The 2023 Red Paddle Co 10’6 Ride Purple is an alternatively colored version of Red’s most popular all-around board, the 10’6 Ride. It performs well in a wide variety of paddling situations, including flatwater cruising, coastal paddling, surfing, and moving rivers. The 32” width and ample nose and tail give it more than enough stability for most riders and its 10’6 length goes perfectly with its width to strike the right balance of speed and maneuverability. The rocker at the nose is moderate, enough to clear choppy water, but not so high as to slow down the board excessively. The base package includes the board, the Red Paddle Co rolling backpack, the Titan II hand pump, and a phone case.
2023 design includes dual permanent 4.5” fins arranged in a symmetric twin fin setup (modified from the previous 3-fin thruster setup pre 2021), flat bungee straps and a bag with a removable strap system.
The ERS 12VDC 20PSI Electrical Pump will inflate this board to 15PSI in approximately 9 minutes.

A versatile all-around board with a proven mix of stability and glide that works for a wide range of rider heights and weights. The permanent two-fin setup introduced in 2021 gives the board a loose quick-turning feel and can help you make quicker turns on small waves, though the board is designed mostly for flat water. The diamond texture on the rear section of the deck pad provides a little extra traction for rear foot maneuvers. If you want a fun board, the Ride SE is a solid all around option to consider.
