Attach the pump hose to the pump. Make sure it is not cross-thread.
Remove the outer cap on the board.
Ensure the valve is in the up position.
(The valve has 2 positions. Up position for inflation and storage, down position for deflation. Adjust by pushing it slightly and turning it)
Insert the hose into the valve port then push and turn clock-wise until snug.
(Note: You may need to push hard before turning. Be careful to turn the mouth of the hose only. Do not twist the hose itself.)
Pump using an up and down motion until the needle reads 12-14 PSI. Do not exceed max pressure of 15 PSI.
(Note: If your pump has a little plug on a string near the top, you have a two-stage pump. Put the plug in the hole and tighten for two-stage inflation. Remove the plug when pulling up becomes awkward for one-stage inflation.)
Remove the pump and replace the outer cap. You're ready to go!
