If you thought your buddy's stand-up paddleboard packed up small, think again--Red Paddle Co made The Compact Paddleboard for exploratory travelers who really want to take their paddling adventures wide and far. Ten years in the making, it folds down to half the size of conventional inflatable SUPs, while retaining the same quality and performance that Red Paddle is known for. Using a new weaving process to create an extra-high-tensile thread matrix, then combining that with a malleable structural laminate (MSL), it packs small but remains exceptionally strong and rigid while inflated. A split deckpad and offset valve create a natural hinge right down the middle of the board for easy folding. Even the bag has been redesigned for carrying efficiency, engineered to apply 53% less downforce on your back, letting you wander cities, ride trains, or even bicycle with your paddleboard. The Compact Paddleboard, once inflated, features a shape that falls in that all-around sweet spot, providing stability on rivers, good tracking on open water, and plenty of maneuverability and glide.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
