With the 2019 Red Paddle Co 10'7 WindSUP RIDE you can combine the best of two world’s; inflatable paddleboarding and windsurfing. On its own the Red Paddle Co 10'7 Wind SUP is an excellent paddleboard – stable with excellent tracking and genuinely rewarding to paddle. However, with the addition a windsurfing rig and centre fin, the 10’7 WindSUP is transformed into a fully functioning windsurfer that genuinely performs and goes upwind.
Red Paddle Co 10'7 WindSUP has two important additions that make this already superb paddleboard even more versatile; a dedicated universal joint (UJ) female thread plate which is integral to the board and two US fin boxes for removable single deep fins (both supplied); one acting as a centre board when windsurfing and the other providing tracking all of the time. For just an extra £50 you get a Red Paddle Co inflatable paddleboard which can also be converted easily to a windsurf board that everyone can enjoy.
What makes Red Paddle Co inflatable SUP boards unique is their MSL fusion composite and airtight coating. MSL – otherwise known as ‘Mono-Structural Laminate’ - fuses a second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at the raw material stage, removing hand gluing errors. This high-tech industrial process also saves almost 2kg in weight and makes the boards stiffer at lower pressures, when compared to other brands.
As a package, the 2019 Red Paddle Co 10'7 WindSUP is also the most complete we offer, as it includes not only the inflatable paddleboard that has well thought out features like carrying handles, female thread for a RAM mount or Railblaza mounting system, a D ring on the front nose section, leash fixing point, female thread for windsurf rig and two removable US surf fins.

The Red Paddle Co WindSUP Rig Pack was born from Red Paddle Co’s ongoing relationship with a number of training centres and premium holiday providers such as Sunsail and Neilson. The result is a highly durable package which is rewarding to use while offering a smooth learning curve for those new to the sport.
The lightweight yet durable film sail with its large window is cut fairly flat and has two ¾ length battens. This ensures the sail is light and responsive to handle, perfect for young and old. Also thanks to stitch protection at all of the wear points on the sail, the Red Paddle Co WindSURF Rig Package is ensured a long life.
The 1.5m Rig Package is supplied with a two piece alloy mast for light weight while the remaining sizes include the extremely durable two piece Epoxy mast. Lightweight monocoque booms are provided with all of the packages, as are a universal mast base to fit standard & RDM masts. Red Paddle Co have also included a mechanical universal joint to secure the rig to the threaded fixing point in your inflatable paddle board and an up haul for raising and lowering the rig. Finally everything fits in a purpose made hard wearing foil bag with padded handle and Red Paddle Co branding. To see how small the Red Paddle Co WindSUP Rig packs down - please click here
We often get asked 'What size WindSUP rig do I need?', so we thought we give you a few pointers on how to make your choice. The biggest consideration when selecting your WindSUP rig is who will be using it as the persons using it most need to be able to easily raise and lower the rig in and out of the water. So for a child of say around 8-12 years of age we would recommend the 1.5m, while a child of 13-15 years old or small lady will manage a 2.5m rig package. The 3.5m rig package is our best-selling size as it works well for the largest range of users such as those in their novice to intermediate mid-teens, ladies and gentleman. For guys of around 90kgs + we would recommend a 4.5m rig package, however we only find this in rare cases as it narrows the list of those able to use the WindSUP a little too much. If you would like to discuss your requirements in more detail, then please call or email us as we are happy to help.
