2023 red paddle co all round paddle boards best inflatable sups

River session on the Red Paddle Co 10′ Surfer

A few weeks back, I headed down to our local river mouth to go for a stand up paddle on the 10′ Surfer by Red Paddle Co. I took the board for a little lunchtime cruise.

I normally ride the 10’6″ Ride as I’m a taller/heavier kind of guy but I wanted to check out the 10′ Surfer as an all round option for travelling. I currently have a very short 8’5″ stand up surfing board, a 10’6″ Ride and a 12’6″ Race inflatable SUP. I was checking out the 10′ Surfer to see if it’d be a good board to use in the surf and on the flats when I travel. I did a full review of the Red Paddle Co 10′ Surfer here and, to sum up in just a few words, it did the job I was hoping it would.

Take a look at the shots of me riding the river. It had rained leading up to the shoot, hence the not terribly inviting muddy brown water. I did not fall in! The 10′ Surfer is currently on sale at the moment and ships with a free Epic Gear 3 piece paddle.
