The 9' 6'' Compact from Red Paddle is one of the most transportable SUP boards on the planet. Whether travelling by foot, bike, or public transport, you'll love how convenient it is transporting this board in a backpack. Imagine how liberated you'll feel leaving your stuffy office, throwing on your Compact backpack and heading out towards the open sea or local river.

Ten years in the making, this revolutionary board is a step forward in what an inflatable board can be. It's a full-sized SUP that folds down to half the size of a conventional inflatable paddle board. The design for our 9' 6'' Compact is based on our award-winning 10'6″ MSL Ride. It provides the perfect blend of stability and manoeuvrability, allowing you to make the most of any location and any conditions.

A new look for our flagship Compact range, with a soft grey and cyan drop stitch and a new split deckpad. This allows for water to run off more effectively and improves the 'packability' of the board. It allows the board to fold on the hinge, make it easier to fold and roll.

Packed full of handy features and innovations, this board is ultra-practical for people who are short on storage space, or who want to transport a board easily. In developing this board, Red Paddle Co created a new weaving process that uses an extra-high-tensile thread matrix. The board has a super-strong but supple outer layer that can be packed away neatly in its Compact backpack. The ergonomic tubular handles on the Compact gives a cushioned, comfy grip when carrying your board.

Adjustable Cargo System

Now with a new and improved cargo system made up of three adjustable bungee straps. The bottom two straps are closer together, making it easier to store smaller kit items. A twin d-ring locking system allows easy adjustment and release and the small loop is ideal for water bottle storage. A reinforced cargo point so you can strap on enough cargo for any adventure.

Sustainability.

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.

What is MSL®? Safe. Stiff. Durable. 

Monocoque Structural Laminate or MSL® is the world’s leading drop-stitch material. Exclusive to Red Paddle Co boards, it’s made to our exact specifications. 

Monocoque: meaning the coating is integral to the structure. MSL® drop-stitch technology integrates a highly durable, reinforced coating to the ultra-high-definition weave to form an inseparable base layer. 

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.

Monocoque: meaning the coating is integral to the structure. MSL® drop-stitch technology integrates a highly durable, reinforced coating to the ultra-high-definition weave to form an inseparable base layer. 

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.

9'6" Compact MSL

Great Board. I chose the compact primarily so that it would take up less space on my boat (both inflated and packed), but it is also quite stable, even for a relative newbie, and surprisingly rigid. Excellent product, thanks Red.
