The idea with the Ride family has always been to make standup paddleboarding as accessible as possible – anyone can have a go.
The XL Ride is a different take on the idea. Now everyone can have a go – at the same time. At 17’ long and 60” wide, the Ride XL is designed to carry not one, but a group of riders (and the dog, too). It’s fun, sociable and great exercise, and we’re already seeing people racing it.
Technically, the XL Ride is an extension of its sister Ride boards. It has a wide deck and tail so it’s nice and stable, even when you’ve got eight people on it. And it has four valves so four people can inflate it at the same time, and multiple grab handles so the group can carry it together.
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating involves fusing a second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at the raw material stage, removing hand gluing errors. The high-tech industrial process also saves almost 2kg in weight and makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures.
