Who is the Ride 9’8″ for? This board is perfect for lighter riders who want a versatile board for every circumstance and also great for paddle surfing.
The smallest of the Ride family. The 9’8” Ride inflatable SUP is really designed for all-round paddling for lighter riders under 155 lbs but is also a great surf shape for a heavier paddler. The key to the 9’8″ Ride’s versatility is it’s stable 31″ width and only 3.93″ thickness, making it a extremely maneuverable board.
The Ride RSS battens help to stiffen the board to allow the thinner board more rigidity. It is a great paddleboard for beginners but also delivers a fantastic experience for more advanced riders, too. The 9’8” Ride also has a six point cargo tie-down system to carry bags and clothing on longer journeys. As an inflatable board it also packs down into our all terrain backpack making it easy to transport and store.
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 when surfing or performing step back turns. Supplied with our Titan pump you can pump the board up to pressure and be on the water in half the time, with half the effort compared to other SUP pumps.

What to expect with your RED Paddle Co. MSL Inflatable Paddleboard
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!
TITAN – THE KING OF PUMPS
When you unpack your Red Paddle Co board for the first time, inside you’ll find the lightweight Titan pump. It’s the world’s best SUP pump and was created by our expert engineers to make inflating your board a cinch. The secret is in the dual-chamber system and high-flow handle, which pumps air into your board at up to 60mph, ensuring it inflates to the recommended pressure level while using less of your energy.
