FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW SOLID IS A CALA BOARD IN TERMS OF LIFESPAN AND DURABILITY?

We have carried out endless material and stress tests and developed extremely robust boards for you. A Cala board is a great and durable companion for all your trips and adventures. If you handle your board with care and caution, you will enjoy it for a long time.

CAN I LEARN HOW TO SURF A CALA BOARD?

Definitely! There are many great videos for beginners, valuable tips and training on YouTube. Many SUP schools around the world choose inflatable boards because they are light and therefore the risk of injury is extremely low.

ARE INFLATABLE BOARDS COMPARABLE TO HARD BOARDS?

If your board is inflated correctly, you will hardly notice any difference to a compact board in classic stand-up paddling. For high performance surfing, you will have to adjust your style slightly as the inflatable board behaves a little differently, but it is still very controllable. The main advantage is and remains that you can fold your board and transport it space-saving and you can take it anywhere. Our boards love travelling and adventure on the water.

HOW LONG CAN I LEAVE THE BOARD WITHOUT VENTING IT?

Over time, there will be a certain loss of pressure, which occurs especially with strong temperature fluctuations. Before you go out on the water, you should check the pressure and stability and add air if necessary. Make sure your board is not exposed to the sun for long periods of time without protection and if you are not going to use it for a while, reduce the pressure to less than 10 psi.

HOW MUCH PRESSURE DOES THE BOARD NEED?

Our boards are designed to withstand a lot of pressure, although it is not necessary for the pressure to be higher than 20 psi. Higher pressure does not increase the stiffness or stability of the board, but you will find that it is harder to press the valve to release air and of course it takes longer to inflate the board. For general use, 15-18psi is optimal. Faster and more advanced riders will benefit from a pressure close to 15psi.

HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY BOARD?

Justtreatyour board like a good friend and it will stay in good shape. Ideally, you should wash your board with fresh water after a trip and protect it from direct sunlight. When you're at home, it's best to store it loosely rolled up so that you can enjoy it for a long time.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE REPAIR KIT?

In the unlikely event that you do tear a hole in your board, you will find glue and patches in the enclosed repair kit to repair your board. For best results, let the glue cure overnight. We have also included the appropriate tools to remove the valve from the board if necessary.

CAN SUN AND HEAT CAUSE THE BOARD TO INFLATE TOO MUCH?

No, but we recommend that you do not expose the board to direct sunlight for long periods of time. If you follow this advice, your board will stay in top shape for a long time.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE MY BOARD ?

Your board is great rolled up and stored in a bag, but you can also store it inflated. If you don't use your board for a longer period of time, we recommend storing it loosely rolled up in a cool, dry place.
