Red Paddle Co 13’2” Voyager+ SUP

You’d be hard-pressed to find an iSUP better equipped for long-haul adventures than Red’s 13’2” Voyager+. High sides, large volume and narrower width make it a high-speed cruiser for experienced paddlers. It’s got a 6 point cargo tie-down system at the front and 4 point cargo tie-down system at the back for all your gear, and an extra-grippy traction pad to help keep your kit in place at the rear.

Like the 12’6” Voyager, it has RSS battens for increased stiffness and glide when loaded with gear,  and a removable FCS fin which slots into the fin box easily by hand, secured in place with a finger bolt. Five low-pro carry handles on the board make portaging easy and comfortable. The Red embossed diamond cut deck pad offers unrivalled grip so you can focus on paddling.

The 13’2″ Voyager+ also features a nose runner fin on the underside of the board to aid tracking in side winds, as well as two rear runner fins to cancel out ‘tail drift’ when the board is loaded. Paddling into headwinds is a lot more manageable on this board. And on a calm day, it knifes through the water like a quicksilver dream. The All Terrain backpack, new and improved this year, is included, as well as the industry-leading Titan dual-chamber pump, which roughly doubles the speed of inflation. And the Voyager+ comes fitted with three special fixings compatible with Railblaza and Ram Mounts products, enabling you to securely attach a mobile phone, action camera, your paddle when you’re taking a dip, or even a fishing rod. More details on everything here.
