In what way? Do they let air out when they shouldn't, or not let it in when they should, or something else?

They tend to stick and not turn at all.

Most common issue on i9's is that people try and put air into the bilge valve in the front - that is not a air valve, it's there to drain water from the bilge area if any gets in - trying to put air into that valve will damage the kayak.

There are only 3 air valves in all 3 of our i series kayak models - 1 for the floor, and 2 for the sides.

Review the owner's manual for help, or get your dealer to help directly, call toll free 1800hobie49
