How long does it take to set up and inflate?

There isn’t really any set up required, you just unfold the kayak and inflate it, then clip in the seat(s). The time taken depends on the model of kayak and on the pump used, but roughly 6 to 10 minutes. The double action hand pump is quicker than the foot pump, but also harder on the back. Allow yourself plenty of time the first time as it will take a bit of time to go through the instructions and find the appropriate valves etc.
