8. 10’6″ Ride MSL Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard by Red Paddle Co.
Red Paddle Co.’s 10’6″ Ride is the world’s most popular inflatable SUP, and the ultimate beach toy for adults. It can handle practically any water conditions and rider (regardless of experience, height, and weight). You can paddle along calm, flat bays and lakes, or work your way through choppier ocean currents, thanks to the board’s unique curved shape. It’s impressively thick (4.7”) and stiff for an inflatable, too, even at lower pressures. The 2017 models also have a screw thread compatible with RAM MOUNTS products, so you can fix a fishing pole, cup holder, or camera to your board for maximum entertainment. – Brittany Smith, Associate Digital Editor
