PADDLEBOARD CARE and MAINTENANCE

KEEP IN A WELL VENTILATED, SHADED AREA when NOT IN USE. Direct sunlight can damage a board if left exposed for a period of time. At approximately 74°C (165°F) all EPS foam begins to out-gas, become unstable and delaminate. Delamination is characterized by a separation of the board’s core from the protective epoxy skin. Delamination is a damage that is not repairable and should be avoided at all costs. Keep your board in an area with good air flow and circulation. Leaving your board in a vehicle during the day (closed or open) elevates the risk for delamination. Even on a mild day at 21°C (mid-to-high 70°F), the inside of a car can reach 77°C (170° F), well above the out-gas temperature threshold.

LIMIT EXPOSURE OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT to the DECK-SIDE of the board. While the benefits of a non-slip traction pad are obvious, they also increase the risk of overheating and delamination. While in use, water flowing over the deck helps to regulate surface temperature. But when the deck traction pad is dry, the effects of heat absorption are amplified when exposed to direct sunlight. If you must expose your board to direct sunlight during transport or temporary storage, it is safest to keep the white (bottom) facing up.

Overheating your paddleboard is not covered by manufacturing warranty!

FOR WARRANTY INFORMATION, PARTS/ACCESSORIES, CALL 1-800-370-0745 OR CONTACT US THROUGH OUR WEB SITE, WWW.JIMMYSTYKS.COM 26


SEC TION 2 DO NOT STORE YOUR BOARD IN A BOARD BAG FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME. Board bags are intended for transportation protection, not full time storage. Prolonged storage of a wet board in a wet board bag will have adverse effects on the finish of your board, leading to the possibility of mold, and osmotic blisters. Storing your board in a board bag is not the same as placing it in the shade. Board bags will collect heat and potentially overheat your board.

Rinse sand and saltwater deposits from your board AFTER USE. Sun, sand and saltwater will degrade any man-made material over time. Rinse off sand and saltwater deposits from your paddle board with fresh water and store in a cool, dry environment after each use.

INSPECT YOUR BOARD FOR DINGS and CRACKS BEFORE and AFTER EACH USE. The EPS Core of your board is highly absorbent and acts as a sponge when the protective watertight epoxy skin is compromised. To prevent your board from becoming waterlogged (heaviness and drag as a result of water absorption), regularly inspect the exterior for dings and cracks. If you spot a crack, patching with epoxy is the preferred method of repair. Jimmy StyksTM boards use minimal colored paints/decals in areas prone to damage so repairs can be made with minimal aesthetic disruption.

JIMMY STYKS TM VENT HANDLE USE

The Jimmy StyksTM board vent is conveniently integrated into the carry handle. Venting regulates the air pressure within the watertight skin of the paddleboard. C O A S T soft A L sups) C R come U I S equipped E R Most models (excluding 11’6” x 30” x 4 / ” with a “self-breathing” vent cap (installed) and a spare “standard” vent cap.

SEC TION 3 CLOSE THE VENT BEFORE EACH USE OPEN THE VENT AFTER EACH USE. Regulating the internal air pressure of your paddleboard is the most important maintenance task involved with your stand-up paddleboard. Opening the air vent allows air to escape freely to avoid over-pressurization. Neglecting the air vent maintenance may compromise the integrity of the watertight skin or cause severe delamination. Leaving the air vent open while in use will allow water and moisture to enter the foam core resulting in a heavy “water-logged” paddleboard.

JIMMY STYKS TM VENT HANDLE USE

CLOSE THE VENT BEFORE EACH USE OPEN THE VENT AFTER EACH USE. SELF-BREATHING CAP VENTING

Regulating the internal air pressure of your paddleboard is the most important maintenance task involved with your stand-up paddleboard. “Self-Breathing” caps feature a Gore-Tex® membrane that allows air to permeate freely through the vent while preventing water and other molecules from entering the paddle board. While “Self-Breathing” caps minimize damage caused by pressurization and heat, it is important that you open the vent completely after use and close before each use. Leaving the air vent open while in use will allow water and moisture to enter the foam core resulting in a heavy “water-logged” paddleboard.

