We’re always excited to try the latest innovations in stand up paddle boarding, and this is one of the biggest, in a small package!

The 9’6 Compact from Red Paddle Co is set to revolutionise the possibilities for transporting and paddling an inflatable SUP board. It packs down into a backpack almost half the size of a regular Red Paddle Co bag, and even includes a 5 piece carbon paddle. The board is super light and made from a brand new dropstitch material that Red Paddle Co call ‘Pact MSL’. We’ve never seen anything like it, but wouldn’t expect anything less from the world’s biggest inflatable SUP brand!

In this video you can see exactly what you get in the new Compact iSUP package, an overview of the board’s features and how it packs into the bag. Next we’ll be getting the Compact on the water to see how it paddles – more on that soon! If you’d like any more information or you’d like to try the board give us a shout via email or facebook message.
