Review of the 2021 Red Paddle Co 10’6″ x 32″ Ride inflatable paddle board

Green Water Sports have recently reviewed the 2021 Red Paddle Co inflatable SUP. Red Paddle Co are the industry leaders of inflatable paddle board technology and the 10’6″ Ride is their most popular model. Check out the first part of the review below.

The 2021 Red Paddle Co 10’6″ Ride inflatable stand up paddle board is a marked evolution over prior year models. There are several notable updates over 2020, including the new Titan 2 Pump, a twin fin system, larger deck pad and new flat bungee system. Continuing is the unmatched attention to detail, and the industry leading 5 year warranty with product registration.

MSL Fusion Technology, exclusive to Red Paddle Co, was introduced for the 2016 model year and it was a huge step up in terms of quality, durability and performance. Now, with a solid 6 years under their belt from this revolutionary change, the 2021 Red Paddle Co range updates focus on not only making the boards even better performing and easier to use, but with attention to even the smallest detail for the best possible inflatable paddle board packages.

Along side the regular (blue) 10’6″ Ride for 2021, we have the 10’6″ Ride Special Edition. This eye catching purple trimmed board was first introduced to celebrate Red Paddle Co ‘s 10th anniversary in 2018 and has stayed on as a popular alternative to the standard blue. In 2008, Red Paddle Co started out as a pioneer in the industry focusing on just inflatable stand up paddle boards, and today, they are the market leaders in terms of technology, quality and performance.

The only difference between the blue 10’6″ Ride and the purple 10’6″ Ride Special Edition is the color, the board has the same specifications and comes with the same items as the regular 10’6″ Ride. With this color difference in mind, this review is valid for both boards.

For 2021, there is also now a 10’6″ Ride Package. This is the same awesome 10’6″ Ride (in blue) coupled with the Red Paddle Co Alloy Nylon Adjustable 70-86″ 3 Piece Paddle and the Red Paddle Co Coiled Leash. A combined value of $188 for just $100.

So what exactly have they updated for 2021? What features have they changed, what details are refined, are the boards better? Should I get one, or maybe the 10’8″ Ride? In an attempt to answer these questions, let’s begin with the 2021 Red Paddle Co 10’6″ Ride review and videos.
