Red Paddle Co Compact 9’6” 2019
« on: May 12, 2019, 11:02:19 AM »
Interesting design. And I can imagine how this paddles in flat water. But has anyone tried to surf it? I’m not sure if the wide ass, double keel-type fins, and flat rocker would make it virtually unsurfable, except maybe for pushing kids into tiny foam rollers...?

Any hands-on surf experience of this board out there?

I'm a sucker for this kind of hype and think how cool it would be to have that board in the back of my truck.

Then I remember I still have a Red that popped like a balloon, sitting outside.

I think it’s unusual for a Red to pop.  Which board did you have?  What happened?

Yes, very unusual. Sadly it is a risk for any inflatable however, just as a few hard boards will delaminate. But Red are usually better than most at correcting problems, if they do occur.
