Little gets the adrenaline going like paddleboarding down a furious, foamy river.
The Red Paddle Co 9’6” Wild is designed specifically for riders taking on the rapids. Based on input from experienced white water paddlers, we’ve given it a shape that offers extreme durability and extreme performance. Its high sides allow it to break in and out of the river flow, and it’s got a pronounced rocker so it rides out the bumps.
It’s also got multiple grab handles for safety and control, and a quad-iFin setup that means you don’t get the ‘double bump’ common to three-fin setups when you go over rocks. We’ve made those fins low-profile to avoid hang-ups in shallow sections, and because no two rivers are the same, we’ve designed them so they can be shaped to suit your riding style and the conditions.
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.
