The 9' 6'' Compact from Red Paddle is one of the most transportable SUP boards on the planet. Whether travelling by foot, bike, or public transport, you'll love how convenient it is transporting this board in a backpack. Imagine how liberated you'll feel leaving your stuffy office, throwing on your Compact backpack and heading out towards the open sea or local river.
Ten years in the making, this revolutionary board is a step forward in what an inflatable board can be. It's a full-sized SUP that folds down to half the size of a conventional inflatable paddle board. The design for our 9' 6'' Compact is based on our award-winning 10'6″ MSL Ride. It provides the perfect blend of stability and manoeuvrability, allowing you to make the most of any location and any conditions.
A new look for our flagship Compact range, with a soft grey and cyan drop stitch and a new split deckpad. This allows for water to run off more effectively and improves the 'packability' of the board. It allows the board to fold on the hinge, make it easier to fold and roll.
Packed full of handy features and innovations, this board is ultra-practical for people who are short on storage space, or who want to transport a board easily. In developing this board, Red Paddle Co created a new weaving process that uses an extra-high-tensile thread matrix. The board has a super-strong but supple outer layer that can be packed away neatly in its Compact backpack. The ergonomic tubular handles on the Compact gives a cushioned, comfy grip when carrying your board.
Now with a new and improved cargo system made up of three adjustable bungee straps. The bottom two straps are closer together, making it easier to store smaller kit items. A twin d-ring locking system allows easy adjustment and release and the small loop is ideal for water bottle storage. A reinforced cargo point so you can strap on enough cargo for any adventure.
MSL is recognised as the industry’s leading construction process and is exclusive to Red Paddle Co. We are the only inflatable brand in the world that produces our boards in our own, private facility meaning no other board comes close.
The difference is in the detail. By looking at all of the individual elements of drop stitch we have been able to develop a refined process to improve all aspects of board production.
WEIGHT-SAVING BUT STABLE

THE COMPACT backpack is highly engineered to offer unique levels of adjustability and comfort, plus incredible shoulder and back support.
We think it’s the most highly engineered SUP bag on the planet, and as it applies approximately 53% less downforce on the carrier’s lower back, you can travel for longer in comfort. With customisable lumbar support and adjustable height features, it’s suitable for almost any size of paddler. And it doesn’t stop there:
All these combine to make it a pleasure to carry, whether you’re on a short walk to the water or off on an epic adventure.
Dimensions: Height: 560mm | Width: 420mm | Depth: 320mm
The Titan II Pump is the world's first purpose-built, double chamber SUP pump. It's designed to cut the amount of time and effort it takes to inflate your board by half. Constant innovation has led to us testing the absolute boundaries of inflation technology and as such, we're confident that there's nothing quite like the Titan II pump on the market.
The Dual Cylinder system, combined with the Hi Flo handle means you are in complete control of the energy used to inflate your board. It puts the volume into your board faster and reduces the effort required to reach a higher pressure.
Creating a compact paddle was not an easy task, but we have found the perfect solution: a five piece paddle.
As a result, it packs away perfectly, but it is still adjustable with no compromise on the water.
Made of high-modulus carbon for extra rigidity, with a durable pure nylon blade.
The Nylon blade of the paddle is laser etched, with no printing, chemicals or transfers and produced with a single pure material. Meaning the design will stay on forever, resulting in no aesthetic implications.
Our new anti-twist adjustment system with 45 degree cut push-pin technology has resulted in our most compact paddle yet.
They use a simple click fin system with a secondary screw for added security. The two off set fin boxes themselves are also compatible with standard FCS fins, so you can customise the feel of your board on the water.
