Loaded with gear, or loaded with kids, the V-Hull on the Red Paddle Co Voyager 12’6″ is phenomenal. Slicing through the water like a composite board, it can glide through a glassy morning or cut through chop like a pro.
Red Paddle boards are some of the best inflatable paddle boards on the market and we are exceptionally happy with ours. Check out the 12’6″ Voyager by Red Paddle Co at Green Water Sports.
It’s one board that does it all. But, you can get it in 2 colors, so technically it’s two boards…?
Anyway, the one board that does it all is the Red Paddle Co 10’6″ Ride. A legend of inflatable paddle boards. It’s 10’6″ long and 32″ wide. The perfect shape and size for pretty much every paddler and their paddling adventure. We’ve had 3 versions over the years, and we have loved every minute of paddling them.
Green Water Sports recently reviewed the 10’6″, and summed it up best with: “Put simply, this is the most complete and best all round inflatable stand up paddle board on the market.”
Half the size, but not double the adventure, triple the adventure!
The Red Paddle Co 12’0″ Compact is just as stiff and durable as all Red Paddle Co boards are famously known for. It offers the same top-level performance while still supporting riders up to 265 lbs. Combine the top-level performance with the convenience of being able to easily travel with the board, or easily store it in your apartment or on your boat, and you have a board that stands atop the industry in stand up paddle board design.
The Red Paddle Co Compact 12′ is designed for paddlers who want the convenience of a full size and full feature board that packs down to half the size of a regular inflatable SUP. All this without compromising on performance.
Like the other Compact range paddle boards by Red Paddle Co, the 9’6″ Compact and the 11′ Compact, the 12′ Compact ships complete with 5-piece paddle and coiled leash for the full package. Full details at Green Water Sports.
When the wind is light, we still like to get out on the water. We enjoy paddle boarding the Red Paddle Co 10’6″ Ride. It is a great all round paddle board that is stable enough for beginners, yet manoeuvrable enough for intermediate and advanced paddlers to continue using for years to come. We’ve been paddling for almost 10 years and our go-to family SUP is the 10’6″ Ride by Red Paddle Co.
Sure, we’ve had it for a while and it’s a bit dirty, but the board has stood up to all sorts of use and abuse for a long time. My 5 year old and 7 year old enjoy paddling it in the pool, and we enjoy paddling it together out the front of our apartment in Cabarete Bay and in the local river, La Boca.
If the waves are small, too small for my wave SUP and the wind is super light, I’ll also paddle it out to the reef to catch a few rollers.
The Ride 10’6″ packs down nice and tight thanks to the MSL Fusion construction. It is tough, durable and kid friendly! We thoroughly recommend this board for those who want a convenient to store, transport, and above all, excellent to paddle SUP.
As with all premium products, caring for them is vital to their prolonged service. Inflatable stand up paddles boards are no exception. Despite their extreme durability and resistance to impact, a huge bonus over regular hard SUPs, inflatable SUPs still need some general care. Starboard have created this cool infographic with a few tips.
Clean the board after each use with fresh water and mild soap.
2. Avoid direct sunlight
If you need to leave the board inflated in direct sunlight, deflate it to at least 10 PSI, although direct sunlight should be avoided where possible.
3. Don’t use an air compressor
You can easily over inflate the board by using air compressor and void the warranty.
4. No dragging
Sharp debris can puncture your board, it is best not to drag it.
5. Use it frequently
Long-term storage can cause glue bonds to disintegrate. (Less of an issue as fusion and welding technologies evolve.)
6. Store at room temperature
Keep the boards sheltered away from extreme high and low temperatures, and excessive humidity.
7. Keep it dry
Dry the board off after each use and before storing to avoid mold damage.

Stand up paddle boarding is a booming sport. Each year thousands more venture out onto the water in the name of fun and good exercise. Some people like to surf paddle boards, some people like to race them, but the vast majority just like to cruise around and have fun at the beach, the lake, the river, or whatever your body of water may be. Naturally, there are boards that are designed for each section of the paddling population in mind with features and characteristics that go hand in hand with the intended purpose of the board. Surf SUPs are short and curvy, while racing paddle boards tend to be long and sleek with sharper edges. In the middle, you have the all round paddle board, and I’d like to highlight here one of the most versatile all round stand up paddle boards on the market. I’ve also personally owned one for about 3 years and even after a paddling career of almost 10 years, this board is still my go-to board and a family favourite.
The Red Paddle Co Ride 10’6″ is an inflatable stand up paddle board suited to paddlers from 100-220lbs. It is a great beginner board, a great first board, and a great all round board for the seasoned paddler. It really is the board that does it all for 90% of the population.

Travelling the world with your paddle board has never been easier. Inflatable paddle boards by industry leaders Red Paddle Co and other notable brands including Naish Paddle Boards and Starboard SUPs, are resetting everyone’s perception and what can be achieved with a portable stand up paddle board.
Inflatable paddle boards can be rolled up, folded up and packed into a backpack or wheeled bag. This makes them extremely convenient to travel with. These boards can fit in the trunk of a small car, check in on aeroplanes and carried on your back if you choose to hike into a remote lake, river, beach, or lagoon.
On top of that, the 3 piece or breakdown paddles available also fit in the board bag along with all accessories for another great session on the water.
But what about performance you ask? Well, inflatables have come forward in leaps and bounds over the last 5 years mostly thanks to the afore mentioned brands leading the industry with technological and design advances. Inflatable SUP boards can pump up to 25PSI, which is more than enough to hold shape and be competitive with a true hard board on the race scene. However 15-20PSI is suitable for most paddlers and they get to enjoy the water but have the pleasure of a convenient package for transportation and storage.
