Unleash the Dragon
A 22'0" inflatable board?! A multi-person SUP race?! Have Red Paddle Co gone mad?!
On May 20th SUPSA - Gold Coast and Red Paddle Co are hosting the first ever Australian Dragon World Series. These races are the qualifier that allow winners to head to the World Championships happening in Austria later this year. Last year's event in Barbados went amazingly well, so well that they have decided to do it again!
The Dragon board is a beast, but don't be put off by it's size. The concept of this multi-person SUP boards are for fun and all abilities...and so are the Dragon events. With 22'0" of board beneath your feet there's plenty of room to wobble for a the bit and then once you hit that rhythm the Dragons fly.
There is going to be food, prizes and hopefully some exciting races. So gather those 3 competitive friends and come and be part of the release of the Dragon! Maybe you'll be the first ever Australian Dragon slayer!
