Built for adventurous travellers wanting top-end touring capability in a supremely portable package, this full-sized explorer fits into a half-size backpack. Inspired by our acclaimed Voyager range, the 12'0" Compact inflatable paddleboard is great for getaways: maximum performance, minimised...

With a generous 32" width and 302L of volume, it easily carries heavier loads and is happy in a broad range of water states. The drawn-out touring shape is perfect for longer paddles, wherever the spirit takes you.

Constructed in our high-density MSL® PACT™ material reinforced with quad stringers, RSS battens boost inflated rigidity by a further 30%. Yet without compromising stiffness or durability, when deflated the 12'0" Compact folds in half and rolls up into our 90L Compact Backpack.

The 12'0" Compact packs down with a five-piece adjustable carbon paddle and removable Click Fin system for hassle-free storage and travel, complete with Titan II pump, coiled leash and all the high-end accessories Red are renowned for.



MSL®1000: Compact Performance. 

MSL®1000 is the pinnacle in dropstitch technology, at 1KG lighter per square meter than MSL, it utilises next generation weave technology and a super-fine fibre matrix to create a highly malleable, featherlight product.

What is MSL®? Safe. Stiff. Durable. 

Monocoque Structural Laminate or MSL® is the world’s leading drop-stitch material. Exclusive to Red Paddle Co boards, it’s made to our exact specifications. 

Monocoque: meaning the coating is integral to the structure. MSL® drop-stitch technology integrates a highly durable, reinforced coating to the ultra-high-definition weave to form an inseparable base layer. 

Structural: the high-tensile drop-stitch fibres are designed to withstand pressures in excess of 22psi, meaning Red boards can be inflated to provide unrivalled stiffness and confidence, no matter the rider weight or prevailing conditions. 

Laminate: the reinforced composite coating is bonded to the textile core using machine welding that applies heat and pressure to the inner PVC layer, saving over 2kg of adhesives and reducing cosmetic and safety concerns. Produced under low tension, this process creates a torsional stiffening effect when the boards are inflated, making MSL® stiffer at lower pressures.
