The go-to board for smaller riders who want all-round performance in all types of conditions.
- Max Rider Weight: 95kg
- Rider Style: All Round
- Min Experience: Beginner
If you’re looking for a versatile board that will perform in all conditions, then look no further than the 9’8’’ Ride from Red Paddle Co. A popular inflatable SUP with smaller riders, this board is designed for all-round use - whether you enjoy the thrill of paddling in the surf, or the tranquillity of calm lakes.
As the smallest of the Ride family, it’s well-suited to lighter riders under 70kg/155lbs. However, that doesn’t mean that heavier riders can’t have fun on it too. At 9’8’’, it makes a great surf shape and can be used in shoulder to head-height waves.
The secret to this board’s versatility is its dimensions: 787mm/31” wide and 100mm/3.93” thick, which makes it stable yet manoeuvrable.
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..
Flat Bungee Cargo System:
The self-closing bungee straps are now larger, creating more tension to keep all your gear on your board! All boards come with three bungee straps on the nose, setting you up perfectly for adventures to come.
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.
Ergonomic Tubular Handles:
On all boards to give a cushioned, comfy grip when carrying your board.
New Titan II Pump
Included with all of our SUP packages, Our newly refined industryleading Titan II pump takes you from neatly-packed to fully-inflated in half the time, with half the effort. See what’s new about the Titan II pump here.
All Terrain Backpack:
The liberating thing about our inflatable boards is how easy they are to travel with. Whether you’re driving to the coast, or flying across the world, all our boards deflate and pack away neatly into our purpose-designed All Terrain backpack, so you can easily transport it to your next location.

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.
