FAQ Paddle accessories

1 – What accessories are needed for inflatable stand-up paddling?

 

To practice the inflatable SUP you will need: a paddle, a leash, a fin (retractable or not), and an inflator (electric or manual). It is much more practical to have a carry bag as well and a repair kit can be useful. The Easy and Ocean Walker ready-to-go packs have everything you need to go straight into the water. Otherwise, all these essentials are available in the SUP section of our website.

 

2 – How to choose your paddle seat?

The most important thing to do before choosing a paddle seat is to make sure that your SUP has inserts to attach it. Our Malibu 10’s and 10’6’s as well as our Easy 10’s and 10’6’s are equipped with bridges that allow the attachment of a kayak seat.

You will need to choose a seat that is comfortable, made from quality materials and is durable.

 

3 – Which pump to choose to inflate your paddle?

To inflate your stand up paddle you have two choices, the manual pump or the electric pump. The SROKA double action manual pump is efficient and powerful, it promises you a quick inflation.

However, with our electric pump your paddle will be inflated without any effort. Compact and light, it is practical to use thanks to its auto-stop device which stops the pump when the paddle is sufficiently inflated. To operate it, nothing could be simpler, just plug it into a cigarette lighter socket.

 

4 – Waterproof bag, what volume?

The recommended volume obviously depends on what you want to put inside. As a general rule, a 5 litre bag is ideal. It allows you to put your phone, your car keys, a small bottle of water and a jumper. This size is perfect to fit into the nets of our inflatable SUPs (found on the Girly, Malibu 10′ and the entire Alpha range).

 

5 – What is the budget for inflatable paddle accessories?

For the Easy range (except Easy Duo) and the Ocean Walker, the accessories are included in the package, they are sold “ready to go”. So there is: leash, carrying bag, double action pump, fin and three part aluminium paddle. You don’t have to pay anything extra for the accessories.

All our other ranges are available as standard packs or as complete packs, so you get all the accessories at a great price. The full pack option is approximately £150 more.

The standard pack includes the board, fin, carry bag and hand pump. The full pack adds to the standard pack: a 50% carbon paddle, a leash and an electric pump (instead of the manual pump).

If you wish to buy the elements present in the full pack individually, you will need to spend around 230€.

 

6 – Are the Sroka paddle accessories guaranteed?

Like all SROKA products, the accessories are guaranteed for 2 years (subject to proper use of the product).
