Little gets the adrenaline going like paddleboarding down a furious, foamy river.
The Red Paddle Co 9’6” Flow is designed specifically for riders taking on the rapids. Based on input from experienced white water paddlers, we’ve given it a shape that offers extreme durability and extreme performance. Its high sides allow it to break in and out of the river flow, and it’s got a pronounced rocker so it rides out the bumps.
It’s also got multiple grab handles for safety and control, and a quad-iFin setup that means you don’t get the ‘double bump’ common to three-fin setups when you go over rocks. We’ve made those fins low-profile to avoid hang-ups in shallow sections, and because no two rivers are the same, we’ve designed them so they can be shaped to suit your riding style and the conditions.
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.

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.
LESS PUMPING, MORE PADDLING.
The Dual Cylinder system of the Titan pump combined with the Hi Flo handle means you are in complete control of the time and energy required to inflate your board. It puts the volume into your board faster and reduces the effort required to reach a higher pressure. A revolution in pumping technology!
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.
The 9’6″ Flow is 150mm thick. This Thickness is perfect for white water orientated boards. Its high sides allow it to break in and out of the river flow while it’s pronounced nose rocker means it rides over the bumps exceptionally well.
We have tested every system currently available and even developed fin systems of our own to find the best solution. For the 2017 9’6″ Flow we have gone for a duel fin system so it includes both a quad iFin setup with a US Box glass fin in the middle for better directional ability when on the flat.
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.
