The smallest of the Ride family is the 9’8” Ride, an inflatable SUP designed for all-round usage for lighter riders. You’ll get the best out of it if you’re under 70kg/155lb, but that doesn’t exclude heavier riders.
In fact, for heavier riders, the 9’8” makes a great surf shape. Key to the 9’8″ Ride’s versatility is its dimensions. It’s 787mm/31” wide and 100mm/3.93” thick, which makes it a stable but manoeuvrable board. It’s a great board for beginners, but because it’s been stiffened with our RSS battens, it delivers a fantastic experience for more advanced riders, too.
The 9’8” Ride also has a six-point cargo tie-down system to carry bags and clothing on longer journeys. As an inflatable board, it also packs down into our all-terrain backpack making it easy to transport and store. The Red embossed deck pad offers comfort and grip and a diamond cut rear section with raised kick pad provides even greater grip and stability when surfing or performing step back turns. Supplied with our Titan pump you can pump the board up to pressure and be on the water in half the time, with half the effort compared to other SUP pumps.
The board with all its accessories fit nicely into the bag with a total weight of 28 lbs/12 kg making a breeze to transport.
