If you’re getting serious about the 12’6” racing class, you’ll need a super-fast board that’s been developed to compete against the best – and win. That board is the Red Paddle Co 12’6” Elite, the fastest board in its class.
The secret behind its speed is in the details. It utilises our patented RSS system, which stiffens the board so there’s no flex, a common flaw in inflatable race boards. It’s also 5.90”/150mm thick, which raises the board out of the water, reducing drag, and it has double nose runner fins that keep the board tracking straight without causing drag. Plus it has a US Fin Box system so you can adjust your fin to suit your style. It’s already taken hard board racers by surprise – who knew you could compete on an inflatable?

If you’re in the 14’ race class, this is the board to get. The Red Paddle Co 14’ Elite is a machine built for speed.
At 14’ long and just 660mm/26” wide, it has been shaped to cut through the water like a hot knife through butter. It rides high at 150mm thick, reducing drag, while double nose runner fins keep the board tracking straight without creating drag, a combination that lies at the heart of what makes this board so fast and so easy to control in race conditions.
Red Paddle Co RSS system stiffens the board so there’s no flex, and the board comes with a built-in US Fin Box system, allowing you to adjust your fin to suit your style. It’s also a great downwind board – it picks up swell and glides beautifully. All this in a board you can deflate, pack away and carry home in a backpack!

MSL fusion composite and airtight coating New for 2016, MSL involves fusing a second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at the raw material stage, removing hand gluing errors. The high-tech industrial process also saves almost 2kg in weight and makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures.
