effort to find a place that will protect it from damage.

It can get damaged by the following things:

The ultraviolet rays that accompany sunlight can discolor and damage the shell of your board.

A wet environment can encourage mold and mildew and possibly damage the shell material of your board.

Exposure to high temperatures, either caused by the sun or another heat source, can do damage to the core materials and potentially cause the shell of the board to delaminate.


It’s no easy task to find the right place to store it – especially if you live in an apartment. Having a garage is the most convenient storage place for your board, whether it is inflatable or epoxy.


The temperature in garage is more stable, there is no direct sunlight, and you can keep it off the ground by installing a set of racks plus, you can keep all accessories close in the same environment so that you don’t lose anything in the offseason.


Keeping it inside is a good solution so that the board is not exposed to the sun’s rays. Even though it will be stored indoors, you will still want to be aware of the placement of your board. Storing it directly across from a window in the hottest part of the house still exposes it to heat and sunlight. Because of this, it can still be subject to discoloration.

Remember that when you buy one of our boards, the set always includes the necessary accessories, including a backpack in which you can store the board, but only after deflating it, it’s also an option. When you do it, make sure the board is clean and completely dry. You need to avoid tightly compressing the board (stowing it loosely rolled up is best). Keep it in a cool, dry place (ideally indoors).

Remember to keep your board clean. Always clean sand, salt and dirt after you finish playing in the water. You can also wash it with soap and water, never use strong cleaners! Let the board dry before putting it away. A sun-protective spray can be applied to your SUP to provide protection from UV light.

If you know how to store paddle boards properly, you should be able to paddle board for many years to come with your board. Isn’t it great to know all these things?
