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 inflatable SUP, the fastest board in its class.
The 2018 model of the 12’6″ x 26″ Elite benefits from all of the latest Red Paddle Co innovations such as our patented Rocker Stiffening System or RSS. This counters any flex through two stiffening battens that are inserted into pockets on the side of the board; In addition to RSS, our patented Forward Flex Control System (FFC) then adds rigidity to the front of the board using a carbon compression rod to prevent flex that can be created in a race, channeling the energy towards the back of the board which increases overall board speed. RSS and FFC work together to create the stiffest, fastest inflatable SUP’s on the market today.
WHAT ELSE SETS RED PADDLE CO 12'6" x 26" ELITE RACE ABOVE THE COMPETITION? Double nose fins (one above and one below deck) aid tracking and displace water from the deck of the board; The glass fibre centre fin gives the right amount of grip without adding drag, and the angled design prevents any debris from getting stuck on it; Multiple carry handles provide fast entry and exit of the water and don't get in the way during racing; The diamond cut, Red embossed deck pad provides ultimate grip in control in all stages of a race.

WHY ARE RED PADDLE CO INFLATABLE SUPS LIGHTER AND STRONGER
The MSL fusion process involves fusing a second layer of hard-wearing, airtight, composite polymer to the dropstitch core at the raw material stage, removing hand gluing errors. This high-tech industrial process saves almost 2kg in weight while making the boards stiffer at lower pressures. With the third generation of MSL material now in use, these boards are more durable than ever. Did you check out the video of a 22 tonne digger driving over it?
