Who’s it for? Surfers who want to take their ride all over the world
Travelling round the world with a hard surf SUP isn’t easy. They’re bulky, don’t mix well with airports or airplanes and there’s always the risk of getting a ding.
The solution is this, the 8’10” Whip, a surf inflatable SUP you can throw in a bag and take all over the world as if it were just any other backpack. It’s extremely durable and has been tested to destruction (actually, even after we drove over one of our boards in a tractor, it still worked just fine), making it the perfect travel surf SUP. It’s got a narrow tail, a removable, adjustable fin from world leading surfboard fin creators FCS and Red Paddle Co’s patented RSS batten system, which makes it super-stiff for maximum manoeuvrability.
The rounded nose helps to pop the board over white water paddling out as well as makes nose riding a joy for any level of rider. The Red embossed deck pad offers comfort and grip and a diamond cut rear section with raised kick pad provides even greater grip and stability allowing you to turn the board tighter.
HOW DOES RSS MAKE THINGS STIFFER
Our patented RSS, or Rocker Stiffening System, makes our boards up to 40 per cent stiffer by displacing the riders weight over a greater length of the board. It works by slotting two stiffening battens into pockets that are individually laminated on to the side of the board. The battens are attached to cords held down with velcro tabs, making them really easy to remove.
LIGHTWEIGHT BUT STRONG
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 saves almost 2kg in weight whilst making the boards stiffer at lower pressures. With our third generation of MSL material now in use, our boards are more durable than ever, if you don’t believe us then check out this video of us driving a 22 tonne digger over it!
BAG IT UP
Our Red Original Backpack is a perfect travel partner for paddleboarders everywhere, with internal storage for travel paddles, multiple carry handles, integrated wheels and sherpa back pack system which can stored for transport and storage.
