The idea of paddling with more than one person on a SUP is still a very new concept for many of us. But as soon as we saw the new Red Paddle Co Tandem board earlier this year,  a joint adventure paddle was on our SUP bucket list for sure! Myself and Reuben were all setup for a childfree weekend SUP adventure away, camping on the beach etc… but unfortunately the weather had other ideas and made us have to rethink our  Red Tandem adventure plans.

This is the video blog of the paddle we recently did with our 4 year daughter in Cornwall, UK – ‘One board, one family & one micro adventure.’ It wasn’t the long weekend SUP adventure we had initially planned but it was great fun all the same. Paddling to a beautiful remote spot only assessable by water was amazing. And being able to enjoy it together as a family on one board was even better…

Our overview of the Red Paddle Co Tandem

As soon as we saw the Tandem we were keen to give it a try, but weren’t convinced about the idea of paddling together. Would we still be talking to each other at the end of it?!!! And a board can’t be that stable can it? But we soon got the feel of the board and after just 5mins on the water we were off paddling comfortably together as a family of 3. It was a great feeling being able to chat and share our experiences without having to shout across the water and ruin the moment we set-out to enjoy. As Reuben mentions in the blog the stability of the board is unreal and this is something that we didn’t expect. It almost feels like the more weight you put on the board the more stable it becomes.

“For a family or a couple the Red Tandem is a great paddling experience that will have you enjoying the social side of SUP even more…  smiles all round.”

MSL fusioncomposite and airtight coating, MSL involves fusing a second layer of hard-wearing polymer to the dropstitch core at the raw material stage, removing hand gluing errors. The high-tech industrial process saves almost 2kg in weight whilst making the boards stiffer at lower pressures. With our third generation of MSL material now in use, our boards are more durable than ever, if you don’t believe us then check out this videoof us driving a 22 tonne digger over it!


When you unpack your Red Paddle Co board for the first time, inside you’ll find the lightweight Titan pump. It’s the world’s best SUP pump and was created by our expert engineers to make inflating your board a cinch. The secret is in the dual-chamber system and high-flow handle, which pumps air into your board at up to 60mph, ensuring it inflates to the recommended pressure level while using less of your energy. The tandem is also supplied with our classic HP Pump so you can share the load of pumping and both keep going until you have reached the desired pressure.


Our Red Original All Terrain Backpack is a perfect travel partner for paddleboarders everywhere. Enhanced for 2018, it’s now more comfortable to carry thanks to improved straps (which are also easier to stow), while the red detailing adds a stylish, contemporary feel. Find out moreHere


The Voyager Tandem comes fitted with two special fixings that are 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.
