Hello, all! My GF and I instantly loved our first paddleboard session and bought our own inflatables (DAMA). The supplied pump is fine, but I am trying out motorized ones and am hoping for some recommendations.
My first purchase was a cheap adapter for my electric bike tire pump. That didn’t do anything.
Next I purchased a Teromas Tire Inflator (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07W1W2V9M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) which seemed to work after a while, but took a long time.
So I splurged on a more expensive Tuomico SUP Pump (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08L4SGS2X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). This went quicker, but the adapter doesn’t stay connected to the board, so I have to hold it down (forcefully) the entire time it’s inflating.
Does anyone here have a recommendation for a really good pump? I really don’t want to spend over $100. Or is that the magical price point at which the pumps get good. If so, which one do you recommend?
Also, when pumping this up, I got it up to about 8PSI and it seemed incredibly solid. But the board instructions say to inflate to 15PSI. I think it might explode! What are some PSI recommendations? Does it really need to go that high?
