More Time on the Water

We worked with Groms across the world, building this board to specifically cater to the needs of Junior and Youth paddlers serious about surf lifesaving.

Ask any lifesaving club, anywhere in the world what their most used and abused board is and the answer is always the same – Nipper / Junior boards. Kids are the ultimate test for kit.

They need boards that can take a battering, can easily be carried, stored and still shred on the water. A board that will take them from zero to hero.

Boards available from the 2nd week in August 2024.

Made for the Next Generation

The Red Rescue Inflatable JUNIOR PRONE is the ultimate transition board for Junior and Youth Lifesavers taking their first steps from the Nipper Pathway, towards full-size boards. Built to last the 8’10 Junior Prone has been designed for total convenience and control.

Fast, light and responsive, the Junior Prone helps the future stars of lifesaving sport and the career lifeguards get to grips with a larger board. It allows them to build on their competency and confidence in surf, as well as their technical skills and stamina for flat-water paddling.

At 125 litres and 18.5” wide, this board is rapid. It’s gradual rocker line makes it playful in the surf and super fast on flat water. The combination of our industry leading MSL construction and patented RSS stiffening battens make this board feel more like a hard board, than any other inflatable on the planet.

The Package

Our Junior Surf Lifesaving board comes with everything you need to take your training on the move. Allowing young lifesavers the freedom to easily travel with their board, set it up on their own and hit the water.

60 Litre Dry Bag:

Our super rugged, 60 litre dry-bag backpack with welded and taped seams has ample room for the Junior board, along with its pump and accessories. The backpack set-up is lightweight and easy to carry, making it easier than ever for kids to go on the move with their board. Allowing them the freedom to grow, learn and have fun at their own pace.

If they are keeping their board inflated, then the bag doubles up as an epic wet-kit bag.

Titans II Pump:

Inflatable rescue boards need to be pumped to 20-22psi to give absolute rigidity. The Titan II is the world’s only double chamber pump designed for purpose, to get your board to pressure in half the time.

The Titan II has a compact, ergonomic design to increase ease and efficiency blowing out air at over 90kmph. Folding feet and removable handle help reduce the pack size whilst the integrated pressure gauge, hose connection and twin gear system allows lifeguards to get on the water fast.

SAFER SERVICE

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.

SAVE MONEY

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
