12’6″ Race

Faster than you thought possible.

The Race is a fantastic board that will amaze you.The rocker line is designed to give fast glide and ride. The single nose fin helps tracking while the centre fin at the rear gives the right amount of grip without adding drag.

This board allows everyone to experience the speed of longer boards without needing the space to store one.

The Race comes fitted with our RSS system adding even more stiffness to this already stiff shape.

What’s in the box? Twelve Six Race comes complete with the best backpack in the business, a repair kit, RSS Battens, waterproof phone case and the 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.


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 >

Construction Exploded View

Thickness. Redefined.

The 12’6″ Race is 150mm thick. This Thickness is perfect for flat water paddling. It gives great stiffness and means the board floats high to reduce drag in racing conditions. Add the RSS system to the Race board and you have the stiffest board. Learn More >

Tune-ability. Your Choice.

The Red Race utilises a low profile US box fin system. This allows you to put in your favourite flat water fin. The board is supplied with a fin designed to work for straight line control. The Race also has a nose runner fin that keeps the board tracking straight while not increasing drag. Learn More >


Get carried away. Effortlessly.

After covering over 100,000 miles with our boards we had a really good idea of what was needed from the ultimate bag. Our all new bag has the most significant developments yet seen with inflatable board bags. It has 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. This bag truly is the ultimate solution for travel and storage. Learn More >

* For the ultimate in pumping efficiency we recommend buying an Ezee Pump HP to use once you have inflated the Twelve Six Race to 15psi with the Ezee Pump that is provided with the board. The Ezee Pump HP is available as an extra.
