Inflatable Revolution


Want the ultimate portable SUP solution?  Maybe an inflatable paddleboard package is the best solution for your life.  If you are space-challenged or have a vehicle without a roof rack, an inflatable board kit can be stored in the trunk or backseat with ease.

With new developments in construction, Red Paddle’s MSL Construction is lighter and stronger than ever. Inflatable boards are light to carry, easy to store, and the perfect solution for adventurous travelers and those who live in condos / apartments / VW Vans but still want a good performing board.

Just add in a 3-Piece Travel Paddle and you are all set – >

What about the thickness of a board?

  • 4″ thick boards are best for lightweight paddlers and perform better in the surf
  • 4.75″ to 6″ thick boards offer more flotation, stiffness and the ability handle more weight (think gear, kids, dogs, etc.)

We have a wide range of inflatables to demo and for sale

  • Red Paddle – 9’6, 10’6, 11′, 12’6  (up to 25psi)
  • Starboard Astros – 9′, 10′, 10’5, 11’2, 11’6, 12’6, 14′ (up to 18psi)
  • Twin Fish – 10’7, 11′, 12’6 (up to 18psi)

Red Paddle’s 11′ Sport is possibly the lightest inflatable – a mere 20 lbs

Safe and Secure


Whether you are planning to start paddling in early spring or later in the fall, we have a few things you may need.  Here’s the top 5 products to keep you and your board safe and secure.

Locking Straps & Locks: Kanulock straps can be used on the top of your vehicle racks or other places where you can lock up your board.  They include two sets of keys and come in a variety of lengths.  Simple and easy to use.  Or use a Dockslock to lock up your board with a cable.

  • Kanulock Locking Straps – Available in variety of lengths for 1,2, or more boards
  • DocksLock – Connects to the leash plug on your board with a long cable.

Booties and Gloves:
Keep your feet warm while paddling on those cooler days in the fall, winter and spring.  5mm thick booties are good for early Fall paddling but the 7mm thick boots would keep you warm through late Fall and Winter.  A warm pair of gloves are flexible enough to get good grip on your paddle.  Use them for windier or wetter days on the water. Choose from a variety of sizes from Xcel.

  • Xcel ‘Infinity’ Series – Warmest, driest and most flexible
  • Xcel ‘Xplorer Series’ – Basic level to keep you dry and warm

SUP Board Bags: Storing and traveling with your board inside a Board Bag will keep it away from the elements (wind, rain, heat, flying rocks).  Great for traveling and storage.
– > Available in a variety of styles and prices:

  • Kalavida 10’8 (fits most all-rounders and 10’6 compact touring boards)
  • Kalavida 11’2 (fits most all-rounders under 11’4 and some 11’6 compact touring boards)
  • FCS 12’6 and 14′ Bags – (Best fit for most performance and touring boards)
  • Various brand board bags – For the perfect fit.

Storage Racks: Store your board in the garage, house or wherever you have space.  Keeps it way from getting bumped, scratched, etc.

  • Ceiling (U-shape)
  • Elbow (Angle Wall)
  • Rack style (L-shape)


Paddling Clothing: Starboard has just released a range of paddling tops and suits for anyone looking to keep paddling through the Fall and Winter.  They include the new ‘All-Star’ Suit pictured below.

You are so Rogue…


Rogue returns to the forefront of SUP Design with their brand new 2015 quiver. Building on the success of their popular All-Water line, a new Blue and Pink series is now available alongside their classics line. Their performance boards (racing and touring) feature a quiver of updated shapes, new graphics and tons of useful features.  New for 2015, Rogue is now offering select models in their new R9 construction making them even more affordable.


All-Waters -Rogue has cornered that part of the market with their impressive line of graphic-drenched All-Water boards.  Notably the first SUP company to veer away from centered logos and traditional longboard lines, Rogue has been the innovator and one look at their boards will tell the story.  The best part is they back it up with industry-leading construction all at a reasonable price.  Available in 102′, 10’8′ and 11’2′ lengths.

Touring Series (11’4″ & 12’6) – Built to suit paddlers who want the speed and glide of a displacement style hull (think smooth and fast) yet portable enough for anyone to load without a struggle. It includes built-in tie-downs for packing gear on the front and back.

Utility SeriesLooking for a stable board for both flatwater and surf? The Tesoro line offers up both and although they’ve kept the look on the conservative side, the extra width makes them attractive to newbies and intermediate paddlers.

R1 Race (12’6) and Vandal (14′) – Coming off yet another successful test at the 2014 Battle of the Paddle, they have finally put their race boards into production and they rank among the flashiest on the market.  At around 26lbs, the 12’6 stock-class racer is a dialed production board with carbon inlay and it’s bigger brother, the 14′ R1 Race version is a stealth flatwater flyer.
