Go big or go home with our largest board. Everyone can get involved with this giant inflatable SUP.
Our MSL fusion technology really comes into it’s own with this giant multi-person board that remains light and easy to transport in its own, specially designed bag. At 17’0 long and 60″ wide, the Ride XL is designed to carry not one, but a large group of riders (and even pets if you want). As many as eight people can fit on this super-sized board and paddling as a group is fun, sociable and great exercise.
Technically, the XL ride is an extension of its sister Ride boards, with a wide deck and tail to make it nice and stable – even when you have a full crew on it. It also has multiple valves so a group of people can inflate it at the same time, and multiple grab handles so they can carry it together. There is plenty of space to take a whole heap of kit with you on the main deck pad or up front using the cargo tie down points. Fitted with our indestructible iFin system means you don’t have to worry about damage or running it up the beach after surfing the wave of your life!!
Timeless design: The Red Paddle Co iconic design has been updated for 2021 with a more streamlined look and feel. The extended Red embossed deck pad now reaches right down to the tail, wraps closer to the rails, and offers superior comfort and grip. The diamond-cut rear provides extra stability for performing step back turns, or for riding in bigger waves.
Ergonomic tubular handles on all boards to give a cushioned, comfy grip when carrying your board.

TEC AIR: PIONEERING PADDLE BOARD DESIGN
At Red Paddle Co, we sweat the small stuff. We’re dedicated to providing you with quality, and that’s why we’re the only inflatable SUP brand that makes boards in its own private facility. We use innovative materials and manufacturing techniques to produce superior-quality products you won’t find anywhere else.
Unlike other paddle board companies out there, we never compromise on quality and innovation. We’ve taken standard inflatable technology and redesigned almost every aspect of it to deliver a truly outstanding board.
Our products are of the highest quality, offering safety and durability that you simply won’t find elsewhere. Before any of our board designs go into production, we carry out extensive research and testing to make sure your board performs when you need it to most (we even ran over one of our boards with a tractor…it was fine.) It then takes us 72 hours to make each individual board – that’s ten times longer than the industry average. This whole process is know as Tec Air and is how we refine and develop our boards at every stage of production. By focussing in on the key areas of the production process we have been able to identify ways we can improve the end result. Whether it be detailing exactly where and how the layers are bonded or how the rocker curve is applied to the board, no area of the design process is ignored.
It’s worth knowing that the key areas of construction are inside the board, two while any two boards might look the same…they can be world’s apart in how they’re constructed. Our attention to detail on the inside ensures the best experience on the outside.
MSL: THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE DETAIL
Our exclusively-owned MSL Fusion technology provides unrivalled stiffness, weight-saving stability and a superb cosmetic finish. Together, with our patented RSS stiffening system, we make the most durable inflatable boards on the market.
MSL is recognised as the industry’s leading construction process and is exclusive to Red Paddle Co, here’s why…
A SUPERB COSMETIC FINISH – All Red Paddle Co boards have an industry-leading cosmetic finish. No wrinkles or blemishes. The boards look cleaner and smoother and even feel better to the touch.
WEIGHT-SAVING BUT STABLE – All Red Paddle Co boards are up to 2kgs lighter than our previous double layer construction. But very importantly they are not too light. If a board is ultra-light it is more affected by wind and current while on the water. MSL boards have a reassuring lightweight feel.
STIFF AT LOWER PRESSURES – Due to the Torsion Stiffness effect all Red Paddle Co boards are stiffer at lower pressures compared to other products on the market. We recommend a pressure of between 16-22psi. Less pumping and more paddling.
ENHANCED DURABILITY – The multiple-layer coating of Red Paddle Co boards is tough and durable. With our third generation of MSL material now in use, our boards are more durable than ever.
8" Coiled Leash
When heading out on the water it is important to always securely attach the board to you using a safe and reliable leash. When windsurfing we recommend always wearing a PFD/Buoyancy aid without the 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.
All boards in the Ride range are now integrated with two super durable, flexible iFins, making the boards straighter and faster to paddle than a three fin set-up. The iFins also provide increased agility and performance in the surf and make the board easier to pack down into its bag. No need for tools, spares or replacements, the iFins can take a beating and are super easy to reshape if they get bent.
Every Red Paddle Co board comes with a handy little repair kit including some essential replacement parts and tools should you ever need them, plus a super handy water -resistant phone case to keep your phone dry during your adventures.
The repair kit includes a patch of MSL material in the appropriate colour for the front and back of your board, (150mm x 150 mm), a valve tool which can also be used to scrape off glue when repairing punctures and instructions, all stored in a waterproof can.
In the unlikely event that you need to clean or replace the valve, this can be easily done using the valve removal tool included in this kit. Check out this video below for step by step instructions on how to do this.
The Ezee pump has one larger cylinder for an ezee way to inflate your board. Pump volume into your board quicker with the Ezze pump. The ergonomic wide handles and feet offer ease of use and increased stability. Increased chamber diameter makes it easier to get volume into the board.
