    Yep. I have an ARB mounted in the truck and it does a great job of inflating the kids kayaks, air mattresses etc...
    I haven't read any reviews on the Smitty air compressor. Everyone I know uses ARB or Viair but the Smitty looks pretty affordable and I think they have a good warranty policy.

    You shouldn’t do it! There are electric pumps designed specifically for sups. An air compressor, compresses the air and creates moisture. Having moisture in your sup is a good way to ruin it!

    I worked at a store that sells high end sups and am on team CANADA for sup (just so you don’t think I’m full of shit lol).

    Almost went the route of compressed air for my SUPs until i read this. Thank you @flinky14 for the advice. Had some REI gift cards so i picked up the airhead pump. Says it pumps up 33% faster than others. Not bad but definitely takes a while between 5psi and 15 psi.
