The Red Paddle Co RSS batten system is fitted to the 3.93″ thick 9’2″ Surf Star, 9’6″ All Water and 10′ Surfer boards and the 5.9″ thick 12’6″ Race, 12’6″ Elite Race and 14′ Elite Race boards. This is a quick guide on the best way to insert your RSS battens into the pockets/sleeves along the board’s rails, to make your board the stiffest inflatable on the market! Red Paddle Co RSS battens can improve the stiffness of your inflatable SUP board by 30-50%.
Inserting the RSS battens
Removing the RSS battens
To remove the battens, first deflate the board so most of the pressure has been released then.
Grab the red rope attached to the end of the RSS batten and standing near the back of the board, pull the RSS batten towards you whilst pushing down on the pocket to keep the batten flat. Depending on how flat the board is, you may not need to push down on the pocket.
Keep pulling the batten out of the pocket, while keeping it straight, until it is completely removed. Don’t forget to put it back into the board bag for the next session!
