We’re celebrating our 10th birthday in 2018 – but we still have the same enthusiasm and spirit of adventure we had on the day we launched.

On most Sunday mornings at 7am in the medieval village of Bosa, everybody’s still fast asleep. Only the sun is up, lazily runningitsgolenngersthroughthe twisting rows of pastel-coloured houses, while a chorus of chirping birds welcomes the new day. Today, however, this peaceful ritual is broken by a low mechanical buzz that echoes off the walls and cobblestones in the empty streets. The source of the noise is a bright red three-wheel pickup van with two Red Paddle Co SUP packs in the back. It’s carrying Fabrizio Malandruccolo and his partner, Lohene Couteur, of NuAdventure, an outdoor-travel company based nearby. As it pulls up, Lohene jumps out and shouts ‘Ajo!’ –‘Let’s go!’

‘A L L T H E H O U S E S W E R E PA I N T E D I N A D I F F E R E N T CO LO U R S O F I S H E R M E N CO U L D S P OT W H I C H WAS T H E I R S F R O M T H E S E A’ in the local Italian dialect. ‘There’s no time to lose,’ she adds, grinning from ear to ear. ‘We’ve got lots to see and the best way to start is paddleboarding down the river to watch the sun rise over the village.’ The Temo river is navigable by boat and runs through the heart of Bosa, from the mountains in the centre of the island, all the way to the sea. The duo unpack their boards on the quay, unroll them|nst|rtin|ting xithinminutesthey=re ready. They attach their leashes, lower their boards into the water and push off. Lohene wasn’t exaggerating – the view is pretty phenomenal from the water. As we paddle downstream, Fabrizio points out the landmarks, such as the Malaspina Castle, built in 1112, that still dominates the horizon, and tells us more about the|re|=shistory <bos|w|sorigin|lly|shing village,’ he explains, sculling along expertly. ‘All the houses were painted in a different colour so the shermen~oulspotwhi~hw|stheirsfromthe sea. Then it developed as an export hub for local products. We make high-quality olive oil and sweet white wine here – it’s famous throughout Italy.’ Nowadays, the village still undertakes traditional agriculture, but tourism is growing. Fabrizio and Lohene believe it’s essential it develops sustainably, and that’s why paddleboarding is such a fantastic activity for visitors – it allows tourists to explore without impacting negatively on the landscape.

After an hour on the water, Fabrizio guides us back to the quay and announces that we’re going to hike up to the castle. Pulling his board out of the water, he says: ‘Red Paddle Co boards make life soe|syforus uhey=resuperpr|~ti~|ltoe|te and pack on your back, meaning no time wasted.’ We follow the pair through narrow streets that |re~riss~rosse}ystone|r~hes|n|nke}y pretty wrought-iron balconies verdant with hanging plants. On the way, we stop off for a reviving ~offee}eforewen|llyre|~hthe~|stle  Up on the ramparts, we survey the view. ‘Bosa’s the ideal starting point for exploring Sardinia,’ says Lohene. ‘There’s so much to explore here, especially on a paddleboard.’ And that’s exactly why we chose the island for the 2018 Red Paddle Co shoot. Keep reading to follow our voyage of discovery.

Here at Red Paddle Co, we can’t stop innovating. We are the only brand that uses trademarked MSL fusion technology. MSL stands for Monocoque Structural Laminate and this special industrial process adds stiffness to a SUP’s structure while saving weight. Imagine a grid of stitching at the core, holding the top and the bottom together, fused to a double layer of hard-wearing polymer. Adding MSL to our TecAir manufacturing process makes all our boards more durable and ensures they perform better. Our patented RSS stiffening system adds even further rigidity when needed, making SUPs so tough that you can run a 22-tonne digger over them, no problem. And, yes. we really did that!

HOW DOES RSS MAKE THINGS STIFFER?

ENHANCED DURABILITY The multiple-layer coating of Red Paddle Co boards is tough and durable. Thermosealed deckpads keep their colour better than screen-prints.

Our patented RSS, or Rocker Stiffening System, RSS makes our boards up to 40 per cent stiffer. It works by slotting two stiffening battens into pockets that are individually laminated on to the side of the board. The battens are attached to cords held down with Velcro tabs, making them really easy to remove. RSS features on our 100mm/3.93” boards.

The Ride collection is our most popular range. The shorter models are suited to surf conditions, and the longer, wider models for the bigger paddler or families who will be paddling together on one board.

If you’re looking for a step up in performance or are heading off on a multi-day trip, opt for a Sport or Voyager board. Stiff and stable, it’ll be ideal for carrying camping gear, and it hzszprol~}nos~or high-speed cruising.

The Wild was created to cope with the more extreme conditions of a fast-moving river. Its sides are higher, so it can break in and out of a heavy current, and its pronounced rocker means it comfortably rides out the bumps.

If you could only ever have one Red Paddle Co board, the Ride 10’6” is the one we’d tell you to get. It’s already the world’s most popular inflatable SUP but continues to win numerous SUP industry and consumer awards. Such success is due to the unrivalled quality, durability and innovation of all Red Paddle Co boards, but also the versatility of the Ride 10’6”. It’s designed to float and glide easily on flat water, and it has just the right amount of curve in the plan shape so it rides smoothly and predictably in surf, no matter what kind of rider you are. And it’s 4.7”/120mm thick, which increases stiffness while not affecting ride and performance. Practical cargo tie-downs complete an iconic package.

