Stand-up paddleboarding is for everybody, not just the grown-ups, which
is why we make the 9’4” Snapper, a SUP for kids up to 60kg/132lb.
It’s shorter and narrower than, say, the Ride family, which makes it easier for young riders to manoeuvre, whether on a river or catching the swell off a sandbar. We’ve given it a peppy design so it’s a board kids can call their own, but underneath it’s got all the quality signifiers you’d expect of a Red Paddle Co board: it’s made using the same TecAir process as the rest of our range; passes through the same quality control checks; and comes in the same innovative backpack. In other words, it offers the authentic Red Paddle Co experience, just packaged for the next generation of paddlers
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating, MSL involves fusing a 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 almost 2kg in weight and makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures.
For 2017, we’ve added a special screw thread to all of our boards that is compatible with RAM MOUNTS products, the world leading accessory bracket manufacturer. Enabling you to securely attach a range of accessories, from GPS devices and cameras to fishing rods and cup holders.Find your nearest retailer

THE FUTURE IS FUSION
The most innovative inflatable SUPs in the world – Red Paddle Co’s high-performance inflatable SUPs are full of innovation – our mantra is to design and manufacture high-quality boards with zero compromise. This year, we’re introducing MSL fusion technology, which stands for Monocoque Structural Laminate. This involves an industrial process that fuses the second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at raw material stage. MSL reduces hand-gluing errors and the amount of glue we use, which saves 2kg in weight. It also delivers greater stiffness at lower pressures – we recommend inflating our boards to 18-20psi for ultimate performance. Add MSL to our TecAir manufacturing process that makes our boards stiffer, more durable, and better-performing, and our patented RSS stiffening system (see page right), and you have inflatable boards that deliver the world’s most authentic stand-up paddleboard experience.
THE BEST DESIGN. FOR THE BEST PERFORMANCE.
Tec Air is not a product, it’s a process. We looked at how we built boards, and by focusing in on the key areas of the production process, we have been able to refine each process to make the very best boards. All Red Paddle Co boards are built using our Tec Air specification to ensure the best possible build quality. Our strength comes from the inside.
LESS EFFORT. MORE PRESSURE.
Just one inflation is all you need to understand the progress that we’ve made with our new High Pressure (HP) pump. Inflating a board over 15psi is now much, much easier. It’s more comfortable to use, requires less effort and still allows you go from backpack to beach in the shortest time possible.
The 9’4″ Snapper is 100mm thick. This Thickness is perfect for lighter riders. This keeps the centre of effort lower so they are more stable on the water and can manoeuvre the board with ease.
We have tested every system currently available and even developed fin systems of our own to find the best solution. Nothing comes close to our tried and tested iFin system on our allround boards. No tools, replacements or spares are needed for the iFin system.
GET CARRIED AWAY. EFFORTLESSLY.
After covering over 100,000 miles with our boards we had a really good idea of what was needed from the ultimate bag.Our all new bag has the most significant developments yet seen with inflatable board bags. It has integrated wheels that make travelling through airports a pleasure.The hidden back pack system can be stowed when not in use and is super comfy when you need to put the board on your back.The front loading system makes packing and unpacking super simple.The internal straps make sure the board stays put while in transit.This bag truly is the ultimate solution for travel and storage.
