Red Paddle Co COMPACT 9'6" by 32" inflatable SUP
Standard RIDE board in bag on the left, Compact on the right.
We decided we better get this baby in the water to try it out and what a surprise it was! Because it is so light, it is a breeze to paddle. The real suprise came when we started riding waves on it! This board actually surfs pretty darned well for an inflatable board! I didnt think I would ever be able to say that, but it's true. If I was travelling somewhere and wanted to have a surf just for a bit of fun, on an easy sort of wave, this would be the board to take. If I was driving a caravan or sailing a boat, this would definitely be the board!
Who's it for?
An all-round SUP for riders who want the ultimate in convenience and storage without compromising on performance.
Half the Size, Double the Adventure. A game-changing SUP both on and off the water!
Ten years in the making, our mission to make paddle boarding even more accessible has been realised. Our revolutionary 9’6” Compact (patent-pending) is a step forward in what an inflatable board can be – a full-sized SUP which folds down to half the size of a conventional inflatable paddle board.
Based on our award-winning, all-round Ride 10’6″ MSL, the 9’6” Compact is 32”/813mm wide and 4.7”/120mm thick and provides the perfect blend of stability and manoeuvrability allowing you to make the most of any location and any conditions! Weighing in at just 8kg (board-only) and supporting riders up to 95kg/209lbs, it has never been easier to fold, roll and go on your next SUP adventure.
Read the full story of why we created the 9’6″ Compact…
To achieve this completely new compact board we developed state-of-the-art trademarked technology, exclusive to the 9’6″ Compact. At the core of the board is a unique weaving process that creates an extra-high-resolution thread matrix. When combined with a super-strong but malleable outer layer and advanced quad stringer system – the result is a super-stiff board that rolls up to an ultra-small pack size.
THE 9’6” COMPACT PACKAGE INCLUDES THE BOARD, BACKPACK, FIVE-PIECE PADDLE, TITAN PUMP AND LEASH.
(Packed weight is approximately 12.7kg)
