Red Paddle Bosa

Airstream searches every corner of the outdoor and camping world to find the coolest gear to feature in A-List. We often partner with brands and create affiliate relationships for the products featured here.

Our Airstreams® take us across all types of terrain for adventure – along dusty roads, up mountains, down valleys, and across deserts. Inevitably on your journeys, you’ll come across some beautiful blue space. Make the most of that shimmering lake, tranquil pond, or rolling ocean with Red Paddle Co.’s line of inflatable stand up paddle boards, or SUPs.

Stand up paddle boarding is a fun way to play in the water. Paddling a SUP gives you a full-body workout and gives you a surface-to-horizon view of your watery wonderland.

Whether you’re a neophyte or an old hand with SUPs, Red Paddle Co. has a board for you. Take the 10’6” Ride MSL, for example. Dubbed “The Swiss Army Knife of SUPs,” this 10’6″ board is well-suited for all skill levels and water conditions. In fact, it’s the world’s most popular inflatable SUP and continues to win industry and consumer awards.

The 10’6” Ride MSL SUP is designed to float and glide easily on flat water. It has just the right amount of curve in the tail and a progressive rocker through the front of the board, meaning it rides smoothly and predictably in surf. The board’s 4.7” thickness delivers increased stiffness without affecting ride and performance. The Ride also comes with practical cargo tie-downs and an embossed deck pad that offers comfort and grip. A diamond cut rear section provides even greater footing and stability when performing step back turns or during use in the surf.

An included Titan pump can inflate the Ride in half the time with half the effort of conventional pumps. The board also comes with an all-terrain backpack for easy storage, a repair kit, and a water-resistant phone case. Everything (including the board) packs down neatly to fit into the backpack, making transportation and storage oh-so-easy.

Red Paddle has been making inflatable SUPs since 2008. The concept for inflatable SUPs came about when Red Paddle Co-founder, John Hibbard, realized that an easy to transport inflatable board could make stand up paddle boarding better and more accessible. He was right. The folks at Red Paddle Co. believe that riding an inflatable shouldn’t mean compromise on quality, durability or design. This commitment comes through in all their boards, which are built for the ultimate in performance.
