2019 Red Paddle Co Inflatable Paddle Board SUP Lineup

We recently received details on Red Paddle Company’s new inflatable SUP lineup being introduced for 2019.

Compact on the water.

Red Paddle Co inflatable boards are well-known throughout the world for their ruggedness, innovation and performance. Over the past 10 years, Red Paddle Co has been the industry leader, introducing the game-changing Tital dual action pump, Monocoque Structural Laminate (MSL) fusion material technology, Rocker Side Stiffening (RSS) system and the Forward Flex Control (FFC) nose rod on the racing boards.

(AirKayaks note: All in-stock 2018/2019 Red Paddle Co boards are currently on sale at 15% off through January 15th at AirKayaks)

Over the years, Red Paddle racked up numerous awards throughout the product line, including Gear of the Year from Outside, Men’s Journal and Backpacker magazines.

2018 heralded the 10 year anniversary of the brand, commemorated with the introduction of the Ride 10’6″ Limited Edition model.

Revolutionary new Compact inflatable SUP from Red Paddle Co

Red Paddle Co launched the 2019 season by unveiling the Compact 9’6″ inflatable SUP package, a revolutionary new board that rolls up to half the size of a standard inflatable paddle board.

Rolling up the compact

Based on the popular Red Paddle Co Ride 10’6″, the 9’6″ Compact features a 32″ width with 4.75 inch thickness, yet packs down to half the size of a conventional Red board. Red Paddle accomplished this through a series of material breakthroughs and innovative design, starting from the ground-up and re-engineering each part. Very simply, by redesigning the board layout, adding quad stringers as well as technological advances in base materials, the Compact 9’6″ can be folded in half and rolled up tightly without sacrificing performance, rigidity or durability.

For more information on the new Compact, read our article Red Paddle Co’s Ultra-Packable Compact 9’6″ Inflatable SUP Package.
