The 2017 Red Paddle Co 9'8″ Ride inflatable paddle board is the smallest of the Ride family, a board designed for all-round usage for lighter riders.

You’ll get the best out of it if you’re under 175lbs/80 kg, but that doesn’t exclude heavier riders. In fact, for heavier riders, the 9’8” Ride makes a great surf shape. Key to the Ride’s versatility are its dimensions. It’s 31” wide and 3.93” thick, which makes it a stable but manoeuvrable board.

Who's it for? Lighter riders who need a versatile board.

It’s a great board for beginners, but because it’s been stiffened with our Rocker Stiffening System (RSS battens), it delivers a fantastic experience for more advanced riders, too. The 2017 Red Paddle Co 9’8” Ride also has cargo tie-downs on the front for a dry bag. Read our 2015 model quick review.

What’s new for 2017?

  • As with all 2017 Red Paddle Co inflatable paddle boards, the 9’8″ Ride features the improved MSL fusion composite and airtight coating construction process for a lighter and stiffer board
  • Nose mounted Ram Mount for camera and accessories
  • Super traction, non-slip diamond cut EVA deck pad towards the tail
  • RSS Battens now feature special cord and velcro tab to hold them in place
  • Foil lined bag to protect board from extreme temperatures

What is MSL? Monocoque Structural Laminate (MSL) fusion composite and airtight coating is a new construction process introduced in 2016. MSL involves fusing the second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at the raw material stage, removing hand gluing errors. The high-tech industrial process also saves up to 5 lbs of weight per board and makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures.

The Rocker Stiffening System (RSS) system works so well on a board of this length to give unrivalled stiffness. The RSS is designed to increase rigidity by 30-50%. It works by inserting battens along the rails of the board. While some inflatable boards flex in the water, Red Paddle Co’s 15-25 PSI super-stiff, double layer construction holds firm and allows you to paddle with confidence.

Other features:

  • The Titan Pump – a revolutionary dual chamber inflatable paddle board pump that will inflate your board in half the time with half the effort, and still pump to 25PSI easily
  • MSL fusion composite and airtight coating
  • High-grade, double-thread internal high density drop stitching which can handle up to 25PSI
  • Double layer fusion construction featuring a “board within a board”. This adds “bomb-proof-ness,” massive strength, stiffness, consistent shape and mega durability
  • Side rails with four layers of taping – maintains the boards shape, stiffness and air tight qualities. Four times thicker than many inflatable paddle boards
  • Features the RSS System
  • Special “air block” membrane eliminates air leakage
  • Three tracking iFins for the best mix of directional stability and control
  • Tail mounted d-ring for leash
  • Integrated nose d-ring and Ram Mount for camera and accessories
  • Super traction, non-slip EVA deck pad in “crocodile skin” and diamond cut textures
  • Tail stomp pad for control in the surf
  • Front cargo net for carrying gear with stainless d-rings
  • Low profile handle so no risk of injury
  • Central carry handle, more comfortable than before
  • Built using Tec Air specification, with new valves, improved seals, cap and stronger threads


  • Length: 9’8″
  • Width: 31″
  • Thickness: 100mm, 3.93 inches
  • Volume: 196 liters
  • Weight: 19 lbs board only, 28 lbs with backpack and pump
  • Max payload: 180 lbs/82 kg for all-round and up to 210 lbs/95 kg for surfing
  • Warranty: 1 year

What’s in the box? The Nine Eight Ride comes complete with an awesome wheeled backpack, a repair kit, cell phone case and the Red Paddle Co Titan pump, which makes inflation to 15-25psi really easy, leaving you more time to paddle.
