Durable and cost-effective lifesaving equipment

We offer three inflatable lifesaving boards, designed to work in all conditions they may be needed in.

Rescue SUP

Our Rescue SUP is the definitive calm-water crowd management tool.

Prone Boards

Our Prone Boards are perfect for training and lifesaving delivery. In surf or on flat-water.

The perfect balance between high-end lifesaving performance and practical usability.

Our Inflatable boards deliver top-quality performance, whilst being highly durable and cost-effective. They are a fantastic substitute for a traditional hard board: whether for training or operational lifesaving purposes, in surf or flat-water.

Super Tough Construction

Packed full of incredible features and patented innovations the Red Rescue Prone Range is built to endure the harshest of environments.

We use our industry leading technology MSL Tough*: a high definition drop-stitch which is exclusive to Red and delivers a long-lasting outershell. Our 72 hour construction process is 10x the Industry average for an Inflatable Board and we have the industry’s most rigorous quality control process, ensuring that we never compromise on stiffness, durability or performance.

The boards deflate and pack down into our specially designed backpack/wheeled carry bag and our double-chamber Titan 2 Pump reduces the amount of time and effort it takes to inflate your board by half.

Pulling on over 15 years of experience in inflatable technology and design – every aspect of your board package has been tailored to always deliver performance when under pressure.

Whether training or lifesaving, hardboards are large and heavy. When they collide with a lifesaver or a member of the public, they cause serious injuries. For the increased safety and protection of everyone in the water: Go Inflatable, Go Red Rescue.


Red Rescue Boards are cheaper than most hard boards and need fewer repairs. You need less space to store them and you will need to replace them less frequently. This means more money for you to spend on other parts of your Lifesaving Service

“We believe that riding an inflatable rescue board should deliver an authentic experience for lifesavers. It should be built to perform like a hard board but have all the added benefits of being inflatable. We never compromise on performance, safety or reliability.

Grip Where It’s Needed

Our super grippy, Red embossed EVA deckpad keeps the lifesaver in position. After years of testing, we removed the deckpad from the front third of the board to create a casualty glide area to allow for easy positioning and onboarding of the casualty. We added a section of extra grippy, diamond-cut deckpad at the tail for increased surf performance and durability

Grab and go using one of the many padded grab and reinforces handles: strategically placed for comfort & function during training and recovery.

All Day Comfort

Our SSR (Seriously Smooth Rails) utilise an additional, widened rail tape so that the seams won’t become a chafing area.

We’ve also strategically placed our twin grab-handles so that the board can easily be straddled without extra rubbing. When you are on a board for hours on end – comfort makes a big difference.

Stand Out In The Crowd

We designed our boards to be bold with their striking blue and yellow colours.

If you are wondering why we didn’t chose red and yellow, it’s because UV light fades red to pink, very quickly. These colours will stay vibrant for years. Ensuring you can always be noticed quickly.

Take Things Up A Level

Our Rescue Boards weigh 1-2kg less than your standard hard board alternative: that difference would be a lot more if you are talking about the typically dinged and waterlogged boards often still being used all over the world.

This weight saving improves your Lifesavers response times on land and increases their board control on the water. On top of this, if your Lifesaver does lose the board in the surf, it decreases the severity of any potential injuries that the board could inflict.

Kate Doison

“When training new lifeguards, the traditional rescue board can seem quite daunting – big and heavy with no leash! A lighter, more forgiving board is great in a training environment ……As storage costs can be high, the ability to roll these boards up for the winter, or sling into the back of the van to get to the beach/event also makes life a lot easier.”
