Red Paddle Co launched its updated fleet of inflatable SUPs this week and we’ve picked out some of our favourites from the line-up. Now that’s what’s SUP!
Apologies for the groan-inducing SUP word-play, but the new range of boards are looking SUPer cool.
Red Paddle Co has been producing inflatable paddleboards for over a decade and they pride themselves on building high-quality boards in their own private facility.
We’ve peeked behind the curtain at their new range and they’re looking pretty darn fresh.
New Features for 2021
Red Paddle Co’s new designs feature a more streamlined look and feel, boasting retro stripes that extend down the side of the rail and pinstripe details on the underside of the board forming a surf-style graphic.
Their Voyager touring boards are now rocking a new V-Hull, designed to break the surface tension of the water, making it easier and faster to paddle. They also have a new twin fin set-up that means you can paddle in shallower waters, opening up a wider variety of waterways.
The Sport range of boards now features the Speed Tail, delivering enhanced speed and manoeuvrability. Every board in the Ride range is now integrated with two super durable, flexible iFins that make the boards straighter and faster to paddle. The iFins also provide increased agility and performance in the surf and make the boards easier to pack down into their bag.
All Red Paddle Co boards have an updated cargo bungee system to keep your gear safely strapped to the board, while new ergonomic tubular handles make carrying your board easier and more comfortable.
Our Favourite Boards from the New Range
‘We have seen a huge increase in paddler numbers this year and we are excited to help them experience all that SUP has to offer in the years to come.’
– Red Paddle Co co-founder and CEO, John Hibbard.
All boards in the 2021 range now come with an extended five-year warranty when registered on the brand’s website. As Co-Founder John Hibbard puts it, ‘we stand behind our boards as much as we stand on them’. This fantastic offer blows the industry-standard 12-month warranty out of the water and further cements Red Paddle Co as the number one premium inflatable SUP brand.
