Don't inflate the front cap - that is a vent area and not designed to be inflated - you will just fill the three chambers through the valves that are located in the read of the kayak. Th Hobie hand pump is a high volume pump and once it gets stiff - you are there, there isn't a good way to measure PSI, but you can feel it by touch that its full - and the pump will no longer add air.

Call your dealer directly for help if needed 1800hobie49

Also; remember not to use an electric pump to fill, just to start the process if necessary. Electric pumps will continue to fill and split a seam!!!
There is a user manual somewhere in the hobie site... Go there and search the site....
