Re-defining portability in paddle board design.

Based on the 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.
To achieve this completely new compact board Red Paddle Co 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.
We did the Scottish 500 in my little van and where happy with how little space the sup took up in our van.
I thought the performance of the sup would be very unstable because of its smaller design but I pull my hat off to the guys at red for there design and at snowdonia Watersport because of there knowledge! although it is small and indeed compact it still was very stable and I only fell in once when I was attempting to take a picture with my camera!
I already have a solid board for surfing and general use, so I bought this to fit in my (small) car alongside all my other kit for a week away. It also hides nicely in the corner of my cupboard at home! Perfect for chilled out SUPing with friends on a trip, not so good at surfing, but then I have a solid board for that..
Really happy with this super compact little SUP. It's hard to pack away but with practice it gets easier... the only thing I would say is that the paddle that comes with it isn't great. It fits in the bag no problem, just feels a bit flimsy. The board is ace though
