iSUPs / Docks & Accessories

Check your valve for debris or any broken parts. If it is all good, then while the board is deflated, use the valve tool from the orange repair kit to tighten the valve. All you need to do is line up the teeth and gently tighten (clockwise). That should take care of it. If not please let us know. The valves are installed by hand and can loosen up over time and do need to be tightened here and there.

Generally speaking, no, the aluminum paddles do not float. If you drop one in the water it will float for a short amount of time before filling with water and sinking. If you are concerned about losing a paddle to the depths we recommend attaching a small section of pool noodle or pipe insulation to the shaft near the handle.

Fins are not covered by any sort of warranty.

They are thin so they can break easily if you're not careful. Never put the board down on the ground, fins first if the long fin is installed.

When in doubt, take the middle fin out!

Be very careful in shallow water! You can get replacements from the website.

The hand pump gauge only begins to register when there is at least 7-8 PSI in the board. The board will feel very firm at that point. We suggest you keep pumping until it starts to register. If it still wont work, shoot us an email at inquiries@highsocietyfreeride.com and we can help you out.

Our SUP manuals can be found here.

The Sundeck may arrive with cosmetic creasing in the EVA pad due to shipping. This is normal and will not affect the performance of the dock.

  • The creasing is a result of packaging/folding necessary to ensure safe and cost-effective shipping, and is common in all large, dock-like products in the market
  • To reduce and ultimately remove the creases requires a combination of: i) inflation; ii) moisture, and iii) time. Inflate the dock and add a small amount of water to the creased area, allowing the foam trackpad to expand and return to it’s original form. This may take a few weeks and/or 4-6 episodes of use to complete the transition
  • The dock also contains a carry strap that offers a ‘rolled storage’ option which will also help to resolve creasing and prevent it in the future

Skis & Snowboards


This is the length center of the ski. Mount here if you are skiing predominately in the park. Best skis for this mount position are the Berzerk and Unseen. Larger park riders will also mount the FRC at this location.


"Progressive Boot Center" - This is recommended for freestlye oriented riders skiing the Vixen and FX. The mounting position is still over the camber of the ski, but is pushed forward to allow for easier spinning.


"Classic Boot Center" - 95% of our customers mount their skis at this position. It is the best spot to mount at for all mountain skiing in any conditions.

Email us at inquiries@highsocietyfreeride.com for AT and telemark mounting recommendations. Written recommendations will be posted shortly.

The three main factors to take into consideration are your weight, your skill level and the type of terrain you are going to be riding. The boards don't react to the users height, but they do react to the users weight and ability to apply pressure to the effective edges. A board that is too small with over flex and feel loose and unstable. A board that is too big will be too stiff and will be harder to turn and manipulate. Boot size is also a factor to consider when choosing a snowboard. Our standard with boards will accommodate a men's 10.5-11, depending on the boot/binding combo and desired riding angles. We do have wide boards to accept the bigger sizes. If the user is a novice to intermediate, a shorter board that fits in the proper weight index will be a bit easier to learn on and gain confidence. A longer board will be better for more aggressive riders looking for more stability at high speeds, better landing platform and more float in the powder. Also, as our boards get longer, the flex pattern gets progressively stiffer.

All High Society products come out of the factory waxed up and tuned, ready to shred. However, we do recommend a deep hot wax application by a professional tune shop either before your first run, or after your first day. It'll keep your base in great condition and keep you sliding with ease. For skis, we recommend DE-TUNING, or dulling the early rise portion of your ski edge with a green fibertex cloth or a gummy stone. No need for a file on this. Also we recommmend a lite detune of the tip and tail edges, starting from where the effective edge contacts point out to the very tip and tail. You dont need to detune the effective edges.

High Society has been building premium outdoor gear since 2003. Our collection represents 20+ years of research, development and innovation. During this time we worked directly with thousands of customers to fit them with the right HS gear. Our knowledgeable team can communicate with you by phone, live chat, or in person to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your purchase. We are so confident in our gear's quality, performance, and fit that we are proud to offer the HS Guarantee.

HS focuses on direct to consumer sales - this allows us to price our product competitively for you, the customer. However, it makes it more difficult to get hands on the product prior to making the purchase. We understand this and are offering the HS Performance Guarantee to prove our commitment to quality and performance.
