Red Original’s Top 9 Paddle Boarding Accessories For 2021Outdoor Paddle Boarding
Posted by Luke Green
Although we may be just (a tiny bit) biased here at Red Original, we’re convinced there’s no better way to soak up the sun than a day out on the water. What makes the experience even better is having the best kit. Having the right paddle boarding accessories really does make life a whole lot easier both on and off the water, meaning all you need to worry about is enjoying your time on the board.
With this in mind, we’ve created a practical range of high-performance paddle boarding accessories designed with convenience in mind. Below are just a few of our favourite products from this year’s range
Paddle board lock
The last thing you want when you’re enjoying a great day out is for your board to get stolen. Take away the worry by securing your board with a SUP Combination Lock. Long enough to secure multiple boards together, our paddle board lock is looped through the leash point on your board to deter and prevent theft. Ideal for when you need to leave your board unattended, this is definitely one of our most recommended paddle boarding accessories for peace of mind and security.
Keep your valuables with you using the Red Original Waterproof Pouch. Fitted with a YKK Aquaseal Zipper, this pouch is 100% watertight and will keep contents dry even if submerged. The double velcro strap system makes it easy to attach to your person or board and the contents are easy to access. What’s great about this accessory is its size- big enough to carry the essentials like phone, wallet and keys, but small enough not to get in the way of your fun, the waterproof pouch removes any concern about where to store your valuables when you hit the water.
Silent Air Remover
A must-have for anyone who owns an inflatable paddle board, another favourite from our range of paddle boarding accessories is the Silent Air Remover. Deflating your paddle board can be incredibly noisy and quite honestly, embarrassing when you have to deal with unwanted stares of unimpressed onlookers. Delete the embarrassment by removing the noise. Lowering valve depression from 130 decibels to less than 80 decibels, the silent air remover diffuses that initial rush of air allowing you to pack up in peace.
Waterproof Cooler Bag
Our list of must-have paddle boarding accessories certainly wouldn’t be complete without mentioning our Waterproof Cooler Bag. Essential for transporting those all-important refreshments, our waterproof cooler features the same YKK Aquaseal Zipper as our waterproof pouch in addition to thermal lock insulation to keep the contents insulated for up to 72 hours. Easily attachable to your board using a patented, secure luggage tensioning system, there’s no risk of your snacks falling into the water.
Airbelt Personal Flotation Device
The most essential safety item on our list of paddle boarding accessories, the Red Original Personal Flotation Device (PFD) is a lightweight alternative to a bulky buoyancy aid. ISO Certified, this PFD sits comfortably around the waist making it absolutely ideal for stand up paddle boarding. The PFD is inflated with an easy to use grab handle and more air can be added using the manual top-up valve.
Paddle Board Bungee Cords
Why not personalize your prized possession with a splash of colour? We have Bungee Cords available in a range of different colours to suit your individual style and board. The plastic-covered ends of the bungee will prevent the cord from fraying and we have a range of sizes to suit different boards.

SUP Deck Bag
Another favourite from our collection of paddle boarding accessories is the SUP Deck Bag which has been made using high density TPU fabric and an YKK aquaseal Zipper to keep any water out. Designed to be attached to a board, the luggage tensioning system provides optimum security whilst wave webbing allows you to attach all those extras to the bag. You can also get to your belongings easily when you’re out on the water using the ergonomic top access.
Waterproof Active Jacket
The Red Original Active Jacket is totally waterproof, lightweight, and designed to be easily stored and carried in the aforementioned SUP deck bag, a roll-top dry bag, or one of our waterproof 30L backpacks. In the Summer, they are very much a nice-to-have but hope-to-not-need accessory but during the colder and wetter seasons of the year, they become an absolute must-have. Not only will it keep you dry, our active jacket will also ensure you’re comfortable and your movements are not restricted.
RPC Schrader Valve Adaptor
Last but certainly not least in our list of our favourite paddle boarding accessories is the RPC Schrader Valve Adaptor. Save your energy for the water by letting the adaptor do the work for you. Simply attach the valve to the board, attach the other end to a compressor, switch it on and sit back as you see all the hard work done for you!
