Review Red Paddle Co 9'6'' Compact

Review Red Paddle Compact

Last autumn Red Paddle Co told about an important announcement in its range. All the people around the world of SUP was on attention to this newness, because Red Paddle Co maybe is the brand who makes the best inflatable boards in the world and we were excited to know more about this announcement. The brand put a lot of money and effort season by season in its I+D (investigation & development) department for improving and innovate in SUP inflatable technology to make the best products.

Finally, the Red Paddle Co staff revealed the secret and they presented the new and revolutionary Red Paddle Co Compact 9’6”. We must confess that our first thought about the board was -ok, a new board, what’s the special thing?!- And now, that we know it better, we can say that the whole board is really special, because it is the first inflatable board that you can bend occupying the half of the space of the regular inflatable boards.

What's Surfskate?

 Since a couple of years more than less, we are watching in the streets new skateboards that slide different as the classic ones. Also, they are wider, with an almost plain tail and no elevation in the nose, these boards are called surfskates. In the last half year, the number of this type of boards has grown strongly because they are really funny. The reason is clear, surfskates are boards ready for real surfing the streets

Surfskate is a variant of classical skateboarding. It shares the essence to go on a board with wheels, but they are very different in the way how they react with the asphalt and the behavior. If a classical skater rides on a surfskates, he or she will say to us that the boards don't seem like one to the other. Visually they share similar features in a first view but riding both, we will find a big difference. The classical skateboard has the main point on the tail, where the skater kicks to make the tricks, so the rear foot is who has the main performance. With the surfskate, the front foot becomes the main one becasue the front truck is where the action and power is made to move the board.
