Our manufacturing processes, like turning the offcuts from our EVA deckpads into keyrings, aim for zero waste too, reflecting our commitment to low-impact resource selection. 

Care.

How to store your board 

Before storing, rinse all equipment in fresh water and let it dry completely. 

To pack away, lay the deflated board deck-up and place the pump across the nose, leaving enough room to wrap the board over. Roll tightly, then secure with the strap. Use the backpack’s internal strap to secure the board inside. 

Store your board in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight. If keeping it rolled up, avoid excess pressure on the straps. If space allows, it’s best to store the pump separately. 

You can also leave your board inflated, ideally kept on a flat surface...

You can also leave your board inflated, ideally kept on a flat surface or upright – but do reduce the board’s pressure to below 15psi if not in use for a while.

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: 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.

Great compact paddle board

Recently bought the Compact 9'6" as an upgrade to my well used Ride 10'6" (purchased 2012!!!). We are seasoned paddle boarders and regularly paddle in UK on both Open Water and Loughs, we also take our iSUP's on holiday with us to Fuerteventura. As an 86Kg paddler this iSUP was recommended as a suitable board for Sup Surfing and all round use. Last week we took our boards to Lough Erne to test the new Compact 9'6" prior to our trip to Fuerteventura and riding the waves. The weather whilst on Lough Erne was mixed (Wind, Rain & Sunshine!!) and the board performed well in these conditions with the help of the removal slightly larger fins. The structure and design of the Compact is really suitable to our travel needs, tough and durable with all equipment being stored within the shorter travel back pack. The new design and style is really appealing to the eye and I love it (as you can see from the pics lol). Although the price is well above what most people would spend it really is worth the price and you get exactly what you pay for.
