Who are Red Paddle Co?

Performance is at the heart of what they do. Red Paddle Co create boards that perform for everybody, regardless of age or ability. Red want to get as many people out on the water as they can, in the safest and most reliable way.

There’s literally nothing quite like a Red Paddle Co board. Nobody sweats over the small stuff as much as they do. They don’t simply make cookie-cutter boards and slap a logo on it. In fact, they’re the only paddle boarding company that operates from its own private facility.

Every board they create is taken on a journey from raw material, all the way through to production. Their robust quality control system means that they don’t put out boards until they’re entirely satisfied with how they look, feel and perform and that’s why they have a 0.02% return rate.

John Hibbard, co-founder and CEO, saw first-hand, how windsurfing went through its various guises to become a competitive extreme sport. He felt that it had forgotten those who simply wanted to have fun. For him, and us at Green Water Sports, that’s what paddle boarding offered – a relaxing and sociable way to enjoy the outdoors.

Now, more than a decade on, Red Paddle Co is a brilliant community of passionate paddle boarders from all over the world. Their aim is to make the very best products and to support the paddle boarding community in any way they can.

In their fourteenth year of paddle board design and development, the new 2022 Red Paddle Co range enables you to get out exploring and pushing at the boundaries of adventuring.

Let’s take a look at the whole range of Red Paddle Co inflatable boards with all the important features in our comparison charts below. We compare the Red Paddle Co Ride inflatable paddle boards. We table the main specifications to easily compare the Red Paddle Co Voyager line, Red Paddle Co Compact boards, Red Paddle Co Elite race boards and the Red Paddle Co specialty boards.
