Red Paddle Co inflatable SUPs – Which pump to use?

Inflatable-SUP-pump-Ezee-and-K-pumpWow, inflatable SUP pumps have come a long way in just a few short years. K-Pump has developed a true two stage pump with both a high volume and high pressure cylinder for quick and then high pressure inflation. They come in two sizes, they have universal valve adaptors making them super easy to use, they are made in the USA and are tough as nails. So, this called for a comparison test against the standard Bravo made pumps. The Red Paddle Co Ezee and the Red Paddle Co Ezee HP are the two standard Bravo pumps that usually ship with inflatable stand up paddle boards.

Pictured are the Ezee, Ezee HP, the K-220 and the K-20. Green Water Sports, online specialist retailer for all things inflatable SUP, have done a comparison article with the 4 pumps featured. Check out the K-Pump and Red Paddle Co pump comparison.
