The countdown has officially begun for the Dragon World Championships 2018, the world’s only dedicated SUP team racing event, where anyone can enter. Red Paddle Co Racing are inviting paddle boarders from all over the world to come together and join them in Lake Fuschl, Austria and with entries flooding in we decided to catch up with the team on everything Dragon!
Tuesday 1st May 2018 fourteen teams from across Russia descended on Novorossiysk to battle in the ultimate SUP race to be crowned the Dragon World Series Novorssiysk champion.
With teams from Moscow, Tomsk, Tuapse, Sochi and Novorossiysk having victory within their grasp, anticipation was high as the semi-finals began. Following a burst of speed at the start and a neck and neck race, team Four Axes disappointingly fell into the water at the finish line. This led to them facing team Zmey Gorynich in the race for 3rd place which proved to be an epic battle.
'My favourite saying when getting a job done is "Team work is dream work" and it was never more true than the finals of the Red Dragon World Championship. Adrian, Tremayne, Jacob and I who regularly compete against each other joined forces and crushed it. Dream work indeed. Thanks Red.'
- Jason, Team Paddle Barbados
“At the Red Paddle Championships, I had the most fun and excitement I could have ever imagined at a race. I met and bonded with friends that share the passion for the sport from all over the world and came home with precious memories. The location was absolutely amazing and the event was super organized. The staff couldn't have been more supportive in helping me not only have the best race I could have had, but also an incredible experience of a lifetime. I've been impatiently going back to their website to check whether this year's schedule have been posted yet!”
