Inflatable boards were originally designed simply to solve the problems of storage space and transportation. There are now many brands offering inflatable paddleboards. But Red Paddle Co has taken the concept a whole stage further. Their boards inflate to such a high pressure (way beyond the competition), that they perform really well - many people now actually prefer them to solid boards. And they are built so damn strongly that they're actually way tougher than any solid board - you can bounce them off rocks all day long. Yet they're so user-friendly!!!.
Unlike ordinary boards, these don't hurt when they hit you. They also surf surprisingly well, too. Ding proof and fool proof , the Red Paddle Co boards are the best inflatable boards on the market by far. And all that in a package that rolls up into a little bag you can easily keep in the car or on the boat. And it only takes 3-4 minutes to inflate with the hand pump (provided), or our 12v compressor. How convenient is that?!

Having the right paddle makes all the difference. But - while it's great to have a super-light state-of-the-art carbon blade in your hands - you don't need to break the bank to get a good functional paddle, We have a superlative range of paddles that can suit any pocket, made to our own specification by a well-established US paddle manufacturer. These aren't some Chinese factory generic rip-offs, they're really good gear and you won't be disappointed.

The great thing about stand-up paddleboarding is that getting wet isn't necessarily an issue. If you're not surfing or riverboarding then you probably aren't going to be falling in. However, there's always the chance... Which means that you do need to be a little careful as to what you wear. Which is why we've sourced some excellent options for you right here...
We've done our homework and scoured the globe to find the right products for SUP wear. Everything we list here, we use ourselves. And we can't give a higher endorsement than that, really!
