How Do I Know if the Pressure is Right?

It is important not to over inflate your kayak because it could cause damage, but it is equally important not to under inflate your kayak, because it won’t perform well on the water.

Your kayak should be quite firm to touch, and it should be rigid when you pick it up at either end.

The best way to be sure you have the right pressure is to use a pressure gauge. The Double Action Hand Pump With Gauge has a built in pressure gauge, OR you can get the Inline Valve Adaptor with Gauge for use with any pump.
