Red Paddle Co. 12'6" Elite inflatable SUP
If you’re getting serious about the 12’6” racing class, you’ll need a super-fast board that’s been developed to compete against the best – and win. That board is the Red Paddle Co 12’6” Elite, the fastest board in its class.
The secret behind its speed is in the details. It utilises our patented RSS system, which stiffens the board so there’s no flex, a common flaw in inflatable race boards. It’s also 5.90”/150mm thick, which raises the board out of the water, reducing drag, and it has double nose runner fins that keep the board tracking straight without causing drag. Plus it has a US Fin Box system so you can adjust your fin to suit your style. It’s already taken hard board racers by surprise – who knew you could compete on an inflatable?
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating New for 2016, MSL involves fusing a second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at the raw material stage, removing hand gluing errors. The high-tech industrial process also saves almost 2kg in weight and makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures.
