starboard 2020 inflatable sup paddleboards

The time is upon us, Red Paddle Co have just announced their range for 2020. The focus for the 2020 product lineup is on the details, further refinement of each product and the customer experience and value offered over just the physical product purchased.

Most notably of which is the introduction of a 5 year warranty on each board. In 2018, the free 2 year warranty (with product registration) was introduced and for 2020 boards, it has been increased to a free 5 year warranty (to the original owner, with product registration). This is unprecedented in the stand up paddle board industry, but really shows that Red Paddle Co stand by their industry leading Monocoque Structural Laminate (MSL) construction and their TEC Air construction process.

TEC Air is a unique, industry leading, construction process exclusive to Red Paddle Co. It is the term given to their ongoing scrutiny of their inflatable SUP production to ensure they only ever use the best materials, adhesives and components before applying them with absolute precision. Unlike mass produced Fusion or Single Layer boards, Red Paddle Co take absolute pride in their craft with a dedicated in house product design team and private production facility, it takes them 72 hours to build and manufacture each and every Red Paddle Co board. During this time, every board is subject to the industry’s most rigorous quality control process, to deliver unrivalled stiffness, durability and performance.

So then, enough with the marketing speak, and into the product guide. What’s new, what’s changed, what are we excited to paddle?!

2020 Red Paddle Co Product Guide

Red Paddle Co are also proud of the fact that their board construction facility is completely waste free with all materials being reused or recycled, as part of their constant development to ensure we are protecting our planet.

  • 2019 Brand of the Year – SUP Connect
  • 2019 Technology of the Year (MSL PACT) – SUP Connect
