At 34″ wide, the Red Paddle Co Wild gives a stable ride and the 5.9″ thickness means it glides across boils and easily breaks in and out of moving water. The board is constructed with Red Paddle Co’s exclusive MSL laminated construction, with an extra layer as well so you can throw it around in the shallows without a second thought. The quad ifin set up means you’re always ready to ride, and have plenty of control for tight turns. For longer paddles, the Wild has a US fin box, so you can drop in your favourite fin for straight-line tracking.
The Wild has plenty of handles for carrying and climbing back on after a wipeout! The bungee tie-downs at the front have grippy strips underneath, so your load stays in place. The kick pad on the tail locks your foot in for tail turns and surfing waves – whether standing waves on rivers, or on the sea.
What SUP North thinks
The Wild from Red Paddle Co is loads of fun. The shorter profile and quad ifins, set in a forward position, means that the board turns on a dime, while the nose rocker means the board never wants to pearl. For paddling distance it makes a great difference dropping in a centre us-box fin, so you won’t have to change paddle sides so often.
