Red Paddle Co Announces S18 Board Line

Vancouver, BC (October 17, 2017) – Red Paddle Co, the world’s most popular inflatable stand up paddleboard brand, introduced today their Summer 2018 Inflatable SUP Collection, including the debut of the brand’s ultimate exploring vessel, the Voyager Tandem.  The line also includes a complete redesign of colors and graphics on the current boards in the line.

“We are passionate about discovering new ways to make SUPing easier, more accessible and more enjoyable,” says John Hibbard, Founder of Red Paddle Co. “We think this ease, accessibility and style truly shines through in the latest developments and design features you’ll find in our new collection.”

Red Paddle Co’s 2018 line takes a step up in functionality, sophistication, and style. Each board incorporates a new deck pad grip, helping with traction, improving color longevity of the top sheets, and giving a stylish finish to the deck pad. Each board also has an updated embossed fin. The highly durable iFin system is now enhanced with an embossed surface finish featuring the Red logo.

The Summer 2018 line features a fourth generation of MSL Fusion, Red Paddle Co’s exclusive, constructive process that make their boards the stiffest, most durable inflatable boards in the world. Red Paddle Co also extended their warranty policy to a two-year warranty, in case the durability of the boards is a concern!

Additions to the line for the Summer 2018 season include:

15’ VOYAGER TANDEM: Designed to comfortably accommodate two paddlers along with a small passenger or gear, making it the ultimate board for multi-person touring trips. At 15 feet long, 34 inches wide, and 8 inches thick, the board is stable and stiff to accommodate the extra load, while the parallel rails make paddling a breeze.

10’6” RIDE SE MSL:  The same board we all know and love, but featuring updated, stylish color scheme for the Special Edition (SE) Red Paddle Co 10 year  anniversary celebration.

ELITE BOARDS: The Red Paddle Co Race boards now feature Forward Flex Control (FFC), a carbon compression rod to product unrivaled stiffness when combined with the existing patented RSS system.
