A tried and true all round inflatable SUP

The 2022 Red Paddle Co 10’6″ Ride inflatable SUP boards are thoughtfully tweaked versions of the 2021 models. The boards have an updated flat cargo bungee system that has an extra d-ring to allows you to more easily stow a water bottle. The biggest change is the new ATB Transformer Bag. A convertible backpack and sling, a 2-in-1 style bag and back pack making transporting your paddle board even easier. Continued are the unique to Red Paddle Co twin iFins, large deck pad, accessory mount and padded carry handles. And of course, Red Paddle Co offer the industry leading 5 year warranty with product registration.

Along side the regular (blue) 10’6″ Ride, there is the Red Paddle 10’6″ Ride Special Edition. This colorful purple board was first introduced to celebrate Red Paddle Co ‘s 10th anniversary in 2018 and has remained in the range as a popular alternative to the regular blue board.

We love both boards and they are now available at Green Water Sports.

Our favourite Fanatic inflatable stand up paddle boards

In the down time between windy days, or in the mornings before the wind builds, we have come to love Fanatic paddle boards. They have created several boards in their line up that just seem to work so well. We’ll outline 2 ranges of boards here. First off the Fly or more specifically, the Fly Air range of paddle boards. Modelled on their Fly hard board range, the Fly Air inflatable SUP range feature 3 models in 9’8″ x 32″, 10’4″ x 33″ and 10’8″ x 34″.

With the Fanatic inflatable paddle board Fly Air range, they created all encompassing SUPs that can serve almost everyone. 9’8″ up to 10’8″ and 32 out to 34″ fits the needs of most people looking to get on the water and have a good time. The boards come in 2 construction versions. The Fly Air utilises the single skin approach – great for those looking to get on the water on a budget. Green Water Sports recently wrote a review of the Fanatic Fly Air 10’4″. Then you have the Fly Air Premium models. Double layer light or fusion construction, is Fanatic’s top of the line and feature rich construction. Including a windsurf sail mount, these boards are the bees knees!

The second model is the Stubby. Available in both composite, aka hard construction, and as an inflatable as the Stubby Air Premium, the Stubby is the surf focused board with all-condition specifications. Wide at 29.5″ but relatively short, or should I say stubby, at just 8’6″ this board is a hoot to paddle and doubles as a great compact windsurf board as well!
