We have 2 favourite all round boards, Red Paddle Co and Gladiator 10’6.

Red Paddle Co 10’6 is the easy choice and if you have the budget its the hassle free, no brainer ‘must buy’.

If your looking for the illusive ‘just as good’ on a budget then read on because we think you may fall in love with the Gladiator 10’6 Pro too!

What’s not to love about this board, updated graphic’s (and name) for 2020. It’s still blue but we think ‘With a bit of a the WOW factor!’ The round nose and straight rails means this board will go in a straight line on longer trips but will catch a wave thanks to the kick tail and rocker on the front. This board has everything you would expect from a premium board.. and here’s the long list.

  • 4.75” thick – The perfect thickness and volume for anyone up too 120kg (read more about thickness and volume here and why 4.75” thick is the key to a quality iSUP.)
  • The gladiator Pro is double laminated with XStrong rail technology, in non geek terms, the rail edge is thinner, it looks great but more importantly this Xstrong rail edge promotes even more stiffness in the board.
  • With handles in the middle and the back of the board, carrying the board on and off the water is easy.
  • Cargo loops at the front for carrying a drybag, picnic or water.
  • US fin box with bendy fin, the fin is simple and clever.. Giving you the option of switching out the fin for surfing, touring and offering a bendy fin to protect against shallow waters and kids been a bit exuberant with the board.
  • The board can be inflated to 26 PSI but 15-20 psi is perfect depending on the weight of the rider.
  • & 3 years warranty.
  • Whats in the package? No need to upgrade the paddle with Gladiator 10’6. The package comes with a very nice carbon nylon paddle that the whole family can use. The board comes with a wheeled bag which is great for traveling and getting your board from house to car when your hands are full of all the beach kit, The double action pump is from Bravo and pumps the board easily and not forgetting the all important leash.

Everything to enjoy SUP adventures!
