If you’re in the 14’ race class, this is the inflatable race board to get. The Red Paddle Co 14’ x 25″ Elite is a machine built for speed.
At 14’ long and just 25″ wide, it has been shaped to cut through the water like a hot knife through butter. It rides high at 150mm thick, reducing drag, while double nose runner fins keep the board tracking straight without creating drag, a combination that lies at the heart of what makes this board so fast and so easy to control in race conditions. It’s also a great downwind board – it picks up swell and glides beautifully. All this in a board you can deflate, pack away and carry home in a backpack!
Our patented RSS system stiffens the board so there’s no flex, and the board comes with a built-in US Fin Box system, allowing you to adjust your fin to suit your style. The swept back design of the glass fibre fin prevents any debris from getting caught whilst paddling so you can focus on putting down the power.
Extra rigidity to triumph in extreme circumstances. Forward Flex Control or FFC is a patented innovation by Red Paddle Co that stiffens the front section of the board to remove the flex created in sprinting phases of a race and when paddling into waves. It also increases board speed to give you the competitive edge by channeling the energy to the back of the board. The system is made up of a carbon compression strut that works in combination with RSS to deliver a more rigid ride.

Why Choose Red Paddle Co
THE FUTURE IS FUSION.
MSL fusion composite and airtight coating, 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.
LESS PUMPING. MORE PADDLING.
We prefer spending our time paddling rather than pumping so we developed the Titan Pump. The Dual Cylinder system combined with the Hi Flo handle means you are in complete control of the time and energy required to inflate your board. It puts the volume into your board faster and reduces the effort required to reach a higher pressure.
GET CARRIED AWAY. EFFORTLESSLY.
Our bags were the first to include integrated wheels that make travelling through airports a pleasure. The hidden back pack system can be stowed when not in use and is super comfy when you need to put the board on your back. The front loading system makes packing and unpacking super simple.The internal straps make sure the board stays put while in transit.
INCREDIBLY STIFF. BY DESIGN.
We’re really proud of the Rocker Stiffening System, or RSS. It’s unique to Red Paddle Co – we designed and patented it to make some of our bigger, expert boards even stiffer to deliver greater performance. It works by slotting two stiffening battens into pockets that are individually laminated onto the side of the board. We’ve proved this makes the board up to 40 per cent stiffer.
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.
Making a board thicker will automatically make it stiffer but it will also affect the performance of the board. If a board is too thick it’s maneuverability and stability in the surf and on moving water will be compromised. We have worked with material manufacturers to produce our drop stitch material to exact thicknesses to allow us to make the stiffest boards while still maintaining the highest level of performance and allow the board to match the feel and performance of there hard board cousins.
FREE PHONE CASE.
We know how much people like to capture their SUP experiences to share later with their friends but not everyone can afford an expensive waterproof action camera. So we looked at the problem and recognised that the majority of people now have a mobile phone with an integrated camera so we decided to include a free waterproof phone case with every board so you can now never miss a moment without the fear of getting your phone wet!
