Surfing the new 9’8″ Ride inflatable SUP by Red Paddle Co

Frankie Rioli takes us for a very mellow (if wobbly GoPro) paddle and surf session on the new for 2015 Red Paddle Co 9’8″ Ride inflatable paddle board.

The 9’8″ Ride is an evolution of two boards from the 2014 range. The 10′ Surfer and the 9’6″ All Water. Combining the surfey tail of the 10′ and the wide and stable nose of the All Water, the 9’8″ has proven to be a very popular model for those looking to ride waves and cruise or smaller paddlers who don’t need the 10’6″ or 10’8″.

Find out more about the 9’8″ Ride here in our quick review or on the product page.
