Riding an inflatable paddle board shouldn’t mean you have to compromise on performance, looks or quality. Riding a Red Paddle Co board offers the ultimate in convenience while delivering an authentic experience.
There are lots of different types of paddling, and different types of paddler, too. The good news is there’s a Red Paddle Co board for every rider and every adventure. Here’s our quick guide to making sure you get the right one:
Owning an inflatable board should not mean you have to compromise on performance, looks or quality. Red Paddle Company believes 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.
Red Paddle Co is really proud of the Rocker Stiffening System, or RSS. It’s unique to Red Paddle Co – we designed and patented it to make some of our bigger, expert boards even stiffer to deliver greater performance. It works by slotting two stiffening battens into pockets that are individually laminated onto the side of the board. We’ve proved this makes the board up to 40 per cent stiffer.
The SUP bags were the first to include 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.
Red Paddle Co started in 2008 as a germ of an idea. Paddleboarding was just getting going, and we had this crazy idea that it could be made better with inflatable boards. People thought this was a bit strange. Surely you could never make the boards stiff enough to get the kind of performance you’d expect from a hard board? You’d just end up with a lilo, all bendy in the middle, right? Over time, we’ve dispelled the doubts, and those people have come round. They’ve been quite nice about it, really.
From the beginning they’ve had a two-fold mantra:
They believe riding an inflatable board shouldn’t be a compromise.
They make boards that deliver an authentic paddleboarding experience.
