RED PADDLE CO LIMITED EDITION DESIGN COMPETITION

Posted by Jess Davies

To honour World Ocean Day we are thrilled to partner with our friends at Love the Oceans during the month of May and June for the 2021 Red Paddle Co Design Challenge.

Hosted alongside the creative design platform, Spoonflower, we’re challenging you to create a unique design for our award winning Ride 10’6″ paddle board that represents the variety of waterways passionate paddle boarders from all over the world have grown to love.
 

THE WORLD'S WATERWAYS


Inspired by the waterways which we all love to explore and play on. We encourage you to celebrate the variety of waterways across the globe we have the pleasure to paddle on. The theme should draw attention to the importance of preserving the oceans, coastlines, rivers, lakes, marine life and ecosystems so that future generations can enjoy and treasure our one blue planet.

ABOUT THE BOARD​

The world’s most popular inflatable SUP, the Ride 10'6" board is a truly versatile inflatable SUP.

We are asking you to design a repeater pattern that will go on that white part of the board, as displayed here.

The winning design will be limited to no more than four colors. Due to the nature of Red manufacturing, your design challenge entry should also be non-directional. The Red Paddle Co design team will work directly with the winning designer to get their design ready for our manufacturing process.

 

SUPPORTING LOVE THE OCEANS


Our friends at Love the Oceans know all too well how important it is to protect and preserve the marine ecosystems in our oceans. Based in in Jangamo Bay, Mozambique, founded by Francesca Trotman, the team use research, education and diving to drive action towards a more sustainable future. They are working to establish a Marine Protected Area for the Inhambane Province in Mozambique, achieving higher biodiversity whilst protecting endangered species in an aim to create a successful conservation plan that can be replicated up and down the coastline, and through other developing nations.

 

 

Francesca and her team have been using Red Paddle Co boards for a few of years to monitor the marine life around Janhamo bay area, transporting their research equipment and using the boards as mobile diving platforms.
