Yes, You Can Leave Your Board Inflated
The short answer is: yes, you can leave your board inflated for an extended amount of time. However, there are a few important things to know.
Safely Store Your Paddle Board
Firstly, you will want to be sure to store it properly as this can make a world of difference both in the short term as well as the long term. To do so, you will want to find a cool and dry place that is preferably out of direct sunlight; and, for best results, we suggest keeping your SUP off the ground, if possible.

Check the Air Pressure Before Using it
Secondly, if you intend to keep your SUP fully inflated in between uses, then please be sure to check the air pressure before using it, as an SUP will eventually lose some or all of its air. What’s more, this is especially true if the storage situation is less than ideal. Rest assured, as long as the air pressure is good to go, then you typically should be fine.

Inspect Your Board Before Putting it in the Water
Finally, be sure to thoroughly inspect your board before putting it in the water, especially if you anticipate any potential problems such as leaks, holes, or anything else. Additionally, if your inflated SUP was not stored properly, such as sitting out in the sun for hours or days on end, then it may have busted seams, weakened glue, and other serious problems. In any case, proper storage and due diligence can make a world of difference – both in the quality of your board as well as your paddling experiences.
