sibility for any damage or injury that may occur.
Clear Water shall have no liability whatsoever for any

We recommend that you receive instructions in
proper paddling techniques, safety and security on the

Our Owner’s Manual gives you a summary of the import-
ant points to follow for a pleasant and safe experience.
Hypothermia is a dangerous drop in the body’s core
temperature below the normal level (37˚C or 98.6˚F). Marine
accidents are very dangerous and can be more so if you are
poorly prepared for the cold water.
Make sure you are familiar with your surroundings. Avoid
standing on the board if there are docks, rocks or any
object that present falling hazard. Be aware of permitted
navigation hours and emergency services.
Realistically evaluate your physical capacities and resistance
should you have to swim to the shore.
Your board can be slippery when wet. Therefore, it is
recommended that you wear slip-resistant shoes.
Never allow children to use the SUP without adult supervision.
Coast guard regulations
Always abide by Coast Guard regulations, State and local laws,
ordinances, and rules concerning boating and boating safety.
• Keep your hand on paddle at all time.
• Make sure water is deep enough to avoid
damage to the fin.

The best way to clean your SUP is with water. However,
with tougher stains, you can use soft soap and a non-abra-
sive plastic brush.
The easiest way to store your SUP is to lay it on a flat
surface. If your SUP remains outdoors, you should keep it
covered and out of direct sunlight. Do not leave any straps
tightly clinched around your SUP for long periods, especial-
ly in warm weather. This can distort the shape of the SUP.
Do not leave any weight on your SUP while in storage.
You may find an accumulation of water inside the board.
Clear Water SUP’s are equipped with drain plugs to remove
this accumulated water.
