Ever run your inflatable over with a 22 ton digger? That’s a test of durability!

Global Partner

If it’s a RED PADDLE CO. inflatable, you can!  Check out the 10th and final video in Red Paddle Co.’s “Board vs.” series to get a gander at the strength and durability this board brand can offer.

Red Paddle Co. proves its inflatable boards are quality equipment!

If you’ve been watching Red Paddle Co.‘s video series on product testing the durability of their inflatables, you know this final test is NO JOKE.  This poor board, the 10’6 Ride model, has been slathered in peanut butter, used in a motor cross rally and NOW gets itself RUN OVER (for fun quotient and proof of purchase) by a 22.5 ton cat digger.  DO NOT TRY this at home!  I think the idea is to put that board back in the water and GO HAVE SOME FUN with it!

ADVENTURE IN A BAG. that’s Red Paddle Co.  An inflatable you can trust to hold air, maintain its shape and go through h*ll and back to serve YOU better.  But let them do the testing.  YOU just go have FUN with it.

Stay tuned for the final video wrap-up of Red Paddle Co.’s Top 10 durability tests all in one shot.  It will keep you laughing, impressed and it just might get you motivated to get out on the water 😉

Enjoy the ride!

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at editor@standupjournal.com . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
