  • Red Paddle Co Inflatable SUP Schrader Valve Adaptor

    $35.00

Red Paddle Co Inflatable SUP Schrader Valve Adaptor

Use your compressor or tire pump to easily reach 20 PSI! The Red Paddle Co inflatable stand up board valve adapter will allow you to connect any standard electric pump, foot pump or compressor to the schrader valve fitting, the standard valve for car and bicycle tires. It twists into the Halkey-Roberts style inflatable SUP valve and works on the majority of inflatable stand up boards. It is also suitable for boats and kayaks which also use the Halkey-Roberts valve for inflation.

Be very careful not to over inflate your board or craft, and check the board’s pressure frequently. We can recommend the K-Pump Kwik Check Standard Pressure Gauge or the K-Pump Kwik Check Back Mount Pressure Gauge for this.

Fitting seamlessly onto your board and packed full of features, this dry bag will enable you to make every paddle an adventure.

Its 22 liters capacity means you can take a whole range of gear with you which can be easily accessed on land or on the water.


  • Onyx M-16 Belt Pack Inflatable Life Jacket (PFD)

    $89.00

Onyx M-16 Belt Pack Inflatable Life Jacket (PFD)

The Onyx M-16 Belt Pack Manual Inflatable Life Jacket is a US Coast Guard Approved Type V Life Jacket and Personal Flotation Device (PFD) with Type III Performance. The Onyx M-16 inflatable PFD is an ideal and sometimes necessary (ie. legally required) addition to your stand up paddle boarding package. The life jacket is inflated when you pull the “jerk to inflate” yellow handle. This opens the CO2 cartridge and inflates the PFD. Comes with one cartridge which is single use and needs to be rearmed with new cartridge after each inflation.

Unique design for stand up paddle boarding! Styled to look like a belt pack (bum bag, waist bag, fanny pack) the Onyx M-16 is comfortable and stays out of the way until needed. While some laws only require a PFD device strapped on board, the Onyx M-16 inflatable life jacket, is attached to you and ready to go in the event of an emergency.

The most effective life jackets are the ones you want to wear.


  • Red Paddle Co Titan Pump

    $139.00

Red Paddle Co Titan Pump

This Red Paddle Co Titan Pump is version 2.0 of the revolutionary inflatable SUP pump, it effectively halves inflation time and has made all other hand pump alternatives seem pointless.

The Titan Pump features two chambers, one larger volume cylinder (low pressure) and one lower volume cylinder (high pressure). Think of it as a combination of the regular Ezee and the Ezee HP side by side.

You start with both cylinders pumping huge amounts of air into the board, then at about 10-12PSI, you flip a switch and it pumps through the high pressure side only. You’re pumping double the amount of air into the board than usual, and can still finish it off with high pressure. Read more about the Titan Pump here and here.

A true game changer!
