Red Paddle Co Sport 11ft 3 - HT Purple
The Sport range allows paddler the potential to paddle further faster.
In terms of paddle efficiency the Sport 11'3" x 32" is a step up from the Ride range of boards. The outline of the board provides a longer narrower nose that will glide through the water with ease. In addition to the nose profile is a speed release tail which encourages water away from the rear of the board, great for reducing drag. Stiffness is improved with the addition of the RSS batons. These bright orange plastic bands are fitted to the rails during inflation and make the standing area of the board more solid which in turn provides more responsive paddling experience.
On the deck of the board you will find some well placed carrying handles, one on the nose, one at the tail and one in the centre. The ergonomically designed handles allow for easy grip and comfortable carrying. The handle at the nose incorporates a mount for accessories such as cameras or GPS's.
In front of the standing area you will find the cargo carrying area. Bags are secured by means of 3 elasticated straps. The straps can easily be removed if required leaving the fixed D rings on the board deck. The D rings also allow for easy fitting of the Red Original deck bag. The strap closeset to the paddler also has a small section designed as a dedicated water bottle holder.
This board comes with the ATB back pack, a step forward in board storage and carrying. The wheels have been beefed up and fitted on the opposite side of the bag which means the straps are less likely to snag. Thanks to some clever design improvements you can now strip the shoulder carrying straps off the bag and use them to carry the board, pump and paddle. This makes the idea of paddling your board home after jumping on public transport or wandering off to a remote paddling venue much easier as you have less to carry once the board is inflated and you're on the water.
At Snowdonia Watersports we have used Red Paddle Co boards for many years. We know they are extremely reliable and can handle the day to day bumps and scrapes inflicted by rental customers.
