How to stay safe on your stand up paddleboard

Checking your beltpack buoyancy aid

It’s not enough just to own a beltpack, you also need to know how to use it, and that it is in good working order.

It will give you a whole lot more confidence that you can use it in a genuine emergency, even if the auto-inflate system malfunctions.
