Red Paddle Co wins Euro SUPA Surf title with new surf design – The Whip

Red Paddle Co - The Whip

Xavi Masdevall of Spain has had a fantastic European SUP surf champs, taking the win in the Inflatable division. The conditions were near perfect with 3ft-4ft clean swell peeling off the sand bars at Cantabria in northern Spain.

Xavi was riding the 2016 Red Paddle Co ‘The Whip’ – the 8’10” shape is the latest design innovation to come from the team at Red Paddle Co.

John Hibbard Red Paddle Co founder explains more, “We’ll done and thank you Xavi! This is a fantastic result for all involved. The Whip is the result of 6 years of shape development. We’ve always said you can’t just copy a hard board shape, as inflatable boards just don’t react in the same way. The lack of thin rails mean we have to find other solutions to generate performance. The Whip’s secret is in it’s plan shape and fin set up as well as our patented RSS System, which allows us to keep the board at 4″ thick and not loose stiffness – something that is only possible with the RSS system.”

The Whip also utilises our game changing new MSL material that reduces the weight of the boards by up to 2kgs without reducing stiffness – a first in inflatable design.

The 2016 Red Paddle Co range, including The Whip will be launched on November 1st.