Handle

Self-Breathing Cap with GORE-TEX® Membrane

Gore-Tex® recommends replacing the self-breathing membrane every 12 months. While Jimmy StyksTM does not sell individual replacement Gore-Tex® membranes, replacement JS Water Gear vent caps with pre-installed Gore-Tex® membranes are available for purchase through our online accessory store.

SEC TION 3 LOST VENT CAP SOLUTIONS A 500 mL (20 oz.) soft drink bottle cap can be used as a temporary solution for a lost Jimmy StyksTM vent cap. Jimmy StyksTM vent handles are designed to interface with all Coca-Cola Company速 and PepsiCo, Inc.速 brand 500 mL (20 oz.) soft drink bottle caps. NOTE: Bottle cap thread pitch varies by manufacturer. Not all Coca-Cola速 and Pepsi速 brand bottle caps may fit the Jimmy StyksTM vent handles. Using a bottle cap is recommended only as a temporary solution until a replacement Jimmy StyksTM vent cap is acquired. For replacement parts contact Jimmy StyksTM at: 1-800-370-0745.

FIN INSTALLATION

RAIL FIN INSTALLATION/REMOVAL Rail fins have an inside and outside. The flat side of the fin always faces toward the center stabilizer fin. Some JIMMY STYKSTM models are equipped with advanced fin configurations (5 fin models). 5 fin models can be ridden as a single, thruster (3 fin) or quad (4 fin) arrangement. Fin configurations for 5 fin models are entirely dependent on personal preference and environment.

STEP 1 Insert rail fin into FCS plug slots. Note: Flat side of fin always faces toward stabilizer.

STEP 2 INSERT fin until base of fin is flush with bottom of board.

SEC TION 6 FOR BEST RESULTS, LEARN TO USE THE PADDLE CORREC TLY. Paddles have a FORWARD and BACK facing side. The ribbed side of the handle, adjustable lever and “JIMMY STYKSTM” logo on the blade indicate the FORWARD facing side. Additionally, blade should be in a FORWARD ANGLE (as shown on right). Proper paddle orientation while paddling will maximize stroke efficiency and move the greatest volume of water when paddling. By practicing proper paddling techniques, you will be able to paddle longer and farther while conserving energy.

TRANSPORTATION TIPS

WHEN STRAPPING TO ROOF, BOARD SHOULD BE BOTTOM SIDE UP. When securing your paddle board to the roof of a vehicle, always place the board bottom side up. Placing the board topside up will create wind drag and instability while driving. Placing board nose forward or tail forward are both acceptable means of transport .

OVER-TIGHTENING STRAPS MAY RESULT IN PRESSURE DINGS. PADDED STRAPS ARE RECOMMENDED OVER NON-PADDED NYLON STRAPS. FOR WARRANTY INFORMATION, PARTS/ACCESSORIES, CALL 1-800-370-0745 OR CONTACT US THROUGH OUR WEB SITE, WWW.JIMMYSTYKS.COM 42


SEC TION 7 REMOVE VENT CAP and O-RING WHEN STACKING MULTIPLE BOARDS. The JS vent cap may cause pressure dings when stacking multiple boards. Completely remove vent cap and o-ring prior to stacking boards. As a precaution, placing a cushioned barrier between stacked boards will further protect against dings and cracks.

DAMAGE RESULTING FROM improper care/ handling are void of warranty.

Warranty: Jimmy StyksTM will make every effort to produce boards to the highest quality and standards in the industry.

In the event of a new board being removed from a box and not in good condition please contact the office for resolution.

If it is deemed a manufacturing or material flaw, we will issue an RMA number. This number along with the damaged product will need to be returned to the closest warehouse (Vancouver or Huntington Beach) at customer’s expense. Upon physical review, Jimmy StyksTM will make its final determination as to the nature of the damage or flaw and issue a replacement product (model depends on availability), or store credit. Shipping will be the responsibility of the customer. We are not responsible for damage or defects once the board has been used. Damage is defined as impact with any object or material, damage due to dropping, loading, unloading, or transport, alterations or modifications, repairs, natural disasters, fires, temperatures below 4.4 oC (40 oF), or above 43 oC (110 oF), any further use of a board once a claim has been reported, transport or storage of a board with a closed air valve, use of a board in the water with a loose or removed air valve, failure to clean and service air vent valve, storage of a board in extremely hot or humid conditions including a wet or damp board bag.
