The 9’ 6’’ Compact from Red Paddle is one of the most transportable SUP boards on the planet. Whether travelling by foot, bike, or public transport, you’ll love how convenient it is transporting this board in a backpack.
Imagine how liberated you’ll feel leaving your stuffy office, throwing on your Compact backpack and heading out towards the open sea or local river. Ten years in the making, this revolutionary board is a step forward in what an inflatable board can be. It’s a full-sized SUP that folds down to half the size of a conventional inflatable paddle board.
The design for our 9’ 6’’ Compact is based on our award-winning 10’6″ MSL Ride. It provides the perfect blend of stability and manoeuvrability, allowing you to make the most of any location and any conditions. Packed full of handy features and innovations, this board is ultra-practical for people who are short on storage space, or who want to transport a board easily.
In developing this board, Red Paddle Co created a new weaving process that uses an extra-high-tensile thread matrix. The board has a super-strong but supple outer layer that can be packed away neatly in its Compact backpack.
Timeless design: The Red Paddle Co iconic design has been updated for 2021 with a more streamlined look and feel. The extended Red embossed deck pad now reaches right down to the tail, wraps closer to the rails, and offers superior comfort and grip. The diamond-cut rear provides extra stability for performing step back turns, or for riding in bigger waves.
Flat Bungee Cargo System – UNIQUE TO RED PADDLE CO! – The self-closing, flat bungee straps are now larger, creating more tension to keep all your gear on your board! All boards come with three bungee straps on the nose, setting you up perfectly for adventures to come.
Ergonomic tubular handles on all boards to give a cushioned, comfy grip when carrying your board.
New Titan II pump! Included with all of our SUP packages, our newly refined industry-leading Titan II pump takes you from neatly-packed to fully-inflated in half the time, with half the effort.
The 9’6’’ Compact package includes the board, backpack, five-piece paddle, Titan II pump and leash. The packed weight of the board is only 12.7kg.
