2023 starboard best inflatable touring stand up paddle boards

Red Paddle Co 12’6″ Voyager Video Review

In this video, the host, The Optimistic Adventurer, dives into a review of the Red Voyager 12’6″ inflatable paddle board, pointing out its standout design and features. The board has a unique V-hull that boosts stability and helps it glide smoothly through the water. It also has a twin fin system that supports the board and your gear, similar to boat keels, though they add a bit of drag. The board’s top-notch quality, with RSS side battens and multiple D-rings for attaching gear, makes the investment in quality worth it.

The board is surprisingly light and very stable, making it great for both touring and general use. He take’s it out along the coastline and loves how maneuverable and responsive it is, even in tight spots. By the end of the test, he’s thoroughly impressed, calling it the most stable touring board he’s ever used. Plus, the compact pack-down size is a nice bonus for this Red Paddle Co board.
