While some inflatable boards flex uncontrollably in the surf we know how to build just the right amount of curve into the plan shape to create a stiff board. The 10’6″ is 120mm/4.72″ thick. This increases stiffness while not affecting the ride and performance of this iconic board. The Ten Six holds firm and allows you to pick your line across even the smallest of waves.
Fin placement and rocker lines are the key ingredients that turn our boards from being ordinary into something that you want to ride again and again.
What’s in the box? The Ten Six comes complete with an awesome backpack, a repair kit and the Red Paddle Co HP Ezee pump, which makes inflation to 15-20psi really easy, leaving you more time to paddle
The best design. For the best performance.
Tec Air is not a product, it’s a process. We looked at how we built boards, and by focusing in on the key areas of the production process, we have been able to refine each process to make the very best boards. All Red Paddle Co boards are built using our Tec Air specification to ensure the best possible build quality. Our strength comes from the inside
Less Effort. More Pressure.
Just one inflation is all you need to understand the progress that we’ve made with our new High Pressure (HP) pump. Inflating a board over 15psi is now much, much easier. It’s more comfortable to use, requires less effort and still allows you go from backpack to beach in the shortest time possible
The Ten Six is 120mm thick. This thickness is exclusive to Red Paddle Co and is the perfect combination of stiffness and control for all round shapes. Combined with our inflatable specific nose and tail designs we have been able to produce the stiffest boards for this size. 120mm allows the rider to keep a low centre of gravity while achieving exceptional stiffness
We have tested every system currently available and even developed fin systems of our own to find the best solution. Nothing comes close to our tried and tested iFin system on our allround boards. Zero warranty requests since we started using the system mean that we remain confident that it is the best option. No tools, replacements or spares are needed for the iFin system – it won’t fail
Get carried away. Effortlessly.
After covering over 100,000 miles with our boards we had a really good idea of what was needed from the ultimate bag.Our all new bag has the most significant developments yet seen with inflatable board bags. It has integrated wheels that make travelling through airports a pleasure.The hidden back pack system can be stowed when not in use and is super comfy when you need to put the board on your back.The front loading system makes packing and unpacking super simple.The internal straps make sure the board stays put while in transit.This bag truly is the ultimate solution for travel and storage
Have you considered a paddle? The Red 3 Piece Adjustable Paddle would be perfect and will easily fit in to the backpack
