On average it takes us 72 hours to make each and every Red Paddle Co board. Such is our dedication to detail all products, where possible are designed for disassembly using pure materials to allow for ongoing maintenance and improved recyclability.
HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR PUMP
HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR PUMPWe have designed our pumps to be simple to use and as maintenance free as possible, but if you do need to maintain your pump, this is how to do it.
HOW TO FIT YOUR RSS BATTENS
HOW TO FIT YOUR RSS BATTENSBy looking at how and where a board flexes we have developed and patented the Rocker Stiffening System (RSS) to increase rigidity by up to 40%. 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.
We have tested every system currently available and even developed fin systems of our own to find the best solution. As a result we have employed two separate systems depending on the use of the board so that you get an authentic paddle boarding experience every time but with the ultimate convenience.
