2018 red paddle co - 2018 range of inflatable SUP paddle board

With the phenomenal success of their inflatable stand up paddling race board, the 12’6″ Race, Red Paddle Co have just introduced 2 Elite Race boards to further build the reputation of inflatable stand up paddle boards and in particular, racing boards as viable and so much more convenient options for the keen paddler and travelling SUP racer.

The Elite boards come in the familiar 12’6″ size but at a speedy 26″ wide and a 14′ x 26″ gliding and speed demon. In recent stand up paddle race events, both Elite Race boards have outperformed many regular race boards and only going down to full carbon race boards.

Naturally, both boards feature the best technology Red Paddle Co has to offer. Using the patented RSS Rocker Stiffening System and the TEC-AIR process.

“This board is not for the feint hearted or inexperienced as the 26″ width make this an ultimate board for pure racers looking for the best performance with the ability to rock up and race anywhere in the world with minimum fuss.

On the boards first outing at the largest ever SUP race in the UK the board finished first 12’6″ Inflatable, 2nd inflatable overall and 5th overall in the 12’6″ class in a field which included ISA World Champion Jamie Mitchell and a whole host of other international and national riders among the 100 participants.”

“The 14′ length ensures the ultimate glide and speed with the 26″ width making this even more applicable. The ultimate board for pure racers looking for the best performance, whilst maintaining the ability to rock up and race anywhere in the world with minimum fuss.

On the boards first outing at the largest ever SUP race in the UK, the board finished first overall inflatable and first 14′ inflatable and 13th in the overall classification proving it can compete against full carbon race boards in a field which included ISA World Champion Jamie Mitchell and a whole host of other international and national riders among the 100 participants.”
