The Red Paddle Co Nine Six designed for All water.
The Red Nine Six is fast becoming an iconic board, sought after in all corners of the globe. We have designed this board to work in all conditions, from cruising up the river to picking up waves quickly and easily. It has a similar mid point and nose shape as the 10’6” and shares similar lines throughout. The deck pad and wide tail aids control in all situations. The Nine Six comes with our patented RSS system which gives unparalleled rigidity for an inflatable SUP, a true revolution in inflatable technology.
It’s the perfect board for expanding the whitewater river side of our sport.
We know from our testing that the wide nose adds stability and control on the river and opens up a new world of “skate park” style river riding – A whole new area to explore. Our New Zealand test crew are pushing the boundaries with this side of the sport. To see a video of them putting the boards through their paces click on the videos tab.
What’s in the box? The Nine Six comes complete with an awesome backpack, a repair kit, RSS Battens with Red Paddle Co Ezee pump* leaving you more time to paddle.
Incredibly stiff. By design.
By looking at how and where a board flexes we have developed and patented the Rocker Stiffening System (RSS) to increase rigidity. It works by inserting stiffening battens along the rails of the board. The battens then work against the downward force of the rider to produce a stiffer board by preventing flex – similar to how a stringer works on a hard board. The stiffening battens are removable for easy board rolling and can be stored in the carry bag for transportation to and from the water. Learn more >
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. Learn more >
Less Effort. More Pressure.
Just one inflation is all you need to understand the progress that we’ve made with our new High Pressure (HP) pump. Inflating a board over 15psi is now much, much easier. It’s more comfortable to use, requires less effort and still allows you go from backpack to beach in the shortest time possible. Learn more >
The Nine Six is 100mm thick. This thickness is perfect for boards with a surf orientation. The thinner rails make for better control on the wave face and while paddling out. Combined with the RSS system we are able to offer the stiffest boards in class with the best performance. Learn More >
We have tested every system currently available and even developed fin systems of our own to find the best solution. Nothing comes closeto 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.

Get carried away. Effortlessly.
To create a bag that was genuinely new we started again. The Red Paddle Co backpack is a completely redesigned transport and storage solution for your board. Internal load straps, super comfy back system and a front loading feature are just some of the things that take it from simple carry bag to a truly bespoke solution. Learn More >
* For the ultimate in pumping efficiency we recommend buying an Ezee Pump HP to use once you have inflated the board to 15psi with the Ezee Pump that is provided with the board. The Ezee Pump HP is available as an extra.
