BACKING TRACK

Take your SUP wherever you go with Red Paddle Co’s backpack

We bang on about this a bit, but there’s no better way to explore your world than with an inflatable SUP – bag it up, throw it on your back and you’re free to find adventure.

At Red Paddle Co, we pride ourselves on creating an authentic paddling experience, which means all of our kit has to perform to an exceptional standard – whether that’s on the water, or when you’re travelling and transporting your board, paddle and pump with you.

No bag existed that met our demands – so we created our own. Our solution is the world’s best inflatable SUP bag, an innovative backpack designed to make taking your board to the farthest corners of the Earth as easy as possible. It’s made using toughened materials that can cope with sun, sea and sand (and baggage handlers), and all Red Paddle Co boards come with one. When you’re not out exploring, it serves as the perfect storage unit, too.