RIDE 10’8’’

The smallest of the Ride family is the Ride 9’8”, a board designed for all-round usage for lighter riders. You’ll get the best out of it if you’re under 70kg/155lb, but that doesn’t exclude heavier riders. In fact, for these SUPers, the 9’8” makes a great surf shape. Key to the Ride’s versatility is its dimensions. It’s 31”/787mm wide and 3.93”/100mm thick, which makes it a stable but manoeuvrable board. It’s perfect for beginners, but because it has been stiffened with our RSS battens (see page 6), it delivers a fantastic experience for more advanced riders, too. The Ride 9’8” also has cargo tie-downs to carry bags and clothing on longer journeys.

Larger riders should look for a board with more stability, which is where the Ride 10’8” comes in. It has all the same qualities as the 9’8” and the 10’6”, but it’s two inches wider and has an extra 56 litres of volume. It’s also 4.7”/120mm thick, which means you get greater stiffness at lower pressure - more than 40 per cent stiffer than a standard 4”/100mm board at the same pressure. You can even take a small passenger on the board easily, which is why it’s a hit with family paddlers and those with furry friends.

Red Paddle Co’s inflatable technology really comes into its own with this giant multi-person board that remains light and easy to transport. At 17’0” long and 60” wide, it’s designed to carry not one, but a large group of riders (and even pets if you want). As many as eight people can fit on this enormous board, and paddling as a group is fun, sociable and great exercise. Technically, the Ride XL is an extension of its sister Ride boards, with a wide deck and tail to make it nice and stable - even when you have a full crew on it. It also has multiple valves so a group of people can inflate it at the same time, and multiple grab handles so they can carry it together.

Increased thickness and capacity makes the Voyager 12’6” super-stiff and stable, so it’s perfect for taller, larger paddlers and longer outings in a range of conditions. Extra length means it can easily handle a child on the front while you paddle, or you can use the cargo tie-downs for camping gear.

The ideal solution for SUP surfers who want to take their board all over the world Travelling round the world with a hard surf SUP isn’t easy. They’re bulky, don’t mix well with airports or planes and there’s always the risk of getting a ding. The solution is the 8’10” Whip, a surf SUP. It’s extremely durable and hard-wearing, making it the perfect travel surf SUP. It’s got a narrow tail, a removable, adjustable fin and Red Paddle Co’s patented RSS batten system, which makes it super-stiff for maximum manoeuvrability.

Paddle hard Speed is essential to ride a breaking wave. You need to be travelling at the same speed as the wave, so paddle hard with short sharp strokes to surf.

When racing you need a stiff and airtight board. MSL gives you the ~onen~etopushout in front and take the lead. The process reduces the amount of glue used to build a board, saving more than 2kg in weight.

By adding MSL to our Tec Air manufacturing process, all of our boards are stiffer and more durable, and offer better performance. This 72-hour process involves rigorous quality-control testing.

MAX RACE 10’6’’

DRAGON

If you’re a young gun looking for a high-performance board that’ll help you mix it in race conditions, we recommend the 10’6” Max Race, which is built for speed and close competition. Our patented RSS system means the board is super-stiff (see page 7), while its narrow nose and tail make it good for speed and agility, and its removable fin and double nose runner fins help it slice through the water. Once you’ve crossed the finish line, just pack it away, throw it on your back, and head for the next race. Which board to choose? For those weighing up to 60kg, the 24” board is perfect, while the wider board is for those over 60kg.

Want to mix the intensity of SUP racing with the camaraderie of team spirit? The four-person Dragon can reach an incredible rate of knots. Retaining the same features as most of the Race family, including profiled nose, slim body and high sides, the Dragon rises out of the water and slices through the waves. It has eight lateral handles for ease of transport, and is also covered in an extra large deckpad with a large dragon design.

Perfect for young guns looking to take their paddling up a notch and test their mettle against others

When you unpack your Red Paddle Co board for the first time, inside you’ll find the lightweight Titan pump. It’s the world’s best SUP pump and was created by our expert engineers to make inflating your board a cinch. The secret is in the dual-chamber system and high-flow handle, which pump air into your board at up to 60mph, ensuring it inflates to the recommended pressure level while using less of your energy.

01 Armed and ready Attach one end of the red hose to the valve on the board and the other to the front of the Titan. Begin pumping using your arms.

We’ve created a line of cool threads for you to wear on your adventures. All items are made from sustainable fabrics. Just take a look at www.redpaddle clothing.com for more details

Designed for the younger rider, this paddle has a shorter, adjustable shaft that can be extended as its owner grows. It also has a smaller blade, and it’s lightweight.

The Midi adjusts from 160–200cm, llingth~gzp between the Kiddy Alloy and the Alloy Nylon, while a Soft EVA grip and ergonomic t-grip mean high levels of comfort.

Our entry-level paddle, but no less technical for it. Its shaft is coated in soft-grip EVA, and it has an ergonomic t-grip handle and a nylon blade.

Combining a lightweight glass fibre shaft with a durable nylon blade, this paddle is a fantastic all-rounder, fitting well with most types of paddling.

This paddle has a glass fibre shaft with a progressive curve blade shape to give you extra performance. The shaft has a dynamic flex that helps your stroke.

The Carbon Nylon paddle is the perfect companion for the Wild board, and the ultimate weapon for white water riding. The nylon blade is highly durable.

This converts from a full-size paddle to a kids’ paddle in seconds, while the carbon shaft keeps it light and the nylon blade gives a durable finish.

The Carbon has many of the benefits of a full carbon paddle but at a lower price. It has a multi-directional carbon weave for greater strength.

Our feather-light Ultimate Carbon has a carbon blade, carbon shaft and t-grip handle. The shaft is oval, delivering controlled flex and maximum power.
