Once upon a board, Red Paddle Co co-founder, John Hibbard, realised there might be a better way of doing things. It was 2008 and paddleboarding was just getting going. As he paddled along on a heavy composite SUP, he had this crazy idea that it could be made better with an inflatable board. Fast forward 11 years and for over a decade Red have been the industry leaders in design and construction, producing inflatable stand up paddleboards of the highest quality, giving the rider an authentic paddleboarding experience. Red Paddle Co’s award-winning designs and patented technologies are just a few examples of why Red boards stand out. Their compact, stow-away size, extensive range of boards and easy inflation make them the perfect boating companion. Whether you have never been on a SUP or looking to win a race series, there is a Red Paddle Co inflatable SUP board for you.
