Red Paddle Co Intros Compact Touring SUP

To kickstart 2020, Red Paddle Co has revealed the second addition to their exclusive Compact family of inflatable paddle boards; The all new 11’0 COMPACT is the next generation in paddle board technology. Following the success of the world’s most transportable board, the 9’6” Compact, the Red Paddle Co design team have put their award-winning MSL PACT™ technology to the test and produced an all new touring SUP.

The specialist premium inflatable paddle board brand snapped up the ‘Best Technology’ gear award by Supconnect in 2019 and as Head of Design, Phil Hawthorne explains the 11’0 Compact was the natural evolution of their most transportable range of boards – “The reception we received for our PACT technology and our 9’6 Compact board in general has been fantastic. As an experience-based brand, it was really important for us to get our design out on the water and see what the reception was from the paddling community.”

Hawthorne continues, “We wanted to improve the experience for all participants in the sport, which necessitates different designs to cater for different needs. The 11’0 Compact is an ideal match for paddlers who regularly travel with their board or want to adventure further with the convenience of an all-in-one package. The increased length makes this board perfect for longer paddling adventures and those traveling the world with their SUP.”

Designed with a more drawn out shape to increase glide, the 11’0 Compact is perfect for paddlers who want to travel and explore without limitation. The whole package is full of practical features and innovations – the board has a quad stringer tensioning system, giving maximum rigidity while the central living hinge means the board can be folded and rolled into a super small package, making it the most transportable adventure SUP on the market.
