Unlike other paddle board companies out there, we never compromise on quality and innovation giving you unrivalled safety and durability. By focussing in on the key areas of the production process we have been able to identify ways we can improve the end result. Whether it be detailing exactly where and how the layers are bonded or how the rocker curve is applied to the board, no area of the design process is ignored.
A superb cosmetic finish
Our attention to detail on the inside ensures the best experience on the outside. Next we coat the thread structure in a layer of adhesive that has been specially formulated to create both a seal and a bonding layer. We then machine laminate a layer of high-density structural PVC to this adhesive layer under controlled conditions – completely removing the human factor involved in traditional double layer application. – All Red Paddle Co boards have an industry-leading cosmetic finish. No wrinkles or blemishes. The boards look cleaner and smoother and even feel better to the touch.
MSL: THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE DETAIL
MSL: THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE DETAILMSL is recognised as the industry’s leading construction process and is exclusive to Red Paddle Co. Red Paddle Co boards are built using specially produced, high density drop stitch (the material inside an inflatable board) that makes for a stronger and stiffer core. On the outside of a Red Paddle Co board you will see thousands of dimples spread from nose to tail and rail to rail. Each dimple represents an internal thread. We do not use Linear drop-stitch which is a mass produced, cheap material that cannot hold high pressure.
THE FINISHING TOUCHES
THE FINISHING TOUCHESWe have tested every fin system currently available and even developed fin systems of our own to find the best solution.
Most boards in the Red Paddle Co range come with built-in fins – the high-performance iFin system. With moulded fins you don’t need any tools, replacements or spares. They are specially designed to be ultra-durable and easy to pack away for transport.
Adding MSL to our TecAir manufacturing process makes all our boards more durable and ensures they perform better.
Innovation is at our core and we're always on the hunt for the very best materials and components to push the boundaries. Using our own experiences as well as properly considering the end users of our products, our team of designers create user-based functionality that works. So whether it is a cleverly placed stretch vent panel on a change jacket to make it easier to get your wetsuit off, or a pull handle to easily cover your wet board with our protecting Board Jacket – you will find our range intuitive and a pleasure to use.
