The Ride family is our most versatile, but we recognise that bigger riders often look for a board offering more stability, which is where the Red PaddleCo 2019 10’8 Ride comes in.
It has all the same qualities as the 9’8” and the 10’6”, but it’s two inches wider at 34” and has an extra 56 litres of volume, creating a more stable ride. It’s also 4.7” thick, which means you get greater stiffness at lower pressure. In fact, it’s more than 40 per cent stiffer than a standard 4” board at the same pressure. Another benefit of the 10’8” is that you can take a small passenger on the board more easily, too, which is why family paddlers often prefer it to the smaller Ride options.
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating. 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 22% in weight from previous years models and makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures.
For 2019, RED Paddle co has added a special screw thread to all of their boards that is compatible with RAM MOUNTS products, the world leading accessory bracket manufacturer. This will enable you to securely attach a range of accessories, from GPS devices and cameras to fishing rods and cup holders.
The Red embossed deck pad offers comfort and grip and a diamond cut rear section provides even greater grip and stability when performing step back turns or during occasional use in the surf. It comes with our industry leading Titan pump as standard which will have your board inflated in half the time with half the effort and packs down neatly to fit into our all terrain backpack making transportation and storage simple.
Price includes the board, all accessories & the phenomenal back pack carry bag, a three piece adjustable paddle for the whole family, and the 2018 Titan Pump.
