Kelly Lefkowitz, Rio SUP’s CEO and Co-Founder commented, “We are stoked to become the exclusive dealer in Texas for Red Paddle Co. We have seen a lot of board manufacturers getting into the Inflatable market, but we chose to carry Red Paddle Co because hey set the standard for inflatable SUP boards. These boards are nearly indestructible. We’ve seen a huge spike in interest in the inflatable boards, too. People who live in apartments, which don’t allow room to store a 12’ or 14’ fixed board, those who travel a lot or folks who drive small cars or even motorcycles can take their SUP boards with them now.”
Red Paddle Co-founder John Hibbard commented: "At Red Paddle Co we believe that riding an inflatable SUP board should not be a compromise and have taken the inflatable board concept on a stage to produce amazing performance that is also super transportable. We enjoy working with people that share our vision, so we are really happy to welcome Rio SUP as our latest retailer. We know that working with the team at Rio will allow people to experience first class service backed up by great product knowledge.”

About Red Paddle Co:
Red Paddle Co was founded in 2007 after having spent time paddling all types of boards in all types of conditions. Red Paddle Co hasn’t just jumped on a bandwagon after seeing how popular the sport was becoming. The founders were paddlers first, before starting Red Paddle Co, and they are still paddlers now. With an increasing number of copycat brands in both the hard and Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board marketplace the choice for the customer is endless. Red Paddle Co believes in challenging the status quo. Red Paddle Co believes that everyone who wants to paddle board should be able to, regardless of transport or storage constraints, and that buying an inflatable board should not be a compromise.
About Stand Up Paddling:
Stand Up Paddle boarding, or SUP, is the fastest growing outdoor sport in the world. Using a canoe-like paddle and standing atop a larger version of a traditional surfboard, paddlers propel themselves through the water with side-to-side paddle strokes. Stand Up Paddling offers a core workout with a cadence much like swimming or cycling, offering a low impact, recreational way to get in shape and enjoy nature while working your entire core.
