How would I reenter my fus if I flip

If I am out and flip. What is the easiest way. Would I pull myself up the back? This is mostly for lake and ocean.

The FUS is easy to reenter. It works a bit like any inflatable boat. Pull yourself up on the side of the seating area. Turn 180 once on top and you're sitting 90 off on the FUS. All you need to do now is carefully get your legs aboard.

Dunno if side re-entry will work for all paddlers. When using the Lagoon or the Expedition or StraitEdge2, I find that doing a cowboy climb over the bow works better than trying to climb over the side.

Hopping on like a cowboy is the way to go if you don't pack a paddle float.
You need to practice both techniques before you actually need em though!
