Red Paddle Co has achieved their goal of creating the world’s most portable SUP surf package with the 8’10 Compact. This board is made possible by their patented MSL PACT Technology, which makes it smaller than any other board in the range – an ambition that founder John Hibbard had been striving for years.

When I look back to the early days of building the brand, I had a lot of people telling me you can’t do it, you shouldn’t do it or just don’t do it. I guess I’m stubborn, but hearing these words just makes me want to do it even more. People told me you couldn’t make a decent inflatable paddle board that surfs and I was adamant that you could, you just had to approach it in the right direction. There are elements to a surfing paddle board that you’ll never be able to put into an inflatable board, but you can go quite a long way towards that.

And we’ve done that in all areas of our products, so it is not just about boards for us, it is the bags, the pumps, it is everything else that we do, and the Compact range epitomises that thinking really well.

It has taken a long time, but we have got to a point where the 8’10” Compact draws on all our experience and every innovation from over the years. We’ve created a board that surfs well and makes travel SUP/Surfing more accessible than ever before. I’m not about to take it Hawaii and take it on 20ft Jaws or anything like that but I can ride a wave on it and make a turn on it, it’s a fun board and a good feeling to see it launch this year.

With superior performance and portability, this board can go anywhere you want to and make sure you have a great time doing it! So don’t miss out on this amazing paddleboard – get your hands on the Red Paddle Co 8’10 Compact today!
