Have a look at the chart, see which boards fit you and your paddling style, then let’s take a look at the model range starting with the smallest SUP board:

Red Paddle Co 2015 9’2″ Surf Star

The name says it all – the 2015 Nine Two Surf Star inflatable SUP takes everything Red Paddle Co have learnt from previous years and applied it to create a progressive surfing outline, which gives this board the best possible surfing performance they have ever produced. Stable yet manoeuvrable, the 9’2″ Surf Star inflatable SUP is the only choice for those looking for the ultimate travel surf stand up paddle board.


Red Paddle Co 2015 9’4″ Snapper

Why should the adults have all the fun? The Nine Four Snapper inflatable stand up paddle board by Red Paddle Co allows the younger generation a board to call their own. The 9’4″ Snapper was designed to deliver top quality performance for young riders, or smaller adults, up to 135lbs/60kgs. It is equally at home paddling down the river or catching a swell on the sand bar.


Red Paddle Co 2015 9’6″ Flow

The Nine Six Flow inflatable SUP from Red Paddle Co is a new shape for 2015. Incredibly stable yet awesomely maneuverable, the Flow is for rivers & white water. In the world of bumping and grinding rapids and logs, the Flow offers extreme durability, with amazing performance.

At 150mm or 5.9 inches thick, the high sides allow it to break in and out of the river flow while its pronounced rocker means it rides over the bumps exceptionally well. Fitted with multiple grab handles for safety and control. Quad fin set-up so you don’t get the ‘double-bump’ when riding over rocks.


Red Paddle Co 2015 9’8″ Ride

The new Red Paddle Co Nine Eight Ride inflatable SUP takes the best features of the 9’6 All Water and the 10′ Surfer and delivers a great surfing shape and perfect all round board. The 9’8 is 100mm thick for increased performance and maneuverability but is fitted with the Rocker Stiffening System (RSS battens) to ensure rigidity is not compromised.

They have designed this board to work in every condition, from cruising up the river to catching waves quickly and easily.


Red Paddle Co 2015 10’6″ Ride

The Ten Six from Red Paddle Co is the single most popular inflatable stand up paddle board in the world, heralded as a classic in all corners of the world. For 2015 it’s the same great board, with great performance and updated graphics. Designed to meet the requirements of the all round rider, it will float and glide easily on flat water, while still riding smoothly and predictably in surf.

A fantastic board for all round paddling!


Red Paddle Co 2015 10’8″ Ride

The Ten Eight Ride inflatable SUP from Red Paddle Co is formerly known as the Mega, which forged the way for wide inflatable stand up paddle boards. Now for 2015, it’s the same great board but part of the Ride family. Before Red Paddle Co made the Mega, it was impossible to make boards over 32” wide. The new 10’8″ Ride is the perfect board for the bigger rider (220lbs+), SUP workouts or yoga, and the family stand up paddler. Do your workout or yoga. Get the kids on board. Get the dog or the cooler on board. Get everyone on board!

The new 10’8″ Ride is mega!


Red Paddle Co 2015 10’8″ Ride Windsurf

The Ten Eight Ride from Red Paddle Co is formerly known as the Mega, which forged the way for wide inflatable stand up paddle boards. Now for 2015, it’s the same great board but part of the Ride family. Before Red Paddle Co made the Mega, it was impossible to make boards over 32” wide. The new 10’8″ Ride is the perfect board for the bigger rider (220lbs+), SUP workouts or yoga, and the family stand up paddler.

In this, the Windsurf model of the 10’8″ Ride, it comes ready with a mast base/sail screw which is built into the structure of the board.


Red Paddle Co 2015 11′ Sport

The Eleven Sport inflatable stand up paddle board by Red Paddle Co is an amazing all-round cruising board. Designed for a rider wanting good speed and glide to explore waterways with ease, yet enough versatility to catch the odd wave. Faster to paddle and much more racy-feeling than the Rides but more versatile and quicker to inflate than the 12’6″ Explorer or Race boards.


Red Paddle Co 2015 12’6″ Explorer

The Twelve Six Explorer by Red Paddle Co is an amazing destination, exploring and cruising inflatable SUP. Designed to be paddled by those who want to know what is around the next bend in the river or in the next bay. No need to leave cars at each end of your paddling trip, just jump on a train, bus, or take taxi to get home.

One of the more popular boards in the model range – the ultimate SUP cruiser.


Red Paddle Co 2015 10’6″ Max Race

The Ten Six Max Race takes inspiration from the Red Paddle Co Elite and Race boards. It has been designed for speed and close competition in the youth racing class. The shorter length means it’s manageable both on and off the water and the 24” width makes it stable enough while still super quick in a straight line.


Red Paddle Co 2015 12’6″ Race

The 2015 Red Paddle Co Twelve Six Race inflatable stand up paddle board will amaze you, this board means business. It went on a diet and lost 2″ at the waist, for an even faster 28″ width. The ideal race board for the first timer, heavier rider or anyone wanting high speeds with an easy ride. A stripped down racing thoroughbred, weight is saved by having deck grip in only the most essential areas. The rocker line is designed to give fast glide and ride, while the single nose fin helps tracking. The centre fin gives just the right amount of grip without adding drag.


Red Paddle Co 2015 12’6″ Elite

The 2015 Twelve Six Elite stand up paddle board by Red Paddle Co is the next stage in evolution from the very popular and race winning 2014 12’6″ Elite and the standard 12’6″ Race. This board is not for the feint hearted or inexperienced paddler as the 26″ width makes this the ultimate board for racers looking for the best performance with the ability to rock up and race anywhere in the world with a minimum of fuss. It’s faster than you thought you could ever be!

The most high performance inflatable 12’6″ SUP raceboard in the world, it leads the way in stiffness, shape, consistency and speed.


Red Paddle Co 2015 14′ elite

The 2015 Fourteen Elite inflatable stand up paddle board by Red Paddle Co is the next level up in your racing career and builds on the success of the popular 2014 model and the 12’6″ Elite and 12’6″ Race. 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.

Faster than you thought possible!

Yeh, we know we skipped the new 2015 10’8″ Ride Active. Specifications for the board are the same as the 10’8″ Ride, but it features a bright and colourful full EVA deck providing plenty of space for SUP Yoga or similar activities. We hope to have the 10’8″ Ride Active available soon.
