Performance is at the heart of what we do. We create boards that perform for everybody, regardless of age or ability. We want to get as many people out on the water as we can, in the safest and most reliable way.

There’s literally nothing quite like a Red Paddle Co board. Nobody sweats over the small stuff as much as we do. We don’t simply make cookie-cutter boards and slap a logo on it. In fact, we’re the only paddle boarding company that operates from its own private facility.

Every board we create is taken on a journey from raw material, all the way through to production. Our robust quality control system means that we don’t put out boards until we’re entirely satisfied with how they look, feel and perform – and that’s why we have a 0.02% return rate.

John saw first-hand, how windsurfing had went through its various guises to become a competitive extreme sport. He felt that it had forgotten those who simply wanted to have fun. For him, that’s what paddle boarding offered – a relaxing and sociable way to enjoy the outdoors

Now, more than ten years on, Red Paddle Co is a brilliant community of passionate paddle boarders from all over the world. Our aim is to make the very best products and to support the paddle boarding community in any way we can.



Our dedication to making the best paddle boards possible is what led us to open the Red International Development Centre, our ideas factory. We have an awesome team here, who are all passionate paddle boarders and involved in the development of the company.

At Red Paddle Co, we aren’t just in the board-making industry – we’re in the industry of delivering experiences and creating memories. We’re part of a wider community and we’d love you to join us.
