Driftsun high pressure pump with Atoll iSUP Anura Guruge



I got a Driftsun High Pressure, High Volume Dual Inflate/Deflate Stage Bravo Electric Pump to go with my Atoll 11′ stand up paddle board (iSUP). The Driftsun seemed identical to the one that Atoll markets from their Website — but as I already mentioned I was placing my order through Amazon to avail myself to the great zero-interest financing I get from Amazon.

I have used the Atoll twice so far, bot with great success and each time I inflated it with the Driftsun. The Driftsun does come with a Halkey-Roberts (HR) high pressure air valve adapter — and that is the fitting that Atoll expects. Works fine so far. The Driftsun only goes up to 14.5psi but Atoll and others have claimed that that is fine and plenty. I, however, did not go that far up since it was just going to be I with all of my 158 pounds. So, I stopped at 13.5psi. Seems OK.

Getting up to 13.5psi only takes about 5 minutes. Yes, it gets loud. Towards the end I end up holding down the valve just to be on the safe side.

So far, so good. I am pleased.
