What’s your Ride? – Choose the board that best fits your desired usage and body weight.
As the sport has progressed we have seen the need for a Ride style board for differing weight paddlers. This is why we developed the three sizes that make up the Ride family.
Rider Weight: Up to 120kg/265lb
The 10’8” Ride - Perfect for bigger riders or the family paddler who wants to carry passengers. Super-stable, the 10’8” Ride is an easy ride.
The 10’8” Ride is 120mm thick.This increases stiffness while not affecting the ride and performance of these iconic boards.The 120mm thickness means that the rider can obtain greater stiffness at lower pressure.The 120mm board is more than 40% stiffer than a standard 100mm board at the same pressure.
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating New for 2017, MSL 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.
The 2017 10'8 also features a RAM mount on the nose.
THE BEST DESIGN. FOR THE BEST PERFORMANCE.
Tec Air is not a product, it’s a process. We looked at how we built boards, and by focusing in on the key areas of the production process, we have been able to refine each process to make the very best boards. All Red Paddle Co boards are built using our Tec Air specification to ensure the best possible build quality. Our strength comes from the inside.
The Ten Eight is 120mm thick. This thickness is exclusive to Red Paddle Co and is the perfect combination of stiffness and control for all round shapes. Combined with our inflatable specific nose and tail designs we have been able to produce the stiffest boards for this size. 120mm allows the rider to keep a low centre of gravity while achieving exceptional stiffness.

We have tested every system currently available and even developed fin systems of our own to find the best solution. Nothing comes close to our tried and tested iFin system on our allround boards. Zero warranty requests since we started using the system mean that we remain confident that it is the best option. No tools, replacements or spares are needed for the iFin system – it won’t fail.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
The Ten Eight comes complete with an awesome backpack, a repair kit and the Titan Co pump, which makes inflation to 15-20psi really easy, leaving you more time to paddle.
