New @ PADDLEexpo 2016 – RED PADDLE, The Red Dragon
Mixing the intensity of racing with the camaraderie of team spirit. The four-person Red Dragon is the world’s first Dedicated Global Team Racing Concept. At 22 feet long, 34” wide and 8” thick the Red Dragon is a world apart from any other board on the market. Built using industry leading MSL© technology, The Red Dragon is light, rigid and exceptionally easy to transport as a checked bag on a plane.
Through constant innovation the Red Dragon is a showcase for the possibilities of the inflatable technology. The board is fitted with eight lateral handles for easy handling and explosive race starts whilst the giant dragon emblazoned across its extra-large, high grip deck-pad warns off any rival teams who don’t want to get smoked! Not only that, but it has been designed to keep unnecessary waste to a minimum as the deck pad colour-way alternates per board to utilise the ‘off cuts’ of the previous board.
The ‘Dragon World Series’ is the first dedicated global team racing series which will see teams battling it out in national qualifiers. From these events, the best teams will advance to go head to head at the inaugural Dragon World Championships due to take place later next year!

The Red Dragon opens SUP to the world of team racing where it is equally exciting to paddle or spectate. The Red Dragon brings intense, close racing close to shore. Its profiled nose, slim body and high sides, teamed with the power of eight arms driving the paddles through the water, guarantees the 22’0” Dragon will be the fastest board on the water.
It’s time to unleash the Dragon!
