A new series from Red Paddle Co the Red Lab, aimed to try and make every paddle experience event better. Here is a short clip to show how you can use the handle from your Red Paddle Co carry bag, to make transporting your board to the water even easier and more comfortable.

SUP Tuition Video #5 -  Improved Paddling! In this edition of the Sam Ross SUP Tuition Series, he shows us how to continue improving our stroke,  by focusing on the start of the stroke, ensure the blade is fully in the water before you draw the paddle backwards, making sure the paddle is vertical and ensuring you sink your weight into the stroke to get additional power.

Last week in Peru, Marie Buchanan did an amazing job at the ISA SUP World Championships. She finished an incredible 6th in the womans distance race and 5th in the women’s technical race.

She’s had been training hard on her Red Paddle Co 12’6 Race in the UK prior to the event. This was Marie’s first ever international event and the hard work paid off!

We are delighted to report that Marie Buchanan has just returned from the ISA SUP World Championships in Peru after coming 6th in the women’s distance race and 5th in the women’s technical race.

Marie achieved this amazing feat on a Red Paddle Co inflatable board, competing against full carbon race boards. Red Paddle Co’s mission is to produce boards that offer no compromise in performance, Marie’s achievements are testament to this. With reports of other competitors equipment being lost by the airlines or damaged in transport, the fact that Marie could carry her board with her meant she had no such worries.

Congrats Marie!

SUP Tuition Video #4 -  Basic Paddling! In this edition of the Sam Ross SUP Tuition Series, he shows us how to perform the basic paddle in easy to understand steps and also covers how to turn around!

SUP Tuition Video #3 – Standing Up. Now that Sam has taken you through Getting Started and Kneeling, its now time to tackle the most important part of SUP and getting you on your feet. Sam Ross SUP talks us through the most stable of way of standing up from being on your knees. This is a great video series for learning the basics of SUP and also some great paddling tips.
