Travelling round the world with a surf SUP isn’t easy. First of all, they’re huge and they don’t mix well with airports or airplanes. And there’s always the risk your board will get dinged in transit. Annoying.
The solution is this, the 8’10” The Whip, a surf SUP you can throw in a bag and take all over the world as if it were just any other backpack. Like every Red Paddle Co board, it’s extremely durable and has been tested to destruction (actually, even after we drove over one of our boards in a tractor, it still worked just fine), making it the perfect travel surf SUP. It’s got a narrow tail, a removable, adjustable fin and Red Paddle Co’s patented RSS batten system, which makes it super-stiff for maximum manoeuvrability.
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.
