Red Paddle Co. 12'6 Explorers at the Rainbow River in Dunnellon,FL.

We’ve been making inflatable SUP boards since 2008 and that’s all we make. This focus allows us to look at the world of inflatable boards from a unique perspective and it allows you to own a product that is designed to give you the absolute best experience possible.

We believe that owning an inflatable board should not mean you have to compromise on performance, looks or quality. We believe that the experience you get when you use one of our boards is that of an authentic SUP experience and not a low quality substitute to the real thing. Inflatable SUP boards offer the ultimate in convenience but this should not be at the expense of performance.

We’ve always thought of the design of our boards as so much more than just how they look. It’s the whole experience. Owning an inflatable board is about storage, transportation, ease of inflation, as well as on-water performance. To design a board is only part of the process. Owning a Red Paddle Co inflatable board is about the whole package, the real deal and not some compromising experience that leaves you wanting more.

Here are a just a few of things that set our boards apart from all other inflatable brands:

Get carried away. Effortlessly.

After covering over 100,000 miles with our boards we had a really good idea of what was needed from the ultimate bag. Our all new bag has the most significant developments yet seen with inflatable board bags. It has integrated wheels that make travelling through airports a pleasure. The hidden back pack system can be stowed when not in use and is super comfy when you need to put the board on your back. The front loading system makes packing and unpacking super simple.The internal straps make sure the board stays put while in transit. This bag truly is the ultimate solution for travel and storage. 

The new bag has many features including:

  • Integrated wheels = makes travelling with your Red even easier
  • Front loading feature = easy loading and unloading
  • Internal load straps = holds the board in place for comfortable carrying
  • Padded backpack straps = Super comfortable
  • Waist strap = ensures the bag stays in the optimum position for carrying
  • Side grasp handles = pick the bag up anyway you want
  • Address window = easily identify where your board needs to be returned if lost
  • Double stitched seams = bonded nylon sail making thread –  ultimate durability
  • Coil zip = no snag or erosion

The Red Paddle Co Explorer is an amazing destination paddle board. Designed to be paddled by those who want to know what is around the next bend in the river.No need to leave cars at each end of your trip, just jump on a train, bus or taxi to get home.The new carry bag is so comfortable you could even walk home.

Multiple cargo tie-down sections allow for a large quantity of gear to be carried on the nose and tail.The Explorer is also an amazing platform for fishing with loads of space on the deck to stash the catch of the day.

The 150mm thickness makes for high buoyancy and superb stiffness.

The 12’6″ Explorer and all the Race boards utilise a low profile US box fin system. This allows you to put in your favourite flat water fin. The board is supplied with a fin designed to work for all round paddling. These boards generally tend to take less abuse from the rider and therefore we have chosen the US fin system for these boards.

THE 10’6″ RIDE

The Red Paddle Co Ten Six is the single most popular inflatable SUP board in the world. Heralded as a classic in all four corners of the world. Designed to match the requirements of the all round rider, it will float and glide easily on flat water, while still riding smoothly and predictably in surf.

While some inflatable boards flex uncontrollably in the surf we know how to build just the right amount of curve into the plan shape to create a stiff board. The 10’6″ is 120mm/4.72″ thick. This increases stiffness while not affecting the ride and performance of this iconic board. The Ten Six holds firm and allows you to pick your line across even the smallest of waves.

Fin placement and rocker lines are the key ingredients that turn our boards from being ordinary into something that you want to ride again and again.

The 11’ Sport fits perfectly between the Ride and 12’6” Shapes. Faster to paddle than the Rides and quicker to inflate than the 12’6” boards.The Sport is the perfect fast cruiser for those paddlers looking for a board that can get them around the bay or up the river with speed and glide but can still pick up a small wave.

120mm/4.72” thick and with RSS make this a super rigid board. The 30” width makes it a stable board for all paddlers.

The striking deck pad and colour ways make it a great looking board. Most people don’t even realise it is inflatable when they see it.

INCREDIBLY STIFF. BY DESIGN.

By looking at how and where a board flexes we have developed and patented the Rocker Stiffening System (RSS) to increase rigidity. It works by inserting stiffening battens along the rails of the board. The battens then work against the downward force of the rider to produce a stiffer board by preventing flex – similar to how a stringer works on a hard board. The stiffening strips are removable for easy board rolling and can be stored in the carry bag for transportation to and from the water.

TUNE-ABILITY. YOUR CHOICE.

The 11’0″ Sport utilises a low profile US box fin system. This allows you to put in your favourite flat water fin. The board is supplied with a fin designed to work for all round paddling.  

FASTER THAN YOU THOUGHT POSSIBLE.

The Race is a fantastic board that will amaze you.The rocker line is designed to give fast glide and ride. The single nose fin helps tracking while the centre fin at the rear gives the right amount of grip without adding drag.

This board allows everyone to experience the speed of longer boards without needing the space to store one.

The Race comes fitted with our RSS system adding even more stiffness to this already stiff shape.

THICKNESS. REDEFINED.

The 12’6″ Race is 150mm thick. This Thickness is perfect for flat water paddling. It gives great stiffness and means the board floats high to reduce drag in racing conditions. Add the RSS system to the Race board and you have the stiffest board.

TUNE-ABILITY. YOUR CHOICE.

The Red Race utilises a low profile US box fin system. This allows you to put in your favourite flat water fin. The board is supplied with a fin designed to work for straight line control. The Race also has a nose runner fin that keeps the board tracking straight while not increasing drag. 

The 10’8” Ride

Perfect for bigger riders or the family paddler who wants to carry passengers. Super-stable, the 10’8” Ride is an easy ride.

The 10’8” Ride is 120mm thick.This increases stiffness while not affecting the ride and performance of these iconic boards.The 120mm thickness means that the rider can obtain greater stiffness at lower pressure.The 120mm board is more than 40% stiffer than a standard 100mm board at the same pressure.

The combination of overall width plus the wide tail creates an unbelievably stable platform making the 10’8” Ride a fantastic all-rounder.
