Stand Up Paddleboarding SUP Products from the NZ Paddle Company

Their boards inflate to such a high pressure (way beyond the competition), that they perform really well - many people now actually prefer them to solid boards. Inflatable boards were originally designed simply to solve the problems of storage space and transportation. Ding proof and fool proof, the Red Air boards are the best inflatable boards on the market by far.


SUP Clothing & Wetsuits

Indeed, we're particularly proud of our SUP wetsuits, which just kick butt as the best suit going for SUP use, because they're so damn functional (and a brilliant price too!). We also really rate the watersports sun hats, which are just brilliantly efficient for keeping you comfortable in bright sun, even when out in the surf.


Long sleeve rash guard

A quality long sleeve rash guard is ideal for beach/water wear, offering SPF 50+ protection from the summer sun and harmful UV rays. Our Suwaka rashies are available in S, M, L & XL sizes for men and women, are built with nylon and lycra to give. Mens rash vest sizes available in blue or red. Womens sizes all in the light blue colour.


Suwaka Wetsuits

So while you often need more than just a pair of boardies, a full suit is a pain; there's that awful chafe of neoprene against neoprene on each paddle stroke. The suits are constructed from high quality neoprene, with glued and stitched overlock seams. A wetsuit designed specifically for stand up paddleboarding. Lots of excellent features to maximise your SUP enjoyment. Chafe-free arm holes - no seams anywhere to rub.


Red Air Eleven Inflatable Paddleboard

Full EVA deck for under foot comfort and three moulded fins finish off this fantastic family cruiser, that's super durable and still small enough to be packed away in a small bag at the end of the session. We know that for many people, the idea that an inflatable board can offer proper paddleboard performance is incredibly hard to believe, and might seem like a very risky gamble to buy online.


Red Air NineFour Inflatable Paddleboard

We know that for many people, the idea that an inflatable board can offer proper paddleboard performance is incredibly hard to believe, and might seem like a very risky gamble to buy online. You'll catch pretty much anything on it due to the extra volume, and it's got enough curve in the rocker and plan shape to be great fun for throwing around.
