The patented 9' 6'' Compact folds down to half the size of a conventional inflatable paddle board, making it the most transportable SUP board on the planet.

Ideal for all-round paddlers who want a smaller board without compromising on performance. Our exclusive MSL PACT material made from specially produced, high density drop stitch allows us to make a board that easily folds in half before being rolled up, whilst still maintaining industry leading stiffness and durability.

  • Ultra-packable: the world’s smallest all-round SUP package, for ultimate portability.
  • Versatile: do-it-all design, inspired by our award-winning 10'6" Ride all-rounder.
  • Comfortable: a 32" wide design and rounded nose profile provide stability in all conditions.
  • All-round: great for novices, improvers, recreational or occasional paddlers up to 95kg.

At Red, sustainability isn’t just marketing hype – it’s at the core of what we do. As a certified B Corp ( 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 an extremely low warranty rate below 0.5%. Maximising 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. 

Our manufacturing processes, like turning the offcuts from our EVA deckpads into keyrings, aim for zero waste too, reflecting our commitment to low-impact resource selection. 

How to store your board 

Before storing, rinse all equipment in fresh water and let it dry completely. 

To pack away, lay the deflated board deck-up and place the pump across the nose, leaving enough room to wrap the board over. Roll tightly, then secure with the strap. Use the backpack’s internal strap to secure the board inside. 

Store your board in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight. If keeping it rolled up, avoid excess pressure on the straps. If space allows, it’s best to store the pump separately. 

You can also leave your board inflated, ideally kept on a flat surface or upright – but do reduce the board’s pressure to below 15psi if not in use for a while.

MSL®1000 is the pinnacle in dropstitch technology, at 1KG lighter per square meter than MSL, it utilises next generation weave technology and a super-fine fibre matrix to create a highly malleable, featherlight product.

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. 

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.
