SUP pump help

We have NRS big earl and badfish SUPs and 2 years ago invested $175 in Bravo high pressure electric pump. It has stopped working. I was told there was adaptor that you can buy to convert standard air compressor to allow for filling to high pressure. Any experience with this? I have k pump 220 to top off on river but often it is my wife filling sups so doing it by hand on regular basis is not going to fly. Any input on pumps/adaptors is much appreciated.

Be very very careful comrade I have heard of more than one sorry soul who is over inflated with an air compressor. Not sure what brand you bought or if you are the type to read the actual instructions but many companies expressly tell you not to do that.

Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life on or off the river. is offline   Reply With Quote

If your air compressor has a reglated outlet, set it for about 20psi or whatever your inflatable SUP manufacturer recommends.

A lot of air compressors come with that blowoff gun; wrap electrical tape around the end until you get a diameter the same as the inside of your valve. Or you can stack a couple pieces of vinyl tubing of increasingly larger diameter over that valve.

I used a piece of 1/4" rubber hose with a piece of garden hose jammed over it, and use it to inflate my rafts. Above caveat from mkashzg is good advice--don't over-inflate, your air compressor doesn't care!
