The all new Red Paddle Co Compact 9’6” inflatable paddleboard has arrived. Ultra-light weight at just 8.5kg, the 9’6 Compact has been designed from the ground up to be the most portable inflatable SUP ever made. The result when packed is almost half the size of any other Red Paddle Co iSUP.  Yet this is the Red Paddle Co Compact - so you know performance is not going to be compromised. With PACT Technology, a unique double stitch weave core that takes 20 PSI, a clip-less fins, a five piece Carbon Nylon paddle and brand new hi-denier ergonomic back pack – the Red Paddle Co Compact 9’6” is half the size, double the adventure

The Red Paddle Co Compact 9’6” is the future of inflatable paddleboards. A bold statement we know but Red Paddle Co earned their place as the most popular inflatable paddleboard manufacturer in the world through innovation, dedication and sheer hard work. Red Paddle Co originated the inflatable paddleboard market and have been at the forefront of its development, working tirelessly for the last 10 years to offer the very best inflatable SUP’s available.

The Compact 9’6 from Red Paddle Co is the embodiment of this drive and determination to produce the most authentic paddleboard experience while remaining the most portable and high quality inflatable paddleboard available.

Everything about the Red Paddle Co 9’6” has been designed to make it as portable as possible. With the introduction of Red Paddle Co’s new PACT Technology, the Compact 9’6 can be packed to half the size of the best selling Red Paddle Co 10’6 Ride. With removable and highly durable fins (made from the same robust material at Red Paddle Co’s proven iFin system) , the 9’6” x 32” wide Compact will perform for beginner to the most experienced paddler. This new Click Fin system is also fully compatible with FCS fins systems, letting you customise and tune your Red Paddle Co 9'6" Compact.

This reduced board size when deflated meant a smaller board bag was needed. So Red Paddle Co went back to the drawing board and developed their most ergonomic back pack ever – the Red Paddle Co Hi-Denier Compact board bag which measures just 560mm high! Incredibly comfy, durable and extremely portable this new board bag is almost as sensational as the Compact 9’6” board itself – best of all this bag also houses the famous Red Paddle Co Titan Pump.

Yet the innovation did not stop there… a smaller more portable package demanded a smaller paddle. So Red Paddle Co have developed a unique 5 piece Carbon Nylon paddle. Taking their proven nylon paddle blade, they have created a threaded carbon shaft that still offers a great range of adjust-ability but that can now be stored with ease alongside the Compact 9’6” in the Hi-Denier Compact board bag.

  • Red Paddle Co 9'6" Compact inflatable paddleboard
  • Red Paddle Co Titan Pump

What pressure does a Red Paddle Co paddleboard take?

Red Paddle Co take one of, if not the, highest pressures on the market - 18 - 20PSI with ease.

As a SUP inflatable, pressure is key to the overall experience, as the higher the pressure, the more rigid the paddleboard. The more rigid the paddleboard, the more stable and the better the glide is. Ultimately all a good inflatable paddleboard should be trying to do is mimmick the qualities of a composite or solid SUP. In order to do rigidity is key and this is what Red Paddle Co are famed for.

Whats the difference between the Fanatic inflatable sup models ie; Pure Air, Fly Air and Premium Fly Air?

Thank you for the question - it is one we get a lot.

Let's take three Fanatic inflatable paddleboards which are the same model - shape, size, thickness - the Fanatic 10'4. The 10' Fanatic is the best selling Fanatic inflatable SUP as well as available in all three constructions - Pure Air, Fly Air and Premium Fly Air.

The reason for the three constructions is that it enables Fanatic to build for three different price points.
