Red NineFour

The Red Paddle Co Nine Four ticks the box when it comes to shorter board performance. Designed in conjunction with test rider Armie in New Zealand the Nine Four will give you that extra boost of performance if surfing is your number one priority.

Being smaller than its sibling the TenSix it packs down super compact allowing for very easy traveling. In fact forget the DVD’s or gym shoes, the Red Paddle Co Nine Four is the number one business trip accessory! Take it with you wherever you go. Throw it in the back of the taxi or hire car. No one will even notice you’ve got it, except when you bust it out on the beach and paddle off!

The drawn in nose makes for a more concise and progressive ride, while the 30″ wide point and rounded tail keep stability and smoothness a reality, something most other smaller SUP boards lose. It also works well as a kids board so once you’ve finished out in the surf you can hand it over to the little people and be sure that it will still be in one piece after they’ve crashed into the rocks, jumped up and down on it in the shorebreak and basically given it hell.

Why Red?

This is a question we get asked all the time.Almost as though they are trying to catch us out and wait for us to admit that our boards are just standard inflatables.The really good thing is that there is a major difference between us and all the other brands and it doesn’t take us long to explain.

You can pretty much narrow the differences down as far as the boards go to two very important factors:

Internal Construction

All Red Air boards use our Quadruple Rail construction. In an inflatable board there is one massive area of weakness – the rails.This is where the material is joined and this is where you would have problems if you were ever going to get a leak.The Rails on a Red Air are 4 x thicker than any other brand.You could wear through 3 layers and still have an air tight board.All other boards are single layer – it only takes one contact with a sharp edge to rip a hole in a single rail board creating disaster. It isn’t just a case of sticking extra layers on.We place each layer in the right place and join them exactly.

Air Pressure

All Red Air boards can take a lot of air pressure. Most other brands only recommend 15psi (any more than this and the risk of explosion or leaks increases).We have pressure tested our boards to 3 times this pressure.The harder the board the better it performs. Don’t settle for a 15psi max board. Get a Red – The real deal.

The third factor is that we are 100% inflatable.We don’t do anything else.We are specialists and we know more than most about inflatable boards.We are passionate about our brand, the inflatable concept and we use the boards ourselves.There is no comparision.

We are sure that once you try a Red you will love it.The proof is in the paddling.

Red NineSix

The best thing about our inflatable boards is that you can take them anywhere to any area of water – We wanted a board that would perform well where ever you wanted to take it. Taking the concept of the 10’6” and pushing it all down into the 9’6” has created a board that rides down whitewater rivers exceptionally well, paddles up the creek to the campsite or catches a swell off the sandbar.

It’s the perfect board for expanding the whitewater river side of our sport.

Unlike other brands that are following the narrow nose design concept we know from our testing that the wide nose adds stability and control on the river and opens up a new world of “skate park” style river riding – A whole new area to explore. Our New Zealand test crew are pushing the boundaries with this side of the sport – watch this space for action from the NZ crew.

Red TenSix

Bringing Colour to the world of SUP, our new SUP lines mean no more bland deck pads and greyscale camo. Two new colours – Horizon and Cali, featuring our new super traction deck pad.

The Red Paddle Co Ten Six is our flagship board. Designed to match the requirements of the all round rider, it will float and glide easily on flat water. It’s the perfect flat water cruiser. It is also designed to ride smoothly and predictably in surf. While some inflatable boards flex uncontrollably in the surf our super stiff double layer construction holds firm and allows you to pick your line across even the smallest of
waves.

Fin placement and rocker lines are the key ingredient that turns our boards from being ordinary into something that you want to ride again and again. The Ten Six comes complete with a carry bag and special Red Paddle Co Ezee pump, which makes inflation to 15-20psi really easy, leaving you more time to paddle.

Red TenEight Mega

Enter the Red Paddle Co Ten Eight Mega. It was a huge technical challenge to design an inflatable that could work with this width and volume, but we’ve cracked it! Thanks to the unique Red Air construction methods, you can pump this baby up to a high pressure – more pressure equals more volume. You can pump the Mega so it’s rock solid and stable, even with a huge weight on board.

The combination of overall width plus the wide tail creates an unbelievably stable platform. You’re probably thinking, hmmm, anything that big will probably be slow and lifeless. Not so! Admittedly it’s never going to win any races, but it still feels lively and responsive – we’ve put it head to head against every other 34cm+ board on the market and it blows them all away. The Mega is completely unique. There’s nothing else like it on the market – indeed, nobody else could make it the same as we do.

The Ten Eight comes complete with a carry bag and special Red Paddle Co Ezee pump, which makes inflation to 15-20psi really easy, leaving you more time to paddle. It’s easy to pack and store the boards at the end of the season.
