Perfect for smaller paddlers, the 9'8" Ride inflatable paddleboard is a versatile, stable all-rounder for lightweight beginners and improvers in a wide range of conditions. This classic shape also suits heavier, more experienced paddlers looking to get into surf. A rounded nose and 31" of width offers a smooth, predictable ride, whatever the water state.

Constructed in our exclusive high-density MSL® drop-stitch, the 9'8" Ride is exceptionally durable and super-stiff at a reduced thickness of 4". Add our patented RSS battens and that rigidity increases by almost a third. So with a volume of 186L, it can comfortably accommodate paddlers up to 90kg.

The high-traction deckpad provides a secure footing in all conditions, three super-soft handles make carrying comfortable and the adjustable cargo system adapts to most payloads. All Rides come fully equipped with a choice of paddle, a coiled leash, All-Terrain Backpack, repair kit, waterproof phone case, and 5-year warranty.


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.
