12’6″ X 28″ ELITE PACKAGE

Designed for competitive types racing in the 12’6″ class

COMPETITIVE SUP RACING WITH THE ELITE RANGE

These inflatable SUPs are long and narrow, which means they are lightning-quick through the water but also very easy to manoeuvre, control, glide and ride. Being inflatable they pack-down and can be easily transported to races all over the world.

Despite its practicality, there’s no compromise on performance. All Elite boards feature unique innovations which can be found on Red Paddle Co boards: The patented Rocker Stiffening System or RSS for short, counters flex with two stiffening battens that are inserted into pockets on the side of the board; Forward Flex Control System (FFC) then stiffens the front section of the board using a carbon compression strut to remove flex that can be created in a race and channels this towards the back of the board increasing overall board speed. The two combined work together to create the fastest inflatable SUP’s currently available on the market.

The board also features double nose fins to aid tracking and displacing water from the deck of the board. The glass fibre centre fin supplied as standard gives the right amount of grip without adding drag, whilst the angled design prevents any debris from getting stuck on the fin. Multiple carry handles are included to provide fast entry and exit of the water and have been designed not to get in the way during racing. The diamond cut, Red embossed deck pad provides ultimate grip in control in all stages of a race.

The 28″ wide Elite is the perfect entry board to racing or those over 110kgs/240lbs, also if the majority of your racing is done on the open ocean then the stability offered by the 28″ Elite allows you to focus more on putting the power down than staying balanced. For more experienced paddlers, the narrower 12’6″ x 26″ Elite offers proven class winning performance in a wide variety of conditions.

Now it is time to pick your preferred paddle and complete your package. This board comes with an Alloy Paddle included as standard. You can easily upgrade to an alternative paddle based on your paddling style or preference below.

Alloy Paddle

The Alloy Nylon paddle is our entry-level paddle, but no less technical for it. The mid section of the paddle shaft is coated in soft-grip EVA adding comfort and grip without adding weight, and it has an ergonomic t-grip handle design which fits snuggly into the palm of your hand.

The medium sized nylon blade has been streamlined for low-impact paddling, with the right amount of flex to reduce paddler fatigue. The adjustable top section allows the paddle to be shared by multiple paddlers through an easy and robust push pin system, meaning the paddle can fit a range of paddler heights so you can share the SUP love with friends and family.

The Alloy Nylon paddle is a great starting point for those getting onto the water for the first time and comes at a great price point. For those looking for a slightly lighter paddler offering more performance then our Carbon paddles are fantastic paddles depending on budget.
