At Red, sustainability isn’t just marketing hype – it’s at the core of what we do. As a certified B Corp (www.bcorporation.net) we champion high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. 

Fundamentally, our boards are designed and built to last. Our quality-assured Tec-Air process has a negligible warranty rate. Maximum longevity minimises our impact on the planet. 

Yet even durable Red kit will eventually reach end-of-life, hence our ‘design for disassembly’ approach. For example, all Titan pump components are replaceable, while using 100% recoverable virgin plastic in our fins, finboxes and RSS battens ensure they’re fully recyclable.

How to store your board 

Your board should be stored in a cool dry place, out of direct sunlight and either rolled up and stored in the bag, If storing for a long time without use, make sure you ease the tightness of the roll so that there isn't lots of pressure going through the strap into the board, especially near the fin box if you have one of these. It may also be an idea to store the pump separately if you do have the space for this.  

If you are hoping to keep your board inflated, we recommend...

How to store your board 

Your board should be stored in a cool dry place, out of direct sunlight and either rolled up and stored in the bag, If storing for a long time without use, make sure you ease the tightness of the roll so that there isn't lots of pressure going through the strap into the board, especially near the fin box if you have one of these. It may also be an idea to store the pump separately if you do have the space for this.  

If you are hoping to keep your board inflated, we recommend keeping this on a flat surface or upright (not kept on a rack for a long duration) to prevent changes to the shape of the board. If you are not going to use it for a while you should reduce the pressure to below 15psi and keep your board in the cool and dry. 

Before you pack your board away though, it is particularly important that you rinse everything in fresh water (Board/Bag/Paddle/Pump/Leash etc) and allow to dry completely before packing it away. 

How to roll your board 

Firstly, we recommend having your All-Terrain Bag open and ready to go, with your board deflated and your board strap nearby.  

Place your pump at the nose of the board, leaving a little bit of room around the nose so that you can wrap this over the pump, this will help keep the pump secure and in place. 

Roll the board around the pump, keeping the pump as square as possible with the rails of the board. The tighter you roll your board, the easier it will be to fit in your All Terrain Bag - but avoid putting too much tension around features like the fin box (if your board has removable fins). 

Once you have finished rolling your board, grab you board strap and wrap this around to secure. 

When you place your board in the All-Terrain Bag, you will find a strap attached to the inside of the bag. Fixing this around the board will help with board movement when out exploring.

Structural: the high-tensile drop-stitch fibres are designed to withstand pressures in excess of 22psi, meaning Red boards can be inflated to provide unrivalled stiffness and confidence, no matter the rider weight or prevailing conditions. 

Laminate: the reinforced composite coating is bonded to the textile core using machine welding that applies heat and pressure to the inner PVC layer, saving over 2kg of adhesives and reducing cosmetic and safety concerns. Produced under low tension, this process creates a torsional stiffening effect when the boards are inflated, making MSL® stiffer at lower pressures.

Brilliant ride!

I bought this for my wife, at only 47kg she struggled on her previous 10' 6" board (from another maker). The Red 9'8" Ride MSL was an instant hit for her, much easier to control, turn and less prone to moving with the wind. She absolutely loves it and it was a very good price too!

The paddle board is the same, amazing quality to expect from Red Paddle. Fantastically rigid and good for flat water paddling, but also for small surf.

Perfect iSUP - only missing removable fins

Hi Red. Thanks for making this awesome board. I have the older version with 3 fins and it’s by far the best iSUP I’ve ever tried. Large and stabile enough for touring along the beach, small, stiff and agile enough for surfing small waves. Even large enough for me (78kg) and my daughter (~25kg) to cruise together in calm waters. However, I share other reviewers comments that the fins should be removable. It just takes too much space when folded together in a fully packed car while road-tripping. I have the Whip also, which I bring touring because it fits perfectly in my EV frunk, and I just can’t get the ride in there… But the Whip isn’t as all-round as the Ride 9”8. Please make a version with removable fins and I would for sure upgrade!
