SAFETY PROTOCOL

Safe operating procedures for the MiniFit SUP inside a pool

 

ACHORING THE BOARD

-In a pool, each board should be anchored front and back.
-May be anchored to swimming corridors’ lines or custom designed lines.
-Do not tie boards too tight to the lines; keep a loose to avoid too much pressure on the lines.
-First put the board in the water, then get in the water, then get on the board after being in the water.
-Get to your anchor position by paddling like on a surfboard (laying on stomach or knees and hand paddle to get to the anchor point) or you may walk if in shallow water.
-Never stand up before anchoring the board.
-Starting on the knees first and acclimate your body to the new environment/activity before to stand up.

RECOMMENDED DISTANCES & DEPTH

-There should be 4 feet between each participant’s boards.
-The nearest board from the edge of the pool should be anchored at a minimum of 6 feet away from the side edge of the pool.
-There should be a minimum of 4 feet deep of water.

FALLING TIPS:

-Do not jump far from the board.
-Put your center of gravity as low as you can as fast as you can.
-Do not jump on someone else’s board.
-Fall strait feet first or flat on belly or back,
do not dive headfirst.

GET BACK ON YOUR BOARD AFTER FALLING IN THE WATER SAFELY:

-Get to the side of the board facing the center handle.
-Put both hands on the centerline of the board.
-Bring your feet and body parallel to the surface of the water by kicking your feet.
-Push up and slide the board under your belly while kicking.
-Turn to face the front of the board.

PRODUCT CARE

-Don’t step on the board if on the ground to avoid fins bend and falling on hard surface.
-Do not wear shoes on the board
-Inflate de board between 14 and 15 psi pressure, precisely
-Do not leave under strong sun and heat exposure; hot air expands. Therefor, if a board is left for too long on a hot surface with direct sun exposure it could explode.

STORAGE OF THE BOARD:

-Boards should be stored along a wall near the pool or within a storage room.
-Store standing up; make sure to use a safety system (rope or rack securing the boards) to avoid boards from falling down.
-Make sure that the fins under a board are facing the fins of another board. To avoid any damage on EVA pad (top) of other boards.
-Store in a shaded area.
-Do not lean against sharp corners or edges.

HOW TO MOVE THE BOARD AROUND
