Red Paddle Co just announced their newest board to their 2017 SUP fleet. The 22' Dragon. This 4 person race SUP was designed with one purpose in mind, competitive SUP team racing.
Just like traditional Dragon Boats, this 22' long, 34" wide, and 8" thick race SUP holds 4 people inline standing up.
What better way to kick things off then by hosting the inaugural Dragon World Series. Find out more here (as of now I see no Canadian stop.. hopefully that changes)
Check out their teaser trailer.
Here is what Red Paddle has to say about the Dragon
Team SUP racing is taking the sport to the next level, so we’re delighted to introduce the all-new 22’0″ Dragon – Red Paddle Co’s first four-person race board. Don’t be duped by its size: this is one fast machine and with the power of eight arms driving paddles through the water, it can reach an incredible rate of knots.
The 22’0″ Dragon retains the same features as most of the Race family, including profiled nose, slim body, and high sides so that it rises out of the water and slices through the waves. It has eight lateral handles for ease of transport, and is also covered in an extra large decked with a large dragon design, warning other competitors to watch out if they don’t want to get smoked!
Red Paddle Co 2017 boards are just around the corner and we will have our first thoughts as soon as they are announced.
