Small leaks can be repaired easily and permanently. To locate a leak, we recommend mixing soap and water in a spray bottle. Spray around the inside and outside of the board until air bubbles become visible and mark the position of the leak. If you do not find air bubbles, inflate the board to maximum air pressure and listen to find the leak. If you can narrow the area down, return with a spray bottle to identify the source of the leak.
Punctures less than 1/8” in size can be repaired simply without a patch. Deflate board, then clean and dry the area to be repaired. Apply a small drop of PVC repair glue to cover the puncture, and let dry 12 hours. Using the glue on a small leak will help to stop air from escaping and provide a permanent barrier.
