Red Paddle Co 12’6 Race Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board + Bag TITAN Pump & Paddle
Who’s it for? Competitive types – you know who you are
Racing SUPs is great fun and fantastic exercise which is why the race scene is expanding rapidly.
The big problem for most paddlers though is that race boards are long and heavy which makes them difficult to transport and store. The Red Paddle Co 12’6” Race solves that problem. It’s long and narrow which means it’s lightning-quick through the water but at the same time it’s an inflatable so it can be packed away for easy transport and storage (see page 30).
Despite its practicality there’s no compromise on performance. The 12’6” Race features Red Paddle Co’s patented RSS stiffening system (see page 5); its rocker line has been designed for fast glide and ride; its double nose fins help tracking; and the centre fin at its rear gives the right amount of grip without adding drag.

The high-tech industrial process also saves almost 2kg in weight and makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures.
