RED AIR RENTAL EQUIPMENT
The standard Red Air Rental package consists of the following items. Click on each bar for the full description.
There are four different models of Red Air available. Each board comes with a purpose-designed pump which allows the board to be inflated quickly and without too much effort. (You can inflate them fully in about 4 minutes, but if that sounds like too much effort, grab yourself the optional 12v compressor (see accessories).) There is also a repair kit, and a rucksack for carrying it all in.

The boards also have some extra configuration, above and beyond what comes on the board as standard. Each also includes an extra fixing point on the bow, so that the board can be tied behind a boat, and the larger sizes also include extra fixing points on the bow and stern, for carrying extra cargo.

The 3 piece SUP paddle features a smooth-finished, warm-to-the-touch fiberglass shaft, and a nylon blade that delivers easily accessible power. The length adjustment offers 5 position options, each 10cm apart, and uses a double spring clip system to lock the handle section in at the required length. The parts are carefully machined so they fit together beautifully, and thanks to the cunningly engineered connection system there is no wobble or significant loss of stiffness at either of the joins, even when the paddle is at its longest extension.
More information on the paddle can be found on the NZ Paddle Company website
Each board also comes with
a 6'6 leash, for general use as and when required, and perfectly OK for small/medium sized surf.
(If you want to do full toes-to-the-nose riding, you'll need a longer leash.)
A pair of handles, one for each end. This makes the boards significantly
easier to pull out of the water or to carry, when necessary.
Fixing points on bow or stern (on the 11 and 10'6) for carrying cargo/luggage.
Small dry bag for phone/keys etc, which can be clipped onto your belt or one of the deck fixings. (The bags are not guaranteed dry, but do a pretty good job. However, items like phones, cameras etc are best stored within another polybag to ensure no moisture damage.)
There are also the following extra options:
12v Air Compressor Pump: If you can't be bothered with pumping your board up then let this compressor do the work! A great thing to have in your motorhome anyway for any long journeys, as it'll do your tyres too, and any other inflatable accessories you may have. This is a high quality, heavy duty bit of kit, capable of passing 150L/minute at up to 150psi. It takes 6-7 minutes to fully inflate even the biggest Red Air.
For more information on the pump check out the product pages on the NZ Paddle Company website
Paddleboard Wetsuits: Normal wetsuits aren't much cop for extended paddleboarding, as they can end up chafing around the arms and can really cramp your style. These long john wetsuits are made to our own design to give maximum convenience and freedom of movement for paddleboarding, while still keeping you warm whilst out there on (and in) the water. To increase their use for more prolonged immersion, simply wear with a thermal rashie.
