A leading watersports brand, specialised in paddleboards

Tushingham Sails owns the world-leading inflatable Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) brand, Red Paddle Co.

Red Paddle is the world’s only dedicated inflatable SUP brand, sold in 60 countries.

We provided £4m as a combined debt and equity package to allow the business to maintain its leading position in an attractive and growing niche in the watersports sector.

Investment rationale

The global SUP market is in a significant growth phase. The funding will allow the business to invest in working capital to fund further international growth.

We sold our stake in Vian Marketing, the holding company of Tushingham Sails in November 2021.
