The smallest of the Ride family is the 9’8” Ride, an inflatable SUP designed for all-round usage for lighter riders.
You’ll get the best out of it if you’re under 70kg/155lb, but that doesn’t exclude heavier riders. In fact, for heavier riders, the 9’8” makes a great surf shape. Key to the 9’8″ Ride’s versatility are its dimensions. It’s 787mm/31” wide and 100mm/3.93” thick, which makes it a stable but manoeuvrable 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.
10" Straight 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.
10′ Straight Leash- Perfect for ocean paddleboarding, limits the board from recalling when you are in the water.
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.
Once you add your chosen board to your basket, you’ll be offered a choice of paddles to complete your perfect package.
Our paddles are made using three different raw materials alloy, hybrid (carbon and glass fibre) or high-end carbon. The alloy paddles are family friendly and ideal for an entry level paddler. The hybrid (carbon and glass fibre) paddles are perfect for any paddlers looking for a lighter shaft to increase power output and save energy. Carbon paddles are the lightest, stiffest and fastest of all, coming with varying grades to suit.
The paddle is your engine and allows you to get the most from each and every outing on the water. No matter what your budget, style or preference – there is a paddle for everyone and it’s important to consider which one you choose as it will make a big difference on performance.
Your paddle should be 6” taller than you so we have two adjuster types to make this easy for you. LeverLock’s patented technology allows you to make adjustments on the fly with one hand for maximum flexibility. The Camlock offers unrivalled grip to remove any movement or free play.
ALL TERRAIN BACKPACK
Take your SUP wherever you go with Red Paddle Co’s backpack. At Red Paddle Co we pride ourselves on creating an authentic paddling experience. 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.
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 furthest corners of the Earth as easy as possible.
It’s made using toughened materials that can cope with sun, sea, sand and abuse. It even has a foil lining to ensure your board stays cool in extreme temperatures.
When you’re not out exploring, it serves as the perfect storage unit too.
The All-Terrain backpack comes as standard with all single rider boards.
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.
TITAN II PUMP
The Titan II Pump is the world’s first purpose-built, double chamber SUP pump. It’s designed to cut the amount of time and effort it takes to inflate your board by half. Constant innovation has led to us testing the absolute boundaries of inflation technology and as such, we’re confident that there’s nothing quite like the Titan II pump on the market.
The Dual Cylinder system, combined with the Hi Flo handle means you are in complete control of the energy used to inflate your board. It puts the volume into your board faster and reduces the effort required to reach a higher pressure.
