There are 2 options to packing your Astro.
Option 1, start by rolling the board from the nose as tightly as possible. Flatten the board in-between rolling to remove excess air. Turn the valve clockwise and replace the valve cap. Then repack the Astro back into the Astro magic bag. Pack the dis-assembled paddle in afterwards.
Option 2 – start by folding most of the air out. Then switch the pump pipe to the IN socket. Insert the pipe into the air valve and start to pump to deflate the board. The pump sucks out any remaining air in the Astro. Once deflated, remove the pump and close the air valve. Dis-assemble the paddle and then place it at the top of the deflated board and then roll up the board and paddle together. Lastly, place the paddle and Astro back into the Astro magic bag. Fasten the clips and drawstring. Dissemble the pump by removing the foot base and pipe and pack it into the pump compartment.
