Red Paddle Co were one of the first companies on the race SUP scene and over the years have developed a wealth of knowledge about how to maximise performance. From the Max Race 10’6” through to the Elite 14’0” and the revolutionary Dragon, all of our boards have race-winning pedigree. Through continual research and development, we’re continually pushing the boundaries of race performance and have developed a number of innovations that are unique to Red Paddle Co:
FFC is our patented innovation that stiffens the front section of the board using a compression strut. It removes flex that can be created in a race, as well as increasing overall board speed.
RSS counters flex with two stiffening battens that are inserted into pockets on the sides. On elite boards these are combined with FFC to ensure a rigid ride.
When racing you need a stiff and airtight board. MSL gives you the confidence to push out in front and take the lead. The process reduces the amount of glue used to build a board, saving more than 2kg in weight.
By adding MSL to our Tea Air manufacturing process, all of our boards are stiffer and more durable, and offer better performance. This 72-hour process involves rigorous quality-control testing.
