Red Paddle Co have been releasing a series of instructional videos to help maintain your paddleboard and to keep your equipment in good shape. The series is known as Whiteboard Wednesday and is updated fortnightly and this week features Jon Parlby, talking us the through and demonstrating the impressive Red Paddle Titan Pump that he cleverly designed.
What makes the Titan Pump stand out from the crowd is that due to its clever design, you spend half the time and effort inflating your SUP, compared to other Paddleboard pumps and means you can get out on the water sooner and with more energy in the tank. Apart from the obvious aesthetic differences, the Titan cleverly features two pump cylinders of different size, that use a gearing system, which can be used to isolate the pump chambers when you begin to feel resistance, and allow you to use only half the pump at a higher pressure to harden the board up.
Even with Jon talking as he demonstrates the pump in action, he manages to inflate his paddleboard in just over 2 minutes to a pressure of 18 PSI. The Red Paddle Co video of Jon explaining the mechanics of the Titan and inflating the board can be seen below. Have you used the Titan pump yet and are you impressed with the ease in which Jon inflates his board?
