Ten years in the making, our mission to make paddle boarding even more accessible has been realised. Our revolutionary 9’6” Compact (patent-pending) is a step forward in what an inflatable board can be – a full-sized SUP which folds down to half the size of a conventional inflatable paddle board.
Based on our award-winning, all-round Ride 10’6″ MSL, the 9’6” Compact is 32”/813mm wide and 4.7”/120mm thick and provides the perfect blend of stability and manoeuvrability allowing you to make the most of any location and any conditions! Weighing in at just 8kg (board-only) and supporting riders up to 95kg/209lbs, it has never been easier to fold, roll and go on your next SUP adventure.
Read the full story of why we created the 9’6″ Compact…
To achieve this completely new compact board we developed state-of-the-art trademarked technology, exclusive to the 9’6″ Compact. At the core of the board is a unique weaving process that creates an extra-high-resolution thread matrix. When combined with a super-strong but malleable outer layer and advanced quad stringer system – the result is a super-stiff board that rolls up to an ultra-small pack size.
THE 9’6” COMPACT PACKAGE INCLUDES THE BOARD, BACKPACK, FIVE-PIECE PADDLE, TITAN PUMP AND LEASH.
(Packed weight is approximately 12.7kg)

The most engineered SUP backpack on the planet – The COMPACT backpack has unique levels of adjustability and comfort, plus incredible shoulder and back support.
Featuring 53% less downforce on the carrier’s lower back, you can travel for longer in comfort.
With customisable lumbar support and adjustable height features, it is suitable for almost any size of paddler making it a pleasure to carry whether you are on a short walk to the water or off on an epic adventure.
The world’s first purpose built double chamber SUP pump – designed to halve the amount of time and effort it takes to inflate you board.
It comes with almost every board in the Red Paddle Co Range. Constant innovation has meant we have tested the absolute boundaries of inflation technology and as such are confident there is nothing quite like the Titan pump.
The Dual Cylinder system combined with the Hi Flo handle allows you to put volume into your board faster and reduces the effort required to reach a higher pressure.
A revolution in pumping technology! It now comes with attachments to enable you to inflate anything from boards, to kites, airbeds and boats!
The newly designed Click Fins are only available with the Compact 9’6.
They use a simple click fin system making it easy to connect in place and include secondary screw for added security.
The two off set fin boxes themselves are also compatible with standard FCS fins, so you can customise the feel of your board on the water.
The world’s first 5-piece paddle for ultimate transportability.
Our new anti-twist adjustment system with 45 degree cut push-pin technology has resulted in our most compact paddle yet. Made of high-modulus carbon for extra rigidity, with a durable pure nylon blade.
The Nylon blade of the paddle is laser etched, with no printing, chemicals or transfers and produced with a single pure material.
Meaning the design will stay on forever, resulting in no aesthetic implications.
Leashes Save Lives.
When heading out on the water it is important to always securely attach the board to you using a safe and reliable leash.
8′ Coiled Touring Leash- Reduces drag in the water and offers a more compact leash option.
Safety Note: If paddling in river currents we advise wearing only a Personal Floatation Device or a waist leash to avoid snagging on obstacles and debris.
