Assembly instructions

Please read the instructions and take the time to watch the videos. This is for your own safety and the longevity of your tent.

The 1st structure

During the first assembly, a few extra steps are necessary to prepare BAJAO Cabin for use. We recommend doing this at home

Step 1: Close the two white main valves on your tent so that no air can escape. Then open the white cap on one side to inflate the tent. There are check valves in the valves so that the air can get in but not out again. Screw the pump adapter provided onto the valve and connect your SUP pump. Pump up the rods so hard that they feel stiff. (max 4 PSI) Note that air expands in the heat and the pressure should not be too high if it is in the sun. If in doubt, let some air out.)

Step 2:
At each foot of the tent there are 2 grey tabs which must be connected to the eyelets on the tent.
Lacing on the feet
Two black straps are attached to each of the 4 feet, which must be connected to the side pipes.



Straps with G-Buckle

Step 3: Now find the 4 straps with the G-buckle. These must now be threaded through the loops provided on the inside of the side pipes. Two loops per strap. You start on one side, then the straps are carefully and without twisting them led under the tent floor to the opposite side, and

Straps under the tent

There, on the inside of the second side pipe, pull it through the loops again. Now hook the total of 8 humps onto the bottom of the inner tent. Choose the loop that fits your board width.

Straps for pants and tail

Step 4: The two straps with the plastic buckles are pulled through the three strap loops on the nose and tail of the tent. It has been shown that it makes sense to shorten the loops for most boards. The tent is now completely prepared. Continue with Step 5.

Assembly instructions from the 2nd assembly

From the 2nd setup onwards you only need steps 1 and 5-9 and the special instructions.

Step 5 : Slide your SUP board through the floor loops under the tent. Make sure the board is between the loops and the tent floor. Slide the board through until the side pipes are approximately halfway down the length of the board.

Step 6 : Place the straps at the foot and head of the tent around the nose and tail of your SUP board. Close the plastic buckles and pull the straps tight so that the inner tent is taut on the board. Once the tent is stretched along its entire length, the four ground straps can be closed. Now your inner tent is firmly mounted on the SUP board. Make sure that the straps are really tight and not twisted (see image 3).

Step 7 : Unfold the flysheet and place it over the inner tent of BAJAO Cabin. Make sure the entrance of the flysheet and inner tent are on the same side and closed. Then attach the 2 Velcro straps to the roof ridges and the 8 Velcro straps to the tent poles.

Step 8: Guide the straps of the flysheet (2 each at the nose and tail) under the lashing straps already attached to the board and tighten them with the hook so that the flysheet is well tensioned (see Figure 4).

Step 9: Your BAJAO Cabin is now fully assembled and ready for use! Depending on the location and type of use, small adjustments are still necessary, which we will explain to you below.

Spending the night on the water

Set up your BAJAO Cabin on your SUP board on land as described in steps 1-9.
Then, ensure you have a safe, protected anchorage. Make sure you do not anchor in the surf, a flowing body of water, a shipping zone, an environmental zone or any other dangerous area. Also, ensure adequate anchoring by using a suitable anchor or by securing the cabin or SUP board to a jetty or tree.

Spending the night on the water is only recommended in knee-deep water and at your own risk.

Overnight on land without board

Assemble your BAJAO cabin as described in steps 1-9, with minor exceptions.
To sleep on land without the board as a base, you must remove the sidepipes or simply not fill them with air. Otherwise the tent floor will sag and could tear due to too much tension.
To prevent this, you must close the connection between the side pipes and main chambers as described in step 2 or remove the side hoses completely. In any case, make sure to close the valves that connect the side pipes to the main chambers so that no air can get in or out.
Once the side pipes have been removed, you can continue to set up your BAJAO cabin as described in the instructions and spend the night on land! In this case, it is necessary to secure the tent with the tent pegs provided.

Sleeping on the roof of the car

Set up your BAJAO Cabin on your SUP board on land as described in steps 1-9.
Basically, sleeping on the roof of your car is only recommended in calm weather. Make sure that your vehicle and the roof rack are approved for the weight and will not be damaged.
With the additional tensioning straps (not included) you can now attach the BAJAO Cabin to the roof rack. For additional support, the guy ropes can be attached to the roof rack or to the car itself. The tent and board should be attached to the roof so that nothing can slip. Excessive strain on the nose and tail should be avoided.
