We are proud to announce the introduction of the first ever, dedicated Red Dragon team racing class in partnership with some of the world’s most prestigious SUP events.

Having joined forces with events such as the Alpine Lakes Tour, the Euro Tour and SUP 11 Cities we have set out to redefine the competitive SUP racing scene. Competitors and spectators alike will have the chance to race the 22-foot, four person Red Dragon boards at break-neck speeds to see if they can become a Dragon Series Champion. The inclusion of Red Dragon class, exclusive to Red Paddle Co, means participants will benefit from the power of eight arms and team camaraderie to boost morale during the tougher sections of races. The calendar also includes Red Dragon team racing class at DSRF Kantrum events, culminating at the Copenhagen crossing to kick start the ISA World Championships.

“It is fantastic to be able to throw the SUP competitive racing scene open for all by creating an internationally recognised, team SUP racing division. Whether it’s your first SUP event or you’re a seasoned expert, being part of a team makes everything seem a little less daunting and a lot more fun, especially long-distance event’s such as the SUP 11-Cities!” – Red Paddle Co, Brand Communications Manager, George Shillito.

Furthermore, each of the events will be officially recognised as a ‘Dragon World Series’ event, meaning every participant will be granted instant qualification to the Dragon World Championships in Barbados, on October 28-30th 2017.
